Rockies | Several COL regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:25:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Saturday, May 28. OF Ryan Raburn will bat sixth and play left field, INF Cristhian Adames will play second base and bat seventh and C Dustin Garneau will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is 10-for-27 (.370) with three home runs and 10 RBI at home this year but is just 1-for-6 in his career versus Bumgarner, making him a risky play in DFS this afternoon. Adames (2-for-3) and Garneau (1-for-3) have enjoyed modest success against the veteran lefty but shouldn't be viewed as much more than potential sources of salary cap relief.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu batting back in the two-hole

Thu, 26 May 2016 13:20:31 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Lemahieu's fantasy value jumps significantly if he sticks in the two-hole, as his on-base skills and plus-speed fit the role nicely. And obviously, hitting in front of the two best hitters on the team will help him pad the run column. He is a viable option at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues and currently sits with a respectable 24 runs, two home runs, 14 RBI, five stolen bases and .307/.361/.427 slash line.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu batting second vs. Red Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:47:24 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: With Trevor Story out of the lineup, LeMahieu jumps into the two-hole. LeMahieu's fantasy value receives a fleeting boost, and it increases his upside in daily contests. He is having a nice season with 24 runs, two home runs, 14 RBI, five stolen bases and a .310/.366/.434 slash line, and LeMahieu remains a viable starter at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu sitting vs. Cards

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:17:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at the keystone and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu is off to a solid start with 23 runs, two home runs, 13 RBI, five stolen bases and a .301/.361/.436 slash line. There aren't many fantasy formats where he should be on the waiver wire, especially with him calling Coors Field home. Descalso doesn't move the fantasy needle outside of being a desperation flier in daily contests Thursday.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:02:33 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, May 6. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and hitting sixth, with OF Gerardo Parra shifting over to center field. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a notorious lefty killer, but MadBum isn't your typical southpaw on the hill tonight. It could prove difficult for Raburn to turn a profit in daily affairs. Parra becomes one to avoid in the tough lefty-lefty matchup. LeMahieu gains value with the move all the way up the order, but he should be seen as a contrarian play because of the matchup.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:05:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Nick Hundley are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Raburn is hitting sixth, 2B Cristhian Adames is hitting ninth and C Tony Wolters hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has an impressive .361-4-8 line in 36 at-bats. He's certainly worth the low-end flyer against Cesar Vargas. Adames is hitting .148 and isn't worth the stream in Petco Park. Wolters hasn't hit much since his first couple of games and isn't worth the start.

Rockies | Colorado has lineup overhaul

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:50:49 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, OF Carlos Gonzalez, 3B Nolan Arenado and OF Gerardo Parra all moved up one spot to hit in the first four spots in the lineup. 2B DJ LeMahieu was dropped to No. 9.

Fantasy Tip: All five are worth daily considerations at their respective positions. LeMahieu is just 2-for-16 (.125) the last seven days, and he loses some luster hitting ninth. He's still worth starting at the right price against Kenta Maeda.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu available in a pinch

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 21:04:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu (groin) did not play Monday, April 18, against the Cincinnati Reds, although he was available off the bench as a pinch hitter.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu should be avoided in NL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu nursing groin injury

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:07:31 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu (groin) tweaked his groin during the game against the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 15, and he is sitting out against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, April 18, in hopes the injury does not become chronic. OF Gerardo Parra is leading off, and INF Cristhian Adames is playing second base and batting seventh against Reds SP Dan Straily Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on LeMahieu. He is a serviceable fantasy contributor at the keystone who chips in across all categories, and calling Coors Field home also helps. Parra receives a slight uptick in value setting the table for Colorado, especially in the stolen base column, whereas Adames is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:21:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is receiving the day off against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, April 16. INF Cristhian Adames will lead off and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies are facing Jake Arrieta this afternoon, so Adames is not a recommended play in daily fantasy leagues. LeMahieu should be able to return to the lineup Sunday, April 17.
