Astros | Carlos Gomez takes a seat

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:08:50 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Marwin Gonzalez moves to left field and is hitting second, while OF Colby Rasmus takes over in center field and is batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez's disappointing season continues with his .143 (8-for-56) average in July with two homers and 14 strikeouts. At this point, there isn't much hope for a turnaround, and he could start losing playing time as a result. It's hard to justify holding him in mixed formats.

Astros | Houston sitting three lefties

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 11:58:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, 1B A.J. Reed and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 17. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting eighth. 2B Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and is batting second. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has been productive at times at the plate the season but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Worth and Marisnick are hitting under .200 this season and can be avoided in all leagues.

Astros | Three Astros not in the lineup

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:24:19 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, 1B A.J. Reed and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Oaland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Sunday, July 10. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting eighth. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and is batting second. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting .280 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent option in deeper mixed leagues. Worth and Marisnick are both hitting under .200 this season and are not great options.

Astros | Colby Rasmus remains sidelined Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:25:39 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (ear) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Saturday, July 9. INF/OF Marwin Gonzalez will bat leadoff and play left field. In addition, C/DH Evan Gattis will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter, C Jason Castro will start behind the plate and bat eighth and OF Jake Marisnick will play right field and hit ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is a useful player to have in AL-only seasonal leagues due to his positional versatility but he is not a great option in DFS today. Gattis is just 1-for-18 during the month of July and should also be avoided, while Castro and Marisnick are not recommended options in any fantasy format.

Astros | Colby Rasmus, A.J. Reed sit against southpaw

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 14:25:32 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus and 1B A.J. Reed are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Thursday, July 7. OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is hitting eighth, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is at first base and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Against the tough lefty Hill, Rasmus and Reed are both being rested. Marisnick has some speed and is perhaps more useful in real life than fantasy for his defense. He's a low-end outfield pick in DFS. Gonzalez, on the other hand, is much more attractive as a value pick hitting high in the order.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez on the bench

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 14:16:53 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Wade LeBlanc Wednesday, July 6. 1B A.J. Reed will start at first base. C Jason Castro will start at catcher, while C Evan Gattis will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez probably will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Reed and Gattis have value in daily fantasy leagues because of their power potential and should be owned in most mixed leagues. Gattis has extra value because of his catcher eligibility. Castro is only hitting .209 this season and should only be used in AL-only leagues.

Astros | A.J. Reed out Monday

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 07:39:22 -0700

Houston Astros 1B A.J. Reed is out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 1B Marwin Gonzalez hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has a .253-6-22 line with eight steals on the year. He's a fringe consideration against Wade Miley.

Astros | Houston sitting two lefties

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 10:10:32 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and OF Colby Rasmus are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, July 3. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is hitting second, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting only .200 with two RBI over the last seven days and probably can be avoided in most leagues. Marisnick is still hitting under .200 this season and does not have much value in most leagues.

Astros | Several Houston regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:39:04 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, C Jason Castro and 1B A.J. Reed are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Saturday, July 2. INF Marwin Gonzalez will hit second and play first base, C Evan Gattis will start behind the plate and bat sixth, INF Danny Worth will bat eighth and play second base and OF Jake Marisnick will bat ninth and play left field. 2B Jose Altuve is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is batting .429 over the past week and is 2-for-6 with a home run versus Sale in his career, making him a viable catching option this afternoon in DFS. Worth and Marisnick are nothing more than desperation sources of salary cap relief.

Astros | Evan Gattis resting Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:52:46 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. 1B A.J. Reed is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first and hitting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Reed has heaps of potential, mainly because of his elite power, but he has yet to show it at the major league level. He can't be trusted in any fantasy format right now but should be owned in most leagues. Gonzalez hit .298 with two home runs, nine RBI and three steals in June and has appeal as a value play in DFS formats.
