Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt sits Monday

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 07:49:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is out of the lineup Monday, June 20, with 1B Phil Gosselin hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has a .253-1-5 this season and doesn't have a lot of luster in the two-hole ahead of Jake Lamb instead of Goldy. The D-Backs face Jeremy Hellickson, but Gosselin isn't a fruitful DFS play.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt extends hit, RBI streaks

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 15:08:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and stole a base against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, June 18. Goldschmidt has at least one hit in 12 consecutive games and driven in at least one run in seven straight.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt got off to a bit of a rough start in April before picking up the pace in May, but he has been sizzling in June, hitting .349 with four homers, 12 RBI and three steals. While he has an uphill battle to reach the heights he did last season (.321, 33 home runs, 110 RBI, 21 steals in 2015; .290, 14, 45 and nine, respectively, in 2016), it is good to see Goldy playing like one of the best hitters in the game again. He's a must-start in all leagues.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt has 10-game hit streak

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:41:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has an active 10-game hitting streak and has reached base in 20 consecutive games with a .370 batting average during the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy star is finding his form and is up to 36 runs, 12 home runs, 42 RBI and eight stolen bases with a .281/.423/.489 slash line. The five-category production makes him an elite contributor. Continue to start him confidently in all fantasy formats.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Goldie reach a dozen HRs

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 23:21:01 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt and 3B Jake Lamb each hit solo home runs Monday, June 13, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The homers were the 12th for each player.

Fantasy Tip: Everyone knows Goldschmidt is a must-start fantasy option, but Lamb has quickly emerged this season to join him in the category. He has 39 RBIs, although his .263 average could certainly use a little improvement.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt on hot streak

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 05:27:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 against the Miami Marlins Friday, June 10. He is hitting .396 over his last 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt struggled at the plate earlier in the season but has at least one hit in 19 of his last 23 games with eight multi-hit games during that span. Goldschmidt should be a starting candidate in all leagues moving forward.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt living on base

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:01:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt has reached base safely in 22 of his last 23 games with four home runs, 18 RBI and 19 walks during the span.

Fantasy Tip: It's difficult to imagine a player with 31 runs, 11 home runs, 37 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .272/.429/.490 slash line is underachieving, but Goldschmidt hasn't fully hit his form yet this season. Continue to view the veteran as an elite fantasy option, and it is likely the best is still ahead in terms of production.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt cranks 11th homer

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:44:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with his 11th home run of the season Tuesday, June 7, opposite the Tampa Bay Rays. He finished with two runs, two RBI, and he also laced a double.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time until Goldschmidt came around, and that's exactly what he's been doing over the past few weeks. The perennial NL MVP candidate was hitting as low as .222 on May 15, but since then, Goldy has literally raised his batting average 50 points up to .272. Given his track record, it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see him continue on his run. He's still one of the best sluggers in the game.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt heating up

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 11:06:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is hitting .364 (20-for-55) with 13 RBI and a 1.056 OPS in his last 16 games. He also has a career .333 average with three doubles, one home run and seven RBI in 12 games at Wrigley Field, where he'll be playing Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Goldy's .263/.419/.468 slash line leaves something to be desired as a likely top-three fantasy pick in most leagues, but he does have 10 home runs and 33 RBI on the year. He's been hot lately and could be on the verge of dominating at the plate like he did last year. Continue to ride him in all leagues.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt collects three hits

Tue, 31 May 2016 21:23:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt reached base four times on Tuesday, May 31, going 3-for-4, drawing a walk and scoring. It was Goldschmidt's first three-hit game since Aug. 22, 2015.

Fantasy Tip: After going 0-for-2 against the New York Mets on May 15, Goldschmidt was batting .222 on the season. In 14 games since, he's 19-for-47 (.404) with three home runs, 13 RBI, eight runs scored and three stolen bases. Goldschmidt is among the elite hitters in baseball so it was always a good bet he'd straighten things out, but it might be a good time to take a run at him on the trade market while his overall numbers are still a bit underwhelming.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt stuffs the stat line

Sun, 29 May 2016 05:28:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with two runs, a double, a two-run home run and a stolen base during Arizona's 8-7 win over the San Diego Padres Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: It was been a bit of a rough start for Goldschmidt, as he sits with a .250/.413/.453 slash line, but his counting stats are solid: 26 runs, nine home runs, 30 RBI and six stolen bases. The cross-category production is what made him an early pick in drafts this spring, and he's been turning it on with 12 runs, three home runs, 14 RBI, three stolen bases and a .302/.425/.508 line over his past 18 games. Barring injury, Goldschmidt will be among the best fantasy contributors when it's all said and done, especially since his mediocre start appears to be behind him.
