Astros | Jose Altuve working on career streak

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 18:50:15 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve extended his career high on-base streak to 32 games Wednesday, June 29, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He was a home run short of the cycle in this game, and finished the three-game set with eight hits in 14 at-bats with two RBIs and six runs scored. He has also hit safely in 11 straight games. Manager A.J. Hinch said Altuve might get a few days off during the team's next homestand to rest.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve also swiped his 21st base, while driving in his 46th run of the season. He is such a valuable contributor for fantasy owners and DFS players, as he contributes in so many different categories with a combination of speed and power.

Furthermore, he's tied for eighth in the majors with 56 runs and has 13 homers and 45 RBI to boot. Simply put, he's does it all at a position where it is difficult sometimes to find players that can perform as well as he does in two or three categories.

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve has reached base in 29 consecutive games, which is the longest active streak in the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: As great as Altuve has been over the past few years, this season might arguably be his best one yet. Not only does he continue to reach base at a torrid pace, but his power numbers are up across the board, too, being on pace for career highs in home runs and RBI -- all the while he continues to rack up his usual high number of hits and steals. He's easily one of the most valuable players on offense in all of fantasy baseball.

He also now has 41 RBI -- easily putting him on pace for a career high as well -- as he continues to be one of the most valuable players in all of fantasy baseball.

Astros | Colby Rasmus, Jason Castro sitting out

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:21:45 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, June 19. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while C Evan Gattis will start at catcher. INF Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting sixth. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Worth and Marisnick have not done much at the plate this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Altuve is a must-start option in all leagues, while Gattis is not a great option at this point because he is on a cold streak.
