Astros | Jose Altuve continues to shine

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:49:13 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve leads the majors in batting average and hits and is currently riding a four-game multi-hit streak. He's batting .290 at home this season and is .500 (18-for-36) against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim this year.

Fantasy Tip: What can't the pint-sized Altuve do? The answer is really nothing. He's been the most valuable fantasy player so far this year with his league-leading .357 average, league-leading .427 on-base percentage, league-leading 133 hits and league-leading 25 steals. Not to mention he's also slugged 15 homers and driven in 54 runs. Ho hum.

Astros | Jose Altuve has four hits

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:49:38 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve had four hits Tuesday, July 19, in a 4-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Even though George Springer is now the leadoff hitter, Altuve is still a big part of the Houston lineup. With a .354 average and a .562 slugging percentage, Altuve is definitely a must-play in DFS and regular formats. The only question is will Altuve win another American League batting title? Altuve has reached safely in 34 consecutive road games, the second-longest streak in Astros history.

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 | 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.

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 20:52:29 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve was hitless in four at-bats Friday, July 1, against the Chicago White Sox to snap his hitting streak at 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve is still hitting a ridiculous .408 (20-for-49) over the past 12 games. He remains a top-notch fantasy second baseman across all formats and DFS play.

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.

Astros | Jose Altuve posts 31st multi-hit game

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:40:02 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve finished 2-for-4 with a walk, scored twice and stole a pair of bases against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve is batting a major-league best .350 after tonight's effort and one of only four players with 20 steals. 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.
