Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in an 11-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Thursday, Sept. 3, and he has homered in four straight games.
Fantasy Tip: In addition to the home run streak, Arenado ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has scored at least one run and driven in at least one run in six straight. Make room for his salary at FantasyScore.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 21:38:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has four homers and 11 RBI over his last two games, and he has six multi-homer games since July 24. Don't hesitate to pay up for him at FantasyScore, especially if the Rockies are at home.

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Thursday, Sept. 3. C Buster Posey is moving to first base, allowing C Hector Sanchez to start behind the plate and bat sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is easily the highest-priced catcher on FantasyScore tonight, but it's worth paying up for him against a hittable lefty in the majors' best hitting parks. Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) may not be a bad pick, either, as salary cap relief.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) checks out as a potential low-priced flier at FantasyScore Thursday, especially with the game being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, Sept. 1. C Dustin Garneau is catching and hitting eighth against Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.
Fantasy Tip: Garneau ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has just two hits in 12 at-bats for the Rockies in limited action recently. He can be left alone by daily gamers tonight.

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, Sept. 1. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at second base and is hitting seventh against Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.
Fantasy Tip: Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is purely a desperation deep sleeper on FantasyScore as a source of salary cap relief. He's hitting only .216 (32-for-148) with four home runs and 20 RBI on the year.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:57:28 -0700
Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, Sept. 1. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and hitting second against Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.
Fantasy Tip: Adames will be making his season debut for the Rockies and won't be available on FantasyScore tonight.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:58:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Arenado ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has lived up to the hype surrounding him this offseason. He has a .276/.314/.547 slash line with 31 home runs and 96 RBI and is worth targeting whenever he lands in a favorable matchup and when playing home games.

Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1. 1B Ben Paulsen will start on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Rosario was called up as rosters expanded Tuesday, and he could see valuable time at first base down the stretch. Give him a look in NL-only and very deep mixed leagues if he sees enough at-bats. Unfortunately for those looking for a bargain on FantasyScore, the first game of the double dip won't count.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 10:42:14 -0700
Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin for the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1. OF Kyle Parker is starting in right field and hitting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Parker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) won't be available on FantasyScore for the first game of this doubleheader, so you can pay no attention to him.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 09:43:00 -0700
Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick is 1-1 with an 8.44 ERA in four starts against the Arizona Diamondbacks this season, and he's allowed five home runs in those games. Kendrick faces the D-backs again Tuesday, Sept. 1, in the second game of a doubleheader. It's his first start back since landing on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been bad all year for Colorado, posting a 6.43 ERA and 1.54 WHIP while fanning only 4.7 hitters per nine innings. Especially coming off the DL, he's one to avoid on FantasyScore. Stacking Diamondbacks hitters against him is a solid strategy, too.

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Monday, Aug. 31. 1B Matt McBride will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is out of the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .176 this season and should not be a fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) slump has coincided with a road trip, and when the Rockies return home, he should return to lineups at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed three earned runs or less in five of his last six starts, and not surprisingly, he has only made on start at home during the stretch. If he draws a friendly road matchup, he could be worth a look as a sleeper at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Hundley ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Garneau ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has two hits in nine at-bats since joining the team and is not a great starting option at this point.
