Rockies | Tyler Anderson continues solid work

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:41:52 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson dropped to 0-2 after losing in his outing Wednesday, June 29, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He didn't pitch badly, though, going six innings and holding the opposition to three runs (two earned) on eight hits and two walks, including a home run. He also struck out six.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss, Anderson was able to pick up his second quality start in four tries. Furthermore, he's now pitched into the sixth inning or deeper in all of his assignments, while allowing two earned runs or less in each as well. It's risky tailing any pitcher in fantasy that resides in Colorado, but Anderson at least merits consideration with how he's pitched thus far. He should at least be an option based on certain matchups.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:22:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) and C Nick Hundley are all out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and hitting second, 2B Daniel Descalso is at second and batting sixth and C Tony Wolters is doing the catching and hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Story and LeMahieu have been dinged up lately. Story returned to the lineup yesterday and LeMahieu should return any day. Adames, Descalso and Wolters don't bring much to the table offensively and should all be considered low-end DFS options this afternoon against a strong pitcher.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon on a tear

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 02:02:12 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon continued his recent offensive surge against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, June 28, going 3-for-5 with three RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon has seven multi-hit efforts over his last nine contests and 17-for-41 with five home runs, 12 RBI and 12 runs scored over that same stretch. While playing half of his games at Coors Field helps, the 29-year-old's home-road splits aren't dramatically different like some other Rockies' hitters. While he only has six steals this year after a career-high 43 last year, Blackmon is still checking four of the five boxes in fantasy and makes for a solid second or third fantasy outfielder.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez erupts yet again

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 01:31:33 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez homered for the third straight game and finished 4-for-5 with five RBI, including a three-run shot, and scored twice in a 14-9 setback against the Toronto Blue Jays at Coors Field on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Once upon a time earlier this season, CarGo went 24 games without a homer and 17 games without an RBI. No more. He is a ridiculous 8-for-12 with three home runs, 12 RBI and has scored five runs over the last three contests. Gonzalez has 29 RBI this month - seven more than he had in April and May combined - and is hitting .368 this month. Start him.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn scratched

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 17:05:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28, because of an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Charlie Blackmon was expected to receive a day off because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher but is in the lineup with Raburn out. Blackmon should be starting in all fantasy leagues.

Rockies | Trevor Story back in lineup

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:49:12 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Story has made a very strong case at the halfway point for NL Rookie of the Year with a .271 average, 19 home runs and 50 RBI at the 6. He's been extremely valuable given his position and should immediately be returned to all fantasy starting lineups.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu hopes to play Wednesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:27:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) says his left knee contusion is better, and he hopes to play against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu is a viable starting option at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues and sits with 47 runs, five home runs, 29 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .327/.395/.498 slash line. Stay tuned for updates on his status for Wednesday.

Blue Jays | Still no Justin Smoak vs. Rockies

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:13:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: In an NL park, Smoak is the odd-man out without the ability to utilize a designated hitter. He's batting .157 in June and has a single multi-hit showing this month. At this point, it's best to limit your ownership of Smoak to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rockies | Two more RBIs for Nolan Arenado

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:32:39 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado went 1-for-5 with a pair of RBIs, a run scored and three strikeouts Monday, July 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners had to take the good with the bad Monday, as the hit and RBIs were nice, but the whiffs hurt the bottom line. He is up to 65 RBIs and it isn't even the All-Star break yet. He has hits in 10 straight games.

Rockies | Three-hit game for Brandon Barnes

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:32:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double, run scored and RBI Monday, June 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes has a pair of three-hit games over the past three outings, and he is worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues and DFS as a salary saver option while hot.

Rockies | Jon Gray whiffs eight in victory

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:31:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray allowed four earned runs, five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win Monday, June 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He threw 67 of his 101 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has emerged as a fairly dependable fantasy option in NL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats and DFS play, lasting at least six innings in six of the past seven outings.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez drives in three

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:31:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, two runs scored and a walk Monday, June 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: CarGo has three straight multi-hit games with two homers and seven RBIs over his past two outings. He has turned up the intensity in the month of June with eight doubles, seven homers, 24 RBIs and a 1.000-plus OPS. He is a must-start fantasy option in DFS regardless of price.

Rockies | Trevor Story, DJ LeMahieu avoid DL

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:58:25 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger) and 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) both will avoid the disabled list after tests showed that they both did not have breaks or tears. LeMahieu said he felt "a lot better today" and is expected to return Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Story hit his 19th home run of the season Sunday before getting injured, and he has been one of the more productive fantasy shortstops this season. LeMahieu leads the Rockies with a .327 average, and he also has 20-steal potential. Return both players to lineups in all formats once they're back in the lineup, which will likely come Tuesday.

Rockies | Jake McGee to make rehab outing

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:32:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jake McGee (knee) will make a rehab outing for Class A Modesto Tuesday, June 28, and he'll likely return from the disabled list Saturday, July 2. McGee said his arm "feels fresh" after throwing a 25-pitch side session Monday, June 27. McGee will pitch again for Modesto Thursday, June 30. The Rockies will wait to decide if McGee will return to the closer role. RP Carlos Estevez has filled in with McGee injured and has gone 4-for-6 in save opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: McGee was 14-for-17 in save chances for the Rockies this year, and he blew a save against the Padres when suffered his knee injury. He's probably Colorado's best option, but the Rockies could go with a committee in the ninth when McGee returns. Regardless, McGee should've been stashed in all fantasy leagues while he's been on the DL. Stay tuned.

Rockies | Trevor Story, DJ LeMahieu sitting

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:57:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger) and 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) are both out of the starting lineup Monday, June 27. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and hitting second, while 2B Daniel Descalso starts at second base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Both Story and LeMahieu are dinged up right now, but both of their injuries aren't serious and shouldn't keep them out much longer. Get them both back into your lineups whenever they return. Adames and Descalso are both desperation daily picks this evening, with Adames being slightly more attractive because of his placement near the top of the order.
