Astros | Colby Rasmus sitting vs. Yankees

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:28:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and batting second against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus hit seven home runs in April and has just four since, as he's struggled to the point of finding himself out of the lineup frequently. He isn't worth a roster spot outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Tucker is 3-for-8 with three extra-base hits since being recalled from the minors, and he's a potential flier in daily contests Monday.

Astros | Carlos Gomez takes a seat

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:08:50 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Marwin Gonzalez moves to left field and is hitting second, while OF Colby Rasmus takes over in center field and is batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez's disappointing season continues with his .143 (8-for-56) average in July with two homers and 14 strikeouts. At this point, there isn't much hope for a turnaround, and he could start losing playing time as a result. It's hard to justify holding him in mixed formats.

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 | Colby Rasmus, A.J. Reed starting

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:32:05 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (ear) is batting sixth and playing left field against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Saturday, July 16. In addition, 1B A.J. Reed is batting eighth and serving as the designated hitter. C/DH Evan Gattis is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus is making his first appearance since July 6, but he is just 2-for-17 at the plate this month and is 4-for-22 (.182) in his career against Iwakuma, so he is not a recommended option this afternoon. Reed is 5-for-20 with two homers and three RBI in July and is worth considering as a value play in DFS due to his power potential.

Astros | A.J. Reed, Colby Rasmus sitting

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:27:52 -0700

Houston Astros 1B A.J. Reed and OF Colby Rasmus are not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Against lefties, Reed and Rasmus are likely to see limited playing time. Both are struggling, too. Reed is just 5-for-35 to start his career, and Rasmus owns a .608 OPS with just 18 runs, four home runs, and 22 RBI over his past 50 games. Both have power upside, but their inconsistency should keep them on your bench outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Astros | Three Astros not in the lineup

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:24:19 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, 1B A.J. Reed and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Oaland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Sunday, July 10. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting eighth. 1B 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 is hitting .280 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent option in deeper mixed leagues. Worth and Marisnick are both hitting under .200 this season and are not great options.

Astros | Colby Rasmus remains sidelined Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:25:39 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (ear) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Saturday, July 9. INF/OF Marwin Gonzalez will bat leadoff and play left field. In addition, C/DH Evan Gattis will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter, C Jason Castro will start behind the plate and bat eighth and OF Jake Marisnick will play right field and hit ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is a useful player to have in AL-only seasonal leagues due to his positional versatility but he is not a great option in DFS today. Gattis is just 1-for-18 during the month of July and should also be avoided, while Castro and Marisnick are not recommended options in any fantasy format.

Astros | Colby Rasmus may play Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 05:54:48 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (ear) was not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8, because of an ear infection, but manager A.J. Hinch said he hopes Rasmus will be able to play Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should take a look at the team's lineup Saturday to see if Rasmus is able to play. He has only one hit in his last 11 at-bats and may not be a great starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues even if he does play.

Astros | Colby Rasmus out vs. Oakland

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:22:58 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Following a hot start to the season, Rasmus has struggled since Sunday, May 1, with a .237/.292/.333 slash line and just four home runs through 52 games. He's nothing more than a fringe starter in deep mixed leagues at this point. Marisnick boasts a power-speed combo, but he's been a fantasy disaster this season (.497 OPS) and can't be started with confidence in any format Friday.

Astros | Colby Rasmus, A.J. Reed sit against southpaw

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 14:25:32 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus and 1B A.J. Reed are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Thursday, July 7. OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is hitting eighth, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is at first base and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Against the tough lefty Hill, Rasmus and Reed are both being rested. Marisnick has some speed and is perhaps more useful in real life than fantasy for his defense. He's a low-end outfield pick in DFS. Gonzalez, on the other hand, is much more attractive as a value pick hitting high in the order.
