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.

Colorado Rockies 1B Matt McBride is starting at first base and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) rarely plays against lefties, so McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws in to face the potentially daunting Liriano ($7,500, 15.0% of cap). FantasyScore players will be able to stack their lineups around McBride, but he is nothing more than a dice roll. After all, he doesn't have an extra base hit or RBI yet this season.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is out of the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to a sore right knee. OF Matt McBride is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) just hurt the knee the day before, so the Rockies aren't taking any chances and are keeping him out. He should be stashed away on your bench in regular leagues as well. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth a low-cost flier. He has a .208 mark in August but his bat has warmed up in the past week (.357).

Colorado Rockies OF Matt McBride will bat eighth and play left field against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Sunday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless in seven at-bats this season, although he singled in his only career at-bat against Kennedy. That's not enough of a track record for you to rely on him as a viable option for your FantasyScore lineups.

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 13. 1B Matt McBride is starting at first base and hitting fifth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.
Fantasy Tip: McBride is a FantasyScore afterthought and should be avoided everywhere, especially against the young pitching phenom Syndergaard, who has been much better at Citi Field this year.
