Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds is out of the lineup Thursday, July 28, with 2B Daniel Descalso hitting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Double-D has carved a nice niche with Colorado this season, but he is hitting .340 at home and .286 on the road. He's on the road, and he's facing Jacob deGrom. He doesn't present much upside in DFS today.

Colorado Rockies 2B Daniel Descalso is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park and is batting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Monday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Believe it or not, Descalso has been hot this year with a .326/.427/.892 slash line, two home runs and 19 RBI in 44 games. However, his offensive upside is limited, and he has very little power. Combine that with a low lineup placement and he's a long shot to return any real DFS value, even in a good matchup in a hitter's park tonight.

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn will start in left field and is batting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins Sunday, July 24. OF Daniel Descalso is not in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Raburn has gone hitless in his last seven games and is hitting only .138 in July. Owners in most leagues should be able to avoid Raburn until he produces at the plate again.

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at third base and is hitting eighth, while 2B Daniel Descalso is at first base and batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.
Fantasy Tip: Arenado and Reynolds are likely just seeing normal days off. Adames has no business being in any fantasy lineup with a .200/.304/.290 slash line in 100 at-bats. Descalso, on the other hand, is having a fine season in a utility role with a .346 average, two homers and 19 RBI. The average is likely to come down, though, and he doesn't have much power that plays in daily formats.

Colorado Rockies OF Daniel Descalso is starting in left field and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday, July 20. OF Ryan Raburn is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Descalso and Raburn have been platooning in left field, but Decalso has been the much better fantasy contributor with a .338/.435/.481 slash line through 92 plate appearances this season. In cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, he's a viable option to plug in your lineups when he's starting. Gerardo Parra's return will next to quash any legitimate fantasy value, though.

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, 1B Mark Reynolds, OF Ryan Raburn and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, July 17. INF Daniel Descalso will play first base and bat fifth, INF Cristhian Adames will start at shortstop and bat sixth, OF Brandon Barnes will hit seventh and play left field and C Tony Walters will start behind the plate and bat eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Of the four replacements in Sunday's lineup, Descalso has been the most productive at the plate this season, batting .333 with two home runs and 18 RBI through 72 at-bats. Adams, Barnes and Wolters should be viewed as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in DFS.

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is in the lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz on Saturday, July 16, batting sixth and playing left field in favor of INF/OF Daniel Descalso.
Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz is coming off a career-high 10 strikeout performance and may be the best fantasy play of the two, although he is far from a recommended fantasy start after the Rockies scored 11 runs Friday. Raburn might be getting the nod today after last night's pinch-hit grand slam in the ninth inning, but he has struggled for most of the season and generally hit southpaws much better than right-handers throughout his career.
