Rockies | Wilin Rosario serving as DH

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:45:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, June 29. 1B Ben Paulsen is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Paulsen ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are both much less attractive on FantasyScore away from Coors Field. Rosario is hitting only .220 (13-for-59) with two home runs and five RBI, while Paulsen only has two of his five home runs on the road. It doesn't help that they're playing at pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum tonight, either.

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:28:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is not starting Saturday, June 27, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Wilin Rosario ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will get the start at first base and has been swinging the bat well of late. He's a good, cheap option at the position on FantasyScore today.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen starting at first base

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:28:49 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B/OF Ben Paulsen will play first base and bat against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Friday, June 26. 1B Wilin Rosario is getting the night off.

Fantasy Tip: After getting off to a hot start in May, Paulsen ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is only batting .234 in June with two home runs and seven RBIs. Unless you need cap relief in FantasyScore, look elsewhere for a starting option at first base.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out again vs. Arizona

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:33:50 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (hand) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. 1B Ben Paulsen is starting in left field and batting fifth, and OF Brandon Barnes is starting in right field and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all formats Wednesday. His injury comes at an unfortunate time, too, as he was sporting a .900 OPS with six home runs and 14 RBI through 19 games in June. Paulsen ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) are upside value plays at FantasyScore whenever they play at home in hitter-friendly Coors Field, especially Paulsen hitting in the five-hole Wednesday.

Rockies | Wilin Rosario playing first base

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 10:36:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies C/1B Wilin Rosario is starting at first base and batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Saturday, June 20. 1B Ben Paulsen is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has a rather favorable matchup this afternoon. He is 3-for-9 against Lohse in his career and is batting .350 at home this season, so FantasyScore owners who want to use cap space at other positions might want to consider him.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 09:02:12 -0700

Rockies | Ben Paulsen in at first base

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 14:35:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is starting at first base and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Monday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has handled the bat well in his short time in the big leagues with a career .317/.359/.583 slash line over 51 games and 128 plate appearances. At his price and with the game being played at Coors Field, Paulsen projects as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Monday.
