From -- thru  --


Rockies | Mark Reynolds, Nick Hundley sitting out

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:17:05 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Sunday, May 1. 1B Ben Paulsen will start at first base and is batting seventh, while C Tony Wolters will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen has been a bit inconsistent at the plate recently but is still hitting .326 this season and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Wolters has struggled in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Rockies | Colorado sitting two starters

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:38:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ben Paulsen and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Sunday, April 24. OF Gerardo Parra will start in left field, while OF Brandon Barnes will start in center field and is batting first. C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes is hitting .286 so far this season with three of his six hits being extra base hits. Barnes could be a cheap sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Garneau has gone 2-for-7 at the plate this season but is not a great fantasy option.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn draws into lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:44:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Friday, April 22. 1B Ben Paulsen will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: At home at hitter-friendly Coors Field against a soft-tossing lefty is the perfect time to roll with Raburn as a cheap flyer in daily formats. Last year against southpaws Raburn hit .325/.415/.589 with all eight of his long balls. Sneaky good value here.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen doubles RBI total

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 21:04:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk with two strikeouts Monday, April 18, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen entered the game with just three RBIs, but he is hitting .308 on the season and he has been a tremendous corner infielder option in NL-only fantasy play and some deeper mixed formats.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen will not start

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 11:04:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, April 17. OF Gerardo Parra will start in left field and is batting fifth, while OF Brandon Barnes will start in center field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes has gone 4-for-12 so far this season but does not have any RBI at this point. Owners probably will be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen sitting out Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:28:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B/OF Ben Paulsen is out of the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Saturday, April 16. INF Mark Reynolds is playing first base and batting fifth, while OF Ryan Raburn is playing left field and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen is off to a decent start in 2016, batting .318 with three RBI through his first nine games, but he will give way to the free-swinging Reynolds, who is homeless through his first seven contests. Raburn is 5-for-12 with a pair of home runs but does not have a favorable matchup versus Arrieta.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Nick Hundley out

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:35:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. 1B Ben Paulsen draws a start in left field and is hitting seventh with OF Gerardo Parra moving to center field. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu is moved to the leadoff spot. C Tony Wolters is behind the plate and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Most everyone from the Rockies lineup today is desirable in daily formats facing Cain at Coors Field. LeMahieu gains significant value in the leadoff spot, and Paulsen and Wolters are worth looks as cheap sleeper picks against the declining right-hander.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen starting at 1B vs. Giants

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:35:51 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is in the lineup starting at first base and batting seventh Wednesday, April 13, against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen made a bit of noise last year when he slugged 11 homers and 49 RBI in 116 games, but he's been shafted up to this point in favor of Mark Reynolds. As a result, it's hard to justify picking him up in any leagues, as this will only be his fourth start of the year. Meanwhile, he'll be a dart throw in daily games for his potential value this evening.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen starting Tuesday

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 14:31:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Tuesday, April 5. 1B Mark Reynolds will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen and Reynolds will switch off at first base throughout the season, and Paulsen could have the strong side of the platoon hitting from the left side. He hit .282 with all 11 of his long balls coming against right-handers last year, so Paulsen is attractive in daily games against certain pitchers and in NL-only formats for his pop. You may want to consider buying low on him in daily games tonight.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen looking good

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 12:42:30 -0800

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is receiving good reviews in camp this year after struggling with concerning weight loss last season. He showed up to camp a muscular 216 pounds and expects to play at 212 after finishing 2015 weighing 195 pounds. Manager Walt Weiss is likely to play the matchups at first base with Paulsen and 1B Mark Reynolds. Paulsen is under a specific eating plan to keep him from avoiding another drastic weight loss.

Fantasy Tip: There's modest power production here in one of baseball's best hitting environments, but a lack of full-time playing time limits his fantasy value to mostly NL-only leagues. However, he's a nice undervalued daily target against right-handers at home, too.
