Rockies | Ben Paulsen demoted to Class AAA

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:34:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen was optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque Friday, May 13. In a corresponding move, INF Daniel Descalso (hand) was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen heads to the minors with a .258/.300/.379 slash line, and he should be replaced in the majority of leagues, if not all. Descalso won't receive enough playing time to make a fantasy dent, but he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests when playing at Coors Field. With Paulsen's demotion, Mark Reynolds is locked in as the starting first baseman, and he is sporting a .337/.392/.489 slash line through 102 plate appearances this season. Reynolds is a worthy add in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez takes a seat

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:08:24 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting fifth. 1B Mark Reynolds is hitting cleanup with 1B Ben Paulsen out against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has a .389-3-6 split in 18 at-bats against lefties this season. He looks like a dynamite midrange flyer against Robbie Ray. Reynolds is hitting .333 overall and .387 against lefties. Give him a spin today as well.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen receives a start

Tue, 10 May 2016 14:16:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Tuesday, May 10. 1B Mark Reynolds will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen has been the odd-man out more often than not this year with Reynolds hitting well as the primary first baseman. That leaves Paulsen's value mainly in daily formats for matchups against right-handers while home at Coors Field. Look to Paulsen tonight as a low-priced value pick.

Rockies | Two regulars not playing for Colorado

Sun, 08 May 2016 11:30:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, May 8. 1B Ben Paulsen will start at first base and is batting seventh, while C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen is hitting .276 this season but has only two hits in his last nine games. He could be used in some fantasy leagues but there probably better options for some owners. Garneau was recently recalled from the minors and probably should be avoided by owners.

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.
