Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is considering several options to fill the vacant leadoff spot, including OF Carlos Gonzalez. OFs Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are also considered top candidates for the top spot in the order. 2B DJ LeMahieu, 2B Josh Rutledge, OF Brandon Barnes and OF Charlie Culberson are also others who could earn leadoff opportunities. Weiss said Friday, Dec. 6, that he is not ruling out other options.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez moving to the leadoff spot would mean a dip in his RBI numbers, but also an increase in his runs scored, and perhaps stolen base totals. Either way, he will be a stud fantasy option again in 2014.

Colorado Rockies OFs Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are expected to see more at-bats following the trade of OF Dexter Fowler to the Houston Astros. Both are also candidates to fill the vacant leadoff spot.

Colorado Rockies OF Dexter Fowler (knee) will undergo an MRI on his ailing left knee.
Fantasy Tip: Luckily, Carlos Gonzalez (finger) could be back within the next few days if Fowler must miss an extensive period. We'll let you know more as we find out. Charlie Blackmon remains the best interim play out of the group of part-timers that also includes Corey Dickerson and Charlie Culberson.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (finger) will be put on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right middle finger Wednesday, Aug. 7. In a corresponding move, SP Jeff Francis will be recalled from the minors. Gonzalez had been dealing with the finger injury since July 7. The DL stint will be retroactive to Aug. 5. Francis will pitch out of the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Corey Dickerson and Charlie Culberson will split duties in left field with Cargo on the sidelines. Culberson will likely be the fourth outfielder, with Dickerson getting the first crack at the majority of at-bats if you're searching for depth in cavernous mixed formats.
