Rockies | Several COL regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:25:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Saturday, May 28. OF Ryan Raburn will bat sixth and play left field, INF Cristhian Adames will play second base and bat seventh and C Dustin Garneau will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is 10-for-27 (.370) with three home runs and 10 RBI at home this year but is just 1-for-6 in his career versus Bumgarner, making him a risky play in DFS this afternoon. Adames (2-for-3) and Garneau (1-for-3) have enjoyed modest success against the veteran lefty but shouldn't be viewed as much more than potential sources of salary cap relief.

Rockies | Tony Wolters not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:19:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Tony Wolters is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dustin Garneau is batting eighth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Wolters is out mainly due to the left vs. left matchup, although Wolters and Garneau are in a platoon situation and neither one catches a majority of games. Garneau doesn't have much fantasy value, so you should look elsewhere for a catcher.

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:35:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Tony Wolters is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Sunday, May 15. C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Garneau has only one hit in seven at-bats over the last seven days and probably can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

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 | Charlie Blackmon returns to lineup

Sat, 07 May 2016 12:32:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is back in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Saturday, May 7, leading off and playing center field. In addition, C Tony Wolters is starting behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon is 3-for-12 with one RBI in his career versus Cueto and is batting .310 in 29 at-bats over the last two weeks, so he merits consideration for daily lineups. Wolters is 7-for-44 this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:05:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Nick Hundley are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Raburn is hitting sixth, 2B Cristhian Adames is hitting ninth and C Tony Wolters hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has an impressive .361-4-8 line in 36 at-bats. He's certainly worth the low-end flyer against Cesar Vargas. Adames is hitting .148 and isn't worth the stream in Petco Park. Wolters hasn't hit much since his first couple of games and isn't worth the start.

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 | Trevor Story with day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 10:01:38 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with SS Cristhian Adames hitting second. C Tony Wolters is also hitting eighth with C Nick Hundley sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Since Hundley returned, he has faced two lefties, while Wolters has been in against two righties. Wolters opened eyes with three quick steals, but he has done little since with a .156-0-3 line on the year. It's worth watching in the coming days, but pass on Wolters. Adames is 4-for-24 (.167) on the year and isn't a real solid option against Juan Nicasio.

Rockies | Trevor Story, Nick Hundley resting

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:18:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and hitting second, while C Tony Wolters is doing the catching and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Cole got off to a tough start on the year, but he rebounded nicely and is a daunting matchup for both Adames and Wolters tonight. Both players shouldn't attract much attention in daily setups, even at home in hitter-friendly Coors Field.

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.
