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 | Trevor Story sitting vs. Red Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:22:17 -0700

Colorado Roackies SS Trevor Story is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. INF Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Story is 0-for-8 with six strikeouts through his past two games, so sitting down against a knuckleball pitcher might be a nice chance for him to regroup. The rookie has been a fantasy star to start the season with 27 runs, 12 home runs, 31 RBI and a .272/.327/.578 slash line, and the peaks have been higher than the lows of the valleys thus far. Adames is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in daily contests Wednesday.

Rockies | Trevor Story, Mark Reynolds out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:47:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio Sunday, May 22. INF Cristhian Adames will play shortstop and bat second, while INF Daniel Descalso will bat seventh and play first base. In addition, OF Carlos Gonzalez is back in the lineup, batting cleanup and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Adames is batting .300 (6-for-20) over the past month after beginning the season with just one hit in his first 18-bats, while Descalso is 3-for-6 with two RBI this year. Use them in daily fantasy lineups only if you're desperate for salary cap relief.

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 | 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 | DJ LeMahieu nursing groin injury

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:07:31 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu (groin) tweaked his groin during the game against the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 15, and he is sitting out against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, April 18, in hopes the injury does not become chronic. OF Gerardo Parra is leading off, and INF Cristhian Adames is playing second base and batting seventh against Reds SP Dan Straily Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on LeMahieu. He is a serviceable fantasy contributor at the keystone who chips in across all categories, and calling Coors Field home also helps. Parra receives a slight uptick in value setting the table for Colorado, especially in the stolen base column, whereas Adames is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:21:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is receiving the day off against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, April 16. INF Cristhian Adames will lead off and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies are facing Jake Arrieta this afternoon, so Adames is not a recommended play in daily fantasy leagues. LeMahieu should be able to return to the lineup Sunday, April 17.

Rockies | Jose Reyes out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 10:35:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Saturday, Oct. 3. INF Cristhian Adames will bat leadoff and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Adames ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Jose Reyes out against Dodgers

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:26:58 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and batting second against Los Angeles Dodgers Mike Bolsinger Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Adames ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) only has two extra-base hits and a .366 slugging percentage through 20 big league games this season, so his FantasyScore upside is limited. Make sure to avoid Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday.
