Rockies | Nolan Arenado, Mark Reynolds out

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:00:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at third base and is hitting eighth, while 2B Daniel Descalso is at first base and batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado and Reynolds are likely just seeing normal days off. Adames has no business being in any fantasy lineup with a .200/.304/.290 slash line in 100 at-bats. Descalso, on the other hand, is having a fine season in a utility role with a .346 average, two homers and 19 RBI. The average is likely to come down, though, and he doesn't have much power that plays in daily formats.

Rockies | Trevor Story not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:55:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, 1B Mark Reynolds, OF Ryan Raburn and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, July 17. INF Daniel Descalso will play first base and bat fifth, INF Cristhian Adames will start at shortstop and bat sixth, OF Brandon Barnes will hit seventh and play left field and C Tony Walters will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Of the four replacements in Sunday's lineup, Descalso has been the most productive at the plate this season, batting .333 with two home runs and 18 RBI through 72 at-bats. Adams, Barnes and Wolters should be viewed as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in DFS.

Rockies | Three Colorado starters not playing

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 12:33:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger), OF Ryan Raburn and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Sunday, July 3. 2B Daniel Descalso will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Cristhian Adames will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while OF Brandon Barnes will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso is hitting .385 with four RBI over the last seven days and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Barnes is also an option for owners because he has played well over the last week. Adames can be avoided in most leagues.

Rockies | Trevor Story out Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 16:39:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with SS Cristhian Adames hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Adames is hitting just .217 and isn't worthy of DFS consideration against Scott Kazmir.

Rockies | Trevor Story, DJ LeMahieu resting

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:52:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 2B DJ LeMahieu are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and is hitting second, while 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at second base and batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Adames and Descalso don't have much offensive upside, but Descalso has been hot of late and is hitting .385 on the season in limited opportunities. Both are nothing more than deep sleepers in DFS formats, though. Story and LeMahieu both dealt with nagging injuries earlier this week and could still be bothered by them. Check back for updates on their status moving forward.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:22:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) and C Nick Hundley are all out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and hitting second, 2B Daniel Descalso is at second and batting sixth and C Tony Wolters is doing the catching and hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Story and LeMahieu have been dinged up lately. Story returned to the lineup yesterday and LeMahieu should return any day. Adames, Descalso and Wolters don't bring much to the table offensively and should all be considered low-end DFS options this afternoon against a strong pitcher.

Rockies | Trevor Story, DJ LeMahieu sitting

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:57:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story (finger) and 2B DJ LeMahieu (knee) are both out of the starting lineup Monday, June 27. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and hitting second, while 2B Daniel Descalso starts at second base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Both Story and LeMahieu are dinged up right now, but both of their injuries aren't serious and shouldn't keep them out much longer. Get them both back into your lineups whenever they return. Adames and Descalso are both desperation daily picks this evening, with Adames being slightly more attractive because of his placement near the top of the order.

Rockies | Trevor Story sitting vs. Arizona

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:33:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. INF Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Story has obviously slowed down but has still posted a respectable 12 runs, four home runs, 12 RBI, two stolen bases and a .273/.341/.494 slash line in June. He remains a high-end option at the 6 going forward. Adames is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Friday, albeit a flier playing in Coors Field.

Rockies | Trevor Story, Mark Reynolds resting

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:11:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth, while 2B Daniel Descalso is at first base and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Both Adames and Descalso are light-hitting middle infielders who don't attract much fantasy attention at all in any format. They are both desperation deep sleepers in DFS tonight against Maeda while hitting near the bottom of the batting order.

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.
