Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) could be away from the team for several days, so take note. Make sure he's not in your daily lineups for tonight. Brandon Drury will receive another start for the D-backs tonight, with Jake Lamb sliding over to first base. Ignore Drury everywhere.

Fantasy Tip: Godley will be as cheap as they come for his start against the Chicago Cubs. We recommend ignoring him on FantasyScore. Stacking a couple Cubs hitters in your lineup that night is a smart strategy, too.

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second base for the second game of the team's doubleheader against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Tuesday, Sept. 1. Gosselin is batting seventh in the order.
Fantasy Tip: While Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) typically would be one to avoid on FantasyScore, he does have deep sleeper appeal after hitting a home run in Game 1 and while playing at Coors Field against one of the worst starters in baseball this year, who is also coming off the DL.

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Daniel Hudson allowed a run on two hits while striking out two batters to earn his third save of the season during Arizona's 6-4 win over the Colorado Rockies in Game 1 of their doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Hudson continues to receive the odd save opportunity, so owners chasing the category can lean on him in the hope he'll grab a few more save chances down the stretch. Just note, he owns an underwhelming 3.99 ERA for the year. Brad Ziegler owners shouldn't fret him losing his closing role just yet, but he has allowed seven earned runs through two appearances over the past two days. Don't be shocked to see Ziegler pitch in Game 2 of the doubleheader, if needed, and for Hudson to see a few more save opportunities down the stretch, especially if Ziegler continues to struggle.

Fantasy Tip: Goldschmidt ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is expensive as your FantasyScore first baseman, but he's totally worth it at Coors Field for the second game of a doubleheader against a pitcher (Kyle Kendrick) coming off the DL and sporting an ERA over 6.00 on the year.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Yohan Flande in Game 1 of a doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1. 1B Brandon Drury is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: The first game of this doubleheader won't be available on FantasyScore, so you can ignore Drury against Colorado.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Yohan Flande in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1. OF Yasmany Tomas is starting in right field and hitting sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) won't be available in the first game, but he'd be a solid option on FantasyScore if he starts in the nightcap against hittable Kyle Kendrick coming off a stint on the DL.

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo is not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday, Sept. 1. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting and hitting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Yohan Flande.
Fantasy Tip: The first game of this doubleheader won't be included on FantasyScore, so you can ignore Saltalamacchia ($2,400, 4.8% of cap).

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Monday, Aug. 31. 2B Chris Owings will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Gosselin ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) recently returned from the disabled list and should not be a starting option at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Reed was a closer at one point in Arizona but he will not close here unless Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard are injured. Even then it might not happen, so don't put Reed in your fantasy lineup.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:32:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owings ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is just 1-for-21 over the past seven days and should be avoided in FantasyScore for now.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:13:11 -0700
Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas will bat seventh and play right field against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Ender Inciarte, who played right field Saturday, Aug. 29, will play center field Sunday, with OF A.J. Pollock getting the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Remove Pollock ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 1-for-12 over the past week and is only hitting .233 during the month of August, so FantasyScore owners should avoid using him Sunday. On the other hand, Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 10-for-25 over the past week and deserves consideration for daily lineups.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) had a bullpen session canceled and a planned simulated game appearance next week pushed back after experiencing tightness in his hamstring. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since Monday, Aug. 17, with a strained left hamstring.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, Hellickson's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) season may be in jeopardy, or at least limited to just a start or two at the end of the year. In the majority of leagues, he isn't worth stashing given the uncertainty of when he'll be able to return.
