 Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron swung a hot bat to start the year but came back down to earth on Sunday. In the series finale against the Dodgers, Cron went hitless with three strikeouts over four at-bats. He is now 3-for-13 with three hits, four RBI, and four runs over four games.

Notes 
 Cron fits the Rockies' narrative perfectly, as he's a veteran hitter on a short-term deal who will block a younger player from playing. Nevertheless, Cron offers plenty of fantasy goodness if he does indeed win the first base job for Colorado as expected. He missed almost all of last year with a knee injury, but he had a 15% barrel rate and a .544 expected slugging percentage in 2019. He's practically free in drafts and could easily hit 30 home runs with a plus average. Draft him late everywhere you can.
