Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2019 Fantasy Baseball Rest of Season Notes
Nolan Arenado photo 4. Nolan Arenado 3B
While Arenado hasn't been quite as dominant as seasons in the past, he is back in the top two among fantasy third basemen once again. His reliability is off the charts and fantasy owners might be in store for an even better second half.

It is a challenge to imagine thinking Story would outperform his absurd breakout 2018 season, but here we are in mid-July with it looking more likely than not. It goes without saying that if he keeps it up, we'll be talking about Story in the first round next Spring.

Blackmon took a bit of a step back last year after finishing as the top overall fantasy asset in 2017. It seemed as though he was going to continue his downward trend at the start of the season but Blackmon has kicked it into gear and ended up being a top fantasy outfielder in the first-half.

Daniel Murphy photo 106. Daniel Murphy 1B,2B
Unfortunately, Murphy is playing like a shell of his former self. There is even less power than before and his batting average has dropped south of .290. While that is still helpful and possible to increase, fantasy owners are right to be disappointed.

Marquez has been downright dreadful at home this year but is once again solid on the road. You can continue to use him in half his starts while we wait out that top 20 potential and see if it returns.

David Dahl photo 144. David Dahl LF,CF,RF
Dahl has been every bit as good as advertised and more with a 110 run, 100 RBI pace to go along with a batting average north of .300. Fantasy owners should expect those numbers to drop a bit, however, as he has an outrageous BABIP so don't hesitate to explore the trade market.

Ian Desmond photo 192. Ian Desmond 1B,LF
Although he isn't starting every game for the Rockeis, Desmond does play enough in Coors to warrant a roster spot on fantasy teams. Gone are the days where he will steal 20 bags, but he should be solid at worst in the other four standard categories.

Wade Davis photo 208. Wade Davis RP
Davis has had ups and downs in his career but it has never been as rough as this year's 6 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. Assuming this continues, he may soon be replaced by Scott Oberg as the closer.

Jon Gray photo 212. Jon Gray SP
Gray may very well be an ace if he pitched in a different home park, but unfortunately, he does pitch half his games in Coors and as a result, is really only useful in half his starts. Even that that, he is still worth owning.

Ryan McMahon photo 238. Ryan McMahon 1B,2B,3B
McMahon has loads of upside seeing that he plays in Coors, has power and some speed. Now, it hasn't shown yet, and the playing time hasn't been consistent, but he is a classic post-hype sleeper to have a huge second half for fantasy owners.

Scott Oberg photo 317. Scott Oberg RP
The Rockies may turn away from the struggling Wade Davis and turn to this season's version of Adam Ottavino, Oberg, who has been extraordinary. He carries a sub 2 ERA and sub 1 WHIP with 50 Ks at the break.

Yonder Alonso photo 320. Yonder Alonso 1B
Alonso wasn't especially impressive last year with a .250 batting average and just 23 homers, but he is just one year removed from posting an .866 OPS with Oakland and Seattle so don't discount a big bounce-back campaign.

Garrett Hampson photo 349. Garrett Hampson 2B,SS
More than likely, Hampson won't get his job back as the Rockies' primary second baseman. Even with injury, he may be third on the depth chart. With that said, if for whatever reason he does find his way into at-bats, he'll be worth monitoring as a potential pickup.

Raimel Tapia photo 354. Raimel Tapia CF
Tapia will never be a source of much power or speed, but as long as he continues to play in Coors, his batting average will suffice if you are desperate for a warm body in your fantasy outfield.

Brendan Rodgers photo 458. Brendan Rodgers SS
Rodgers hasn't done anything this season at the big league level and although he is mashing in the minors, the Rockies sent him to the IL with shoulder impingement. If he does make a return, he'll be a hot waiver commodity, but you shouldn't count on it.
