Colorado Rockies

NL West


Victor Vodnik notched his second save of the season, tossing 1.2 innings with two strikeouts while allowing two hits and a walk in the Rockies' 8-5 victory over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: This outing was a slight deviation from his season-long struggles, as evidenced by his elevated 4.11 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. While the save might appear promising, Vodnik's inconsistent performances and high WHIP suggest that fantasy managers should remain cautious. Vodnik remains a risky play in most fantasy formats, suitable only for those desperate for saves in deep leagues.

German Marquez allowed four walks and five hits over four innings pitched in a win over the Mets Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Marquez allowed three earned runs and tallied three punch outs in his first return off the injured list. Considering this was his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Marquez was going to be held to a pitch count. He will likely be stretched out in his next start.

Brenton Doyle went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Rockies' 8-5 victory over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Doyle's performance was highlighted by his solo home run, contributing significantly to the Rockies' win. Despite striking out twice, Doyle's ability to add power with his 15th homer of the season is a positive takeaway for fantasy managers. His season-long stats, including a .276 batting average and 20 stolen bases, make him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues, particularly for those in need of a blend of speed and power. His consistent playing time and production in multiple categories should keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.

Michael Toglia had a standout performance, going 3-for-4 with three home runs and three RBIs in the Rockies' 8-5 victory over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: This explosive display of power significantly boosts his season totals, which, despite a low batting average of .189 and a high strikeout rate, now include 16 home runs and 34 RBIs over 51 games. Toglia's ability to deliver game-changing hits is evident, but his overall fantasy value remains hampered by his inconsistency at the plate and poor contact rates. Owners should consider him a high-risk, high-reward option in fantasy leagues, particularly useful in formats that heavily reward power numbers.

Ezequiel Tovar had a standout performance in the Rockies' 8-5 victory over the Mets, going 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, two runs scored, and four RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This explosive display not only highlights his power potential but also significantly contributes to his season totals, bringing him to 14 homers and 42 RBI through 95 games. Tovar's ability to drive in runs and score himself, evidenced by his performance in this game, should keep him as a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, especially in leagues that reward extra-base hits and RBI. While his strikeout rate remains high, his impactful hits can offset those losses in formats that do not heavily penalize strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Goodman will start in right field and bat ninth against the Mets. He is hitting .179, with seven home runs, and 21 RBI this season.


Sean Bouchard is in the starting lineup for the Rockies Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Bouchard will start in left field and bat eighth against the Mets. He is hitting .200, with one home run, and eight RBI this season.

Ryan Feltner took the loss Saturday, allowing three earned runs on two hits and five walks while striking out seven over 3 2/3 innings against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: This performance encapsulates Feltner's season struggles, with control issues once again at the forefront given the five walks. His season ERA now sits at an inflated 5.36, with a WHIP of 1.45, reflecting ongoing challenges in limiting baserunners. Despite a decent strikeout rate of 8.0 K/9, his high walk rate continues to undermine his fantasy value. Feltner's high BABIP of .337 suggests some bad luck, but the consistent lack of command makes him a risky play in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues. His 1-9 record is a testament to his struggles and the limited win potential pitching for a struggling Rockies squad.

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the Rockies' 7-3 loss to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the Rockies' struggles, Blackmon managed to contribute by driving in and scoring a run via his sixth homer of the season. This performance slightly uplifts his modest .256 batting average and brings his RBI total to 32. Given his current stats, including a .322 wOBA and a .289 BABIP, Blackmon remains a viable fantasy option primarily in deeper leagues or as a fill-in based on matchup considerations. His power numbers are not eye-popping, but his ability to chip in across several categories can still provide value.

Brendan Rodgers went 1-for-3 with a home run, an RBI, and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-6 defeat to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers's solo shot contributed significantly to the Rockies' offensive effort, though it wasn't enough to secure the win. This performance brings his season home run tally to six, and while his power numbers are modest, his ability to contribute across multiple categories can be valuable in deeper fantasy leagues. His batting average remains solid at .269, and with a BABIP of .329, it suggests a decent level of consistency. Fantasy managers should consider Rodgers a viable option at second base, particularly in formats that reward on-base percentage, given his .305 wOBA this season.

Ryan McMahon went 1-for-4 in the Rockies' narrow 7-6 loss to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Despite managing to secure a hit, McMahon failed to make a significant impact, contributing no RBIs, runs, or extra-base hits. This performance is somewhat reflective of a season where McMahon has maintained a decent .272 batting average but has struggled with a high strikeout rate of .281. His ability to contribute in multiple categories has been inconsistent, evidenced by his moderate home run and RBI totals. Fantasy managers should view McMahon as a potential utility player, but his high strikeout rate and sporadic production might limit his appeal in shallower leagues or those that penalize heavily for strikeouts.

Elias Diaz back in lineup Friday

Elias Diaz is back in the Rockies lineup on Friday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz is back behind the plate and hitting cleanup for Colorado. He is hitting just .238 so far in July.


Austin Gomber endured another rough outing, allowing four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings in Thursday's 8-1 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: This performance continues a concerning trend for Gomber, whose season ERA now balloons to 4.61, compounded by a WHIP of 1.30. His strikeout rate remains low at 6.1 K/9, indicating a lack of dominance on the mound, which is further underscored by a high FIP of 4.93. Fantasy managers should be wary of relying on Gomber in their rotations, as his inability to limit runs and lackluster strikeout totals offer little upside. His current form suggests limited potential for high-scoring fantasy performances, making him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues.
