Description: Longtime Rockies first baseman Todd Helton will retire at the end of the season. SOURCE: Associated Press
Insight: Helton, who turned 40 last month, cited injuries and constant traveling as his reasons for calling it quits. "If I could play 81 games at home next year, I could do it," Helton told the Denver Post on Saturday. Helton had a phenomenal run during the early 2000s but most of his best seasons were overshadowed by division rival Barry Bonds, winner of four straight National League MVP awards between 2001 and 2004. Helton's last game at home will come against the Red Sox on September 25th.
 
7/25/2013 1:44:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: Helton was once a fantasy stud, but those days are long gone (.259, 7 HR, 32 RBI). Michael Cuddyer will take over first base and it's his eighth start there. If your league requires 10 starts to be eligible, Cuddyer is closing in on that number.
 
6/1/2013 10:14:00 AM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is hitless in nine at-bats versus Dodgers hurler Zack Greinke.
Insight: Helton was once a fantasy stud, but those days are long gone. Avoid this matchup.
 
5/25/2013 2:33:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against San Francisco.
Insight: Helton was once a fantasy stud, but those days are long gone. Jordan Pacheco (.298, 1 HR, 13 RBI) should start in Helton's place.
 
5/19/2013 3:52:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton won't be on the diamond Sunday against San Francisco.
Insight: With the lefthander Barry Zito throwing for the Giants, manager Walt Weiss thought Sunday would be a good time to give Helton a rest. Jordan Pacheco (.313, 1 HR, 11 RBI) is starting in Helton's place.
 
4/25/2013 6:04:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton will require a stint on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: The veteran is dealing with inflammation in his left forearm. Michael Cuddyer is likely to start at first base in Helton's absence with Eric Young Jr. occupying Cuddyer's post in right field.
 
4/24/2013 10:29:00 AM
Description: Colorado first baseman Todd Helton is a career .667 hitter (12-for-18) against Braves veteran right-hander Tim Hudson.
Insight: Helton hasn't played since Friday due to a forearm injury, but this would be a great matchup for him to return. No longer a fantasy superstar, owners have to pick their spots with Helton and this could be one of them. If he's in the Rockies lineup, he should be in your fantasy lineup.
 
4/3/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: Colorado first baseman Todd Helton won't be in the lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.
Insight: Jordan Pacheco is getting the start at first. It's possible that Helton, who is simply getting a day of rest, could appear later on as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement.
 
3/16/2013 10:14:00 AM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton has only gotten nine at-bats this spring, but is expected to be ready for Opening Day. He took Johnny Cueto deep on Friday.
Insight: This is expected to be his 17th and final year. His fantasy value is very low these days coming off an injury-filled 240 at-bat season that yielded a .238 batting average with just seven HR and 37 RBI.
 
2/6/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton has started out the season the wrong way - with an arrest for DUI.
Insight: This is expected to be his 17th and final year. His fantasy value is very low these days coming off an injury-filled 240 at-bat season that yielded a .238 batting average with just 7 HR and 37 RBI.
 
1/10/2013 7:23:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton (hip) plans to play in 2013. SOURCE: Troy Renck, Denver Post
Insight: Helton wanted to see how his body responded after hip surgery. He hit just .238 in 69 games last season and shouldn't be counted on for fantasy production in 2013. Even if he does bounce back, his 2011 numbers (.302, 14 HRs) are his absolute ceiling. Helton hasn't hit 20 homers since 2005 or driven in 100 runs since 2003.
 
11/12/2012 2:15:00 PM
Description: Colorado first baseman Todd Helton will see how he responds to hip surgery before he makes a final decision on whether to play in 2013.
Insight: The 39-year-old Helton (career-low .238 batting average in 2012) doesn't have much fantasy appeal at this late stage in his career. The Rockies could end up using Michael Cuddyer at first base if they don't sign a free agent in the offseason although Cuddyer was also disappointing last season with just a .260 batting average, 16 HR and 58 RBI in 101 games.
 
11/3/2012 8:51:00 PM
Description: Colorado first baseman Todd Helton had surgery to fix a torn meniscus on Friday.
Insight: He should be ready for the start of spring training. The 39-year-old Helton (career-low .238 batting average in 2012) doesn't have much fantasy appeal at this late stage in his career.
 
8/6/2012 7:04:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip, according to the Denver Post. He's done for the year.
Insight: Tyler Colvin will presumably play everyday with both Helton and Michael Cuddyer out of the lineup.
 
8/1/2012 7:39:00 PM
Description: First baseman Todd Helton will be unavailable for the Rockies Wednesday night. He's sick with the flu.
Insight: Tyler Colvin (.273, 13 HRs, 41 RBIs) is filling in for Helton at first base tonight.
 
7/29/2012 2:30:00 PM
Description: First baseman Todd Helton is not featured in Colorado's starting lineup on Sunday.
Insight: Michael Cuddyer (.259, 15 HRs, 55 RBIs) will get the nod at first in the series finale versus Cincinnati.
 
7/27/2012 9:03:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton was activated from the disabled list Friday against Cincinnati. Before Friday, Helton hadn't appeared in a game since July 8 while battling hip inflammation.
Insight: Helton's return could mean less playing time for Tyler Colvin (.278, 13 HRs, 41 RBIs), who is 0-for-12 in his last three appearances.
 
7/13/2012 7:12:00 PM
Description: Colorado first baseman Todd Helton has been moved to the 15-day DL while he deals with right hip inflammation.
Insight: Expect Michael Cuddyer (.264, 12 HRs, 50 RBIs) to fill in for Helton at first with Tyler Colvin (.305, 13 HRs, 40 RBIs) occupying Cuddyer's usual spot in the outfield. Helton is only hitting .235 this year with seven homers and 34 runs batted in.
 
7/5/2012 8:06:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton won't play Thursday night against St. Louis.
Insight: Perhaps Helton (.239, 7 HRs, 34 RBIs) came back from his hip injury a little too soon. He's 0-7 since returning to the Rockies' lineup on Tuesday. Michael Cuddyer (.262, 12 HRs, 49 RBIs) is getting the start at first in Helton's place.
 
7/1/2012 2:43:00 PM
Description: Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is out for Sunday's series finale against San Diego.
Insight: It's just a routine day off for the 16-year veteran. It's been a tough season for Helton (.246, 7 HRs, 34 RBIs), though he is on a six-game hitting streak at the moment.
