Insight: The confines of Coors Field have once again helped Blackmon put a stop to his slump. Eight of the nine games during his hot streak came at home. He went 4-for-45 (.089) with one RBI in 11 games from July 31 to Aug. 12, with eight of the 11 coming on the road.
 
Cold8/10/2014 8:10:00 PM

Insight: Blackmon had a .304 average and an .816 OPS on July 30, but he's down to .285 and .764. The 28-year-old has batted .332 with a .922 OPS at Coors Field this season, but just .232 with a .584 OPS on the road. The Rockies play at San Diego from Monday-Wednesday before coming home for nine straight games.
 
7/21/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon was not in the lineup Sunday due to an ankle injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Washington.
Insight: Blackmon rolled his ankle during Saturday's game. He was able to finish the 11-inning contest and his X-rays came back negative. Drew Stubbs would be his likely replacement.

Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the lineup Sunday due to an ankle injury.
Insight: Blackmon rolled his ankle during Saturday's game. He was able to finish the 11-inning contest and his X-rays came back negative, but he'll get the day off while Drew Stubbs starts.
 
Hot7/13/2014 12:27:00 AM
Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon posted a five-hit night and stole a base, but it wasn't enough to help the Rockies beat the Twins.
Insight: Blackmon started out hitting .352 with nine homers, 29 RBI, 34 runs, eight steals and a .998 OPS in his first 38 games, but he predictably tailed off. He appears to have found his stroke again, batting .316 this week. It doesn't hurt that Carlos Gonzalez is back in the lineup and batting second behind Blackmon.
 
7/9/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon has gone 4-for-8 with a double and two homers over the last two games.
Insight: Blackmon started out hitting .352 with nine homers, 29 RBI, 34 runs, eight steals and a .998 OPS in his first 38 games, but he predictably tailed off. He hit .239 with three homers in 50 games from May 13 to July 7. He still has excellent numbers on the year, a great home ballpark and a favorable lineup spot as Colorado's leadoff hitter.
 
7/1/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the lineup Tuesday.
Insight: It appears to be just a rest day for the Rockies leadoff hitter. Blackmon batted .316 with six doubles, one homer and three steals over his last 17 games of June after getting off to a 5-for-35 (.143) start during the month.

Insight: Blackmon is 5-for-7 against Monday's starter Hyun-Jin Ryu and coming off a six-hit weekend set against the Giants. Start him.
 
Hot6/15/2014 8:31:00 PM
Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon (3-for-5) put on a show Sunday against the Giants.

6/10/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the Colorado starting lineup for Tuesday.
Insight: Blackmon (.298, 10 HR, 40 RBI, 38 runs) has gone hitless in his past two games and could just be getting a routine day off. After batting .374 in April, he hit just .260 in May and .172 in eight June games.
 
5/31/2014 7:45:00 PM
Description: Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon bashed his tenth home run of the season Saturday against Cleveland.
Insight: Blackmon (.317, 10 HR, 37 RBI) drove in four of the six Colorado runs. He's on pace to eclipse the 100 RBI plateau for the first time in his career. Fantasy owners should be starting Blackmon on a nightly basis.
 
5/27/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Blackmon batting to .323 after a two-hit game on Monday, but the Phillies are throwing a tough left-hander out there and the Rockies will give Blackmon the night off. Drew Stubbs will start in center and he's just 2-for-14 against Hamels, so not a great option.
 
5/24/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Blackmon is still batting to .322 though he's cooled off and has just one hit over the past four games. The day off may help him.

5/5/2014 5:34:00 PM
Description: Rockies right fielder Charlie Blackmon won't start Monday versus Texas. SOURCE: Thomas Harding, MLB.com
Insight: Even fantasy studs like Blackmon need a night off once in a while. Blackmon, aided by a lethal .422 average at Coors Field, is second in the league in hitting (.359) and fifth in runs batted in (22). Drew Stubbs (.250, 1 HR, 4 RBI) is filling in at right field tonight.
 
Hot4/23/2014 7:51:00 PM
Description: Colorado right fielder Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBI, four runs scored and a steal Wednesday against the Giants.
Insight: Blackmon has hit four homers over his last three games and now has five on the year to go with his .410 average, 16 RBI, 19 runs, six steals and a 5/6 K/BB. The low-strikeout rate and Coors-Field factor should give the 27-year-old Blackmon staying power in fantasy leagues.
