Tyler Colvin is loving life in Colorado as he continues to mash his way onto many fantasy rosters.
Analysis: Tyler Colvin is slugging .759 at home this year, so we might as well call him Carlos Gonzalez Jr. In fact, seven of Colvin’s eight home runs were hit at Coors Field. Even though he only slugs .384 away from home, his average away from Coors Field is a respectable .274.
Colvin isn’t going to walk much and he does strike out a ton but 30 RBI in 57 games and a .306 batting average is hard to come by on the wire. Keep in mind that Colvin has first base position eligibility in addition to his time in the outfield. He’s available in over ninety percent of leagues and in the deeper ones he is almost certainly a useful commodity. Colvin’s BABIP is inflated so his average will drop but he should continue to hit bomb after bomb at Coors Field along with CarGo and Dexter Fowler. Although Colvin is competing with numerous Colorado players for at-bats, he remains a better fantasy option than Tyler Moore and Seth Smith.
