Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's loss against the Dodgers.
Blackmon pushed his hitting streak to 11 games, and he is hitting .375 (18-for-48) with six RBI and 10 runs scored during the impressive run. While he has taken a big step back from his giant 2017 campaign, but he is piecing together a nice hitting streak to show why he is a top-notch fantasy option through thick and thin. Jun 3 - 8:08 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored versus the Giants on Wednesday.

He led off the home half of the first inning with a single then rode home on a Nolan Arenado home run. He followed that up with an RBI single in the second frame. The veteran outfielder has taken a big step back from his monster 2017 season but is still a strong fantasy asset nonetheless. He has a .276/.368/.508 triple-slash with 12 homers, 26 RBI and 44 runs scored in 51 games. He's chipped in four steals to boot.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

The RBI came on a triple, the second three-bagger of the season for the star outfielder. Unfortunately, Blackmon will probably remember tonight for grounding out with the bases loaded and nobody out. He's still hitting a very strong .274/.375/.525 on the year with 12 homers and 24 RBI in his 47 games.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 and scored two runs in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He led off the game with an infield single and came around to score on a Nolan Arenado knock. He singled again in the fifth and was driven in by Trevor Story. Blackmon's batting average is depressed this year but everything else looks great. His batting averages the last two years were .324 and .331 but this year he owns a .269/.374/.538 line with 12 home runs, 23 RBI, 35 runs scored and four stolen bases in 41 games.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the Mets.

Blackmon is now up to 11 homers on the year, trailing only Bryce Harper (12) in the National League. He’s hit seven out of his 11 homers out of the leadoff spot, so he’s sitting on 20 RBI for the year. Still, fantasy owners can’t complain, as Blackmon is batting .292/.395/.632 through 28 games so far. He’s tearing the cover off the ball on the road, so it’s hard to poke any holes in what he’s doing.

Charlie Blackmon hit his ninth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Blackmon's solo jack in the sixth inning -- and what a jack it was, a no-doubter to right field off Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen -- was the only run the Rockies could muster on the evening. His nine homers are most in the National League, and he's third in the league with 22 runs scored. Hitting first, hitting second, hitting third -- it doesn't seem to matter to Blackmon. He just hits.
Apr 28 - 11:37 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Blackmon and Nolan Arenado went back-to-back against Cubs starter Jose Quintana in the fifth inning, giving Blackmon an NL-leading eight homers this year. His 15 RBI and 18 runs scored also rank among the best in the league, and he's slashing a cool .304/.392/.696 through 18 games. We all thought last year's output was the high water mark, but Blackmon appears to have other ideas.
Apr 22 - 7:33 PM

Charlie Blackmon hit his seventh home run of the season Monday in the Rockies' 6-2 defeat of the Pirates.

It was an eighth-inning solo shot off Pirates right-hander Tyler Glasnow, on a frigid night at Pittsburgh's PNC Park. Blackmon also plated a run on a groundout in the bottom of the first and singled to lead off the top of the sixth, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. He's been tremendous on the road so far in 2018 and is slashing .314/.397/.784 across 51 total at-bats.
Apr 16 - 9:45 PM

Rockies manager Bud Black said Monday that he will consider keeping DJ LeMahieu at leadoff and Charlie Blackmon in the heart of the order when Nolan Arenado is back from suspension.

Black floated the idea of batting Blackmon in the heart of the order before spring training but ultimately decided to keep him in the leadoff spot. However, the center fielder has been in the No. 3 spot while Arenado serves his suspension. The Rockies offense is struggling, so it might make sense to shake things up.

Charlie Blackmon hit a double and a homer in a win over the Nationals on Sunday.

The homer came off of Stephen Strasburg, and it gives him six on the season. While Blackmon is better -- by a considerable margin -- at home, he's certainly not an automatic out when away from Coors Field, or anything close to it. He's well worth DFS consideration even when the Rockies are playing on the road.
Apr 15 - 5:09 PM

Charlie Blackmon clubbed a two-run homer as the Rockies fell to the Nationals on Saturday afternoon.

Blackmon, returning after a four-game layoff due to tightness in his right quad, crushed a two-run bomb off of Max Scherzer in the first inning. That would wind up being the only hit they would tally against the star right-hander. Blackmon finished the day 1-for-4, striking out in his other three at-bats. He's hitting .279/.380/.674 with five homers and eight RBI on the season.
Apr 14 - 4:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon (quad) returned to the Rockies' starting lineup on Saturday.

Blackmon missed the team's last four games due to tightness in his right quadriceps. He returns to a difficult assignment against Nationals' ace Max Scherzer.
Apr 14 - 11:24 AM

Charlie Blackmon (quad) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

He's missed four straight games with tightness in his right quad, but the Rockies are confident Blackmon won't need a trip to the disabled list. They have Ian Desmond in center field and Ryan McMahon at first base Friday.
Apr 13 - 3:45 PM

Rockies manager Bud Black and head athletic trainer Keith Dugger both said Thursday that Charlie Blackmon (quad) is much improved and not expected to need a disabled list stint.

Blackmon missed a third straight game Thursday with tightness in his right quad, but it sounds like he has a good chance to return sometime over the weekend. Pat Valaika and Mike Tauchman have seen an uptick in playing time with Blackmon sidelined.
