Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday. Murphy cracked an RBI single in the first inning before banging a solo homer in the fourth. It's been slow going for the veteran in his first season in Colorado, but Murphy has been warming up in recent weeks, batting .360 (18-for-50) since May 21. Overall, the 34-year-old is hitting .250/.316/.442 with four homers and 30 RBI in 36 games played.

Chicago Cubs Fantasy Spin

Willson Contreras is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth for the Cubs against the Rockies on Wednesday. This is a bit of a surprise, as Yu Darvish is on the mound, and Contreras and Darvish haven't worked together since April 20. It's been an excellent year for the backstop, as he is slashing .291/.398/.564 with 13 homers and 33 RBI over 54 games.
