  • Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 and crunched two solo home runs to lead his team over the Rays 5-1 on Wednesday.
    Advice: The second baseman twice went yard against starter Nathan Eovaldi in the contest. His power bat has come alive of late although he is still well behind the pace he set the last two seasons. Everything else is right where his fantasy owners were hoping for on draft day. He leads the majors with a .347 batting average with seven home runs, 39 RBI and 49 runs scored. He has stolen 11 bases in 13 attempts.
  • Jose Altuve is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays.
    Advice: It looks to be a routine day of rest for the star second baseman, who went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, and two runs scored in Monday's series opener versus Tampa Bay. Alex Bregman is at second base and Yuli Gurriel is playing third base on Tuesday, with Tyler White drawing a start at first base.
  • Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a double, a steal and two runs scored Monday against the Rays.
    Advice: Altuve is batting .424 with three homers, 22 runs scored, 15 RBI and seven steals over his last 23 games. He was a fantasy disappointment for two months, but he's justifying his lofty price tag lately.
