Latest Update Rollins swipes two bags in loss to Angels Thu Aug, 14, 08:00 AM
Is defensively consistent and has great range at shortstop with a plus arm. A switch-hitter with surprising pop in his bat, he plays the game with great instincts and hustle. Runs very well. Is a good leader in the clubhouse.
Flaws: : Doesn't always display consistency at the dish and isn't quite as strong as a left-handed batter. Can come off as a bit too brash at times when he leads. Injuries are a bit of a concern moving forward.
Despite hitting a mere .239 on the season, Rollins has been able to make the most of what will likely be his final season with the Phillies, totaling 15 home runs, 50 RBI and 24 steals through 460 at-bats. As long as you can absorb his low batting average with a solid surrounding cast, he remains a must-own player in all but the shallowest of league formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
This doesn't really mean anything as a team would still have to make a major trade to acquire Rollins.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Like many of his teammates, Rollins was on the trading table heading into Thursday's deadline, but his current employer was unable to move him. He is now sitting on a .245 average with 15 home runs, 49 RBI and 21 stolen bases on the season, which makes him one of the better shortstops to own in 2014 at the age of 35. Even if he is moved to a contender during the month of August, Rollins' fantasy value should not take too much of a hit, considering he will likely block any trade that will result in a bench role.

Rollins was getting a day off Wednesday but with the Mets up 4-1 in the seventh, manager Ryne Sandberg was looking to spark a little offense and used his veteran shortstop as a pinch hitter. The move paid off as Rollins helped chase Mets starter Zack Wheeler with a solo shot to move the Phillies to within two. Unfortunately the move was immediately negated when the Phillies plated five in the bottom half of the inning. Rollins looks like he's going to stay put at the trade deadline, so continue to value you him just as you have all year long.Analyst: Howard Bender
