8/13 DFS Hitting Catcher 

Gary Sanchez, NYY vs. BAL 

DK ($4,300)   FD ($4,000) 

A lefty (John Means) against Sanchez…..sign me up! The slugging catcher is posting a .360 wOBA, .291 ISO and .860 OPS against left-handers for his career.  

8/13 DFS Hitting First Baseman 

Paul Goldschmidt, STL vs. KC

DK ($4,400)   FD ($4,100) 

Goldschmidt just might be the streakiest hitter in the Majors. And we catch him on a tear with hits in three consecutive games, including multiple hits in two of them, with a homer and four each of RBI and runs. Glenn Sparkman, the opposing starting pitcher, has proved to be a below-average MLB pitcher.

8/13 DFS Hitting Second Baseman 

Rougned Odor, TEX at TOR 

DK ($4,100)   FD ($3,300) 

Odor had eight homers and 15 RBI over his previous 15 games. That home run potential is what we are chasing here and he came through for us last night. Do not be scared of the left on left matchup, as the Blue Jays starter Thomas Pannone, will likely have a short outing.

8/13 DFS Hitting Third Baseman 

Gio Urshela, NYY vs BAL

DK ($5,000)   FD ($4,400) 

Yankees. Get as many Yankees as you can tonight. Though Gio disappointed a bit out of the 3-hole last night, you have to love Aaron Boone’s confidence in him to bat him there. And maybe disappointed is too strong of a word, as he recorded three hits and scored twice.

8/13 DFS Hitting Shortstop 

Gleyber Torres, NYY vs. BAL

DK ($4,400)   FD ($3,600) 

I am unashamedly stealing from John Sterling here. You know when I as a Red Sox fan do that, then I must really like the Yankees tonight. Anyway, as the calendar approaches, Gleyber Day and the first weekend of September, you can count on Torres. Sort of like how you can count on a good Gleyber to be there for you. I am sorry, I apologize. I really do. USE THE YANKEE BATS TONIGHT!

8/13 DFS Hitting Outfielders 

Aaron Judge, NYY vs. BAL 

DK ($4,400)   FD ($4,000) 

The price is just too low going up against a struggling lefty.

Nomar Mazara

DK ($4,200)   FD ($3,500) 

Another lefty on lefty matchup to not be scared of tonight in Toronto. This guy is starting to hit the ball hard and the Jays will have to use their bullpen a bunch tonight.

Charlie Blackmon

DK ($5,600)   FD ($4,600) 

This is my spend-up outfielder for tonight. He disappointed last night with only five DK fantasy points, what are the chances he does that again tonight?

Stacks to use Tonight

  1. Yankees: They get the Orioles. you know what to do.
  2. Rockies/Diamondbacks: This game is at Coors. The weather is warm. The ball will carry great. I like the Yankees stack better simply because the two starting pitchers in this game (Gallen and Gray) are both pretty good (though this is Gallen’s 1st Coors experience).
  3. Rangers: This choice will make you different than the crowd. We have seen that the Blue Jays starting pitcher, Thomas Pannone, is a lefty that can be hit hard.
