8/28 MLB DFS Winner: Patrick Corbin
It’s not often a losing pitcher will appear in these articles but Corbin was solid. As Wes Anderson chose him on our Premium Gold Cheatsheet, Corbin was not the biggest starting pitcher on the slate. However, he went seven innings of two runs on four hits with nine strikeouts and did not allow a walk.
Outlook for the rest of the season: The biggest free agent pitcher from the offseason, Corbin has been incredible this year. Expect him to continue to give the Nationals at least five solid innings a game and rack up at least one strikeout an inning.
8/28 MLB DFS Winner: Yasiel Puig
As you can see from the cheatsheet, Wes chose another player that had a good game in Puig. Against the Tigers, he went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run, a RBI and a walk.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Yasiel Puig has been great since he joined the Cleveland Indians at the Trade Deadline about a month ago. He is slashing .298/ .372/ .476 in the 22 games in the American League. Look for him to provide some big moments for the Indians as they battle for the A.L. Central crown.
8/28 MLB DFS Winner: Brett Gardner
This screenshot is from the Hitter Projection Model, available for all premium members to access. This screenshot is the 76th through 100th highest projected output on the slate. Gardner was 99th overall (102nd in DraftKings Projection). Against the Seattle Mariners, Gardner went 1-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a walk.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Even as the longest-tenured Yankee on the roster, Gardner is contributing well with the absence of Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton. Now up to 18 HRs on the year, second most in his career, he is having a great season. He also has an .818 OPS, a career high thus far. Expect him to continue to swing a great bat until Aaron Hicks and/or Giancarlo Stanton makes it back.
8/28 MLB DFS Winner: Yordan Alvarez
Even in a 15-1 victory, Yordan Alvarez seemed to be the best player on the Houston Astros last night, going 3-for-5 with a double, a pair of homers and four RBI against Charlie Morton and the Tampa Bay Rays.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Call it what you will with the obscene amount of home runs hit this season, but Alvarez is hitting at an incredible rate. He has 21 HRs in just 219 at-bats or one every 10.4 at-bats. Put that across a full season and he will have around 50 hits over the outfield wall. He’s a huge power hitter that can thrive off expanded rosters.
