9/6 MLB DFS Winner: Kyle Schwarber
As Jason had him in our Premium Gold Cheatsheet as a value outfielder, Kyle Schwarber had a terrific day at the plate. Going up against the Milwaukee Brewers, Schwarber went 2-for-3 with a grand slam and added a walk as well.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Kyle Schwarber is having another incredible season at the plate. He has an .857 OPS on the year, which is the highest in a season for him. As the Cubs battle for the division title, expect Schwarber to continue smacking the ball all over the field.
9/6 MLB DFS Winner: Bo Bichette
Above is a list of all shortstops from our Premium Gold Hitters Projection model and Bo Bichette was projected to have a good game and did just that. Against the Tampa Bay Rays, Bichette went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Bichette is doing well at the plate in his last 30 games, batting .313 with nine HRs and 15 RBI in that span. He has such a violent swing, so be aware that one rip can be the reason he is out for a week or so. Expect him to continue to wield a hot bat and build on his rookie campaign
9/6 MLB DFS Winner: Max Fried
Here is a screenshot from our Premium Gold Pitchers Projection model from last night’s slate. Max Fried was one of the top priced guys and arguably was a value pick still. Against the Washington Nationals, he went seven innings of shutout ball while allowing one hit with nine strikeouts.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Max Fried is now up to 16 wins on the season and has a 2.90 ERA in his last seven starts. He is going to be a N.L. Cy Young award finalist at year’s end. Expect Fried to continue his dominance for the final month of the regular season.
9/6 MLB DFS Winner: Miami Marlins Offense
The Miami Marlins had an offensive explosion against the Pittsburgh Pirates last night as they put up 10 runs on 16 hits. Neil Walker went 2-for-4 with three RBI, which led all players on the team.
Outlook for the rest of the season: The Miami Marlins are rarely going to be here as a team. They do not have a lineup with big-name players and much production with just 522 runs, the lowest in the National League. Don’t expect another outburst like this for the remainder of the season.
