Any player can have that special night, but here are my favorites at each position.
1B: Freddie Freeman ($4000 on FanDuel) vs. Adam Wainwright
Wainwright throws straight up meatballs wide a side of marinara more often than not when he is on the mound. Freeman can rip any pitch he wants.
2B: Dee Gordon ($2800) vs. Michael Pineda
Dee is no lock to start, but he did appear as a pinch runner. The matchup is not amazing, but the potential for a SB if he is playing is too good to pass up. His ownership will be as low as it can go.
3B: Vladimir Guerrero Jr ($3000) vs. Dylan Covey
Vladdy Daddy Jr. is starting to show that big time MLB potential. Look for Vlad to continue his streak against a very hittable pitcher in Covey.
SS: Jorge Polanco ($4300) @ Erik Swanson
Polanco is swinging a hot bat, hit another HR on Wednesday and the matchup looks great on paper. Swanson is not going to be able to avoid Polanco, time to rack up those fantasy points.
OF: Eddie Rosario ($4300) @ Erik Swanson
The Twins need Rosario to get back to his vintage levels, and this matchup looks good on paper. Not only do you have the lefty/righty split, you have a good matchup as well. Run with this potential.
OF: Max Kepler ($3200) @ Erik Swanson
The matchup is pretty, the potential for something special is there.
OF: Ronald Acuna Jr. ($4300) vs. Adam Wainwright
Wainwright has not thrown a pitch by a hitter since 2014. Acuna will be the table-setter for this offense.
Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day
These three guys will get plenty of opportunities to grab those hits. To win big we need eight, to win in general we only need six hits. Two hits apiece is more than doable for this group.
