Roberto Perez, Indians at Royals ($2,700 FD, $3,500 DK): I love using this backstop against lefties but the park downgrade scares me a bit tonight. So maybe the long-ball potential isn’t overly high but the Indians should be able to string together some hits and get a few rallies going tonight.
Daniel Vogelbach, Tigers at Mariners ($3,500 FD, $4,200 DK): You can’t go wrong with a player who has hit multiple HRs in a game twice in over a week at that price. Especially against the Tigers pitching staff and particularly against today’s starting pitcher, Drew VerHagen.
Edwin Encarncion, Yankees at Red Sox ($4,300 FD, $5,400 DK) and Luke Voit ($3,600 FD, $4,800 DK): Both bats from a loaded Yankees lineup are in play in Fenway Park against Rick Porcello. Will traveling to Boston after a night game in Minnesota slow down the Bombers bats? Probably not but we will see what happens tonight.
Gleyber Torres, Yankees at Red Sox ($3,700 FD, $4,700 DK): Torres has recovered from a slump. He has hit safely over his last three games with HRs in two of them. He is especially attractive if you want to use a Yankee stack and they blow up former Cy Young winner Rick Porcello.
Didi Gregorius, Yankees at Red Sox ($3,300 FD, $4,900 DK): Well I seem to be writing myself smack dab into using a Yankees stack tonight. Well who can blame me for doing that? Didi has recorded back-to-back games where he has accumulated eight hits, 3 runs scored, a homer, three doubles, a triple, 10 RBI and a walk. Wow, talk about a good DFS player the last two nights.
Logan Forsythe, Rangers at Athletics ($2,500 FD, $4,100 DK): An affordable bat with pop who always plays against lefties, Forsythe has gone deep in two of his last five games. He has a decent chance of making it three out of six against mediocre lefty Brett Anderson.
Let us go back to the Yankees here and red-hot Aaron Hicks ($3,800 FD, $5,000 DK). Like Didi, he has coming of consecutive great games with totals of four hits, two homers, four runs, four RBI and a walk. It is only a matter of time until Aaron Judge ($4,600 FD, $5,600 DK) joins in the long ball fun. Like the other Yankees mentioned, he certainly had a productive pair of games at Target Field combining for five hits, two doubles, two RBI and 3 runs scored.
My last outfielder will be a non-Yankee in Ramon Laureano ($3,100 FD, $4,900 DK). He is coming off a stretch where he reached double digits in DK fantasy points in 10 games on either side of the All-Star break. This had to be the quietest hot streak in all of MLB. I like using him as a late night one-off against a bad Rangers pitching staff led by starter Ariel Jurado.

As you can tell in the write-up for batters, the Yankees are the #1 stack against a pitcher they have dominated recently in Rick Porcello. That guy must have nightmares of the beating the Bronx Bombers put on him in the Little League field they played on in London. Tom Eshelman of the Orioles has yet to produce a quality start in three tries this season. So that puts the Angels in play as a stack. The Nationals, going against a tired Rockies bullpen that has pitched a whole bunch of innings over the last week or so, could be in play on the early or all-game slate.
