Sunday Baseball reminds me of Opening Day. From 1 pm ET, until the end of the night, the beautiful game of baseball is on. Sit back, relax, and enjoy my favorites at each position.
1B: JESUS AGUILAR ($2900 ON FANDUEL) vs. JASON VARGAS
Have to love the matchup, Aguilar can take a meatball Jason Vargas fastball to the grandstands whenever he chooses. Aguilar hit three HRs in the first two days to start the week, but nothing since. Look for the failed David Ortiz clone to show he still has value.
2B: DEE GORDON ($2700) @ CODY ANDERSON
With Mallex Smith no longer in town, Dee Gordon is going to become a household DFS name when he steals three bases. Gordon is quietly having one of his best offensive seasons in his career, already with two HRs to go with a league leading 10 stolen bases.
3B: JOSE RAMIREZ ($3600) vs. ERIK SWANSON
Jose Ramirez has to be licking his chops facing the young pitcher who is struggling to find confidence. Ramirez has had a bad season for his standards early on, but a matchup against a young unproven pitcher can change everything.
SS: FRANCISCO LINDOR ($3600) vs. ERIK SWANSON
Lindor is heating up big time, throwing up back-to-back 30-plus Point FanDuel performances. Lindor definitely has the tools to be the top shortstop in Fantasy Baseball, and if it was not for a preseason injury he would have been drafted like one in season long formats. This is a dream matchup, and Lindor is too hot.
OF: ANDREW BENINTENDI ($4200) @DYLAN COVEY
Benintendi is finding his swing, with a HR earlier in the weekend and a tasty matchup against Covey. You do not have to ask me twice, Benintendi can easily table set and score runs every time he is on base.
OF: RYAN BRAUN ($2900) vs. JASON VARGAS
Ryan Braun has made a living hitting lefties. Jason Vargas throws meatballs, straight up meatballs, you find at Subway, that you know deep down inside are probably not that great for you or anyone else, but a player swings anyway because he knows the taste is a HR. Braun will wait for that mistake pitch and hit into another galaxy.
OF: J.D. MARTINEZ ($4100) @ DYLAN COVEY
J.D. is starting to find his swing again with multi-hit game after multi-hit game. The Red Sox offense is a scoring machine and Martinez is the heart of the fire. Look for Martinez to finally launch HR number five.
OF: MOOKIE BETTS ($4200) @DYLAN COVEY
Mookie is hot, the Red Sox are hot, and the White Sox pitching definitely is not. Betts has the potential to get on base at a rapid rate, which will turn into a lot of runs.Betts is at a huge discount against such weak pitching, grab him while he has the momentum. Do not look back, rack up those runs and hits.
UTI: KEON BROXTON ($2100) @ ZACH DAVIES
A sleeper start for you right here, Broxton is going against his old team. Last week he did nothing in his spot start, this time he’ll back home. Broxton can easily get on base, and when he does, he will steal one. Broxton has the potential to be a fantasy baseball superstar.
STACKS OF THE DAY
Dylan Covey is not good enough to face a hot Red Sox lineup. Covey will be lucky to last two times through the lineup, so expect the Red Sox to dominate.
Cody Anderson does not scare me, he should not scare the Mariners either. Dee Gordon will table set for Mitch Haniger, Domingo Santana, and Edwin Encarnacion. The Mariners offense is built to score runs in this matchup, look for the top half to get it done.
