Monday brings on new momentum, which does not care what you did the week before. The purpose of this article is to guide you to winning your Daily Fantasy Baseball tournaments, because let’s be honest: We play to win. If you are not playing to win, your bank account will let you know that is the case.
Sandy Alcantara is not ready to face a veteran stacked Cubs team, in Chicago. The problem with Alcantara is he loses focus very easily. Once he starts walking batters, once he gives up big hits, the wheels will fall off quickly. There are many ways you can stack the Cubs offense. The most popular way will consist of Rizzo-Baez-Bryant-Contreras. I will admit that is probably the best way to go. Those guys are all playing the best baseball they have played all season.
John Means well, you get what I did there. However, he will not do well. The Red Sox offense is one of the hottest in baseball. Xander Bogaerts hit a grand slam this weekend, J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts are starting to rack it up. Featuring those three in your stack should result in great results, Steven Pearce is a good X-Factor to send one into the seats.
Jakob Junis is not ready to take on the hot-hitting Astros, in Houston. Junis cannot afford to make a mistake anywhere in that lineup, and the runs could flood through. Stacking Bregman would be the most obvious choice, taking a rare 2B option like Jose Altuve has to come in mind as well. Question is, do you take Springer? I would go with the Brantley-Correa combo to finish off the RBI potential.
Miles Mikolas is off to a rough start, and that Phillies offense is too talented. Jean Segura is really table setting for this team, the middle of that lineup with Bryce Harper-Rhy Hoskins-J.T. Realmuto has to do the damage, Look for Segura to be the guy who sets that group up.
Martin Perez is pitching out of his mind. Look for the Blue Jays to bring him back to reality. Expect the heart of the Jays order, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Randal Grichuk, to be the main guys to build around. Justin Smoak is a bit risky for the high price, but sign me up for Teoscar Hernandez in this one.
