First Base – Peter Alonso, New York Mets – $5,300 DraftKings, $3,900 FanDuel
Alonso has burst on the scene in a big way to start his Major League career and he kept it going with a home run last night against the Tigers. Today, he gets another terrible lefty (Ryan Carpenter) and I have a strong feeling he is going to tee off again.
Second Base – Whit Merrifield, Kansas City Royals – $4,800 DraftKings, $3,900 FanDuel
I love playing Whit against a lefty, a bad one to say the least in J.A. Happ. There’s always the stolen base upside with him every single time he gets on base.
Third Base – Jose Ramirez, Cleveland Indians – $3,700 DraftKings, $3,000 FanDuel
This is simply too cheap for Jose Ramirez. I know he has been slumping this year, but he’s coming for that breakout and I want to be on the good end of it. Get him while he’s cheap.
I love playing Jorge Polanco against a lefty, as it always seems to work out for me. The Twins are on a complete tear right now and I wanna ride the hot hand of the guy hitting in the two hole for this steaming offense vs. Manny Banuelos.
Outfield – Nicholas Castellanos, Detroit Tigers – $3,900 DraftKings, $3,500 FanDuel
Same story with Jorge Polanco, I LOVE playing Castellanos against a lefty. What makes it even better is that Jason Vargas is a gas can. I think Castellanos hits a dinger in this one.
Salary Saver Stacks of the day;
1.) Detroit Tigers
The Tigers get Jason Vargas, who is coming off the IL. Although he had pitched decent before landing on the IL, he still a gas can and I don’t believe in him being even remotely good.
2.) New York Mets
Ryan Carpenter is completely dreadful as a pitcher and I think the Mets hang close to double digits on him and the bullpen in this one.
Spend Up Stacks;
1.) Minnesota Twins
I will ride this train till the wheels fall off. The Twins are far and away my favorite stack of the day. They are smoking hot right now and I see nothing getting in their way against Manny Banuelos.
2.) New York Yankees
Jakob Junis is terrible, let’s be honest. I love all the power the Yankees can provide in this one and I can see them getting to Junis early after getting the night off with the PPD.
Won the FanDuel, 11K MLB Pickoff Single Entry Tournament in May of 2019. Started playing MLB DFS a couple years ago and have found success as mainly a cash game player. After playing season-long fantasy for five years I decided to give DFS a shot and have never looked back. Grinding all year around with MLB, NBA and NFL.
