Joe Musgrove is better on the road (3.29 ERA), but you have
to like a Braves stack against him when you consider his overall mark is 4.44
and he has allowed four or more earned runs in five of his past seven starts.
Freddie Freeman ($5400 on DraftKings) is hitting .313 with 12 homers and 29 RBI
vs. RHPs. Dansby Swanson (4700) has 10 homers and 31 RBI vs, righties. Nick
Markakis (3600) is at .287 with 30 runs scored vs. righties. Ronald Acuna Jr. (4900)
has nine HRs, 28 RBI and 29 runs scored vs. RHPs. Austin Riley rakes at home
and is worth the 5000. Brian McCann can save salary at 3500 along with Markakis
if he starts. Colin Moran (4600), Gregory Polanco (4500) and Corey Dickerson (3900)
can also build out a Pittsburgh stack against Kevin Gausman, whose last name is
aptly closer to “gas can” than any other Major Leaguer.
Tampa Bay will start an early assault on Tanner Anderson and
likely drive him from the game quickly. Oakland has a 4.33 bullpen ERA. Austin
Meadows is hitting .344 with six HRs, 20 RBI and four steals in home games.
Yandys Diaz is hitting .313 with six homers and 13 RBI at the Trop. Ji-Man Choi
is hitting .298 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored and Avisail Garcia is hitting
,296 with seven HRs and 16 RBI at home.
Taylor Clarke has a 4,67 road ERA, so load up on some Phillies.
Jean Segura is hitting .319 with 24 runs scored in home games. J.T. Realmuto is
at .299 with five homers and 19 RBI at Citizens Bank Park. Scott Kingery is at
.282 with eight RBI and seven runs scored at CBP. You should give Jay Bruce a
look as well.
The Rockies home stack is in play at home against Yu
Darvish, but the lefties will be costly. Charlie Blackmon is 5800, David Dahl
is 5300 and Daniel Murphy may not be worth it at 5000. Ryan McMahon (4200) and
Tony Wolters (3600) can help you save if they are in the lineup. Victor
Caratini (4200) and Carlos Gonzalez (3000) can help you save cash with a Cubs stack.
