Pitcher: $7,500 Joe Ross- This is a pretty risky play, but the potential for Ross to have a huge game is too strong to pass up on. Ross is set to face the pitiful Padres in an excellent matchup for him. He has had a tumultuous start to the year, but will look to straighten things out against San Diego. Another solid option here is Patrick Corbin who draws a matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Catcher: $3,100 Brian McCann- His price is down a bit since he recently returned from an injury so now is the perfect time to start him. McCann, who does most of his damage against righties, will face a subpar one in Alec Asher. Given the paucity of options at the catcher position, starting McCann is a smart move given his home run potential.

First Base: $3,600 Logan Morrison- The Tampa Bay Rays are a possible stack candidate as they face Kyle Gibson and his 8.62 ERA. Morrison has been dominating right handed pitchers this year meaning he should be able to come out on top in the matchup with Gibson. Morrison has a relatively high floor, but the home run potential is the reason you want him in your lineup.

Second Base: $2,800 Rougned Odor- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Odor, but when the matchup is right, playing Odor tends to pay off in a big way. He will face the inexperienced Joe Biagini in a matchup where Odor should prevail.

Third Base: $3,300 Kyle Seager- The consistency has been there for Seager this year and that should continue against Rick Porcello. Porcello has a far from dominant pitch arsenal, meaning Seager should be able to do some damage.

Shortstop: $3,700 Trea Turner- Turner was in the midst of a slump, but it looks like he has broken out of it. He has fared much better against right handed pitchers, making it a good thing that he will face one in Jhoulys Chacin. Chacin has gotten lit up on multiple occasions this year, making both Turner and his teammates solid picks.

Outfield: $4,000 Corey Dickerson- As I said in an aforementioned paragraph, the Tampa Bay Rays will face Kyle Gibson in an excellent matchup. That is good news for the person who has been the Rays best hitter. Dickerson has enjoyed a great start to what is looking like a breakout campaign, and should maintain his high performance against the Twins. Dickerson has a chance to be the highest scoring hitter on the slate.

Outfield: $3,900 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi will face the inexperienced Christian Bergman in what will be a dream matchup for Benintendi. He has obliterated righties this year meaning he should be in for a big game. Benintendi always has a high floor thanks to his contact, but he also has a high ceiling due to his power.

Outfield: $3,100 Scott Schebler- Schebler is always a risky play, but he could be a strong contrarian play. Not many people will feature him in their lineup due to the risk that he possesses. Most of his value rests in his ability to hit home runs so if he is able to hit one out today, he will end up being an excellent value pick.
