Pitcher: $10,100 Chris Archer- I don’t normally like to spend this much on a pitcher, but with a bunch of cheap value guys on offense, I can afford Archer. He has an excellent matchup on paper and should be able to turn in an excellent outing on the mound. A lot of his value rests in his ability to generate swings and misses, so if he is able to get at least ten strikeouts he should hit value.
Catcher: $2,700 Matt Wieters- This price seems way too low for the type of production he can offer. Wieters will have the opportunity to have a big game as he draws a matchup with Tommy Milone. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $3,100 Hanley Ramirez- Albeit the fact that Ramirez is a shell of his former self, he should still be able to turn in a solid game against Wade Miley and the Orioles. He fares much better against lefties, meaning a big game could be in the works against a subpar one in Miley.
Second Base: $3,300 Scooter Gennett- Gennett erupted for a monster four home run game earlier this year, showing his abundance of upside. While you shouldn’t expect the same performance today, he should still be able to turn in a strong game. He obliterates righties and will face one in Jameson Taillon.
Third Base: $3,200 Anthony Rendon- As I said earlier, the Nationals will stand to benefit in their matchup with Tommy Milone. Rendon fares much better against , meaning a big game could be in the works. With the way the Nationals offense has been clicking recently, you will want to have as much exposure to them as possible.
Shortstop: $3,300 Didi Gregorius- Gregorius has enjoyed a breakout season this year, and he should find more success against Andrew Albers. There aren’t that many strong options at the shortstop position, which only makes starting him an easier decision. Putting him in my lineup tends to pay off in big ways and hopefully that will happen tonight.
Outfield: $2,700 Matt Adams- Him making the move to Atlanta has benefited him greatly. Adams absolutely obliterates righties, making it a good thing that he is set to face one in Jonathan Gray. This is a great value pick as Adams offers an abundance of potential for a great price.
Outfield: $3,000 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.
Outfield: $3,600 Brett Gardner- Gardner is mainly here to offset some of the riskier picks, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a strong play himself. He went on a torrid hot streak earlier this year, and he should be able to find that same success against Andrew Albers in a righty/lefty matchup.
