Pitcher: $10,100 Jacob DeGrom- DeGrom draws a strong matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies, which makes starting him a no-brainer seeing as how he is easily the best pitching option on the night. DeGrom has as much potential as any other pitcher thanks to his tendency to accrue strikeouts. His price tag is a bit steep, but I’m willing to pay the price for the type of production he offers.
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 Odrisamer Despaigne. At a position with a paucity of quality options, Wieters stands out as an excellent pick.
First Base: $3,500 Logan Morrison- Morrison is worth consideration anytime he is facing a righty thanks to his immense power. His matchup with Bartolo Colon is one that he should be able to take advantage of. He does carry some risk due to his propensity to whiff, but his home run potential gives him plenty of upside.
Second Base: $3,500 Jose Ramirez- Ramirez should be able to reap the rewards in a tremendous matchup with David Holmberg. He has some home run potential, but since he is a contact hitter there is always a nice floor.
Third Base: $3,000 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez has struggled mightily this year, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $3,200 Didi Gregorius- Gregorius has enjoyed a breakout season this year, and his success should continue against Jeremy Hellickson. There aren’t that many strong options at the shortstop position, which only makes starting him an easier decision.
Outfield: $2,900 Corey Dickerson- Dickerson is a stalwart in these articles anytime he is facing a right handed pitcher. This is looking like a breakout year for him, and his excellent play should continue against Bartolo Colon. He is a very safe play, but he also has a good deal of potential.
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: $3,100 Adam Duvall- Yet another player on the Cincinnati Reds, Duvall should be able to have a big game in an excellent matchup. There is a perpetual risk that comes with Duvall thanks to his tendency to strike out, but not enough to deter you from starting him.
