Pitcher: $10,100 Carlos Carrasco- Carrasco should be able to limit damage in a strong matchup with the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox have struggled to put runs on the board at times this year, and Carrasco will look to take advantage of that. He has a relatively high floor for tonights game, as well as a high ceiling thanks to his immense strikeout potential.
Catcher: $2,900 Brian McCann- McCann will face Mike Leake in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Leake is far from an ace-level talent, meaning the Houston Astros should be able to put a good amount of runs on the board. Given the dearth of options at the catcher position, McCann is a strong play given his excellent upside.
First Base: $3,500 Ryan Zimmerman- Zimmerman has since slowed down after his other worldly month of April. Nevertheless, he has a propensity to turn in big games when he faces subpar pitchers. Because of their excellent matchup with Dillon Peters, the Washington Nationals are a potential stack candidate.
Second Base: $2,100 Chase Utley- If Utley is in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting lineup, he will be a quality DFS play. His price point is very low, meaning he could end up being a great value play. The veteran Utley fares much better versus right handed pitchers, making it a good thing that he will face one in Taijuan Walker.
Third Base: $3,200 Kyle Seager- Seager hasn’t had the best season, but that doesn’t mean he can’t put together a solid game. He fares much better against righties, making it a good thing that he will face Lance McCullers. Seager doesn’t have that high of a floor, but he does have a fairly lofty ceiling.
Shortstop: $3,400 Didi Gregorius- Gregorius has enjoyed a breakout season this year, and his success should continue against Kevin Gausman. There aren’t that many strong options at the shortstop position, which only makes starting him an easier decision.
Outfield: $3,000 Lonnie Chisenhall- Chisenhall has had a surprisingly strong start to the year, and his success should carry over for tonight. Given their excellent matchup with Reynaldo Lopez, the Cleveland Indians are a very strong stack candidate. Chisenhall has a relatively high floor, but he has excellent home run potential as well.
Outfield: $2,800 Andrew McCutchen- Albeit the fact that Andrew McCutchen isn’t the player he once was, he should still be able to carve together a solid day at the plate. He is an enticing play thanks to his matchup with Jose Quintana.
Outfield: $4,000 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi draws a strong matchup with Joe Biagini: a pitcher that can be roughed up. He does most of his damage against righties, meaning he will at least have an opportunity to go yard against the right handed Gray. Benintendi doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a good deal of upside thanks to his home run potential.
