Pitcher: $9,600 Zack Godley- Godley has pitched well in what has been a very strong campaign. He should find more success tonight against a San Diego Padres team that has struggled mightily this year. Godley has a tendency to strike batters out, which means he has plenty of big game potential. He is a relatively safe pick with a lofty ceiling as well.
Catcher: $2,700 Brian McCann- McCann will face Lucas Giolito in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Giolito is very inexperienced, 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: $3,100 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 Luiz Gohara, the Washington Nationals are a potential stack candidate.
Second Base: $3,200 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 Jack Flaherty.
Third Base: $3,800 Anthony Rendon- As I said earlier, the Nationals will stand to benefit in their matchup with Luiz Gohara. Rendon fares much better against lefties, which means 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: $3,100 Corey Seager- Seager has had a very strong season, and that should continue tonight. He absolutely obliterates righties, making it a good thing that he will face one in Aaron Nola. He has a fairly high floor as well as a very high ceiling.
Outfield: $2,800 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: $4,100 Andrew Benintendi- Benintendi draws a strong matchup with Kevin Gausman: 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 Gausman. Benintendi doesn’t have that much of a floor, but he does have a good deal of upside thanks to his home run potential.
Outfield: $2,400 Adam Duvall- Duvall should be able to make the most of his excellent matchup and have a big game. 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.
