Pitcher: $11,400 Robbie Ray- Ray has put together back-to-back dominant outings, and more of the same should be present. His price has escalated due to his success, but not enough to deter you from starting him. He is a relatively safe play with plenty of upside due to his tendency to accrue strikeouts.
Catcher: $2,700 Brian McCann- McCann will face James Shields 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: $2,600 Yonder Alonso- Alonso is primed for a big night seeing as how he draws an excellent matchup with Andrew Cashner. Cashner has struggled at times this year, and hopefully Alonso will be able to capitalize. At this price he is a bargain for the production that he brings.
Second Base: $2,500 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 Jake Thompson.
Third Base: $3,600 Kyle Seager- The consistency has been there for Seager this year and that should continue against Andrew Cashner. Cashner has a far from dominant pitch arsenal, meaning Seager should be able to do some damage.
Shortstop: $2,900 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 Jake Thompson. He has a fairly high floor as well as a very high ceiling.
Outfield: $3,000 Nomar Mazara- Mazara does nearly all of his damage against righties, making it a good thing that he will face one in Felix Hernandez. He doesn’t have that sturdy of a floor, but his ceiling is as high as any. Mazara has been on a hot streak recently, and he should be able to continue that trend.
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: $3,200 Jay Bruce- Bruce should be able to take advantage of his matchup with Ricky Noclaso. There is always risk that comes with Bruce due to his tendency to whiff, but not enough to stop you from starting him. He doesn’t have that high of a ceiling, but he has plenty of big game potential thanks to his power.
