This lineup is only a first reaction to the players on a slate. For an updated lineup with more in-depth analysis and research, purchase a subscription below. Also, our premium fantasy football content is now available.
Pitcher: $8,100 Jose Berrios- Berrios has pitched well in what has been a breakout campaign. He should find more success tonight against a Detroit Tigers team that has struggled this year. Berrios 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: $3,000 Brian McCann- McCann will face Doug Fister in a matchup that he should be able to take advantage of. Noclaso 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: $2,400 Danny Valencia- Valencia does most of his damage against left handed pitchers; making it a good thing that he is set to face one in Tyler Skaggs. Skaggs has struggled at times this year, meaning the Mariners will have the opportunity to put up a good amount of runs on him. Because of the aforementioned reason, you will want some exposure to the Mariners: something that Valencia gives you. He comes with some risk, but not enough to deter you from starting him.
Second Base: $2,300 Rougned Odor- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Odor, but when he faces a righty, playing Odor tends to pay off in a big way. He will face the right handed Raul Alcantara who has had a tumultuous season so far.
Third Base: $3,000 Jedd Gyorko- Albeit that he is a righty himself, Gyorko performs much better against right handed pitchers. He has enjoyed a good deal of success this year, and that should continue against Chase Anderson. Gyorko carries some risk, but his massive upside makes up for nearly all of that risk.
Shortstop: $4,100 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 Chad Bettis. He has a fairly high floor as well as a very high ceiling.
Outfield: $3,100 Shin-Soo Choo- Choo should make the most of his matchup with Raul Alcantara. He hasn’t experienced the greatest season, but it looks like he is making a turn in the right direction.
Outfield: $4,200 Nelson Cruz- Cruz enjoyed a good deal of success so far this year and should be able to find some more against the inexperienced Tyler Skaggs. I don’t usually like to sacrifice most of my budget on a single hitter, but Cruz looks like he is worth it. He has a very high chance at being the days best player thanks to his immense power.
Outfield: $4,600 Mike Trout- Thanks to his great start to the season, there is no doubt in anyones mind who the best baseball player on the planet is. Trout continues to rake and will face Marco Gonzales in a mouth-watering matchup. At this point Trout is close to a lock for fantasy points anytime he struts onto the diamond.
