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 for purchase below.
Pitcher: $12,000 Corey Kluber- Kluber has had a dominant season so far, and his success should continue against the Chicago White Sox. He comes at a very steep price, but I believe he is worth every penny because of the game he could be in for. Kluber has plenty of strikeout potential and has an ability to go deep into ballgames. He has a relatively high floor as well as a lofty ceiling.
Catcher: $2,500 Jason Castro- While he isn’t always a solid play, he is when the matchup presents itself. Castro will face Buck Farmer in what will be an excellent matchup for the entire Twins lineup; making them a strong stack candidate. Given the paucity of options at the catcher position, Castro stands out as one with both stability and upside.
First Base: $2,700 Joey Gallo- There is a perpetual risk that comes with starting Gallo, but he is worth a look anytime he is facing a righty. He has as much upside as any other player because of his immense power, meaning a big game could be in the works for Gallo. However, there is an equally high chance that Gallo ends up putting a goose egg in the points column.
Second Base: $2,200 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 Daniel Gossett who has had a tumultuous season so far.
Third Base: $2,800 Mike Moustakas- Moustakas tends to fare much better against right handed pitchers and he is set to face one tonight in Taijuan Walker. Walker has been hit hard at times this year, meaning Moustakas should be able to carve together a strong game at the plate.
Shortstop: $3,500 Jean Segura- Segura has enjoyed plenty of success so far this season, and he should find more of that success against Ricky Noclaso. His ability to get on base makes him a very safe play. You will be hard-pressed to find an option this strong at the shortstop position for a relatively inexpensive price.
Outfield: $3,000 Shin-Soo Choo- Choo should make the most of his matchup with Daniel Gossett. He hasn’t experienced the greatest season, but it looks like he is making a turn in the right direction.
Outfield: $2,900 Max Kepler- Arguably the best German player in the MLB, Kepler has proved that he has the talent to be successful in the MLB. He draws an excellent matchup with Buck Farmer, meaning he could be in for a big game. He has a relatively high floor, but he has a very high ceiling because of his home run potential.
Outfield: $3,100 Jay Bruce- Bruce should be able to take advantage of his matchup with Carson Fulmer. 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.
