Jeff Hoffman (FD: $7,400, DK: $8,100)
I like this pick because like we’ve said in past videos and articles, if we can find a decent pitcher against the Giants, it’s almost a must-start. This is for sure 100% a GPP play. His stats show a 4-1 record, 38 Ks and a 1.12 WHIP but he does have a 4.29 ERA attached. The Rockies are a great hitting team this year on the road and off and they get a matchup against Matt Cain. If Hoffman can get 6+ Ks, he should be in line for the win tonight.
Sean Newcomb (FD: $7,700, DK: $6,700)
This is another GPP play as he gets to face a free-swinging Padres team that enjoys striking out as much as they probably enjoy playing baseball. It’s true that Newcomb comes in with an 0-2 record but he does have a 1.96 ERA.
Sean Manaea (FD: $8,200, DK: $6,200)
Career vs Current Astros Roster
AVG: 0.138 [11 for 80], BABIP: 0.179, K%: 26.3, BB%: 11.6
FIP: 3.03 Strikeout: 25 Groundout: 15Flyout: 13 Walk: 11 Single: 10Lineout: 5 Field Error: 4 Grounded Into DP: 3 Bunt Groundout: 2 Hit By Pitch: 2 Sac Bunt: 2 Home Run: 1Forceout: 1 Pop Out: 1
FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Infielders
Salvador Perez- C vs. Justin Verlander (FD: $3,100, DK: $3,700)
The top stack of the night might be the Kansas City Royals and the top bat of the night (in regards of hits) is Salvy. On a team that is moving up in the standings means runs are being scored. Lifetime against Verlander he has 23 hits in 52 ABs (.442 BA) with 13 singles, 8 doubles, and 2 HRs. He’s a cheaper option at catcher and could provide that pop we need.
DJ LeMahieu- 2B vs. Matt Cain (FD: $3,000, DK: $3,700)
Let’s take a look at Rockies’ bats against Mr. Cain. LeMahieu is coming off a terrific year last season and is following it up on a very hot-hitting team. Lifetime against Cain he has 9 hits in 22 ABs (.409 BA) with 6 singles, 2 doubles, and 1 HR. He’s going to be a little cheaper than some other names but absolutely love this play tonight.
Xander Bogaerts- SS vs. Hector Santiago (FD: $3,600, DK: $5,000)
Bogaerts is following up his 2016 campaign of hitting .294 with 21 HRs with a .319 BA and 5 HRs this season and we aren’t even halfway done yet. He’s also got a great matchup against Hector Santiago who comes in with a 4-6 record, 5.26 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. This game is being played in Fenway which is a great boost to his stats and he’s a cheaper option that you don’t hear people talk about much this season which is absurd.
FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Outfielders
Charlie Blackmon- OF vs Matt Cain (FD: $3,900, DK: $5,100)
We can take a player of Blackmon’s caliber at less than $4k on Fanduel against Matt Cain? Yes please! Blackmon is batting .321 with 5 SBs, 16 HRs and 62 runs scored and we aren’t even halfway over with the season yet! I agree AT&T Ballpark isn’t Coors, but Blackmon has some success against Cain with 6 hits in 20 ABs (.300 BA) with 4 singles, a double, and a HR with only 3 Ks.
Mitch Haniger- OF vs Aaron Nola (FD: $3,600, DK: $4,500)
There’s a couple reasons why I like this play tonight. Haniger has been dominating all season and even after coming back from being on the DL a month, he’s still batting .311 with 6 HRs, 22 RBIs, 32 runs scored and 3 SBs. Reason two is Aaron Nola. Nola has struggled all season and it doesn’t help that his team is absolutely terrible. Nola comes into this matchup with the Seattle Mariners with a 4-5 record, 4.32 ERA, 55 SO, 1.39 WHIP in 58.1 IP. In 13 games since coming off the DL, Haniger has only had 1 game with 0 FP and tonight feels like another night he’ll have success.
Keon Broxton- OF vs Tim Adleman (FD: $2,900, DK: $4,200)
I love his matchup against Adleman tonight. Broxton comes into this game with a .250 BA, 13 HRs, 32 RBIs, 44 Runs, and 13 SBs. He’s coming off of the series against the Braves where he averaged 26.93 FP. He’s coming off his best game where he went 3 for 4 with a double, HR, 3 RBI, and a SB with 40.7 FP on Fanduel. I absolutely love this kid tonight.
