FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Infielders

Evan Longoria vs John Lackey

It’s another day and another match-up that is great for Longo. Lackey comes into this game struggling like most of the Cubs’ pitching staff this season. He has a 5-9 record with a bloated 5.24 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Lifetime against Lackey Longoria has 14 hits in 40 ABs (.350 BA) with 10 singles, 2 doubles, and 2 HRs. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a BOOMstick shot out of this man today.

Elvis Andrus vs Doug Fister

You’re probably reading this and seeing these first two picks and thinking this is just a repeat article of yesterday but we have another top notch match-up with Andrus against Fister. This will be the 33 year old’s 3 start with the Red Sox and he comes in with an 0-1 record, 4.91 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and only 11 Ks. He’s hit 100 pitches and 105 pitches in his previous two starts and hasn’t made it past the 6th inning. The Rangers should be able to get to him and I don’t see him making it out of the 6th inning again. Lifetime against Fister, Andrus has 13 hits in 45 ABs (.289 BA) including 9 singles and 4 doubles.

Didi Gregorius vs Marco Estrada 

Hands down this guy deserves his trip to Miami to play in the 2017 All-Star game with the kinds of numbers he has put up even missing a full month of the season. #SirDidi4Sure has had 235 ABs with 71 hits including 11 doubles and 10 HRs with only 35 Ks. Want to vote for him?
Cast up to 35 ballots by texting ‘A3’ to 89269. Lifetime Gregorius has 6 hits in 24 ABs (.250 BA) including 3 singles and 3 HRs. This game is playing in Yankee Stadium and Didi’s swing is made for this stadium. Look out for a BOOMstick shot tonight.


Other Infielders: Mike Napoli, Chase Headley, Rougned Odor, Ryan Zimmerman, Paul Goldschmidt, Gary Sanchez


FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Nelson Cruz vs Jason Vargas

If you’re not using Vargas, look to Cruz to anchor your outfielders in tonight’s slate. Cruz comes into this game batting .286 with 14 HRs and a league leading 59 RBIs. He’s had success to the tun of 10 hits in 31 ABs (.323 BA) with 4 singles, 2 doubles, and 4 HRs against Vargas. He’s expensive but should be worth it tonight.

Jose Bautista vs Michael Pineda

If you’re not using Pineda as a pitching option tonight, look at Bautista against Pineda. If there’s one thing Pineda has done this season it’s been to give up the fly balls every couple of starts and he’s due for a start like that today. Joey Bats started the season off very slow and still is only batting .239 but he does have 14 HRs and we could very well see one here tonight.


Other Outfield Options: Adam Jones, Shin-Soo Choo, Mark Trumbo, Curtis Granderson, Jacoby Ellsbury, Aaron Judge

As discussed in previous Youtube videos, after 7 years, we've decided to take some time off. My plan is to take a couple of months off and transition to making FantasyTeamAdvisors a Season-Long and DFS Fantasy Football website. Hopefully, you understand and we'll be back better than ever!
