Will Smith- He has back-to-back games with HRs and now gets a fantastic matchup against Steven Brault. While Smith has never faced Brault before, I still can’t get away from him today.

Favorite Plays:


Salvador Perez

Yan Gomes

Travis d’Arnaud




 Eric Hosmer- Give me some L/R matchup in Coors between Hosmer and Senzatela. Hosmer has 5 hits in 19 ABs against Senzatela including 2 doubles and only 4 Ks. More of a GPP play since he’ll be priced up due to Coors.



Favorite Plays:

Mike Moustakas
Aledmys Diaz
Freddie Freeman




Whit Merrifield- Going back to the well with Whit today. He let us down on Sunday but it’s a new week. He’s 9 for 21 including 2 doubles and 3 HRs against Jake Odorizzi. You can utilize him in the 2B or OF slot as well which is a bonus.    


Favorite Plays:


DJ LeMahieu

Jazz Chisholm

Jonathan India




Jed Lowrie- Absolutely love Jed tonight. He has the second best matchup with BvP on this slate. Has 14 hits in 53 ABs including 3 doubles against Keuchel. Keuchel really struggled against the Twins last start and could see the A’s smashing him tonight.



Favorite Plays:


Matt Chapman
Manny Machado
Justin Turner



Trea Turner- Give me some Turner against Brault today. You could use him as either SS or 2B and you could squeeze in another SS stud if you would like. Before Sunday night’s game Turner has been so/so at the plate giving us small FP outputs. He should go under-owned in that case.

Favorite Plays:


Amed Rosario
Wander Franco
Kevin Newman



Wil Myers
Mark Canha
Starling Marte
Aaron Judge
Nelson Cruz
Austin Meadows
Yordan Alvarez
AJ Pollock

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
