Casual Weather MIL at PIT- There is only a 5% chance of rain at game time, but that grows to 25% later in the game. Could have a mid-game delay. PHI at ATL- 55% chance of scattered thunderstorms during the game makes this one a risky play. BOS at BAL- Like the Pirates/Brewers game, this one starts with a 5% chance of rain and grows throughout the game. Chance of a mid-game delay. 3. Favorite Stacks Indians versus Michael Fulmer– Fulmer has been awful so far this season and the Indians have a nice stack opportunity at the top part of their lineup. Seattle vs Kolby Allard– I actually like Allard from a straight ability standpoint, but he is giving up too many fly balls. Giants versus Robbie Ray– Robbie Ray is an absolute mess and the Giants have some guys that can hit lefties pretty well. Reds versus Dakota Hudson– Hudson is giving up too much hard contact for a guy that is allowing contact on almost 95% of his zone contact. 4. Favorite Hitting Plays Catcher (Expensive): Christian Vasquez at BAL Catcher (Punt/Value): Joey Bart vs ARI. Bart is only $2,300 and has a nice matchup versus the volatile lefty Robbie Ray. Also consider Austin Nola, Max Stassi, Tucker Barnhart, and Keibert Ruiz. 1B (Expensive): Paul Goldschmidt vs CIN 1B (Punt/Value): Wilmer Flores vs ARI. Flores has homered in his last two games and is always in the lineup versus lefties. Also consider Todd Frazier, Edwin Encarnicion, Justin Smoak, Darin Ruf. 2B (Expensive): Keston Hiura at PIT 2B (Punt/Value): Brendan Rodgers vs LAD. I don’t know how good he is at this point, but the Rockies brought him up and he is $2,400. Also consider Abraham Toro. 3B (Expensive): Jose Ramirez vs DET 3B (Punt/Value): Abraham Toro at SD. Toro would be a more well regarded prospect if he wasn’t blocked by the stacked Astros lineup. However, with Bregman on the IL, he has a shot to be in the lineup regularly and if he is, he has a nice matchup. Also consider Alex Bohm and Jeimer Candelario. SS (Expensive): Francisco Lindor vs DET SS (Punt/Value): It is a really small sample, but Dubon is crushing lefties and gets Robbie Ray. Also consider Brendan Rodgers. OF (Expensive): J.D. Martinez, Nelson Cruz, Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts, Christian Yelich, Nick Castellanos, Anthony Santander, Franmil Reyes. OF (Punt/Value): Dylan Moore, Nick Solak, Kyle Lewis, Jesse Winker, Kyle Tucker, Robbie Grossman, Austin Slater, and Mauricio Dubon 5. Favorite Pitching Plays Cash Games: Aaron Nola, Max Fried, Jake Odorizzi, Adrian Houser, Adam Plutko Tournament: Walker Buehler, Aaron Nola, Max Fried, Adrian Houser, Adam Plutko, Anthony DeSclafani Contrarian Plays: Danny Duffy, Jon Gray, Kolby Allar, Andrew Heaney The Daily Overlay will be running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday this season, so stay tuned for more DFS content next week.
