3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Kevin Gausman – 10.5DK – Incredible upside on any given slate. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 2.81 xFIP, 32% strikeout rate and a 5% walk rate. Prolly comes in as a top 3 owned pitcher tonight.
  2. Luis Castillo – 9.6DK – You can make a case for Snell, Kershaw, and Nola as well here, but I like Castillo the best of the bunch. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 3.28 xFIP, 33% strikeout rate and only a 5% walk rate. Probably will go a bit overlooked. Love him here.
  3. James Paxton – 8.2DK –  Like the price a lot here. While the Nationals are a pesky team, Paxton should be able to get 6 clean innings here.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – I am a little disappointed in the Braves performance last night, but we are def back to the pile here tonight against Randy Vazquez. Not much more needs to be said here, but Olson and Riley are my 2 favorites..Ozuna has a 13 game hit streak as well.
  2. Texas Rangers –  I will be playing the Rangers and the Braves every night. They are the 2 best offenses in the league by far. The Rangers get Detmers here who has really struggled over the last month to both sides of the plate. Corey Seager is one of the best LvL hitters in baseball and is my favorite play here.
  3. Chicago Cubs – The Wrigley wind game!!!! 12 MPH wind blowing out to left tonight!! Love the Cubbies here against Clevinger. The top 6 in the lineup are my fav targets here.
