Good midmorning hope everyone had a lucrative night last night. Cheat sheet had some Great plays last night that help me get into the cash so I hope it did for you as well. So let’s keep that going and go ahead and break down this Sunday slate. Looks like we got plenty of pitching to choose from and we know I love strikeouts because on FanDuel that’s how you rack up the points along with the quality start an the W! So enough of me rambling let’s get to the slate and locate the great matchup’s and the great values and make some green!
Highest Run Expectancy
Red Sox – 6.2
Oriole’s – 5.8
Tigers – 5.2
Twins – 5.1
Cardinals – 5
Today’s Pitching Options
Chris Archer – hands-down the best play on the slate. His 33.5 K% at home versus a Brewers team striking out at 29.6%! The odds are in our favor on this one but he will be chalky.
Jon Lester – yes I know he faces the potent Nats lineup but after his abysmal start against Pittsburgh Lester has been locked in again. HIs K rate is up to 29% And his ERA is slowly trickling down. I see Lester getting 7/8 Ks with a some hits and 2 runs. So it’s a chance I’m willing to take with the low ownership we can get.
Other Options – Carlos Carrasco, Jimmy Nelson
Cheaper Pitching Options
Mike Fiers – Toronto struggles against righties so Fiers should get The upside here and go over around six innings with six strikeouts while giving up a couple runs. So similar to Lester with that upside and his price an the lower ownership he’s worth taking a shot on today.
Jameson Taillon – after getting touched up his last two starts I think Jamison bounces back in a big way against the Padres today. Not much helps a pitcher get right other than facing The padres AAA offense. I think Taillon cruises to the lineup and ends up as one of the top players today.
Other Options – Doug Fister
C – Wilson Contreras, Alex Avila, Yadier Molina, McCann (either)
1st – Anthony Rizzo, Freddie Freeman, Joey Votto, Chris Davis
2nd – Jonathan Schoop, Brian Dozier, Scooter Gennett, Javy Baez, Caesar Hernandez
3rd – Kris Bryant, Manny Machado, David Freese, Mike Moosetakas, Ehire Adrianna
SS – Elvis Andrus, Tim Beckham, Freddy Galvis, Paul DeJong
OF – Giancarlo Stanton, Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Justin Upton, Andrew McCutchen, Andrew Benentendi, Starling Marte, Adam Jones, Max Kepler, Matt Adams, Jim Adduci, Nick Williams, Jesse Winker, Nick Williams
