I’m playing a decent amount of MLB today, so I’m throwing together a cheat sheet. Let’s go game-by-game and break this down. For batters, I’ll list them in order of interest.
ATL @ WAS
Luiz Gohara: No.
Max Scherzer: Elite play in all formats, and should be locked in cash.
ATL: I’m fading Braves.
WAS: Anthony Rendon (Elite), Ryan Zimmerman (Elite), Howie Kendrick, Daniel Murphy, Jayson Werth
I’m not going crazy stacking these guys or anything, but I like looking at them as viable one- or two-offs.
MIA @ PHI
Dan Straily: Not for me, but if he fits, I’m okay with him in GPPs tonight.
Aaron Nola: Nola is my second favorite pitcher tonight behind Scherzer.
MIA: I personally don’t think I’ll be stacking against Nola, but I do think it’s a viable contrarion option in tournaments tonight.
PHI: Rhys Hoskins (Elite), Aaron Altherr (Elite), Cesar Hernandez, Freddy Galvis, Nick Williams
Rhys Hoskins is my favorite hitter on the slate, tonight.
BAL @ TOR
Kevin Gausman: I’m okay with Gausman in tournaments tonight.
Marcus Stroman: Stroman is a very solid play tonight in tournaments.
BAL: Chris Davis
TOR: Richard Urena, Justin Smoak, Kendrys Morales
I’m fading the Orioles, but I think you can make a case for Chris Davis.
OAK @ BOS
Jharel Cotton: Cotton is too dangerous to use.
Doug Fister: I’m not playing Fister tonight in Fenway Park.
OAK: Matt Olson, Khris Davis
BOS: Mookie Betts (Elite), Mitch Moreland, Andrew Benintendi
NYM @ CHC
Matt Harvey: Ha. No.
