Spectre’s MLB DFS Breakdown: Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Let’s go game-by-game and break this down.  Pitching is kind of gross tonight.  For batters, I’ll list them in order of interest.

MIA @ PHI

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS

Vance Worley: No reason to go here.
Jake Thompson: Same.  Even without Stanton, Ozuna, and Yelich.  (Babies.)

BATTERS:
MIA:
Justin Bour (Elite), Dee Gordon (Elite), J.T. Realmuto, Derek Dietrich
PHI: 
Odubel Herrera (Elite), Nick Williams (Elite), Rhys Hoskins, Cesar Hernandez, Freddy Galvis, Aaron Altherr

I like the lefties here a bit more than the righties, but I’m certainly not ruling out our BFF Rhys.

 

BAL @ NYY

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS

Wade Miley: No thank you.
Masahiro Tanaka: Even if I weren’t a Yankee fan, I’d still love Tanaka tonight. Viable in all formats.

BATTERS:
BAL:
(Not personally going here, but) Manny Machado, Chris Davis, Trey Mancini
NYY: 
Aaron Judge (Elite), Gary Sanchez (Elite), Matt Holiday, Didi Gregorius, Todd Frazier, Clint Frazier

One of these days, Clint Frazier is going to remind everyone that he exists.

 

ATL @ WAS

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS:
Mike Foltynewicz: Foltynewicz is viable in all formats tonight against a righty-heavy Nationals lineup without Zimmerman, Rendon, and Murphy.
Tanner Roark: Roark is in play in all formats tonight, but I’m not sure I’ll be going there unless he happens to land comfortably in a lineup.

BATTERS:
ATL:
Freddie Freeman
WAS: 
Trea Turner (Elite), Adam Lind, Wilmer Difo,

 

KCR @ CLE

7:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Jake Junis: I don’t think so.  MAYBE in a large-field GPP.
Josh Tomlin: You can make a case for him tonight, but I won’t be going there.  I actually think targeting against him is a more interesting move.

BATTERS:
KCR:
Eric Hosmer, Salvador Perez, Mike Moustakas, Brandon Moss
CLE: 
Francisco Lindor, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jose Ramirez, Edwin Encarnacion, Jay Bruce, Carlos Santana

Despite the win streak, this game isn’t SUPER interesting to me.  I’ll be using these guys mostly as one- or two-offs.

 

NYM @ CHC

8:05PM EST

PITCHERS:
Seth Lugo: No!
Jen-Ho Tseng: An interesting up-and-comer.  Not in the player pool yet.  Womp.

BATTERS:
NYM:
Jose Reyes, Asdrubal Cabrera
CHC:
Anthony Rizzo (Elite), Willson Contreras (Elite), Ian Happ (Elite), Kyle Schwarber, Kris Bryant

The cubs are one of my top stacks tonight.

 

SEA @ TEX

8:05PM EST

PITCHERS:
Felix Hernandez: Not on Felix tonight coming off the DL (again).
Andrew Cashner: No.

BATTERS:
SEA:
Jean Segura (Elite), Robinson Cano (Elite), Kyle Seager (Elite), Yonder Alonso (Elite), Nelson Cruz (Elite), Mike Zunino, Mitch Haniger
TEX:
Shin-Soo Choo (Elite), Joey Gallo (Elite), Nomar Mazara, Elvis Andrus, Willie Calhoun, Delino DeShields

I’m going back to these Seattle guys tonight, and the Rangers (especially lefties) are exciting up against Felix.  This is a stackable game.

 

TOR @ MIN

8:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Brett Anderson: Not going there.
Jose Berrios: Right up there with Tanaka for me tonight.

BATTERS:
TOR:
Justin Smoak, Richard Urena, Teoscar Hernandez
MIN: 
Brian Dozier (Elite), Byron Buxton, Eduardo Escobar, Jorge Polanco, Chris Gimenez

 

HOU @ LAA

10:07PM EST

PITCHERS:
Brad Peacock: Peacock is in play tonight, but I don’t think I’d go there in cash.
Ricky Nolasco: Do I even have to type it?

BATTERS:
HOU:
Carlos Correa (Elite), George Springer (Elite), Jose Altuve (Elite), Josh Reddick, Marwin Gonzalez, Alex Bregman, Yuli Gurriel
LAA: 
Mike Trout, Justin Upton, Luis Valbuena
