Spectre’s MLB DFS Breakdown: Friday, September 15th, 2017

Happy Friday!  Let’s go game-by-game and break this down.

OAK @ PHI

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS

Daniel Mengden: No thank you.
Mark Leiter Jr.: Leiter Jr. is an intriguing GPP option.

BATTERS:
OAK:
 Matt Olson, Matt Joyce, Jed Lowrie
PHI: 
Rhys Hoskins (Elite), Freddy Galvis, Odubel Herrera, Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr

Much higher on the Phillies than I am on the Athletics.  I’d probably only use them as one-offs.

 

BAL @ NYY

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS

Gabriel Ynoa: No reason to go here.
Luis Severino: Elite play in all formats.

BATTERS:
BAL:
 I’m not going here, but you can if you want to be super contrarian.
NYY: 
Gary Sanchez (Elite), Aaron Judge (Elite), Didi Gregorius (Elite), Brett Gardner, Starlin Castro, Todd Frazier, Starlin Castro, Matt Holliday

 

LAD @ WAS

7:05PM EST

PITCHERS:
Alex Wood: Not enough upside.
Edwin Jackson: No.

BATTERS:
LAD: 
Corey Seager (Elite), Cody Bellinger (Elite), Justin Turner (Elite), Yasmani Grandal, Yasiel Puig, Chris Taylor
WAS: 
Anthony Rendon, Ryan Zimmerman

 

BOS @ TBR

7:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Chris Sale: You know the drill.
Matt Andriese: I’m not going there.

BATTERS:
BOS: 
Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi, Mitch Moreland
TBR: 
Negative

 

CHW @ DET

7:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Carson Fulmer: Avoiding this.
Anibal Sanchez: And this.

BATTERS:
CHW:
Avisail Garcia (Elite), Jose Abreu (Elite), Yoan Moncada, Nicky Delmonico, Kevan Smith
DET: Ian Kinsler (Elite), Miguel Cabrera (Elite), Nicholas Castellanos, Mikie Mahtook, James McCann, Jeimer Candelario

 

KCR @ CLE

7:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Jason Vargas: No.
Trevor Bauer: I’d use Bauer as an SP2. Not sure I’d go there on FD.

BATTERS:
KCR: 
Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas
CLE:
 Francisco Lindor (Elite), Jose Ramirez, Austin Jackson, Edwin Incarnation, Yandy Diaz, Brandon Guyer

I faded off the Cleveland Lindors last night and I’ll probably do the same tonight, with the exception of a potential one- or two-off.

 

PIT @ CIN

7:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Chad Kuhl: No
Homer Bailey: Double no.

BATTERS:
PIT: 
Starling Marte, Andrew McCutchen, Josh Bell, Adam Frazier
CIN: 
Jesse Winker (Elite), Joey Votto (Elite), Zack Cozart, Scooter Gennett, Scott Schebler, Eugenio Suarez, Adam Duvall

Love the cheap Reds stack tonight.

 

NYM @ ATL

7:35PM EST

PITCHERS:
Rafael Montero: 
Sean Newcomb: 

BATTERS:
NYM:
Jose Reyes
ATL: 
Freddie Freeman, Matt Kemp

 

MIL @ MIA

8:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
Jeremy Jeffress: He’s out of their bullpen, so I don’t expect him to pitch for very long. This is a bullpen game.
Jose Urena: Not going here.

BATTERS:
MIL:
Eric Thames, Travis Shaw, Neil Walker
MIA: 
Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, Justin Bour, Christian Yelich

 

 

SEA @ HOU

8:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
James Paxton: I’m interested to see how he pitches, but you can use the big names against him.
Charlie Morton: Seattle has been hot, but I like Morton tonight.

BATTERS:
SEA: 
I’m not going here tonight. Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager, Yonder Alonso if you want to.
HOU: 
George Springer, Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa

Playing hitters from this game kind of feels like walking on eggshells.  Using the Houston guys as one-offs is probably where I’ll go.

 

TOR @ MIN

8:10PM EST

PITCHERS:
J.A. Happ: I don’t mind giving Happ a shot in GPPs.
Bartolo Colon: Ugh.  I don’t think I can.

BATTERS:
TOR: 
Justin Smoak, Josh Donaldson, Richard Urena
MIN: 
Brian Dozier, Eduardo Escobar, Byron Dozier (I don’t think I’m going here.)

This game COULD wind up being a shootout, but I have this feeling it’s going to end up being 3-1 in one direction or the other.  Feels like a snooze.

 

SDP @ COL

8:40PM EST

PITCHERS:
Clayton Richard: No thanks.
Tyler Chatwood: No thanks.  He’s been worse at home, too.

BATTERS:
SDP: 
Manuel Margot, Jose Pirela, Wil Myers, Yangervis Solarte, Cory Spangenberg
COL:
Charlie Blackmon (Elite), Nolan Arenado (Elite), Trevor Story (Elite), Mark Reynolds, D.J. LeMahieu, Ian Desmond, Jonathan Lucroy

 

TEX @ LAA

10:07PM EST

PITCHERS:
Nick Martinez: Nope.
Bud Norris: Who?

BATTERS:
TEX: 
Shin-Soo Choo, Joey Gallo, Adrian Beltre, Carlos Gomez
LAA: 
Mike Trout (Elite), Justin Upton (Elite), Luis Valbuena, Kole Calhoun, Albert Pujols

 

ARI @ SFG

10:15PM EST

PITCHERS:
Robbie Ray: Low-owned Robbie Ray?  Loading up in GPPs.
Jeff Samardzija: Same, but nowhere near as much as Ray.

BATTERS:
ARI: 
Not going here.
SFG: 
Or here.
