I won’t have time to put up articles for FanDuel that often , but when I do have time I will throw them up.
The chalk stack tonight is the Arizona Diamondbacks against Jonathan Niese and the Pittsbrugh Pirates.
You can split stack or straight stack depending on your other plays.
1-6 have solid match ups and prices
1- Jean Segura SS 3300
2- Brandon Drury 3B 2300 (Big time power with high upside hitting in front of Goldschmidt.)
3- Paul Goldschmidt 1B 4500 if you can spend he’s a great option, but you can also split stack and go with Rizzo or even pay down for Belt.
4- Yosmany Tomas OF 3400 I don’t love the price, but I love the match up.
5- Wellington Castillo C 2900 One of the best catcher match ups tonight.
6- David Peralta OF 3300 His slide down the batting order will keep his ownership numbers down.
Tampa Bay versus C.C. Sabathia and the Yankees.
1- Logan Forsythe 2B 3300 I like the price and the match up.
2- Brandon Guyer OF 2400 Guyer is a platoon specialist hitting against a soft tossing lefty. It’s go time with that price tag and the numbers he’s put against lefties lately.
3- Evan Longoria 3B 2900 Longoria will be very popular tonight with his price and match up. I’m afraid CC will pitch around him to get to the lefty Dickerson.
7- Steven Souza Jr. OF Souza is down in the order, but is in a good spot to be very under owned with a big ceiling.
San Francisco versus Jarred Cosart and the Marlins
This one is a bit sneaky as you’re not really targeting big time home run hitters. You’re going after a pitcher that has struggled to start the year.
*Lineup not out yet*
1- Denard Span OF 3700 I don’t love the price, but if I’m going to stack he’s in there.
2- Joe Panick 2B 3200 Panick showed improved power to start the year and has cooled a bit. He could be a nice sneaky play tonight.
4- Brandon Belt 1B 3100 Belt has been cold lately, but is facing a nice match up at a cheap price. If I want to pay up else where he is in the mix.
The White Sox against Martin Perez and the Rangers
Here I am only targeting the two big power hitters with high ceilings. Perez scared owners last Friday as he cruised through the Orioles order early, but then was tagged for a number of home runs late.
2- Austin Jackson OF 2300 cheap and in a great spot in the order. Only GPP obviously.
3- Jose Abreu 1B 3300 Abreu’s price is steady in this lower tier and he doesn’t see many pitches to hit, but tonight it may be different.
4- Todd Frazier 3B 3700 Frazier has struggled to hit consistently since making the move to the White Sox, but I don’t mind him as an under owned option at 3B when many are going to be on Longoria. Give me the high ceiling and leverage on a few teams.
