Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice – 6/7


Also, as this is written the day before/morning of the games, please check the lineups and weather to ensure you have all active players going tonight!

PitcherChris Archer – Tampa Bay Rays

Chris Archer is 6-4 on the season with a 2.01 ERA and 0.96 WHIP and has posted 97 K’s in just 76.0 IP. Archer has a great matchup against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday as Seattle is ranked 2nd in MLB in total strikeouts against right-handed pitching on the season and has just a .229 average against right handers in 2015.

CatcherJason Castro – Houston Astros

Castro is hitting .316 against R.A Dickey (5.53 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) in his career with a double and has 6 homeruns and 13 RBI’s on the season. For the low price and the ability to hit of power, Castro has good value this afternoon.

First BasePrince Fielder – Texas Rangers

Fielder is going against Jeremy Guthrie of the Kansas City Royals which is always a good matchup to have in your daily fantasy lineups. On top of that, Fielder is hitting .500 (12-14) against Guthrie in his career and has posted a .356 average with 10 homeruns and 40 RBI’s on the season.

Second BaseChase Utley – Philadelphia Phillies

Going to save some money at Second Base today and take my chances with Chase Utley. Utley is hitting just .202 on the season with 4 homeruns and 24 RBI’s, however he is hitting .294 over the past week and has a career .556 (5-9) average against Ryan Vogelsong of the San Francisco Giants.

ShortstopTroy Tulowitzki – Colorado Rockies

Troy Tulowitzki is finally producing at the levels his fantasy owners would expect as the veteran shortstop has hit .500 with 2 homeruns and 9 RBI’s over the past week. Tulowitzki is hitting .303 on the season with 6 homeruns and 29 RBI’s and has hit .354 at Coors Field over his past three seasons.

Third BaseMike Moustakas – Kansas City Royals

Mike Moustakas is hitting .314 on the season with 5 homeruns and 18 RBI’s and has a favorable matchup against Colby Lewis of the Texas Rangers in which he has posted a career.444 average and 1.361 off the right-hander. Moustakas is hitting .333 off righties this season and as Lewis is allowing LHB to hit .296 and have .850 OPS in 2015, Moustakas has good value on Saturday.

OutfieldMatt Kemp – San Diego Padres

Matt Kemp has struggled a bit in 2015 as the veteran outfielder is hitting just .256 with 2 homeruns and 31 RBI’s however, he has a good matchup against Johnny Cueto of the Cincinnati Reds this Sunday as in his career he has posted a .462 (6-13) average with 2 homeruns and 2 RBI’s. Kemp is hitting .345 during day games and for the low price, is good value today.

OutfieldMichael Brantley – Cleveland Indians

I kept going back in forth with Brandon Moss (who has been great for me this week) and Michael Brantley as they have a favorable matchup against the right-handed Bud Norris on Sunday, however, I decided to go with Brantley as he isn’t as “boom or bust” as Brandon Moss can be. Brantley is hitting .302 on the season with 4 homeruns and 33 RBI’s on the season and has a .500 (3-6) average against Norris in his career.

OutfieldWill Venable – San Diego Padres

Will Venable is hitting just .261 with 4 homeruns and 15 RBI’s on the season and although he is hitting just .222 (6-27) over the past week, he has had good success off Johnny Cueto. In his career against the right-handed Cueto, Venable has posted a .467 average (7-15) with 2 homeruns and 5 RBI’s. Venable has a .779 OPS against right-handers on the season has hit .309 on the road in 2015.
