Fantasy Baseball Sneaky Lower Priced Pitchers to Target on 4-3-18 (In Order):
Jordan Montgomery (SP Yankees) vs the punchless Rays offense (Chris Archer SP Rays)
USA TODAY Sports
JA Happ (SP Blue Jays) vs Chicago White Sox who is cooling down after their Opening Day explosion (Miguel Gonzalez SP White Sox)
Ty Blach (SP Giants) vs the Mariners (Marco Gonzales SP Mariners). The Giants are due for an offensive explosion and this is a good game for it. Ty Blach pitches well at home.
Kyle Freeland (SP Rockies) at the Padres (Tyson Ross SP Padres). The Padres at Petco Park is a great matchup for most competent pitchers.
Garrett Richards (SP Angels) vs the Indians (Josh Tomlin SP Indians). Richards pitches well at home and Tomlin usually deals or gets roughed up. This is an OK play.
***START CHRIS SALE (SP Red Sox) in ALL FAN DUEL and DRAFT KINGS TOURNAMENTS. He is at Miami vs Jose Urena. Work your salary cap with the hitters. There is no need to start anybody else at SP. Bryce Harper (OF Nationals) and Chris Sale (SP Red Sox) should be in ALL your Fan Duel and Draft Kings lineups.
Fantasy Baseball Pitchers You SHOULD PICK UP Hitters against them on 4-3-18:
Mike Wright (SP Orioles) at the Astros. The Orioles are struggling mightily on offense and the Astros are the worst matchup for any starting pitcher. Wright is a fill-in starter for regular Alex Cobb (SP Orioles).
Cody Reed (SP Reds) vs the Cubs…be wary though the Cubs bats are ICE COLD coming off 2 shutouts in a row. However, Contreras, Bryant, Russell, and Rizzo for the Cubs have very good numbers vs Reed.
Jose Urena (SP Marlins) vs the Red Sox and Chris Sale (SP Red Sox). The Red Sox bats are waking up and Urena is a below average major league pitcher.
AJ Cole (SP Nationals) at the Braves…..he is unproven in the majors and Atlanta hitting pretty well going into the series.
Fantasy Baseball Hitters with GREAT NUMBERS vs OPPOSING Starting Pitchers on 4-3-18:
BRYCE HARPER (OF Nationals) is a WHOPPING 17 for 37 with 3 2B, 7 HR, 8 R, and 17 RBI vs Julio Teheran (SP Braves)
Whit Merrifield (2B KC Royals) is 4 for 10 with 2 doubles, 1 triple, 2 runs, and 4 RBI vs Matt Boyd (SP Tigers)
Eugenio Suarez (3B Reds) is 8 for 27 with 3 doubles, 2 HR, 4 R, and 5 RBI vs Jon Lester (SP Cubs)
Billy Hamilton (OF Reds) is 7 for 19 with 2 HR, 6 R, 2 RBI, and 6 SB vs Jon Lester (SP Cubs) and we are all aware of Lester’s issues with holding runners on and not throwing to first base at all.
Willson Contreras (C Cubs) is 4 for 6 with 1 2B, 2 HR, 4 R, and 6 RBI vs Cody Reed (SP Reds)
Kris Bryant (3B Cubs) is 4 for 5 with 1 2B, 1 HR, 6 R, and 2 RBI vs Cody Reed (SP Reds)
Anthony Rizzo (1B Cubs) is 2 for 6 with 2 HR, 4 R, and 6 RBI vs Cody Reed (SP Reds)
Addison Russell (SS Cubs) is 2 for 6 with 1 HR, 3 R, and 2 RBI vs Cody Reed (SP Reds)
Adam Duvall (OF Reds) is 7 for 25 with 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 R, and 1 RBI vs Jon Lester (SP Cubs)
Mike Trout (OF Angels) is 5 for 9 with 2 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 1 R, and 3 RBI vs Josh Tomlin (SP Indians)
Edwin Encarnacion (1B Indians) is 5 for 12 with 1 2B, 2 HR, 4 R, and 4 RBI vs Garrett Richards (SP Angels)
Chad Pinder (SS/OF) is 4 for 4 with 2 2B, 2 HR, 3 R, and 2 RBI vs Cole Hamels (SP Rangers). Pinder is a backup but I think he finds the starting lineup tomorrow night with those numbers.
Kole Calhoun (OF Angels) is 5 for 8 with 1 2B, 3 R, and 1 RBI vs Josh Tomlin (SP Indians)
Charlie Blackmon (OF Rockies) is 5 for 18 with 1 2B, and a 2 run HR vs Tyson Ross (SP Padres)
Wil Myers (1B/OF Padres) is 3 for 5 with 1 2B, 2 R, and 1 RBI vs Kyle Freeland (SP Rockies)
Khris Davis (OF A’s) is 4 for 12 with 3 HR, 4 R, and 5 RBI vs Cole Hamels (SP Rangers)
Jonathan Lucroy (C A’s) is 6 for 15 with 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 R, and 3 RBI vs Cole Hamels (SP Rangers)
Evan Gattis (C Astros) is 2 for 3 with a 3 run HR vs Mike Wright (SP Orioles)
Gary Sanchez (C Yankees) is 4 for 15 with 1 2B, and 2 solo HR vs Chris Archer (SP Rays)
Tim Beckham (SS/3B Orioles) is 3 for 3 with a solo HR vs Justin Verlander (SP Astros). Be wary of the Orioles hitters right now as they are ice cold.
Manny Machado (3B/SS Orioles) is 7 for 24 with 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 4 R, and 2 RBI vs Justin Verlander (SP Astros). Be wary of the Orioles hitters right now as they are ice cold.
Adam Jones (OF Orioles) is 11 for 44 with 3 HR, 7 R, and 7 RBI vs Justin Verlander (SP Astros). Be wary of the Orioles hitters right now as they are ice cold.
Yasiel Puig (OF Dodgers) generally does well at Arizona and Puig is 2 for 6 with a solo HR vs Zac Godley (SP Diamondbacks)
Matt Kemp (OF Dodgers) is 3 for 9 with 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 R, and 4 RBI vs Zac Godley (SP Diamondbacks)
Paul Goldschmidt (1B Diamondbacks) is 10 for 44 with 2 2B, 2 HR, 5 R, and 8 RBI vs Clayton Kershaw (SP Dodgers). Most people won’t start Goldschmidt in Fan Duel or Draft Kings vs Kershaw. Goldschmidt should be cheaper tomorrow.
Nolan Arenado (3B Rockies) is 5 for 22 with 2 HR, 2 R, and 3 RBI vs Tyson Ross (SP Padres)
Zack Cozart (3B/SS Angels) is 8 for 17 with 2 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 5 R, and 1 RBI vs Josh Tomlin (SP Indians)
