DFS – Fantasy Baseball – MLB FanDuel Lineups, Picks & Advice – 6/23/18
We're going to be loading up on our bats tonight as I want to exploit the Red Sox and Astros matchups agianst Mike Leake and Ian Kennedy as much as possible.
The pitching postiion is a tough choice tonight as deGrom is just a but too expensive for my liking agianst the Dodgers. I would take Kershaw agianst he Mets who struggle agianst LHP, however, Kershaw is on a pitch-limit tonight and obviously can't be rolled out at that cost if he is will be limited. McCullers is probably who I would roll with if I wanted to spend up however, as I want as many big bats in their tonight, I'm taking my chances will Marcus Stroman who will also be coming the DL. Stroman had success last season against the Angels throwing a complete game (9.0 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 5 K) and although he will be on a pitch limit, I think that will see more of the Marcus Stroman of old now that he is healthy and if he can get us around 30 points tonight, that will be enough to let our offense do the rest of the damage.
As for our offense....we're stacked tonight!
We have Jose Alutve, Carlos Correa, and Evan Gattis of the Astros in their solid matchup against Ian Kennedy. Kennedy has a 6.16 ERA while allowing opponents to hit .311 against him on the road this season. Altuve and Gattis have good career history against Kennedy and as Correa has 12 of his 13 HR's agianst RHP on the season, I'll take my chances on him as it's pretty weak at the SS position tonight.
We have a big stack of Red Sox in Rafael Devers, J.D. Martinez, Andrew Benintendi, and our punt play in Jackie Bradley Jr. Mike Leake is allowing the current Red Sox roster to post a .321 average and .825 OPS against him in his career and didn't fare well against the Red Sox earier this season as he lasted 6 innings while giving up 8 hits and 5 ER's. All of our Red Sox stack has had success agianst Leake in their careers as combined they are hitting .371 agianst Leake with 3 HR's.
Rounding out our offense will be Salvador Perez who comes in afffordable at just $2,900 and is 4 for 9 against McCullers with 2 solo HR's in his career.
Check back later as I'll post any adjustments needed due to "confirmed lineups" and/or weather!
Good Luck Tonight!
