Update (5:18 PM) - Hi Everyone! Needed to make a few adjustments as Yuli Gurriel isn't getting the start tongiht. Here are my changes:
1B - Replaced Yuli Gurriel with Mitch Moreland (BOS) - Moreland has done a ton of damage vs. RHP on the season and has a .984 OPS at Fenway Park on the year.
OF - Replaced Jackie Bradley Jr. with Josh Reddick (HOU) - Reddick has been hitting well as of late and you have to like the extra value he brings tonight, hitting clean-up for the Astros.
OF - Replaced Nick Williams with Chris Young (LAA) - I like Williams but needed to cut $100 somewhere. I don't mind playing Young who is a LHP specialist and has always fared well agianst the Red Sox.
Good Luck Tonight!
Hi Everyone! We’ve been able to cash two of the last three nights in our DraftKings 50/50’s and we’re hoping to continue that trend tonight! Also, if the contests haven’t started already, check out who we are rolling with this afternoon!
As the pitching position, we’re going to be spending up for Houston’s Lance McCullers Jr. (P) and take a chance on Cincinnati’s Anthony DeSclafani (P). On the season, McCullers Jr. has posted an 8-3 record with a 3.82 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. McCullers has strikeout upside as he 9.45 K/9 ratio on the season and has recorded 9 K’s in each of his last two games. McCullers is holding opponents to just a .221 average on the season and has fared well against the Rays in his limited experience against them as he is holding the current Rays roster to just a .083 average in 24 totals AB’s while picking up 10 K’s. DeSclafani had a rough start to his season, but has looked much better as of late and currently has a 4.09 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. DeSclafani can give up some HR’s however, in his last two outings he has given up just a combined 6 hits and 4 ER’s. DeSclafani has gotten at least 16 DraftKings points in each of his last three starts and as the Brewers can strikeout as they rank just 23rd in MLB in team strikeout rate, I think the Reds right-hander can get us 20-25 points tonight.
On the offensive end, we’re going to be going with a Houston stack tonight as they’ll be seeing the Rays variety of bullpen pitchers, starting with the right-hander, Ryne Stanek. Houston recently saw the bullpen lineup a little less than two weeks ago in their 5-4 victory over the Rays on June 18th, so I do like the Houston offense tonight as they shouldn’t be surprised by anything Tampa Bay will through at them. I’m going to be stacking Yuli Gurriel (1B), Jose Altuve (2B), and Evan Gattis (Utility). Gurriel is starting to hit for power as he has two HR’s over the past week and has been great on the road this season posting a .323 average. Altuve is once again one of the best hitters in MLB as he is hitting .345 with 7 HR’s and 41 RBI’s on the season and has also been great away from home, posting a .394 average on the season. Gattis has 8 HR’s in the month of June and like many of this teammates, has been a monster on the road this season, posting a .317 average with 10 of his 15 HR’s.
Along with the Astros, I’m going to be stacking some of the Philadelphia Phillies against Tanner Roark of the Washington Nationals tonight. Roark didn’t fare well against the Phillies in his recent start last Friday, Roark lasted just 4.1 innings while giving up 7 hits and 6 ER’s. I’m taking some of the affordable bats of the Phillies in Nick Williams (OF), and Maikel Franco (3B) while paying up for Rhys Hoskins (OF). Williams is only hitting .228 on the season but does have some nice HR-upside as he has 9 HR’s on the season. Williams has fared well against the Nationals this season, posting a .313 average. Franco has been in back in the starting lineup over the past week and is certainly taking advantage of it as he is hitting .471 with a HR and 3 doubles over the past week. Franco has also hit Washington hard this year as he has a .556 average (10 for 18) against the Nationals. Hoskins has some of the best power in the game and has a double and HR against Roark in 8 career AB’s against the right-hander.
Rounding out the lineup tonight will be a value pick in Jackie Bradley Jr (OF) of the Boston Red Sox and David Fletcher (SS) of the Los Angeles Angels. Bradley Jr. has been looking much more comfortable at the plate as of late and although he only has 5 HR’s on the season but has plenty of power to hit them out of Fenway. Bradley Jr. has a .421 average over the past week and has been great against the Angels this season, posting a .444 average with 2 HR’s against Los Angeles. We’ll have to make sure that David Fletcher is playing tonight but I think he’ll be in the lineup against the LHP Brian Johnson of Red Sox tonight. Fletcher has a .304 average in 23 AB’s since being called up and I think he can do some damage as he posted a solid .350 average with 6 HR’s and 7 SB’s down at Triple-A this season.
