Update (2:20 PM) - Had to make some in-game adjustments Devers isn't getting the start today for the Red Sox. Image is updated below. Good Luck!
I will be playing the “main” slate tonight but decided to put out another “afternoon only” for MLB FanDuel today. Our "Afternoon Only" team yesterday didn't do anything special, however, we we're able to cash in on our 50/50's with our 104.10-point performance.
Keeping this short and sweet.
Decided to go with Jakob Junis to save same salary to pay up for our bats. Junis can give up some HR's, however, he has an outstanding slider that can get him some K's and you have to like the match-up against the Tigers. The weather looks like it's going to be pretty cold so I think that will help Junis who outside a rough 6th inning agianst the White Sox in his first start of the season, looked pretty solid.
We have a 3-man stack of New York Yankees in Greg Bird, Gleyber Torres, and Aaron Judge in their good match-up against Alex Cobb of the Baltimore Orioles. Cobb is coming off one of his worst years in the Majors last season as he posted a 4.90 ERA while giving up 24 HR's in 28 starts. The weather will be perfect for some offense today at Camden Yards and I expect the Yankees bats to wake up a bit this afternoon.
We're going with a 2-man stack of Rafael Devers & JD Martinez agianst Oakland's Brett Anderson.
Shortstop is a week position this afternoon, but I don't mind taking a change with Amed Rosario agianst Stephen Strasburg. Rosario might only be hitting .250 so far this season, however, he has collected at least 1 hit in every game this season and the former top-prospect of the Mets is starting to look more comfortable at the plate. Rosario is 2 for 5 agianst Strasburg in his career and certianly has some speed to get us a SB if he can get on the base.
I expect Eduardo Rodriguez to have a better game today, but you have to like some of the value the A's have today. I'm rostering Mark Canha just as he has HR-upside and is very affordable.
As I want some run support for Junis, I'm hoping that Soler can due some damage out of the clean-up spot for the Royals!
As always, I will make any necessary updates due to confirmed lineups, weather, etc. I will do my best to update the post but if it’s a last-second update, it’s easier for me to post that with an image on Twitter (@BrettCU05).
