P- Jose Quintana (vs. Oakland A’s): $9,900. Unfortunately for Quintana, his team doesn’t give him much run support, which doesn’t lead to a lot of wins. Of course that isn’t great for DraftKings scoring, but he has still been dominant on the mound. He has made six straight quality starts, which is obviously a great sign for Sunday. In 68 career at bats against Quintana, the A’s lineup is batting .162, with 21 strikeouts, and a .239 OBP.
P- Julio Urias (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $5,600. This is a high risk, high reward pick for Saturday. If you are looking for a safer pick, take a look at someone like Ervin Santana (more expensive option) or Matt Garza (cheaper option). Cincinnati’s offense has struggled against left-handed pitching this year (ranked 26th in OPS, 26th in slugging, 30th in OBP, and 28th in batting average). Their offense has also struggled over the last seven days. If Urias can put up six or seven innings of work, his strikeout potential could make for a huge game in daily fantasy.
C- Jason Castro (vs. Yovani Gallardo): $3,600. In 21 career at bats against Gallardo, Castro is batting .381, with three extra base hits, one home run, and a .480 OBP.
1B- David Ortiz (vs. Justin Verlander): $4,700. In 32 career at bats against Verlander, Oritz is batting .344, with two home runs, six extra base hits, and a .417 OBP. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .414, with three home runs, and a .553 OBP.
2B- Robinson Cano (vs. Matt Garza): $5,200. In 32 career at bats against Garza, Cano is batting .375, with five extra base hits, two home runs, and a .412 OBP.
3B- Alex Bregman (vs. Yovani Gallardo): $4,400. Bregman has been a huge asset in daily fantasy ever since he was moved up in Houston’s lineup. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .326, with two home runs, and a .375 OBP.
SS- Manny Machado (vs. Dallas Keuchel): $4,600. Keuchel has struggled all season long and he is coming off a rough start. Machado should have a favorable matchup as he faces off against a left-handed pitcher.
OF- Jeff Francoeur (vs. Gio Gonzalez): $3,100. In 28 career at bats against Gonzalez, Francoeur is batting .393, with four extra base hits, one home runs, .393 OBP and a .607 slugging percentage. He hasn’t been playing much recently, so keep an eye out on whether or not he starts.
OF- Travis Jankowski (vs. Braden Shipley): $3,900. Shipley has been very inconsistent this season. If Jankowski can get on base, there is a very good chance he steals a few bases. Over the last 10 games, he is batting .263 with a .333 OBP.
OF- George Springer (vs. Yovani Gallardo): $5,000. Springer has been on fire recently. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .378, with two home runs, .510 OBP, and a .676 slugging percentage. Gallardo is coming off a start where he walked five batters and gave up a big home run, so this could be good news for Springer.
