Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Brandon Woodruff ($9300 DK, $9300 FD): The Padres have been lower of the league offensively at-home with a .290 wOBA, 81 wRC+, and .166 ISO and Woodruff gets a bump with park-factor. Woodruff also has an xFIP of 3.50 which is lower than his 3.87 ERA suggesting he is pitching even more efficiently. Finally, his hard-hit rate is a very impressive 30.1%. 

Jack Flaherty ($8700 DK, $8000 FD): Miami has a .283 wOBA, 75 wRC+, and .110 ISO agasint RHP so far this year. Matchup bump for Flaherty, as well as an xFIP of 4.00 which is lower than his ERA of 4.28 supporting his stats improving. 

Other options to consider:

Cole Hamels, Justin Verlander

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Brett Anderson ($6200 DK, $7000 FD): Baltimore is only implied for 3.66 runs, while Oakland is implied for 5.32. Anderson has a good chance at the win-bonus and is cheap enough to fit in almost any offensive stack on the slate. 

Other options to consider:

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

LA Angels: The Angels definitely won’t be the most popular offensive stack on the slate however they’ve racked up a .336 wOBA, 114 wRC+, and .186 ISO against RHP and face off with Stroman tonight. Stroman has an ERA of 3.18 however an xFIP of 4.13 which suggest regression is also on the way.

Cleveland is also implied for the highest total runs on the slate, supporting their offense in both Cash and GPP formats.
