Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Domingo German ($10,000 DK, $9600 FD): The Yankees are implied for the most runs, and German accrued 7 innings with 8 K’s in his last home-start against Baltimore earlier this year. He will be given plenty of run-support and is my top Cash-SP option on the board. 

Matthew Boyd ($10,300 DK, $10,400 FD): Over the last two weeks Seattle has accrued a .267 wOBA, 67 wRC+, and .141 ISO as they look horrendous out there. Boyd also has a 3.52 xFIP to go with his 4.16 ERA meaning he’s been pitching more effectively than his earned run average would indicate.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Dustin May ($7500 DK, $5800 FD): One of the top Cash SP options tonight as May gets the nod over Kershaw. Miami is implied for the least total runs, 3.00, and have only managed a .282 wOBA, 76 wRC+, and .124 ISO against RHP this season. Must-play for Cash on FD. 

Max Fried ($6700 DK, $8400 FD): This is a little GPP as the Mets have very solid numbers against LHP this season, however Fried pitched very well at home against them earlier on, and has an xFIP of 3.40 to go with his 4.11 ERA which suggests he has been pitching better than his ERA would indicate.

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

New York Yankees: Not much to say here, Baltimore has the worst bullpen in baseball and consistently gets beaten up by opposing offenses night in and night out. Make sure Torres is in your NYY stack.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

St. Louis Cardinals: Glenn Sparkman is horrendous and has a 5.57 xFIP to go with his 5.71 ERA which suggests his ERA is absolutely on-point as an indicator for how awful he has been thus far.
