Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Clayton Kershaw ($10,700 DK, $11,400 FD): The Padres are implied for the lowest runs on this slate, 3.13, and Kershaw is coming in with a slight discount over Cole as a home-favorite. Kershaw is also sporting a very impressive, extremely low 33.1% hard-contact %. 

Gerrit Cole ($11,300 DK, $11,700 FD): Cleveland is coming in with the second-lowest implied run total on the slate, 3.62, and Cole is sporting a 2.94 ERA along with a 2.69 xFIP to back up the validity behind his solid pitching this season.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Trent Thornton ($6800 DK, $6300 FD):  Baltimore has a .302 wOBA, 86 wRC+, and .166 ISO against RHP this season which is below league-average. Thornton also has an xFIP almost a half-point lower than his ERA suggesting he has been a little unlucky so far this season.

Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Tampa Rays: The Rays have a .325 wOBA, 105 wRC+, and .185 ISO against RHP this season, and their opponent Cashner has an average exit-velocity of almost 90 MPH as well as a 42.2 % hard contact % which suggests he is not fooling many batters and getting hit very hard.
