Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Gerrit Cole ($12,000 DK, $12,200 FD): Detroit has a horrendous .283 wOBA, 73 wRC+, and .151 ISO against RHP this season, and they are only implied for 2.10 runs this evening. Cole is expensive, yet extremely safe for Cash games. 

Mike Soroka ($10,000 DK, $9300 FD): The Marlins have been striking out at a very high rate against RHP this season and have also only managed to accrue a .283 wOBA, 75 wRC+, and .124 ISO against RHP as well. Soroka could be the top option on the board given his discount compared to Cole.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Miles Mikolas ($7200 DK, $6800 FD): Colorado hasn’t been very great against RHP this season with an 84 wRC+ as well as an even more worrisome 74 wRC+ on the road. Mikolas has an xFIP of 4.26 to go with his ERA of 4.30 which shows his ERA is a perfect representation of his mediocre pitching thus far. Given the matchup and the price-point I don’t mind Mikolas with Cole in Cash games. 

Aaron Civale ($6200 DK, $8500 FD): This is more of a DK target than FD given the price differential, however the Mets have been a little worse against RHP than LHP and with expensive studs like Cole and Soroka available, we are going to need a somewhat cheaper option to pair with them and keep our SP budget under/around 20K.

Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Atlanta Braves: The Braves matchup with Sandy Alcantara tonight who has an ERA of 4.35 with an xFIP of 5.64 which suggests regression is on the way. As of now, Braves are also implied for the most runs on the slate with 6.06.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

Washington Nationals:The Nats offense has been on a roll lately and also have great numbers against LHP this season with a .346 wOBA, 109 wRC+, and .193 ISO. Brault also has a 4.06 ERA to go with a 5.11 xFIP which suggest regression.
