Top-Tier Pitching Targets
Lance Lynn ($10,000 DK, $9300 FD): Over the past week Seattle has a below-average wOBA of .287, 81 wRC+, and.183 ISO. Lynn has an extremely low HR/FB rate of 8.9% keeping the ball well within the confines of the park. His ERA is 3.85 and his xFIP is 3.79 suggetsing regression shouldn’t be anything to worry about.
Chris Paddack (GPP) ($9000 DK, $7000 FD): It’s a plus-matchup for Paddack, however the Padres have been discussing internally whether or not to shut him down as it is his rookie season and he could be experiencing some arm-fatigue. For now call this a GPP-play for both sites but more enticing on FD given the price.
Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets
Alex Wood ($7900 DK, $ FD): Miami has managed a .290 wOBA, 79 wRC+, and .135 ISO against LHP this season. Wood also has a woeful ERA of 6.07 however an xFIP of 4.61 which suggests some positive starts are on the way and that he may have been a bit unlucky thus far in the season.
Top-Tier Offensive Stack
Pittsburgh Pirates: We know by now to always look to Coors, especially on a small slate. You can honestly attack this matchup from either offensive side, however I prefer the Pirates as they have racked up a .324 wOBA, 99 wRC+, and .167 ISO against RHP this season, and are implied for just under 7-runs.
Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack
Texas Rangers: The average exit-velocity for the once-great Felix Hernandez is 95.9 mph at the moment. This means he is definitely not fooling anybody and although it isn’t the most drastically large sample size, Felix simply is a shadow of his former self. The Rangers also perform very well at home with a .335 wOBA, 94 wRC+, and .202 ISO.
Home Run Calls
Bryan Reynolds, Danny Santana
