Kyle Seager- Seagar was NOT playing games last night. Seager is generally underrated and performances like these need to be kept in mind when creating DFS lineups. Seager had 4 hits, 2 doubles and a homer, with 3 runs.
Evan Longoria- Always a strange day when the Rays make the studs list. Longoria reached base 3 times in 4 plate appearances and took his two hits all the way out of the ballpark.
David Wright- All 3 studs today are eligible are third basemen! I hope you play on site that allows multi-position eligibility. Wright also swatted two homers.
Bartolo Colon- I want to go Hisashi Iwakuma in this spot, but Colon is just significantly cheaper and will honestly perform just as well. Iwakuma is going to strike out more batters, but Colon gets the much worse Mariners offense. Over the the 14 days, the Mariners are the 4th worst offense in baseball and have only hit 8 home runs. Colon is going to have no problem going deep into this game and most likely, picking up a W.
Tyler Chatwood- After seeing what Roy Oswalt was able to do in yet another Favre-ian resurgence versus the Nationals last night, I have few reservations about Chatwood. The Nats without Bryce Harper are not a good offense, only slightly better than the Mariners that I just recommended. Chatwood has a 2.33 ERA and 2.53 FIP. His main issue is walks, but luckily the Nationals aren’t all that adept at walking, with a team 7.2% BB rate.
Matt Wieters- Not so much about how well Wieters is playing (trust me, he isn’t), but about the matchup and pricing. Wieters has been cold and his price reflects that, but facing R.A Dickey is just what the doctor ordered. I’m a believer in this Orioles offense and if they rough Dickey up, Wieters should be included in the fun.
Chris Davis- Do I feel comfortable starting the major league leader in homers against a pitching giving up 1.35 HR/9? Yes, hypothetical question guy, I do.
Ben Zobrist- Zobrist will likely be towards the top of the lineup with Kelly Johnson on the shelf at the moment and the matchup versus David Phelps in one that I want to be a part of. Zobrist is a pretty cheap option with a high OBP versus righties (.426) that could rack up the runs if the Rays beat up on Phelps.
Miguel Cabrera- Don’t complain, just do it.
Adrian Beltre- If you aren’t spending on Miggy, I wouldn’t mind throwing Beltre out who is slugging .514 versus lefties and is facing Tyler Lyons and his 4.65 ERA.
Jean Segura- With Tulo and Evereth Cabrera sidelined, you’re either playing Segura or you’re completely punting shortstop. I’m not punting versus Tehran tonight.
Yasiel Puig- Running it back from yesterday, I defintely want Puig going against righties. His sample size is crazy small right now, but he is slugging .950 off of lefties. Go ahead and run with that sample.
