Robbie Ray is the high-end chalk on today’s slate. I don’t mind eating some ownership and prioritizing Ray. The other chalk options are a little bit thin. Heaney and Morton have had some shaky starts so they are good tournament fades. Marcus Stroman intrigues me as a low-owned option for sub 8k.

First Base / C

Max Muncy is the best first-base play today. I like the Dodgers and they’re a priority stack for me today. Bobby Dalbec can be used as a salary saver for an interesting gpp stack in the Red Sox. Matt Olson is low-owned and I like him as a target.

Second Base

My favorite second basemen is actually looking like he’s going to be low-owned on today’s slate. Kike Hernandez versus a lefty will always be a priority play for me. Montgomery has struggled and I want to take advantage of it.

Third Base

Future Met Kris Bryant gets a lefty today and could be one of his last ABs as a Cub. I always like targetting Bryant in a platoon matchup. Justin Turner is a nice part of my Dodgers stack as well.


Fernando Tatis is expensive but as always is an elite play. Gavin Lux is my favorite play for my high end Dodgers stack. I am fine with playing Tatis as a one – off.


In the outfield, I am going to continue to hype up the Dodgers. Bellinger and Betts are the high-end options but Pollock could be a low-owned Dodgers piece. Winker is an elite one-off in the outfield for the Reds. Tommy Pham and Tatis is a fun mini-stack.
