MLB DFS 8/25/22 – OwnersBox Lightning Lineups Locks

What’s up everyone! We are super excited for the new format now available from our newest partners, OwnersBox Fantasy. This new format is called “Lightning Lineups” and I wrote an article detailing how to win at this format here. They call it the most electric way to play fantasy sports. Essentially, you are presented lineups with sets of three players, and you simply have to choose the lineup that ends up scoring the most points. You have the option to spin for new sets of players as many times as you want, and the more sets of lineups you go against the higher your payout will be. In this daily article, I will be detailing the teams and players I’m targeting. Let’s get to the plays…

Top Players

Kyle Schwarber- Our projections loved Schwarber and the Phillies last night, and we can go right back to the well on Thursday against Justin Dunn. For whatever reason, the Reds wanted Dunn in the Jesse Winker trade, but he is once again underwhelming. He’s never delivered on his prospect hype at the major league level, and in a small-sample this season he has been terrible. He’s allowing a .361 wOBA and .200 ISO to left-handed batters. Schwarber has been one of the best power hitters in baseball this season — and got a bit unlucky last night smoking a ball right at the right-fielder. He once again has the highest ceiling on the slate and he’s our top projected batter tonight.

Yordan Alvarez- If you’re looking for a high ceiling player that’s not on the Phillies, look no further than Yordan Alvarez against Chris Archer. Alvarez is also one of the best left-handed hitters in baseball, and Archer has been known to allow a lot of power. Furthermore, he throws a ton of sliders to left-handed batters — a pitch that Alvarez crushes. He sports a massive .407 wOBA and .426 ISO against the pitch dating back to 2019 — which is far and away the best numbers in this lineup. He projects pretty similarly to Schwarber tonight – making him one of the top overall plays on Thursday’s slate.

Dan Vogelbach- It’s a sneaky good spot for Dan Vogelbach, who we know has the slate-breaking power to help win us these contests. Ryan Feltner has given up a lot of homeruns this season — and is allowing over a .200 ISO to both sides of the plate. Vogy owns the highest ISO on the Mets against right-handed pitching at .269. Feltner doesn’t possess a deep pitch arsenal, so he should know what’s coming. Overall, he has some of the highest power upside in the entire league and is the exact type of player I like to target in high-power match-ups.
