With that being said, let’s dive into today’s slate…
This is a big series between Tampa anf Baltimore with big implications on who will be winning the division. Glasnow is rocking a 33% strike out rate against this current Baltimore team. Tyler does give up some hard contact but we should expect him to come out slinging and getting batters out. Glasnow also comes with 10+ strike out upside and even at a 10.8k salary is a very strong play. Averaging around 23 DK fantasy points per game with a ceiling of around 40-45 is exactly the kind of play you want at pitcher.
Going right back to Burnes like we did last week. The Nationals aren’t the easiest matchup but by far not the hardest. They don’t strike out a ton but with an elite arm like Burnes, I tend to push it off. We are talking about a guy with A 33% hard contact rate along with a strike out rate of 25% and an xBA of just .225! This guy has beenhaving a fantastic year and looks good today. I don’t think it’ll be a secret as he should be 25-35% owned but we can get different with out bats.
We have an interesting slate here but Spencer is looking like a strong play. With 8 hits in his last 6 games (including a homerun) it’s easy to see why. Tigers are favored to win with 10 MPH winds blowing out against The Angels. Two of Tyler Anderson’s top thrown pithes are the 4 seamer and the cutter. Both are ones that Spencer has found a lot of success with this year and should be able to create offense tonight. Torkelson is sporting hard contact rate of 52% along iwth getting walked 11%. I like his odds to get on base and create more offense here!
My favorite stack for today is going to be The Cubs against Davies! Other teams to stack that I am interested in are The Reds and The Tigers!
