I am not having the best of weeks in fantasy, I’m hardly playing any $ as the match ups are not as clear cut as I would like. So I’m just taking chances trying to hope that the game’s best players do what we know they can.
Half of the time it works, and the other half doesn’t. But in this scenario you need 8 or 9 of your 10 to have a good game.
Last Night’s Stat’s
Contests Played: 2
Total Stake: $1.25
Paid places: 0
Profit: – $1.25
P Madison Bumgarner (SF) $12,900
Had his worst game of the season his last start, his ownership percentage could go down but he’s always worth playing in one team.
P Jerad Eickhoff (PHI) $8,600
5 scoreless innings, 2 Hits and only 1 K against the Braves but today he’s in the pitchers paradise of Petco.
C Jonathan Lucroy (TEX) $4,000
3 HR’s in 4 games with his new team, those 3 over last 2 days, pick and hope the streak keeps on going.
1B Albert Pujols (LAA) $4,100
Once the most feared hitter in baseball, he is only 3 for 16 against Paxton, however those 3 hits are 2 HR’s & a double.
2B Adam Frazier (PIT) $2,900
The rookie is cheap and he should score some points in today’s game.
3B Kris Bryant (CHC) $4,600
Hasn’t had a HR since July 27th; however the Cubs have won 9 of their last 10 games.
SS Andrelton Simmons (LAA) $2,900
Another right handed Angel and one of 3 players in my team under $3000 to accommodate Mad Bum
OF Andrew Benintendi (BOS) $2,800
He will not start against Left handed pitching, He’s looking for his first career HR and on this Red Sox teams he’ll get opportunities with men on base.
OF Melky Cabrera (CWS) $3,600
It’s been a couple of weeks since Cabrera had a HR; however I feel he has a chance at being the main threat for the White Sox today.
OF Hyun Soo Kim (BAL) $3,500
Like Benintendi he won’t play against LHP, He’s hitting .355 this year against righties and one starts on the hill today.
Remaining Budget $100
Make sure to check line-ups and I would just play a team similar to this one and enjoy your weekend. Life is too short to sit at home and stare at multiple screens when there’s B-B-Q’s to be had and hot ladies sunbathing next to pools.
