Use the promo code “RONDO” to get 50% off the weekly DFS Crunch plan. New members only.

Slate Summary

  • A massive 12 game slate and a lot of great plays to pick from. I have 3 plays I really like and more great options from the Phillies.
  • I will be locking in Luis Garcia for 9.5k against the Royals today. Not only do they have the lowest ITT, their lineup have already been confirmed and I like the overall matchup here for Garcia. Great price and one of the best options today.
  • My SP2 will be Yusei Kikuchi and although it can be scary rostering Kikuchi, he faces off against the worst team in the bigs. I will roster Kikuchi because of his price at 7.8k and the very high potential to pick up the win. Hopefully he goes 6 innings as well for the QS.
  • J Ram is a lock for me on both sites. Building around the elite third baseman.


  • Luis Garcia (HOU) (P) – $9,500
  • Yusei Kikuchi (TOR) (P) – $7,800
  • Jose Ramirez (CLE) (3B) – $4,900
