Slate Summary

  • Since of 8 games, DK has 2 double header games on this slate but I don’t have any ownership for cash games. My eyes are on the Yankees and Giants today.
  • To kick things off, I will be locking in Aaron Judge for 6.1k. He has had 2 down games as of late but I can see him have a bounce back game against the Orioles. Watkins has an ERA over 5 and has struggled this season and will be thrown at a team that is swinging the bat really well.
  • Pitching is ugly today but one guy who stands out and is a lock for me is Jose Berrios. The Mariners looked lost against Kikuchi and should have a harder time with Berrios. He is cheap enough to be a viable play in cash games.
  • It’s hard to imagine Belt going 0-5 again at Coors. For 4.5k, he is a lock for me against Khul.
  • Crawford is 0 for his last 10 AB. I like his price but wish he was batting higher in the order. That being said, there’s no better place to be batting to break out of a slump like Coors so I don’t mind this play. Not a lock but a solid core option.


  • Aaron Judge (NYY) (OF) – $6,100
  • Jose Berrios (TOR) (P) – $7,800
  • Brandon Belt (SF) (1B) – $4,500
  • Brandon Crawford (SF) (SS) – $4,000


  • Tommy La Stella (SF) (2B) – $2,100
  • Mike Yastrzemski (SF) (OF) – $3,300


  • SF
  • NYY
  • LAA
