Slate Summary

  • For both sites, I am all in on the Brewers and Nationals today. Starting off with my favorite play, Juan Soto for 5k. I don’t have him as a core play on FD but I was debating on it all day long. I still have him in both my cash game builds and will have shares of him in GPP. Yelich also grades out as a solid option today for 4.2k and the Brewers are the first time you should look at when building out your lineups on both formats. On the mound, no other pitcher I am thinking of but Peralta and Giolito. If you want to be contrarian in GPP, you can definitely fade to be different. Since all 4 are premium priced, the best value play comes from the Twins in Jose Miranda batting 5th. There are many ways to attack this decent 7 game slate but this is how I will be starting my builds.


  • Juan Soto (WSH) (OF) – $5,000
  • Freddy Peralta (MIL) (P) – $8,900
  • Lucas Giolito (CWS) (P) – $9,500
  • Christian Yelich (MIL) (OF) – $4,200
  • Jose Miranda (MIN) (3B) – $2,000
