Slate Summary

  • Our MLB Projections continue to crush and we will look to start the week the same way. We already have 2 games that have been PPD from weather concerns, leaving us with 7 games on the slate. My favorite team to target in cash and GPP contests are the Phillies. Harper, Schwarber and Hoskins are must plays for me and will be locking all 3 in. As for value, you can’t go wrong with Tellez batting 5th for 2.4k. Another value play and also currently in my core play is pitcher Eric Lauer for the Brewers. For 7.1k, he provides tremendous value and could easily end up with the most fps out of all the pitchers tonight. If you want to spend up on the mound, I really like Shane McClanahan or Sean Manaea. However, watch out for the weather for the Rays pitcher as you want to definitely monitor this.


  • Bryce Harper (PHI) (OF) – $4,200
  • Kyle Schwarber (PHI) (OF/1B) – $3,500
  • Rhys Hoskins (PHI) (1B) – $3,900
  • Eric Lauer (MIL) (P) – $7,100


  • Eric Lauer (MIL) (P) – $7,100
  • Rowdy Tellez (MIL) (1B) – $2,400
