Slate Summary

  • We have a giant 13 game slate on both sites so let’s dive in right away with my favorite core play, Max Scherzer for 10.7k. After 2 underperforming games, I can see Max bouncing back against the Mariners. Their confirmed lineup isn’t strong and although there are a ton of pitchers to pick from today, I just really like the matchup here as the Mariners have the lowest implied team total. Mad Max has a great chance to have a monster game and the NYM should provide him with some run support.
  • Salvador Perez at 3.3k batting in the 3 hole is by far my go-to bat on both sites. I can’t fade Coors in cash games making the KC royals my priority team to target. Sticking with the same team, I like Benintendi batting 2nd for his price tag giving you a nice stack.
  • If you want to fade Coors, especially in GPP, the Tigers bats are popping due to their extremely cheap price. Schoop, Grossman Canderlario and even Baez all provide tremendous value allowing you to be different with your pitchers.


  • Max Scherzer (NYM) (P) – $10,700
  • Salvador Perez (KC) (C) – $3,300
  • Andrew Benintendi (KC) (OF) – $3,000


  • Jonathan Schoop (DET) (2B/1B) – $2,100
  • Cooper Hummel (ARI) (OF) – $2,300
  • Robbie Grossman (DET) (OF) – $2,500
  • Jerimer Canderlario (DET) (1B/3B) – $2,300
