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

Slate Summary

  • We have ourselves a nice 8 game slate with no weather concerns. I will be targeting NYY and SF today in both formats.
  • It might be hard to roster Belt again after going 0-5 at Coors last night where his team scored 7 runs. To make matters worse, he was my cover boy but in DFS, you need a short term memory and I will be locking him in again for 3.7k. It’s hard to imagine him going 0-5 again and grades out as a solid play.
  • Belt and Judge are my two favorite plays on both sites. The Yankees and Giants are the only teams to have a projected ITT of 5+. Judge is in a prime spot to crush the ball and for 4.5k, this is an easy play for me.


  • Brandon Belt (SF) (1B) – $3,700
  • Aaron Judge (NYY) (OF) – $4,500


  • Joey Gallo (NYY) (OF) – $2,600
  • Marcus Semien (TEX) (2B/SS) – $2,500
  • James Kaprielian (OAK) (P) – $6,400


  • NYY
  • SF
