We were close on Wednesday with a rock star start from James Paxton who netted over 70 fantasy points — Unfortunately other pitchers like Aaron Nola and Luis Severino also went off… meaning there were a bunch of high scores.
The cash line was an unbelievable 155 which is the highest it’s been all season, and our lineup netted 143 points…with nothing from Nelson Cruz or David Duvall, who was a last minute pivot. I’m going to tackle the 8pm main slate on Fan Duel — I like fewer games, as these big slates can get a little crazy.
SP – R. Lopez CWS – value pick here with a favorable opposing pitching matchup at home. Just need 30 points and we’re good to go.
1B/C – J. Abreu CWS – Abreu mashes righties and has a great matchup in this one
2B – J. Peterson BAL – I like him at his low mid $2K price range, as he should get the start
3B – Zack Cozart LAA – The Angels draw Chris Tillman who serves up big fat grease balls. I’m expecting him to rocked by all Angels
SS – Xander Bogaerts BOS – I want to go Andrelton Simmons here, but he got pulled last night and I’m not sure what’s up
OF – Mike Trout LAA – Tillman is a human bomb server
OF – Mookie Betts – He’s so good, I love a Betts/Trout combo in this one
OF – D Palka CWS – if he plays he’ll get a spot in the middle of the order with a great matchup.
Util – M. Maldonado LAA – like I said, I’ll take any and all Angels regardless of price…
*** Double check line-ups and if someone is not playing, get an Angels player to replace.***
Good Luck Gamers!
