JDM MLB Notes
Hey guys! JDM back again to help you navigate thru this 14 game slate on Fanduel. In addition, I would love to see/hear about the lineups everybody made and cashed so let me know on Twitter @DFS_JDM also give @Rotodojo a shout out if we help you cash. Again, as yesterday I will give you guys my three favorite pitchers and my hitter’s pool by position along with favorite stacks.
Zack Greinke ($9,700) vs Colorado Rockies
Rockies – 3.19 IRT / 22.1% K rate / Team wOBA 0.322 / Team ISO 0.179
Zack Greinke stats – 24.2% K rate / 3.82 XFIP / 10.2% swinging strike rate
Greinke gets his Astros debut tonight ever since the big blockbuster trade seconds before the trade deadline. Greinke gets to face a familiar foe in the Rockies who he has pitched against four times already this season. In one of those starts he was roughed up a bit but the other three were good outings, with one of them being a 7 inning no runs and 9 K’s. With the Astros offense behind him, Greinke should be in for a stellar second half of the season. In addition, Greinke is below 10K on FD, which I do not think we will see anymore going forward. I think Greinke slightly over the next guy.
Zack Wheeler ($10,700) vs Miami Marlins
Marlins – 3.03 IRT / 23.8% K rate / Team wOBA 0.290 / Team ISO 0.129
Zack Wheeler stats – 26.0% K rate / 3.85 XFIP / 14.0% swinging strike rate
Wheeler is definitely the other top option tonight at pitcher. He is $1,000 more than Greinke so if you can find enough value then I cannot argue Wheeler over Greinke. Wheeler does get the better matchup in terms of a weak Marlins offense compared to the Rockies. The Mets have been on fire as well for the past couple of weeks. The Mets also come into this slate as the biggest favorite at -220. Wheeler and Greinke as top cash game plays just have to decide if you want the $1,000 savings for bats or not.
