MLB GPP Plays: Tuesday

Tuesday, September 4, 2018


This article looks to uncover some underrated MLB DFS Tournament Options for large-field contests. The following write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, meaning injury information, weather, and lineup cards could alter the fantasy landscape. Checking starting lineups and scanning our MLB Headlines Feed should keep you in the loop.

 

 

Keep in mind that we are looking towards the evening slate starting at 7:05 ET.

 

 

 

PITCHER

 

Wade LeBlanc – Seattle (vs Baltimore)

 

If you dig deeper in this slate, you’ll uncover Wade LeBlanc as an economical fantasy pitcher to stack around. LeBlanc has posted some good outings lately, allowing just one earned run through 13 innings with 10 strikeouts combined at Arizona and Oakland. He should be able to keep the momentum while starting at home vs a bottom-ten Baltimore offense. You have to love LeBlanc’s cheap $6800 salary on FanDuel.

 

 

 

Editor’s Note: Compete in a live fantasy baseball snake draft right now! Drafts take as little as 2 minutes to complete and last just one night. For a limited time, DRAFT is giving Rotoworld readers a FREE entry into a real money draft and a Money-Back Guarantee up to $100! Here's the link. 

 

 

 

CATCHER / FIRST BASE

 

C.J. Cron – Tampa Bay (at Toronto)

 

I’m really liking a Tampa stack tonight. They’ll see a nice park boost in Toronto while facing Jays LHP Ryan Borucki and his .350 wOBA split vs right-handed bats. Cron and Pham are the two best prospects to take advantage of this situation, but keep an eye on Matt Duffy and Carlos Gomez as well. Cron has showcased solid power upside this entire season, and he’s currently seeing the ball well after tallying six hits, two doubles, and two homers over his past three starts.

 

 

 

SECOND BASE

 

Jose Altuve – Houston (vs Minnesota)

 

If you look towards Wade LeBlanc at pitcher, you’ll have some cash to spend at your other positions. That frees you to take a chance on expensive picks like Jose Altuve – who others will probably pass-up due to cost. Minnesota is letting their bullpen take care of the pitching duties tonight. They tried that strategy on Saturday, yielding 18 runs at Texas as a result. There’s a good chance Houston could rack up plenty of runs in this one, and a breakout performance from Altuve seems likely.

 

 

 

THIRD BASE

 

Johan Camargo – Atlanta (vs Boston)

 

Some people may not realize that Rick Porcello has struggled while allowing 20 earned runs over his past five starts. He also owns a vulnerable .340 wOBA split vs left-handed bats. There’s a decent chance this capable Atlanta offense will extend those concerns, and Johan Camargo is a sneaky-good pick within that. Camargo is on fire with 10 hits and two homers over his past six games, yet the cost remains reasonable with a $3100 salary on FanDuel.

 

 

 

SHORTSTOP

 

Tim Anderson – Chicago White Sox (vs Detroit)

 

I’m always looking towards Tim Anderson’s speed and power combination whenever it makes. That’s the case tonight, as Anderson will step into a great righty/lefty matchup against Detroit LHP Francisco Liriano and his .380 wOBA split vs right-handed bats. Liriano has allowed four earned runs in each of his past three games, not helping his ERA while only pitching 11.1 total innings through that stretch. Anderson makes for an excellent pick through all formats in this draw, and he checks in with a comfortable $3000 salary on FanDuel to boot.

 

 

 

OUTFIELD

 

Nick Markakis – Atlanta (vs Boston)

 

Markakis follows the same rationale as teammate Johan Camargo, as we are looking to take advantage or Boston RHP Rick Porcello’s recent inconsistencies (and .340 wOBA split vs left-handed bats). Markakis has been “just okay” in recent games, which will likely keep the ownership rate very tame despite the present opportunity.

 

 

Hunter Renfroe – San Diego (at Arizona)

 

Renfroe was in yesterday’s GPP article, and I’m looking towards him tonight with similar rationale. The San Diego outfielder has been on a power-binge as of late, and the park shift to Arizona could help him extend that. Diamondbacks’ LHP Robbie Ray hasn’t nearly been as dominant this season, holding a 4.55 ERA while running into problems at home.
