Fantasy Baseball: Top daily league plays for Friday

Fantasy Baseball: Top daily league plays for Friday


Max Scherzer-SP-WAS vs NYM- $12000- The ace is coming off an injured thumb. I don't blame you if you went with the Dark Knight tonight. But I love him matchup. He has a 30% career K-Rate against the Mets and they are only hitting .210 against him.

Carlos Carrasco-SP-CLE vs. TOR- $7900- Carrasco dominated the Blue Jays the last time he faced them. He now has another shot and it's at home. He is a great deal at his current price if you want to pair him up with Scherzer or Harvey. Or, if you go another low-priced SP, you can load up on big bats.

Anthony DeSclafani-SP-CIN vs. ATL- $7700- Will the luck run out? His metrics say that he can sustain this success. He isn't home, but that's actually a good thing. I like him against a mediocre Brave's lineup.


Evan Gattis-C-HOU - $3900- Gattis is hitting .343 vs. lefties and he is coming out of his season long slump. He is all or nothing. Expect some K's, but he has the potential to hit 2 HRs.

Andrew Susac-C-SF- $3000- Susac is carrying a .391 wOBA into tonight's matchup. Make sure he is getting the start over Posey! Posey can slide into 1B with Belt moving to the outfield.

First Basemen

Mike Napoli-1B-BOS- $3800- Napoli is hitting .300 with 4HRs vs. LHP.

Adrian Gonzalez-1B-LAD- $4600- Gonzo is a .303 career hitter against RHP.

Second Basemen

Jose Altuve-2B-HOU - $5000- He is a hitting machine. He is hitting .414 vs. lefties. Once he gets on, he can provide you with runs and steals.

Howie Kendrick-2B-LAD-$3900- Kendrick is 5 for 9 against Rubby De La Rosa with a HR.

Third Basemen

Evan Longoria-3B-TB-$4200- They are playing the Orioles in Tampa this weekend. Longoria has 6 HRs against Oriole starter, Tillman.

Adrian Beltre-3B-TEX- $4400- Beltre is hitting .351 against lefties in his career. Going up against Kazmir Friday night.


Jimmy Rollins-SS-LAD-$3600- Rollins has a wOBA of .342 and is looking to get into a groove. He had a few days off and it has cleared his head. He is hitting the ball hard. Possibility of a HR and stolen base tonight.

Hanley Ramirez-SS-BOS- $5000- Most expensive SS on DraftKings tonight. He is facing CC Sabathia, who has been getting roughed up all year.


Jason Heyward-OF-STL-$4000- Heyward has 2 HRs lifetime versus AJ Burnett.

Giancarlo Stanton-OF-MIA-$5600- Stanton is at home tonight. Marlin's Park has been good to him, allowing him to bat .310 lifetime. Always that chance for a 2-3 HR games, tonight is the night!

Starling Marte-OF-PIT-$4500- Marte is 8/18 versus Lance Lynn.

Corey Dickerson-OF-COL-$4500- I know Dickerson isn't playing at home, but he absolutely crushes right handers to the tune of .328 with 21 HR.

Jake Smolinksi-OF-TEX-$3000- He is coming into Friday's matchup with Kazmir with the highest wOBA of any outfielder at .436. Expect him to get on tonight.

Curtis Granderson-OF-NYM-$3500- Granderson is 4 for 14 versus Mad Max with a HR. Runs will be a premium in this game, and Granderson can provide all the runs that Harvey needs.
