C – Gary Sanchez (NYY) (FanDuel: $3,600 / DraftKings: $4,500) – Sanchez will return from his suspension tonight and returns to a good matchup against left-hander Martin Perez who has allowed 1.20 HR/9 to righties this season.

1B – Mike Napoli (TEX) (FanDuel: $2,900 / DraftKings: $3,600) – Napoli has had a lot of success against Masahiro Tanaka going 7-for-14 with three doubles and a pair of long balls in his career.

2B – Robinson Cano (SEA) (FanDuel: $3,500 / DraftKings: $4,600) – Cano has 10 hits over his last five games including a pair of home runs. He is batting .333 with two doubles and three homers off Ricky Nolasco in 24 career at-bats.

mlb fanduel and draftkings lineup 9/8SS – Carlos Correa (HOU) (FanDuel: $3,400 / DraftKings: $4,700) – I’m going to keep rostering Correa at his reduced salary (on FD). He will face Jharel Cotton who has allowed 2.06 HR/9 to righties at home this season.

3B – Jake Lamb (ARI) (FanDuel: $3,000 / DraftKings: $4,600) – Lamb is another hitter that I will continue to roster (on FD) while his salary is depressed. He has been ice cold at the plate but still has a .282 ISO at home against righties this season.

OF – Nelson Cruz (SEA) (FanDuel: $3,900 / DraftKings: $4,000) – Cruz has destroyed Ricky Nolasco over his career going 11-for-25 with three doubles and four home runs.

OF – Mookie Betts (BOS) (FanDuel: $4,200 / DraftKings: $4,800) – I guess this is turning into a BvP lineup. Betts has also had good fortune against opposing pitcher Chris Archer, batting .379 with three home runs in 29 career at-bats.

OF – Matt Kemp (ATL) (FanDuel: $2,700 / DraftKings: $3,500) – Kemp has homered in three of his last five games and is 6-for-9 with a homer off Jose Urena in his career.

Longshot – Matt Davidson (CHW) (FanDuel: $2,500 / DraftKings: $3,300) – Davidson has a .231 ISO at home versus lefties and will face southpaw Matt Moore who has allowed 1.24 HR/9 to righties this season.

Cheap Pitching options
FanDuel – Marcus Stroman ($8,200), Lucas Giolito ($7,700)

Growing up, I was always intrigued with stats, from the back of baseball, football and basketball cards to playing dice rolling simulation games, while tracking the stats for the players on my team. My fantasy sports obsession began in college running fantasy football leagues with friends and has expanded into playing in both fantasy baseball and fantasy basketball leagues, and most recently Daily Fantasy Sports. I consider myself a “stats guy” by nature and lean on data to back up my advice and analysis of strategy techniques and player evaluations. That said, I have also always felt that sometimes you must go with a gut instinct based on things you have seen watching players play, even when the numbers don’t back it up. I feel that it is this mix of analysis that leads to the most successful formula when competing in fantasy sports.
