Not a bad weekend for us daily degenerates as we ca$hed in on three of four contests we entered increasing our bankroll and getting us one step closer to a winter of umbrella drinks in Cancun (or at least a couple weeks).
It’s a short stack this Monday night with only nine games on the docket. The pitching may not be sexy, but there’s some value here. Also, keep your eye on the Doppler as there’s a 60% chance of rain in Cincy and possible snow (!) in Milwaukee. Don’t let Mother Nature leave you out of the money.
Here’s the Dirty Turban roster we’re rolling with tonight 4/14.
Prices are based on Draftkings values
SP 1 – Jesse Chavez, OAK@LAA, $6,900 – The Angels may have dropped two touchdowns on the Mets Sunday, but the lineup is full of holes. Uncle Je$$e has 13 K’s in two games.
SP 2 – Jordan Lyles, COL@SD, $6,500 – Another value play here. Park factor matters with our fantasy plays and Petco Park in $unny San Diego is a pitchers best friend. Even a pitcher like Lyles.
C – Russel Martin, PIT@CIN, $4,800 – Pri$ey for a catcher, we know. However, Martin is hitting .357 with two homers vs. Homer Bailey.
1B – Joey Votto, CIN vs. PIT, $5,000 – It may be cold in the Steel City, but Votto is $tarting to heat up and averaging 10+ points in his last three games.
2B – Ben Zobrist, TB@BAL, $4,400 – The Guru’s must play of the day is Zobrist. Zoby is coming off a two homer game and hits .435 (10/23) with a double, a homer, three RBI and a walk against Wei-Yen Chen. Ca$h in.
3B – Evan Longoria, TB@BAL, $4,700 – We skimped on the big name arms today to $tack Rays against Chen. Will it work? My Magic 8-Ball says, “MONEY!”
SS – Jhonny Peralta, STL@MIL, $3,500 – Good pri$e for a guy hitting .400 off Garza. Watch out for the weather though.
OF 1 – Justin Upton, ATL@PHI, $5,800 – Upton is on fire averaging 20+ FPTS over his last four games. Let’$ buy in today.
OF 2 – Shin-Soo Choo, TEX vs. SEA, $4,900 – Choo had a tough weekend against Houston, but the hits, walks, steals and runs potential is too good to pa$$ up in a game Vegas has at 9 1/2.
OF 3 – Wil Myers, TB@BAL, $3,400 – Closing out our mini-stack of Rays is Myers. Myers has been struggling a bit, but we like the price in a game where runs will be $cored.
Take this roster to the bank and remember to always check daily lineups and weather conditions.
