Hey there my fantasy junkes, your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru has been off a few days working on the tanlines, but I’m ready to dive back into the deep end of DFS pool and soak up some cash.
We have eight games on the slate tonight, some high over/unders from the sharks in Vegas and it looks like a great night to spend on some big bats.
Here’s your dirty turbaned Guru’s team for Thursday 5/29. Good luck, cheers.
All values are based on DraftKings pricing.
SP 1 – Jamie Garcia, $9,200: We’re going cheap on the pitching tonight and the price is right for Garcia who faces Giants team that is $truggling versus lefties this year.
SP 2 – Jake Peavy, $7,500: Ok, Peavy has been bad lately, but these Braves are 29th against right-handed pitching and $trikeout a lot.
C – Nick Hundley, $2,500: Hundley seems to be fitting in well since his trade to the O’s and I never $pend big on catcher.
1B – Chris Davis, $5,200: The donkey has five bomb$ over the his last 10 games and faces Brad Peacock and his 5.20 ERA tonight. Look for runs in this one. Paul Goldschmidt is another great option tonight.
2B – Kolten Wong, $3,700: Wong hits high in the order, has 10+ FPTS over his last five games and the pri$e be right. Daniel Murphy of the Mets is another slightly more expensive play tonight.
3B – Martin Prado, $3,900: The price is way too low for Prado who has been $moking hot lately. In his last four games, Prado has six hits, five runs, two homers and six RBI. Looking to spend on the hot corner? Grab David Wright against Daisy Buchanan who’s making just his second start on the year.
SS – Xander Bogaerts, $3,800: The X-Man is $winging big and is hitting.327 AVG with a .935 OPS against lefties this year. Another SS play I’m targeting tonight is Erick Aybar of the Angels.
OF 1 – Yasiel Puig, $5,600: As long as the ManBearPuig is in the lineup I’m playing him as he produce$ every night. Want to spend a little more? Look to Mike Trout who’s heating up and in a great spot tonight.
OF 2 – Nelson Cruz, $5,400: Cruz is one of the hottest bats in baseball right now with seven home run$ in the last 10 days. At roughly the same price Jose Bautista and Matt Holiday are a couple bats to target.
OF 3 – Jonny Gomes, $3,500: Alway$ love Jonny against a lefty at Fenway Park and he’s averaging 9+ FPTS over his last five games. Other cheap outfielders I like tonight are Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson and Kole Calhoun.
Good luck and remember to always check daily lineups and weather conditions.
