Will the Touts take the chance Mother Nature cooperates on a night three more Golden Tickets are on the line? Rain in Buffalo, Detroit and Atlanta could dampen scores.
Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis)
Pitcher: Yu Darvish – Yu Darvish is coming off the IL and will make his first start for the 2nd half of the season at Atlanta. It’s been raining here all day and more rain is scheduled for this evening, so please check the weather before deciding on any players for San Diego or Atlanta.
Hitter: Juan Soto – There has been no hotter player than Juan Soto since the all star break. He’s starting to deliver more like the 1st round draft pick many league managers drafted in 2021 fantasy baseball league drafts.
Zach Steinhorn (CreativeSports2, @zachsteinhorn)
Pitcher: German Marquez – Marquez is 4-0 with a 0.75 ERA and a 0.50 WHIP over his last five starts and he gets a favorable matchup against a Mariners team that ranks last in the majors in both AVG and OPS.
Hitter: Nelson Cruz – Cruz sports a 1.028 OPS versus lefties this season and has enjoyed great success against Dallas Keuchel throughout his career (.327/.406/.673 slash line with six homers in 55 at-bats).
Charlie Wiegert (CDM Sports, @GFFantasySports)
Pitcher: Wade Miley – Was good last few outing and opposed by Mets rookie Stock, Reds ready for revenge after last night’s debacle!
Hitter: Francisco Mejia – How about a $2800 catcher All he does is hit, and with Zunino out, he’ll get a chance!
Howard Bender (Fantasy Alarm, @RotobuzzGuy)
Pitcher: Luis Garcia – Sure is pricey, but good strikeout totals and this Cleveland offense is hot trash. No-hitter alert? If it can happen to any team, it’s Cleveland!
Hitter: Vladimir Guerrero Jr – Happy to pay up for one of the top hitters in the game, especially when he’s facing one of the worst pitchers in Garrett Richards. Even Zola probably hates Richards!
Phil Hertz (BaseballHQ, @prhz50)
Pitcher: Tarik Skubal – Like his matchup tonight
Hitter: Juan Soto – Another vote for the red hot Washington outfielder.
Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola)
Pitcher: Wade Miley – Wanted to pay for a dominant ace, but there aren’t any so will finesse with Miley and hope the bats come through big.
Hitter: Mitch Garver – Pretty much a free square at 3.6K batting second with platoon bump
