Fantasy Baseball Daily League Sleepers, Value Plays, & MLB Daily Lineup Decisions for Sat. Aug. 14th

by MichaelPichan (@FantasyNomad)

P Jarrod Parker ($9,200, 9.2% of cap at Draft Kings- Play Now): Parker held the Astros to one earned run (two unearned) over seven innings back on July 23rd in Houston. Tonight's game is in pitcher friendly confines of Oakland Coliseum and the Astros are hitting under .200 versus right-handed pitchers and got their first win in 12 games last night, so look for the A's, who blew a chance to tie the Rangers for the AL West lead, to be ready for tonight's matchup.

OF Matt Joyce Rays ($8,300, 8.3% of cap at Fan Throwdown- Play Now): Joyce crushes RHP and he has made owners Re-Joyce  of late hitting .385 over last sevens days and is facing Homer Harang Homer (18% HR/FB Rate on the road).

1B James Loney Rays ($5,750, 5.6% of cap Draft Day - Play Now ): If you don't want to spend on David Oritiz, then consider Loney as he should have a bunch of RBI opportunities tonight against Mariners Aaron Harang.

2B Mark Ellis Dodgers ($4,900, 9.8% of cap Draft Kings- Play Now): Ellis has good BvP numbers versus Dillion Gee and is hitting .455 over his last five games.

SS Yunel Escobar Rays ($6,735, 6.7% of cap at Draft Street - Play Now): is batting sixth, is hitting .300 over his last five games, and has favorable matchup versus M's Aaron Harang.

3B Josh Donaldson Athletics ($8,100, 8.0% of cap Fan Throwdown- Play Now): Donaldson went 3-for-3 with a double the last time he faced Jarred Cosart and is hitting .467 over last four games. I like Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks as well.

C Stephen Vogt Athletics ($2,400, 7.2% of cap at Fan Duel- Play Now): Vogt is 8-for-20 (.400 avg) over last 7 games, 6 starts, and at least one hit those six starts.

Teams to stack: Boston, Rays, Braves, or A's
Pichan's Pick: The over of 8.5 in the Red Sox@Blue Jays game, both starters have an ERA over 4.30 and the game is in Rogers Center.
