My maiden voyage of the DFS playbook has arrived. I will be locking down the Tuesday and Thursday slate going forward and am very excited about the opportunity to continue to help all of you achieve DFS greatness.
Tonight, I am going sticking to my usual game plan of paying for the pitchers and have a guy in there in Madison Bumgarner that you could see lightly owned tonight as most will want to avoid that Oakland Lineup. I am not afraid of the A's tonight.
There are not many top notch options to like at the catcher and shortstop position so value plays are the target there. This will allow you to fit in a few real high end bats as a result. My top plays of the day are the value of Matt Adams and the power of Giancarlo Stanton.Both of which should frequent your lineups tonight.
There is one main theme in tonight's picks as well in that you will see a ton of guys who crush the left handed pitchers. There are a few in the playbook that maybe platooned out like Lucas, Ross if in the lineup , Medica and possibly Gomes so it is important to not use too many of them who may fall into the situation when constructing your lineup.
