Billy Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a triple, one RBI and a run scored during the Reds' 4-0 win over the Indians on Thursday. He was also caught stealing for the 17th time this season.
Hamilton has now hit safely in six of his last seven games with three multi-hit performances and is batting .271 on the season. Nice right? Not to mention the 43 steals too. But while those numbers seem fairly solid, his .298 OBP and just two steals over his last 13 games continue to hammer home the point that fantasy owners overreacted in drafts this season and aren't getting the production they expected back in April. If you drafted Hamilton and failed to find a solid stolen base complement to him, you 're likely suffering in the category when you thought you'd be leading it by now. Lesson learned? We hope so.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jonathan Gray is expected to start for the Rockies Tuesday.
Gray was the third overall pick in 2013, but his minor league numbers have not exactly lived up to his lofty draft status. In 21 games at Triple-A this season, Gray has a 4.33 ERA, 3.89 FIP and 2.68 K/BB rate. While he probably needs to be owned in deeper leagues and keeper leagues, it is going to be awfully hard to feel confident starting him in Coors until he has some big league success. He could be a sneaky tournament play for DFS Tuesday against the strikeout-prone Mariners, but Gray could easily give up five home runs as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Nationals on Sunday.
Duda is absolutely on fire and is a must-start until he shows signs of slowing down. He became the first Mets player in franchise history to hit nine home runs in an eight-game span after his 21st bomb of the season tonight. Duda was middling around this summer until coming on strong this past week. In his last eight games he has nine homers, 11 hits and a ridiculous 1.393 slugging percentage. This is obviously something Duda won’t be able to keep up, but until he drops off keep him in your lineup. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
