Favorite Hitters to Use for DFS Lineups

Hunter Goodman, 1B/OF, Colorado Rockies

Goodman has been performing well since his called up and that hasn’t slowed down at all. We get a good matchup tonight in what appears to be a high scoring game at Coors Field as the Cubs and Rockies are the top two projected implied runs totals tonight with neither sending good pitchers to the hill. Goodman is cheap, which helps as well. 

Brendan Rodgers, 2B, Colorado Rockies

Another Rockies bat, and not only that, but another cheap Rockies bat. Rodgers hasn’t been incredible by any means since making his return but he has hit well at Coors Field in his career and has hit well against lefties. Plug and play. 

Ronny Mauricio, 2B/3B/SS, New York Mets

I have been on Mauricio a lot lately and tonight is another one of those nights. He is extremely cheap and the Mets are facing a terrible pitcher in Zach Davies. I actually don’t mind the idea of a full Mets stack and it can be done in a pretty cheap way if you use guys like Mauricio, D.J. Stewart, and Mark Vientos. Of course, the big boys in Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor are options as well. 

Seiya Suzuki, OF, Chicago Cubs

Another play that I have been on a ton lately is Suzuki and he has been incredible, consistently putting up solid point games. And now we get him at Coors Field and still at a very reasonable cost. I would be willing to gamble that he is one of the highest rostered players on tonight’s slate, but it makes a lot of sense and I see him as good chalk. 

Pete Crow-Armstrong, OF, Chicago Cubs

We don’t have the Cubs lineup yet, but PCA should be in it after being called up today. He is the most obvious play of the slate in my opinion at $2,000 and playing at Coors Field with the blend of power and speed that he provides. He is only available on DK though.
