Top Tier

Mookie Betts, Los Angeles Dodgers - OF ($5.5K on DK, $4.3K on FD)

Willing to pay full retail on the "Coors Tax” in DFS with Betts in Coors Field. He finished the first half strong hitting four home runs in his last 13 games with 11 runs, 10 RBI, and a .255 isolated power. His opponent tonight, Antonio Senzatela's a reverse splits guy giving up all four of his home runs at home to right-handed hitters along with a .295 batting average against. In their past match-ups, Betts owns a double and two home runs among his five hits in 10 at-bats fueling a .465 expected batting average (xBA), a .842 expected slugging (xSLG) rate and a .568 expected weighted on-base average (xwOBA) entering tonight's slate. 

Matt Olson, Oakland - 1B ($5.3 on DK, $3.9K on FD)

Yes, he disappointed in the Home Run Derby, but in a prime bounce-back spot tonight facing Eli Morgan (3.4 home runs per nine innings his last 30 days) at home. Versus right-handed pitching, Olson boasts a .274/.374/.538 slash with a home run every 15.5 at-bats (12 home runs in 186 at-bats) and 29 walks against 30 strikeouts. Speculating Olson starts the second half in a robust manner. 

Mid Tier

Mitch Haniger, Seattle - OF ($4.1K on DK, $3.6K on FD)

Before worrying about if Haniger eventually gets traded, he's pacing towards a 30 home run season well below the radar. He's cracked three home runs in his last 12 contests and hit eight against southpaws this season in only 104 at-bats (one every 13). Armed with a .538 slugging percentage versus left-handed pitching, he also carries six hits in 18 at-bats facing Andrew Heaney with three home runs, a .320 xBA, .884 xSLG and .511 xwOBA in 20 plate appearances. Pretty, pretty good. 

Jed Lowrie, Oakland - 2B ($3.8K on DK, $3.2K on FD)

A streaky option this season, Lowrie ended the first half on a heater producing a .364/.404/.705 slash his last 12 games with four home runs and nine RBI. Noting the propensity Eli Morgan owns above to the long ball, a nice mini-stack of A's hitters could pay off with most flocking to Coors for hitters. Within Lowrie's last 12 game sample, he owned a .341 isolated power and 204 weighted runs created plus (wRC+) metric. 

A.J. Pollock, Los Angeles Dodgers - OF ($3.9K on DK, $3.5K on FD)

Well, targeting Dodgers does make sense, but heed the reverse splits label for Senzatela and zig when the market may zag towards the left-handed hitters. Pollock generated six home runs in his last 44 plate appearances with a .316/.409/.868 slash line. He also owns some positive history versus tonight's starter with three doubles and a home run among his seven hits in 20 at-bats adding to his allure. 

Bargain Bats

Dylan Moore, Seattle - 2B/3B ($2.4K on DK); 2B/OF ($2.2K on FD)

For tournament play only, a risky profile, and a boom or bust option, Moore could pay off on this slate at near minimum pricing. Positives: he can be used at multiple positions on both sites, produces better left-handed pitching during his career, and 4-for-9 in previous match-ups against Heaney with two extra-base hits (double, home run) good for a .835 xSLG in them. Negatives: he hit under the Mendoza line the last two weeks but with two home runs and two stolen bases with a high propensity of striking out (34.1 strikeout percentage). Feeling lucky? 

Nico Hoerner, Chicago Cubs - 2B ($3.5K on DK); SS ($2.3K on FD)

Suddenly in the market for a lead-off hitter, could the Cubs turn to Hoerner? If so, this adds to his attractiveness on this slate with his team opening up in Arizona facing Madison Bumgarner fresh off the injured list. In a limited sample this season, Hoerner's hitting .281 versus southpaws with two doubles and more walks (five) than strikeouts (four) over 38 plate appearances. Playing a hunch here but hoping he hits in one of the two top spots in the lineup this evening returning at least three times the value compared to his FanDuel price point.
