This fine Tuesday presents us with an 11-game slate packed with studs and value plays. There’s a lot of attractive stacks, as well as some that may be a bit more lucrative than one would think. I talk about two of those stacks below, so make sure you keep reading to check out some of those teams! If you need some one-off plays for your cash or GPP contests, I got you covered there, too! All of that and more is below in today’s Value Vault!
Alfonso Rivas, 1B CHC ($2,000 FD/$2,000 DK/$10 Yahoo) - Minnesota’s Griffin Jax has a 6.65 ERA on the season, and on the road, he has a 7.16 ERA! He’s allowed 26 earned runs over his last 25 innings pitched, not to mention a whopping eight home runs! Rivas has been a breath of fresh air for the Chicago offense, hitting safely in his last seven games, and sporting an impressive .324 batting average and .810 OPS in the month of September. I like Rivas in any Chicago stack this evening.
David Fletcher, 2B LAA ($2,600 FD/$2,900 DK/$7 Yahoo) - The lack of pop in Fletcher’s bat caps his upside, for sure, but if you just need some surefire points to round out your cash game lineup, take a look at Fletcher. He’s 5-for-7 in his career against José Urquidy. He’s slumping a bit of late, but he is hitting .293 in his home park in 2021, and again, has good numbers against the Houston right-hander.
Xander Bogaerts, SS BOS ($14) - Bogaerts is 11-for-36 with two home runs in his career against Marcus Stroman, and for the 2021 season as a whole, the Boston shortstop is hitting .307 with a .379 wOBA against right-handed pitching. He’s hit safely in five of his last six games, and he has a .952 OPS at home in 2021.
Adam Frazier, 2B SD ($7) - In his career against Kevin Gausman, Adam Frazier is 9-for-26, good for a .346 batting average and .333 wOBA. The San Diego infielder has a .383 batting average and .942 OPS against San Francisco pitching this season, and overall against right-handers, he’s slashing .317/.378/.401. Frazier is hitting .354 in the month of September and he’s hit safely in each of his last six contests.
Gavin Lux, 2B/SS LAD ($3,000) - Lux is hitting .458 in the month of September and over the past week, he’s hitting .400 with a 1.171 OPS! He’s hit right-handers at a .259 clip in 2021 with a .749 OPS, and it’s not often that you find a guy with his potential around $3,000 on DraftKings playing at Coors Field. Check to see if he cracks the lineup, because if he does, plug him in your lineup, as Colorado’s Antonio Senzatela has allowed a .290 batting average and .336 wOBA to left-handed hitters.
Matt Duffy, 3B CHC ($2,000) - Another Chicago Cub! Yes. I like this offense tonight, and there’s a good amount of value within it as well. As mentioned earlier, Jax has struggled this year, and has really struggled of late. However, the same cannot be said for Duffy, who is hitting .350 with a 1.159 OPS over the past week, and .302 with a .905 OPS for the full month of September. Duffy has a .736 OPS against right-handers in 2021, alongside a .341 on-base percentage.
Ty France, 1B/2B SEA ($3,100) - I love stacking this Seattle offense tonight, starting with Ty France. Oakland’s Paul Blackburn has allowed a .318 batting average and .374 wOBA to right-handed hitters, and France is sporting a quality .293 batting average and .812 OPS versus righties. France has an .812 OPS on the road this season, and he’s hit Oakland pitching at a .308 clip in 2021. Along with France, you should be looking at Mitch Haniger and Jarred Kelenic in any Seattle stack against Blackburn.
Eddie Rosario, OF ATL ($2,800) - Rosario did well for us yesterday, so let’s go back to the well! The Atlanta outfielder is hitting .269 with an .817 OPS against right-handed pitching this season, but the attraction to Rosario this evening lies in the recent production. Over the last two or so weeks, he’s hitting .364 with a 1.342 OPS and he has as many home runs (5) as strikeouts (5)! While Arizona’s Luke Weaver has been excellent at home this season, he does have a 4.20 ERA over his last three starts,and his best home performances came earlier in the season. His two most recent home starts saw him serve up four earned runs on eight hits in nine innings of work.
