Carlos Gonzalez
FD: $3000
DK: $4000

First and foremost, this one will be chalk, especially on FanDuel. CarGo is priced like he doesn’t have a game in Coors tonight. Gonzalez is projected to hit clean-up with the Rockies having an implied total north of 6 runs. You could add $1500 to his price and he’d still be popular. You can’t find a better dollar for dollar play on the slate.

Mike Moustakas
FD: $4100
DK: $4500

Let’s try this again. Moose Tacos has a prime match-up with Chris Tillman and the Orioles. Tillman has been nothing short of atrocious this season, sporting a 6.14 xFIP in 25.3 innings. He has more walks than strikeouts. If you want someone outside of Coors tonight, I would look at the Royals and Moustakas first.

Ryan Braun
FD: $3700
DK: $4600

These guys are simply too cheap. This was a toss-up between Braun and his teammate Christian Yelich, but ultimately, I think saving a few bucks is a better play. German Marquez is fine, but the Brewers still have the second highest implied total on the slate. For the fans of the live stream, Braun might be my pick for “Did He Dong?”.
