Josh Bell
FD: $3300
DK: $4000

With the second highest implied total on the main slate, I knew I’d be looking back to the Pirates. Based on price and upside, I’m loving Josh Bell. Bell has been better versus RHP in his career, so it’s good to get him from the left side of the plate. Homer Bailey has been bad in 2018 and his projections paint the same picture, which makes me confident in this Pittsburgh squad again.

Giancarlo Stanton
FD: $5200
DK: $5400

Well, this one will be popular. The Yankees sport a monster implied total, so I’m going for the best slugger in the game. Doug Fister is no longer the old Doug Fister. I’m betting on Stanton getting the better of him. Stanton has the highest probability of a homerun tonight in my numbers.

Anthony Rizzo
FD: $4100
DK: $4500

Adam Plutko has a projected 6.8 K/9 and a 5.68 FIP via Steamer, so targeting Cubs is one of my main strategies for tonight’s slate. The best play on the Cubs is Anthony Rizzo, who gets the LHH/RHP advantage while hitting behind Zobrist and Bryant. Speaking of those guys, you can put them in this third spot and I wouldn’t complain. Consider that a spoiler for Spotlight Stacks.
