MLB Top Plays of the Day 8/7/16

DFS_JDM back to give you my top plays of the day on this little 7 game slate too start off the week! Hopefully everybody has been getting the Cheat Sheets because they have been on absolute fire. Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me on twitter if you have any questions or need help constructing your lineups. Well let’s get to the plays!

CATCHER:

Willson Contreras – No surprise here! Contreras easily has been the hottest hitter on the planet since the ASB and he gets a LHP in Matt Moore only negative thing is the downgrade in ball park. .271 ISO / .401 wOBA / 34.2 HC%.

Matt Wieters – He is way too cheap on FD for his matchup, yes it sucks he hits 8th but he is $2,400. .222 ISO / .339 wOBA / 30.0 HC%.

Chris Gimenez – Punt Option! Make sure he is in the lineup before putting him in your DFS lines! .224 ISO / .309 wOBA / 30.2 HC%.

FIRST BASE:

Joey Votto – He is heating up! A little expensive but i think he is worth it tonight against RHP Chacin. .274 ISO / .430 wOBA / 36.4 HC%.

Ryan Zimmerman – Unreal that he is priced at 3.2K on FD, that is absurd! .309 ISO / .394 wOBA / 41.2 HC%.

Josh Bell – Jordan Zimmerman is not good and struggles with LHB. 215 ISO / .341 wOBA / 33.9 HC%.

SECOND BASE:

Scooter Gennett – Chacin struggles against LHB! And hitting in Great American Ballpark. .285 ISO / .409 wOBA / 36.7 HC%.

Brian Dozier – He left yesterday’s game with an illness make sure he is in the lineup tonight. He mashes LHP! .276 ISO / .429 wOBA / 34.9 HC%.

Javier Baez – A little expensive but he hits LHP very well. .301 ISO / .374 wOBA / 34.1 HC%.

THIRD BASE:

Anthony Rendon – Possibly my lock of the night! Again like Zimmerman his price on FD is absurd 3.3K. .365 ISO / .501 wOBA / 34.1 HC%.

Kris Bryant – Demolishes LHP and Matt Moore is awful! .262 ISO / .411 wOBA / 31.8 HC%.

Jeimer Candelario – Not sure he will play but if he does a great punt option at 3B for only 2K.

SHORTSTOP:

Wilmer Difo – Hopefully he is hitting 1 or 2 because he is a lock! .250 ISO / .417 wOBA / 23.1 HC%.

Eduardo Escobar – If he plays most likely hitting in the middle of the order for only 2.6K. .179 ISO / .341 wOBA / 31.7 HC%.

Tim Beckham – Probably the 2nd hottest hitter since the break only behind Contreras. .192 ISO / .342 wOBA / 43.0 HC%.

OUTFIELD:

Mike Trout / Andrew McCutchen / Justin Upton 

VALUE (3K and under on FD)

Albert Almora Jr / Howie Kendrick / Stephen Piscotty
