Jameson Taillon, PIT vs MIL ($7,300):Alex Reyes ($5,200) is at one of the cheapest prices you'll see all season for a starting pitcher and given his prospect status he's probably in play even in cash games. However, Taillon has proven to be ready to pitch deeper than the fifth inning and has had a lot of success since his call-up. Going against a Brewers team that just lit him up may hold some back, but the overall body of work suggests this is a good price to take advantage. Before his last outing he had eight straight games of at least 24 fantasy points and had three games of at least 42. The Brewers have the eighth-worst wOBA (.309) against right-handed pitching this season and strike out at the highest rate (25.8 percent) as well.
Mike Zunino, SEA vs LAA ($2,800): While Zunino still sits at a relatively small 115 PA on the season, he has a pretty drastic split between hitting at home and away. At Safeco Field his wOBA sits at a crazy .515 while on the road it dwindles down to only .272. He has a .549 wOBA against lefties at home, which is where he'll face Brett Oberholtzer, who has only started one game this season and has given up a .393 wOBA to right-handed hitters over 38.1 innings. Nelson Cruz should also be on the DFS radar.
Adrian Gonzalez, LAD vs SD ($3,000): Believe it or not, there are 24 other players at the position who are at this price or higher. Gonzalez has been up and down over the last 15 games, with seven games of six fantasy points or fewer but also scores of 16.5, 18.7, 50.9 and 73.6 as well. He comes in with a good history against Clayton Richard, who he's gone 9-for-16 against. Richard has a 3.78 ERA but his 1.94 WHIP suggests he's been extremely lucky and is due for a shelling.
Josh Harrison, PIT vs MIL ($3,000): If Taillon is going to be a cash lineup pick, it would make sense to take a teammate or two, hoping for run support to get the win. Harrison has been hitting in the leadoff spot and has reached base safely in the last seven games. He has fantasy games of 34.4 and 37.1 over that span and gets a decent matchup against Junior Guerra, who has been a nice surprise for the Brewers with a 2.93 ERA but is making his first start in almost a month after returning from a DL stint.
Jefry Marte, LAA at SEA ($2,900): Marte has been hitting in the middle of the order and has responded nicely with a .963 OPS over his last 14 games, along with five home runs over his last 30. He now gets the favorable righty vs. lefty matchup against Ariel Miranda, who has given up a .363 wOBA and three home runs at home (12.2 innings). Miranda had a 3.93 ERA at Triple-A Norwich this season, showing he's not on the verge of a big breakout.
Elvis Andrus, TEX vs HOU ($2,600): Typically it's risky to take players who don't have a ton of power but Andrus has been doing it on the base paths to make up for it. He's scored positive fantasy points in 14 of his last 15 games and has at least 12.2 in five of his last seven. Outside of Colorado, this game opened with the highest over/under (9.5), with the Rangers favored, suggesting there should be some fantasy value in Texas.
Khris Davis, OAK vs BOS ($2,800): This is a really contrarian play considering there aren't a lot of stats to suggest fading David Price. That being said, Davis has .369 wOBA against southpaws this season and owns a 1.002 OPS over his last 14 games. Davis also has a higher OPS at home (.849) than on the road (.809). This is really a hit-or-miss prediction, as he'll either homer tonight or go 0-for-4 with a couple of strikeouts.
Stephen Cardullo, COL vs ARI ($3,000): I've made it my mission this season to avoid talking about games in Colorado given the fact that they seem like obvious choices. FanDuel has tightened up their pricing (correctly so) and made the rock bottom price for any player in Colorado around $3,000. Many may not know who Cardullo is, but he's worth enough to talk and break the rule of recommending players at Coors Field. He's hit home runs in two consecutive games, including a grand slam. At Triple-A this season, he had an .889 OPS, suggesting that this power isn't a fluke.
Jay Bruce, NYM vs WAS ($3,000): Bruce is a notoriously streaky hitter and may be towards the start of a hot one. He homered Thrusday and has gone 5-for-11 over his last three games. He's been a fixture in the cleanup spot for the Mets and has a .357 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season. A.J. Cole has been prone to the home run ball since his call-up, giving up three in only 12.2 innings. He also had a 4.26 ERA at Triple-A this season, and rostering Michael Conforto ($2,500) isn't a bad idea either.
