Athletics starter Sean Manaea ($9,200) has been solid this year with a 3.70 FIP and exceeded expectations with a 25.8% K-rate. Normally he would be a starter to avoid when facing the Astros, but Houston just clinched the division last night. They’re probably going to use their “hangover lineup” tonight, meaning most of their starters will rest. Therefore, Manaea may fall off the radar for many of your opponents who automatically fade him against the Astros. The biggest edge on tonight’s slate is identifying which teams are still in the hunt and which ones will be phoning it in with nothing on the line to play for.

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner ($3,300) is an awesome value tonight as he takes on Humberto Castellanos, who has a 4.85 FIP and a 5.00 SIERA. Turner has a .353 wOBA and is in a spot for RBI batting fifth for LA. He can be paired with other Dodgers hitters like Will Smith ($3,500) and AJ Pollock ($3,000) as a sneaky way to stack the Dodgers. Usually, the back end of a lineup isn’t where you want to stack, but the Dodgers are so loaded that they’ve still got great hitters there. These guys will be relatively cheap and low rostered, providing a unique build in tournaments that still has plenty of upside.

Cleveland’s Franmil Reyes ($3,400) has been crushing the ball over the last month, batting .275 with nine home runs. Could you imagine what his power numbers would look like in a park like Yankee Stadium? Well, you don’t have to wonder much longer, as he’s there tonight! Reyes will face Corey Kluber, who has been awful since returning from the injured list, posting an 8.49 ERA and allowing a home run in all three starts. Using Reyes will also provide you with leverage over anybody using Kluber as their pitcher in larger field tournaments, particularly if paired with Jose Ramirez ($4,000). Either way – as a standalone or a stack, Franmil smash.

Christian Yelich ($3,500) and the Brewers are a can’t miss stack on tonight’s slate as they take on Eli Morgan, who has a 5.48 ERA and a 2.00 HR/9. Yelich is in a great spot for runs and RBI batting third for Milwaukee, and he can be played along with cheap high-upside bats in Eduardo Escobar ($3,400) and Rowdy Tellez ($2,300). Many of these guys are also worth mixing into your cash lineup – particularly Kolten Wong ($3,500), who is batting .283 atop the lineup. In whatever contests you are playing, you will want to consider building around these bats.

Pete Alonso ($3,500) is batting .319 over the last two weeks and gets a strong matchup tonight against Nationals lefty Sean Nolin, who has a 6.57 ERA. Alonso has a 144 wRC+ against left-handed pitching this year, and he is part of a strong Mets stack that includes Francisco Lindor ($3,300) and Javier Baez ($3,400). These Mets hitters are very affordable and a great way to differentiate from the rest of the field, who will surely be playing lots of hitters in the Braves-Rockies game, so they should be a priority target in GPP tournaments.

For a player looking to break out of a slump, there are few things more attractive than a game in Camden Yards against Matt Harvey. Rays outfielder Austin Meadows ($3,300) is in the perfect spot to buy low on, as he’s still got a 147 wRC+ against righties on the year and is in a great spot batting cleanup for Tampa Bay. Meadows can be used as a standalone or as part of a Rays stack against a pitcher in Harvey who has a 6.27 ERA with a 1.43 HR/9. Other Rays bats to target include Nelson Cruz ($3,800) and Brett Phillips ($2,500).

Dansby Swanson ($3,600) has been on a tear over the last month, batting .351 with eight homers and three steals for Atlanta. Lieutenant Dans should keep rolling tonight as he takes on Keegan Akin, owner of an abysmal 8.13 ERA. Swanson leads a Braves stack that can include power hitting outfielder Jorge Soler ($3,300), who has an .815 OPS against lefties, along with cleanup hitter Austin Riley ($3,800). This is a terrific spot for the Braves in a hitter’s park in Baltimore, and they could be the key piece to succeeding in tournaments.

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts ($3,600) headlines the Red Sox as tonight’s highest upside stack, taking on the Orioles’ Spenser Watkins. Watkins has a rough 5.18 SIERA and just a 16.2% K-rate, so expect Bogaerts and his teammates to be spraying the ball around a hitter’s park in Fenway. Bogaerts is crushing it this season with a .304/.371/.509 line and is in the heart of the order batting third. He can be paired with value bats like Jarren Duran ($2,500) or expensive mashers like J.D. Martinez ($4,000) for an effective stack.

While it’s been a quiet year for Wander Franco ($3,000) since being called up, he has actually been crushing left-handed pitching with a .955 OPS. He will be batting second for the Rays, a great spot to rack up runs and RBI against opposing southpaw John Means. Means is clearly due for regression with a .198 BABIP and a 4.51 FIP, as well as a 1.73 HR/9. We can take advantage of this matchup with other Rays hitters like Nelson Cruz ($3,700) and Randy Arozarena ($3,700) to stack with Franco.

The trade deadline hot stove is on fire right now, with lots of deals leading to huge fantasy implications. Quick thinking DFS players can use this information to their advantage by identifying players moving to favorable situations. One under-the-radar play is 3B/2B Eduardo Escobar ($3,000), who has joined the hot-hitting Brewers lineup. The Brewers are a high upside stack option against Touki Toussaint, as they will be low-rostered based on Toussaint’s recent success. However, Toussaint has a career 5.38 ERA and just had a 4.32 ERA in triple-A; he’s a young starter prone to blowups. Willy Adames ($2,800) and Rowdy Tellez ($2,300) are among the cheap Brewers bats who can pay off along with Escobar.

Outfielder Austin Meadows ($3,400) and the Rays take on Zach Plesac and the newly named Cleveland Guardians in what should be a smash spot for Tampa. Plesac has a 4.78 FIP and is not missing many bats with a 16.4% K-rate, while Meadows has a .900 OPS against right-handed pitching. Nelson Cruz ($3,700) will also be debuting for the Rays tonight, offering a strong stack opportunity along with Brandon Lowe ($3,500).

Manny Machado ($3,600) is tearing it up with six homers and three steals in the last month while batting .350. He’s in a spot to drive in lots of runs batting cleanup against Erick Fedde, who has a 4.59 ERA for the Nats. Machado is best used as part of a stack, and there are affordable bats like Tommy Pham ($2,800), Trent Grisham ($3,400), and Jake Cronenworth ($2,800) surrounding him. The Padres can easily be the highest-scoring team tonight, making them an enticing tournament play.
