Because of his incredible ability as a pitcher, it seems like some people forget about how good Shohei Ohtani is as a fantasy hitter. Last year Ohtani had an elite 182 wRC+ against right-handed pitching, as well as 22 home runs and 10 steals in just 367 plate appearances. That prorates to a 35 homer, 16 steal season as a rookie! While it would be irresponsible to expect that kind of production, Ohtani is still very underrated on FanDuel with just a $3,300 salary. Ohtani went deep last night, and is in a valuable spot batting third for the Angels, right behind some dude named Mike Trout. Even in a matchup against a cruising Kyle Gibson, I just can’t avoid Ohtani at this price.

Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez has had an interesting 2019 campaign. His power output has been less then what owners should expect. But Martinez is rocking a curiously low 14.2% K-rate, which is the best mark of his career by a wide margin. Martinez still has an outstanding .392 OBP, and is racking up counting stats as Boston’s three-hitter. Once the power comes back around, Martinez will return to his status as a true fantasy stud. Martinez has a tremendous power opportunity tonight against David Hess, a pitcher that only Baltimore is desperate enough to roll out. Hess has a 6.01 FIP with a 2.37 HR/9, and Baltimore also happens to be one of the most hitter-friendly environments in the league. Consider stacking cheaper Red Sox bats like Rafael Devers and Mitch Moreland along with Martinez.

Phillies starter Vince Velasquez has quietly put a clean 1.99 ERA with 22 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings this year. He has a tremendous opportunity tonight against the Tigers, who struck out 14 times in their last game against Reynaldo Lopez – they now have the fourth-highest K-rate against righties at 26.6%. Their .288 wOBA is also one of the worst in baseball, as if you needed any evidence that a team batting Jeimer Candelario leadoff is bad. Unless you’re going to pay up for one of Trevor Bauer or Blake Snell, Velasquez is my favorite option at starting pitcher.

It has not been a fun ride for Chris Sale ($8,400) owners, but it was encouraging that he was able to average 95 mph on his fastball last time out. This could be the start that Sale finally turns things around, as he faces an abysmal Tigers lineup that has just a .256 wOBA versus left-handed pitching, the lowest mark in all of baseball. Sale is still a risky play, so I’d try to avoid him in cash games, but there’s a ton of profit to be made in GPP contests at this price.

Minnesota “outfielder” Nelson Cruz ($3,900) is off to an incredibly hot start, slashing .320/.485/.520 with a 176 wRC+. The 38-year-old DH (outfield eligible on FanDuel) just continues to mash as the Twins three-hitter, a spot where he can rack up runs and RBI. I recommend jumping on the Cruz ship as he faces Aaron Sanchez, who is coming off a season with a 4.89 ERA. Until FanDuel finally adjusts Nelly’s price, we can enjoy this cruise.

It was 17 years ago that Virginia rapper Fam-Lay hopped on Clipse’s debut album Lord Willin’ and spit a fire verse on the seventh track. Today, Rays outfielder Tommy Pham ($3,200) is in a spot where he can perform just as well as Fam-Lay, batting second against Ervin Santana. The 36-year-old Santana is making his first start of the year and is projected for a 5.49 ERA by Steamer. Tampa’s lineup should have a big day against him, so Pham will be in a spot to score runs out of the two-hole. He’s already got five steals this year and is worth a look in all contests at this price.

It feels like the Yasiel Puig hype has already died down, as his price is falling on FanDuel. After an offseason that saw his NFBC ADP rise to 57 by mid-March, Puig’s price is down to just $3,000 on FanDuel. But does his price deserve to be so low after only three games? Puig is coming off of a season with an elite 150 wRC+ against right-handed pitching, and is batting third in a strong Reds lineup. He’s in a fantastic hitter’s park in Cincinnati and gets a great matchup against Jhoulys Chacin, who posted a poor 4.51 Deserved Run Average in 2018. If Puig was coming off of a random 1-for-11 streak in the middle of June nobody would bat an eye, so why do we care now? The Wild Horse is one of the best bets you can make on Tuesday.

As Action Bronson once said, I’ll be “drinking Heaney like I’m Kenny Lofton” tonight on Draft. Andrew Heaney got rocked in his last time out, but it was against a tough lineup in the Astros. His task will be much easier against the Rangers, who have an awful .293 wOBA away from their hitter-friendly park at home. Heaney’s 3.79 SIERA and 3.66 Deserved Run Average suggest that he’s been better than his ERA. Draft him with confidence.

Even though he may not have reached his preseason expectations, Tommy Pham has put together a strong season and could still finish as a top 30 outfielder. His power-speed combo out of the Rays’ cleanup spot makes him an attractive target today in Texas. Globe Life Park is one of the best hitting environments in the league, especially during the day. Facing off against Yohander Mendez makes this an even better matchup for Pham, because:

A) Mendez sucks

B) Pham hits lefties better than righties, and

C) he’s projected for 0.0 points on Draft.

That’s right, as at time of writing, Draft has placed a 0 point projection on Pham (I’m assuming accidentally), so you should be able to grab him with one of your last picks.
