Walker Buehler has been shredding opposing lineups over the last month, posting a 2.70 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 30 innings. He’s got a 3.34 SIERA and a 3.40 Deserved Run Average on the season with a 26.5% K-rate, proving to be a worthwhile starter in his rookie season. After taking down some tough matchups in the Mariners, Rockies (at Coors), and Astros, he shouldn’t have a problem with the Cardinals tonight.

Freddy Peralta, SP: Peralta has that sweet, sweet upside with a 30.5% K-rate. The Reds lineup is low-key trash right now after losing Votto and a slew of others to injuries. You can grab Peralta pretty late in your draft and still get a chance at a huge start from him.
Nolan Arenado, IF: Arenado at Coors, Arenado at Coors, Arenado at Coors.
Freddie Freeman, IF: It’s not clear why Freeman is buried under so many hitters in projected points on Draft, as he’s batting .355 with a 1.010 OPS in the last 15 days and has a monster 149 wRC+ on the season. Pirates starter Trevor Williams has been significantly outperforming his ERA, as he doesn’t strike anybody out and has a 4.30 FIP.
Mookie Betts, OF: Betts has been one of the best players in fantasy and is still projected for only 9.3 points. *thinking emjoi*
Nicholas Castellanos, OF: Nick’s trying to look more sophisticated by going by “Nicholas” this year, and it seems to be paying off at the plate. He’s obliterated lefties to the tune of a 188 wRC+ this season and faces a weak southpaw in Jon Lester.

Thankfully there’s nothing to be concerned about as far as weather goes.
