We’ve all been slammed by the DraftKings and FanDuel commercials so much in the past few weeks. However on each one, you’re seeing the testimonials speak about how much they’ve won while playing fantasy football on the sites. That’s where the most of the attention is, especially this time of year. So if you’re still reading and still playing your DFS baseball tournaments or what have you, gold star for you.
Let’s get straight to the cash while everyone else is focused on football.

Ian Kennedy, SP: $7,600 – Two starters in the same game? Yeah, it’s usually a strategy I like to avoid so that I can try to luck into two wins. However, Kennedy has turned his season around in the second half, and it’s not like the Giants lineup strikes fear into you.
J.T. Realmuto, C: $3,300 – I wrote last week how he’s swinging the bat well in September, and it’s continuing. I love running Realmuto out as his price.
Mark Trumbo, 1B/OF: $3,300 – Honestly, I’m hoping to run into a home run with Trumbo. He faces Johnny Cueto, and as we’ve seen for much of his stint with the Royals, he’s the Cueto that has cable and not Direct TV.
Robinson Cano, 2B: $3,600 – Cano’s first half overshadows his second-half efforts, but he’s swinging a better bat lately. I’m not afraid of Cueto, if you can’t tell.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B: $3,900 – Murphy hit a big home run that crushed my seasonal title hopes on Wednesday, so I feel like I need to play him for retribution. Plus, he has a good matchup against some guy named Josh Smith for the Reds. Heard of him?
Eugenio Suarez, SS: $3,600 – He’s so under owned in DFS and seasonal leagues. He has great pop, although it isn’t the best matchup in the world for him.
Nelson Cruz, OF: $4,000 – Cruz has been such a value this year and he hasn’t really slowed down. I like the possibility of Cruz taking Cueto deep.
Jacoby Ellsbury, OF: $3,500 – It’s not the ideal matchup, but he has the highest upside in his price range. Plus, he’s found his stroke over the past week, and being one of the streakiest hitters in baseball, it could be the start of a solid run to end the year.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
It’s mostly smooth sailing today, as only Minnesota poses a potential threat of rain with a 17 percent chance at first pitch.
Doing Lines In Vegas
Tampa Bay vs. Boston and Miami vs. Philadelphia have the highest over/under at 8.5 runs. It’s less about the offenses and more about the putrid pitching.
