22-year-old Rafael Devers ($3,900), a.k.a. Baby Face Killa, has been an elite hitter against right-handed pitching with a .325/.383/.598 line, along with 24 homers and just a 15.8% K-rate. He can easily finish as one of Tuesday’s top hitters against an opener in Edinson Volquez, who has more walks (11) than strikeouts (9), followed by Ariel Jurado and his 5.73 ERA. Devers should be a centerpiece of your lineups and is affordable at this price.

Noah Syndergaard, SP: $8,200– There is a ton of pitching available tonight, and the aces atop the slate are well worth the investment if you’re willing to dump some payroll. If you’re looking for some cheaper options, though, look for Syndergaard and Bumgarner. Syndergaard gets to face the Marlins at home, and they’ve been the worst lineup in all of baseball against righties with their .287 wOBA. While Thor has struggled lately, you should have complete confidence in him for this outing.
Madison Bumgarner, SP: $8,600– MadBum is a bit more expensive than Syndergaard, but you can’t go wrong with him either, as Bumgarner is at home in an extreme pitcher’s park. The Rockies are awful on the road, with a .288 wOBA away from Coors.
Anthony Rizzo, 1B: $4,100– Rizzo has a 1.135 OPS over the last two weeks and is in an extra-valuable spot batting leadoff for the Cubs, where he can snag an extra plate appearance on many nights. The Cubs should go off on Mitch Keller, owner of a 7.74 ERA, so expect Rizzo to score some runs.
Whit Merrifield, 2B: $3,200 – Second base is frequently a rough position on FanDuel, so rolling with a cheap leadoff hitter like Merrifield is usually a safe bet. Opposing starter Julio Teheran has outperformed his 4.65 FIP by over a full run. Merrifield is batting .308 against righties, making him an attractive cash game play.
Jonathan Villar, SS: $3,500 – Villar is having another monster fantasy month, with five homers and 10 steals in the last 30 days. He’s in a hitter-friendly park against a rookie starter in Anthony Kay, owner of a 5.79 ERA.
Oscar Mercado, OF: $3,400– Mercado is one of the hottest hitters in the league, batting .353 over the last two weeks, and he’s got a homer or a steal in his last four contests. Consider him and teammate Yasiel Puig ($3,400) against Hector Santiago, who has a 5.65 ERA.
