Welcome back to “Who Wants to be a Fantasy Millionaire?” No, not a millionaire like Mike Trout, we don’t quite have that power. But if you play your cards right you could come out ahead today. In order to do that you’ll need to anchor you team with a beast like Cody Bellinger ($5,100) – He has come out of the gates swinging and is absolutely on fire batting over .400 with 7 bombs already. That’s the power we crave. Lock it in. The beast has awoken and I have a feeling this won’t be the last time I highlight him here. He may be expensive, but he’s someone you should pay up for.

Dylan Bundy, SP: $6,000 – Sometimes it’s best to trust the robot, this is one of those times. Many of us have been burned by Bundy in the past but let’s not forget that he was a top prospect with all the tools to succeed as an ace. His major issue has been putting all that talent together, but he get a great opportunity against the A’s even though it’s in hitter friendly Camden Yards.
Jeff Samardzija, SP: $5,900 – The Shark swims again. He’s not dominating but he is getting the job done. Facing the Rockies away from the thin air is always a plus. He makes for a great value pick due to his lower price point.
Sonny Gray, SP: $7,300 – He rebounded from his disastrous first outing with a nice 7 K performance. The Marlins are certainly not the most intimidating lineup to face even if the Reds may not do him any favors.
Trey Mancini, 1B: $3,900 – Another first baseman who has come out hacking and just crushing the ball. He’s shown flashes before and as long as he’s this dialed in he makes for a compelling option.
Rowdy Tellez, 1B: $2,600 – Let’s get Rowdy. This is your swing for the fences move. It could pay off or it could blow up in your face. If you like to live on the edge, look no further. For what it’s worth, Hittertron is a fan.
Dee Gordon, 2B: $3,500 – Gordon is off and running to start the season, and that’s a good thing for our purposes. His speed makes him a threat every time he steps into the box. Flash Gordon lives.
Ozzie Albies, 2B: $3,400 – The Wizard of Oz is working his magic so far. He started hot last season and he’s hot now so ride the wave while you can. Follow the yellow brick road to fantasy glory.
Rafael Devers, 3B: $3,100 – Batting third for the Red Sox, which Devers often does against righties, is a pretty sweet gig. As fantasy players, this is exactly what we want: a prime spot in a potent lineup. He did bat sixth on Tuesday but that’s not enough of a drop to make you forget about him.
Jeff McNeil, 3B: $3,100 – A surprise fantasy star on the young season, McNeil slots in at the head of the Mets lineup. He also boasts positional flexibility. That in and of itself won’t help you on Fanduel, where it seems he’s only eligible at 3B, but it gives the Mets more ways to get him in the lineup.
Tim Beckham, SS: $3,900 – Quick, who’s the top SS in ESPN and is back from a hamstring injury? Since this is his blurb, I hope you guessed Tim Beckham. Surprise right? It’s not a trick question. His injury wasn’t serious so I wouldn’t hesitate to plug him in today.
Trevor Story, SS: $3,800 – Sadly his game today is not in the friendly confines of Coors, but he’s still a talented guy. And while Samardzija has been looking solid to start the season, he’s not exactly an Ace.
Ronald Acuna Jr, OF: $4,200 – This early in the season it’s important to not get too wrapped up in ratios because of the small sample size. This is even more true in DFS where we’re only dealing with a small sample size. Bet on the talent winning out and with Tildaddy, the stratosphere is a the limit.
Wil Myers, OF: $3,200 – Suddenly the Padres batting order doesn’t look so weak. Once you recover from that shock, get in on the action with Myers. His price is quite low for that kind of power/speed potential. And with the new and improved Padres, his counting stat potential is pretty good too.yers
Michael Conforto, OF: $4,000 – Today Conforto will look to start a new homerun streak. Even if he doesn’t knock one out, he’s still pretty locked in and seems to be heating up. He’s always had the talent and he’s on a mission.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Chicago is the only MLB city with weather concerns. This will only potentially impact the Pirates and Cubs with moderate to severe rainfall. Other than that, it’s smooth sailing and you can fire anyone up that you want.
