It’s another Sunday filled with studs on the mound. We’ve got Biebers and deGroms and Nolas, oh my! However, when it comes to picking a pitcher for my GPP lineups today, I’m going to be rocking Tyler Glasnow ($10,100). First off, he’s more than a grand cheaper than the big dogs on the slate. Second of all, he’s at home. C) Yes, there’s a C) He’s facing the Marlins, who just passed the Diamondbacks to move all the way to the fourth worst team OPS. Finally, he’s been an absolute strikeout fiend this season, dishing out a 15.1 K/9. FIFTEEN POINT ONE! Sorry, strikeouts get my DFS juices flowing! If you feel the same, than hop on the Glasnow bandwagon and win yourself some cash.

Dallas Keuchel, SP: $8,600 – I honestly don’t love any other pitchers today, but I could see getting behind Keuchel. The Royals are top 10 in team strikeouts and bottom 10 in team OPS, a nice combo for a solid pitching performance for Keuchel.
Casey Mize, SP: $6,300 – This is a bit like my Dane Dunning play the other day (which paid off quite handsomely if you happened to listen), but I am much less confident in Mize. The hype is there, but the results haven’t been yet. Still, at this price, you can STACK your offense and cross your fingers that Mize finally shines.
Rowdy Tellez, C/1B: $3,100 – Stacking against Red Sox pitching hasn’t failed me yet this season and Andrew Triggs sure doesn’t put any fear in me. Rowdy has the platoon advantage and in hitter friendly Fenway Park, should have a field day.
Carlos Santana, C/1B: $2,800 – Brett Anderson has been fairly “meh” and Santana hits lefties better than righties for his career. I’d prefer Rowdy here, but could see saving a few bucks for Santana if needed.
Jonathan Schoop, 2B: $3,000 – Speaking of “meh”, Rich Hill hasn’t been his old self this season, or maybe he actually is now his old self. Either way, Schoop will be hitting in the middle of the Tigers lineup against Hill and I like his chances.
Nick Madrigal, 2B: $2,500 – Madrigal is my new cheap second baseman du jour. Cash in before the price tag matches the talent.
Josh Donaldson, 3B: $2,800 – Donaldson is plenty well rested and we all know he’s got power to spare. If you don’t roster Mize, Donaldson would be an excellent play. Now that Devers is priced up, I’ll go with Donaldson until he heats up.
Adalberto Mondesi, SS: $2,500 – Just my weekly write-up of Mondesi in the hopes (prayers?) that he gets hot soon. It’s gotta happen!
Eddie Rosario, OF: $2,900 – Again, if you aren’t starting Mize, he’s certainly been rough enough so far to warrant stacking some vets against him.
Adam Duvall, OF: $2,700 – Playing Duvall against Corbin might not seem brilliant, but Duvall has been scorching hot. In a short season, I’m riding the hot hand when I can.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
It’s a beautiful Sunday for baseball!

Shane Bieber and the Indians are one of the biggest favorites today at -240 and that [email protected] game does feature the co-smallest run total on the slate with just seven runs. [email protected] also has a seven run total where Aaron Nola takes on Jacob deGrom. The White Sox and Rays are big favorites as well at -220 and the Yanks are right there at -210. If you fire up any of those starters today I wouldn’t argue with you. The largest run total of the day is in Boston, with 11 runs. Ray vs. Triggs…yea, stack all sides there.
