Dansby Swanson ($3,600) has been on a tear over the last month, batting .351 with eight homers and three steals for Atlanta. Lieutenant Dans should keep rolling tonight as he takes on Keegan Akin, owner of an abysmal 8.13 ERA. Swanson leads a Braves stack that can include power hitting outfielder Jorge Soler ($3,300), who has an .815 OPS against lefties, along with cleanup hitter Austin Riley ($3,800). This is a terrific spot for the Braves in a hitter’s park in Baltimore, and they could be the key piece to succeeding in tournaments.

Robbie Ray, SP: $10,500 – Ray’s strikeout upside gives him the highest ceiling of any starting pitcher tonight. He’s got a dominant 30.3% K-rate and faces a Tigers lineup that strikes out 25.9% of the time against lefties, which is third-most in all of baseball. If you’re looking to spend up at pitcher, Ray is the best option.
Sonny Gray, SP: $8,400 – Gray has been getting roughed up lately, but a start against the Marlins is exactly what he needs to turn things around. Miami has just a .299 wOBA against right-handed pitching, and Gray can score well with a 28.5% strikeout rate.
Anthony Rizzo, 1B: $3,500 – Rizzo interestingly has reverse splits this season, as he’s mashing lefties with a 158 wRC+. He’s got a nice combination of floor and ceiling batting second for the Yankees against Twins starter Charlie Barnes, who has a 5.14 FIP.
Brendan Rodgers, 2B/SS: $3,300 – Rodgers is a lock in cash games batting second in Coors Field, the best hitter’s environment in the league, where Rodgers is batting .296 this year. Both Rockies and Diamondbacks hitters are also worth stack considerations in tournaments in what could be the highest-scoring game on the slate.
Mike Moustakas, 3B/2B: $2,500 – Moustakas has lots of power potential at home against Elieser Hernandez, who has a career 1.88 HR/9. Moose hit 35 homers during the last full season and is a super cheap flier in GPP tournaments. He now gets to face Keegan Akin, owner of an abysmal 8.13 ERA.
Franmil Reyes, OF: $3,000 – Reyes has 16 home runs against righties this year and is another cheap power option. His strikeout risk is strongly mitigated against Jaime Barria, who has only struck out 11.3% of batters in 2021.
