Welcome in to another edition of Razzball does Fanduel. I’m your host, butters, and I’ll be your guide to getting the edge on the competition and walking away with the jackpot. The entire Reds outfield is primed to put up some big numbers today but Tyler Naquin (OF: $3,400) represents the best value out of the group so he’s the one you should be targeting. He’s been racking up the points and his price tag isn’t ridiculous, especially since we’re getting that beautiful Coors boost. Fire him up and don’t look back, just enjoy the show. He’s rolling right now so let’s roll with him.

Charlie Morton, SP: $7,600 – Bot says he’s the second best option and at this price he’s the best value. Tough to argue with that.
Zach Plesac, SP: $8,400 – I like his last two starts and the bot likes his match up today. His season numbers are encouraging as well, especially the 31:7 K:BB.
Anthony DeSclafani, SP: $7,400 – The Giants are surging this season and Tony Disco is a big part of it. He won’t be home in the bay for this time on the mound but does find himself with a strong match-up.
Matt Olson, C/1B: $3,000 – We’re here for the power and that power should play nicely in Fenway.
Brandon Belt, C/1B: $2,900 – His exit Tuesday was considered precautionary so I’m not overly concerned. As long as he’s back in the lineup he should go right back to hitting dingers. Just be aware that is a slight risk he could be held out again.
Mike Moustakas, 2B: $3,500 – When you can grab one of the days top bats for $3,500 you take it and run all the way to the bank.
Jonathan Schoop, 2B: $2,200 – The season numbers aren’t pretty but we know he can be better. He’s a value play today.
Jose Ramirez, 3B: $4,000 – He comes with a high price tag, but you gotta love what he’s been doing. The power has been awesome and he’s finding other ways to rack up points as well.
Brian Anderson, 3B: $2,200 – Here’s a good value at the hot corner. It’s a bit of a risk since he hasn’t been great so far, but there’s hope for him yet.
Trevor Story, SS: $3,600- Don’t be scared away by the price tag or the opposing pitcher. Story is that good and he’ll be at home He gives you a little bit of everything and that’s great for DFS
Brandon Crawford, SS: $2,900 – At this point it’s just silly that he has seven long balls. You love to see it and that puts him in play today.
Juan Soto, OF: $3,900 – He’s back and you love to see it. He’s not cheap but he’s absolutely worth the price of admission. He’s one of the game’s bright young stars he can show that off today.
Willie Calhoun, OF: $2,700 – He’s enjoying a breakout season and has found his way to the top of the order. I’m in on him at this price.
Mike Yastrzemski OF: $3,000 – Baby Yaz is back in action near the top of the order and that is music to my ears. He’s struggled in the average department and then missed some time with injury. But there’s reason to hope, not the least of which is that the bot rates him highly for today’s slate.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
I am happy to report that there are no major wind or rain issues to report so we are full steam ahead.
Doing Lines In Vegas
Today’s slate is projected for some firework and… whatever the opposite of fireworks is. Waterworks? That doesn’t sound right. Anyhoo, to no one’s surprise Vegas likes the Rockies and Reds bats in hitter friendly Coors. On the flip side we may not see much offense between the Pirates and Giants.
