When playing DFS and the slate has a game at Coors Field, DFS players on Fanduel have a decision to make. Do they be contrarian and fade the thin Colorado air, or do they chase the chalk up the Rocky Mountains? If there was a time to pass on loading up on a Coors’ game, it might be today.
Both pitchers scheduled to pitch in this one have been fairly successful in Colorado. The Braves’ Julio Teheran has pitched in Coors’ Field four times and has yet to allow a home run. In fact, he has held the Rockies to just a .313 OBP, .348 SLG and a .661 OPS in these four appearances.
And for the home team, Kyle Freeland has been very successful in Colorado. He had a 2.40 home ERA in 2018, while limiting opposing teams to a .226/.298/.393 slash line in those games.

Justin Verlander, SP: $10,700 – Houston opened up as a -165 favorite in Vegas for good reason. Verlander has dominated this current Yankees’ lineup. In 63 at-bats he has held them to a .190/.249/.283 with 20 strikeouts.
Buster Posey, C: $2,500 – In 2018, Posey recorded a .361 wOBA versus lefties.
Rhys Hoskins, 1B: $4,600 – Hoskins has crushed right-handed pitching so far this season. He owns a 1.200 OPS against them in the early going of the 2019 campaign.
Enrique Hernandez, 2B: $3,600- The Cardinals’ Mikolas is getting hit hard by everyone so far this season. He is allowing right-handed batters to mash with a 45% hard contact rate in 2019. Look for Kiki to hit a few hard as he owns a .500 ISO versus righties this year.
Matt Chapman, 3B: $3,700 – So far in 2019 the Orioles’ Andrew Cashner is allowing a .333 batting average to righties. Look for Matt Chapman to do his best to make that number increase. He owns a 1.088 OPS and .208 ISO against righties in 2019.
Ryon Healy, 3B: $3,900 – The Mariners’ third baseman is averaging double digit FanDuel points this season. No reason to think he hurts his average in this one against Homerun Bailey. Healy has a .950 OPS versus righties this season.
Cody Bellinger, OF: $4,700 – Bellinger is in a nice spot for Monday. Not only is the Cardinals’ Mikolas getting hit hard by lefties (41.2% hard contact rate) but he is also raking against right-handed pitching. He has a 1.083 SLG against righties this season.
Christian Yelich, OF: $5,000 – The reigning MVP continues to dominate opposing pitchers. Nothing should change that on Monday as he faces a right-handed pitcher in Trevor Cahill. Yelich has a .500 ISO against righties in 2019.
Trey Mancini, OF: $3,600 – The Baltimore outfielder is a great DFS option on Monday. Mancini has seen the ball real well against righties so far this season. He has a .364 batting average and six extra-base hits against them in 33 at-bats this season. The outfielder also faces Oakland’s Estrada, who has struggled with righties. In 2018 he allowed a .389 wOBA to them. So far this season he is giving up a 44.4% hard contact rate to right-handed batters.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Small chance of some rain in San Francisco. But nothing major appears to be on the radar for Monday.
