With the promotion of first baseman Nate Lowe ($2,300) the Rays have made life difficult for fantasy players who are looking for Brandon Lowe ($3,700) and pick the wrong one. Fortunately, they both make good plays today. Jorge Lopez does not present a great challenge. Brandon has been doing quite well in April, rocking a solid average with lovely counting stats. As for Nate, he could be a monster as he has the tools to provide power and a high average. Either way, going “Lowe” could take you high.

Noah Syndergaard, SP: $9,000 – All hail the mighty Thor! In the spirit of Avenger:Endgame (don’t worry, no spoilers here, I haven’t seen it yet) (and if you spoil it in the comments, I will end you) let’s go with the god of thunder.
Charlie Morton, SP: $9,400 – Morton’s Steakhouse is open. The Royals aren’t an intimidating offense, as long as you keep them off the base paths. Then they’re basically the Flash. But I like his chances of
Tyler Skaggs, SP: $8,300 – He’s squaring off against the Jays and he’s not awful, ‘nuf said. But, if you want more he’s rocking a solid ERA and K numbers. He’s in prime position to take advantage of this matchup.
Freddy Peralta, SP: $6,200 – The Rox are much less imposing away from Coors. He’ll bring the Ks and I’m thinking that the Rockies will bring the swing-n-miss. Returning from a shoulder injury does present some risk and he can be wildly inconsistent but if you like to live on the edge, this one’s for you.
Paul Goldschmidt, 1B: $3,900 – Au Shizz lives. He’s showing off the power in St. Louis even if it seems the speed didn’t make the trip. I suppose that’s to be expected at this stage in his career. Even still, he’s an elite option at first.
Travis Shaw, 2B: $2,600 – Let’s hear it for slow starters shall we? His average is awful (trust me, I know, I have him in one of my leagues) but the power potential doesn’t just vanish. He doesn’t get the benefit of the “Coors effect”, but Miller is practically as good and it has fewer carbs.
Alex Bregman, 3B: $4,100 – And he’s walkin. One of the preseason’s potential MVP picks has yet to really turn it on. However, that doesn’t change the fact that he’s got tons of talent and that’s always a good bet in DFS.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr, 3B: $3,200 – He’s the hot new thing and everyone else is talking about him. I want in on that action too. You should too since he can hit the ball a mile with ease.
Paul DeJong, SS: $4,000 – That average is delightful, with a little power and speed mixed in. Seriously, he’s raking right now so I say let’s ride the wave.
Jorge Polanco, SS: $4,000 – He has started the season on an absolute tear, batting over .300 with, fun fact, 3 triples. That’s pretty neat. The RBIs should pick up even is the Twins don’t have a ton of firepower.
George Springer, OF: $4,300 – It feels like everyone is a little down on him this year, but we won’t make that same mistake. The Astros are still stacked offensively and he’s flashing the power and the speed. That makes him a fine option.
Eddie Rosario, OF: $4,100 – Very quietly he’s turning in another great season. Ok, on the surface, his stats don’t look great as he’s only batting around .240. But in points leagues he’s been straight fire, mostly due to his 11 bombs. Don’t overlook him when you’re filling out your lineup.
Tommy Pham, OF: $3,900- Batting right around the .300 mark with power and speed is a great way to start the season. On top of that, the Rays are actually looking like an MLB team so he has the chance to really do some damage.
Victor Robles, OF: $3,800 – Everyone (especially Grey) has been busy telling you about Juan Soto aka Sexy Dr Pepper. He’s great and all but I’m here to tell you about another young Nationals outfielder who’s got some juice. Power, speed, runs, even a few RBIs thrown in for good measure,
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Weather shouldn’t be too much of a factor today, although there may be some soggy conditions in Milwaukee. Other than that the chances of precipitation are slim to none. Party on.
