We’ve got a full slate of Tuesday DFS tonight with a game at Coors thrown in for good measure.  That means, the decisions are plentiful are there are many ways the slate could play out.  I, for one, am always too chicken to fade Coors, which probably burns me more than it pays off.  Tonight will be no different though and I’m looking to kick things off with a very affordable David Price ($7,200) facing the Pirates at home.  The Pirates own baseball’s second-worst team OPS (.666) and are generally just a mess.  Price is stretched out and while the strikeouts haven’t been there, that’s baked into his price, which is a full $4,000 less than Corbin Burnes.  That’s a big swing in hitter pricing, which means more Coors bats for us!

Corbin Burnes, SP: $11,500 – The aforementioned top-priced pitcher on the slate is a great option for playing it safe tonight.  He’s projected to be the top-scoring pitcher and should easily boost you over 40 points.  The trouble will be finding those cheap bats tonight.

Vladimir Gutierrez, SP: $8,700 – I also like Framber in this price range, but VladGut (just go with it) gets the edge here for a couple of reasons.  Number one, he’s at home, number two, the Cubs may stink worse than the Royals and they definitely strikeout more often, and number three, Gutierrez has really looked great lately.  He’s given up 2, 1, 1, and 1 earned runs in his last four starts while striking out 5, 4, 6, and 6.  I like him to keep that rolling tonight.

Matt Olson, C/1B: $4,200 – Did you know Reynaldo Lopez was still in the league?  I was honestly shocked to see it.  Reynaldo was always a favorite to beat up on.  Having a 4.50+ FIP for four straight seasons will have that effect.  Load up on OAK tonight!

Brad Miller, C/1B: $2,400 – Speaking of high FIPs, Matt Peacock’s is at 4.89.  Philly bats are totally in play and Miller can put a couple out in a hurry.

Jose Altuve, 2B: $3,700 – There’s going to be some offense tonight folks.  Daniel Lynch and his 5.97 ERA is taking on the Astros, which will be a popular Coors pivot stack.  If you need to save yourself a grand, Aledmys Diaz works here too.

Kyle Seager, 3B: $3,100 – Spencer Howard could be great, but probably not this year.  Seager, meanwhile, just keeps on launching bombs.

Yoan Moncada, 3B: $2,700 – Yes, Yoan Moncada is the same price as Aledmys Diaz.  I refuse to accept this reality and demand that Moncada returns to form immediately.  Thank you.

Carlos Correa, SS: $3,500 – Let’s sneak one more into our Astros hit parade.  With all the top SS on the board, I think Correa could get overlooked.

Didi Gregorius, SS: $2,900 – Let’s also return to that Philly lineup if you prefer your SS a little cheaper. 

Mark Canha, OF: $3,500 – I’ll throw out one more OAK play and Canha is at a really nice price as well.

Max Kepler, OF: $3,200 – Eli Morgan has been a popular pitcher to pick on this season and Kepler has been on a tear the past seven days.

Connor Joe, OF: $2,900 – I’ve avoided any Coors plays to this point, you know who they are and who the good plays are, fit them where you can and supplement with cheaper options.  Connor Joe is cheap though and even hit leadoff last night, if that’s a trend that continues, his price will be upper $3,000 in no time.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

We could see a hint of rain in Washington, but nothing major.

Doing Lines In Vegas

On opposite ends of the spectrum, we have a 12 run total in Coors and a 7 run total in STL where Wainwright and Burnes face off.  The Dodgers are your biggest favorites on the day, which makes me even happier to roster Price.
