I’m tag teaming today’s post with FredWord who had to attend a quaint country wedding where wifi doesn’t exist. ¬†Fred wrote up some pitchers, and I’ll fill in the rest. ¬†Also of note, this is typically a day for FantasyDraft content, however, they have shuttered their baseball doors early to make way for fooseball. ¬†Harumph! ¬†The nerve! ¬†No harm, no foul though, we’ll just pass the content over to FanDuel for the final week. ¬†Now, onto Fred’s lede:
Please raise your hand if you were kicked out of the playoffs last week. Phew! I thought I was the only one. I‚Äôm still a bit numb from being kicked out the first week of the playoffs. I refuse to log into my app to salvage a 5th place finish. Instead I logged in early the first morning to scavenge any free agent rookies who might be a keeper next year. I have turned all my attention to DFS for the final week of baseball. An interesting pick for today is Jharel Cotton¬†($5,900). Cotton is coming off a groin injury and likely will be under owned. He gets a favorable matchup at home vs the Rangers who tend to strikeout a lot. In his last start against the Rangers he had 9 k‚Äôs in 6 innings. Probably the biggest factor to this equation is Cotton is from St. Thomas Virgin Islands who was recently devastated by hurricane Irma. Cotton is going to be pitching with a lot of emotion today. This would be more of a tournament play as there is always risk playing a guy coming off interest.
