Six-Game Slate

Pitcher

Dakota Hudson, St. Louis Cardinals – $8,200

Hudson’s strikeouts numbers are something to be desired, but he pitches well enough to walk away with a win.

He’ll be facing the Pirates, which automatically makes him a must-start.

Catcher 

Roberto Perez, Cleveland Indians – $2,700

Perez has been hitless in his past four games, but that should change his luck with his matchup against the Detroit Tigers.

Save your money on other positions and take a dart throw on catchers, especially Perez. He is cheap and is projected to be owned in less than one percent of DraftKings lineups.

First Base

Luke Voit, New York Yankees – $4,900

Voit is having an up-and-down September but has produced 16 RBIs, 12 runs, and five home runs.

He has been electrifying the Blues Jays all season (more than power lines).

Against Toronto, Voit has a .368 AVG, seven hits, seven RBIs, six runs, and three home runs.

Second Base

Jose Altuve, Houston Astros – $3,600

Altuve is $2,000 cheaper than top-dog Brandon Lowe and had similar production in his past ten games; Altuve had seven runs and seven hits in those games (Lowe had ten hits and five runs).

You’ll get a reliable second baseman who provides decent production with the possibility of having a big game.

Third Base

Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Texas Rangers – $3,600

Kiner-Falefa has been fantastic in September with a .407 AVG and .894 OPS. His production has been too bad either, 24 hits, nine runs, and one home run. Houston’s lefty Framber Valdez will not extinguish his hot September.

Kiner-Falefa has crushed lefty pitchers all season. He has a .429 AVG with 11 runs, five RBIs, and one home run against southpaws this season.

Shortstop

Corey Seager, Los Angeles Dodgers – $5,300

Spend your extra money on Corey Seager.

Yes, he is one of the top three options at shortstop, but he is worth every penny.

In his past ten games, Seager had 11 hits, nine RBIs, five runs, and three home runs. His success should continue in Coors Field.

In 25 games at Coors Field, he had 25 hits, 20 runs, 14 RBIs, and four home runs. It would be best if you always started a hot hitter in Coors Field.

Outfield

Tommy Edman, St.Louis Cardinals – $4,200

Edman has been leading off for the Red Birds recently, and it’s been working for him. He has six runs, six hits, five walks, and two RBIs in the leadoff spot. His matchup against the Pirates is going to be beneficial to people who start him in lineups.

He will be facing off against Steven Brault, whom Edman has had success against in previous meetings. In five at-bats, he had three hits and one RBI against Brault. The way Brault has been pitching recently, Edman’s dominance will continue.

In his previous two starts, Brault allowed 12 hits, seven earned runs, and two home runs.

About Travis Argo

I'm a die hard fan of teams that constantly disappointment me every season. So, I write about fantasy sports to forget my sorrows. That's hard sometimes because I'm a Pacers correspondent for Fantasypros.com. I also recently graduated with honors from UNCC. Go Niners...I guess.
