Rose' 8/28 MLB DFS Plays

This is a massive slate, where when I first looked at it last I didn't like it. The more I've dug into it, the more I liked it. I like it enough to throw a lineup in the $535 Pickle single entry. That lineup will consist of my core 4 and one of my top arms. Overall I think pitching ownership should be spread out 4 good arms at the top.

Nola/Max - I guess we can group these guys together considering they put up a combined 100 points on FanDuel. Max is crazy expensive, so if I were to pick one it would be Nola. Also, the fact that he's put up back to back 61 point monster scores helps. (Risk factor 4)

Flaherty - extremely consistent in his last 4 starts. He's had 4 straight quality starts, while also striking out at least 7 and 3 wins. He's limited hitters to just a .207 average at home, while striking out 29.6% of batters. (Risk factor 4)

Buehler - another extremely consistent arm over the past month. He's struck out 38 batters, while allowing just 4 runs, and picking up 4 quality starts in his last 5 starts. LA beats the snot out of Texas tonight as well, so he should be in line for a W. (Risk factor 4)

Freeland - He's been so tough against lefties on the road, allowing just a .184 average and 1 home run, while striking them out at a 28.2% clip. He's pitched well in August striking out 36 batters in 31 innings, and allowed 2 home runs. He's also had 4 straight quality starts. (Risk factor 5)

Junis - My guy tonight for most of my lines. He's dominated Detroit this year.....

.188 average

1.64 ERA

21.7% k rate

0.82 whip

84.3% left of base

27.4% hard contact

He's cheap, and the salary relief will help us fit some big bats we want, that are in great spots.

Other guys I'm ok with rostering

Dodgers - More than likely the chalk tonight. Jurado is a ground ball pitcher so our best bet it to take the fly ball hitters. (Machado still a good play)

Over the past 14 days

Turner 58.5%

Dozier 54.3%

Joc Jamz 52.9%

Grandal 44.4%

Muncy 38.5%

Puig 38.1%

Milwaukee - Desclafani struggles a bit against lefties allowing 12 home runs, with 6 of those coming at home. Thames, Yelich, Shaw, Aguilar and Moose all coming in with a .357 xWoba

Boston - Urena has given up a .299 average and 4 home runs to lefties on the road this year. It's hot in Boston and Urena can't hide behind the pitcher park in Miami.

Tampa - We know Teheran's problem is lefties at home, but it doesn't help that 5 rays come into SunTrust with over a .400 xWoba

Wendle .492

Pham .429

Adames .408

Kiermaier .493

Duffy .427

Image placeholder title

Houston - This team is on fire, and need to finish off Oakland to give themselves from breathing room in the AL West. Over the past 7 days, they're hitting .341 as a team with 9 home runs and only a 13% k rate.
