Welington Castillo stayed hot with a 19 DKFP performance last night, and we also saw Michael Conforto go 3-3 with with a home run. We have a 15-game slate tonight, that should provide a lot of action. Let’s check out the hottest hitters on the evening.

Ryan Braun (RIGHT) (MIL vs. CHC) – $4,400

Opposing Pitcher: Kyle Hendricks

I wanted to roll him out yesterday, but he wasn’t playing. Today we get all of the Ryan Braun and his .520 BA over the last week. Braun has put up two consecutive 20+ DKFP outings and has a handedness wOBA of .386 today. He’s been on fire lately, and I will definitely have plenty of him across my tournament lineups.


Anthony Rizzo (LEFT) (CHC vs. MIL) – $4,900

Opposing Pitcher: Jimmy Nelson

Rizzo won’t be the only Cubs player you see on this list. He had a great game during his last outing, going 2 for 4 with 2 home runs. Rizzo has had a hit in 4 out of the last 5 games. Nelson has had a good season for the Brewers so far with a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings. Nelson has a .816 OPS against LHBs, and they have been his one weakness this season. I like Rizzo’s handedness wOBA of .398 and will have a Cubs stack today.


Dexter Fowler (SWITCH) (CHC vs. MIL) – $4,500

Opposing Pitcher: Jimmy Nelson

Fowler didn’t have the 2 homers like Rizzo, but he did go 2 for 4 during his last outing. Fowler is hitting .385 on the season with a .419 SLG%. He has consistently got on base and has over 10 DKFP in the 4 of his last 6 games. Like I said above, Nelson has been good this season, but the Cubs have been a lot better. Fowler is batting .400 with 3 RBIs in the last 7 days, and I think he’ll continue that tonight.

Michael Conforto (LEFT) (NYM vs. CIN) – $3,600

Opposing Pitcher: Brandon Finnegan

It would be a shame if I didn’t pay homage to Conforto tonight. He went 3 for 3 with a homer last night, and he is now hitting .333 on the season with 3 home runs. In the last 7 days, he’s hitting .409 with 5 RBIs and 2 home runs. I will certainly have some Conforto tonight.


Yasmany Tomas (RIGHT) (ARI vs. STL) – $3,100

Opposing Pitcher: Carlos Martinez

USATSI_9256778_168381090_lowres

Tomas has 19 and 20 DKFPs in the last two outings. He also has a hit in the last 11 games. Martinez is 3-0 on the season and has a 2.70 ERA, but Yasmany has been swinging the bat well. I’ll definitely have some exposure to him and Welington Castillo (mentioned earlier).
