FScore-160x320We have a short seven-game slate for the FantasyScore Challenge, Monday. On the pitching side, Chris Sale ($9400) and Johnny Cueto ($9300) head up the list. Sale continues to rack up the strikeouts but is coming off back-to-back games allowing seven earned runs. Cueto only struck out two Tigers in his Royals debut last week and now he faces those same Tigers again. On the cheaper side, the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez ($6900) has spun together seven straight starts allowing two or fewer runs. Jon Niese ($6700) has been good as of late, short one start against the Dodgers. The new Mets offense improves his chances of earning a win. I am going to start with Gio and Niese to see what kind of team I can build and then explore using Cueto for Niese.

 

On the hitting side, the Mariners' Nelson Cruz ($6200) continues on a tear. Cruz has seven multi-hit games in his past nine, including seven home runs. Equally as hot as Cruz is the Orioles' Chris Davis ($4700). Davis has hit nine home runs and driven in 25 runs in his past 17 games.

598x60-tout-wars

Week 2 of the final sequence of the Tout Wars Daily contest at FanDuel, and I have a little ground to pick up, being about 40 points below the leaders, so I am making a gamble pitching move on a day when there are more great pitching choices than, as we used to say, Carters had little liver pills.

I did choose to go with Lance Lynn ($9300), going against the Brewers and their somewhat paltry .293 OBP versus right-handers, rather than the higher-priced Clayton Kershaw ($13,400) and Gerrit Cole ($10,500), who are facing one another, or Sonny Gray ($10,300).

As for hitters, I do like the high on-base guys (a walk is always a good starting point), so Carlos Santana ($3000) is a nice moderately priced shot at that.

Finally, I do need to check the late rosters to see if Asdrubal Cabrera ($3400) is in the lineup following his close encounter with a ball yesterday (he has been cleared to play), but the switch-hitting shortstop has indeed been smoking hot, hitting .480-1-4 this past week.

It was crunch time for the July Tout Wars, now it is crunch month for the Touts, who have yet to qualify for the final September tournament with only three slots left to gain entrance.

FScore-160x320

Holy moly, it is opening day all over again. Just take a look at the starting pitchers scheduled for Friday. We have Clayton Kershaw ($9900) going against Gerrit Cole ($9600). Jacob deGrom ($9500), Jose Fernandez ($9600), Sonny Gray ($9500), Dallas Keuchel ($9200) and Cole Hamels ($8600). If those did not provide enough options, we also have next-tier pitchers in Lance Lynn ($8200), Jordan Zimmermann ($8000), Hisashi Iwakuma ($6900) and Andrew Heaney ($7100).

I am going to try to build a lineup around deGrom and Fernandez. If I need to drop down, I am closely looking at Heaney.

Randal Grichuk ($4500) at Milwaukee against Kyle Lohse and Paul Goldschmidt ($6500) at home against Raisel Iglesias lead the hit parade. A guy I have been watching closely as of late is Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown ($2300). Brown has four multi-hit games with three home runs and 13 RBI in his past ten games. He faces James Shields, who has allowed 21 home runs on the season. Brown provides a cheap bat that will be necessary if you plan to roster two of the stud starting pitchers. Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo ($2000) continues to be insanely inexpensive and continues to smack home runs (six in his past ten games).

FScore-160x320On Thursday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.

Here are a couple of my picks.

The evening pitching options are sparse, to say the least. Yet, there are still some good choices. Leading the way is the Cubs’ Jason Hammel ($8500), who faces the Giants at Wrigley Field, where his lifetime ERA is 2.74. In an oddity, Hammel has a career 3.07 ERA versus San Francisco, but no wins in nine starts. That may change tonight.

For a bargain play in the outfield, consider Nick Markakis ($3400) of Atlanta. Yes, he had been injured, but when healthy, he can hit. Exhibit A is Markakis’ current 12-game hitting streak, second longest in MLB. The left-handed hitter and the Braves draw unexciting rookie right-hander Jose Urena of Miami at home Thursday night. Markakis’ OPS is 100 points higher against righties this season, making him an especially promising play.

FScore-160x320Today, while subbing for Lawr, I am ready to take you on at the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.

While yesterday was pitcher rich, today is slim pickings. Therefore, I am going to go with the top two hurlers, Madison Bumgarner ($9500) and Johnny Cueto ($9300), even if they are not playing at home. If you trust prospects, Luis Severino ($5000) may be an excellent value for your money.

On the hitter’s side, from the Royals, I do like Lorenzo Cain ($5800) and Ben Zobrist ($4500). Adrian Gonzalez ($5500) has a favorable match-up.

Note that the weather forecast for Cincinnati calls for rain while summer showers are expected in Atlanta.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore.
