MLB DFS Flyballs and Fastballs 9/7 MAIN

Paul DeJong
Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

11 games tonight with no major weather issues. Nice weather in Atlanta.



Chris Bassett

Bassett has been solid most of the year and prior to his last start he has gone 6+ innings in 6 of 7 starts. He gets a nice matchup vs the Tigers tonight with a current lineup that strikes out close to 30% vs RHP. The wind is blowing out at 15 MPH, but this Tiger lineup has limited power and the larger park should help as well. Looking at 6-7 innings with a run and 7 Ks.

Joey Lucchesi

This year Lucchessi has been very good at home limiting batters to under a HR/9 with a 2.84 ERA. He faces a Rockies team that continues to struggle on the road vs LHP striking out at a 30% clip.

Also consider: Justin Verlander – highest priced arm with the highest upside. Double digit Ks in 8 of last 9 games.



Jeff Hoffman

This is more about how bad the Padres have been as of late. 27% K rate and .212 average vs RHP over the last 30 days.  Cheap option that should go 5 innings, 3 ERs and 6 Ks. I do like some if the Padres bats but think he does well enough to pay off his salary.


Dark Horse

Aaron Brooks

Brooks has actually pitched well in his last 3 game. He does better vs LHHs with close to a 50% ground ball rate and a higher K rate. The Rangers have not hit well vs RHP over the past 30 days with a .222 average and 25% K rate.  I don’t think he comes out of this clean, but can see him going 5 innings aloqita run or 2 and striking out 6.



Oakland As vs Jordan Zimmerman

The As are at home tonight vs Zimmerman who has actually been decent as of late, but the As have a lot of power in the lineup and the wind is blowing out at 15 MPH. Just about everyone in the lineup has over a .200 ISO vs RHP on the year.

*Chapman, Olson, Canha and Brown with Khris Davis for value.


Atlanta Braves vs Austin Voth

The Braves are at home with 90 degree weather and some wind blowing out.  Braves have hit well at home vs RHP as of late.

*Acuna, Albies, Freeman, Donaldson with Riley as value play.


**The Dodgers also have a good matchups as well and can be considered

*Pederson, Pollack, Smith, Seager
