DFS: FanDuel Top Plays For Monday June 30th

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The daily fantasy grind never stops. Here are Dug Fister's recommended plays for Monday's FanDuel lineups.

I hope everyone had a safe weekend, we are officially past the halfway mark of the season, and got roughly three months left of baseball.  I know it's sad - but look at the bright side, the NFL/NBA/NHL seasons are right around the corner (no not really).  I am going to close my intro there, make it short and sweet.

All players' prices based on FanDuel values.

SP - Anibal Sanchez, Detroit Tigers, $8,500 - While everyone takes Mat Latos tonight against the Padres - which is fine but, we will go with Sanchez.  Sanchez has stymied the A's through out his career, and has really come to form as of late.  Hopefully he goes deep enough to earn us some major points.

C - Kurt Suzuki, Minnesota Twins, $2,200 - I am not really crazy about any catcher options tonight, so Suzuki or any minimum priced catcher will do just fine.  Suzuki hits for average and gets on base at a good rate, so at worst he will get you a couple points.

1B - Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs, $3,600 - Rizzo cooled off over the weekend, but the Cubs face Jake Peavy tonight, and I expect him to get lit (as usual).  Rizzo is a great play since he walks a lot, and hits for power.  Should be a nice night for him.

2B - Ian Kinsler, Detroit Tigers, $4,400 - Kinsler has six straight multi hit games (games he started), and he mashes lefties, this is a no brainer, even though he's facing Scott Kazmir.

3B - Manny Machado, Baltimore Orioles, $2,900 - Machado has been on fire since being moved down to the 7th spot, he has three homers in the last four games.  He makes an excellent play here against Joe Saunders, just make sure Machado isn't suspended.

SS - Ian Desmond, Washington Nationals, $3,000 - The Nationals might be my favorite play other than Baltimore today, since they face rookie left hander Yohan Flande, who doesn't sound like a pitcher - more like a dessert.  Desmond should have the platoon advantage, although most his jacks have come against righties.  I like Desmond to go deep tonight.

OF - Nelson Cruz, Baltimore Orioles, $4,000 - Another Oriole lefty killer, Cruz should have the advantage against Saunders tonight, and hopefully give a good return on his high price tag.  You can swap Cruz out for Adam Jones who is $100 more if you like.

OF - Kole Calhoun, Los Angeles Angels, $3,400 - Calhoun is going under the radar, and is underpriced.   A great matchup against Hector Noesi in Chicago for Calhoun, who gives you power and speed, not to mention he bats in front of Trout, Pujols and Josh Hamilton.

OF - Matt Joyce, Tampa Bay Rays, $2,800 - I doubt Joyce will repeat his performance from yesterday, but he is taking a trip to Yankee stadium, and that short porch plus David Phelps might be good reason to expect an encore.  Remember Joyce is a super streaky player, his power comes in bunches, he might be someone to monitor through the series in the Bronx.

As always be sure to check the weather in the city your players are playing in. Don't forget to check lineups either, nothing worse than having a rostered player on your squad that isn't in the lineup
