DFS: FanDuel Top Plays For Monday July 7th

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

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

Welcome back everyone to our regularly scheduled program.  I hope everyone had a great long weekend.  Who expected the biggest fireworks show to happen in Oakland, acquiring Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel.  Oakland did send a pretty package to the Chicago, which included top prospect Addison Russell, and former fantasy darling Dan Straily.  All in all the trade made sense for both teams.  We shall see how the American league treats Hammel this time around, as I'm sure Samardzjia should be fine.  Now back to business, this should be a busy DFS week, since we have all of next week off, I'll try and do one every day during the week.

All players' prices based on FanDuel values.

SP - Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle Mariners, $8,200 - Iwakuma did well for us last week, and there is no reason not to throw him back in to the mix against a struggling Twins team at home.  He has the best matchup amongst the high-mid tier, and the two elite options are too pricey.

C - Travis D'Arnaud, New York Mets, $2,300 - D'Arnaud has been pretty darn good since rejoining the Mets, having hits in 10 out of 11 games played.  Tonight he faces Mike Minor of the Braves, who hasn't really put it together yet this season.  At $2,300, almost a rock bottom price, there is plenty of upside here.

1B - Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels, $4,000 - Looks like Pujols is on one of his tirades right now.  He has been on fire all week, and with J.A. Happ coming in to town this is a great matchup for him.

2B - Kolten Wong, St. Louis Cardinals, $2,700 - Wong returned from his DL stint yesterday, and had a great game (he even homered).  Tonight he takes on Charlie Morton, a decent pitcher, but I think Wong should have the advantage here.  Wong is a on base/speed threat, which is great for this format.

3B - Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners, $4,000 - Seager is a monster at home, his home/road splits are ridiculous, and with a very hittable Kevin Correia on the mound tonight, he is my clear cut third basemen of choice.

SS - Erick Aybar, Los Angeles Angels, $3,100 - Aybar like Pujols seems to be seeing the ball really well over the past few games, and every time I draft this guy he comes up big.  Hopefully he gives you the same results.

OF - Jacoby Ellsbury, New York Yankees, $3,500 - Great matchup for Ellsbury tonight, but who know's which pitcher shows up - good Masterson, or "Let me ruin your night" Masterson.  If the latter shows up, this could be a great pick.  Either way I expect a productive night from Ellsbury.

OF - Christian Yelich, Miami Marlins, $3,700 - Batting ahead of Stanton, and McGhee is great for Yelich, who is a power/speed threat.  Tonight he heads to the desert of Arizona, and should see an uptick in value power wise.

OF - Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals, $3,500 - This is purely a spec play, I have a feeling Harper will take Tillman deep tonight.  If he does, call me Dug Fistradamus.

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
