I got good news - we don't have Coors Field on the card tonight, so everyone actually has to be smart tonight. All jokes aside DFS is so much better when the Rockies aren't at Coors, it levels out the playing field. With that being said, we do have a few good matchups in hitters' parks tonight. I hope everyone enjoyed their first day of the FanDuel DFS articles, and for those who play on DraftKings, the picks still apply, you can use those players on there.
All players' prices based on FanDuel values.
P - Mat Latos, Cincinnati Reds, $7,600 - Latos will look to rebound from Friday's effort against the Jays where he allowed five runs, which lead to a triumphant comeback by the Blue Jays. Tonight he has an easier task at hand - the Chicago Cubs. Latos is a front of the line starter, arguably an ace, and this is a favorable matchup for him.
C - Dioner Navarro, Toronto Blue Jays, $2,600 - Navarro is quietly having a nice June, he hit a home run yesterday, and is a very affordable catcher. He hits for average, some power, and no speed - although watching him run is quite entertaining.
1B - Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds, $3,500 - Votto is a perfect play tonight, as he has owned Edwin Jackson throughout his career. Votto hasn't hit for much power this season, but I won't be shocked if he hit a dinger tonight.
2B - Robinson Cano, Seattle Mariners, $4,200 - As I am writing this I have no idea idea what Cano did for us today, but he gets to abuse Clay Bucholz today on his first start returning from his DL stint. Cano is very familiar with the Boston pitcher, since they have faced one another quite often during his days in pinstripes.
3B - David Wright, New York Mets, $3,800 - I don't play David Wright often, although I should play him more - he burned me big time in a $100,000 tourney, and I haven't forgiven him since. Tonight a Brad Mills of the Oakland Athletics faces him, and when a crappy lefty plays Wright, I should start playing him.
SS - Jimmy Rollins, Philadelphia Phillies, $2,700 - I do know Rollins is facing Henderson Alvarez tonight, who has been great this year - but he's only been great at home. I think Rollins has the advantage in this matchup, and at a price this low i can't pass on a power/speed combo shortstop.
OF 1 - Michael Brantley, Cleveland Indians, $4,000 - Brantley crushes RHP, and is playing a hitters park (Chase Field AKA Coors of the desert). I love this play today, and expect big things from Brantley.
OF 2 - Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels, $3,400 - My next two players come from the Angels, they play the twins, and face right hander Yohan Pino - a guy who played well in his debut, but is a nobody. I really like the Angels tonight, and will use as many bats of theirs as can in GPPs.
OF 3 - Kole Calhoun, Los Angeles Angels, $3,200 - Calhoun hits for average, power, and has speed, he bats in front of Trout, Pujols, and Hamilton - he can do some major damage if he gets on base. As mentioned with Hamilton I love the Angels today, and at this price its sort of a value.
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
