Reminder: Always double check the lineup card before rosters lock to make sure that a player you've chosen to roster is playing that day, and check the weather to make sure your players won't get rained out of their game.

FanDuel has made some tweaks to their scoring criteria for 2016. Check that out here. FanDuel is also only available to play for money in specific states. See their website for more details to see if FanDuel is playable for cash in your home state.

The Early Slate: 

The guy I'm looking to target in cash games is, Noah Syndergaard ($10,500). His price tag may be high, but you have to love the spot he's in today. For starters: Mr. Thor will be pitching at home. This not only gives him a favorable environment to pitch in, but it also hurts the D'Backs. They are going from a hitter’s, to a pitchers park -- which will take a toll on their numbers. The other reason why I love Thor is because of his upside. Not only does he own a 28.7 K% in his career, but the D'Backs also strike out a ton! They own a whooping 23.2 K% (5th in MLB) on the year, which just gives up double-digit strikeout upside. And to put the icing on the cake -- the Mets are heavy favorites in this contest. Thor has an excellent matchup and is a guy I'm looking to target in cash games. 

The Late Slate: 

The guy I'm looking to target in cash games is, Corey Kluber ($10,900). Not only does he have one of the best offenses in the league backing him up, but he also has a terrific matchup. He will be going up against the Angels, who have been ice-cold as of late. In their last 14 contests, they own a .281 wOBA along with 81 wRC+. They are having trouble getting on base and scoring runs, which is why I'm all over, Kluber. And don't forget: Since 2014, Kluber owns a 2.92 xFIP and 27.4 K%. He's been one of the most dominant pitchers in the game, so go ahead and plug him into your cash lineups!
