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.

Pitcher

Danny Duffy ($9,600) faces an Athletics offense that ranks in the bottom 6 against lefties this year with an 85 wRC+, and they're ranked as the 5th least productive offense in the second half with an 84 wRC+. They don't strike out much with a K% just under 19% vs lefties, but they've largely been punchless. Duffy has a 3.13 ERA, 3.42 FIP and 27% strikeout rate and should be a good bet to prevent runs and be in decent position to get the win against a team with the 5th worst run differential in baseball.

Hitting stack

The Diamondbacks, who rank as the #1 offense vs LHP by OPS at .816, face the well below average Jorge de la Rosa in very hitter friendly Chase Field. de la Rosa has a 5 ERA, 5 FIP and is allowing a .276/.356/.460 line to righties with a similar road slash of .284/.357/.437 to righties, so it isn't entirely Coors Field related.

Paul Goldschmidt ($3,700) has been the best Diamondbacks hitter vs lefties this year with a 176 wRC+ and .239 ISO and has a history of being one of the biggest lefty mashers in the game over the last few seasons. Catcher Welington Castillo ($2,900) has hit lefties to a way above average level for catchers this year with a 142 wRC+ and .272 ISO. Yasmany Tomas ($2,600) has hit LHP to a 175 wRC+ and .336 ISO. Rickie Weeks ($2,300) has hit LHP to a 167 wRC+ and .369 ISO in about 50 less PAs than the others. This stack is relatively inexpensive with 3 of the 4 batters priced under 3k and leaves some room to fit in a higher priced pitcher like Duffy into a lineup.
