Rollins Still Has Life Left, Especially for Monday
Man, those Masters fans will cheer for anyone or anything, huh? Hopefully, you don’t own Johnny Cueto in any of your standard leagues, as the injuries keep piling up this season. That’s the good thing about daily games though, new day, new lineup, no players with injuries! Let’s deal ‘em up!
Jimmy Rollins, PHI – Rollins doesn’t even have a price reflective of his ability and the thinness of his position. He’s just $3,800 on FanDuel and $4,500 on DraftKings. Meanwhile, Rollins is 6-for-18 with two HRs against Bronson Arroyo. Rollins is a must-have this Monday.
Adam Lind, TOR – Here’s a name you haven’t heard in a while. Lind put together a great season in 2009, then still smacked HRs, but stopped hitting for average and fell off altogether last season. However, Lind is 6-for-16 with a homer and six RBI against Gavin Floyd. With $2,800 FD and $3,600 DK prices, it’s hard to find a sneakier play.
Maicer Izturis, TOR – Unless you want to talk about his teammate Izturis. Actually, Izturis might get more respect at this point, but his price isn’t reflective of that. In FD, he’s just $2,900 and can slide in at 3B. Over on DK, he’s relatively cheap at $3,500 too. Izturis is 8-for-24 lifetime against Floyd (.333 AVG), and is one of the most inexpensive infielders out there.
Lucas Duda, NYM – Few players have the power that Duda does, and with a road game in the good ol’ Rockies, few have a better shot at going deep tonight. It’s a great lefty on righty matchup and Duda will cost you just $3,100 FD/$3,700 DK.
Other Good Deals – Joe Mauer $3,400 FD, Josh Rutledge $3,600 FD, Michael Cuddyer $4,400 FD/$4,300 DK (been hot and facing soft-tossing Dillon Gee at home), Nick Hundley $3,000 DK
Jacoby Ellsbury, BOS – Ells will cost a pretty penny, but you want to save that change. He is just 3-for-17 against Jeremy Hellickson with no extra base hits. No reason to spend big here.
Jose Bautista, TOR – He can be a fantasy monster, but you want no part of Bautista tonight. Unlike his lesser teammates, Joey Bats struggles mightily against Floyd with a 1-for-12 track record with just one XB hit and one RBI.
Coco Crisp, OAK – Crisp still costs more than he should on most sites, and as much as I rag on him, it still hasn’t changed. There is more reason to avoid Crisp, as he is 1-for-15 against Erik Bedard with no SBs.
Andrew McCutchen, PIT/Matt Holliday, STL – Save your big dollars by avoiding both of these big names facing off today. Cutch is 2-for-11 with no XB hits against Lance Lynn, and Holliday is 2-for-15 against James McDonald.
