Daily Fantasy Leagues - FanDuel Lineup Picks (7/1)

 

P: Henderson Alvarez ($7,600): Alvarez has been an absolute beast at home this season. In eight starts this year in Miami, he is 4-1 with three complete-game shutouts and a staggering 1.44 ERA. He is averaging over seven innings in those starts, and he's struck out 35 batters. Tonight he faces a Phillies team that struggles on the road and is also top 10 in baseball in strikeouts.

 

C: Yadier Molina ($3,200): At first glance, the matchup doesn't seem great, since Molina has been struggling lately and Lincecum is coming off of another no-hitter. But this may be the perfect contrarian play tonight, as Molina has hit Lincecum well over the year (7-for-17 with just one strikeout) and it is likely Lincecum is a bit fatigued from his last outing.

 

Anthony Rizzo 20121B: Anthony Rizzo ($3,600): Another player in Molina’s mold tonight is Rizzo, who has struggled over his last few games but has the potential for a big game tonight. He is facing right-hander Clay Buchholz, who has struggled mightily with his command this season. That could mean good things for Rizzo, who has 49 walks to go along with his 31 extra-base hits.

 

2B: Omar Infante ($3,100): Infante has been streaking lately, with hits in six of his past seven games going into last night. Despite not having a ton of extra-base power, he has still managed to drive in 40 runs this year, including six over his previous four games. A matchup against the inconsistent Ricky Nolasco should help Infante put up numbers.

 

SS: Erick Aybar ($3,500): Aybar is having a great under-the-radar season with season with 40 runs, 41 RBI and six homers. He is also hitting a solid .283, and although that has dropped in the last few weeks, his power and run production numbers have gone up. In those two weeks, Aybar has his two homers, scored eight runs and driven in five while stealing three bases. Aybar has also been helped by hitting behind the power trio of Trout, Pujols and Hamilton, which affords him plenty of chances to drive in runs.

 

3B: Lonnie Chisenhall ($3,600): Hitting an amazing .350 on the year means Chisenhall has done pretty much everything right so far.  Looking a little closer, though, we see that he's done most of that damage against right-handed pitching. On the year, he has seven of his eight home runs and 29 of his 36 RBI against righties. Tonight he faces Josh Beckett who has been solid but is dealing with some fatigue/soreness issues lately-- Beckett may not be at the top of his game.

 

OF: Michael Brantley ($4,000): I am going with yet another Cleveland bat tonight here, due in large part to his career success against Beckett. In their meetings, Brantley is 5-for-12 with three doubles and just one strike out. It would be understandable if you wanted to fade Indian bats tonight, but they are likely to be underowned tonight and could push you to the top of your GPPs.
