10/13:Milwaukee Brewers infielder Travis Shaw and catcher Erik Kratz are both in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu. Shaw is playing second base and hitting sixth, while Kratz is behind the plate and is hitting seventh. Neither player has ever faced Ryu. Shaw hit just .209/.303/.296 with two of his 32 homers against southpaws, so he's a weak DFS play against a pitcher who has been excellent all year. Kratz hit just .236/.280/.355 on the year with six homers in 203 at-bats, so he's a lotto ticket in DFS.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
