Ben Hancock’s favorite GPP plays!!
- Jose Berrios – Berrios is by far my top pitching option on today’s slate going up against a Detroit team that has cooled off over the last few games. Berrios has pitched like a man possessed at home over his career and in this cake match up I see no reason any of that should change this afternoon. Max is in a fantastic spot himself but ill take the $800 dollar savings and role with Berrios.
- Vince Velasquez – Velasquez is for anyone feeling a little wild this afternoon and looking for someone who should be pretty low owned with huge upside. I do think he’s slightly overpriced on DK but going up against the Marlins in of the most pitcher friendly parks in baseball is tough for me to ignore.
- Jakob Junis – We have seen so far over the course of the season that the Indians are a team we want to target when it comes to choosing pitchers. They struggled mightily against Keller and Bailey who neither in my opinion are as good as Junis. I’m going to try and not overthink things here and I suggest you do that same thing. Just target the Indians until they show us something different.
STACKS (fav in order)
- BOS – I expect the Red Sox to absolutely blow their load this afternoon. They are my top stack of the day!
- MIN – The Twins are one of my favorite teams to stack simply because they are almost always low owned and the bottom of lineup does a great job of rolling it over which is what has to happen for our stacks to be successful. They have the 4th highest team total on the slate and I think Zimmerman really struggles against this lineup.
- PHI – They have one of the best lineups in baseball if not the best in my opinion. They should be lower owned strictly due to them being in Miami. If this were anywhere else they would be extreme chalk.
