Tout Daily: Our Best Bib and Tucker

The slate is clean. This is the first week or Period 3 so everyone gets a fresh start in the search for an entry into the Tout Daily Championship. Here are some of the picks.

Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis)

Pitcher: Kyle Wright – Going with Kyle Wright ($10,100) tonight at home against Oakland. Wright has returned over 20 DraftKings points in three of his last four starts. With the exception of games at home versus Boston and on the road against the New York Mets, Wright has been outstanding. He’s going deep into games, averaging almost 6 innings per outing.

Hitter: Bryce Harper – Bryce Harper ($5,100) has three home runs and eight RBI in his last three games. The left-handed slugger faces right hander Jason Alexander in Milwaukee this evening.

Howard Bender (Fantasy Alarm, @RotobuzzGuy)

Pitcher: Alex Manoah – I see no reason not to pay up for a guy with a 1.98 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP against a Royals team that has a .235 wOBA with a .035 ISO over the past week

Hitter: Kyle Tucker – $4600 is a nice price for a guy who has hit safely in each of his last six games, homered in each of his last two and faces the ALWAYS hittable Chris Flexen tonight.

Phil Hertz (BaseballHQ, @prhz50)

Pitcher: Jameson Taillon – Price isn’t bad and the Yankees just keep winning. Taillon’s also been on a roll of late.

Hitter: Kyle Tucker – I’ve got nothing to add on Howard’s comments other than he’s facing a struggling Chris Flexen.

Steve Gardner (USAToday Fantasy Sports, @SteveAGardner)

Pitcher: Jose Quintana – Nothing more than fading a Tigers offense that’s scoring fewer than 3.0 runs per game, by far the worst in the majors.

Hitter: Ozzie Albies – Albies has a long history of crushing left-handed pitching. Cole Irvin, it’s your night in the barrel.

Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola)

Pitcher: Garrett Whitlock – Transition to starter complete after two straight 6 IP efforts

Hitter: Kyle Schwarber – Platoon edge on Jason Alexander in American Family Field – it’s real and it’s spectacular. Yeah, I know, but Teri Hatcher isn’t starting for Milwaukee.
