A full 15-game slate with no weather issues? Woohoo!
Tonight marks the halfway point of the Tout Daily regular season as this is the second week of Period 3. Here is who a few of the participants are trusting for big points.
Anthony Aniano (Rotoballer, @AAnianoFantasy)
Pitcher: Nick Pivetta – Since May 1st he’s allowed 9 runs in 38.1 IP, that’s a 2.11 ERA with 36 stirkeouts and a win in 5 of his last 6 starts. Tonight he faces the A’s who are 29th in runs per game with 3.32 runs per game.
Hitter: Aaron Judge – He’s the chalk play but right now you use him every single night!!!
Steve Gardner (USAToday Fantasy Sports, @SteveAGardner)
Pitcher: Logan Webb – I don’t feel bad picking on the Royals, who rank 27th in scoring. Even though they don’t strike out a lot, I like Webb to go deep and get the win.
Hitter: J.D. Martinez – Martinez has a 1.152 OPS vs. lefties this season. Although I don’t expect Jared Koenig to last long, I’m confident the Bosox can score early and often.
Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis)
Pitcher: Gerrit Cole – Gerrit Cole ($10,500) is coming off the worst outing of the season with allowing 7 runs. Look for Cole to bounce back at home against Tampa Bay tonight.
Hitter: Aaron Judge – Here comes the Judge. The jury is not out on if he can deliver on a consistant basis. Lock and load for tonight against opposing pitcher, Corey Kluber.
Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola)
Pitcher: Tyler Mahle – On the road against the DBacks who have the fourth highest K% versus RHP
Hitter: Oscar Gonzalez – Running a pair of three man stacks, CLE and BOS. Gonzalez hitting fifth in Coors is a free square
Jeff Erickson (Rotowire, @Jeff_Erickson)
Pitcher: Dylan Cease – Cease against the Tigers seems like a high-percentage rostered play, but I’m not clever enough to avoid it.
Hitter: Wilmer Flores – Lefty-killer against a dead-meat lefty (Kris Bubic).
