Tout Daily: Stacking the Colorado Chalkies

This is it, the final week of the final period of Tout Daily. This time next week we’ll be commencing the modified Survivor Tournament to crown the first official 2021 Tout Wars champion!

Here are some of the Tout’s picks.

Zach Steinhorn (CreativeSports2, @zachsteinhorn)

Pitcher: Alek Manoah – In three starts since returning from the IL, Manoah is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Hitter: Jorge Polanco – We’re barely halfway through August and Polanco already has six homers, 13 RBIs and 12 runs this month. Why is he only $3,500 on Draftkings?

Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola)

Pitcher: Nathan Eovaldi – Likely no Golden Ticket for the second straight year, but I’m going down fighting with a seven-inning complete game shutout!

Hitter: Frank Schwindel – Stacking the Colorado Chalkies so need some salary relief

Steve Gardner (USAToday Fantasy Sports, @SteveAGardner)

Pitcher: Logan Webb – He hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs in any start since early May (and that was at Coors!) The Mets’ free fall continues …

Hitter: Connor Joe – He’s no ordinary … Connor! He’s been hot, he’s hitting leadoff in Coors Field and he’ll cost you only $2800 to slot at first base or outfield.

Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis)

Pitcher: Framber Valdez – The lefty needs to lower his walk rate, but a nice matchup tonight at Kansas City should do the trick. His ERA is now close to 3.00 and he’s 8-3 on the season.

Hitter: Dansby Swanson – He’s been playing lights out this month and I see it continuing tonight at Miami against SP Alcantara.
