MLB Lineup Advice: Outfielders (Tuesday)
Jacoby Ellsbury, TAM @ NYY – FD $3,700 DK $4,700
The New York Yankees have been on fire at the plate. There have been multiple players that have been hitting and scoring runs like crazy, and one of those guys is Jacoby Ellsbury. Ellsbury has a hit in 7 out of his last 10 games. In that span he has scored 7 times and has 3 RBI. Ellsbury also is a base stealer, which adds major fantasy value to his stock. I look for Ellsbury to have a good game tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Bryce Harper, WAS @ ATL – FD $4,100 DK $4,200
The Washington Nationals lost on Monday night to the Atlanta Braves, but I look for their luck to change tonight. Bryce Harper has a career batting average of .438 against Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran. Other Nationals players have an excellent career batting average against Teheran. Bryce Harper is going to have a big night tonight, so I would make sure he is in your starting lineups tonight.
Starling Marte, PIT @ CHC – FD $4,000 DK $5,200
The Pittsburgh Pirates won five straight games before losing in Chicago last night 4-0. The Pirates offense seems to be clicking somewhat, but it didn’t look too pretty last night. However, the last time the Cubs and Pirates met, Starling Marte went 4-for-8 with 2 home runs with 3-RBI and 4 runs scored. I look for Marte to continue his success against the Cubs tonight in Chicago.
J.D. Martinez, DET @ MIN – FD $3,400 DK $4,600
The Detroit Tigers were able to get the win against the Minnesota Twins on Monday night 5-4. J.D. Martinez went 2-for-3 on Sunday and scored a run. Martinez had a decent game on Sunday and Monday scoring 3.25 and 3.75 points on FanDuel respectively. Martinez is going to get some hits tonight for sure, so he will be a good play tonight.
Matt Holliday, PHI @ STL – FD $3,400 DK $4,600
The St. Louis Cardinals have been playing well as of late, and are sitting atop the National League Central. They also have a fantastic matchup this week against the Philadelphia Phillies. Matt Holiday has had a solid past couple of games. On Monday night, Holliday went 1-for-2 with an RBI and 2 walks. The Philadelphia Phillies are one of the worst teams in baseball, so I look for Holliday to have a fantastic series against the Phillies.
Other Players to Consider:
Billy Hamilton, MIL @ CIN – FD $3,800 DK $4,500
Wil Myers, HOU @ SDP – FD $3,200 DK $4,200
Yoenis Cespedes, DET @ MIN – FD $3,200 DK $4,900
