MLB Lineup Advice: Outfielders (Saturday)
Michael Brantley, TOR @ CLE – FD $3,600 DK $4,900
The Cleveland Indians are going to have an offensive field day with the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend because the Blue Jays rank 29th in team ERA. Michael Brantley proved my theory on Friday night by going 2-for-5 with a home run, 2-RBI, and scoring two runs. Brantley looks to be a great play Saturday night against the Blue Jays
Giancarlo Stanton, PHI @ MIA – FD $5,100 DK $4,900
The Miami Marlins are playing the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend, and Giancarlo Stanton was able to have some success on Friday night by scoring 4.25 points on FanDuel. I realize that these aren’t astounding numbers, but I look for Stanton to have a huge games Saturday and Sunday.
Justin Upton, COL @ SDP – FD $3,700 DK $4,000
Justin Upton had a monster game on Friday against the Colorado Rockies. Upton went 3-for-4 with 2-RBI, 2 stolen bases, and he scored 3 times. The Rockies are ranked 26th in team ERA, so this provides a great matchup for all Padres players, especially Justin Upton.
Marcell Ozuna, PHI @ MIA – FD $2,800 DK $3,800
Like I previously stated, The Miami Marlins have a great matchup against one of the worst pitching teams in all of baseball in the Philadelphia Phillies. Marcell Ozuna went 4-for-4 on Friday night with 3 doubles and an RBI. Ozuna was on fire on Friday night, and I look for Stanton and Ozuna to have huge games on Saturday night.
Jacoby Ellsbury, NYY @ BOS – FD $4,200 DK $5,100
The New York Yankees won their game on Friday night off of Alex Rodriguez’s 660th career homerun. Another reason they won, the Boston Red Sox have the worst team ERA, which means they have the worst pitching staff in baseball. Anytime a player like Ellsbury plays the worst pitching team in baseball, he is close to a must start. I would make sure Ellsbury is in your lineup on Saturday.
Other Players to Consider:
Wil Myers, COL @ SDP – FD $3,500 DK $4,200
Jose Bautista, TOR @ CLE – FD $4,900 DK $4,800
Matt Kemp, COL @ SDP – FD $3,700 DK $4,600
