MLB Lineup Advice: Outfield (Monday)
Josh Reddick, OAK @ MIN – FD $3,900 DK $4,700
Josh Reddick has been Reddick-ulous as of late. Reddick has gone 6-for-12 in the Oakland A’s series against the Texas Rangers with 2 home runs, 8-RBI, and 4 runs scored. Reddick is on absolute fire, and his fantasy stock is rising quickly. Reddick is going to be a fantastic play against the Minnesota Twins on Monday as Minnesota is ranked 18th in total team ERA.
Jacoby Ellsbury, NYY @ TOR – FD $4,200 DK $5,000
The New York Yankees are coming off of a fresh sweep of the Boston Red Sox. Now the Yankees are facing the worst pitching team in baseball in the Toronto Blue Jays. Jacoby Ellsbury went 7-for-13 in the series against the Red Sox, so I have Ellsbury in my lineup this entire series because the Yankees as a team are going to have an offensive showcase.
Brett Gardner, NYY @ TOR – FD $3,400 DK $4,600
Brett Gardner went 5-for-14, which is by no means horrible, but it is not outstanding fantasy numbers. However, Gardner did have 13 FanDuel points on Sunday night against the Boston Red Sox. Gardner had a great game, and led the Yankees to a victory with a home run, 3-RBI, and 2 stolen bases. Now the Yankees have a great matchup against the worst pitching team, the Toronto Blue Jays, and you need to have the Yankees outfield in your lineup because of this great matchup.
Justin Upton, SDP @ SFG – FD $4,000 DK $3,800
The San Diego Padres had an offensive showcase against the Colorado Rockies over the weekend, and Justin Upton was right in the middle of it. Upton went 7-for-12 in the series with a home run, 7-RBI, and 5 runs scored. Upton’s fantasy value has jumped up after this series because of his production. I have Upton as a great play on Monday night against the San Francisco Giants.
Charlie Blackmon, ARI @ COL – FD $4,300 DK $4,600
Charlie Blackmon had a great two games against the San Diego Padres as he went 5-for-9 with 3 home runs, 3-RBI, and scoring 3 runs. Blackmon has been hitting the ball like crazy, and I look for Blackmon to have a huge series against the Diamondbacks because the Diamondbacks pitching staff ranks 20th in all of baseball.
Other Players to Consider:
Nelson Cruz, SEA @ LAA – FD $5,400 DK $4,400
Norichika Aoki, SDP @ SFG – FD $2,900 DK $3,700
Ender Inciarte, ARI @ COL – FD $3,500 DK $3,900
