MLB | Must-Haves | 5/23/17

George Springer (DK: $4,300 FD: $3,500): For our first Must-Have of the night we will head to Houston where George Springer and the Astros take on right-hander Jordan Zimmermann and the Detroit Tigers.

MLB | Must-Haves | 5/22/17

Max Kepler (DK: $4,000 FD: $3,100): The Twins’ outfielder hailing from Berlin, Germany makes it in today as our first Must-Have due to the huge advantage at the plate he will have against Orioles’ right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. Jimenez has shown to be very exploitable to left-handed hitters this season with his 4.60 HR/9, 9.74 FIP, 44% fly-ball rate, 40% HR/FB, and 40.4% hard hit rate allowed to them. Jimenez also…

SOC | Must-Haves | 5/20/17

Early Slate Blerim Dzemaili (DK: $7,300): Our Must-Have from the early late is the Swiss international midfielder who had an immediate impact for Montreal in his first game on loan from Bologna.  Dzemaili had a strong season in Serie A, with eight goals and three assists, so to get a player of his talents to join MLS is a great boost for Montreal, who had been lacking offensive firepower with…
