Justin Upton (DK: $3,900 FDuel: $3,700): He’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack! Our first Must-Have of this 12-game slate will be right-handed slugger, Justin Upton. Upton has been recalled off the 60-day IL and will return to the heart of the Angles’ lineup in a juicy matchup against Edwin Jackson. In a huge sample last season, Justin Upton proved to be a reverse splits hitter with a .370 xwOBA and .235 xISO against right-handers. Edwin Jackson has been horrific overall this season, but against righties he has already given up eight homeruns in 12 innings of work. He’s allowed a .417 AVG, .577 wOBA, and .517 ISO which accounts for his horrendous 7.36 xFIP. In a DFI favorite double-reverse splits matchup, we expect Justin Upton to absolutely feast tonight. To add icing to the top of the cake, Upton went 4-5 with two homeruns and a double in his last rehab start and he is 8-21 with five extra base hits in his career against Jackson. Be sure to lock in Upton tonight as research suggests he’s in line for a huge night at a very affordable price!
Cody Bellinger (DK: $5,700 FDuel: $4,700): We don’t have to tell you how good Cody Bellinger is, but a healthy reminder never hurts. Bellinger sports a .333 ISO, .482 wOBA, and 52% hard-contact rate to right-handed pitchers. Tonight, he’ll face the struggling Tyler Beede of the San Francisco Giants who sports a 5.59 xFIP. To left-handed bats, Beede has been getting hit extremely hard, allowing a .492 wOBA and .353 ISO with 48% hard-contact. Bellinger presents upside in his hitting as well as stolen bases as he has eight on the young season. While Bellinger has shown he can destroy any pitch, the main pitches he’ll see from Beede are a 94 MPH fastball and a changeup, both of which he has over a .400 ISO and wOBA to. Lock in Bellinger tonight with confidence as his price is worth every penny!
