Khris Davis (DK: $4,200 FD: $3,800): Our first Must-Have of the main slate will be stepping into the box tonight against right-hander Adrian Sampson in Globe Life Park. Over the course of Davis’ career, he has hit extremely well in Globe Life Park thanks to a .328 average, 1.227 OPS, and 16 homers in just over 100 at-bats. It is clear Davis sees the ball very well in Texas and tonight he has a strong matchup with Sampson. Against right-handers in 2019, Sampson is allowing a hefty .270 xISO and a .401 xwOBA. Davis has about as much upside as anyone against a right-hander since he hit 37 homers against them last year and already has six against them this year to go with a .206 xISO. We can also tell you that Sampson showcases primarily a sinker and slider to right-handers and Davis holds down impressive numbers against both pitches from right-handers since 2018. Against the sinker, Davis holds down a .443 xISO and .485 xwOBA, and against the slider, he owns a .259 xISO. Lock in the big upside of Davis across all lineups tonight as he comes at a very affordable price!
Paul Goldschmidt (DK: $4,000 FD: $3,800): Goldschmidt and the Cardinals find themselves at Wrigley Field tonight facing left-hander Jon Lester. Across 14 previous plate-appearances against Lester in “Goldy’s” career, he has belted a home run, stolen two bases, walked twice, and accumulated six hits, all good for a 1.321 OPS and a .500 average against Lester. Against left-handers in general in 2019, Goldschmidt holds down a fantastic .262 xISO with a massive .437 xwOBA. It is no surprise Goldy mashes Lester since Lester throws mostly a four-seam fastball and cut-fastball to right-handers. Against four-seamers from lefties since 2018, Goldy has posted an enormous .530 xISO with a .549 xwOBA, and against cut-fastballs he has posted a formidable .214 ISO. We will be taking the safety and upside at this very affordable price across all lineups and formats tonight alongside Khris Davis! Join us in the War Room for more ways to construct your lineups!
