Matt Olson (DK: $5,200 FD: $3,900): Our first Must-Have of the day will be stepping into the box tonight against right-hander Jon Duplantier in Oakland. Duplantier is a young arm who is being hit extremely hard right now, allowing nearly a .270 xISO to each lefties and righties. Matt Olson has done nothing but crush right-handed pitching in his career, and in 2021, he already has a hefty .280 xISO and .405 xwOBA to righties with nine homers. Olson also loves to hit at home in Oakland where he has over a 1.000 OPS this year against right-handed pitching. The icing on the cake for Olson is that Duplantier throws his four-seamer and changeup to lefties 70% of the time and Olson currently holds down over a .450 xwOBA against each pitch from righties. We love the sky-high upside of Olson tonight and will be locking him in across all lineups!
Justin Upton (DK: $3,900 FD: $3,400): Upton has been one of the most impressive hitters against southpaws lately and tonight he sees lefty Kris Bubic in Anaheim. Bubic allows close to a .200 xISO to right-handed bats while Upton has over a .400 xwOBA to lefties this year with a massive .370 xISO against them over the last 30 days alone. This Angels team has a team total that is creeping up towards five and even after Bubic, Upton will see MLB’s 4th-worst bullpen. We can also tell you that Upton has over a 1.000 OPS when hitting at home in 2021 and already 11 homers! Upton should be in a perfect spot to keep producing tonight especially since Bubic throws his two favorite pitches to hit in the four-seamer and changeup. Against both of these pitches from lefties Upton has nearly a .300 xISO. Lock in Upton alongside Olson in all lineups tonight!
