Charlie Blackmon (DK: $5,800 FDuel: $4,400): Charlie Blackmon is way too hot to fade right now. Blackmon now has double-digit FPTS in five of his last six games, as well as 20+ FPTs in three of his last four. Against lefties this year, Blackmon has a ridiculous .591 wOBA and .261 ISO with a 0% strikeout percentage. Robbie Ray is having tremendous trouble with his fastball this year, allowing a .584 xISO and .561 xwOBA to left-handed bats. Blackmon has shown no trouble with the fastball with his .360 xISO and .521 xwOBA with just a 4% swstrk%. When we add in that in 46 at-bats against Ray, Blackmon has a .391 ISO, .541 wOBA, 1.284 OPS and 5 homeruns, he is an absolute lock on this slate.
Leury Garcia (DK: $3,300 FDuel: $2,700): Leury Garcia is off to a blazing hot start this season with a .273 AVG and 122 wRC+. He has been rewarded with the leadoff spot for the White Sox and we love the spot he is in tonight. Garcia’s first at-bat will be against Michael Fulmer who has a 7.26 xFIP and a 55% fly-ball rate. However, the bulk of his at-bats will be against Daniel Norris who has shown reverse splits in his career. Last season he allowed a .333 wOBA and .225 ISO to left-handed bats. Garcia had a promising .334 wOBA to lefties last season, and this year he’s off to a hot start with a .649 wOBA and .429 ISO. It should also be noted that Daniel Norris has struggled throughout his career holding runners from stealing and Garcia has a terrific chance to swipe a base tonight. This will likely be a bullpen game for the Tigers and we see a ton of upside out of Garcia batting leadoff in this stacked lineup. Lock in Garcia with confidence!
