Anthony Rendon (DK: $5,100 FD: $4,200): Our first Must-Have of this full slate will be Anthony Rendon of the Washington Nationals. Rendon has been a lefty-masher all season, tagging them for a .440 wOBA, .307 ISO, and 51% hard-contact. While here at DFI we don’t believe BvP is the end all be all, Rendon’s BvP against Alex Wood cannot be ignored as he is an incredible 12 for 21 off of him with just two strikeouts. Alex Wood has had his struggles so far this season, allowing a .390 wOBA and .268 ISO to right-handed hitters, including a ridiculous 40% fly-ball rate with 57% hard-contact. This is a matchup that we absolutely must take advantage of and we highly recommend locking in Rendon across the board!

Gleyber Torres (DK: $4,400 FD: $3,600):
Anytime Gleyber Torres has a matchup with the Orioles, he automatically must be in your lineup. Against the Orioles this season, Torres sports a ridiculous 303 wRC+, .724 ISO, 1.623 OPS, .414 average, .625 wOBA, and 50% hard-contact rate. We believe it to be extremely likely that Torres continues clobbering the Orioles as tonight he sees lefty John Means who has been susceptible to the homerun ball. On the road against righties, Means sports a 6.07 xFIP, 1.74 HR/9, 48% fly-ball rate, and .352 wOBA. Torres has been an absolute menace to lefties at his home park, crushing them to the tune of a 134 wRC+, .274 ISO, .375 wOBA, and a .290 average. Torres is way too cheap in this matchup to pass up tonight and we will have him locked!
