Paul Goldschmidt (DK: $4,700 FD: $3,800): Paul Goldschmidt faces Jakob Junis who has struggled in limited action this year. Against right-handed pitchers this year, Goldschmidt has a 1.120 OPS that includes a .508 OBP! There really isn’t anything not to like about Goldschmidt today as he hits the ball hard, doesn’t strike out much, and has an ISO of .224. Jakob Junis is not good at generating strikeouts, and struggled getting ground balls against right handed hitters. Righties have an average exit velocity of 94 MPH off Junis this year. Goldschmidt should be locked into all of your lineups!

Jake Cronenworth (DK: $3,800 FD: $2,800): We love Jake Cronenworth today, who is a great piece for your middle-infield. Cronenworth has an OPS of 1.100 and is hitting the ball hard over 60% of the time. He will be facing Taijuan Walker who has a hard time generating swings and misses vs lefties with an average exit velo of 92 MPH on balls hit in play. Walker is very susceptible to the long ball vs lefties as he has given up four homers in 10.2 innings. Cronenworth also has a very impressive ISO of .333. Cronenworth’s ability to put the ball in play with hard contact and Walker’s inability to miss bats should translate to a very nice day at the plate.
