Jose Abreu (DK: $5,300; FD: $3,700): Jose Abreu is our first Must-Have of tonight’s slate and we love his upside hitting in the middle of the order for the extremely potent White Sox lineup. On the season to righties, Abreu owns a .314 AVG, .947 OPS, .277 ISO and 155 wRC+. He also gets to face off against Michael Fulmer, who has been abysmal to right-handed hitters this year, allowing them to hit him to the tune of a .585 xwOBA with a .510 xISO. To righties, Fulmer’s main pitch is a sinker, which Abreu has crushed, owning a .495 xwOBA with a .265 xISO to the pitch. We love Abreu tonight and are locking him in as our first Must-Have of the night!
Whit Merrifield (DK: $4,600; FD: $3,300): Whit Merrifield gets a glorious matchup against Trevor Williams, who has allowed a .315 xISO and .390 xwOBA against right-handed hitters this season. Whit already has seven homers against righties this season, and sports a .227 ISO and an xwOBA of just under .400 against the fastball that Williams throws over 40 percent of the time to righties. With added stolen base upside, we believe this is a great matchup for Whit Merrfield, and we are locking him in with confidence!
