Freddie Freeman (DK: $5,500 FD: $4,300): The Braves draw a matchup against right-hander Jorge Lopez in Baltimore tonight. Lopez has allowed a hefty .315 xISO and an xwOBA near .400 against lefties in 2020 and Freeman is one of MLB’s most elite left-handed hitters right now. Freeman has hit right-handers to the tune of a .357 average, 10 homers, a 1.200 OPS, .357 ISO, and over a 49% hard-hit rate. We can also tell you that Lopez will showcase a sinker, knuckle-curve, and four-seam fastball for around 90% of his arsenal against lefties and Freeman owns over a .320 xISO against all three pitches this season. In a great park for hitters, we will be locking in Freeman’s sky-high upside against an exploitable starter and bullpen.

Ryan Mountcastle (DK: $3,500 FD: $3,500): Our next Must-Have will be stepping into the box tonight against right-hander Touki Toussaint. Ryan Mountcastle has quietly become one of the more elite young hitters across the MLB thanks to a .347 average and an OPS near 1.000 this season. However, against right-handers alone Mountcastle is hitting for a .359 average, 1.039 OPS, .264 ISO, and a 40% hard-hit rate. Toussaint is also allowing righties to hit him for a .243 xISO this season to go along with a .374 xwOBA. Mountcastle is simply just too cheap for his production right now and will be locked into all of our lineups in this solid matchup!
