Welp, I hope you didn’t play Brendan McKay….

I sure as hell did, and it’s a reminder that I am so ready for football season…

PITCHERS

Dylan Bundy – vs. Kansas City Royals – $6,800

Analysis: Soooo Dylan Bundy…he’s a cheap option to stack your lineups with big bats on FanDuel. The Royals are 21st in team wOBA and strike out 20% of the time to righties. Bundy is striking out right-handed bats at an elite rate, whiffing them at 11.00 K/9. He’s striking out lefties at a 7.70 K/9.

HITTERS

Rhys Hoskins – 1B – Philadelphia Phillies – $3,800

Analysis: There’s isn’t a better value vs. matchup on the board for me today than Rhys Hoskins. The lefty destroyer draws the worst lefty on the board in Brian Johnson. As a righty in Fenway, this is just a juicy matchup for Hoskins, who owns a .411 wOBA with a .275 ISO vs. southpaws. As for Johnson, he’s been awful against righties as usual, allowing a .474 wOBA with a 43% hard hit rate and a 2.57 HR/9.
