C. Travis d’Arnud R: With HH contact thru thru the roof in the short sample, he’s a nice short term target if he starts out hot.
1B. Freddie Freeman: L: Rarely striking out, he’s one of the top 2 at the position probably all year in 21′.
2B: Ozzie Albies: R an average hitter vs. Righties. Nice a number 2 hole hitter getting on base and stealing with surprising consistent power.
3B: Austin Riley R: A liability in the outfield or infield but is versatile. It will be interesting to see if he’s a FB or a GB hitter as he flipped in that area from being a FB hitter in 19′ and his K% Rate went way down in 20′.
SS: Dansby Swanson R: Headed for a regression to what he did last yr however, but still a decent player all around that you could stack.
LF: Ender Inciarte L: Not in there for hitting, should get pinched hit for.
CF: Christian Pache R: Looking for power, he’s has elite speed.
RF: Ronald Acuna R: They are gonna walk him a lot, one of the elite at power and speed, continues to get better. His BABIP was only .302 which is a great indicator that this dominance will continue.
SP 1: Mike Soroka RHP: If Drafting him fill in with Kyle Wright as a handcuff like we do in NFL with RB’s. The Big guy displayed great GB rate.
SP 2: Max Fried RHP: Even with very efficient use of his 3 pitches and a low %3 barrel rate, his can get blown up so is not and ACE pitcher despite skills.
SP 3: Ian Anderson RHP: As a 2 pitch pitcher, we’ll see if he prevent the catchup by hitters as the upside with SO’s seems massive in DFS.
SP 4: Charlie Morton RHP: Not the solid option he used to be as i’ll take sort of a wait and see approach, coming back from an injury.
SP 5: Drew Smyly LHP: A SO pitcher on a really good defensive team makes this a good pitcher option on a 2 start week in season long formats.
RP’s: Interestingly they don’t have a real Closer with Chris Martin and AJ Minter seemingly going for the same spot, with interesting combos of pitch types, they are both very effective in setups.
