MLB CRUSH SPOT
SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2019
BY BRANDON SILVERS
GOLDY- 0-5 = 0
MUNCY- 1-4, DOUBLE = 6
BREGMAN- 1-3, HOME RUN, RBI, R, BB = 21.7
VILLAR- 0-5 = 0
BETTS 1-4, SINGLE = 3
C/1B- Ryan O’Hearn
O’Hearn has had a proven feast vs the Twins on the season. He has played a total of 6 games vs Minnesota and totaled 68.9 fantasy points(11.4 FPPG). The Royals will be home vs. Cody Stashak who is 0-1 with no quality starts and O’Hearn is in position to use his .193 ISO to his advantage as Stashak has only managed to strike out 17% of the lefties he’s faced.
Also Consider: Yasmani Grandal, Jesus Aguilar, Joey Votto
VALUE: Jared Walsh, Steven Baron, Anthony Bemboom
2B- Max Muncy
I know your probably tired of seeing Mr. Muncy in this slot, but in our defense, the man has only seen 1 fantasy goose egg dating back to August 24th. That’s right….one 0 in over a month. In the 10 games since returning from the DL, Max Muncy has amassed 126.6 fantasy points on fanduel (12.66 FPPG), including a 35.4 fantasy point performance. He gets RHP Lucas Webb tonight who has been lights out vs LHB this season. I foresee Muncy being leverage and low owned while carrying a .261 ISO vs RHP to go along with his 16 Doubles and 23 Home Runs on the season. Don’t go too overboard here, but definately give him his fair share of exposure.
Also Consider: Whit Merrifield, Cavan Biggio, Gleybor Torres
VALUE: Jose Peraza, Jurickson Profar, Ben Zobrist
3B- Matt Chapman
Chapman will face the southpaw Marco Gonzales in the late game tonight in Seattle. He has had great success in past meetings with a track record of (11-23) with 6 extra base hits (1 Home Run), 4 RBI’s and most importantly, only one strike out. Chapman is my BVP player of the day.
Also Consider: Nolan Arenado, Alex Bregman, Jose Ramirez
VALUE: Manny Machado, Joey Wendle, Vladimir Guerrero
SS- Trevor Story
Story is another player who has been trending for over a month. He has seen only 2 fantasy goose eggs since 8/22 and has average 14.71 FPPG in his last 19 starts. This week alone (last 3 starts) Story has scores of 15.2, 15.2, 24.7 and is poised for another big night. Story will face the LHP of Gio Gonzalez who gives up 34% Hard Contact and a .185 ISO to right handed batters. Story has an inflated .249 ISO, .562 SLG, and has 23 XBH off the southpaws this year. Did I mention the Rockies are at home? Sign me up!
Also Consider: Jonathan Villar, Xander Bogaerts, Trae Turner
VALUE: JP Crawford, Willy Adames, Didi Gregorious
OF- Khris Davis
The red hot Oakland A’s vs Marco Gonzales, I like it! Davis has averaged 10.35 FPPG vs the Seattle Mariners this year (13 Games) including a Double Dong performance of 40.4 FPTS. His .258 ISO and 11 Home Runs leaves him to be a bang or bust option, but the ball is in his court and I look for a slam dunk. How daring are you?
Also Consider: Mookie Betts, JD Martinez, Bryce Harper
VALUE: Anthony Alford, Brian Goodwin, Tim Locastro
Thanks for tuning in and good luck on your contests tonight!
