All the latest in-depth fantasy sports and sports betting news, including expert advice for fantastic lineups and more
NCLS officially kicks off Monday night and it should be one hell of a streak Two monster offenses go head to head in the hopes of making it to the final dance Let’s dive into that DraftKings Showdown slate to help you build your rosters
Ronald Acuna Jr ($ 14,100 CP) – I’m going to be completely honest, I don’t feel good with either of the pitchers in this game Both have some really good advantages and no one Will blame you if you use them in your place of captain.However, I think the offenses on both sides are just too good Acuna Jr has a stellar playoff series so far and will face Walker Buehler ($ 11,800), who was at a hitter to potentially implode against the Padres in the NLDS The first time in command was a bit of a problem for Buehler, owning a 447 FIP However, the second time after setup his FIP drops to 387 With Acuna Jr hitting in the top of the order of the Braves, it brings a 423 wOBA with an ISO 364 and a 488% hit rate against righties You get excellent pop and a potential threat of base theft
AJ Pollock ($ 10,200 CP) – What if you want to go a little cheap to captain to scramble some of the more expensive players, but also not skimp on their advantage? Pollock is an interesting name to consider To be fair, Max Fried ($ 10,800) is a tough pitcher to get extra bases His ground ball rate of 53% was the eighth best score among regular season starters To that end , Pollock also boasted some of the best powers against lefties with an ISO 473 and a 468 wOBA Making Pollock your captain will not only give you a unique build, but leave you an average of $ 7,960 for the rest of your list.
Travis d’Arnaud ($ 7,200) – This price for Arnaud should be much higher, as he has arguably been one of the Braves’ best hitters throughout the season going into this game , he’s averaged 13.6 DKFP in the Braves’ five playoff games with two homers, two doubles and seven RBIs As I mentioned above, Buehler hasn’t had a lot against the righties this season, so who better to face the Braves than one of their better hitters lately? In the regular season against the righties, Arnaud posted a 433 wOBA with an ISO 267 with all nine home runs cut. He’s by far my favorite game in the $ 8,000 range
Nick Markakis ($ 5,200) – Here’s the thing about Markakis – he doesn’t exactly crush the ball, as at all His numbers against right-handed people were more pedestrian with a wOBA 294, ISO 149 and just a 29 8% hit rate So what gives? Well, quite frankly, he’s essentially one of the cheaper guys on the board who won’t be knocked out for The majority of players in this lineup (we’ll talk about one of them below) might end up. starting or entering the Joc Pederson game later ($ 4,800) is another great example of this He won’t start but he will probably end up returning when Fried is away You don’t really have to worry about that with Markakis and he’ll will help fit the rest of your lineup On a positive note, aside from the third game in the NLDS, Markakis had reached baseline in eight straight games, so there’s no question that he couldn’t offer you something thing in this match
Kike Hernandez ($ 5,600) – Hernandez set to shoot the left-hander start on the mound tonight Hernandez finished the regular season with just a 284 wOBA against lefties but a 194 ISO, which was one of the highest in The only problem here is that Hernandez could end up being lifted up for a pinch later in the game, as we saw before during the Padres series. So while it’s by no means a safe game, Hernandez has a better chance of beating a reliever you could line up in the hopes they bring into the game.
Walker Buehler ($ 11,800) – It’s a scary name to put in the fade section, but I think we have legitimate reasons to consider it First, Buehler hasn’t pitched more than four innings since September 2 After pitching five innings against the Diamondbacks, he went 2 2⁄3 against them again, then four in his next three starts after a stint on the injured list He throws a ton of throws in those starts, finishing 95 against the Padres in his last outing.In those 12 innings he also has seven steps and now faces a Braves team who had a 101% BB% against the righties. , who was one of the best in the league If there’s one team you don’t want to give free passes to, it’s the Braves
Can he hit seven or eight batters in this game? Absolutely However, I just don’t see the dominant performance that we would need to pay for someone who is the most expensive player in the $ 1000 table.
I’m really excited for this game and I think he surprisingly could get a fair amount of offense, despite the game we see on paper Fading pitchers in Showdown is a scary strategy to implement, especially if they continue to have a good game These are just points that cannot be made up, unless there is a bullpen implosion from one of the teams With that in mind, it is very, very difficult to ignore the quality of these offenses If anything, taking that perspective will make you unique which will hopefully lead to a range of high scores
