The MLB FanDuel success continues to revolve around finding that one top option on the mound. Yesterday our hunch on Aaron Sanchez was correct as he was simply unhittable through seven innings for the Toronto Blue Jays. That success not only resulted in his 11th win of the season but also rewarded his fantasy owners with 54 fantasy points.
Tonight we will be looking for that same type of success from the mound but will have a few more options as all 30 MLB teams are in action tonight. At the top of that list is Danny Salazar who has put together somewhat of a silent season together but the numbers have shown up in the stat column.
The Cleveland Indians starter has pitched to a 2.75 earned run average over his first 18 starts while picking up 11 wins in those contests. That being said we are keep a close eye on the King tonight as Felix Hernandez will make his second start since coming off the disabled list last week.
Prior to going down the Mariners ace recorded at least 39 fantasy points in three straight games. Than there is Chris Tillman who has been a work horse for the Baltimore Orioles. Tillman has posted four straight games with at least 36 fantasy points with a 51 point performance coming in his last outing.
Here is who we like for Tuesday July 26th, 2016
FanDuel Hitters We Like On Tuesday July 26th, 2016
Josh Reddick, Oakland A’s: For us it was hard to pass up on the A’s outfielder based on his career .500 batting average against Nick Martinez of the Texas Rangers. Overall Reddick has picked up six hits in just 12 at bats with three of those going for extras bases. Tonight he will look to continue that success on the road at a very hitter friendly ball park
FanDuel Pitchers We Like On Tuesday July 26th, 2016
Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners: While the former Cy Young Award winner didn’t impress in his last outing he has however had some great success against this Pittsburgh Pirates team. Overall the team has just 18 hits in 109 career at bats while striking out a combined 35 times.
FanDuel Sleepers We Like On Tuesday July 26th, 2016
Sonny Gray, Oakland A’s: Now we wouldn’t typically put Gray on this list but his recent straggles has dropped him down the ladder among top tier fantasy starters and an option many fantasy owners look past. For us we are just riding our gut here as we expect Gray to return to his old CY Young candidate.
The Stack List for Tuesday July 26th
Gordon Beckham/Nick Markakis: We could even toss in the likes of Freddi Freeman into this stack on FanDuel on Monday Night. Entering Tuesday the combination of Bekcham./ Markakis provides proven success against Ervin Santana combining to go 17 for 66 with six home runs.
Baltimore Orioles: Can Chris Davis and company get the fireworks started tonight at Camden Yards. For us we can’t pass this group up as well as any of the big guns on the Colorado. Davis would provide us with a great fantasy first base option while a combination of Jonathan Schoop could be just enough to win tonight.
