Khris Davis (LF, OAK) - Davis gets to face Bartolo Colon and his 8.00 ERA, and .404 BAA versus right handers on Sunday. It has been an ugly season overall for Big Sexy, and Davis has done his best work against righties. He is hitting .256 with 26 of his 28 home runs coming against them. He is also posting hard contact against them 41% of the time in 2017. He will be worth the $4000 he will cost in DFS.
Zack Greinke (SP, ARI) - Greinke cruised to his 13th win of 2017 in the Diamondbacks 7-1 win over the Cardinals Saturday. In seven innings, Greinke allowed just one earned run on four hits and one walk, while striking out nine. On the year, his ERA sits at 2.84, and his WHIP sits at 1.00, with 149 strikeouts in 136.1 innings. It is yet another solid season for the former Cy Young winner. With the K/BB% sitting at 22.4, and the strand rate at 77.6%, there are not many free passes being had at Greinke's expense, and he is minimizing damage. xFIP shows he is in line to improve as it is at 3.25 currently. Overall, you are getting great value for where he was drafted heading into the season, as he is performing like a top five starting pitcher, and has an explosive offense behind him.
J.D. Martinez (OF, ARI) - Martinez hit his 21st home run, and his fifth as a member of the Diamondbacks, as they beat the Cardinals 7-1 on Saturday. It is safe to say the change of scenery has done Martinez good, as he has put on a power show since coming over from Detroit. On the year Martinez is slashing .293/.373/.642, with the 21 homers and 51 RBI. His ISO sits at an eye-popping .344, with a wOBA of .410 and a wRC+ of 159. Sprinkle in a 47% hard contact rate, and it is clear Martinez is producing runs. He will benefit greatly from the hitting environment in Arizona, as well as hitting behind one of the premier fantasy players in the game. As long as Martinez stays healthy, which has been rare, he could finish as a top 15 outfielder once the season is over.
Cody Bellinger (1B/OF, LAD) - The rookie phenom went 2 for 4 with two RBI in the Dodgers 2-1 win over the Giants and Dodger Stadium Saturday. While Bellinger has cooled a bit, he has still posted a season that makes him the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year in the National League. At this point, he is slashing .265/.346/.602, with a team leading 28 home runs, and also is leading the Dodgers with 69 RBI. As usual, one of the few knocks on his game is the K% which is currently at 27.5%. However, when you hit home runs, and walk at an 11.5% clip, it will offset some of the K's, and help produce a nice OBP. His .384 wOBA ranks him 23rd in baseball, and has him ahead of other young guns like Kris Bryant and teammate Cody Seager.
Jacob deGrom (SP, NYM) - Despite going six innings, allowing two earned runs, on five hits and one walk, with ten strikeouts, deGrom was saddled with the loss as the Mets fell to the Mariners 3-2 Saturday. The loss brings deGrom's record to 12-4, and puts his ERA and WHIP at 3.29 and 1.15 respectively. His season would have him in the Cy Young conversation, except he pitches in the same league with guys named Scherzer and Kershaw. xFIP shows he could get even better, as it currently sits at 3.45, down from his FIP of 3.69. He is in in your starting lineups each time he takes the mound, and at 29 years old, he still has lots of great baseball ahead of him.
