Rubby De La Rosa (ARI-SP) - Ignore Rubby De La Rosa's 5.06 ERA and 4.72 FIP on Monday. De La Rosa is set to take on the Marlins, who are a train wreck without Giancarlo Stanton. Since losing Stanton, the Marlins have scored three runs or fewer in 11 of their 17 games. Aside from their lack of run production, the Marlins average 7.68 K/game. For a power pitcher like De La Rosa who averages 8.08 K/9, this matchup has great potential. De La Rosa's high ERA has been heavily influenced by his 1.7 HR/9. Considering the Marlins power outage, De La Rosa should have an easier time keeping the ball out of the bleachers. This also means that his fantasy value gets a boost. FanDuel Value Pick $6,600
Drew Stubbs (COL-OF) - On Monday night, Drew Stubbs and the Rockies will take on Wandy Rodriguez and the Rangers in Colorado. Due to Stubbs' ability to kill lefties, he should be well worth his DFS price tag. In his career, Stubbs has a .278 AVG and .461 SLG against lefties. Comparatively, Stubbs has a .231 AVG and .371 SLG versus righties. If Stubbs was facing a really great pitcher, then these numbers would be irrelevant. However, Wandy Rodriguez is hardly fantastic. At home his ERA is 6.56. Rodriguez actually has a 2.23 road ERA, but because of the way Coors Field caters to the hitter Rodriguez's ERA will be in danger. FanDuel Value Pick $3,300
Todd Frazier (CIN-3B) - Doesn't it feel like Todd Frazier homers every time he faces a lefty? Obviously he doesn't, but Frazier's 9.78 AB/HR ratio is legitimate evidence that he destroys southpaws. This season Frazier has 24 hits against left-handed pitchers, 16 of which have gone for extra bases. Frazier and the Reds are set to take on Clayton Richard and the Cubs at home. Throughout his career Richard has struggled to minimize the long ball. In 2012 he had a bloated 1.3 HR/9, which skyrocketed to 2.2 HR/9 in 2013. This isn't to say Frazier is guaranteed a dinger, but his chances will be as high as ever. As most baseball fans know, Great American Ballpark favors hitters. Frazier, who hits .071 points higher at home, has every advantage on his side. His DFS price tag is a little steep, but the potential for a high payoff is huge. FanDuel Pick $3,500
Stack of the Day: San Francisco Giants
Ian Kennedy's 2.1 HR/9 and 4.91 ERA make him an easy target for a DFS stack. On Monday night, Kennedy will face the Giants in San Diego. This season Kennedy has a 2.75 HR/9 and 6.18 ERA at home. Both righties and lefties have tagged Kennedy for 10 home runs from each side of the plate. Historically, Kennedy has a similar BAA against righties and lefties. Over the past three seasons righties have hit .260 against Kennedy while lefties have hit .257. The major difference is SLG. In that same timespan, lefties slugged 47 points higher, mainly due to the additional 17 home runs in 37 fewer at bats. The Giants don't have any overwhelming lefty bats in the lineup, but they do have plenty of extra base threats. A combo of Panik, Duffy, Posey, Pence, and Belt should do the trick.
Matt Kemp (SDP-OF) - Matt Kemp is heating up in San Diego. Before the Padres Rockies game was postponed on Sunday, Kemp was 2 for 2 with two doubles. Had the stats counted, Kemp would be on an eight game hit streak. Instead, he'll have to continue his hit streak on Monday. During Kemp's eightish game hit streak, he has six multi hit games. He also has six doubles and three home runs. Kemp is back to batting third, and owning the role. Be ready to have him in your DFS lineup because right now no one is hotter.
