Trea Turner (WAS) - Trea Turner has been everything that fantasy owners could have hoped for and more (especially if your name is Dusty Baker!). Finally forcing Baker to play him everyday, Turner is making it impossible to not be placed in the starting lineup on a daily basis. Turner has been a fantasy superstar - stuffing the box score in all 5 of the standard categories. In 56 games, Turner is hitting .349/.369/.558 with 28 extra base hits, 32 RBI, 45 runs, and 26 stolen bases. With this said, his 77% contact rate is below average and his 34.7% hard hit rate is solid, but not out of this world, suggesting there's some downside to his batting average. Looking towards Saturday, Josh Collmenter showed reversed splits in 2015 (.350 wOBA vs RHB), so Turner's $4,100 price on FanDuel really doesn't seem that outlandish.
Jorge Soler (CHC) - Despite the Cubs resting most of their starters on Friday afternoon after clinching a spot in the playoffs, one starting player still managed to get hurt. Jorge Soler exited the game in the 5th inning with an injury to his side. Soler has had a long history of soft tissue injuries, mostly affecting his lower body, but an oblique strain is the obvious concern here since it's typically a multi-week recovery time, which could put his playoff availability in danger. Soler has played well since returning from a hamstring injury, so this is definitely a situation to monitor as the season comes to a close for fantasy purposes.
Scooter Gennett - Hitting third for the Brewers, Scooter Gennett helped power Milwaukee on Friday afternoon. Gennett hit a 2-run home run off Cubs starting pitcher, John Lackey, to force him from the game in the 7th inning. It was the left-handed, second baseman's 13th home run of the year and his 51st RBI. Gennett has gotten hot in September, hitting .297/.350/.541 is 14 games this month. He's usually a nice value play on DFS sites, but tomorrow's matchup against Jake Arrieta might be one I would fade.
Dee Gordon (MIA) - Dee Gordon went 3-for-6 with 2 stolen bases against the Phillies. In just 66 games, Gordon has tallied 22 stolen bases, included 5 over his last 2 games. We told you weeks ago that Gordon would be a game changer for teams that were willing to wait on him and he certainly hasn't disappointed. Gordon has hit safely in 8 straight games. Gordon's $2,500 price tag on FanDuel is laughable as the Marlins take on the Phillies. Lock him in today.
Wil Myers (SD) - All Wil Myers needed was a little Rocky Mountain air to get back on track. The Padres' first baseman went 2-for-4 with a 2-run homerun. After getting off to a scorching start, Myers cooled off considerably in July and August, but the most important thing is that he has managed to stay healthy, playing in 53 more games this season than he ever has before in his career. The hard hit rate has been in line consistent with where he was at in 2015, but the 18% HR/FB rate represents a big jump. Nonetheless, his 105 MPH batted ball speed can support that high of a HR/FB rate.
