A limited six-game slate awaits Monday evening, going off at 7:05 p.m. EDT. It's Braves heavy offensively, at least price-wise, so small shares there paired with heavy doses elsewhere is the obvious lineup construction.
Jacob deGrom, NYM vs. TAM ($11,500): He's priced 2k over any other arm, rightfully so given form, but it's well known how little run support deGrom receives. His hamstring issue is certainly a concern, especially for cash lineups where he's the lone target. But assuming health, paired with the Rays' 25.4 percent K rate, deGrom's floor looks targetable, given that he's posted less than 39 FanDuel points (FDP) just twice all year.
Adam Wainwright, STL at KAN ($9,500): The obvious pivot, Wainwright has been volatile compared to the tag. He earned only 21 FDP against the Royals four starts prior, but they're a unit that has a .698 OPS and 24.7 K rate against righties.
JT Brubaker, PIT vs. CHC ($6,800): This should be an obvious pay down, especially for GPPs. Brubaker has faced the Cubs twice this year, earning 18 and 33 FDP. That flirts with a 3x floor and provides for cap flexibility. Mix in the Cubs' 25.6 percent K rate, 75 wRC+ and .115 ISO against righties, and there's a nice mix of floor and upside.
George Springer, HOU at SEA ($3,700): He homered twice Sunday, giving him three in three days and five in his last seven. Mix in a .310 ISO against opposite-handed arms, and you have to expect run production, even if the long ball doesn't matriculate.
Dominic Smith, NYM vs. TAM ($3,600): Smith has a robust 41 RBI, and carried a 12-game hitting streak into Friday, knocking out 21 hits in that stretch. With a bullpen game on deck for the Rays, Smith should land ample cuts.
Ke'Bryan Hayes, PIT vs. CHC ($3,300): Hayes is proving scouts wrong early in his career, showing far more power than expected. His .462 ISO plays well here against opposite-handed arm Jon Lester, who is allowing a .344 wOBA to righties.
Brandon Belt, SFG vs. COL ($3,000): Belt is incredibly volatile, scratching just four times in his last seven outings. But twice in that stretch he's gone for 20-plus FDP. He brings a .440 wOBA and .301 ISO against righties into this contest.
Stacks to Consider
ATL bats against the lefty here make too much sense, and are led by Ozuna's .561 ISO, .552 wOBA and 250 wRC+. The lineup is deep and targetable across, but we can round out this stack with Albies' surge off of the IL and his previous prowess against lefties, paired with Duvall's .326 ISO and 40.0 hard hit rate against lefties. Four of the top five bats on this slate are Braves, forcing you to differentiate while still buying in.
