P- Justin Verlander (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $10,400. Verlander has been absolutely dominant since the All-Star break. Over his last three starts, he has a 1-1 record, 2.25 ERA, and 17 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched. In 72 career at bats against Verlander, the Angels' offense is batting .153, with a .247 OBP, and a .256 slugging percentage. In his last start against the Angels, Verlander went 7.1 innings, giving up four runs, and he struck out seven batters. 

P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $7,600. Colon has been very consistent all year long. During his starts in August, he owns a 2.25 ERA. In three starts against the Phillies this season, Colon has held them to a .206 batting average. In 117 career at bats against Colon, the Phillies' lineup is batting .231, with a .272 OBP, and a .372 slugging percentage. 

C- Brian McCann (vs. Yovani Gallardo): $3,600. In 24 career at bats against Gallardo, McCann has a .400 OBP and a .458 slugging percentage. He has struggled a bit with the bat recently, but he is still taking walks and getting on base. 

1B- Miguel Cabrera (vs. Ricky Nolasco): $5,000. Over his last 10 games, Miggy is batting .351, with two home runs, .415 OBP, and a .595 slugging percentage. In 152 career at bats against Nolasco, the Tigers' offense is batting .316 with a .370 OBP, so this could be a great opportunity to stack against the right hander. 

2B- Starlin Castro (vs. Yovani Gallardo): $3,600. In 44 career at bats against Gallardo, Castro is batting .364, with three extra base hits, and a .383 OBP. 

3B- Alex Bregman (vs. Drew Smyly): $3,700. Over his last 10 games, Bregman is batting .318, with four home runs, and a .348 OBP. He is facing a left-handed pitcher on Friday, which should be a big advantage for him. 

SS- Tim Anderson (vs. Felix Hernandez): $3,600. Over his last 10 games, Anderson is batting .324, with two home runs, seven extra base hits, two stolen bases, and a .375 OBP. He is averaging 10.9 points during that time span, which makes his $3,600 price tag look very low. 

OF- Matt Kemp (vs. Jeff Samardzija): $3,400. Over his last 10 games, Kemp is batting .300, with one home run, and a .370 OBP. In 16 career at bats against the Shark, Kemp has two home runs. 

OF- Justin Upton (vs. Ricky Nolasco): $3,500. Over his last 10 games, Upton is batting .281, with three home runs, nine RBIs, and a .324 OBP. In 22 career at bats against Nolasco, Upton is batting .409 with a .458 OBP. 

OF- Kris Bryant (vs. Bud Norris): $5,400. Bryant has been putting up some video game-like numbers over his last 10 games. Over that time span he is batting .450, with five home runs, 14 RBIs, 14 runs, and a .500 OBP.

P- Robbie Ray (vs. Atlanta Braves): $10,400. Over Ray's last three starts, he has been absolutely dominant. Those starts include 19 innings pitched, 2-0 record, 0.95 ERA, and 22 strikeouts. He is facing a mediocre Braves lineup, so this shouldn't be a tough matchup for the left-handed pitcher. His hot streak and opponent makes me believe he is the best top-tier pitcher available on Thursday. 

P- Tom Koehler (vs. Kansas City Royals): $7,100. Koehler has been great since the All-Star break. Since July 21st, the righty has thrown 39 innings, with a 1.62 ERA, 26 hits allowed, and 30 strikeouts. Kansas City's offense has been very average all year long, so it shouldn't pose a huge threat for Koehler. 

C- Mike Zunino (vs. Anthony Ranaudo): $3,500. Zunino continues to swing a hot bat. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .276, with three home runs, and a .382 OBP. In 2016, Ranaudo has given up four home runs, 10 hits, and eight runs over 10.2 innings pitched, which clearly favors the batters. 

1B- James Loney (vs. Adam Wainwright): $3,000. In 31 career at bats against Wainwright, Loney has 16 hits, six for extra bases, and a .531 OBP. Loney has struggled at the plate recently, but his career stats and price is very attractive for Thursday. 

2B- Howie Kendrick (vs. Matt Moore): $4,400. Moore has struggled with his command recently, which could make for some very easy points for Kendrick on Thursday. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .325, with one home run, seven runs, and a .386 OBP. 

3B- Justin Turner (vs. Matt Moore): $4,200. As I mentioned above, Moore has really struggled with his command. Over his last 23 innings pitched, he has 17 walks. Over Turner's last 10 games, he is batting .324, with two home runs, and a .361 OBP. 

SS- Xander Bogaerts (vs. Jake Odorizzi): $3,300. Bogaerts hit cold streak for a while, but over his last five games, he has six hits. In 18 career at bats against Odorizzi, Bogaerts is batting .389, with four extra base hits, and a .480 OBP. His price is a steal for Thursday. 

OF- Adam Jones (vs. Max Scherzer): $3,500. In 22 career at bats against Scherzer, Jones has 11 hits, five for extra bases, three home runs, and a .500 OBP. 

OF- Bryce Harper (vs. Ubaldo Jimenez): $5,500. Over his last 10 games, Harper is batting .378, with two home runs, 11 RBIs, and a .500 OBP. Jimenez has struggled this season, so hopefully Harper can take care of business on Thursday. 

OF- J.D. Martinez (vs. Jose Berrios): $5,000. As much as I love Berrios for the future, he is really struggling in the present. He has shown a lack of command and he is leaving the ball up in the zone, which could lead to a big day from J.D. Martinez. Over his last 10 games, Martinez is batting .475, with four home runs, and a .512 OBP.
