P- Masahiro Tanaka (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $10,800. Over his last six starts, Tanaka is 5-0 with a 2.08 ERA. That includes a start against the Rays which he gave up four runs over seven innings and struck out eight. While that start isn't fantastic, Tanaka has pretty much dominated this team over his career. In 84 career at bats against Tanaka, the Rays' offense is batting .179, with 19 strikeouts, and a .188 OBP. 

P- Adam Wainwright (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,100. It looks like Wainwright has finally snapped out of his funk. Over his last three starts, he has a 1-1 record, 3.71 ERA, and 15 strikeouts in 17 innings pitched. That includes a start against Milwaukee where he went seven innings, giving up only three hits, seven strikeouts, and one earned run. In 144 career at bats against Wainwright, the Brewers' offense is batting .215, with 37 strikeouts, and a .245 OBP. 

C- Stephen Vogt (vs. Felix Hernandez): $2,900. In 26 career at bats against Hernandez, Vogt is batting .423, with three extra base hits, .464 OBP, and a .654 slugging percentage. 

1B- Victor Martinez (vs. Ubaldo Jimenez): $3,100. In 31 career at bats against Jimenez, Victor Martinez is batting .355, with five extra base hits, four home runs, and a .371 OBP. 

2B- Jason Kipnis (vs. Hector Santiago): $4,100. Kipnis has been very consistent at the plate recently, most due to his walk rate and superior eye at the plate. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .250, with two home runs, and a .417 OBP (11 walks). In 23 career at bats against Santiago, Kipnis is batting .348, with one home run, and a .423 OBP. 

3B- Wilmer Flores (vs. John Gant): $3,600. Over his last 10 games, Flores is batting .324, with two home runs, .378 OBP, and a .588 slugging percentage. John Gant hasn't impressed very much this year, so hopefully Flores can take advantage of this right-handed pitcher. 

SS- Francisco Lindor (vs. Hector Santiago): $4,400. Santiago has really struggled recently while Lindor has been on fire... that seems like a great combination to me. Over his last 10 games, Lindor is batting .450, with five extra base hits, .511 OBP, and a .600 slugging percentage. 

OF- Jacoby Ellsbury (vs. Chris Archer): $3,900. In 31 career at bats against Archer, Ellsbury is batting .581, with one home run, .629 OBP, and a .710 slugging percentage. 

OF- Melky Cabrera (vs. Edison Volquez): $4,100. In 33 career at bats against Volquez, Cabrera is batting .303, with three extra base hits, and a .361 OBP. Over his last 10 games, Melky is batting .333, with eight RBIs, .422 OBP, and a .487 slugging percentage. 

OF- Kris Bryant (vs. Collin McHugh): $4,700. McHugh has been pretty bad recently. In his last game, he gave up five runs in 4.1 innings pitched against the Rangers. I think there is a very good chance the Cubs put up a big game on Saturday, and I think Bryant will lead that charge. Over his last 10 games, Bryant is batting .282, with one home run, and a .417 slugging percentage. Minute Paid Park is also a great stadium for right-handed hitters, which favors Bryant.

P- Tanner Roark (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $9,300. Roark has dominated the Phillies this year. In four starts against Philadelphia, Roark has a 0.64 ERA. In his last start against the Phils, he went seven scoreless innings. Over his last three starts, he has a 1-2 record, 3.18 ERA, and 12 strikeouts in 17 innings pitched. 

P- Yordano Ventura (vs. Chicago White Sox): $8,600. Over Ventura's last three starts, he has a 2-0 record with a 2.20 ERA. He has struggled with control at times, but if he can limit his walks, he has the potential to put up a huge game on Friday. In 115 career at bats against Ventura, the White Sox offense is batting .209, with a .264 OBP, and 29 strikeouts. 

C- Stephen Vogt (vs. Hisashi Iwakuma): $3,200. In 23 career at bats against Iwakuma, Vogt is batting .304 with a .348 slugging percentage. After spending a good amount on pitching, I've decided to go with a cheap option at catcher. 

1B- Edwin Encarnacion (vs. Rick Porcello): $3,900. In 34 career at bats against Porcello, Encarnacion is batting .382, with eight extra base hits, three home runs, and a .400 OBP.

2B- Brian Dozier (vs. Danny Salazar): $5,400. In 23 career at bats against Salazar, Dozier is batting .478, with seven extra base hits, two home runs, and a .520 OBP. Over his last 10 games, Dozier is batting .364 with nine home runs. 

3B- Alex Bregman (vs. Jon Lester): $3,800. Over his last 10 games, Bregman is batting .318, with two home runs, 10 RBIs, nine runs, .362 OBP, and a .568 slugging percentage. He has a tough matchup against Lester, but he should fair well against a left-handed pitcher. 

SS- Alcides Escobar (vs. Carlos Rodon): $3,100. Escobar's career splits favor him against left-handed pitching. Over his last seven games, he is batting .333 with a .360 OBP. Rodon has been very good recently, but he has also struggled with command at times, so I'm hoping that could lead to some easy points for Escobar. 

OF- Jose Bautista (vs. Rick Porcello): $4,000. In 34 career at bats against Porcello, Bautista is batting .412, with three home runs, and a .500 OBP. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .268, with two home runs, and a .362 OBP. 

OF- Odubel Herrera (vs. Tanner Roark): $3,800. In 14 career at bats against Roark, Herrera is batting .429 with a .500 OBP. At only $3,800, Herrera's ability to get on base is very valuable to this lineup. 

OF- Kris Bryant (vs. Joe Musgrove): $4,900. Over his last 10 games, Bryant is batting .282, with one home run, and a .417 OBP. Bryant is playing at Minute Maid Park, which is a very hitter-friendly stadium for right-handed batters like Bryant. Musgrove has allowed five-plus runs in three of his six starts.

P- Ivan Nova (vs. Cincinatti Reds): $9,800. Over his last three starts, Nova has a 2-0 record, 1.71 ERA, and 16 strikeouts in 21 innings pitched. He has been absolutely dominant since joining the Pirates at the trade deadline. In six starts in the Pirates rotation, he is 4-0 with a 2.89 ERA. The Reds offense is average at best, so hopefully Nova can take care of business at his home field on Thursday. 

P- Trevor Bauer (vs. Houston Astros): $7,900. Considering there is only seven match-ups on Thursday, there were some very slim pickings for starting pitching. The Houston Astros offense can be dangerous, but Bauer has done a great job against them in his career. In 51 career at bats against Bauer, the Astros are batting .137, with a .226 OBP, and 21 strikeouts. 

C- Yadier Molina (vs. Junior Guerra): $3,700. Over his last 10 games, Molina is batting .385, with three home runs, and a .400 OBP. 

1B- Wil Myers (vs. Jeff Hoffman): $4,300. Myers has struggled at the plate recently, but Hoffman has been even worse on the mound. In his last 15 innings pitched, Hoffman has allowed four home runs and only struck out five batters. 

2B- Josh Harrison (vs. Dan Straily): $3,600. In 10 career at bats against Straily, Harrison has two home runs in three total hits. Over his last 10 games, he is batting .356. 

3B- Evan Longoria (vs. CC Sabathia): $4,200. In 70 career at bats against Sabathia, Longoria is batting .400, with 16 extra base hits, seven home runs, and a .500 OBP. 

SS- Elvis Andrus (vs. Taijuan Walker): $3,800. Over his last 10 games, Andrus is batting .324, with three stolen bases, one home run, and a .385 OBP. Walker has really struggled on the mound this year, so this could be a great matchup for Andrus on Thursday. 

OF- Travis Jankowski (vs. Jeff Hoffman): $3,600. As I've already mentioned in this article, Hoffman has really struggled on the mound recently. If Jankowski can get on base, there is a great chance he is stealing a base considering he has 30 on the year in only 280 at bats. 

OF- Ian Desmond (vs. Taijuan Walker): $4,100. Walker is coming off his worst start of the season, which seems to be a repeating pattern. Over Desmond's last 10 games, he is batting .275, with 10 runs scored, and a .356 OBP (9.1 points per game in that span on DraftKings).

OF- Nelson Cruz (vs. Derek Holland): $4,800. Cruz has hit two home runs off Holland in 17 career at bats. Obviously Cruz is facing a left-handed pitcher, which should bode well for him.
