Speaker 0 00:00:00 Ladies and John you're listening to the fantasy alarm, lb DFS podcast with host John Iemma and James Grande. Speaker 1 00:00:10 What's going on? I a nation John PMA here with James Grandi is the quick pitch lb DFS podcast recording here for Tuesday's 11 game main slate, James, as we said before, the MBCs and quickly winding down. But that doesn't mean we don't have any DFS to cover big slate. Why don't we just jump into it, man? Speaker 2 00:00:25 Yeah, I'm ready. Let's Speaker 1 00:00:26 Get into it. 11 games pitching top price guy, Dylan sees on the slate feels like it's been a while since I've seen a Dylan sees pitching slate here. The last time out against Colorado, not great. Five innings, three R eight strikeouts to strikeouts. Keep on being consistent, pitching really as well as, as he has been reliable start of it. Is he reliable enough for you to wanna pay $11,000 for on Speaker 2 00:00:46 Drafting? I would, because I think we know what the upside is. We know there's 40 in his bags, so I'm okay. Going C at 11 K I'm also okay. Feeding it. I think there's, you know, if that's where you wanna go by all means. I think I look just looking at the list initially. I see two guys that are gonna be Uber chalk that are $2,000 less than him. So, you know, if you wanna get some exposure to CS 11, K a lot of people are gonna be in this nine K range in Luis Castillo, Charlie Morton, right territory. So by all means place C I mean he has 40 fantasy point upside. Speaker 1 00:01:18 Uh, we have nest store lefty versus a pirates match up here and had been limiting him just 65 pitches. Last time out against Boston five innings, our earn run seven strike. Great matchup. But are you're just too worried about the pitch count here? Speaker 2 00:01:31 Yeah, I mean, I could see a scenario where he throws 75 80 pitches, but that's like almost top end of what he's gonna throw. So sure. I think in tournaments maybe, but like if you're building one lineup. No, thanks. If you're building multiple lineups. Sure. Speaker 1 00:01:48 Okay. You mentioned Castillo Morton. Is that where your, your nine K range talks and stops? Speaker 2 00:01:52 Yeah, I mean, Castillos just continues to be, you know, super consistent. I mean, you'd have to, there's been one starts since he arrived in Seattle in which he didn't have double digit fantasy points in which he didn't have 19 or more fantasy points. Like the guy's just been incredible all year long and then Morton gets Washington and I think we like Washington more against left. We saw Kyle Wright look super sharp, um, Monday. So yeah, I think Morton and Castillo are probably the two guys at the Speaker 1 00:02:21 Yeah. Morton one star againsts Washington this year seven innings, two earned seven strikeouts. Hasn't been great. Lately three start three was last four starts she's allowed four or four runs, but we know again, Atlanta likely a, a big win equity team. You said earlier today to what? Minus three 40 to get the win. So yep. Likely gonna be in that same range here in the spot as well. Tyler Anderson, what are your thoughts? There is gonna be returned from the paternity to lefty against. Arizona's been a spot we've been targeting of late strikeouts. Not really great for him, but he just faced them in his last start before going on the paternity leave a seven shout out two strikeouts for him there. 19 fantasy points. Speaker 2 00:02:55 Yeah. We used him in this. Yeah, we did in this outing. Look at, he's not gonna strike guys out and he's still gonna give us seven scoreless. I have no problem. We've we've touted him quite literally all year. And he continues to just win games because the offense is he continues to pitch. I mean, we're approaching a two, five era, like this is elite territory. I know people were worried about the Dodgers when they lost Bueller and Kershaw got hurt again and whatnot, but they, everyone else has stepped up. Anderson included. Yeah, I think he's perfectly fine. I would say cash games more than anything else. I'm not really, you know, I don't think there's a ton of GDP upside. Sure. Especially when you can get Morton and Castillo for 400, $5, 400 and 500 respectively. More like I would just go there in tournaments. But I definitely think Anderson is in play in cash games. Speaker 1 00:03:37 Sure. Value tier know, are you looking at Sandoval against Texas? I know you're a big Sandoval guy. Speaker 2 00:03:43 Yeah. I mean the strikeouts are, you know, when they come, they come in bunches. I know they haven't been, you know, great since that complete game shut out against Detroit back in August, but they've been spacing. His starts out, he's never thrown this many innings. He actually kind of stayed healthy this year. Right. Like not something that we've been, you know, accustomed to him and sub three man, 134 strikeouts and 132 innings this year. So far, the winds have been hard to come by. It's had bad luck there, but yeah, I think Sandoval's another pretty popular option because then you look at the rest of the slate. Like, you know, not a lot on the board. Speaker 1 00:04:22 Yeah. Chorus is on the board here. Right. You're not gonna really like what we got much going on there. Any value here, you know anybody under seven K there's a lot of pictures under seven K this slate. I dunno if you noticed so, but do any of them peak your interest at all? Speaker 2 00:04:36 I mean, Dre, Jameson looked really good in his debut, obviously a different scenario facing the Padres versus the Dodgers, but I mean seven scoreless in his major league debut, five strikeouts. Like, you know, if that's the type of upside we have to look forward to, I'm not against it. Totally. I don't think there's anything else though. Like, yeah. Maybe Louis Ortiz against the Yankees, but the Yankees kind of getting hot right now. And like in the stadium with judge, like one home run away from 60, like, Ugh, like what a like scary place to make your second career starts Speaker 1 00:05:16 Like. Right. I agree. Speaker 2 00:05:17 So probably just Jameson. I don't think we need to really go below. Speaker 1 00:05:22 What about, what about this? I mean, he's a lefty, so we wear you a little bit, but Joey went pitch pitching. Okay. For Detroit here Speaker 2 00:05:29 He's okay. Right. He's Speaker 1 00:05:31 Okay. Nothing, nothing like outstanding obviously, but you know, Houston four innings, two earn five Ks, Kansas city six and two third. Shut out five Ks there. So Speaker 2 00:05:42 A lot of pitches too. So we're not really overly concerned with pitch count either 90, 91 pitches for him and his last start. So, Speaker 1 00:05:50 Yep. So that's something to look at. We're not gonna play Dre Jameson, I imagine right against the Dodgers. Speaker 2 00:05:55 No, I mean, I that's the only guy I mentioned yeah. In that tier, I think he would be the only other one I would Speaker 1 00:06:03 Consider catcher. Then at the top, again, some high price guys, big slates, a lot of options here today. You know, we got Ruman again against the left. You know, when stacking against Corbin with the catchers for Atlanta Contreras or Darnell, the likely gonna be fairly popular option here. Any, any obvious spots for you? Speaker 2 00:06:19 The Braves, the Braves. Sure. Fairly obvious spots. And then like sub 4k, James McCann against the lefty. Joey bar Speaker 1 00:06:27 Against the lefty cores. 20 Speaker 2 00:06:29 Joey Bart in cores. Yeah. Joey baring cores. Thomas Nito. If he starts over McCann, Nitos been amazing lately. I don't understand what's going on. But four 19 average, 1100 ops, $2,700 gets a, it gets Speaker 1 00:06:43 Ash Ashby coming off the IL. Speaker 2 00:06:45 Yeah. I think, I think NTO is just as good of a play as Bart probably doesn't have like the home run upside, but he has it to him runs in his last 10 games. So think that for Speaker 1 00:06:54 Is worth the first base position. Again, stack spot. If you wanna go Aton against Reagans, that's fine. We're not gonna argue with that. Goldie gets clinger. Freeman gets Jameson CRO. We know in cores, Alonzo versus lefty. Like where are we? Where are we looking to spend here? Speaker 2 00:07:07 I mean, if you're against Jameson, you could definitely play Freeman. I think Alonzo's fine. Pro it's gonna be a bullpen game for the giants. So I think Crohn's fine too. Olson just looks terrible when you start moving blip 5k. But that spot is so good against Corbin. Christian walkers continue to hit leftees yep. Mount castle 42 back in the lineup tonight. Probably interesting spot there. Speaker 1 00:07:33 I agree with you. I'll see. Ty Fran get Sears at 39. I don't mind that spot for him there. JD Davis gets a left hand course. Speaker 2 00:07:41 Yeah. That's interesting. Speaker 1 00:07:43 Right? That's a good spot. Mm-hmm <affirmative> at $3,300. Let's see. VO gets another righty with Morton. You know, not the best matchup again, Morton four earned and three of the last four for Morton. So Voit could be a guy that goes overlooked because of that spot. And maybe there's some power upside for him there. Speaker 2 00:07:59 Sure. Yeah. Martin's not Martin has not been untouchable by any stretch, so Speaker 1 00:08:04 Yeah. And then we could probably Speaker 2 00:08:05 Carlos Santana, John. Yeah. I dunno. What's Speaker 1 00:08:07 Going on today Speaker 2 00:08:08 Twice, twice, which is his second multi-home run game in his last four. He has seven home runs in his last 10 games. Not sure what's going on. Really? Mm-hmm <affirmative> uh, this is we're in 2022 and Carlos Satana is hitting this many home runs it's wild. But uh, I mean, while he is hot might as Speaker 1 00:08:27 Well. Yeah. Where's this price tag I'm I'm like scrolling, Speaker 2 00:08:29 I don't know. 28, 28. Speaker 1 00:08:31 Okay. There he is. Circle of pool holes. Let's see if a bra is in the line Aguilar. Rather if he's in the lineup, would you go back Speaker 2 00:08:36 To him? Mm-hmm <affirmative> yeah. Hit fifth tonight against the lefty. So, yep. Speaker 1 00:08:39 Good spot there. Prodo. Any interest against him was Bundy or VI Paaz? One of the two of us Bundy. Speaker 2 00:08:44 Yeah. I think both are in play for tournament. Okay. Speaker 1 00:08:47 Uh, second base muy bets at the top, you have see semi inverse Sandoval. You have MCM Manon cores. Flos gets a left cores against Freeland. Where are you? Where are you targeting here? Estrada? Probably at 43 versus Freeland. Speaker 2 00:09:01 Yeah, like Estrada 43 Flores 47. I know Wilmer's been a struggling a little bit. We, those two Ryan McMan 48. He led off. Oh, forget it. When GFO against the lefty Jack? Speaker 1 00:09:13 Uh, yes. Speaker 2 00:09:14 42, 4200 Ji against lefty. Speaker 1 00:09:17 Yep. That's a, that's a favorite of ours. S 38 against Corbin as well. Speaker 2 00:09:22 And you could play both because Ren GFO is third base, right? Yep. Eligibility. Yep. Speaker 1 00:09:27 I agree with you. All right, let's go to third base then. Well, Speaker 2 00:09:29 I would play at second. I would play Nick Gordon. Who's been really good for Minnesota lately. Three 13 average thousand ops home run two of three, $3,000 RA. Right now I would probably play Rudolfo Castro against nester and ne stadium. He's been good against lefties, but that's that's it. We can move on there. Sorry. Speaker 1 00:09:50 Okay. No, no. Don't don't apologize. Good plays good plays. You're on the playbook. You'll have him in there. I'm sure. So third base maccha Ramirez. Anado Riley Homer tonight, which are the top guys. Are we looking at here? Speaker 2 00:09:59 Austin? Riley. He's crush left he year. We've talked about it a bunch and he's gonna be, I mean, look, he's gonna be extremely popular. You're not getting, you're not sneaky with your Austin Riley plays, but I think Riley's the top dog above 5k. Speaker 1 00:10:13 Yep. I like that call middle tier. You mentioned we're in GFO, already Escobar versus a lefty at 41. We like Henderson against anybody at 39. So like that's fine long ago against a lefty in cores at 36. Sure. I know. We're uh, we're certainly fans of that. You mentioned JD Davis already. He's got third base eligibility here as well. Anybody that I missed? Speaker 2 00:10:31 No, 2,700. I always throw a manual Rivera out there against lefties. Cause that's all he does. He just hits lefties. If the giants play David VR, he's had just power, just power bat for them. He's first and third in cores. I don't hate that. And then where's our boy, Josh, John $2,300. Speaker 1 00:10:51 Oh yeah. Easy, easy value play. Speaker 2 00:10:53 It's Sandoval. So like we like Sandoval, so yeah. You know, we'll have to see there, but Josh turned 2300 coming off a home run. Speaker 1 00:11:00 Yeah. I don't mind that. That could be, that could be an easy play for us. So for value on a big slate, like this short stop Landor gets a lefty and Ashby at 50 in a good hitters environment in Milwaukee. Turner gets Jameson in 56 Swanson against Corbin at 51. Let's see anybody else in the top tier Speaker 2 00:11:17 For you. No one else. I mean, KARE continues to rake and he gets cranky here. So I, I don't, I would throw KARE in that mix as well. Speaker 1 00:11:25 Yeah. Probably goes a little bit overlooked because it's not a lefty. Right. Just usually you stick him in that way. He's Speaker 2 00:11:29 Been good against writing this year though. So Speaker 1 00:11:31 I mentioned trio earlier again, just, he's just kind of being professional hitter right now, in course. So that works. Our boy Elvis, Andrews Speaker 2 00:11:39 Survival. I mean talk about professional. Talk about our professional hitter dude. He has stolen bases in four of his last five games after like Speaker 1 00:11:45 Games last 10 games, three homers, five stolen bases, a thousand ops Speaker 2 00:11:49 Buckman. Just, just, just Speaker 1 00:11:51 Andrew is locked in. Andrew is locked in. Speaker 2 00:11:53 What's the point? What's the point of like not playing this guy right now Speaker 1 00:11:56 Or is good. 6,500 hour judge also locking in. Speaker 2 00:11:59 Yeah. Yeah, let's Speaker 1 00:12:00 Do that. We'll do that one for sure. Speaker 2 00:12:02 He's he is quite literally having his best months of the year in a season that he is, he has 59 home runs. Yeah. Speaker 1 00:12:10 That's pretty wild. Would you play trout? Speaker 2 00:12:13 He had an off day. Yeah, dude, what again? Like do we Speaker 1 00:12:17 Play in GFO? Speaker 2 00:12:18 It's yeah. They, so when GFO trout have been absolute killers against lefties, so I would 100% play that stack. I think that's my favorite, like two man stack of the slate. Just initial look obviously, Speaker 1 00:12:33 But is like, is Taylor ward very cheap? I hope or can be yeah, probably 39, 3900 Taylor Speaker 2 00:12:39 Award. Probably let's let's go through the rest of the outfield. Right? Cause, and then we'll see if there's gonna be someone like Speaker 1 00:12:43 Cheap. Yeah, that's fine. So we have, so we put in judge in charge just for now that's a six K Lewis, Robert and Eloy or over or 55 and $5,600 Soto. Not there. Stanton, if you want to pivot VAA versus lefty, Blackman, Hagers better been better against righties. I don't really like much of the top tier guys. Honestly, once we get past judge and tread, I don't know if you key in it on anybody. Speaker 2 00:13:05 If J rod doesn't go on the IL or is in the lineup. There's a little back injury there. I would play Julio. Oros sure I like black men in Speaker 1 00:13:13 Sports. I'm glad Julio R gets panned out by the way. Speaker 2 00:13:16 Yeah. I'm so happy. Julio, J rod season, Speaker 1 00:13:19 They gave him the opportunity to actually play right 27 homers, 25 stolen bases. <laugh> Speaker 2 00:13:24 I know just leading off for a potential playoff team. No big deal. Mm-hmm <affirmative> I like Blackman 49 incourse okay. But yeah, I, I largely agree. It's not like a very appealing temperature Speaker 1 00:13:34 Paris first Corbin at 46 mm-hmm <affirmative> Reynolds gets cor nester. Again, Reynold's been bettering if you feel like it and you can, you can probably take your shot there. Speaker 2 00:13:44 McCarthy gets another left. Speaker 1 00:13:45 I know. Right? Does Taylor ward 39 so we can certainly consider Speaker 2 00:13:49 That's a good one. Yeah. He said lefty as Speaker 1 00:13:51 Well. Austin Hayes, anything there? Speaker 2 00:13:53 Yeah. He's gonna lead off. He's gonna lead off with a lefty and the mountain did it again today. So I don't hate that. Okay. So we'll Austin Slater as well. Same price tag. He'll he could lead off. I won't say he will, but could find himself in the lineup with a lefty on the Speaker 1 00:14:09 Hill lane. Thomas keeps hitting well three K Speaker 2 00:14:11 Yep. Yep. We talk about lane Thomas regular. This is we're about to be lane Thomas fan club, Speaker 1 00:14:17 Right? Corey Dickerson 29. We've been playing a lot of him. Speaker 2 00:14:20 Let's see. Just he's just like very in and out of the lineup. Mm-hmm <affirmative> you know, it's been good lately. John, as Waldo Cabra for the Yankees coming off three hit game with a home run. The, the young, the young bucks for the Yankees are starting to starting to show up. And it's no surprise that there's like a correlation between them winning game and them starting to show up mm-hmm <affirmative> cause was Waldo. Perza two K at shorts up also like starting to show up too. Sure. So, but yeah, as Waldo Cabrera, starting to show up, switch hitter, coming off home, run something, something to think about if we're planning Yankee stack. Speaker 1 00:14:56 Yeah. Well like you mentioned, he's 29, 8 72 ops. I don't even have to be a Yankees stack. You can just be a one off of 2,800, so sure. Cause we do need some value. We're gonna need some value here. Let's see Grossman against the lefty at 25. Speaker 2 00:15:08 Yep. He and he, I mean his money side is from the left or from the right side. So yep. Coming off a home run three home runs those last 10 games. John could Speaker 1 00:15:18 Be against Corbin. Speaker 2 00:15:19 Ooh, Speaker 1 00:15:20 Three 23,000 ops. Speaker 2 00:15:23 I'm kind. Speaker 1 00:15:23 Are we clicking the button? Speaker 2 00:15:25 Yeah. Let's click the button. All right. Let's click the button. There's Speaker 1 00:15:28 Our, there's our value. Speaker 2 00:15:30 He's gonna hit ninth. But like if we wanted to play re GFO at third, we could also play like a end. End of line stack. Yeah. With gr Speaker 1 00:15:40 I write that Ji at third Grum at second. Give me your home run call while we're doing this. Speaker 2 00:15:45 How about this? Yeah. Aaron judge ties the record tomorrow. He's gonna hit two. Speaker 1 00:15:53 Okay. Speaker 2 00:15:53 That's my home run call. He goes, he goes double down to tie it. Speaker 1 00:15:58 Okay. Gimme trout double up fielders. Top two guys. We're cheat. Are, are we cheating at cuz we're not being risky, but I don't think so. No. Yeah. Yeah. You got judge. I got trout. Both of them are we're Speaker 2 00:16:08 Fading court. We're fading cores. Speaker 1 00:16:09 We're fading cores. Yeah. They're in our lineups catcher Speaker 2 00:16:13 Position. I got so here I got something for us. So I'm thinking we go, what are your thoughts on, on the mound? I, I was thinking Castillo. Sandoval could be the, what are your thoughts there? Speaker 1 00:16:24 Let me see what we have for, Speaker 2 00:16:26 Cause that would give us 3,200 for first base and catcher and we have options. Bar Thomas Nito has been crazy. Good. Speaker 1 00:16:34 Yeah. Let's go. Let's probably go Bart here Speaker 2 00:16:38 As our, as our one off cores. Speaker 1 00:16:41 Yeah. Cause oh Nitos cheaper, Speaker 2 00:16:44 But probably it wouldn't get us. It wouldn't get us necessarily. Anything different else? Yeah. There Speaker 1 00:16:52 Joel. JD Davis, right? Bar Davis two man stack. Speaker 2 00:16:56 Yeah, I like that. Speaker 1 00:16:57 Okay. So that's what we got. We got Sandoval and Castillo. We have Joey bar, JD Davis sets. Keran first. We have Grum Ren GFO, Andrew judge trout and Grossman gives us a two man at Atlanta stack a two man, San Francisco, I guess, middle to end of the line stack one off Andrews, trout, Ren GFO stack. And then a one off judge. Speaker 2 00:17:19 Love it. We got trout and judge in great spots. Speaker 1 00:17:22 What was, what was Wal? It was a short Speaker 2 00:17:24 Stop as Waldo was a shortstop outfielder short. Speaker 1 00:17:27 Okay. I was just sure if he had second base eligibility. Okay. Speaker 2 00:17:30 No, they actually just moved him to outfield. So he's only outfield eligibility Speaker 1 00:17:34 Now. Oh, there you go then. All right. So that's our lineup. Then we got $300 left over to play with. If anything comes of it, we'll certainly be in the disor James on the playbook. But for now we will catch you guys later.
