We are swinging away with another Monkey Knife Fight Challenge tonight. We have been successful so far this season hitting a +300 HERE, a +360 HERE, a +150 HERE, and a +150 HERE. We are up 8 units in the last week on Monkey Knife Fight contests. If you haven’t already jumped on the bandwagon to try it out, you can join today and claim your SIGN UP BONUS up to $100. For those of you who joined last Tuesday and played our MKF challenges, you’re up $400! Let’s get into tonight’s challenge.
Main Game Slate – Fantasy Challenge Over 11.5 Fantasy Points for a 1.5 (+150) payout. We need an average of 4 fantasy points per player to go over 11.5.
Freddie Freeman – Freeman has a nice matchup tonight against Joe Ross who he is 5 for 10 against lifetime with 2 homeruns. He also has 4 runs scored and 4 RBI’s in his matchups against Ross. He’s been cold his last 4 games but he should break out of his slump tonight against Ross who he has great history against.
Xander Bogaerts – Xander comes in hitting .349 on the season and he will face Michael Fulmer who he is 3 for 6 against lifetime with a homerun. I expect him to be right in the middle of the Red Sox attack tonight against a Tigers team who has the worst bullpen in the league. Bogaerts is coming off of a game where he had 9 fantasy points going 3 for 4 with a homerun and 2 runs scored on Sunday. You have to dig into the record books a little bit for this stat but the last time Bogaerts faced Fulmer at Fenway, he hit a homerun off of him. That game was on July 27, 2016.
DJ LeMahieu – LeMahieu will be playing in the Tuesday Night ESPN game for your viewing pleasure. It’s always more fun when you can keep track of your plays by watching them! DJ will face the grunter Zack Greinke who he has seen a lot of in his career. He’s 17 for 58 (.293) with 5 doubles, 1 homerun, 5 runs, and 8 RBI’s against him. Greinke has been winning this season but his starts have turned out to be high scoring games. That’s something you love to see when you have a guy like DJ going for fantasy points tonight. DJ has multiple fantasy point games in 4 out of his last 6 games.
