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 – We actually took Freeman in our last MKF play on 5/4 and he did contribute as much as we expected but it didn’t matter since the other two stepped it up for us. He’s going to face the Phillies and Vince Velasquez tonight who he has absolutely peppered in his career. He has 29 career at bats against Velasquez and he is hitting .345 against him. He also has 3 doubles, 4 RBIs, 5 runs scored, and 4 walks against him. We will take the points however we can get them out of Freddie tonight but he should deliver in one way or another for us.
Nick Ahmed – I’d be willing to bet that you guys didn’t expect this name to be on the list. Ahmed has actually absolutely RAKED against Joey Lucchesi in his career. 7-16 (.438 avg), 2 homeruns, 1 triple, 5 RBIs and 5 runs scored. He also has a .938 slugging percentage against the guy so he sees the ball well against him. Lucchesi is also coming off of a start where he was hit hard and allowed 6 runs over 2.2 innings. Great matchup for Nick tonight. Shout out to East Longmeadow!!
Jose Altuve – I get it, you guys don’t want to cheer for the little guy because he’s a cheater. They must have been banging on the fucking trashcans the last couple of nights because he’s been tearing it up. He has 13 fantasy points in his last two games. He will be going up Steven Matz tonight who has been struggling in his last two starts allowing 11 runs in 8.2 innings pitched. Matz is also a lefty which is another x factor here because Altuve has been smashing vs lefties this season and comes into tonight with a .378 avg against lefties. Cheer for the little guy tonight because either way, he’s going to put up some fantasy points for us in this matchup.
