Top Hitting Matchups for Week 19 

Brewers @ WAS, vs PIT

Both pitching staffs are in the bottom eight in ERA and the Nats have given up the most longballs in the league. Get the Brewers in your lineups, and don’t forget about newly acquired Carlos Santana!

Padres @ COL, @ LAD

Another couple of staffs sit in the bottom third in ERA. It’s also not shocking that the Rockies have given up the fourth most homers in the league. Ooooh that Coors Exposure!

Reds @ CHC, vs WAS

If you haven’t watched this Reds team play, do yourself a favor and catch a game. A lineup full of breakouts, you’ll be glad you started them this week. They should fill the box score this week.

Sneaky Sneaky

Tigers @ PIT, vs TB

The Pirates are a lineup you’ll always want to target, but the Rays have been getting hit as of late, and even allowed 17 runs to the Astros on Saturday. Spencer Torkelson has come to life recently as well. They make for cheap DFS plays this week.

Waiver Wire Adds

Mike Moustakas, 1B/3B – LAA (available in 80% of Fantrax leagues)

He’s hitting .267 with nine homers this season and should see plenty of time for the Angels due to injuries in the infield.

Sal Frelick , OF – MIL (available in 25% of leagues)

He’s only available in the shallowest of leagues, but if he’s there RUN and grab him! Frelick has hit .304 since his call up.
