ATL-COL 12
MIN-BOS 9.5
ARI-CIN 9.5

2. Weather: Pittsburgh and Miami both have strong chances of thunderstorms, but we should be okay regardless. Check Twitter closer to game time.

4. Your three biggest pitching favorites for the night: Max Scherzer (-320) against San Diego, David Price (-265) against Minnesota and Tyler Anderson (-190) against Atlanta.

5. Sneaky stack options: The Red Sox aren't exactly sneaky,

Must-Start of the day: Max Scherzer, WAS

The fantasy community will be split on Max or Jose on Saturday, but I'm going Max for a few simple reasons. First, Scherzer is going up against Edwin Jackson, while Fernandez is battling against Jacob deGrom. Scherzer is also a much, much bigger favorite and is $800 cheaper. I have no issues saving the money and targeting the Padres.

Deal of the day: Sandy Leon, BOS

Make sure he starts, but Leon is slashing .417/.455/.694 this year and gets a matchup with Ricky Nolasco, who is projected to allow plenty of damage on Saturday. At just $3000, Leon is a steal.

Avoid of the day: Matt Kemp, SD

Kemp is absolutely owned by Max Scherzer. Over his career, Kemp has only managed one hit in 27 at-bats against Mad Max.

Stack of the day: Arizona Diamondbacks

This game has one of the highest over/under totals outside of Coors Field, and opposing pitcher Keyvius Sampson has given up 5 HR in 16 innings pitched this year. Priced at $4000, Draft Kings isn't expecting Sampson to do to well against a good D-Backs lineup.

Starting pitchers:

Max Scherzer, WAS: "Must-start of the day"

Jose Fernandez, MIA: If you can find a way to afford both pitchers, go for it. Fernandez has a great matchup in his own right against a Mets team that strikes out a lot, so this could be a massive game for him. The win is just in question.

Jeff Samardzija, SF: If you need a mid-range option and can't spend up for two aces, Samardzija provides good value at $7200 against the Yankees. He has some strikeout upside at that price, but we're focused more on his matchup with Ivan Nova, which should give him a good shot at a win.

Catchers:

Wilson Ramos, WAS: Hitting .334 this year and gets Edwin Jackson.

Sandy Leon, BOS: "Deal of the day"

First basemen:

Victor Martinez, DET: Martinez is 18-for-36 with 4 HR against Chris Sale lifetime.

Albert Pujols, LAA: Pujols is 7-for-19 against Collin McHugh lifetime.

Second basemen:

Jose Altuve, HOU: Altuve is 13-for-33 against Jered Weaver.

Jean Segura, ARI: Hitting .314 this year with 16 SB, and part of our D-Backs stack.

Third basemen:

Jake Lamb, ARI: Power source (21 HR) gets a juicy matchup against Sampson.

Danny Valencia, OAK: Automatic consideration anytime he gets a southpaw (1.036 OPS this year against LHP).

Shortstops:

Marcus Semien, OAK: .959 OPS against LHP this season.

Xander Bogaerts, BOS: Good price ($4400) if you want a piece of the Red Sox against Nolasco.

Outfielders:

George Springer, HOU: Springer is 8-for-18 with 2 HR against Weaver.

Carlos Gonzalez, COL: Matt Wisler gets rocked by lefties, and this game has a massive run total. If you want a piece of Coors, CarGo is the one to pay up for.

Adam Jones, BAL: Jones is 8-for-15 against Josh Tomlin.
