Ariel Epstein talks about his top games on the MLB DFS roster on Friday, June 24th.
Ariel Epstein: Welcome to Sportzshala Fantasy. I’m a prop queen, Ariel Epstein, I broke down in Major League Baseball today. I start with a pitcher. For $42, I like LA Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias. The Atlanta Braves have the second highest K-stat when facing left-handed pitchers.
Looking back at Urias’ history against Atlanta in the last couple of seasons, he was successful against the Braves last year, allowing a maximum of 2 runs in the two starts he had against Atlanta. In both of those games, he had at least five strikeouts. In any case, Urias has scored at least six strikeouts in the last three of four games this season. With his past against the Braves, with his good road ERA at 2.5, get Urias in my lineup for $42.
Now about the location of the players. For $19, I like St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado. Unlike Chicago’s starter Kyle Hendrix, Arenado hit three home runs with 4 RBIs in 36 at-bats. Arenado has been in an absolute tear lately, hitting .348 over the past seven days. His home batting average is higher than away with .298 at home. In addition, in the last six games – as I mentioned, the last week has been a very hot one for Arenado – he has had three home runs, and in four of the last six games he has had many hits. I like Nolan Arenado tonight for $19.
For 18 bucks, I like Colorado Rockies first baseman CJ Krohn. He’s up against Minnesota right-hander Dylan Bundy, where Kron went .353, 6 of 17, a double, three home runs, 5 RBIs. I love the fact that Kron also played for Minnesota back in 2019. He hasn’t played at Target Field since he was with the Twins, but he knows the ballpark. 10 home runs were hit in this park. History of home runs against Bundy, history in the park. Give me $18 CJ Cron in my lineup.
Here’s your Sportzshala Fantasy Major League Baseball review. As for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias, I like him for $42. $19, St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado. And an $18 game on Colorado Rockies first baseman CJ Cron. That’s it for me, prop queen Ariel Epstein, here at MLB’s Daily Fantasy. Good luck with your lineup tonight.
