Amed Rosario ($3,900 DK, $2,900 FD)
Amed Rosario has been batting cleanup against lefties, making him an exciting choice for DFS players. Facing another left-handed pitcher, Rosario’s batting position in one of the league’s best offenses at such an affordable price makes him an excellent pick for Thursday’s games.
Joey Votto ($4,300 DK, $3,100 FD)
Joey Votto‘s recent two-homer performance showcased his power and potential to rack up fantasy points. With an impressive record this season, Votto is a reliable option to add to your roster. Keep an eye on him as he faces the competition on Thursday.
Tommy Edman ($3,300 DK, $2,800 FD)
Tommy Edman‘s return from the IL has added depth to the Cardinals’ lineup. He has a positive history against Sonny Gray, which bodes well for his chances in the upcoming game. While Edman’s role may be scrutinized with the presence of a talented prospect, he has the potential to contribute significantly and score big for your DFS team.
Christopher Morel ($5,000 DK, $4,100 FD)
Christopher Morel has been a force to reckon with against right-handed pitchers, boasting impressive stats in this category. With 13 homers, a .367 OBP, .279 ISO, and a 154 wRC+, Morel promises to be a game-changer in your DFS roster.
Yordan Alvarez ($6,000 DK, $4,300 FD)
Alvarez’s recent performance since returning from the IL has been nothing short of spectacular. With two homers, four RBI, and five runs scored in just six games, he’s proving to be a force in the lineup. Clarke Schmidt, the opposing pitcher, has shown vulnerability to left-handed hitters, making Alvarez a prime choice to add to your DFS team.
Jack Suwinski ($3,600 DK, $3,100 FD)
