1. Jon Lester (FD > $11,000 – DK > $12,500) – Great matchup for Lester based the direction of both franchises. The Cubs have won four of their last six while a couple of their bats are coming around. The dominating start by Robbie “Porn Star” Ray will lead to much attention by Fantasy owners looking to play an ace. Jon is back pitching at a high level (3-0 in his last five starts with 35 Ks over 29.2 innings> His resume is short against the Padres (1-1 with 3.44 ERA). I expect a solid game, but he may fall short of being the best ace on the night.

2. David Price (FD > $10,300 – DK > $11,000) – There is no doubt Price has been a rough ride in all formats in 2016. I do give him props for coming up with a big game (real baseball not Fantasy) in his start on the road against the Orioles. Over his five starts, David is 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA. In his career, the Rays have hit him pretty good (5.11 ERA over 37 innings), but he did create an edge in Ks (44). Many times the star that doesn’t shine brightly is the one that ends up being the right play.
