Buster Posey (SF) – Posey is our second ranked hitter this evening and he belongs in all formats, particularly cash games. The Giants face the biggest park shift out of any team in action tonight (from AT&T Park to Coors Field) and they also get to face a mediocre southpaw. Posey has accrued a .429 wOBA, 182 wRC+ (despite playing half of his games at AT&T Park, an extreme pitching environment) and a .252 ISO against LHP since 2012. Those skills makes him a can’t miss DFS option at a position that usually lacks reliable options and that’s compounded by playing at Coors Field. Jorge De La Rosa has allowed a .347 wOBA, 1.11 home runs per nine and has struck out 15 percent of RHBs in the last few seasons. Posey has all the contextual factors and a remarkable matchup against a LHP that allows plenty of contact. I’m prioritizing him in cash games tonight.
