The NFL fantasy games are over for week 1 and a boat load of cash was made! You could spend the next two days researching for fantasy football for Week 2, but why not throw some fantasy baseball lineups in for Tuesday and build up you Fantasy Aces bank roll? I’ve done the research and here are your top plays for Fantasy Aces on Tuesday!
@mattbell211’s fantasy baseball advice is specifically for Fantasy Aces MLB roster format which is slightly different (in a good way!) than any other daily fantasy baseball rosters in the DFS world. 1B/3B (corner infielders) & 2B/SS (interior infielders) are interchangeable. There are also fantasy players that are specifically labeled IF (infield). These IF players are essentially infield utility players and can be plugged in at any infield position. Fantasy Aces also has a Utility Players (any position except pitcher). The flexibility in building your roster is a great feature on Fantasy Aces and opens up a variety of options!
Tony Cingrani – Tony is 7-3 on the year with an ERA of 2.80. He’s got a nice match up with the Chicago Cubs who are hitting .233 versus left-handed pitching this year. The Cubs are also in the top half of the MLB for most strike outs versus left-handed pitching this year. Cingrani is averaging 10 strike outs per 9 innings pitched this year and has been very good this year since the all-star break. He’s my choice for the top daily fantasy pitcher on Tuesday!
Matt Wieters – He’s 11 of 26 with 4 home runs versus Ivan Nova and hitting .313 with 3 home runs in his last 10 games. Those are pretty good numbers for success on Tuesday, but I’d hope to see him a little higher in the batting order than where he was Monday.
Victor Martinez (only DH eligible on Fantasy Aces) – He’s hitting .354 the last 30 days and taking on a young pitcher in only his second performance which should make for daily fantasy heaven. He’s hitting .305 versus right-handed pitching and .283 on the road this year.
AJ Ellis – Ellis doesn’t have great advantages, but he does have some nice BVP for us on Tuesday. He’s 7 of 16 against Trevor Cahill in previous match ups.
Buster Posey –He’s 7 of 19 versus De La Rosa and hitting .410 the last 10 games. Posey is known for crushing left-handed pitching and batting .353 against them this year.
Nick Swisher – I don’t know if I have the guts to roll him out in daily fantasy, but he looks good on paper versus Guthrie. Guthrie is allowing left-handed batters to crush him this year and Swisher is 13 of 37 with 2 home runs against him.
Adam Lind – He also has a match up with a pitcher in Jerome Williams who has a hard time getting left-handed batters out. Lind is hitting .294 versus right-handed pitching this year and has a lot of power.
Joey Votto – Votto is 4 of 13 against Edwin Jackson and hitting .329 against right-handed pitching. Votto seems to always find a way to get some positive fantasy points.
Prince Fielder – Fielder gets a match up with the young right-handed pitcher V-Mart is facing and Fielder is actually hitting .417 with 2 home runs in his last 10 games. He’s got his average up while hitting .327 in the last 30 days.
Miguel Cabrera – A rookie pitcher versus Miggy? Yes! PLEASE!
Conor Gillaspie – If you choose not to pay for Miggy which is not a bad idea how about Conor? He’s 5 of 12 against Porcello with a home run. Porcello is allowing left-handed batters to hit .313 against him this year and Gillaspie is hitting .303 with 2 home runs in the last 10 games.
Josh Donaldson – I usually don’t like him against right-handed pitching, but why not Tuesday? He’s batting .325 with 2 home runs in the last 10 games and hitting .281 against right-handed pitching with an easy pitcher on the mound.
Jason Kipnis – Kipnis was the hottest second baseman for daily fantasy players earlier in the year, but has cooled off a bit. He’s got a match up with Guthrie who I’ve already said struggles against left-handed hitters. Kipnis is 5 of 8 with 1 home run off Guthrie and has him at home in this match up.
Ryan Goins – Again Jerome Williams has trouble with left-handed batters and Goins is hitting .351 against right-handed pitching since coming up. He’s also hitting .364 at home this year to go with that.
Matt Carpenter – You will have to pay to get him on your team, but he’s worth it. He’s batting .341 in the last 10 games and crushes right-handed pitching at home with averages well in the .300’s.
Jordy Mercer – Mercer doesn’t have a lot to show you, but he’s better on the road this year. He’s also hitting .406 versus left-handed pitching and won’t cost you much.
Jed Lowrie – He’s hitting .308 on the road this year and facing a bad pitcher on Tuesday which is usually good for a daily fantasy player wanting to add up the points. Lowrie is hitting .284 against right-handed pitching.
Mike Trout – He’s hitting .455 in the last 10 games and gets a left-handed pitcher on the road Tuesday. He’s hitting .333 versus left-handed pitching and .345 on the road this year.
Shin-Soo Choo – He’s 10 of 25 against Edwin Jackson and hitting .459 with 3 home runs over the last 10 games. He’s hitting .329 versus right-handed pitching and .320 at home this year.
Bryce Harper – Dillon Gee struggles to get left-handed batters out and Harper hits .306 against right-handed pitching this year.
Christian Yelich – Julio Tehran is allowing left-handed batters to hit.299 against him this year and Yelich is hitting .419 for September crushing right-handed pitching. He’s batting .375 with a home run over the last 10 games.
Austin Jackson – Jackson is heating up hitting .341 in the last 10 games and batting .304 versus right-handed pitching. Oh Yeah, he’s also facing a young pitcher who he should exploit!
