Top DFS Plays for 07/27/14

*Top hitters and pitchers highlight exceptional matchups that may include stars, lesser-known players and those on your waiver wires.

When I put together my top hitters and pitchers I factor in several things. First, prior matchup history, whether the hitter is hot and the pitcher’s history against that type of batter. Also, these matchups are normally released in the morning so make sure that you double-check the weather leading up to games in case they were postponed or the player got the day off.

Matzek struggles against righties as they are hitting .305 with 3 HR & 17 RBI on the season. I expect ‘Cutch’ to welcome the young man to the show on Sunday.
