Top DFS Plays for 08/06/14

*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.

Top DFS Pitcher for today:

Odrisamer Despaigne vs. Minnesota Twins – Say that name 10 times fast, whew! Despaigne has struggled over his last two starts but has been very solid this season. He is 1-2 with a 2.04 ERA on the road this season. He isn’t the flashiest pitcher going today but for his price he will go 7 strong and get the W, which means you can load up on hitters today.

Music of the Day – The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways by Crown the Empire – I am not a huge fan of the genre but these guys are awesome. I have seen them in concert several times and this album is worth a listen for sure.
