Top DFS Plays for 08/21/14

*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 hitters for today:

Seth Smith vs. Zack Greinke – hitting .400 (6/15) with 3 2Bs, a HR & a RBI
I like the matchup if you go with any other pitcher.

Joe Mauer vs. Corey Kluber – hitting .385 (5/13) with a 2B, a 3B, a HR, 3 RBIs & 3 BBs

Torii Hunter vs. Alex Cobb – hitting .400 (6/15) with a 2B, 3 RBIs & a BB
Hunter has been in a slump and I believe he can start to pull out of it today against Cobb

Freddie Freeman vs. David Holmberg – no previous matchup history
Holmberg was just murdered in his first outing and lefties knocked him around with 2 bombs. Freeman goes yard tonight. Book it.

Jayson Heyward vs. David Holmberg – no previous matchup history
See Above

Ricky’s HR Guarantee: Freddie Freeman

Top DFS Pitcher for today:

David Price vs. Tampa Bay Rays – Price vs. Old Team??? Yeah. Must Start

Zack Grienke vs. San Diego Padres – Grienke is 6-2 with 2.48 ERA in 11 starts at home this season. Great matchup for today.

TV Show of the Day – Dexter – One of the best TV Shows ever, okay well after like season 4 or 5 it was terrible. But the 1st few seasons it was fantastic., one of the few shows I would recommend checking out and watching from start to finish.
