My full lineup (for all games starting after 4 pm PT):

SP: Zack Greinke ($47) -  Greinke is 7-1 in his past nine starts, six of them of the Quality Start variety. And he'll face a Tampa Bay offense that has produced the sixth-worst OBP in MLB against right-handed pitching.

SP: Jacob deGrom ($47) -  deGrom owns a 1.35 ERA in his career 13.1 IP against Pittsburgh, a team that has lost seven of its past nine games. deGrom is also 2-0 with a 2.03 ERA in five home starts this season.

C: Buster Posey ($14) -  Posey is just 2-for-23 in his past six games, which certainly has contributed to his affordability for Tuesday's DFS slate. That makes it easy to roll the dice on a slump-busting effort against Boston RHP Rick Porcello - 5.40 ERA in his past three turns. 

1B: Eric Hosmer ($22) - Hosmer, on pace for the best offensive season of his career, owns a lifetime 1.043 OPS in 29 career ABs vs. generous BAL RHP Ubaldo Jimenez.

2B: Rob Refsnyder ($9) -  Angels will send LHP David Huff to the hill on Tuesday for his '16 MLB debut. He owns a lifetime 5.08 ERA in 388 IP, and was sitting on a 5.40 ERA after three starts at Triple-A Salt Lake before his call-up. I like the scenario for Refsnyder, a low budget option that actually has some bat skills.

3B: Justin Turner ($9) -  Turner is still trying to regain his form of the past couple years, but there's a history card on Tuesday that can't be ignored given the mere $9 price tag - he's 8-for-11 (.727 BA) against Colorado RHP Eddie Butler.

SS: Ketel Marte ($11) -  Marte went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's return from a thumb injury that landed him on the DL. He faces Clevaland RHP Cody Anderson, who has allowed 30 Runs (including 10 home runs) in just 39.1 IP this season. Marte was 1-for-2 when the M's knocked around Anderson for 5 ER in 3.2 IP back on April 21.

OF: Nelson Cruz ($17) -  Cruz has been a top 20 roto bat over the past month (8 HR) and, like teammate Marte (see above), he should benefit on Tuesday from a matchup vs. Cleveland RHP Cody Anderson.

OF: Matt Kemp ($13) - Kemp has hit three home runs to go with 11 RBI and 11 runs in his past 11 games. Given the solid recent production and the fact that he'll face an Atlanta starter (RHP Aaron Blair) that has allowed 20 ER in his past four starts (14.2 IP), you have to like the cost-to-upside ratio for Kemp.

OF: Joc Pederson ($12) -  Plausible home run upside is always key when plugging in low-cost bats into your DFS lineup, and Pederson at least offers that - 8 HR in '16, 34 HR in 676 career ABs. And he faces Colorado RHP Eddie Butler (5.65 ERA), who has allowed three home runs in his past nine innings.
