Daily Dime: Ross, Puig and a Mets stack

Daily Dime: Ross, Puig and a Mets stack

As always when playing Yahoo Daily Fantasy Baseball, be sure to check the final lineups and the weather.

With more options available for contests that start at 7:05 ET, I’m going to concentrate on Wednesday’s later batch of games.

My full lineup:

SP: Joe Ross $43

SP: Nathan Eovaldi $34

C: Travis d’Arnaud $11

1B: Miguel Cabrera $18

2B: Neil Walker $15

3B: Adrian Beltre $19

SS: Jed Lowrie $9

OF: Yasiel Puig $19

OF: Curtis Granderson $15

OF: Michael Conforto $17

Ross continues to look like a budding ace yet still isn’t priced as such...Eovaldi has an ugly ERA so far, but that’s come with a 15:2 K:BB ratio over 11.2 innings. The Yankees are the second biggest favorites on the board during Wednesday’s slate, and he’s affordable...Jeremy Hellickson has thrown fairly well so far this season, but I went with a Mets stack, as d’Arnaud, Walker, Conforto and Granderson all have attractive price tags.

Cabrera is hitting just .255/.352/.383 on the year, but there’s zero reason not to treat him like the star he’s always been, and there are eight first basemen who are costlier Wednesday. Cabrera owns a career 1.357 OPS versus Ian Kennedy...Beltre has walked (five) more times than he’s fanned (three) so far this season, so he’s been seeing the ball well. Beltre has hit .348 with zero strikeouts over 23 career at bats against Doug Fister.

Lowrie is simply a cheap option, and he’s hitting in a favorable park. Puig has only one homer on the year, but he’s batting .347/.429/.510 and looks terrific. He’s still not quite being priced like a star among outfielders and has hit Julio Teheran well throughout his career.

Good luck with your contests Wednesday.
