My full lineup:

SP: Jake Arrieta ($59) - On a run of 16 consecutive winning decisions, if I see Arrieta on my DFS list, I'm not asking questions, I'm just reaching for my wallet.

SP: Andrew Cashner ($35) - Owns a career 2.71 ERA mark at home in Petco, and facing Rockies starter Eddie Butler, who owns a career 5.99 ERA and .323 BAA in 97.2 IP

C: Steve Clevenger ($7) - Cost-saving move as he's likely to be behind the plate for M's - Chris Iannetta has caught past four games and has been owned by Oakland starter Sonny Gray in his career (.067 BA) - Clevenger is 1-for-3 vs. Gray, with a HR.

1B: Jose Abreu ($17) - Riding a six-game hit streak (multiple hits in five of those contests) and facing Boston knuckleballer Steven Wright, who Abreu went 1-for-3 against with a HR in his only previous meeting.

2B: Darwin Barney ($7) - Ryan Goins is just 2-for-35 in his past 11 games and is hitting .158 against lefties. It's a good time for a Barney spot start facing Texas LHP Martin Perez.

3B: Josh Donaldson ($26) - He crushes at home in Toronto (30 HR in 104 career games), and he's had little problem handling Texas pitcher Martin Perez in the past (.385, HR in 13 career ABs).

SS: Didi Gregorius ($10) - Has been landing on the pine often against lefties, but he should be good to go against Baltimore RHP Chris Tillman, who he has collected four hits against in seven career ABs.

OF: Giancarlo Stanton ($24) - Have no problem paying up for Stanton, who is on a seven-game hitting streak that includes five home runs, and is facing Arizona LHP Patrick Corbin, who has served up a league-high seven home runs.

OF: Jackie Bradley ($8) - On an eight-game hitting streak that includes 9 RBI - is 2-for-6 in his career vs. White Sox starter Jose Quintana.

OF: Preston Tucker ($7) - Getting regular playing time at the moment with Carlos Gomez on the mend (ribs) - homered on Monday in first game versus MInnesota, and now faces Twins wild thing RHP Alex Meyer, making his MLB starting debut.
