Last week, we wrote a review of Draftster.com. Today, we’ll offer up some tips for play for Tuesday, July 22 on Draftster.com.

Other than a poor May, outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has generally been paying off for the Yankees so far, going 2-for-4 with a homer Monday to jack his BA up to .291, thanks to a .395 roll over the last nine games. And lately, he’s been smacking the Rangers around (10-for-23 in the last five games), so go ahead and invest the $9,200 it will take to land him.

Looking for an even bigger bargain in the outfield? How about San Franciso’s Hunter Pence ($5,100)? After going 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a steal Monday, he’s now 7-for-14 over the last three games. Pence has particularly excelled when hitting out of the leadoff spot, going 20-for-59 (.339). Oh, and guess who now leads the NL in mutli-hit games? Troy Tulowitzki? Nope. Andrew McCutchen? Wrong again. It’s Pence, with 37 such games to his credit already. This is as good as Pence has looked since that phenomenal third of a season after he was traded to the Phillies in 2011.

Boston’s Mike Napoli won’t come cheap at first base ($6,600), but he is a notoriously streaky hitter, and he’s currently on one of his hot runs. He’s gone yard in back-to-back games and is 8-for-15 over the last four games. Napoli has certainly had no issues raking against the Jays this year, either (8-for-16).

If you’re going to go big with a starter Tuesday, how about LA’s Josh Beckett ($8,500) in Pittsburgh? Over his last nine starts, he has a 1.74 ERA, giving up two earned runs or less in eight of them. But on the road, Beckett has been untouchable lately, winning his last four starts while failing to surrender a single earned run over 27 innings. Smoking!

Seeking a cheap option at catcher? How about Minnesota’s Kurt Suzuki ($4,600)? He was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI Monday, raising his BA to .311 with 40 RBI in 289 at-bats. With very little fanfare, Suzuki is putting up career slash line numbers, so if you find yourself stuck at backstop, consider him.

A cheaper shortstop option ($5,400) is Erick Aybar of the Angels, expected to start Tuesday after missing a few games because of a groin injury (he did pinch hit Monday). Prior to the injury, Aybar had a 10-game hitting streak, so perhaps it’s worth it to see if he can keep the good vibes going.

Now it’s your turn. Who would you recommend for daily fantasy baseball play for Tuesday?

RotoDerby June Update: Is Bautista Broken?

July 2, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments (0)
The strategy for amassing our Good Eyes team was to find guys with power or power potential, who struck out less than 100 times last season. Three months into the season the experiment is now flowing, but not gushing like we hoped.

RotoDerby Update: Edwin Encarnacion Crushing it

June 7, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments Comments Off
After laying a big fat zero for us in April, Edwin Encarnacion exploded in May with 16 homers, 34 RBI and just 15 strikeouts. Interestingly enough, his BABIP went from .312 in April to .195 in May, so basically it was an all-or-nothing month. In fact, half of EE’s hits were homers in May (97 points).

RotoDerby Update: April Showers

May 6, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments (0)
In the first month of 2014 he had two homers and 25 strikeouts. With the Jays struggling, Double-E could find himself on the trade market later this season and a move anywhere will hurt his homer numbers given that he already plays in the major’s top dinger ballpark (so far this season, anyway).
