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?

2014 RotoRob MLB Draft Kit: Top 65 Prospects, Part VI

July 21, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
The Pirates’ first rounder from 2010 is still only 22, so we maintain our belief in him as a top 10 prospect despite this setback which derails any value he might have had this year. Now, we’ll have to wait until 2015 before this talented hurler is unleashed on the majors. This kid has the potential to average better than a strikeout per inning, and the valuable experience he accrued at Double-A last year should allow him to hit the ground running as soon as he’s healthy. Taillon hasn’t put together impressive won-loss records in the minors, but we’re not worried. A mid-season Eastern League All-Star last year, he really helped alleviate our worries about home run issues last year — and that was the one weakness he had. Every other part of the towering 6′6″ righty’s game should translate well into the bigs when he arrives.
