Before the games start this week, fantasy managers should try to add as many hitters as possible against the Marlins, Rockies and Mariners. And on the anthemic side, streaming streams from the Royals-Tigers series should be a good idea. Loyal readers will notice a new addition to this column – the Big Boppers section, which identifies opportunities for managers to put their power numbers up.

Matches to target

Marlins @ Rockies

Four games at Coors Field — I don’t need to say much. The Rockies will start two righties and a pair of southpaws, which means managers will have to look for Miami hitters in general. In order of preference, this list includes Jorge Soler (40% registered) Brian de la Cruz (20%) and Garrett Cooper (5%) from Colorado; Charlie Blackmon (40%) Ryan McMahon (49%) Brenton Doyle (5%) and Jurickson Profar (10%) are good options.

A @ sailors

Facing an Oakland staff with a 6.91 ERA through four games, the Mariners are in the most advantageous position of any offense this week. The team doesn’t have too many streaming options, though Eugenio Suarez (67%) and JP Crawford (5%) would be suitable for some specifications. as well as, Cal Raleigh (63%) is a great option for spread catchers in shallow leagues.

Red Sox @ Angels

Boston’s hitters could thrive this week with two Angels starters with an ERA over 5.00 and a shift in relief. Jaime slave. Jaren Duran (60%) of this group are targets in shallow leagues.

Cardinals @ the Reds

St. Louis will enjoy four games where they can create an offense with mediocre starters.Brandon Williamson, Graham Ashcraft, Ben Lively, Luke Weaver.). Most of the top cardinals are internationally registered, however Paul DeJong (5%) is swinging a hot bat and can be considered in 12 team leagues.

white sox @ Guards

Cleveland should enjoy a starting pitcher over 4.50 ERA and a relief corps with a 5.41 ERA in three contests. Josh Naylor (43%) has dual-position eligibility (1B/OF) and is one of the best players to target in this article.

Brewers vs. Astros, Giants

Despite facing some talented Hurricanes, the Brewers have pitched a handful of pitches in four games against right-handed starters. Rowdy Tellez (75%) Ice-cold delayed but should start this week in most leagues.

Matches to avoid

Dodgers @ Braves

The Dodgers’ productive lineup could be handcuffed by three strong starts. Charlie Morton, Spencer Strider And Brice Elder. All three attackers throwing from the right side, Chris Taylor It should be placed everywhere. Michael Vargas He’s a sitter in most leagues.

A @ sailors

Although Oakland has played four games, they face three starters with ERAs under 4.00 and will not be doing any favors from pitcher-friendly Safeco Field. Esther Ruiz In the mixed leagues, the only one worth paying attention to is A’s Qatar.

Giants @ Twins, Brewers

The Giants face three right-handed starters with ERAs under 2.30 before finding a more reasonable matchup against the southpaw. Eric Lauer on Thursday. In the first three games, Wilmer Flores, Casey Schmidt And Mitch Haniger Be on virtual benches.

Looking for theft

Those hoping to pick up a couple more steals this week will need to target the speedsters in these contests.

Guardians vs. Michael Kopech (Wednesday): Kopech ranks sixth in steals allowed, and the guards have the team speed to take advantage of the opportunity to slide. Steven Kwan, Andre Jimenez And Ash Rosario They are the must-start players for this game. Myles Straw Can start in 12 team roto leagues.

Rangers v Rich Hill (Tuesday): Only five Hurricanes have allowed more steals than Hill, which creates opportunities Marcus Semyon To slide the base on Tuesday. It’s the stealth option in 12-team leagues. Leody TaverasWith a plus velocity and a .927 OPS in May.

Big Soppers

Want to add a homer or two to your total this week? Consider releasing one of these players.

Eugene Suarez vs Eugene Suarez Ken Waldichuk (Wednesday), JP Sears (Thursday): Suarez has been disappointing overall this season (5 HR, .225 BA) but has shown plenty of power and a strong left-handed hitting ability throughout his career. Waldychuk and Sears are two of 14 pitchers who have allowed at least 10 homers this season.

Wilmer Flores @ Eric Lauer (Thursday) Flores has been better against left-handers this season, including ripping four homers on 63 plate appearances in those games. Lauer is one of the most homer-prone pitchers in baseball in 2023, allowing 13 long balls in 42.2 innings. Hitter-friendly Miller Park doesn’t do Lauer any favors in turning the odds around.
