Underdog Fantasy Daily Pick’Em Entry – August 29
Austin Riley – Higher than 2.0 Total Bases
Riley is feasting on that Colorado air, and he always has. He collected his fourth and fifth hits in the last five game span – two of those in that run have been home runs. On his career, he’s 13-for-35 at Coors Field, with eight of those hits going for extra bases. All of that is good for a .800 slugging percentage at the park. I’ll take that he nabs at least a double here as a result.
Paul Goldschmidt – Higher than 8.0 Fantasy Points
Paul Goldschmidt sees the ball quite well out of Padres’ starter Seth Lugo’s hands. In just nine at-bats against the hurler, he has six hits, and two of those are home runs. Given how bad the San Diego bullpen has been, I don’t expect anyone else to be much more effective against him either.
Goldschmidt has also been hot lately, with seven hits in his last six games. Three of those have been for extra bases, and he’s been trending up with the walks as well lately.
Gavin Williams – Lower than 16.5 Outs Recorded
I do really like the promise of Gavin Williams, but things just don’t line up for this projection to hit. For one, the Twins are finally hitting the ball. They have 5.6 runs a game over their last five, which is a huge increase from the year totals. Also, Williams is still walking a lot of guys early in his career.
He’s walked nearly two a game for the month of August, and that’s down from July. All this has led to higher pitch counts and shorter outings. In fact, he has only gone over this number once in his last seven starts.
