Hey Fake Baseballers, welcome to yet another Friday edition of the Daily Fantasy Forecast. There are some big tourneys to enter tonight and even better, it’s the start of the weekend. What could be better?!? Now let’s get to it and take a glance at tonight’s forecast.

Pitchers

Stephen Strasburg – This is my guy tonight. I’m putting all my eggs in his basket. Wow, that sounds really weird. Ignore that. Anyway, he goes up against a Braves team that doesn’t hit RHP well at all. I know he doesn’t pitch nearly as well on the road but I think Turner Field is friendly enough as to where he’s still a great play.

Jered Weaver – Don’t wanna pay for Stras? Go for Weaver. I don’t think his start will blow you away, but I think he’ll have a nice quality start tonight.

Anibal Sanchez – When Sanchez is off, it’s ugly. But when he’s on, like in his start against Colorado on Sunday, the man is vicious on the mound. The Blue Jays matchup looks tough but with his price tag and momentum, I love this play.

Hitters

Buster Posey – Ooh, Posey against a LHP tonight. Posey’s got a .386 wOBA against LHP this year. That’s good folks.

Lucas Duda – I’m gonna go Duda tonight at first because he’s hitting in a hitter-friendly ballpark.

Jason Kipnis – Kipnis goes up against Esmil Rogers who historically struggles against lefty hitters in a park that very much favors lefty hitters. This matchup is even more lovely because Kipnis hits leadoff these days.

Adrian Beltre – Beltre should crush Brett Oberholtzer no problem tonight.

Hanley Ramirez – HanRam is hitting near .300 lifetime against Kyle Lohse. In hitter-friendly Miller Park, I think he improves that average.

Ender Inciarte – Inciarte gets Tyler Matzek and his 5.31 ERA tonight. They’re not playing in Coors but Chase Field is also friendly to hitters. What’s also friendly? Ender’s price tag.

Bryce Harper – After the walkoff homer, I think Bryce starts to feel himself a little bit. I think he’s good for a couple of base hits off of Ervin Santana tonight.

Denard Span – Span has hit .370 against Ervin Santana lifetime. We all know Span can pick up points in bunches as well.
