Starting Pitcher: Anthony DeSclafani @ Atlanta Braves ($8,100)

DeSclafani returned last Friday from an oblique injury in a start against the Athletics. In this game he pitched a solid six inning one-run performance. Now this Wednesday, DeSclafani will pitch against the inept Braves offense who have the lowest amount of runs scored this season. This matchup gets even better as the last time DeSclafani pitched against the Braves he did very well, giving up three runs over six innings in line for a 4-3 win.
Starting Pitcher: Sonny Gray @ Texas Rangers ($7,100):

Sonny Gray returned from a back injury two weeks ago and has bounced back tremendously with two straight quality starts. Gray will pitch against a Texas Rangers lineup Wednesday which may look bad because of how good the Rangers are this season (sixth in runs scored and eighth in batting average). But no need to worry as Rangers hitters have only hit a measly .207 against Gray in his career.
Catcher: J.T. Realmuto @ San Diego Padres ($4,000):

J.T. Realmuto has been on a superb hot streak scoring 41 fantasy points in 4 games making him a great start in daily fantasy. Not to mention his opponent Wednesday, the Padres, are starting a rookie pitcher Luis Perdomo who holds a dreadful ERA of 9.50 and WHIP of 2.28.
First Base: Joe Mauer @ Los Angeles Angels ($4,000):

Joe Mauer’s matchup is as good as it gets. Mauer will face off against Hector Santiago who gave up 5 runs in 1.1 innings his last start and 19 runs in his last four starts. This matchup gets even better as Mauer is 5 for 12 (.417) lifetime against Santiago.
Second Base: Joe Panik @ Milwaukee Brewers ($3,800):

The second baseman for the Giants has been on a roll as of late scoring 55 fantasy points in his last five games. Panik also has solid career numbers against Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson, hitting 4 for 7 (.571) lifetime against the Brewers ace.
Second Base: Whit Merrifield @ Cleveland Indians ($2,700)

Merrifield has a ridiculous 58 fantasy points in his his last three games and is 1 for 3 against Corey Kluber in his career. With his production and low price Merrifield is a must-start Wednesday.
Third Base: Justin Turner @ Arizona Diamondbacks ($3,400)

Turner is facing off against Patrick Corbin who he is 5 for 13 (.385) against. Also, Turner is almost as red hot as his hair with 6 RBIs in his last seven games. With a cheap price and great matchup I highly recommend Turner be in your Daily Fantasy lineup Wednesday
Third Base: Kris Bryant @ Washington Nationals ($3,900)

Even though Bryant is facing off against the stellar Stephan Strasburg, His low price of $3,900 makes him a steal. Bryant has been one of the best hitters in baseball this year and has been on a tear recently with 81 fantasy points in seven games.
Shortstop: Jean Segura @ Los Angeles Dodgers ($2,700)

Segura does have an arduous task Wednesday trying to hit off arguably the league’s best pitcher in Clayton Kershaw. But he has been on a hot streak having four multi-hit games in 5 days. Even though he is only .200 in his career against Kershaw, he is still on a torrid pace and can be picked at a very cheep price.
Outfield: Ichiro Suzuki @ San Diego Padres ($3,500)

On his chase for 3,000 hits, and only 23 hits away, Ichiro has been raking at the plate and will most likely continue to do so against the mediocre Luis Perdomo. Ichiro is hitting .350 on the year and Perdomo has a 9.50 ERA: it doesn’t get much better than this.
Outfield: Melky Cabrera @ Detroit Tigers ($3,600)

Melky is playing against Tiger’s Mike Pelfrey who has a 4.68 ERA. This is a great matchup as Melky is 4 for 14 (.308) against Pelfrey. And this matchup gets even better as the guy who drives Melky Cabrera in, Jose Abreu, is 4 for 11 (.364) against Pelfrey. And not to mention Melky has 11 hits and 6 RBIs in his last eight games.
Outfield: Matt Holliday @ Houston Astros ($3,800)

Matt Holliday is red hot his past three games with 6 hits, 5 RBIs, and two home runs. In addition to this Holliday is facing Collin McHugh who has been just as bad his past two games as Holliday has been good.
Outfield: Jason Heyward @ Washington Nationals ($3,400)

Heyward along with Holliday has been red hot his past three games with 7 hits and 4 RBIs. To go along with his red hot hitting, Heyward has owned opposing pitcher Stephen Strasburg throughout his career hitting .438 in 32 at bats against him.
