Ross Stripling ($6,600)
The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to use Ross Stripling where he thrives the most in the postseason, and that’s the bullpen. Stripling has been absolutely dominant in the long relief role, posting a 0.90 ERA and 1.42 FIP over five outings in September.
The righty has a terrific 9:0 K:BB ratio over 10 innings in the month. Stripling’s 50.0 percent ground ball rate over that span is particularly impressive as well. He faces a San Diego Padres team that has scored just 16 runs over their last eight contests.
With the Dodgers planning on keeping Stripling in the long relief role, expect them to use him as the second arm of the game. This benefits Stripling’s opportunity for a win given that the opener before him won’t qualify for a win. He’s affordable and consistent.
A.J. Pollock ($4,200)
A.J. Pollock has started to show consistency for the Los Angeles Dodgers, as he has put together a solid 10-game hitting streak. The outfielder is batting a robust .358 over the hit streak, including two long-balls, eight RBI, and five runs scored.
The Dodgers offense looks much better as a whole of late, producing a whopping 41 runs over their last six games. This gives Pollock more opportunity for fantasy points, and his reasonable price tag makes for a nice play.
The Oakland A’s will face a struggling Andrew Heaney while visiting the Los Angeles Angels. Oakland owns the third-best AB:HR ratio against lefties in the AL this season, and they’ve produced 61 runs over their last 10 games.
Heaney has been a bust in September, compiling a bloated 9.31 ERA and 6.63 FIP over four starts. The southpaw has allowed seven round-trippers over the four outings (19 1/3 innings) and opposing bats have a 32.2 percent line drive rate and 46.7 percent hard hit rat against him. With the most expensive Oakland bat coming in at $4,900 on DraftKings (Marcus Semien), the A’s are a solid stack option that could fly under the radar. Matt Chapman ($4,000) in particular has crushed left-handed pitching this season.
