Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Rhys Hoskins went 3-for-5 with a home run and two doubles in Wednesday's win over the Mets. The solo blast came in the first inning off Mets starter David Peterson. It was not one of Hoskins' more majestic home runs, traveling just 362 feet off to the opposite field that barely cleared the wall. However, this makes up for a near-miss home run to dead center on Tuesday night. Hoskins is now 10-for-24 (.417) with four RBI and six runs scored this season and could be primed for a huge fantasy campaign in Philadelphia.
Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Ronald Acuña Jr went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a long two-run homer in Friday's win over the Phillies. He also singled in the eighth inning. You'll notice we said "long two-run homer" here, but that doesn't really do it justice. After Zack Wheeler kept the Braves off the board for the first four innings, Acuña launched a 456-feet bomb to straight-away center field in the fifth, setting the team's potent offense in motion. A night like this is a reminder of why he was the No. 1 overall pick in many fantasy leagues. Expect much more in the way of excellence.
