Houston Astros DFS SPIN

Yuli Gurriel drove in two runs while going 1-for-4 on Saturday in a win over the Rays. Gurriel gave the Astros a 3-0 lead with a two-run single in the first. That was all the offense that Jose Urquidy and Houston would need in a 3-1 victory. After a mediocre 2020 season, the first baseman has hit the ground running in 2021 with 18 RBI and a slash of .330/.436/.543. He's been a fantasy steal for those who drafted Gurriel in the late rounds this winter.

Rays activated LHP Rich Hill from the COVID-19 injured list. Hill ended up missing only one game due to vaccination side effects. The 41-year-old veteran southpaw is scheduled to take the ball for the Rays in Sunday's series finale against the Astros.
