Boston Red Sox DFS Spin

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with two doubles on Saturday during the Red Sox victory over the Marlins. The 33-year-old now has 13 doubles this season to go with 12 home runs in what has been an amazing bounce-back campaign. Martinez is now batting .328/.399/.587 with 39 RBI and 39 runs scored and was likely one of, if not the very best values during fantasy drafts this year.

Houston Astros DFS Spin

Kyle Tucker clobbered a three-run homer on Sunday as the Astros avoided a potential three-game sweep at the hands of the Padres with a 7-4 win in the series finale. Tucker spearheaded the Astros' relentless offensive onslaught against lefty Blake Snell, crushing a tone-setting, three-run homer to left field in the opening frame. It was his 11th round-tripper of the season. The 24-year-old outfielder has been underwhelming from a batting average standpoint, but he remains among the most potent power and speed combo contributors in the entire fantasy landscape. He's hitting .230/.303/.465 with 34 runs scored, 11 homers, 31 RBI and five steals in 212 plate appearances.
