Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored, six RBI, and a walk in a 14-3 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday. Bellinger is officially back. He capped off an 11-run first inning for the Dodges with a 103.8 mile per hour grand slam off of Jake Woodford for his first home run of the season. He had already driven in two runs earlier in the frame with a base hit off of Carlos Martinez. The 25-year-old star has a lot more making up to do for fantasy managers as he has just 41 plate appearances this season after missing time with a leg fracture. Today's performance could be the beginning of a big final four months for Bellinger.
Atlanta Braves DFS Spin
Ozzie Albies went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a steal Thursday to lead the Braves past the Nationals 5-1. Three straight multihit games have raised Albies' average from .231 to .251. He also has three homers and 14 RBI in his last 10 games. Going without Marcell Ozuna and Travis d'Arnaud will cost the Braves in the runs department, but it might make Albies, Austin Riley and Dansby Swanson more valuable for fantasy purposes, now that they've been moved up in the lineup.
