Cincinnati Reds DFS Spin

Jesse Winker went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer on Thursday, leading the Reds to a 4-2 win in the opener of a four-game series against the Cardinals. Winker singled in the opening frame before snapping a seven-game homerless streak, connecting on a hanging curveball from righty Adam Wainwright and launching a majestic two-run blast to right field in the second inning. The 27-year-old outfielder is just two round-tripper's shy of matching his previous career-high mark, established back in 2019. He also singled in the ninth inning to record his seventh three-hit performance in 47 games this season. He's been one of the premier hitters in baseball over the first nine weeks of the 2021 campaign, recording an extra-terrestrial .348/.408/.636 triple-slash line with 39 runs scored, 14 homers and 31 RBI across 206 plate appearances.

The 25-year-old burgeoning fantasy superstar is hitting .375 (12-for-32) with four homers and one steal in eight games since coming off the injured list last week.
