Chicago Cubs DFS Spin
Willson Contreras went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI on Tuesday in a rout of the Indians. Contreras drove in his first run with a single in the sixth, and then walloped a solo shot off Trevor Stephan to extend the Cubs' lead to 7-1. The veteran backstop has driven in 28 runs thus far, and the homer is the 12th of the campaign. The power has been nice, but the .232 average is a bit of a disappointment, and unfortunately not far off from the .243 mark he had in the truncated 2020 season.
