Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI on Friday evening, leading the Dodgers to a 10-5 comeback victory over the Nationals. Betts ignited the Dodgers' surreal nine-run explosion in the seventh inning by smacking a two-run single to left field off righty reliever Austin Voth. He also added a leadoff double against Nats ace Max Scherzer back in the opening frame to record his 19th multi-hit effort in 70 games this season. The 28-year-old fantasy superstar owns a .249/.363/.461 triple-slash line with 49 runs scored, 10 homers, 31 RBI and seven stolen bases across 322 plate appearances.

Kyle Schwarber will undergo an MRI on his injured right hamstring on Saturday. Schwarber suffered the injury while running the bases during Friday's contest against the Dodgers. Now all the Nationals -- and Schwarber's fantasy managers can do -- is wait and hope that it's not too serious. Look for the Nats to provide an update on Saturday afternoon after getting the MRI results.
