St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
Tyler O'Neill went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Cardinals to a 10-6 victory over the Reds. O'Neill set the tone early with a colossal two-run blast to center field -- his 17th round-tripper of the season -- off righty Sonny Gray in the opening frame. The 26-year-old burgeoning five-category fantasy superstar has put together a legitimate breakthrough campaign, slashing .274/.331/.526 with 42 runs scored, 17 homers, 40 RBI and eight stolen bases across 296 plate appearances this season.
Cleveland Indians DFS Spin
Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Sunday as Cleveland edged the Rays 3-2 at Progressive Field. Hernandez put Cleveland on the scoreboard with an impressive opposite-field shot versus southpaw Ryan Yarbrough in the opening frame. The 31-year-old second baseman has gone deep six times across 21 games since June 30. He's a decent source of over-the-fence power for fantasy managers in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
