Cincinnati Reds DFS SPIN
Jesse Winker went 2-for-3 with a run scored on Sunday as the Reds completed a four-game sweep of the Pirates with a 3-2 victory in the series finale at Great American Ball Park. Winker picked up right where he left off after a monster three-hit, six RBI effort on Friday evening, with two additional hits in the series finale. The Reds outscored the Pirates 37 to 14 over the four-game series. They've gone 13-9 since the All-Star break and are within two games of the Padres for the final NL Wild Card playoff spot. The 27-year-old burgeoning fantasy superstar has been on a tear since the Midsummer Classic, hitting .341 (30-for-88) with four homers and 17 RBI across 22 games since the All-Star break.

José Ramírez went 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases on Sunday as Cleveland came back to defeat the Tigers. Ramírez tallied two hits and also recorded his third multi-steal effort of the 2021 campaign. He's on pace to record a potential 30-homer, 20-steal season, which puts him in rarified air for a fantasy contributor in the current speed-devoid landscape. The 28-year-old five-category fantasy stalwart owns a robust .254/.339/.522 triple-slash line with 71 runs scored, 24 homers, 65 RBI and 13 steals across 413 plate appearances.
