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.

Cleveland Indians DFS Spin

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.

On the other side, the Indians have won four of their last five interleague home games versus a right-handed starter and are 4-1 in their last five interleague home games overall.
