Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN
Christian Yelich went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk on Thursday versus the Reds. The former MVP has been through a difficult run since the beginning of the 2020 season dealing with injuries and poor performance but has been picking it up in August. Yelich is batting .328/.365/.517 over the last 15 games while batting .375 with two home runs over the past seven contests. Fantasy managers are hoping the star outfielder can end the season on a hot streak, and it is very possible that is what we are going to see.
Minnesota Twins DFS Spin
Willians Astudillo hit a two-run homer off Chris Sale and pitched a scoreless innings against the Red Sox on Thursday. Astudillo's homer was his seventh in 178 plate appearances this season. His ability to avoid the strikeout hasn't led to particularly good batting averages of late and he's not a good enough defender to earn more playing time with his glove, so 26th man is probably his role at this point. He does have a 2.25 ERA, though.
