Tampa Bay Rays DFS SPIN

Ji-Man Choi went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk against the Red Sox on Wednesday. It's been a rather turbulent year for Choi, and it's easy to imagine the Rays letting him go rather than paying him $4 million-$5 million in arbitration. Still, he's done enough lately to justify a lineup spot against righties in the postseason. He ends up at .233/.341/.388 with 11 homers in 419 plate appearances.

Cleveland Guardians DFS SPIN

José Ramírez went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI against the Royals on Wednesday. Ramirez finishes with 29 homers and 126 doubles, making him the first player to drive in at least 120 runs and hit fewer than 30 homers since Justin Morneau did so in 2008. He's third in the majors in RBI and tied for second with 44 doubles. He's also tops in the league with 20 intentional walks, which would likely surprise some Aaron Judge gans.
