Atlanta Braves DFS Notes
Joc Pederson delivered a pinch-hit homer for the Braves' only run in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday. As per usual lately, Pederson was on the bench in favor of Eddie Rosario and Jorge Soler against a righty. Perhaps he earned himself a start in Game 2 with the blast off Adrian Houser.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS Notes
Rowdy Tellez hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning Friday to lead the Brewers to a 2-1 win over the Braves in Game 1 of the NLDS. With Corbin Burnes having pitched six shutout innings, it was still a scoreless game until Tellez ended Charlie Morton's night with a no-doubter to right-center. The homer was his eighth in 57 games since he arrived in Milwaukee in a trade with the Blue Jays. Game 2 of the NLDS will be played Saturday. Max Fried and Brandon Woodruff are due to start.
