Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Ronald Acuña Jr. homered and drove in two runs in a loss on Thursday to the Mets. Acuña got the Braves back into the game with a two-run homer off Carlos Carrasco. It’s the ninth homer of the season for the outfielder, who has not shown the power stroke since returning from his torn ACL. There’s lots of reason to believe he can start putting the ball over the fence more often to end 2022.
New York Mets DFS SPIN
Pete Alonso homered and drove in three runs Thursday in a win over the Braves. It’s the 29th homer of the season for Alonso. His two-run shot made it 4-0 Mets in the fourth, and he also singled in a run in the first. The MVP candidate has been scorching hot as of late, and his OPS is up to .910 on the season to go along with the aforementioned homers and 91 RBI.
