CJ Abrams, Nationals OVER 8.5 Fantasy Points

CJ will get on base with at least a hit or a walk. I fully expect a stolen base and a run scored as well. I think he has a minimum of 9 fantasy points, but double digits are likely.

Bobby Witt Jr., Royals OVER 0.5 Runs

Witt Jr. came through for us late yesterday. As mentioned, he gets into scoring position by hitting an extra-base hit or by finding a way on and stealing a bag. The Royal hitters are much improved from a season ago, and they get him across home plate at least once. Witt Jr. has scored in five straight games and in eight of his last ten, making him an automatic play to score.

Marcus Semien OVER 6 Fantasy Points

The Royals turn to SP Daniel Lynch, who has been pummeled in the minors thus far this season. Semien is in a great spot; he should get at least five at-bats, and all he needs is an extra-base hit and a run.

James Paxton, OVER 4 Strikeouts

Paxton has only passed this number once this season, but he faces a Brave team with a lot of swing and miss. He should go at least five innings and get a strikeout in each.
