Conner Uselton is an 18 year old, 6’3 185 lbs, outfielder from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He is going into his senior year at Southmoore High School. Uselton is one of the top high school prospects for the upcoming 2017 MLB Draft. You can find my scouting report for this potential 5-tool outfielder below:
P- Jose Quintana (vs. Minnesota Twins): $10,700. There is only four games on Thursday, so the pitching match-ups are very limited. With that said, Quintana is by far the best option available. He pitched great in his starts in August, so hopefully he will continue his success. He has now thrown eight straight quality starts. In 191 career at bats against Quintana, the Twins’ offense is batting .246, with a .308 OBP, and a .377 slugging percentage.
P- Jacob deGrom (vs. Miami Marlins): $9,000. deGrom has really struggled recently, but the Mets gave him a few extra days of rest to work on his mechanics. Considering there are so few options to choose from on Thursday, deGrom’s price and upside are really attractive. In 131 career at bats against deGrom, the Marlins’ offense is batting .282, with a .294 OBP, and a .345 slugging percentage.
P – Stephen Strasburg (vs. Arizona Diamondbacks): $12,900. With such a small slate today, Strasburg is easily the best option at pitcher. He is averaging 10.93 strikeouts per nine innings this year, which is huge for daily fantasy. The Diamondbacks offense has struggled over the past seven days, so hopefully Strasburg can take advantage.
P – CC Sabathia (vs. New York Mets): $7,600. In 116 career at bats against Sabathia, the New York Mets are only batting .216, with a .248 OBP, and 35 strikeouts. In his last outing, he was pretty impressive against a very tough Astros lineup, so the Mets should be a cake walk.
P – Michael Fulmer (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $10,900. Fulmer has been dominant this season. In 63.2 innings pitched, he owns a 7-2 record, 2.54 ERA, 50 hits against, 60 strikeouts, and 24 walks. The Rays offense has struggled quite a bit in 2016, so Fulmer should be able to take care of business. Prior to Fulmer’s last start, he threw 33.1 consecutive scoreless innings.
P – Tanner Roark (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $9,800. Roark struggled his last time out against the Reds, but he has been spectacular for the rest of the 2016 season. In 16 starts, he owns a 7-5 record, with a 2.96 ERA, 90 hits against, 89 strikeouts, and 32 walks in 100.1 innings pitched. The Reds offense has been miserable over the past seven games, which is a great sign for Roark.
