What an odd slate. With strikeouts continuing at a record pace, youd think thered be more lower-priced, high-upside hurlers on a full docket, but theyre few and far between. One way to attack this is throw caution to the wind and click in those facing an offense that fans a lot, regardless of the pitchers tendencies. Another is to play it safe, even in GPP tournaments, and look to differentiate with hitters. Whichever course you choose, heres what you need to get it done.PitchingEliteZack Greinkes uneven season continues since coming off the disabled list. His first post-break start was solid against the New York Mets, but he was blasted by the Boston Red Sox last time out. Friday lines up as another strong effort with the Arizona Diamondbacks continuing a series in Petco Park with the San Diego Padres. Even with last weeks shellacking at Fenway Park, Greinke has had much better success on the road, fanning 57 with only eight walks in 56 1/3 innings out of the desert. This meshes well with the Friars 25 percent whiff rate versus righties. Greinke sets up well for all forms of DFS play.After throwing at least six innings in his first 17 starts, Johnny Cueto has left after five in three of his last six outings. His ERA over that span is 4.84, with a high 1.42 WHIP. Chances are good that its nothing to worry about, just the normal peaks and valleys of the arduous season, but for a guy whose calling card is consistency, its worth noting. The veteran righty is in a great spot to regain momentum as the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants meet in the second game of a four-game set in AT&T Park. The visitors tote the second worst weighted on base average versus righties for the past month. Despite his recent woes, Cueto is a fine cash option.SolidFridays are always popular for tournaments. Especially with the paucity of lesser-priced options, one of the more popular candidates looks to be Cole Hamels with the Texas Rangers opening a weekend set in Tropicana Field with the Tampa Bay Rays. Hamels enjoys a nice park upgrade, facing a club that whiffs at an elevated 26 percent clip against southpaws.Gerrit Cole?joins Cueto as a normally reliable hurler in a bit of a tailspin. The Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander has given up nine earned runs over his last two starts, encompassing only 10 innings. Cole has the luxury of working on pitcher-friendly PNC Park against a Miami Marlins club still without Justin Bour to go along with recently losing Giancarlo Stanton for the duration of the season. While not weak, navigating the Marlins lineup for righties isnt that daunting as adding Cole to the list of candidates for DFS cash grinders.Sorry to disappoint those looking for that elusive tournament anchor but as mentioned, this slate really tilts to cash games. Tanner Roark is another example with the Washington Nationals continuing a set with the Atlanta Braves in Turner Field. Roarks strikeout rate is pedestrian and the Braves dont fan much. However, they also dont score much giving Roark the high cash game floor.Technically, Wade LeBlancs projected game score of 52 lands him in the streaming tier, but well jump him up to highlight his GPP potential. The veteran southpaw takes the hill in Safeco Field for an interleague affair with the strikeout-prone Milwaukee Brewers. LeBlanc isnt especially dominant, sporting a 6.8 K/9, but the visitors carry a bloated 24 percent strikeout pace into the Pacific Northwest. Normally, the chance of securing the win is less of a consideration relative to whiffs and innings. However, on a night where punchouts will be down, the victory is more important. The Seattle Mariners should be favorites facing Wily Peralta.StreamersA hearty 18 streaming options remain but like the solid tier, theres a dearth of GPP picks. There are, however, a pair of veterans here with high ESPN ownership that would normally exclude them from comment but since they both check in as GPP options, theyll be discussed. If someone you want to learn more about is indeed excluded, please let me know in the comments or via Twitter to @ToddZola and Ill be happy to share my thoughts.Despite sporting a career poorest ERA and second worst WHIP, Adam Wainwrights track record has him owned in 88 percent of ESPN leagues. Friday lines up as a rare good spot as the St. Louis Cardinals veteran takes the hill in Citizens Bank Park against a Philadelphia Phillies club with an above average strikeout rate versus right-handers. This gives you the chance to make up for some of the damage Wainwrights done in seasonal leagues by deploying him in DFS tournaments.It might seem strange for a Cy Young award candidate to register a projected game score of 49 but keep in mind Rick Porcellos basal skills arent dominating and hes saddled with taming a powerful Detroit Tigers squad in Comerica Park. On the other hand, theres some swing and miss in the Motown lineup putting the Boston Red Sox righty in play for tournament action.Now lets focus on some spot-starters for the head-to-head enthusiasts. Tom Koehler has been a savior with all the injuries to the Miami Marlins rotation. Over his last five games, spanning 33 stanzas, the righty has logged a tidy 1.36 ERA and even tidier 0.76 WHIP, fanning a respectable 25 along the way. The Marlins visit the Steel City to take on Pittsburgh Pirates club thats scuffling with a low .307 wOBA against right-handers for the past month. Koehler is owned in only 39 percent of ESPN leagues despite his recent stellar stretch. There isnt ample strikeout potential for GPP action, but hes certainly in play as a second starter for cash play.At the beginning of the season, if someone said the Los Angeles Dodgers will be thrilled that Bud Norris is coming off the disabled list to boost their rotation, youd have asked for a urine sample. But thats the case as the injury-riddled staff welcomes the journeyman right-handers back for a tilt against the Cincinnati Reds in the Great American Ballpark. Theres some risk here as the hosts have hit righties well the last month but on a slate without many options, Norris is viable.Just as you think Trevor Bauer has taken the next step, he tosses a few stinkers, making you think the hot stretch was a fluke. Then he goes on another hot streak. Just 25 years old, this isnt uncommon for a still-young, high pedigree arm. Bauers 49 percent ESPN ownership is barely under the 50 percent threshold we use as the cutoff to discuss streamers, but hed get some bandwidth regardless with the Toronto Blue Jays visiting Progressive Field. The inconsistent Cleveland Indians righty profiles as the prototypical high-risk, higher-reward option facing the powerful, but strikeout-prone Blue Jays.The slates biggest dart throw is Jarred Cosart, taking the Petco Park hill for the San Diego Padres to square off with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cosart doesnt miss many bats, but the Snakes struggle with contact against righties. The park downgrade isnt as big as you might think for the D-backs sticks, but its still there. This could easily backfire, but if youre a riverboat gambler, Cosart should have very low ownership on a night he has latent upside.AvoidConventionally, a game score of 45 means automatically avoid. Thats Kendall Gravemans projection but lets make an exception and put him in play if youre trolling for wins as the Oakland Athletics should be able to offer some run support with James Shields taking the hill in U.S. Cellular Field.Brent Suter has been summoned by the Milwaukee Brewers for Fridays contest in Safeco Field against the Seattle Mariners. The 26-year old southpaw has been toiling at Triple-A Colorado Springs, sporting a respectable 3.50 ERA in a great hitting environment. His calling card is control and keeping the ball down, as he doesnt walk many but doesnt miss many bats either. Maybe if he had more strikeout potential hed be an option due to the unfamiliarity factor, but theres not enough upside to take the chance as is.With Steven Matz feeling some soreness in his shoulder, Seth Lugo will grab a spot-start after spending the second half of the season as the long reliever for the New York Mets. His numbers in that role have been good, buoyed by only 10 hits in 17 frames. As a starter, hes likely to be exposed as suggested by a 6.50 ERA at Triple-A Las Vegas. Granted, this is minor league equivalent to pitching in Coors Field, but only 62 whiffs in 73 1/3 innings doesnt portend well, especially against the deep lineup the San Francisco Giants will send up in AT&T Park.The St. Louis Cardinals might be missing a couple of key right-handed bats, but theyre still plenty dangerous when facing a middling southpaw like Adam Morgan.Tim Adleman was out for over half the season because of an oblique injury. After a short visit to the minors after coming off the disabled list, the Cincinnati Reds have summoned the 28-year-old right-hander for a home start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The visitors are one of the better clubs against right-handers, sending Adleman to the fantasy bench.HittingThey havent all been clicking at the same time much this season but when they do, the left-handed contingent of the Seattle Mariners is extremely dangerous. Historically, Peralta is both wild and homer-prone, which isnt a good combination. Nori Aoki and Seth Smith lead things off with Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager looking to drive them home. Adam Lind is in the mix for tournament action.The Cardinals have to be creative with Matt Holliday and Aledmys Diaz on the sidelines. The last time the Redbirds faced a southpaw,?Tommy Pham?and?Stephen Piscotty?were at the top of the order. Jedd Gyorko and?Randal Grichuk?also enjoy the platoon bump over Adam Morgan. Contrarian plays include Matt Carpenter and Brandon Moss as neither are overmatched left-on-left and both probably will see some lesser bullpen arms with the platoon edge later in the game.Injuries and trades have lessened the Athletics attack with a righty on the hill.?Stephen Vogt, Yonder Alonso and Max Muncy will be in play. However, since the righty in question is Shields, dont sleep on Danny Valencia and Khris Davis as theyre threats, especially in homer-friendly U.S. Cellular Field.Even though Josh Reddick hasnt taken to Dodger Blue yet, the Los Angeles lineup has become potent versus righties, putting the returning Adleman in a tough spot. Chase Utley and Corey Seager?make up a dangerous combo, followed by Reddick,?Adrian Gonzalez?and switch-hitter Yasmani Grandal, who has been among the leaders in exit velocity for a couple of months, spearheading his turnaround. Joc Pederson, as usual, is a GPP option.Most likely to hit a homer: Khris DavisDavis trails only Edwin Encarnacion with regard to homers to homers over the past calendar year and with 24 of his 30 dingers coming off righties in 2016, hes in a great spot to go deep against Shields.Most likely to steal a bag: Jacoby Ellsbury Ellsbury doesnt have the wheels he did in his salad days, but at 32 years of age, he still has 17 bags in 25 tries. With Jered Weaver on the hill, Ellsbury has a strong chance to nudge closer to his fourth straight 20-steal campaign, which would be the seventh of his career. Evgenii Dadonov Jersey .

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- For No. 15 Purdue, not only is the Friday game against McNeese State the regular-season opener (7 p.m. ET, ESPN3), it also is the Boilermakers dress rehearsal for a Monday night matchup with the reigning national champions, No. 4 Villanova.Purdue, which finished 26-9, 12-6 in the Big Ten Conference last season, is 10-1 in season openers for 12th-year head coach Matt Painter and appears to be on a good path to be ready for title-winning Wildcats.The Boilermakers were 4-0 during an August exhibition tour of Spain, then defeated Southern Indiana in a Nov. 1 exhibition game in Mackey Arena and scrimmaged West Virginia last Sunday in Columbus, Ohio.Purdue will face a McNeese State team that returns its top three scorers from a 9-20 team that is picked to finish ninth in the Southland Conference. Painter likes the fact the Cowboys feature full-court pressure defense -- an element that bothered the Boilermakers last season.In two 2015-16 losses to Iowa and in a double-overtime NCAA Tournament defeat to a Arkansas-Little Rock, full-court pressure cost Purdue victories.Spike Albrecht, a fifth-year graduate transfer guard from Michigan, and freshman guard Carsen Edwards are eager to play their first regular-season games as Boilermakers.Albrecht likes the way Purdue is leading up to playing Villanova.A huge part, too, with our West Virginia scrimmage this past Sunday, is seeing teams that are a good caliber, Albrecht said. McNeese State is a good team that is going to put defensive pressure on us, which should prepare us and get uss ready for Villanova.ddddddddddddBut right now, were just focusing on McNeese State.Carsen Edwards -- no relation to Purdues leading returning scorer, junior forward Vince Edwards -- is glad the Wildcats are not the opponent in the season opener. Vince Edwards averaged 11.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game last season.Im absolutely glad we have a game before playing Villanova, but still, playing them the second game of the season is very early, Carsen Edwards said. Having McNeese State first is a good experience, just to kind of get your feet wet.We played in Spain in August, we had an exhibition game and then scrimmaged West Virginia before McNeese State, so thats the best way to prepare for Villanova.McNeese State coach Dave Simmons, 136-172 in his 11th season with the Cowboys, has guards Jamaya Burr (15.4 points a game last season), Jarren Greenwood (10.8) and James Harvey (10.7), who combined for 136 made 3-pointers last season.However, the Cowboys ranked last in the Southland Conference in field goal percentage (.411) and in rebounding defense.Were a very talented group, Simmons said. We have length. I think our guard play will be very good, and even though well be young, weve got guys that really shoot the basketball. Thats going to be our strength.The style of play, with the people we have, we want to be as high-octane, up-tempo as we can. We want to start that from the defensive end with full-court pressure.
