TX’s Mid-Tier Pitching:

  • Aaron Nola – He sure let us down against the Pirates in his last outing, but I think we can go back to him tonight against the Royals. He’s a heavy home favorite, where he averages 28% more fantasy points. Nola averages 55 FPPG when he’s a favorite and 44 FPPG at home over his last six games.

TX’s Door #3 Pitcher:

  • Adam Wainwright – Home favorite taking on the Rockies. The Rockies have a 27% K-rate to righties. The Rockies have a .240 batting average in 29 bats. Wainwright has historically dominated the Rockies, so this could be interesting.
