DFS Picks June 1 – 3: Ian Desmond, Wilson Ramos
As noted on our sister site Gambling911.com, Ian Desmond of the Washington Nationals could prove to be a hot commodity the early part of this week, as least on Tuesday and Wednesday.
But one of the hottest daily fantasy prospects this week will be Washington’s Wilson Ramos, 9-for-13 against R.A. Dickey and .277 on the season thus far so the price will be right Monday night. Ramos hasn't had a starting streak longer than four games or shorter than three in the 2015 season.
Desmond, meanwhile, went 3-for-5 with two doubles in Wednesday's victory over the Cubs and has hit in nine of this last ten games. His batting average continues to climb. He’s priced at $3400.
He has gone 5-for-23 against Dickey. Sideline Desmond Monday night but consider him for both your Tuesday and Wednesday rosters
He has not faced Marco Estrada but his performance of late makes him an enticing play though a bit of a gamble.
On Wednesday, Desmond goes up against the Blue Jays Mark Buehrle, for whom he’s hit 2-for-6 against.
Denard Span is 12-for-33 against Buehrle with 5 RBIs and 2 homers. He’s hit in all but two of his last ten games.
