The DFR match-winner is a guaranteed stud who might cost you an arm and a leg, but is going to score well on any given night.
Quniton de Kock SA ($6,700 Moneball) ($21,500 Draftstars)
If you’re playing Moneyball in particular, it’s hard to look past South African keeper Quinton de Cock. He is the highest priced player on the slate at Draftstars at $21,500 but in Moneyball, he sits below four other players with a handy price tag of just $6,700. While he has made just 101 runs through three innings so far in the tournament, has looked the South Africans most damaging batsman by a stretch and has looked like a big score is on the way.
Always finds himself in the action with the gloves has well, having taken two catches in the Proteas game against India including a one handed screamer to dismiss Virat Kohli. Has the ability to take any bowling attack in the world apart and should feast on West Indies quicks if they were as undisciplined as they were against Australia on Thursday night.
The night-watchmen will be a great point of difference in your team and plugging him somewhere in the middle order could be the difference between winning and losing.
Carlos Brathwaite ($6,000 Moneyball) ($13,770 Draftstars)
Brathwaite had an absolute monster game against the Australians on Thursday night, claiming three wickets at a good economy rate before making 16 runs to combine for a total score of 54.5 fantasy points. The paceman is way underpriced compared to some of the other all-rounders on offer this Monday night at $1,000 cheaper than Andre Russel at Moneyball.
Brathwaite has taken five wickets in his last three ODI matches against South Africa at an average of just over 28, which is a massive drop on his career bowling average of 42.14. Also plundered 33* with the bat in a match-winning performance in his last game against the Proteas.
Fine Leg to Fine Leg
Anyone who’s played a game of grade cricket before knows that only the duds go from fine leg to fine leg. Avoid these guys like the plague.
Shimron Hetmyer ($6,600 Moneyball) ($10,190 Draftstars)
There no assurances that Hertmyer will even be playing this Monday night after two poor performances with the bat in the West Indies opening games. Hertmyer scored just 7 in their opening game against Pakistan before making 21 against Australia on Thursday night. Darren Bravo is waiting patiently in the wings for the West Indies and could return at the expense of Hertmyer this game.
If Hertmyer does get the selection nod, he’ll be facing a side in the Proteas who he has never played against and arguably one of the best fast bowling attacks in the world in Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. Stay away from Hertmyer.
