FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Jeff Mathis behind Rangers' plate Thursday

Texas Rangers catcher Jeff Mathis is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against right-hander Cristian Javier and the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Mathis will replace Sam Huff at catcher and bat ninth. Huff doubled twice Wednesday in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He's gone 7-for-24 with a homer and 3 double-baggers since being called up.

numberFire's models expect Mathis to score 5.2 FanDuel points on Thursday with a salary of $2,000. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers currently have an implied total of 3.8 runs.
