FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Ian Happ sitting for Cubs against Cardinals

Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ is not in the starting lineup for Friday afternoon's series opener against right-hander Johan Oviedo and the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Happ is 2-for-25 in June and he will take a seat for the second time in the past three games. Joc Pederson, Kris Bryant, and Jason Heyward will start across the Cubs' outfield in Friday's matinee.

numberFire’s models project Pederson for 12.1 FanDuel points and he has a $2,600 salary on Friday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an implied total of 4.8 runs on Friday. Oviedo has the fifth-lowest strikeout percentage (18.2) and worst walk percentage (15.5) among Friday's listed starters.
