The purpose of this column is to highlight some players with upside and well-suited for tournaments. While the majority of the hitter picks will likely have power upside, that's not necessarily the case for all the listed options. Other contextual factors such as batting order, ballpark, opposing pitcher, price, speed, etc also come into play, and you'll see these items sprinkled into the write-ups below. Along with that, we'll be gauging the ownership levels, giving you some plausible pivots from the popular choices in a given game slate.

-Carlos Carrasco didn't look great against the White Sox last time prior to leaving after being hit in the face by a line drive, but that actually makes him more appealing to me as a GPP option tonight given the fact that he's likely to be lower owned than he should be. His price on DraftKings is incredibly cheap given his upside and the fact that you need two pitchers there. He has the ability to strike out 10+ batters any time out and the White Sox bats have been as inconsistent as any team so far this season. If he can avoid the big inning, he could turn in the best pitching line of the night.
