Series Fantasy Value Picks:

P Clayton Kershaw – Los Angeles Dodgers

Kershaw let the first game slide to the Mets. It`s doubtful he will repeat this failure a second time around, if he gets to pitch in this series again.

P Steven Matz – New York Mets

Matz has been impressive in his first year in the big league. The sensational rookie could be the game changer in the fourth game of the series.

1B Adrian Gonzalez – Los Angeles Dodgers

Gonzalez is a home run threat every time he shows up at the plate.

SS Wilmer Flores – New York Mets

Flores made his case this year to earn the Mets starting shortstop gig.

OF Michael Conforto – New York Mets

Conforto made his MLB debut against the Los Angeles and even had a 4-for-4 in a 15-2 win over the Dodgers back on July 25th. The rookie has potential to be a Dodger nightmare.
