Happy Friday! The Atlanta Braves are rolling right now and, understandably, the great focus of this website is on that particular story line right now. However, the rest of Major League Baseball continues to churn, and that includes daily fantasy.

SB Nation and FanDuel continue to partner on daily fantasy baseball, and we will bring you regularly scheduled lineup recommendations throughout the 2016 season. On this fine evening, we will try to provide you with the ammunition necessary to win some jelly beans.

Editor's Note: New players win cash in their first league or get their entry fee refunded! Offered in partnership with FanDuel.

Let’s get it.

Note: This lineup would be used in today's 7:05 pm ET contest.

P - Cole Hamels ($9,500)

C - Russell Martin ($3,000)

1B - Adam Lind ($2,400)

2B - Joe Panik ($3,000)

3B - Jake Lamb ($2,900)

SS - Francisco Lindor ($3,200)

OF - Mike Trout ($4,500)

OF - Christian Yelich ($3,500)

OF - Seth Smith ($3,000)

Hamels hasn’t been great lately, but I love the match-up in Oakland and it is enough to inspire me to pay top dollar for the left-hander. In addition, there isn’t that one guy that I love as a cheaper option, and that helps to swing the pendulum in the direction of safety at the pitcher spot.

As far as the lineup is concerned, I’m spending big on Trout and that’s never a bad thing. Elsewhere, the plan is to take advantage of platoon-friendly spots. Lind and Smith have a juicy match-up against Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson, while Lamb can tee off against Yovani Gallardo. Throw in Christian Yelich in a fade of Matt Wisler against lefties (sorry, Matt) and we’ll be just fine.

Good luck, everyone.
