Fantasy Baseball Scouting Report 8.26.20


Welcome back to the Scouting Report for Wednesday.  A lot of action today, and a lot of guys that won't cost you a ton over on FanDuel/DraftKings that have some favorable matchups.  Use them to fill out your roster after you pick up some high priced guys.  Check out who's hot and who's not and the MLB Drive-Thru for a look at the day and a closer look at the very enticing matchups for the Dodgers, Rockies, Miguel Cabrera and Ketel Marte.  Find me on Twitter @JimRileyLive to more baseball talk throughout the day!
