We have a 12 game slate on this beautiful hump day. Plenty of pitching options on the board, and some interesting spots for stacks. As of now, only the PHI @ ATL game has a threat of rain, but should be checked on before first pitch. So sit back, read up, and let's win some contests.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 6/07/2017. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options, and of course, value plays

Offensive Stacks

Tampa Bay Rays vs Mike Pelfrey

Pelfrey isn't a good pitcher. I know he has had some decent outings the past few weeks, but he is due for some regression, and it puts Tampa in the spot to capitalize on that. He hasn't pitched more than six innings in any game this year, and they are quick to pull him out if things get bad. The Rays bats aren't that expensive tonight, so you should be able to fit all that you want in there, along with a solid pitcher.

Minnesota Twins vs Yovani Gallardo

Gallardo is on the back half of his career, and is really struggling to put together good outings. He has given up 20 ER in his last four starts. Terrible numbers, and the type of thing you want to look at when targeting pitchers. He has a .406 wOBA vs right-handed hitters, so load up on the Twins righty bats, and get what should be a lowered owned stack.

 

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Dallas Keuchel - P, @ KAN ($10,900)

Keuchel is back from his short stint on the DL and he is still looking great. An early pick for AL CY Young, Dallas has four straight wins and has a staggering low WHIP of 0.77. Elite tier numbers to go along with only giving up 3 ER in his last four starts. If you are a cash game player, this is where you want to look. He has the consistency you need, and is one of the safest options on the board. He is up against the Royals who have an 18% strikeout rate vs LHP, which is one of the lower ones in the league, so not a ton of strikeout out potential. But the Royals are bad offensively, so this match up shouldn't be too much trouble for him.

Jake Odorizzi - P, vs CWS ($7,900)

Odorizzi is a nice mid range pitcher who is in a spot with some upside. He is up against the White Sox who have a 23% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitching. Odorizzi isn't a pitcher with a ton of strikeout stuff, but he has had six or more strikeouts three times this year. For his price, he doesn't need to have a huge game, just needs to limit the damage, and he will be worth it. Tropicana is a bit of a pitchers park, which goes nicely with Odorizzi's 1.00 WHIP.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Jett Bandy - C, vs SFG ($2,600)

Not sure how Bandy is priced this low tonight, but this is the time to roster him. He has unbelievable numbers vs left-handed pitching this season. He has a .613 wOBA and a .571 ISO, which are unreal stats. He is under $3K, and you are getting him at home in at hitters park. Play him.

Paul Goldschmidt - 1B, vs SDP ($4,500)

Goldy is one of the safest options when it comes to first base, and he always has the home run upside. Great for a cash game, or a stack since this game is in Arizona, which is a great hitters park. He has a .447 wOBA and a .303 ISO vs right-handed pitching.

Rougned Odor - 2B, vs NYM ($3,300)

Odor is a tournament only play, since he doesn't have the consistency you need for cash games. He has a bit of home run upside, but is best used in a stack with other Rangers, since they have one of the better offenses in the league. He has a .284 wOBA and a .196 ISO vs right-handed pitching.

Travis Shaw - 3B, vs SFG ($3,400)

Shaw is having himself a very nice season so far, and is showing he has a bright future. He is hitting the ball well vs both handedness of pitchers, and has a .325 wOBA and a .192 ISO vs LHP. At home in a hitters park, he is a fringe cash game option, and mainly a GPP play.

Tim Beckham - SS, vs CWS ($3,300)

Beckham is a bit of reverse splits hitter this year. He has a higher wOBA vs RHP compared to LHP, .324 vs .290 respectively. Certainly not a cash game play, but a Tampa stack is looking like a great option tonight, so he is best used there.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

George Springer - OF, @ KAN ($4,200)

Springer is one of the hottest hitters in baseball right now and he has a juicy match up tonight. He has a .506 wOBA and a .434 ISO vs left-handed pitching. Absolutely elite numbers, and is a great option for all formats. He is expensive, but the value and upside is there.

Mookie Betts - OF, vs NYY ($4,000)

Aslways nice to target players in a rivalry game, and in a hitters park, this is a good spot for Betts. He has a .337 wOBA and a .243 ISO vs left-handed pitching this season. He is up against Sabathia, who has been known to get blown up from time to time, and in what should be a high scoring game, he is a solid option.

Billy Hamilton - OF, vs STIL ($3,400)

Hamilton is one of the best base stealers in the league, he already has  28 SB in 53 games. He has a .326 OBP vs right-handed pitching, so if he gets on, he will run. That upside from stolen bases is great for tournaments, so he can be used as a one off.
