FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (10/7/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We're back with another two game slate. One of the games is in Colorado, while the other is in Atlanta's hitter friendly stadium. It should be a great day for hitters, although there is one pitcher that stands out above the rest tonight, as well.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 10/7/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me up on Twitter @BalesSJustin.

FanDuel DFS Pitcher

Walker Buehler - P, at ATL ($9,300)

Buehler has been throwing at an extremely high level recently, posting a 3-1 record with a 1.43 ERA over his last 10 starts. He has recorded a quality start in eight of those games, while averaging 40.8 fantasy points per game over all 10 of them. Tonight, he's a -177 favorite in a game set at 8 runs, giving his opponents an implied run total of only 3.4 runs.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Erik Kratz - C/1B, at COL ($2,100)

Kratz is a bit too cheap for the position he's in tonight. He's only hitting .200 over his last 10 games, but he has flashed power on the season. He'll be playing in Coors tonight, and there are simply limited options on this slate. He's near the minimum price, and will allow you to get the more expensive bats in other parts of your lineup. He's a solid salary relief option.

Travis Shaw - 2B, at COL ($4,000)

Shaw has been playing well recently, as he's hitting .250 with two home runs, five RBIs, and three steals over his last 10 games. He gets a tough matchup against German Marquez, but he owns 0.103 wOBA and 0.193 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching. Shaw does come with some risk, but it's difficult to avoid him in Coors on this slate.

Justin Turner - 3B, at ATL ($3,900)

Turner is an option that can be considered against any left-handed pitcher. He's hitting .336 with a .580 slugging percentage, .244 ISO, and 1.028 OPS against lefties in a "down year" against them. Tonight, he gets a matchup against Sean Newcomb in a hitter friendly stadium. Turner is a consistent option, who can be used in all leagues.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Christian Yelich - OF, at COL ($4,700)

FanDuel loosened their pricing up a bit - likely because it's only a two game slate - but this is still surprising. Over his last 10 games, Yelich is hitting .448 with a 1.172 slugging percentage and a 1.825 OPS. He owns eight extra-base hits (six home runs), 19 RBIs, and three steals over that span. Furthermore, in those 10 games, Yelich is averaging 28.6 fantasy points per game.

Matt Holliday - OF, vs MIL ($2,700)

Holliday is a cheap way to get part of Coors tonight. He has been struggling recently, but he is known to come with power and gets a great matchup against Wade Miley tonight. He has been a more consistent option against left-handed pitching, and he's expected to hit fifth in the Colorado offense tonight.
