FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Eduardo Rodriguez – P, BOS vs BAL ($8,300)

Rodriguez has had a disastrous start to the season and has already been dismissed in the mind of many fantasy owners. This makes him a great contrarian play if he is able to bounce back against the Orioles. Baltimore is among the weakest lineups in the American League, so this is a perfect matchup for Rodriguez to regain his footing. He had a 26.4% strikeout rate in 2018 and will be a nice play if he can perform at that same level.

Drew Pomeranz – P, SF vs COL ($6,500)

The Rockies are another lineup that's worth targeting tonight, as they have been unable to hit left-handed pitching this year with a .270 wOBA against southpaws. Pomeranz isn't a great pitcher, but he has the advantage of pitching in Oracle Park, which is one of the most pitcher-friendly environments in the league. He is among the cheapest starting pitcher options, so Pomeranz allows you to load up your lineup with elite hitters. All he needs is a decent start to provide value at this price.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Luke Voit – 1B, NYY vs CWS ($4,100)

Voit is in an outstanding spot batting third for the Yankees where he can rack up runs and RBI. He's in an extreme hitter's park in Yankee Stadium and faces a weak opposing pitcher in Lucas Giolito, who has a 5.73 ERA in two starts. This is a perfect buying opportunity for Voit.

Rougned Odor – 2B, TEX vs OAK ($2,800)

Odor's power upside makes him an attractive GPP play, as he's capable of a big game on any given night. His 8.5% walk-rate is promising, as it looks like he's carried over his improved plate discipline from last season. Odor will be batting second for the Rangers in a good matchup against Mike Fiers, who's got a 5.94 ERA. It also helps that Odor is dirt cheap.

Jose Ramirez – 3B, CLE at KC ($3,200)

Ramirez is off to an awful start, but a bad two weeks is nothing to be worried about. He's still an elite fantasy commodity, and you can get him for a massive discount tonight. Expect him to get back on track.

Xander Bogaerts – SS, BOS vs BAL ($3,800)

Bogaerts and the Red Sox are primed for a strong performance against David Hess, who probably wouldn't be in a major league rotation if it weren't for the desperate Orioles rotation. Bogaerts should see plenty of RBI chances batting fifth in Fenway Park, an extreme hitter's park.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Juan Soto – OF, WAS ($4,200)

Soto has started the season well with an .888 OPS and a 132 wRC+. He's a player to target in cash games, as he's got a very high floor. A .400 OBP makes him a safe investment, as he's constantly getting on base.

Austin Meadows – OF, TB at TOR ($3,700)

Meadows just won't stop hitting - he's homered in back-to-back games and has posted a .341/.420/.659 line thus far. He will get lots of opportunities to produce as the Rays leadoff hitter and has the ability to steal when he's on base. It's surprising that his price hasn't risen any higher, so get him now.

Joc Pederson – OF, LAD vs MIL ($3,700)

Pederson is another leadoff hitter to grab, as he can easily score runs in the scorching hot Dodgers lineup. Brewers starter Corbin Burnes is prone to blow ups, so the Dodgers may have another offensive onslaught.
