FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Kyle Hendricks: CHC vs ARI ($7,000)

While Hendricks hasn't pitched well this season, I wouldn't be worried about him after just three starts. At this price, Hendricks will be a great value if he can pitch the way he did last year. He gets a pretty weak opponent in the Diamondbacks and is a nice play in the early slate if you're looking to spend more on your bats.

Caleb Smith: MIA at WAS ($7,600)

Caleb Smith has pitched like an ace this season, and it looks legit. He's got an outstanding 32.3% K-rate and a 3.22 FIP after shutting out a tough Phillies lineup through six innings. Smith has a ton of strikeout upside against a Nationals lineup that has a 25.0% K-rate. I love him in GPP contests at this low price.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Jose Abreu: 1B, CWS at DET  ($2,800)

Abreu is off to an awful start, but he is an awesome buy low at this price. He should see plenty of run and RBI opportunities batting third for the White Sox against Jordan Zimmermann, who got shelled for five earned runs his last time out. Abreu is getting killed by a .200 BABIP and should return to form in no time.

Mike Moustakas: 2B, MIL vs LAD ($3,600)

Moustakas is crushing the ball so far this year, with six home runs and a .911 OPS. He's always worth a look when he's at home in hitter-friendly Miller Park batting cleanup for the Brewers. Moose continues to be undervalued at this price.

Alex Bregman: 3B, HOU at TEX ($4,000)

Bregman absolutely obliterated left-handed pitching last year to the tune of a 166 wRC+. He's facing Rangers southpaw Drew Smyly, who has a horrific 7.15 ERA. This is a chance to get an elite bat with a dream matchup for a below-market price.

Jorge Polanco: SS, MIN at BAL ($4,300)

Polanco is going berserk this season with a .400/.464/.717 line. He's in an extreme hitter's park in Baltimore against garbage Alex Cobb, who had a 4.90 ERA in 2018.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Charlie Blackmon: COL vs. PHI ($3,500)

Blackmon is batting leadoff in the best hitting environment in all of baseball, Coors Field. Despite a cold start, he is a no-brainer at this price. Phillies starter Vince Velasquez is likely to regress from his 2.25 ERA, as he's got a poor 4.69 ERA. The Rockies should score lots of runs, and Blackmon will have lots of production atop the lineup.

Joc Pederson: LAD vs MIL ($4,200)

Pederson is another leadoff hitter to target, as he will also be able to maximize his number of plate appearances. Pederson has a fantastic 1.015 OPS and and faces Jhoulys Chacin, who owns a 6.52 ERA.
