FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (4/26/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We have a splits slate of games, but the majority of them are on the 7 PM main slate. There are some fantastic pitching options on the slate, so you will need to find some value plays out there to fit these aces in your lineups.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 4/26/18. 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 @DFS_Tom.


FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Chris Sale - P, BOS @ TOR (FD - $11,400)

Sale is on the mound today, so you should be doing whatever you can to get him into your lineups. He comes into this game with a 35% strikeout rate or higher versus both right-handed and left-handed hitters. He has eight or more strikeouts in four of his five starts this season and has only given up six walks. The Blue Jays have a 23% strikeout rate versus left-handed pitchers this season, which is around average for the slate. The best part about Sale is that he has a 15% swinging strike rate, meaning hitters just can get an eye for what he is throwing. He will be the chalk pitcher in cash games but is likely to come away with the win, as he is -185 on the road.

Carlos Martinez - P, STL vs NYM (FD - $9,500)

Martinez has three starts this season with seven strikeouts or more, two of which are 10 or more. Really putting up some big numbers there, the issue with him is the walks this year, as he has given up 17 in 31 innings. That is one potential downfall for him, but he has been able to limit the runs from those walks, only having given up five earned runs. He has a 25% strikeout rate this year, while the Mets have a 22% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers. Solid in all formats tonight, good park factor, and shown solid consistency this season.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Salvador Perez - C, KAN vs CWS (FD - $3,000)

Perez is back from his injury and has one home run and two RBI's in his first two games, and while that rate won't sustain he is a solid option at catcher today. Last season he had a .333 wOBA and a .221 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, putting him in a good spot tonight. He is up against Giolito, who is giving up a .320 wOBA to right-handed hitters this season.

Freddie Freeman - 1B, ATL @ CIN (FD - $4,500)

Anytime you can get some exposure to Free Money Freddie, you should do so. He is as consistent as they come, along with having power upside. This season he has a 131 wRC+ and a .194 ISO vs right-handed pitchers. He is up against Homer Bailey, who gave up a .356 wOBA to left-handed hitters last year.

Ketel Marte - 2B, ARI @ PHI (FD - $2,800)

Marte is a cheaper option at second base today and is up against Ben Lively, who is giving up a .432 wOBA to left-handed hitters this season. Marte has a three-game hitting streak going right now but isn't producing too much in the other categories. The offense around him is solid, and he could fall into some points up against this weak pitcher.

Miguel Andujar - 3B, NYY vs MIN (FD - $3,700)

Andujar is super hot right now, and with the Yankees having the highest implied run total on the board sitting at 5.27, you want some exposure to them. He has six multi-hit games over his last nine games and has added eight RBI's and two home runs. Great hitters park, up against a gas can, should make a great option today.

Jordy Mercer - SS, PIT vs DET (FD - $2,600)

Mercer has a .304 wOBA and a .132 ISO this season vs right-handed pitchers this season, which may not be amazing numbers, but he is cheap. He has four hits over his last three games, two runs, and one extra-base hit.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Andrew Benintendi - OF, BOS @ TOR (FD - $3,800)

Benintendi may not be off to the best start this season, but he makes a nice addition to a Red Sox stack, which should be putting up runs tonight. They are up against Marco Estrada, who gave up 1.50 HR/9 to hitters last season. With the power the Sox have, and the matchup, they come in with an implied run total sitting at 4.49, which is second highest on the night slate.

Aaron Hicks - OF, NYY vs MIN (FD - $3,900)

Hicks had the day off yesterday, so he should be set to return to the lineup today. He is putting up consistent production in many different categories, hits, runs, walks, so plenty of ways for him to reach value. Great addition to a Yankees stack, which has big-time power upside vs Kyle Gibson.
