FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Walker Buehler: LOS @ SFG ($9,400)

The 24-year-old's numbers aren't what they were expected to be at this point of the season as he has been inconsistent, alternating good and bad starts. But if that trend holds true, he is due for a solid outing. His 1.17 WHIP and .230 BAA against ranks in the top-35 of the league among all starters.

Buehler, who is ranked second among tonight's starters in RotoBaller's pitcher's rankings, gets an outstanding matchup against the Giants. The Giants enter the game hitting a Major League-worst .203 against right-handers. Plus, they have struggled at home this season compiling a .197 BA, 3.21 runs and a .589 OPS in 14 contests at Oracle Park.

Vince Velasquez: PHI vs. DET ($8,200)

Velaquez is a little cheaper option than Buehler, and he also has an outstanding matchup against the Tigers. Detroit has struggled to hit away from home and against right-handers this year. Plus, the Tigers own a league-high 27.1 percent strikeout rate.

Velaquez has been a pleasant surprise this season, posting a strong 1.01 WHIP and .195 BAA in five appearances, including four starts. He has registered 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings so far, which is not fantastic, but opponents are only hitting .228 against him when they have put balls in play.

The right-hander is coming off a three-hit, six strikeout performance in a win over the Mets on April 24. He also induced two times as many ground balls as fly balls (eight-to-four) in the contest.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

James McCann: C, CWS vs. BAL ($2,800)

McCann is a real cheap option if he is in the lineup. The fifth-year catcher is off to an outstanding start in his first season with the White Sox, compiling a slash line of .357/.400/.536  with two home runs and five RBI along with a pair of steals in 14 games. He has been really swinging the bat well since moving to the cleanup spot in the order, collecting eight hits -- including two extra-base hits -- in 18 at-bats.

Mike Moustakas: 2B, MIL vs. COL ($3,300)

The 30-year-old has been really hot over the last two weeks, posting a slash line of .375/.444/ .656 in 36 plate appearances. He also has hit right-handed pitchers well, particularly in night games. Additionally, six of his 10 hits at Miller Park this season have been for extra-bases which includes three dingers.

Asdrubal Cabrera: 3B, TEX vs. PIT ($2,800)

Cabrera has missed the last three games with a calf injury, but he is slated to be in the lineup against right-hander Jordan Lyles. The switch-hitter has swung the bat fairly well over his last 30 at-bats, accumulating a slash line of .300/. 364/.533. He also has experienced his most success at the plate this season versus right-handers as well as when playing in Rangers Park at Arlington.

Ronny Rodriguez: SS, DET  @ PHI ($2,800)

Another cheap option, Rodriguez has been very good in his limited playing time this year. The 27-year-old, who has played well on the road this season, has registered a slash line of .280/.321/.680 in 27 plate appearances to go along with a .400 isolated power rating as six of his seven hits has been for extra-bases, which includes two home runs. He faces a Phillies pitching staff that ranks 19th in the league in slugging percentage against and 20th in WHIP.

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Cody Bellinger : OF, LAD @ SF ($5,300)

Wow!!! The cost is substantial for the second-year pro, but how can you not go with a player who leads the NL in every major batting category while also being a threat to steal a base. Bellinger, who has hit left-handers well this season so far, has performed well against the Giants thus far in his career. He has put up a slash line of .305/.406/.492 in 69  career plate appearances at Oracle Park.

Yasiel Puig: OF, CIN @ NYM ($3,300)

The Cuban national has struggled most of the year, however, he appears to be starting to turn things around. Puig, who has a pretty good matchup against lefty Jason Vargas, has hit .286 and recorded a .859 OPS over his last 28 at-bats with two home runs and one double. He also has had decent success at Citi Park over the last three seasons.

Dwight Smith: OF, BAL @CWS ($3,300)

Smith has an excellent matchup against Ivan Nova, who has an astronomical .351 BAA as well as a 1.75 WHIP and 8.42 ERA. The 28-year-old left-handed hitter has produced a .333 average along with a .916 OPS in 72 career at-bats against righties.
