It's Friday, so we've got nearly every team in action, with lots of different lineups for us to build. The all day slate starts at 2:20pm eastern, while the main slate starts at 7:10pm and covers 13 games.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 5/3/2019. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Matthew Boyd: DET vs KC ($10,400)

Boyd has put together an incredible season so far, posting a 31.8% K-rate with a 6.6% walk-rate. His 2.21 FIP is second to only Max Scherzer out of all qualified starting pitchers. Boyd gets to face a Royals lineup that is bottom-five against left-handed pitching with their .284 wOBA. On a night with lots of high-end pitching to choose from, Boyd stands out from the crowd because of his extreme strikeout upside and his easy matchup at home.

Kevin Gausman: ATL at MIA ($8,100)

Gausman has an ugly 4.80 ERA entering Friday, but his 3.14 Deserved Run Average suggests that he's pitched much better than his results have shown. Gausman has 33 strikeouts in 30 innings and faces an awful Marlins lineup that has just a .276 wOBA versus righties. Gausman also gets to take advantage of a very pitcher-friendly park in Miami. If you aren't willing to pay for an elite pitcher, Gausman is a nice pick.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Nathaniel Lowe: 1B, TAM at BAL ($2,400)

Lowe only has three major league games under his belt, but he was obliterating in triple-A prior to his call up. Lowe had a 155 wRC+ in Durham, which is why the Rays are already batting him fifth against righties. Opposing starter Dan Straily has an insanely bad 8.16 FIP with a 3.38 HR/9, and Lowe gets to face him in a tremendous hitter's park. The Rays are a lineup I'd highly recommend stacking, and Lowe is a no-brainer to include at this price.

Wilmer Flores: 2B, ARI at COL ($3,000)

It's tough to find many affordable bats in Coors Field, the league's premiere offensive environment. While Flores hasn't done much this year, there's still lots of potential for profit at this price. Flores has been significantly better against left-handed pitching in his career and gets to face a southpaw tonight.

Eugenio Suarez: 3B, CIN vs SF ($3,300)

Suarez is a player to target in GPP contests as a cheap power upside bat. He's got four home runs over the last two weeks and is always a threat to go deep at home in a hitter-friendly park in Cincinnati. Even if Suarez doesn't go deep, he should definitely produce against a pitcher making his big league debut in Tyler Beede.

Jean Segura: SS, PHI vs WAS ($3,800)

In cash games, Segura is a player I'm targeting. He's batting .385 since returning from the injured list and is in a fantastic spot batting second for the Phillies, where he can provide both runs and RBI between Andrew McCutchen and Bryce Harper. Nationals starter Jeremy Hellickson has a 5.82 ERA with just a 13.0% K-rate, so Segura and the Phils should have a big night.

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

J.D. Martinez: OF, BOS at CWS ($3,900)

Even though he's had an underwhelming power output, Martinez has been striking out at just a 13.2% rate this year, an incredible decrease from his 22.5% last season. I would still expect his power to rebound, and Friday is the perfect opportunity against Reynaldo Lopez, owner of a 2.01 HR/9 and a 6.03 ERA. Martinez is obviously still an elite hitter, and you can get him at a modest discount.

Ryan Braun: OF, MIL vs NYM ($2,700)

Braun has always shredded left-handed pitching, as he's coming off of a 125 wRC+ against lefties in 2018. He faces a southpaw in Steven Matz tonight, which means that he'll be in a valuable spot batting third for the Brewers. Matz's 4.73 FIP is more than a run higher than his ERA, so there's regression on the way - hitter-friendly Miller Park is exactly where it may happen.
