FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/13/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

For reasons unbeknownest to me, FanDuel decided to split the afternoon games into smaller, unattractive slates. Luckily, nine of the games are being played under the lights in the Main slate - and this post will focus on that action.

Once we get closer to first pitch, I'll call out some notable line movement and any interesting action in Vegas. As of Tuesday night, the highest implied run totals for the Main slate are as follows: the Cardinals are at 5.1, and three teams are right beneath them at 4.9 - Reds, Indians and Twins.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 6/13/18.  You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too. If you have any questions about Fantasy Baseball, feel free to contact me on Twitter @kpLuch.


FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Trevor Bauer - SP, at CWS ($10,200)

Bauer is pitching incredibly well this season. He's shown a greater command of his pitches and even added to his repetoire. He owns a really strong 10.5 K/9 and has a solid 1.2 WHIP and 0.8 HR/9 through 85 innings pitched in 2018. He's especially dazzled of late, recording double digit strikeouts in three straight games, while limiting walks and held his opponents to eight runs in that stretch. Tonight, he'll take on the strikeout prone White Sox, who have the second lowest implied run total at just 3.6 runs.

Nick Pivetta - SP, vs COL ($8,000)

Despite his recent inability to hit his price implied DFS total (past three starts), I have a lot of tournament interest in the big right-hander and his talented arm. He takes on a Rockies team that ranks 23rd in advanced metrics offense against righties this season, and they're currently implied for just 3.9 runs. Nothing in his peripherals over his past three starts show any cause for concern - his velocity was the same, and his opponent hard his rate was just 28% - four percentage points lower than his season average. Seeing that he has over a 10 K/9 mark this season and a 27% strikeout rate - not to mention the Rockies projected lineup also owns a 27% K rate against righties this season - I like his chances to rack up some strikeouts and cruise past value tonight at home.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Tucker Barnhart - C, at KCR ($2,400)

I really like Barnhart as a value play today - particularly one you'd stick in your lineup if you're paying up for a five-figure starting pitcher. He gets a good matchup, will have strong lineup context and has been hitting the ball well of late - highlighted by his recent 42% hard hit rate. He owns a .311 wOBA split against right-handed pitching.

Jose Martinez - 1B, vs SDP ($4,400)

Martinez - who has been absolutely smashing the ball over his past 12 games to the tune of a 66% hard hit rate - gets an awesome matchup tonight against Eric Lauer. Lauer has surrendered over a .400 wOBA and .500 slugging percentage to right-handed batters this season. Over the past 12 months, Martinez has really strong numbers against southpaws, highighted by a .498 wOBA and a .368 ISO.

Scooter Gennett - 2B, at KCR ($4,000)

Going back to the Scooter well tonight. I was a bit torn between Gennett and Brian Dozier - who both have similar splits, similar spot in the order and their teams have similar run projections. It's a bit like splitting hairs until you get to their opposing pitcher splits - Gennett has the easier matchup here and I don't think he'll let us down. He boasts a .237 ISO split against righties this season.

Justin Turner - 3B, vs TEX ($3,200)

I know he's just returning from injury, but considering the upside he brings and the awesome lineup context (this Dodgers offense is running hot), I like taking a shot on him today in cash or tournaments. Hamels is having a bit of a revival this season, but he's still struggled a bit with right-handed bats - particularly in the power department, allowing 2.19 HR/9 in 2018. Turner owns very impressive splits against southpaws, too, highlighted by a .503 wOBA and a .375 ISO.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Tommy Pham - OF, vs SDP ($4,000)

Pham may not have the elite splits against righties that his teammate Jose Martinez possesses, but his numbers are pretty damn good and he's in a great spot. The Cardinals have the highest implied run total of the evening and face a pitcher with the lowest swinging strike rate on the slate. His 50% hard hit rate over the past four series is really strong, and he also has a .395 wOBA split this season.

Rhys Hoskins - OF, vs COL ($3,400)

Hoskins is a nice way to get some salary savings while not sarcificing extra-base hit upside. He's played three games since returning from injury, and is swinging the bat just fine, going deep once and producing five runs batted in in that small stretch. He gets a pretty good matchup tonight, and for his young career, he's been particularly strong against southpaws. Dating back to last season, he's showcased a .391 wOBA split and a .262 ISO split.
