FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/20/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We're back to a pretty balanced split-slate Wednesday. Five games are taking place under the sun at the 12:35 Early Only slate, and there are seven games being played under the lights for the 7:05 Main slate.

A nice handful of quality pitchers are taking the bump in each slate, too! You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Charlie Morton - SP, vs TBR ($10,000)

Morton is my top cash game option on the board as he has a strong matchup, the Rays have the lowest projected total of the Main slate (3.1), and he's boasting a very impressive 10.8 K/9 this season. The price is a bit high for a player who has failed to meet salary based expectations in two straight games, but the Rays have one of the weakest offenses in the game and their projected lineup owns a 28.5% K rate against right-handed pitching this season. For the season, he's been impressive not only in missing bats, but also limiting opponents' hard contact to just 26% with an average exit velocity of 88 miles per hour.

Also Consider for the Main slate: Gio Gonzalez - SP, vs BAL ($9,200)

Pitchers to consider for the Early slate: Corey Kluber - SP, vs CWS ($12,100); Ross Stripling - SP, at CHC ($9,400); Anibal Sanchez - SP, at TOR ($7,000)


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Chris Iannetta - C, vs NYM ($3,300)

Getting great value here for a solid hitter playing at the always attractive Coors Field tonight. Iannetta is a reverse splits guy, and he draws a pretty good matchup against Seth Lugo. Iannetta not only has strong righty-righty splits, but he also has been making great contact in the past week with a 62% hard contact rate and an average batted ball distance 232 feet.

Eric Thames - 1B, at PIT ($3,800)

Thames has only been back for five games, but he appears to have not missed a beat. In that stretch, he has a 62% hard hit rate and a 52% fly ball rate. Certainly that's a small sample size, so, more importantly he owns a .281 ISO split and opposing starter Chad Kuhl has allowed 1.79 HR to left-handed batters this season.

Adrian Beltre - 3B, at KCR ($3,400)

Beltre has been having a really solid week and I think the matchup here against Jakob Junis allows him to keep the good times rolling. The price tag is pretty much a steal when you consider the upside and the lineup context, too. In the past week, Beltre has a 53% hard hit rate and a 23% line drive rate, and also boasts a .367 wOBA split against right-handed pitching this season.

Didi Gregorious - SS, vs SEA ($4,000)

Quite a few shortstops with desirable matchups today in the high price range, but as I'd like to be able to pay up for Charlie Morton, I think Didi represents the best value and upside. He has fantastic splits against right-handed pitching (.367 wOBA, .270 ISO) for the position, and his hard hit rate has crept back up near 40%, while his fly ball rate is above 40% as well. I like his chances for a home run this evening.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Aaron Judge - OF, vs SEA ($4,800)

The results have been a little up and down over the past week, but Judge's batted ball data has been positive (53% hard hit rate, average exit veloctity of 98 miles per hour.) At home in the extremely-home-run friendly Yankee Stadium, I like his chances tonight against Felix Hernandez, who has been giving up hits in bunches lately. Judge boasts a tremendous .420 wOBA and .320 ISO split.

Shin-Soo Choo - OF, at KCR ($3,800)

Choo has been smoking the baseball of late and has put up monster numbers in three of his last six games (while sitting right at his price implied total in the other three). He owns a 46% hard hit rate over the past two weeks and has improved his ISO split against right-handed pitching to .200, and his wOBA mark is an impressive .351. Real nice value here considering the matchup and the fact he could see 5+ at-bats tonight in Kansas City.
