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

Major League Baseball decided to do a pretty imbalanced Wednesday split of day game and night games. As such, the Early Only slate is pretty weak, and the Main looks attractive (well, minus the dropoff of tonight as compared to last night - more on that later). As such, this article will concentrate on the 10-game Main slate, with first pitch at 7:05 Eastern.

Much of the action is still going as of this writing, and with that, there aren't a lot of Vegas lines to breakdown just yet. There are a few early ones, but none to make any hard decisions on yet. I'll update this when we get ones to dissect and analyze.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 6/6/18. 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 @kpLuch.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Shohei Ohtani - SP, vs KCR ($8,600)

Fairly ugly slate for cash game options, to be honest. As of now, the one I'm feeling most confident in terms of preventing runs and a sturdy point floor is Ohtani. He'll be pitching in the cavernous Angels' stadium and the Royals - who rank in the bottom 10 in the league against right-handers in many advanced statistics (wRC+, wOBA, ISO) - are projected for a mere 3.1 runs Wednesday night. And last, but not least, Ohtani has an attractive batted ball profile of late, allowing just 23% hard hit balls and an average opponent exit velocty of just 86 miles per hour.

Jose Quintana - SP, vs PHI ($8,500)

The glass half full side of it being not a strong day for cash game pitching options is that there's a number of ways we can go in tournaments. Quite a few points volatile pitchers here, and much of that volatility comes from strikeout upside paired with not-so-strong (and/or consistent) run prevention. Quintana has looked better of late, beating out his price implied value in two of his last three starts. Tonight, he'll take his impressive 10.02 K/9 to the bump and face a strikeout prone (projected lineup: 28% this season against southpaws) - which gives him a good opportunity to give you a leg up in tournaments.

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Matt Olson - 1B, at TEX ($3,600)

Olson has been running hot of late, with a 62% hard hit rate over his last 13 games and beating his price implied value in three straight. He's still underpriced, and this is a good matchup for him against Bartolo Colon in a game he gets a park upgrade. In the past 12 months, he's posted an elite .412 wOBA mark and has a really strong .358 ISO.

Brian Dozier - 2B, vs CWS ($4,100)

Dozier has a really strong matchup here, and like Olson, he's been seeing the ball well. He's posted a 47% hard hit rate over the Twins last four series, and beaten value in three straight games. Hector Santiago has been really kind to right-handed batters this season, allowing a .364 wOBA and .542 slugging percentage. Dozier has a really high floor with his .419 wOBA split and the power upside is present too in the .242 ISO.

Nolan Arenado - 3B, at CIN ($4,800)

Arenado gets a pretty fine matchup away from Coors Field in the hitter-friendly Great American ballpark. Opposing starter Sal Romano has been kind to both left-handed and right-handed hitters this season, and Arenado boasts strong splits in wOBA and ISO (.367, .235 respectively). His batted ball profile over the last four series is impressive, too, highlighted by a 45% hard hit rate.

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Curtis Granderson - OF, vs NYY ($2,600)

Granderson looks to be a real strong value play here - especially if he's hitting leadoff - against Sonny Gray tonight. Gray has shown this year that he can give up runs in bunches, and Granderson has always provided a pretty solid floor (.362 wOBA split) and certainly upside via some pop in his bat (.262 ISO split over the past year).

Joey Gallo - 1B, vs OAK ($3,100)

Gallo has been producing well lately - and what's encouraging about his production is that it hasn't all been the result of a home run or two. He's hitting the ball hard and collecting extra-base hits. He owns a 50% hard hit rate in his last 12 games and his splits against right-handed pitching are strong, particularly in the ISO category where he has a .337 mark.

J.D. Martinez - OF, vs DET ($4,700)

JD struck a big fly again last night and I like his chances of repeating that tonight against Blaine Hardy at Fenway. His recent 48% hard hit rate is really strong, as is the average exit velocity of 93 miles per hour. Hardy will be overmatched in this one, which should provide strong lineup context and RBI opportunities for JD. Of course, his splits are amazing as well, with a .461 wOBA and .325 ISO mark.
