FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Matt Boyd: DET at KC ($10,100) 

Boyd is the best bet if you’re a cash game player because of his sky-high floor. Any guy pitching to a 3.33 xFIP, 1.12 WHIP and 32 percent K rate is tough to avoid, especially in a matchup like this. The Royals currently rank 24th in runs scored, 26th in OPS and 25th in xwOBA. He’s had success against the Royals this season too, striking out 16 batters across 11 innings in two starts against them.

Chris Bassitt: OAK vs. CWS ($6,800) 

This price really surprises me, as I have Bassitt projected to be an $8,000-player in this matchup. The main reason why is because of the White Sox, with Chicago sitting 25th in runs scored, 22nd in wOBA and 23rd in K rate. That’s a recipe for disaster in a pitcher’s park like Oakland Coliseum and Bassitt has definitely taken advantage of that. The A’s righty posted a 3.64 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across his first 11 starts, despite struggling in his last three outings. We’re going to chalk that up to fatigue and the All-Star break could be just what the doctor ordered. Vegas agrees with this assessment, making Bassitt a –180 favorite in this game.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Daniel Vogelbach: 1B, SEA vs, LAA ($3,700) 

We have to get some hitters in there against Matt Harvey. The Angels righty is currently pitching to a 7.50 ERA and 1.52 WHIP this season, which is sadly the pitcher we’ve been seeing for three years now. That’s perfect for a guy like Vogelbach, who’s generating a .596 SLG and 1.014 OPS against right-handers so far this season.

Gleyber Torres: 2B, NYY at TOR ($3,600) 

Stacking the Yankees is definitely a solid strategy on this slate, as they should roll right through a weak lefty like Clayton Richard. The Blue Jays southpaw is currently pitching to a 6.23 ERA and 1.59 WHIP, which is a disaster against an offense like this. That’s why the Yankees are projected for more than six runs and Torres should be a huge part of that. Since joining New York, Torres is generating a .532 SLG and .866 OPS with the platoon advantage in his favor. What also makes Torres an elite option is the fact that the second base position is so ugly and there are not many options out there with the same upside at Torres.

Eugenio Suarez: 3B, CIN at COL ($4,000) 

Suarez has had a down year for his standards but he’s in a great spot to succeed here. Hitting in Coors Field is a dandy for any hitter, particularly when you face a guy like Kyle Freeland. The Rockies lefty is pitching to a 7.13 ERA and 1.57 WHIP this season, which is a nightmare against a righty masher like Suarez.  The Reds third baseman is posting a 1.013 OPS and .587 SLG against lefties since the beginning of last season and homered in his first game at Coors on Friday.

Trevor Story: SS, COL vs. CIN ($4,500) 

We have to get at least one Rockies bat into this article. The reason for that is because they’re projected for more than six runs, which is the highest implied run total in this slate. That’s really no surprise against Tanner Roark, who’s pitching to a 4.30 ERA and 1.30 WHIP since 2017. That’s not terrible but it certainly won't get it done in Coors Field against a guy like Story. The Rockies shortstop has a .660 SLG and 1.040 OPS at home since last season if you needed any more incentive.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Yasiel Puig: CIN at COL ($3,800) 

Puig is quietly one of the hottest hitters in the league and that’s a fantastic sign headed into Coors Field. Over his last 27 games, Puig has accumulated 18 runs scored, six doubles, 10 homers, 19 RBI and six stolen bases en route to a 1.136 OPS. That’s the stud we’ve been waiting for all season and it’s scary that he gets the platoon advantage against a struggling pitcher like Freeland.

Khris Davis: OAK vs. CWS ($3,200) 

Davis has the most home runs in the Majors since 2016 and it’s hard to understand why he remains so cheap. The recent struggles are definitely playing a factor in that price but he’s still on pace for more than 30 homers and has an ISO approaching .300 in that three-year span. That’s rare to see from a $3,200 player, especially in a premium matchup. Davis gets to face Dylan Covey, who owns a 5.84 ERA and 1.54 WHIP for his career.

Jarrod Dyson: ARI at STL ($2,900) 

This price continues to surprise me, as Dyson has been destroying it for the majority of the season. Not only has he been hitting leadoff for most of the year, Dyson is also setting career highs in OBP, SLG and OPS. That’s all you can ask for from a speed demon like Dyson, who has serious steal potential against a slow pitcher like Adam Wainwright. The Cardinals righty has been struggling with lefties all season long too, allowing them to post wOBA north of .400 against him.
