We have a five-game early slate to kick off our Saturday and then six on the 7 pm main slate. On both slates, we have some serious pitching options, so you should be set whether you are a cash game player or looking for some upside in GPPs.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 7/14/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Aaron Nola - P, PHI @ MIA (FD - $10,700)

Nola is one of the best pitchers on the slate today and you should be looking to get him in your cash game lineups. He has posted eight or more strikeouts in three straight starts, while only allowing two earned runs in that span. Nola is giving up a .245 wOBA or lower to both LHB and RHB this season, which are simply just stellar numbers. He is up against the Marlins today, who come in with a team wOBA sitting at .303 and a team ISO of .129, which is third worst in the league.

Kyle Hendricks - P, CHC @ SDP (FD - $7,500)

Hendricks is coming off a very impressive start where he went 8.1 innings, with eight strikeouts, one walk, and no earned runs. Really love this spot for him to continue that success tonight vs the Padres, who come in with team wOBA of .285 and a team ISO of .121 vs RHP, both of which are dead last in the league. This is a great pitcher's park and Hendricks really isn't that expensive on this slate.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Ian Desmond - 1B, COL vs SEA (FD - $3,900)

Always nice to get some exposure to hitters at Coors Field, so why not take Desmond, who has been super hot as of late? He has hits in 12 of his last 14 games and comes in with a .384 wOBA and .274 ISO vs left-handed pitchers. The platoon advantage will be there for him, so load up the righties from the Rockies today.

Brock Holt - 2B, BOS vs TOR (FD - $2,700)

Holt is cheap and gets you exposure to the Red Sox powerful offense, which is never a bad thing. He comes in with a .311 wOBA vs right-handed pitchers this season and will be facing off against Sam Gaviglio, who is giving up a .322 wOBA to lefties this season. Holt hit in the second hole last night, so hopefully, we see him high in the order again today.

Jose Ramirez - 3B, CLE vs NYY (FD - $4,700)

Ramirez is one of the best hitters in baseball and comes in with a very solid .347 wOBA vs left-handed pitchers this season. He also sports a super low 10 walk rate vs LHP, so never losing an opportunity at the plate. He is 5-for-1o in his career vs Sabathia, which isn't the biggest sample size but shows an encouraging sign to build on.

Chris Taylor - SS, LOS vs LAA (FD - $3,300)

Taylor seems a bit too cheap considering the numbers he has vs left-handed pitchers this season, so should be viable in both cash games and GPPs. He comes in with a .323 wOBA and a .204 ISO this season vs LHP. He has two doubles in his last four games, not including last night, along with two RBIs.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Kyle Schwarber - OF, CHC @ SDP (FD - $3,300)

Schwarber always has home run upside when he is facing a right-handed pitcher, as he is tonight, but he is more of a GPP play tonight. We know it's not the best hitter's park in San Diego, but he is up against Luis Perdomo, who is giving up a .398 wOBA to lefties this season. Schwarber has a .290 ISO vs RHP, which has multi-home run potential with it.

Scott Schebler - OF, CIN @ STL (FD - $3,400)

Schebler comes into this game with a .222 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and despite this being a negative park shift for him, he has nice home run upside today. He is facing off against Jack Flaherty, who is giving up 1.01 HR/9 to lefties this season.
