FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Justin Verlander - HOU vs TEX ($10,700) 

There are plenty of aces on the mound tonight, and you can't really go wrong with any of the top six starting pitchers on the slate. However, Verlander stands above the rest of the field, particularly in GPP contests, for his strikeout upside. Verlander has a monster 31.5% K-rate and faces a Rangers lineup that strikes out 25.3% of the time against righties, which is fourth-highest in the league. Verlander has a 3.14 Deserved Run Average and is worth investing into in all contests.

Tyler Mahle - CIN vs STL ($6,200) 

If you're looking to save payroll at starting pitcher, Mahle will give you plenty of cash to put into your hitters, as he's one of the cheapest starters on the slate. He's certainly risky, but Mahle is a better pitcher than any of the starters in his price range - his 3.82 xFIP and 4.03 SIERA suggest that he's a roughly league-average pitcher. He faces a weak opponent in the Cardinals, who have just a .305 wOBA against right-handed pitching. There's lots of room for profit here with Mahle, who is well underpriced.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

1B - C.J. Cron - MIN vs. OAK - $3,200 

Cron is in a strong spot batting fifth for the Twins, where he can see lots of RBI chances against A's starter Chris Bassitt. Bassitt has outperformed his 3.98 ERA, as his 4.42 FIP and 4.71 SIERA give a more accurate idea of his abilities. Cron has the potential to be one of the top contributors at first base tonight despite being priced outside the top 20 at the position, and is worth using with some Twins teammates if possible.

2B - Cavan Biggio - TOR at DET - $3,400 

Biggio is an interesting buy low candidate, as his 16.9% K-rate is one of the best in the league. It keeps his OBP up at a respectable .352 mark, which is remarkable considering his .222 average. He's also shown both power and speed, with six homers and six steals in just 177 plate appearances. Most importantly, he'll be batting cleanup against one of the worst pitchers in the bigs, Jordan Zimmermann, owner of a 7.01 ERA.

3B - Eugenio Suarez - CIN vs STL - $3,500

Suarez is particularly attractive when he's at home in his hitter-friendly ballpark in Cincinnati. He's an ideal GPP tournament target for his power upside, with 24 home runs on the year. Opposing starter Adam Wainwright has a 4.34 FIP, so Suarez is a great play to rack up counting stats batting third for the Reds.

SS - Didi Gregorius - NYY vs COL - $3,000 

Gregorius has yet to get hot this year after returning from an injury, but it's important to remember how valuable he's been over the past two seasons, with back-to-back years of 25+ home runs. Didi is an extreme hitter's environment in Yankee Stadium, and Rockies starter Kyle Freeland has a 2.27 HR/9 and a 7.39 ERA. This is a chance to get a cheap Yankee bat in a perfect scenario.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Hunter Renfroe - SDP at CHC - $3,000

Renfroe has absolutely obliterated left-handed pitching this year, with a 161 wRC+ and just a 17.1% K-rate. He usually has to battle with the best pitcher's park in the league at home, but is in a much better place to hit in Wrigley. Cubs starter Jon Lester has a 1.51 HR/9, so Renfroe can easily add to his 27 home run total - if not, he should still produce out of the cleanup spot.

Khris Davis - OAK at MIN - $3,100 

Davis hasn't quite looked like himself this year and is mired in a deep slump right now. That being said, he's someone to consider buying low at this price, as he's still got elite power capabilities. Jake Odorizzi looks like a candidate to regress, with a 4.76 DRA and a 4.36 SIERA, so don't be scared off by his good season thus far.
