FanDuel DFS Pitchers

German Marquez, COL at SDP ($8,100)

Marquez is always worth a look when he's on the road, as he's got a 3.53 ERA away from hitter-friendly Coors Field. He gets a dramatic shift in park factors going to a pitcher's park in San Diego, facing a Padres lineup that is below-average against righties with their .310 wOBA. They've also got the second-highest K-rate in the league versus right-handers at 26.2%, so Marquez has significant strikeout upside. Marquez should easily finish as one of the top starting pitchers on Sunday, and you can get him at a very affordable price.

Ryan Yarbrough, TAM at SEA ($7,300)

Yarbrough has quietly been tearing it up for the Rays over the last month, posting a 2.36 with a 0.76 WHIP in 26 2/3 innings. He's got a strong 3.56 FIP this year, although his ceiling is limited by his modest strikeout numbers. Still, Yarbrough can return profit at such a low price against the tanking Mariners, who have had one of the weakest offenses in the last 30 days with just a .299 wOBA and a ridiculous 29.5% K-rate. Yarbrough is a value starter to target if you're looking for some expensive hitters.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Albert Pujols – 1B, LAA at BOS ($3,000)

It's rare that Pujols is in a situation enticing enough to warrant playing him, but he's definitely worth a look in an extreme hitter's environment against Andrew Cashner. Cashner has given up six earned runs in each of his last two starts and has a 7.57 ERA since joining the Red Sox. Pujols has already homered once in this series, and the Angels are coming off of a 16 run night - with another performance like that, Pujols will have plenty of RBI opportunities at a low price. Consider teammate Shohei Ohtani alongside him.

Jose Peraza – 2B, CIN vs CHC ($2,000)

Today's second base options are quite rough, so your best bet looks like a choice between between paying for Jose Altuve or punting the position entirely. That's the goal with Peraza, as you can at least get a player in the starting lineup for the minimum price. For as bad as Peraza has been this year, he's handled lefties with a .276 average and gets a southpaw in Jon Lester who has a 4.81 Deserved Run Average. He can also be used as a member of a Reds stack along with Nick Senzel and Eugenio Suarez.

Alex Bregman - 3B, HOU at BAL ($3,900)

Bregman and other Astros bats are just too easy of a call after their 23 run onslaught against the Orioles on Saturday. Bregman is worth investing in as the top third baseman on the slate in another game against the league's worst pitching staff. He's got an elite 154 wRC+ this season with a walk-rate (17.1%) that's much higher than his K-rate (12.7%).

Didi Gregorius – SS, NYY at TOR ($3,200)

Didi is in an awesome spot for counting stats batting third for the Yankees in a game where they should score some runs. Toronto is an ideal hitter's park, and opposing starter Trent Thornton has a 5.55 ERA with a 1.57 HR/9, so Gregorius can go deep in this matchup. He's a good buy low candidate at this price.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Eddie Rosario, MIN vs CLE ($3,600)

Rosario is an outfielder to consider in GPP tournaments for his power potential, as he's got 25 homers this year, although he may be a fade in cash games for his low OBP. Rosario has an .849 OPS against right-handed pitching and faces a pitcher making just his third big-league start in Aaron Civale.

Avisail Garcia, TAM at SEA ($3,100)

Garcia has been much better against lefties throughout his career, with a 118 wRC+, and he faces a weak one in Wade LeBlanc. LeBlanc has an awful 5.38 ERA, and Garcia is batting .297 with a .972 OPS over the last two weeks. He is in a great spot to rack up RBI batting cleanup for the Rays.
