FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Zack Greinke - P, vs PHI ($10,200)

Greinke has been playing at an elite level in Arizona this season. Through 12 home starts, he owns a 5-2 record with a 2.44 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. He also possesses a 9.4 K/9 through 73.2 home innings. Greinke gets a great matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies, who have struggled on the road this season. Greinke is a -155 favorite in a game set at 8 runs, and he can be used in all leagues.

Tyler Glasnow - P, vs BAL ($5,700)

Glasnow's role for the Tampa Bay Rays is a bit unknown, as he only threw three innings in his first start. He has the potential to pitch deeper into games, though, and he comes with strikeout upside. Glasnow gets an elite matchup against the Baltimore Orioles, and he's a -165 favorite in a game set at 8 runs. He should strictly be used in GPPs, as we are not sure if he's on an innings limit at this point.


FanDuel DFS Infielders

Salvador Perez - C/1B, vs CHC ($3,100)

Perez is hitting .268 with four home runs and eight RBIs over his last 10 games. He gets a matchup against Mike Montgomery, and Perez features 0.054 wOBA and 0.102 ISO differentials against left-handed pitching. He's a catcher hitting third in the Royals lineup, and he makes a high upside option for a reasonable price tag tonight.

Devon Travis - 2B, vs BOS ($2,400)

Travis has struggled a bit recently, but he does come with quite a bit of upside. He's expected to hit second in the Toronto lineup, meaning he could see a few extra at-bats tonight. He also has dominated left-handed pitching, posting 0.078 wOBA and 0.12 ISO differentials against lefties. Travis gets a matchup against Drew Pomeranz tonight, and he can be considered in all leagues.

Eugenio Suarez - 3B, at NYM ($3,900)

Suarez is an option that can always be considered against left-handed pitching. In 2018, he owns a .707 slugging percentage and a .326 ISO against lefties. He also gets one of the best matchups on the slate, as he'll face off against Jason Vargas. Suarez is a player that can be considered in all leagues.

Didi Gregorius - SS, at CHW ($3,800)

Gregorius has been heating up over his last 10 games, hitting .300 with a .575 slugging percentage and a .939 OPS over his last 10 games. He gets a good matchup against Reynaldo Lopez in a fairly hitter friendly stadium tonight. Gregorius has been a more consistent and more powerful option against right-handed pitching, and he can be used in all leagues.


FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Shin-Soo Choo - OF, vs SEA ($3,700)

Choo is only hitting .182 over his last 10 games, but he also owns five extra-base hits (two home runs) and nine RBIs over that span. He gets a great matchup against Felix Hernandez in an extremely hitter friendly stadium, as well. Choo's price never seems to increase on FanDuel, and he's an elite option on this slate.

Phillip Ervin - OF, at NYM ($2,300)

Ervin has caught fire recently, as he's hitting .407 with a .704 slugging percentage and a 1.123 OPS over his last 10 games. He has dominated left-handed pitching, recording 0.129 wOBA and 0.085 ISO differentials against lefties. He gets an elite matchup against Jason Vargas tonight, and Ervin makes a great option in all leagues tonight.
