FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/11/19): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice


With a Coors Field game on this slate, we’re going to take a different approach. What we’re going to do is offer up two cheap pitchers, so that you can fill your lineup with Rockies and Cardinals. So, let’s get into those value arms.  

The MIN WSH game has a lot of rain in the forecast, so be sure to monitor that before submitting lineups

Be sure to also check out all the Vegas Odds for today's slate. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @Bartilottajoel

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Joe Musgrove, PIT at SF ($7,600) 

While Musgrove has been the model of inconsistency this season, we have to like him in a situation like this. Let’s start with that matchup, with the Giants ranked 26th in runs scored, 27th in OBP and 28th in both OPS and wOBA. Those are horrifying numbers for an offense who has to play in the toughest ballpark in the Majors, particularly against a guy like this. That definitely has to make us believe that Musgrove can throw one of his gems, scoring at least 28 FanDuel points in 16 of his 26 starts this season. Vegas agrees, giving San Fran an implied run total right around four.

Reynaldo Lopez, CWS vs. KC ($8,600) 

Lopez is coming off a one-hit complete game in his most recent start and it appears that he’s hit his stride in the second half. Despite allowing six runs just two starts ago, Lopez is pitching to a 3.38 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 rate over his last 11 starts. Lopez actually has at least 19 FanDuel points in all of those starts aside from that dud against the Braves and we have to believe that he’ll duplicate that prior form here against the Royals. For the year, Kansas City ranks 27th in runs scored, 25th in OBP, 27th in OPS and 23rd in wOBA. In his last two starts against the Royals this season, Lopez has a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 rate.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Daniel Murphy – 1B, COL vs. STL ($3,400) 

It’s going to be tough to fade the Rockies on this slate and Murphy is probably the best value of the bunch. The reason we like him is because he gets the platoon advantage, with Murph posting an OPS north of .900 against righties dating back to 2016. That pairs beautifully with his home numbers, with Murphy hitting .319 at home this season en route to an .844 OPS. That’s got to be scary for Dakota Hudson, with the Cardinals righty pitching to a 4.94 FIP and 1.41 WHIP this season.

Kolten Wong – 2B, STL at COL ($3,600) 

We also have to like the Cardinals in this Coors Field showdown, as Wong might be the best value on their team. What makes him really enticing is his recent form, with Wong accruing a .409 AVG, .705 SLG and 1.163 OPS over his last 12 games. That’s huge with Wong getting the platoon advantage against Antonio Senzatela, who's pitching to a 7.19 ERA and 1.79 WHIP. The implied run total only adds to these guys value, as this game as a total of 14 with two bad pitchers toeing the rubber.

Justin Turner - 3B, LAD at BAL ($3,600) 

The Dodgers are a nice stack outside of Coors Field and Turner would definitely play a huge part of that. The thing that we like today is that he gets to face a lefty, with Turner generating a .332 AVG, .425 OBP, .623 SLG and 1.048 OPS against them dating back to 2017. That’s scary for a regression candidate like John Means, with the Orioles southpaw pitching to a 5.51 xFIP so far this season. The icing on the cake is Turner’s recent form, with the redhead totaling a 1.079 OPS over his last 22 games.

Alex Bregman – SS, HOU vs, OAK ($4,500) 

How can we fade Bregman the way he’s raking right now? Over his last 34 games, Bregman has a .414 AVG, .497 OBP, .781 SLG and 1.278 OPS. Those are video game-like numbers and it’s very possible that this is the best hitter in baseball right now. What adds to his intrigue here is that he faces Brett Anderson, who’s 1.31 WHIP and 14 percent K rate spells disaster against a right-heavy lineup like this. Bregman has been obliterating lefties this season too, accumulating a .686 SLG and 1.103 OPS against them.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Austin Meadows, TB at TEX ($3,800) 

With Tampa projected for about six runs, we have to like their best hitter. The reason they have such a high projection is because they get to hit in Globe Life Park, which ranks as the second-best hitting park in the league. That’s bad news for Ariel Jurado and his 5.40 ERA and 1.46 WHIP, as he’ll struggle to get through this potent lineup. Meadows is definitely my favorite of the bunch, with the outfielder totaling a .385 OBP, .579 SLG and .964 OPS against righties while recording 90 percent of his steals against them. Meadows happens to be feeling it right now too, hitting .354 over his last 20 games while posting a 1.172 OPS.

Franmil Reyes, CLE at LAA ($3,100) 

Reyes got off to a terrible start with the Indians but he’s really starting to find his swing. A .270 ISO and .513 SLG for the season shows the sort of power potential this dude provides, as he actually has five doubles and five homers over his last 17 games in total. That’s why he has a .414 OBP and 1.064 OPS in that span, finding himself in the cleanup spot for Cleveland. The icing on the cake is that he gets the platoon advantage against Dillon Peters and his 4.45 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Since being called up last year, Reyes has a .379 OBP, .546 SLG and .925 OPS against left-handers.

Chris Taylor, LAD at BAL ($2,800) 

We already discussed why we like the Dodgers in the Turner write-up, as these guys should abuse John Means. The 5.51 xFIP is obviously a terrible mark and it has Los Angeles projected for about six runs. Taylor is actually one of their best right-handed hitters, which is evident by his .350 OBP, .544 SLG and .894 OPS against left-handed pitchers since 2017. He’s been feeling it recently too, hitting .336 over his last 38 games en route to a .999 OPS.
