FanDuel DFS Pitcher

Justin Verlander - P, HOU vs LAA (FD - $12,200)

Verlander has been super consistent as of late with three or fewer earned runs in five straight starts while adding eight or more strikeouts in four of those starts. He is up against the Angels, who are simply just a bad team. They come in with an average 21% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitcher this season, but Verlander has posted 44 strikeouts in 33 innings vs the Angels this season.

Mike Foltynewicz - P, ATL vs PHI (FD - $9,400)

Folty is up against the Phillies, who come in with a 25% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is third worst in the league. He allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last nine starts. He does have two duds in those nine starts, with four and six earned runs, so not as safe as Verlander but the strikeout upside is there in this matchup.

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Luke Voit - 1B, NYY vs BAL (FD - $3,900)

Voit comes in with a .419 wOBA and a .303 ISO vs right-handed pitchers and has three home runs in his last four games. Tonight, he is facing off against David Hess, who is giving up 1.29 HR/9 to right-handed hitters this season, which should line up nicely in this favorable hitter's park.

Daniel Murphy - 2B, CHC @ CWS (FD - $3,000)

Murphy has a .365 wOBA and a .194 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and makes a solid play in all formats. He has two home runs in his last four games along with two-multi hit games in that span.

Matt Chapman - 3B, OAK vs MIN (FD - $4,000)

Chapman is facing off against a young and inexperienced pitcher for the Twins, Chase De Jong, who is giving up a .395 wOBA to righties this season. Chapman comes in with a super strong .386 wOBA and a .266 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, giving him plenty of home run upside.

Amed Rosario - SS, NYM @ WAS (FD - $2,900)

Rosario isn't that expensive tonight and has been leading off for the Mets recently. He is facing off against Tanner Roark, who has given up four or more earned runs in three of his last four starts and is giving up 1.14 HR/9 to righties this season.

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Joc Pederson - OF, LOS vs SDP (FD - $3,200)

Pederson jas a very solid .374 wOBA and a .288 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season, which should put him in a good spot, as he often leads off in this spot. He is facing off against Jacob Nix, who is giving up 1.93 HR/9 to lefties this season.

Tommy Pham - OF, TAM @ TOR (FD - $3,800)

Pham has three multi-hit games in a row and will continue to get a positive park shift since he is away from home and in Toronto. He also has two home run in his last three games and is facing off against Thomas Pannone, who is giving up 1.78 HR/9 to righties this season.
