FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Jose Berrios, MIN vs. KC ($9,400) 

Berrios hasn’t quite been the same pitcher he was in the first half but it’s lowered his price to this enticing number. We’re still talking about a guy with a 3.58 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Most importantly, he’s scored at least 35 FanDuel points in 15 outings this season while also throwing at least 6.2 innings in the same amount of starts. He appears to have captured that form recently, throwing at least seven innings in back-to-back starts while averaging 46.5 FanDuel points per game in that span. Facing a 28th-ranked Royals offense is the icing on the cake, with Berrios entering this matchup as a –320 favorite.

Ivan Nova, CWS at DET ($6,000) 

We always have to consider pitchers against the Tigers, particularly someone as hot as Nova. Let’s start with that matchup, as he faces a Detroit club who ranks dead-last in runs scored, OBP, OPS, wOBA, K rate and xwOBA. That’s scary against someone who’s really hitting their stride recently, with Nova pitching to a 3.12 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over his last 12 starts. That’s really all you can ask for from someone this cheap, especially in such a tasty matchup.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Eric Thames – 1B, MIL vs. PIT ($2,800) 

Thames has been fantastic against right-handers throughout his career and it really doesn’t make sense why FanDuel is keeping his price below $3,000. Dating back to 2017, Thames has a .355 OBP, .523 SLG and .878 OPS with the platoon advantage in his favor. That’s all you can ask for from a player this cheap, particularly against a rookie with a 9.00 ERA.

Luis Arraez – 2B, MIN vs. KC ($2,600) 

This is yet another price that I can't understand. Arraez has done nothing but rake since getting called up, which is evident by his .346 AVG and .858 OPS. He’s actually been even better against righties, amassing a .415 OBP, .495 SLG and .910 OPS against them this season. We’re really not worried about Glenn Sparkman and his 6.02 ERA and 1.50 WHIP either.

Matt Chapman – 3B, OAK vs. TEX ($3,600) 

Chapman has been making minced meat of lefties all season long and this is yet another spot where we want to use him. For the year, Chapman has a .543 SLG and .883 OPS with the platoon advantage in his favor. This happens to be a weak lefty too, with the Rangers sending out Brock Burke and his 5.19 ERA and 1.31 WHIP.

Carlos Correa – SS, HOU vs. LAA ($3,800) 

Correa just hit two dingers on Friday night and it appears that he’s back to full health. This is a guy who absolutely destroys baseballs when he is healthy, generating a .279 AVG, .560 SLG and .918 OPS for the year. Those are brilliant numbers and we absolutely love his .934 OPS against lefties since the beginning of 2017. This is not a southpaw we’re concerned with either, with Pablo Sandoval pitching to a 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Kyle Schwarber, CHC vs. STL ($3,700) 

Schwarber has always been one of the most talented hitters in baseball and his recent form shows just how special he can be. Over his last 42 games played, Schwarber has a .354 OBP, .643 SLG and .997 OPS. That’s why he’s now in the heart of the Cubs order and he’s typically much better against right-handers. Dakota Hudson’s 4.99 FIP and 1.39 WHIP makes him a guy who’s due for some negative regression too.

Jordan Luplow, CLE vs. PHI ($2,700) 

Luplow has been killing left-handers all season long and it’s time for people to start taking notice of these absurd splits. Against southpaws, Luplow has a .322 AVG, .437 OBP, .729 SLG and 1.165 OPS. Those are literally Hall-of-Fame numbers and it’s a major reason why he typically bats cleanup in these circumstances. Jason Vargas is not a lefty we need to fear either, pitching to a 4.48 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.
