Thursday brings another fun night of DFS with plenty of intriguing games on the schedule. There is no shortage of top-tier pitchers available, so this might be a good day to pay up at the position. After pouring through the matchups, here are some of the better players to consider. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Mike Soroka vs. Miami Marlins
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $9,300
DraftKings = $10,000

After Julio Teheran shut down the Marlins yet again Wednesday, it’s Soroka’s turn to try and assert his dominance over one of the weakest lineups in baseball. He’s thrived against them across three previous starts, giving up just three runs (one earned) over 22 innings. While his 19.7 percent strikeout rate does limit his upside, this matchup might be too good to pass up.

Ryan Yarbrough vs. Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $9,000
DraftKings = $9,300

I’m not high on any of the really cheap pitching options for this slate. Yarbrough is a tad less expensive than Soroka, but you’ll still have to add in a few cheap bats if you want to squeeze him into your entry. His return to the starting rotation has gone really well with him pitching 15 shutout innings over his last two outings. Look for him to keep things rolling against the Orioles, who he has recorded nine strikeouts against and allowed just two runs across 9.2 innings this season.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Tyler Flowers vs. Sandy Alcantara, Miami Marlins
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $2,300
DraftKings = $3,400

With Brian McCann (knee) on the IL, Flowers takes over as the starting catcher for the Braves. His 34 percent strikeout rate is certainly alarming, although his .190 ISO is his highest mark since 2012. Alcantara has a mediocre 4.92 FIP to go along with a 1.42 WHIP, making Flowers an appealing cheap options for a Braves stack or a one-off if you want to save money at catcher.

Others to consider: Will Smith

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Max Muncy vs. Jacob Waguespack, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Dodger Stadium
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $5,200

The Dodgers’ lineup couldn’t take advantage of the weak Blue Jays’ pitching staff Wednesday, but they still came away with the victory thanks to Muncy’s walk-off home run. He’s now gone deep in five straight games, raising his ISO to .281 for the season. While pricey, he can be a DFS difference-maker when he’s on a tear like this.

Others to consider: Jose Abreu and Howie Kendrick

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Nick Solak vs. Ross Detwiler, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $2,400
DraftKings = $3,600

As we try to target some cheaper options so you can pay up at pitcher, Solak checks in as a great target at second base. He hit exceptionally well after joining the Rangers’ Triple-A squad, recording a .305 ISO and a .421 wOBA over 30 games. He’s carried that success into the big leagues, hitting 4-for-11 with a home run and two doubles since being recalled. Detwiler checks into this game with a 7.33 FIP, so to say that he has struggled would be an understatement.

Others to consider: Jose Altuve and Ozzie Albies

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Anthony Rendon vs. Steven Brault, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,600

The Nationals’ lineup is firing on all cylinders right now. Rendon has been one of the key reasons for their success, hitting 21-for-54 (.389) with three home runs and four doubles across his last 12 games. He continues to have success against left-handed pitchers, posting a .412 wOBA against them for the season, overall. Brault is an underwhelming southpaw with his 1.42 WHIP, leaving Rendon with a tremendously high ceiling.

Others to consider: Yoan Moncada and Justin Turner

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Tim Anderson vs. Ariel Jurado, Texas Rangers
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,800

Anderson enters this contest on one heck of an eight-game hitting streak. He has seven multi-hit performances during that stretch, leaving him 17-for-35 (.486) with a home run and five doubles. While he doesn’t walk much, he has cut down on his strikeout rate and posted an excellent .332 batting average. Jurado has an inflated 1.51 WHIP, leaving Anderson with an excellent opportunity to extend his hitting streak.

Others to consider: Corey Seager and Elvis Andrus

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/22/19

Ronald Acuna Jr. vs. Sandy Alcantara, Miami Marlins
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,900

Acuna will cost you a pretty penny on both sites, but he has one of the highest upsides of any player at any position. He’s already launched 36 home runs to go along with 29 stolen bases, scoring 106 runs in the process. He’s also stepped up with the Braves dealing with several injuries by hitting 23-for-66 (.348) with 10 home runs over his last 16 games.

Shin-Soo Choo vs. Ross Detwiler, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $4,800

Choo might not stand out as the best player to target on the Rangers since he won’t have the platoon advantage versus Detwiler. However, with Detwiler allowing a .350 wOBA to left-handed hitters, Choo could still provide value. He’s once again been one of the most consistent hitters on the Rangers and has already hit 20 home runs, giving him a .202 ISO that is his highest mark since 2008.

Delino DeShields Jr. vs. Ross Detwiler, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $2,700
DraftKings = $4,200

Injuries have forced DeShields back into a prominent role for the Rangers and he’s doing his best to salvage his rough campaign by hitting 9-for-29 (.310) with two doubles and five steals across his last eight games. Don’t count on him for power numbers, but with how much Detwiler has struggled, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see DeShields on base a time or two in this contest. If that’s the case, he could provide plenty of value at this price with his speed.

Wednesday brings plenty of tough choices across the DFS landscape with 11 games on the schedule. In particular, there are a lot of viable pitching options. Let’s dig into the matchups and discuss some of the better players to target. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Patrick Corbin vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $10,300
DraftKings = $10,800

While Justin Verlander has the best matchup of the night against the Tigers, he’s going to eat up a significant portion of your budget. Another top-tier pitcher who will at least cost a little bit less is Corbin, who has had an excellent campaign with a 3.39 FIP and a 28.5 percent strikeout rate. He also has a juicy matchup against the Pirates, who have the worst wRC+ (73) against left-handed pitchers in baseball.

Julio Teheran vs. Miami Marlins
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $9,000
DraftKings = $8,000

Working our way even further down the price scale brings us to Teheran, who doesn’t exactly instill a lot of confidence with his 4.54 FIP and 1.34 WHIP. However, he has dominated the Marlins across four previous starts this season, allowing one run and recording 22 strikeouts over 25 innings. If you’re looking to spend more on hitters, Teheran is one of the top budget-friendly pitchers to target.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Will Smith vs. Wilmer Font, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Dodger Stadium
FanDuel = $3,800
DraftKings = $4,600

Smith’s career in the big leagues is off to an insane start with his .488 ISO. He’s also 10-for-26 (.385) with five home runs and two doubles during his current eight-game hitting streak. While he obviously won’t be able to sustain those type of power numbers, don’t expect this to be the game that he cools off considering the Blue Jays will be deploying their bullpen after Font opens. While they have some intriguing young hitters, their pitching staff is among the worst in baseball.

Others to consider: Christian Vazquez

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Sam Travis vs. Drew Smyly, Philadelphia Phillies
Stadium – Fenway Park
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,100

The Red Sox are likely going to be a popular stack against Smyly, who has given up 16 runs (14 earned) and six home runs over his last 15.2 innings. That’s really nothing new for him based on his 7.09 ERA and 6.92 FIP for the season, overall. Travis is 16-for-49 (.327) with a 1.016 OPS over his last 19 games, making him one of the top cheaper options to get some exposure to the Red Sox.

Others to consider: Anthony Rizzo and Max Muncy

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Joe Panik vs. Adam Plutko, Cleveland Indians
Stadium – Citi Field
FanDuel = $2,400
DraftKings = $3,300

If you want to load up on players on the Red Sox and Dodgers, you’ll need to take some chances on cheap players from other teams to make them work within your budget. Panik might be one of those cheap players to consider in tournament play. He’s been thrust into a prominent role for the Mets with Robinson Cano (hamstring) and Jeff McNeil (hamstring) on the IL. So far, so good, considering he is 9-for-27 (.333) with nine runs scored across nine games with the team.

Others to consider: Jose Altuve and Whit Merrifield

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Hunter Dozier vs. Aaron Brooks, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $4,100
DraftKings = $4,900

For those looking to fade the Red Sox and Dodgers, the Royals also present a great opportunity to provide production. Brooks hasn’t been able to slow down opposing lineups at all, allowing 28 runs (27 earned) and seven home runs over his last 22 innings. Dozier is certainly one of the most dangerous hitters on the Royals with his .377 wOBA and .266 ISO.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Justin Turner

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

Corey Seager vs. Wilmer Font, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Dodger Stadium
FanDuel = $3,400
DraftKings = $4,200

When healthy, Seager has the potential to provide significant production. He’s been doing just that lately, hitting 11-for-32 (.344) with three home runs and six doubles over his last eight games. He only struck out two times during that stretch, helping lower his strikeout rate for the season to 18 percent. At his reasonable price on both sites, he makes a lot of sense for a Dodgers stack.

Others to consider: Trea Turner and Nicky Lopez

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/21/19

J.D. Martinez vs. Drew Smyly, Philadelphia Phillies
Stadium – Fenway Park
FanDuel = $4,200
DraftKings = $5,100

While Martinez hasn’t been as prolific as he was during his first season with the Red Sox, it’s hard to complain about a guy with a .250 ISO and a .387 wOBA. He’s launched 28 home runs already, giving him a shot at reaching 40 long balls for the third straight year. Don’t be surprised if he goes yard in this matchup considering he has a 232 wRC+ versus left-handed pitchers.

Mark Canha vs. J.A. Happ, New York Yankees
Stadium – Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,200

This is a big series for the A’s as they try and fight their way to a Wild Card spot. They emerged victorious Tuesday in part due to Canha hitting a home run. He’s stepped up for them in a major way down the stretch, hitting 20-for-57 (.351) with two home runs and two doubles over his last 15 games. He has followed up his .390 wOBA against left-handed pitchers in 2018 with a .360 wOBA against them this season, making him an excellent mid-tier option with Happ on the mound.

Brett Phillips vs. Aaron Brooks, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $2,700
DraftKings = $3,600

Phillips once again showed his combination of speed and power at Triple-A this season, recording 18 home runs and 22 steals. With the Royals well out of reach for a playoff spot, they’ll give him a chance to prove himself in the majors down the stretch. Considering how poorly Brooks has pitched, Phillips is a viable target to at least consider in tournament play.

All 30 teams will be in action Tuesday, leaving us with plenty of players to pick from in DFS.

Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Aaron Sanchez vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $8,500
DraftKings = $6,800

We have two very contrasting prices for Sanchez here. He’s likely going to be very popular at his price in DraftKings, but he also makes sense on FanDuel considering his favorable matchup against the Tigers. While he was hit hard in his last outing, it came against an A’s team that has significantly more talent. Before that, he had allowed one run across 11 innings versus two bad lineups in the Orioles and Mariners. Look for him to exploit another weak opponent.

Cole Hamels vs. San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Wrigley Field
FanDuel = $7,300
DraftKings = $7,800

If you’re playing in tournament play on FanDuel, Hamels makes for a great option. He’s been hit hard in his last two starts, allowing 13 runs (12 earned) over five innings. However, he has a 3.69 ERA and a 3.72 WHIP for the season despite those poor outings. Facing the Giants is almost as enticing as going up against the Tigers, especially since the Giants have an 82 wRC+ against lefties. Even though his strikeout upside isn’t great, Hamels still has an excellent chance to provide value.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Carson Kelly vs. Kyle Freeland, Colorado Rockies
Stadium – Chase Field
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,100

The Diamondbacks figure to be one of the most popular stacks of the night with Freeland on the mound. He has ugly stats pretty much across the board, including a 6.13 FIP and a 1.61 WHIP. Kelly has shown plenty of power with his .283 ISO and has crushed lefties to the tune of a 192 wRC+.

Others to consider: Will Smith

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Matt Adams vs. Chris Archer, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,000

The Nationals are as hot as it gets right now, scoring at least 13 runs in four of their last five games. Adams has been right in the thick of the production, compiling six hits and two home runs over their last two contests. With Archer posting a 5.07 FIP and a 1.41 WHIP, Adams is a cost-effective option to target who also provides power upside.

Others to consider: Freddie Freeman and Yuli Gurriel

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Ketel Marte vs. Kyle Freeland, Colorado Rockies
Stadium – Chase Field
FanDuel = $4,200
DraftKings = $5,400

After sitting out three of the four previous games, Marte returned in style Monday with a home run. He’s been one of the more pleasant offensive surprises this season, recording a .394 wOBA and a 141 wRC+. He’s been even better with a 154 wRC+ against southpaws, leaving him as one of the best options on the slate against the underwhelming Freeland.

Others to consider: Jose Altuve and Austin Nola

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

David Fletcher vs. Brock Burke, Texas Rangers
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,100

With the Rangers short on quality arms, they’ll take a chance on Burke in this outing against the Angels. He’s only made two appearances in his career above Double-A, so this is a big jump for the young lefty. Facing a dangerous Angels’ lineup at hitter-friendly Globe Life Park won’t make his job any easier. Fletcher can be had at a reasonable price on both sites and enters this contest having gone 14-for-39 (.359) with four doubles over his last nine games.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Anthony Rendon

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Trea Turner vs. Chris Archer, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $4,100
DraftKings = $5,100

Turner has been a monster for the Nationals down the stretch, hitting 22-for-63 (.349) with four home runs and four steals over his last 15 games. When healthy, his upside is off the charts. Given how poorly Archer has pitched and how hot the Nationals’ lineup is, Turner is in a prime spot for another productive stat line.

Others to consider: Jean Segura and Corey Seager

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Juan Soto vs. Chris Archer, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $5,100

Soto makes this list for the second straight day after coming through yesterday, hitting 4-for-4 with two doubles and four runs scored. While he might not grab as many headlines as some of the other up and coming young players in the league, he’s as talented as any of them with his ability to hit for power and a high average. If you are rolling with the Nationals once again, he should be at the center of the stack.

Brain Anderson vs. Dallas Keuchel, Atlanta Braves
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,300

The last time we saw Keuchel take the mound against the Marlins, he was torched for eight runs over 3.2 innings. Anderson hit two home runs off of him in that contest and has a career-high 20 for the season, overall. Considering Keuchel has allowed 1.5 HR/9 since joining the Braves, taking a chance on Anderson getting to him again could prove to be profitable.

Scott Heineman vs. Jaime Barria, Los Angeles Angels
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $2,000
DraftKings = $3,300

The Rangers are running out of healthy players. Joey Gallo (wrist) is still on the IL and both Danny Santana and Nomar Mazara left Monday’s contest with injuries. That should open up more playing time for Heineman, who had racked up a .407 wOBA at Triple-A. With how little he costs on both sites, he makes for a great tournament play option if you need to save some money in your outfield.

Others to consider: Adam Eaton and Justin Upton

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/2019

Hitting could reign supreme considering the group of pitchers set to take the mound across baseball Monday. With that being said, there are still a few pitchers in favorable spots to provide value. The post MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/2019 appeared first on Lineup...

Hitting could reign supreme considering the group of pitchers set to take the mound across baseball Monday. With that being said, there are still a few pitchers in favorable spots to provide value. Here are some of the top players to consider when working your way through the options. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Wade Miley vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $9,000
DraftKings = $11,200

This is not the kind of price you like to see for Miley considering his 19.9 percent strikeout rate. However, he’s hard to pass up in cash contests considering this matchup. The Tigers have scored the fewest runs in baseball and if Miley is going to ever have a start where he generates more strikeouts than normal, this is it considering the Tigers have also struck out the third-most times. Really, it’s just a matter of if you can fit enough quality hitters into your lineup working around Miley’s price tag.

Kyle Gibson vs. Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Target Field
FanDuel = $7,400
DraftKings = $10,100

Gibson is a bit cheaper on DraftKings, but his price on FanDuel really makes him appealing. The White Sox have a few imposing bats, but they have still scored the third-fewest runs. In two previous meetings with them this season, Gibson has allowed two runs and recorded 18 strikeouts across 13 innings. Look for him to have plenty of success this time around, as well.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Kurt Suzuki vs. Trevor Williams, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $2,600
DraftKings = $4,200

The Nationals have scored at least 14 runs in three of their last four games, so to say they are firing on all cylinders right now would be an understatement. They have another excellent opportunity to be productive against Williams, who has posted a 7.28 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP across his last nine starts. If you’re looking to get some cheap exposure to them, Suzuki should be on your radar. He’s 12-for-35 (.343) with two home runs and two doubles over his last eight games.

Others to consider: Yasmani Grandal

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Christian Walker vs. Chi Chi Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
Stadium – Chase Field
FanDuel = $3,400
DraftKings = $4,100

While it would be even better if this game was being played at Coors Field, the Diamondbacks are still in a great spot against Gonzalez and his 6.91 FIP. He has a 1.52 WHIP for his career, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see his struggles continue in this contest. Even though he doesn’t have the platoon advantage here, Walker actually has slightly better numbers versus right-handed pitchers (.348 wOBA) than he does lefties (.341 wOBA).

Others to consider: Trey Mancini and Yuli Gurriel

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Josh Rojas vs. Chi Chi Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies
Stadium – Chase Field
FanDuel = $2,500
DraftKings = $3,100

Rojas provided excellent production at Triple-A for the Astros earlier this season, recording a .276 ISO and a .410 wOBA. He also chipped in 19 steals, so he can provide value in multiple areas. He’s quickly worked his way up to the majors now that he’s a member of the Diamondbacks, making him a cheaper option to at least consider in tournament play. Of note, he is only eligible at second base on FanDuel since he is listed as an outfielder on DraftKings.

Others to consider: Jose Altuve and Brian Dozier

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Mike Moustakas vs. Dakota Hudson, St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – Busch Stadium
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $4,000

Moustakas certainly enjoyed his weekend against the Nationals, racking up six hits and three home runs. He’s been everything the Brewers could have hoped for in his first full season with the team, recording a .265 ISO and a .355 wOBA. Hudson has allowed a .387 wOBA versus left-handed hitters, leaving Moustakas with significant upside. His price isn’t bad on FanDuel, but he’s especially appealing based on his price on DraftKings.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Anthony Rendon

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Carlos Correa vs. Edwin Jackson, Houston Astros
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $5,000

I’m not shying away from attacking Jackson just because he’s had two good starts since joining the Tigers. Don’t forget, they came against two bad teams in the Royals and Mariners. Facing the Astros is an entirely different animal. Correa checks into this matchup with a career-high .279 ISO, which is noteworthy since Jackson has allowed 3.4 HR/9.

Others to consider: Jonathan Villar and David Fletcher

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/19/19

Juan Soto vs. Trevor Williams, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $5,200

Soto has certainly proven that his stellar rookie campaign was no fluke. Not only is his wOBA even higher at .394, but he’s provided more production on the base paths with 12 stolen bases. Oh yeah, and he’s slugging .553. Left-handed hitters have a .384 wOBA versus Williams, making Soto a hitter to build your entry around.

Adam Eaton vs. Trevor Williams, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $3,500
DraftKings = $4,600

Eaton doesn’t have nearly the upside that Soto does, but with how much Williams has struggled against lefties, he is also someone to target. It helps that he’s swinging a hot bat after going 17-for-40 (.425) with three home runs and three doubles over his last 10 games.

Josh Reddick vs. Edwin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $2,400
DraftKings = $3,200

If you’re looking for a really cheap hitter to include in an Astros stack, rolling with Reddick might not be a crazy idea. Yes, he’s mired in a 15-for-87 (.172) slump over his last 25 games. Still, he can be a tough out with his 11.3 percent strikeout rate. With how poorly Jackson has pitched this season, this is as good of a matchup as any for Reddick to get back on track.

Others to consider: Aristides Aquino and Yordan Alvarez

With only two early start times Thursday, we are left with eight games to choose from for the main evening slate in DFS. There aren’t many high-end pitchers available, but there are a few second-tier options who could thrive. Let’s discuss those, as well as some hitters to target.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Sonny Gray vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – Great American Ball Park
FanDuel = $9,800
DraftKings = $9,100

The Reds pounced on a buy-low opportunity with Gray after he had a terrible season for the Yankees in 2018. The move has done wonders for his value since he’s recorded a 3.10 ERA and a 3.46 FIP. One of his biggest areas of improvement is in the strikeout department with him now sporting a 27.9 percent strikeout rate. The Cardinals have struggled to the tune of a 87 wRC+ versus right-handed pitchers, making Gray one of the top pitching targets to consider.

Alex Young vs. San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Chase Field
FanDuel = $7,500
DraftKings = $8,100

Young did not put up good numbers at Triple-A, but he’s surprisingly been able to record a 3.32 ERA with the Diamondbacks. Even though his 4.48 FIP indicates there might be some regression on the horizon, his 1.00 WHIP is very impressive. The Giants are towards the bottom of baseball in most major offensive categories, leaving Young as a cheap option with some appeal in tournament play.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Mitch Garver vs. Pedro Payano, Texas Rangers
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $3,300
DraftKings = $5,300

The Twins figure to be a popular team to stack with Payano on the mound since he has a 1.71 WHIP through his first five appearances. While Garver does have better numbers against left-handed pitchers, he’s not exactly struggling with a .354 wOBA against righties. Since this won’t be the busiest of slates, Garver stands out as one of the top catchers to pursue, although his price on DraftKings is awfully high.

Others to consider: Jonathan Lucroy

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Jose Abreu vs. Andrew Heaney, Los Angeles Angels
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $3,900

The Angels desperately needed help in their starting rotation, so it was a relief to get Heaney back over the weekend. He was only able to throw 3.2 innings while being on a limited pitch count, but he should be able to go deeper in this game if he is effective. His problem this season has been the long ball, allowing 1.6 HR/9. That could be an issue for him against the powerful Abreu, who also has a 151 wRC+ against left-handed pitchers.

Others to consider: Christian Walker and Joey Votto

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Luis Arraez vs. Pedro Payano, Texas Rangers
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,300

Arraez has quietly become an important member of the Twins. He’s hit his way into a starting job by going 23-for-73 (.315) with 15 runs scored across his last 20 contests. His limited power puts a damper on his upside, but he’s reasonably priced on both sites for this matchup against Payano, who has a bloated 1.71 WHIP through his first five appearances with the Rangers.

Others to consider: Ketel Marte and Gleyber Torres

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Eugenio Suarez vs. Michael Wacha, St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – Great American Ball Park
FanDuel = $3,900
DraftKings = $4,600

The Reds have a favorable matchup here against Wacha, who has a 6.10 FIP and has allowed 2.1 HR/9. His struggles with the long ball are a bit surprising since he has only allowed 1.0 HR/9 for his career, so there’s a chance some of his issues could be due to the different baseballs. Regardless, this is a great spot for Suarez, who is having the best power season of his career with a .274 ISO.

Others to consider: Eduardo Escobar and Miguel Sano

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Jose Iglesias vs. Michael Wacha, St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – Great American Ball Park
FanDuel = $2,800
DraftKings = $4,000

While Iglesias might not be the biggest of names, he shouldn’t be ignored, especially for those deploying a Reds stack. He’s stepped up with the Reds trying to keep their playoff hopes alive, hitting 17-for-47 (.362) with three home runs and four doubles across his last 12 games. While he doesn’t have the platoon advantage here, Wacha has allowed a .403 wOBA versus righties this season.

Others to consider: Javier Baez and Jorge Polanco

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/15/19

Nicholas Castellanos vs. Drew Smyly, Philadelphia Phillies
Stadium – Citizens Bank Park
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $4,700

Castellanos is arguably one of the happiest players who was traded at the deadline. He wasn’t pleased with his home park in Detroit and the way it limited his power numbers. Now a member of the Cubs, he’s quickly made a great first impression by hitting 20-for-54 (.370) with five home runs and six doubles. He also has a 194 wRC+ against left-handed pitchers this year, making him one of the top outfielders to target.

Shohei Ohtani vs. Reynaldo Lopez, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $3,500
DraftKings = $4,600

Ohtani is starting to show signs of breaking out of his slump, hitting 10-for-23 (.435) with two doubles and a triple across his last five games. When he’s on top of his game, he can be a difference-maker in DFS. He has been much better at home, leaving him with a 143 wRC+ there compared to a 116 wRC+ on the road. Even though Lopez has had some encouraging starts of late, he has a 4.98 FIP for the season, so Ohtani has the potential for another productive evening.

Jesse Winker vs. Michael Wacha, St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – Great American Ball Park
FanDuel = $2,900
DraftKings =$4,100

Known for hitting for a high average throughout his time in the minors, Winker is batting just .269 this season. However, what he’s lacking in that area he’s helped make up for with 16 home runs. With the way Wacha has been struggling, and factoring in Winker’s .370 wOBA versus right-handed pitchers, rolling with him in tournament play is a viable strategy.

Others to consider: Aristides Aquino and Eddie Rosario

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/2019

The majority of Wednesday's slate consists of early start times, so we don't have as many options to choose from as usual for the main evening slate in DFS. There are still some appealing pitchers, but finding viable hitters might be a bit more difficult. Don't worry, we've got you covered.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Clayton Kershaw vs. Miami Marlins
Stadium – Marlins Park
FanDuel = $12,000
DraftKings = $11,800

Kershaw stands out as the top pitcher to target. It doesn’t get much better than a matchup against the Marlins. While they have some promising young pitchers, their lineup is still very much in the early stages of the rebuilding process. The last time we saw Kershaw take on the Marlins, he recorded 10 strikeouts over six shutout innings. He’ll certainly do a number on your budget, but he has the potential to be a difference-maker during such a small slate.

Marco Gonzales vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $7,700
DratfKings = $8,700

The Tigers have been neck and neck with the Marlins this season in terms of offensive futility. Not only do they struggle to score runs, but they’ve struck out the fourth-most times in baseball. In Gonzales’ previous matchup against them, he allowed one run and recorded eight strikeouts over seven impressive innings. He’s allowed two earned runs or fewer in eight of his last 11 starts, overall, making him arguably the top pitching target if you want to fade Kershaw.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Will Smith vs. Elieser Hernandez, Miami Marlins
Stadium – Marlins Park
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,600

Smith has made his mark with the Dodgers, recording an incredible .493 ISO through his first 23 games. While Marlins Park is a more pitcher-friendly environment, that didn’t stop Smith from going deep twice Tuesday. Hernandez has struggled with his 5.67 FIP, leaving Smith with the potential for another impressive day at the plate.

Others to consider: Omar Narvaez

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Pete Alonso vs. Dallas Keuchel, Atlanta Braves
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $4,100
DraftKings = $5,500

Alonso has not disappointed in his first season in the big leagues, posting a .331 ISO. He’s also torched left-handed pitchers to the tune of a 154 wRC+, making him an intriguing option against Keuchel. After allowing three home runs in his last outing against the Marlins, Keuchel has now given up 11 long balls across 59.2 innings.

Others to consider: Daniel Vogelbach and Josh Bell

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Ozzie Albies vs. Steven Matz, New York Mets
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $3,700
DraftKings = $5,200

Matz has some pretty extreme splits. While he has a 2.98 FIP and a 1.12 WHIP at Citi Field, he has a 6.43 FIP and a 1.67 WHIP on the road. He’ll certainly face a tough foe in the Braves, who have scored the sixth-most runs in baseball. Albies has a 190 wRC+ against southpaws, making him one of the top players on the Braves to target.

Others to consider: Max Muncy and Niko Goodrum

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Jose Osuna vs. Dillon Peters, Los Angeles Angels
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $2,600
DraftKings = $4,600

On the surface, Peters looks like he has pitched well with his 3.45 ERA. However, he has a 5.26 FIP and a 1.34 WHIP, so his supporting numbers tell a very different story. The Pirates are still a viable stack to pursue with Osuna presenting an intriguing option, especially at his price on FanDuel. He’s on a hot streak right now, hitting 17-for-44 (.386) with three home runs and seven doubles over his last 15 games. He also has a .348 wOBA against lefties for the season, overall.

Others to consider: Kyle Seager and Todd Frazier

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Kevin Newman vs. Dillon Peters, Los Angeles Angels
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,200

Continuing to attack this matchup against Peters brings us to Newman. Generally speaking, his .325 wOBA and 100 wRC+ are nothing to write home about. Still, he’s a tough out based on his 12.3 percent strikeout rate. He won’t cost much on either site, making him someone to at least consider in tournament play.

Others to consider: Corey Seager and J.P. Crawford

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 8/14/19

Ronald Acuna Jr. vs. Steven Matz, New York Mets
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $4,500
DraftKings = $5,700

There are few players in baseball with the type of upside that Acuna has. He’s a terror both at the plate and on the base paths, hitting 36-for-109 (.330) with 11 home runs and 12 stolen bases across his last 25 games. With Matz’s struggles on the road already detailed, Acuna is someone to build your entry around.

Domingo Santana vs. Edwin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $3,300
DraftKings = $4,400

Santana is slumping hard right now, hitting 3-for-30 (.100) over his last 10 games. Even with that poor stretch, he still has shown plenty of power with 21 home runs. Jackson has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball and has allowed 3.4 HR/9, so this could be just the matchup that Santana needs to get back on track.

J.D. Davis vs. Dallas Keuchel, Atlanta Braves
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,900

With Dominic Smith (foot) on the IL, Davis has a clear path to playing time. He hasn’t let the opportunity go to waste, hitting 29-for-73 (.397) with five home runs and seven doubles over his last 23 games. Add in his .378 wOBA against lefties and he stands out as one of the best players to consider for a Mets stack, especially at his reasonable price on FanDuel.

Others to consider: Cody Bellinger and Alex Gordon
