MLB DFS Preview for Draftkings, Fanduel lineups 9/28/23
Welcome to the MLB DFS Preview for DraftKings and FanDuel lineups on September 28, 2023. We’ll be your guide for tonight’s five-game slate. Now, let’s get started.
We always begin by checking out the weather, as it can have a significant impact on MLB DFS. Tonight, the Mets are hosting the Marlins at Citi Field, where we expect cooler temperatures in the low 60s and some wind blowing in – ideal conditions for pitchers. There’s also a chance of rain as the game progresses, so keep that in mind.
Now, let’s break down the top pitching options for tonight:
Jordan Montgomery: Montgomery is the most expensive pitcher, but he’s a better real-life pitcher than a fantasy one. His 21.4% strikeout rate is below average, and at this price point, we want more upside. While the matchup against Seattle is favorable, there are cheaper pitchers with higher strikeout potential.
Jesus Lazardo: Lazardo is a solid choice at this price. He boasts a 27.7% strikeout rate, better than Montgomery, and has a good matchup against the Mets, who have a league-average strikeout rate against lefties.
David Peterson: Peterson is an interesting option at a more affordable price. He has a 25.8% strikeout rate and faces the Marlins, who have their own struggles against lefties. His price allows for rostering expensive hitters.
Logan Gilbert: Gilbert has a 24.6% strikeout rate, a solid 3.79 SIERA, and a favorable matchup against Texas. He’s a good choice considering his price and strikeout potential.
Chris Bassett: Bassett faces the Yankees, who, despite recent offensive improvement, still have a high strikeout rate and a below-average WRC+. However, his price is a bit high for his strikeout potential.
Ultimately, the decision between these pitchers depends on your budget and risk tolerance. Lazardo and Peterson offer good value, while Gilbert could provide a balance between price and performance.
Top Hitters to Target
Now, let’s explore some top hitter options to consider for your lineups:
The Braves are a strong hitting team and are facing the Colorado Rockies. Here are some key players to consider:
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are in Coors Field tonight and they’ll be a popular choice. However, they come with high price tags:
Mookie Betts: Betts is one of the game’s elite hitters and can take advantage of the hitter-friendly environment.
Max Muncy: Muncy has power and can be a valuable addition to your lineup.
JD Martinez: Martinez has been hot since coming off the IL and could thrive in this matchup.
Toronto Blue Jays
Don’t overlook the Blue Jays, who face Luke Weaver and the D-backs. They offer some value options:
Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Guerrero has a high ISO and is a must-have in your lineup.
Dalton Varsho: Varsho provides value with his decent power potential.
Kevin Kiermaier: Kiermaier is another affordable option with pop in his bat.
Given the available matchups and player values, consider stacking the Braves and Dodgers. Both teams have significant offensive potential and are worth the investment. Additionally, mixing in some value picks from the Blue Jays can help you create a competitive lineup while staying within your salary cap.
