MLB DFS Top Hitters for Draftkings and Fanduel Lineups 9/12/23
When it comes to MLB DFS, having a lineup filled with top hitters is the key to success. In this article, we’ll analyze some of the top hitters for Tuesday, September 12, 2023, focusing on players who can give your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups the edge you need to come out on top.
Cody Bellinger – OF, LAD vs. Chris Flexen ($4,600 DK, $4,500 FD)
Cody Bellinger has been a force to be reckoned with this season. In 483 plate appearances, he’s smashed 25 homers, stolen 20 bases, maintained a solid .360 OBP, and boasts a .233 ISO and a 142 wRC+. The numbers speak for themselves, making him a coveted pick for many DFS enthusiasts.
Bellinger’s price tag at $4,600 might seem a bit high, but his .360 wOBA against righties is the best on his team. He’s also a perfect 2-for-2 against Chris Flexen. While you may not want to go all-in on a full Dodgers stack, consider adding Bellinger to your lineup as a valuable asset.
Davis Schneider – 2B, TOR vs. Max Scherzer ($5,100 DK, $4,000 FD)
The Toronto Blue Jays are up against the formidable Max Scherzer, and one player you should keep a close eye on is rookie Davis Schneider. Schneider has been tearing it up this season, slashing .378/.500/.711 against righties and .364/.500/.779 overall.
His home performance is particularly impressive, with a batting average of .394, an OBP of .524, and a slugging percentage of .848 in 11 games, including three home runs and eight RBIs. This rookie sensation is making a strong case for AL Rookie of the Year, and with stats like these, it’s easy to see why.
Brandon Nimmo – OF, NYM vs. TBA ($4,200 DK, $3,800 FD)
Brandon Nimmo has been a consistent performer against right-handed pitchers this season. With 20 homers, a .362 OBP, .226 ISO, and a 134 wRC+ in 407 plate appearances, Nimmo is a reliable option for your DFS lineup.
While his opponent pitcher is still to be announced (TBA), Nimmo’s ability to deliver against righties makes him a strong choice for your roster on any given day.
Mitch Garver – C, TEX vs. Hyun Jin Ryu ($4,300 DK, $3,500 FD)
Mitch Garver, a right-handed batter, is set to face lefty Hyun Jin Ryu. Garver has been having a stellar season, slashing .283/.391/.536. He particularly shines against left-handed pitchers, with a batting average of .345, an OBP of .507, and a slugging percentage of .455, including 19 hits, six doubles, and seven RBIs.
Ryu, on the other hand, has struggled against right-handed batters, allowing .235/.264/.422. This makes Garver a solid choice to anchor your Texas Rangers stack, especially when playing at home against Ryu.
Seiya Suzuki – OF, CHC vs. Chris Flexen ($4,800 DK, $4,200 FD)
Seiya Suzuki has been a standout performer against righties this season, clocking in with 14 homers, a .345 OBP, .209 ISO, and a 123 wRC+ in 362 plate appearances. With such impressive stats, he’s certainly worth considering for your DFS lineup.
Chas McCormick – OF, HOU vs. JP Sears ($4,500 DK, $3,500 FD)
The Houston Astros are up against lefty JP Sears, who, despite his 4.51 ERA, carries a 5.14 xFIP, suggesting he might be due for a rough outing. Chas McCormick has been a key contributor for the Astros this season, slashing .285/.365/.516 with 20 home runs and 63 RBIs.
Against left-handed pitchers, McCormick has been particularly deadly, boasting a batting average of .348, an OBP of .411, and a slugging percentage of .661, along with nine home runs and 21 RBIs. Given Sears’ performance metrics, McCormick presents excellent value for your DFS lineup.
DJ Stewart – OF, BAL vs. TBA ($4,000 DK, $3,500 FD)
DJ Stewart has been delivering against righties this season with 10 homers, a .337 OBP, a robust .389 ISO, and an impressive 170 wRC+ in 99 plate appearances. Although the opposing pitcher is yet to be announced (TBA), Stewart’s ability to produce against right-handed pitchers makes him a candidate for your lineup.
Ian Happ – OF, CHC vs. Chris Flexen ($5,100 DK, $3,600 FD)
Ian Happ, a switch-hitting sensation, is facing Chris Flexen at Coors Field. Happ has been a bit cold in his recent games, but for the season, he’s posted solid numbers with a .240/.356/.412 slash line, 17 home runs, and 72 RBIs.
Against righties, Happ maintains a .251/.376/.433 line. With the Cubs/Rockies game projected to be high-scoring, Happ has an excellent opportunity to shine and boost his stats.
Brett Baty – 3B, NYM vs. TBA ($4,100 DK, $3,700 FD)
Brett Baty has shown his prowess against righties in his career, hitting seven homers with a .336 OBP, .225 ISO, and a 128 wRC+. Although the opposing pitcher is yet to be announced (TBA), Baty’s history against righties makes him a strong contender for your lineup.
Patrick Wisdom – 3B, CHC vs. Chris Flexen ($4,000 DK, $3,200 FD)
The Cubs’ Patrick Wisdom is facing right-hander Chris Flexen, who has been struggling recently. Wisdom has seen an uptick in his numbers post-All-Star break, slashing .245/.321/.673 with seven home runs and 12 RBIs.
Flexen’s 6.78 FIP and 5.10 xFIP suggest that he’s been giving up plenty of scoring opportunities. Wisdom’s power combined with Flexen’s struggles makes him a valuable addition to your DFS stack, especially when targeting the Coors game.
Ronny Mauricio – SS, NYM vs. TBA ($4,300 DK, $3,900 FD)
Ronny Mauricio has had an impressive season against righties, racking up 20 homers with a solid .867 OPS in 438 plate appearances. Although the opposing pitcher is yet to be announced (TBA), Mauricio’s consistent performance against right-handed pitchers makes him a strong choice for your lineup.
Mike Yastrzemski – OF, SF vs. Cal Quantrill ($3,400 DK, $2,900 FD)
San Francisco is set to face right-hander Cal Quantrill, who carries a 5.44 ERA and a 5.44 xFIP. The Giants’ projected run total for the night is nearly five, and Mike Yastrzemski has been on fire recently, with a .625/.667/.1.25 slash line in his last five games, including four doubles, two home runs, and five RBIs.
Over the last 30 days, the Giants have improved significantly with a .173 ISO and a 126 wRC+. Against right-handed pitchers, Yastrzemski shines with a .274/.366/.533 line, featuring 11 home runs and 29 RBIs.
