MLB DFS Top Hitters for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups 9/15/23
In the ever-evolving world of MLB DFS, finding those top hitters for your Draftkings and Fanduel lineups can be the key to unlocking success. As we dive into the matchups for Friday, September 15, 2023, let’s explore some standout players who could make a significant impact on your fantasy baseball roster.
Yordan Alvarez – HOU
Yordan Alvarez has been a force to be reckoned with this season. He’s slugged an impressive 18 homers on the road against right-handed pitchers, boasting a remarkable .430 OBP, a staggering .374 ISO, and an outstanding 199 wRC+. Tonight, he faces right-hander Zack Greinke in Kansas City, and the numbers suggest that Alvarez is poised for success.
Versus righties, Alvarez is slashing .294/.423/.618, with 21 home runs and 53 RBI. Greinke, on the other hand, is having a challenging season with a 5.04 FIP, a low strikeout rate, and a tendency to allow home runs. Alvarez, with his .298/.411/.584 season stats and recent hot streak, is a must-have in your lineups, especially if you’re stacking Astros tonight.
Corey Seager – TEX
Corey Seager has been making waves with his performances, particularly against Lucas Giolito. In seven at-bats this season, Seager has managed a .286 batting average, one home run, and three RBI against Giolito. The Texas Rangers have been showing signs of resurgence, and Seager is a big part of that.
Batting .344/.406/.663 for the season and a scorching .500/.560/1.00 in his last five games, Seager is on fire. With the Rangers on a six-game winning streak, facing Giolito and the Guardians could lead to more success for Seager.
Kyle Tucker – HOU
In 2023, Kyle Tucker has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with against right-handed pitchers on the road. He’s blasted 12 home runs with an impressive .424 OBP, a robust .266 ISO, and a solid 172 wRC+. Tucker is yet another Astros player worth considering for your lineup tonight.
Jose Altuve – HOU
Jose Altuve is gearing up for a showdown against his former teammate Zack Greinke. Greinke’s struggles this season are well-documented, with a 5.47 ERA and a string of losses. Altuve, on the other hand, is having a stellar year, slashing .308/.397/.539.
With the Astros vying for the top spot in the NL West, an encounter with an aging Greinke presents a golden opportunity for Altuve to shine. Houston stacks are looking particularly appealing tonight, and Altuve is set to be a key component.
Freddie Freeman – LAD
Freddie Freeman, a lefty, will face right-hander George Kirby tonight. Kirby may have a decent 3.48 ERA, but he’s vulnerable against left-handed hitters, allowing a .250/.273/.419 slash line with 10 home runs and 38 RBI. Freeman, with his .337/.414/.576 season stats, is a formidable threat.
Whether it’s lefties or righties, Freeman has been consistent. His $6,100 price tag on DraftKings is justified by his ability to consistently deliver double-digit fantasy points.
Mike Yastrzemski – SFG
Mike Yastrzemski, a left-hander, is set to face Chase Anderson in Colorado. Anderson’s struggles against lefties are evident, with a 6.59 ERA and a .295/.378/.545 slash line allowed. Yastrzemski has been in top form, slashing .253/.337/.481 this season and an incredible .500/.579/.938 in his last five games.
With Yastrzemski’s success against righties and his impressive track record against Colorado, he’s a strong choice, even if he might be a popular pick at $4,400.
Lane Thomas – WSH
Lane Thomas has been a bright spot for the Nationals this season. Despite a recent slump, he boasts a solid .275/.324/.472 season line with 24 homers and 78 RBI. Tonight, he faces left-hander Wade Miley, who, despite his 3.30 ERA, struggles against righties.
Thomas has excelled against left-handed pitchers, slashing .333/.379/.565 with 13 doubles and eight homers. In a game that might be overshadowed by a Coors Field matchup, Thomas presents an excellent low-usage option.
