MLB DFS Top Plays for Saturday 4/15/23
The first player on my list is Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels. Ohtani has been a beast this season and has already hit six home runs, with two of them coming against today’s opponent, Nick Pivetta of the Boston Red Sox. Right-handed starters with above-average flyball rates like Pivetta have struggled against the Angels since last year, with an ERA of 4.81. Ohtani is priced at $6100 with a DK Rating of 82.73 and projected to score 12.70 DK points, making him a strong play for today’s contests.
The second player on my list is of the Cleveland Guardians. Ramirez is slugging .591 in his last 287 plate appearances against right-handers who rely heavily on the slider, like today’s opponent, Chad Kuhl of the Washington Nationals. The Guardians’ hitters are batting .296 against bottom-tier right-handed pitchers like Kuhl over the last two years. Ramirez is priced at $5900, with a DK Rating of 99.63, and projected to score 12.27 DK points, making him an excellent option for today’s contests.
The third player on my list is of the Atlanta Braves. Olson has hit two home runs in his last three plate appearances against today’s opponent, Kris Bubic of the Kansas City Royals. Pitchers with similar repertoires to Bubic have an ERA of 6.71 against the Braves over the last year. Olson is priced at $5300, with a DK Rating of 97.15 and projected to score 11.12 DK points, making him a solid option for today’s contests.
The fourth and final player on my list is of the New York Mets. Marte has a wOBA of .379 in 52 plate appearances this season, and while his matchup against Shintaro Fujinami of the Oakland Athletics is not as favorable as the others on this list, he has the potential to provide great value for his $5000 price tag. Marte has a DK Rating of 92.42 and projected to score 10.34 DK points, making him a potential sleeper pick for today’s contests.
In conclusion, Ohtani, Ramirez, Olson, and Marte are the top four MLB DFS plays for DraftKings today. These players have favorable matchups and are projected to provide great value for their respective price tags. Good luck with your lineups!
