Top 4 MLB DFS Picks for DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo Fantasy Baseball Targets
Chris Robin

Having positive options is an underrated feeling. We can work ourselves into a tizzy and at the end of it all what do we have left? What do we have to show for all our hard work and slick talk?

Taking a risk and putting yourself in a position of vulnerability can yield positive options. It’s the in-between and build-up to it all is where we get lost. What is the worst that can happen? Someone tells you no or you fail. Write it down and chalk it up to growth.

Tonight, the MLB DFS Main slate is a healthy six games. Right off the bat, we should eliminate a few teams and sure up our player pool. Here are five batters I am building my lines around. Check out the rest at the Team Rise or Fall Study Hub along with my daily DFS cores!

TOR at KC 8:20p OF George Springer(FD-$4,000)(DK-$5,000)(Y!-$22)

There is no way around using Springer tonight. Left-handed pitcher, Daniel Lynch, is as easy as it gets tonight for George. He has wailed on left-handed pitching the last few seasons. To the tune of a .386 OBP and .240 ISO. Looking at the Rise or Study Hub it is clear others will follow suit. Springer, as of now, has a 7.6% ownership on Fanduel and 7.4% ownership on DraftKings. George is a cash game must and the only reason to fade in GPPs is if you’re max-entering and looking to be different. Don’t do that though, lock and load George Springer tonight.

HOU v SEA 8:10p SS Jeremy Pena(FD-$2,800)(DK-$2,800)

Jeremy Pena has been outstanding through his first 47 games as a big leaguer. Headed into this one, against LHP Robbie Ray, he has been even better against left-handed pitching! Jeremy’s 49 ABs against lefties he has racked up three bombs, .354 OBP, and a .244 ISO. At a premium position tonight, Pena has projected around 9.55 Fanduel points and 7.36 DraftKings points. Of the two formats, I would prefer using him on DraftKings given his lowly 2.69% projected ownership.

ARZ at CIN 6:40p 1B Christian Walker(FD-$3,200)(DK-$3,900)

Walker has quietly amassed very respectable counting stats through 53 games. His average stinks but we are after the power numbers. 14 bombs and 26 RBI is exactly what we’re after! Tonight, the Reds trout out RHP Hunter Greene and this kid has against right-handed batters. Per the Rise or Fall Study Hub, Walker’s value is as good as it gets while his ownership percentages are sub-2%! Christian should stay in the clean-up spot tonight and let’s expect a full night of production!

ARZ at CIN 6:40p OF Alek Thomas(FD-$2,800)(DK-$3,600)

Through just 26 games Alek has found a nice groove and has taken some big steps in the right direction. His slugging percentage of .466 and his walk to K rate tells me he has been patient. The one thing that stuck out to me in his Study Hub profile tonight was the rating. On Fanduel it’s all green at 44.35 on just 1.9% ownership. However, on DraftKings, his rating is a whopping 84.11 on a slightly elevated 2.3% ownership.

CIN V ARZ 6:40P 2B/3B Brandon Drury(FD-$3,500)(DK-$5,100)

Call me crazy but, to me, Brandon Drury is the straw that stirs my DFS slate tonight. Drury is riding a five-game hitting streak and has collected nine hits over that span. On Fanduel he is projected around 11.66 points, but his value tier checks in at an A! On Draftkings his overall rating is right up there with the likes of Jose Ramirez, Mike Trout, and even George Springer. The only difference is a slightly lower ownership percentage(7.6%).
