First and foremost, thank you to the men and women who served in the armed forces. Your sacrifice and service hasn’t and shouldn’t go unnoticed. Again, thank you. We have an early lineup lock today, so make sure you get those DFS lineups set. Without further ado, let’s check out the value options for today’s main slate.

Both Sites:

James Kaprielian, SP OAK ($8,000 FD/$9,100 DK) - If you aren’t going with Corbin Burnes Kaprielian is the play. He has a 2.53 ERA on the road this year and he’s held lefties and righties both to a sub-.250 OBP. His last outing was against the Mariners and he twirled seven shutout innings, albeit only with 4 strikeouts. He’s a fly ball guy, but the long ball hasn’t bitten him this year. The Seattle Mariners have a league worst .204 BA versus right-handed pitching, and Seattle is third-worst in the last two weeks versus righties. We are just hoping for a few more strikeouts from the Oakland righty today.

Miguel Sanó , 1B MIN ($3,000 FD/$3,800 DK) - Sano has eight official at-bats against Jorge López , and he’s 4-for-8 with two home runs in those appearances. Furthermore, Lopez has a 7.78 ERA in five home appearances this year, and righties alone have posted an .841 OPS against Lopez. Sano’s batting average against righties this year is lower than you’d expect, but he has seven home runs in just 80 at-bats, not to mention a .797 OPS.


Dansby Swanson , SS ATL ($2,500) - For his career, Swanson is 3-for-10 with a home run off Joe Ross . Swanson has been significantly better at home than on the road this year, so that comes in play today as well. He has a .287 average and .937 OPS at home this year, which is pretty outstanding. He’s hit safely in eight straight games, and in this eight-game run, he has three home runs, six runs scored and five RBI.

Avisaíl García , OF MIL ($2,900) - Garcia against lefties is always a good idea. He’s hitting .270 against them in 2021 with a .899 OPS. He’s homered four times in his last 10 games, to go along with seven runs scored and eight RBI. Tyler Alexander has a 5.27 ERA on the road, and righties have posted a .774 OPS against him. He’s simply too cheap on FanDuel.


Seth Brown, OF OAK ($3,100) - Seattle’s Logan Gilbert came up with a good bit of hype, but the results haven’t matched to date. Lefties have crushed him, to the tune of a .321 batting average. Now, Brown is in a mini-funk himself, and his numbers aren’t overly impressive against right-handers this year. However, he does have seven home runs in 101 at-bats against righties, and in the month of May alone, he has eight extra-base hits in 62 at-bats against righties, good for a .452 slugging percentage and .258 ISO. In any Oakland stack, you can’t deny Brown’s price tag.

Tyler Naquin , OF CIN ($3,700) - The stars might be aligning for Naquin in this matchup. Philadelphia's Vincent Velasquez has surrendered a .339 on-base percentage to left-handed hitters this year, and he’s been more susceptible to lefties than the right-handed variety. As for Naquin, he has an .820 OPS versus righties, and he has a massive .937 OPS at home. He should find himself at the top of the order, and he makes for an integral component of any Cincinnati stack today.
