We've got a strong 11-game main slate for MLB DFS today that has Coors Field and Jacob deGrom in play, so finding true value plays and DFS bargains is going to be paramount to our success tonight. Be sure to check out the MLB DFS Livestream that James Grande and I did as we identify a number of ways to go with regard to your roster construction and don't forget to check in with our live broadcast at 5pm ET on our YouTube page as well. I’ve gone through our MLB DFS Playbook,  the MLB DFS Daily Projections and studied the pitching match-ups very closely so I have a pretty good idea as to what direction I am taking. I always recommend you take a run through our MLB DFS tools to ensure you are not leaving any stone unturned as well.

So let’s get to it.



MLB DFS Value Picks – Pitching

Alek Manoah, Toronto Blue Jays (DraftKings Only: $6,900)

Manoah is coming off his best start of the season, though I suppose it should be taken with a grain of salt as it came against the New Yok Yankees who have been a bit of a hot mess, offensively speaking. Still, the Mariners rank 20th in the league with a .307 wOBA against righties and they are striking out 24.4-percent of the time. We know from Manoah's history that his start to the season was as uncharacteristic as it was awful, so we're pulling for the turnaround here as he builds off the momentum of his last start. As a second starter to maybe pair with deGrom, the price is right.



MLB DFS Value Picks – Hitting

Shea Langeliers, C Oakland Athletics (DraftKings: $3,200; FanDuel: $2,700)

Nothing like getting a splash of that Oakland stank into your GPP lineups, amirite? Langaliers is pretty cheap and Luis Cessa is an absolute gas-can on the mound. It would have been better if this game was in Cincinnati instead of Oakland, but Langaliers has all six of his home runs off righthanded pitching.

Christian Walker, 1B Arizona Diamondbacks (DraftKings: $3,800; FanDuel: $3,400)

If you're looking for a slice of Coors and don't want to play the inflated price of Rockies first baseman CJ Cron, then take a long look at Walker at this price. Kyle Freeland can be a ground ball machine, but Walker has a career .333 wOBA in 24 at-bats against him and he's also got two home runs of him. With the way he hits lefties in general, this should be a solid play.

Brandon Drury, 2B Los Angeles Angels (DraftKings: $3,800; FanDuel: $2,600)

If you watched the livestream, you know this play is all about James Grande. Our resident Babyface has been tracking Drury against left-handed pitching and while Wade Miley has looked strong thus far, it's still Wade Miley and we know he can blow up at any point. Drury has multi-position eligibility, so see where you can best use him in your lineups. Grande assures me we won't be disappointed.

Edmundo Sosa, 3B Philadelphia Phillies (DraftKings: $2,600; FanDuel: $2,800)

Double-check the Phillies lineup to make sure Sosa is in it, but if you're looking for a pay-down at third (or wherever he qualifies in the infield), he's a guy who has routinely hit lefties well. Yes, it's Framber Valdez and that is super-risky, but a 1.164 OPS and .478 wOBA against lefties speaks volumes.

CJ Abrams, SS Washington Nationals (DraftKings: $2,400; FanDuel: $2,700)

Believe it or not, the Nationals actually do a good job against lefties and Abrams is one of the driving forces behind that with his .868 OPS and .372 wOBA against southpaws. He's now hit safely in five of his last six games with two home runs and eight RBI and should be able to post quality at-bats against veteran Rich Hill

Joey Wiemer, OF Milwaukee Brewers (DraftKings: $2,100; FanDuel: $2,500)

The Brewers happen to be one of, if not the, worst teams against left-handed pitching this season, but none of that matters to Wiemer. The rookie outfielder has a .547 wOBA against southpaws and that goes with an impressive 1.313 OPS. He's hit safely in three of his last four games with two multi-hit performances and his second home run of the season. Anyone afraid of Tyler Anderson tonight? I don't think so.
