We have a big Sunday MLB DFS main slate jam-packed with games on DraftKings and FanDuel and there are a LOT of elite spend up’s to pay up for. That means we’re going to look to the bottom of the barrel to find some value options to sprinkle in and help us get to the expensive guys. Be sure to check out all of our tools including the MLB Lineups page, MLB DFS Projections – powered by FanJections – MLB DFS Ownership, and all of our tools HERE! Let’s dive into our favorite daily fantasy baseball value plays of the day.
MLB DFS Value Pitchers
Zack Littell, Tampa Bay Rays (DraftKings - $6,000, FanDuel - $7,000)
Let’s face it. The Yankees are in a tailspin. Their numbers tell the whole story, too, as they’re 29th in OPS and 28th in wOBA against right-handed pitching since the All-Star break. They also play host to a 26.6% K-rate, and they simply can be exploited. Zack Littell starts for Tampa today and he’s been very solid as a starter for them. He’s very efficient and throws A LOT of strikes. He has only walked TWO batters across his last five starts and the strikeouts have been trending upwards as well punching out five or more batters in three straight games He’s exceeded double-figure DKP in five straight starts and has 20 DKP upside if he picks up a win here.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Daulton Varsho, Toronto Blue Jays (DraftKings - $3,300, FanDuel - $2,600)
Anyone with a pulse can steal a base on Noah Syndergaard so why not gravitate to Varsho for the ability to steal a bag and also put one into the seats. After not homering in July, Varsho belted four homers in August and is hitting .281 over his last 10 games with an OPS of nearly .900. He has 15 stolen bases on the year and Syndergaard has already allowed 14 SB’s since joining the Guardians and he’s only made FOUR starts with them. Think about that for a second. Sprinkle in that left-handed hitters have a .221 ISO and .350 wOBA against Syndergaard, Thor’s hammer may be dropped by the Blue Jays today.
Josh Bell, Miami Marlins (DraftKings - $3,600, FanDuel - $2,900)
In 22 games with the Marlins, Josh Bell has hit eight home runs. In 97 games with Cleveland, he hit 11. He has a .980 OPS since joining the Marlins and has really just been a fantastic piece of the puzzle for them since the acquisition. Bell has a fantastic match-up against Trevor Williams today and Williams has been awful against both splits this year, but especially bad lately. Over the last 30 days, left-handed hitters have a .356 ISO and .395 wOBA against him. Over that same span, Bell’s been on a power surge posting a .239 ISO.
Seiya Suzuki, Chicago Cubs (DraftKings - $3,500, FanDuel - $2,900)
This dude is on fiyahhhhh right about now. He slashed .378/.400/.676 over his last ten games with two home runs, three doubles, one triple, nine runs scored, six more driven in, and a stolen base. He’s riding a nine-game hitting streak and has at least one hit in 14 of 15 games. I understand Bailey Falter has pitched well very recently. That is a fact, but he hasn’t pitched well over the course of the year. He’s allowed a .165 ISO and .325 wOBA to righties and with how well Suzuki is swinging the bat, I have a lot of interest here.
