Today’s MLB DFS coverage is for the massive 14-game main slate that starts at 7:05 pm ET on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Starting pitching is headlined by Nathan Eovaldi and Mitch Keller. We do have Coors Field on the slate, so keep that in mind when setting lineups. We have a couple mild mlb weather concerns today, so make sure to keep a close eye on the reports leading up to first pitch. Henry is on the playbook today, make sure to give that a read, and don’t forget to check out the MLB Lineups page, Vegas Odds, and all of our MLB DFS Tools. Let’s dive into some of my favorite value options of the day and some we can fit into our cash and tournament lineups!


MLB DFS Value Pitchers

Carlos Carrasco, New York Mets (DraftKings: $6,200)

Carrasco is coming off his best game of the season as he fired eight shutout innings against the Diamondbacks while striking out four and picking up the win to finish with 27.6 dk points. He has been pitching much better and has scored double-digit DFS points in three straight. The White Sox aren’t a scary offense, especially while Eloy Jimenez is out. 

MLB DFS Value Hitters

Triston Casas, 1B, Boston Red Sox (DraftKings: $2,500 / FanDuel: $2,800)

Casas was one of my top plays for yesterday’s playbook and while his home run streak came to an end, he still had another solid game, going 1-2 with two walks and a run scored to finish with 9 DK points, his fifth straight game with at least that many. I will continue to ride the hot bat, especially considering he is facing Luis Medina, who has a 6.34 ERA and 1.61 WHIP this season through 59.2 innings. 

Oswald Peraza, 2B/3B, New York Yankees (DraftKings: $2,800 / FanDuel: $2,300)

Peraza led off for the Yanks yesterday and he had a monster game, going 1-1 with FOUR walks, a steal, and a run scored to finish with 18 DK points. He has a steal in both games he has played in since being recalled while going 2-2 at the plate. I like him today at this price tag, especially if he is in the leadoff spot again. 

CJ Abrams, SS, Washington Nationals (DraftKings: $3,100 / FanDuel: $2,800)

Who is this guy and what has he done with the real Abrams? He is on FIRE right now, scoring 12, 10, 13, 16, 22, 19, 17, and 12 dk points over his last eight games. He is hitting .410 over his last 10 games with EIGHT steals in that span. He now has 17 steals on the season to go along with eight home runs, giving him a good bit of upside in multiple ways. 

Michael Conforto, OF, San Francisco Giants (DraftKings: $3,400 / FanDuel: $3,000)

Conforto is hitting .294 with a home run and two steals over his last 10 games and now has 13 home runs and 91 total R/RBI on the year in just 80 games of action. He has been a focal point of the Giants offense this year and today he gets to play in the Great American Smallpark against one of the worst pitchers in baseball in Luke Weaver (7.00 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 17 home runs allowed in 73.1 innings of work). 

Corey Julks, OF, Houston Astros (DraftKings: $3,000)

Julks is hitting .382 with a .918 OPS over his last 10 games with three steals in that span. He is hitting .279 on the year with six home runs and 15 steals across 72 games of action. He has been much better on the road, hitting .290 with a 7.7 dk ppg average, compared to .266 and 6.5 at home, respectively. He now gets to play in the best offensive park in baseball at Coors Field. He isn’t cheap on FD, but this DK price is nice.
