Today’s MLB DFS coverage is for the tiny 3-game main slate that starts at 7:10 pm ET on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Starting pitching is headlined by Kodai Senga. Paul Goldschmidt and Luis Robert Jr. come in as the most expensive hitters. We do not have Coors Field on the slate, so you don’t have to keep that in mind when setting lineups. We have one mild mlb weather concern today (New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals), so make sure to keep a close eye on the reports leading up to first pitch. Grande 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 Pitcher

Dylan Cease, Chicago White Sox (DraftKings: $8,000 / FanDuel: $9,400)

None of the pitching is too expensive today, and Cease comes in directly in the middle of the pack. Senga is probably my favorite option overall, but you can save $1,000 by going to Cease. He has been very up-and-down this season, but he has posted plenty of games with 20+ DK points, including his most recent start when he finished with 26.5. He has had 10 straight starts with at least 5 Ks and had at least 7 Ks in seven of them. 

MLB DFS Value Hitters

Daniel Vogelbach, 1B, New York Mets (DraftKings: $2,200 / FanDuel: $2,300)

As a Mets fan, I can’t stand Vogelbach and I think he sucks, but we are dealing with a 3-game slate today and our options are extremely limited. He has shown a bit more pop of late with two dingers in his last four games and he has a 1.008 OPS over his last 10 games. He is nearly the minimum price and he is facing a pitcher in Josiah Gray who has given up quite a few long balls over the last two years (53 to be exact). 

Eloy Jimenez, OF, Chicago White Sox (DraftKings: $4,200 / FanDuel: $3,200)

He is a bit pricier than my normal value play break downs, but there’s not a ton of options to like today and he is still a pretty cheap option, especially for how well he is performing. He has scored double-digit DK points in five of his past six games (scoring 5 points in the one game he didn’t), while racking up two hits in all five of those games. Having to face Tanner Bibee is not an easy test, but it’s not going to scare me away from Jimenez. 

Seiya Suzuki, OF, Chicago Cubs (DraftKings: $3,200 / FanDuel: $2,800)

Suzuki is also swinging a hot bat right now, hitting .293 over his last 10 games with a home run and three steals. He now has eight home runs and five steals on the year and has the potential to do either. He has been far better on the road this year, hitting .281 with a .816 OPS, compared to .235 and .652 at home, respectively. He faces Miles Mikolas, who has really struggled lately with a 5.05 ERA and .288 BAA over his last 10 starts.
