Tonight’s MLB DFS coverage is for the tiny 5-game main slate that starts at 7:05 pm ET on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Starting pitching is headlined by Max Scherzer… and it falls off FAST after that. We 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 Pitcher

Emmet Sheehan, Los Angeles Dodgers (DraftKings: $7,400)

A pitcher in Coors? I know and I don’t love it either, but we are dealing with a five game slate and these value pitching options are ROUGH. Really, pitching on this slate is awful in general. Sheehan has pitched great so far through two starts, compiling a 1.50 ERA and 0.58 WHIP, but only striking out seven across 12 innings of work. He should have a nice chance at picking up a win today. 

MLB DFS Value Hitters

Jose Abreu, 1B, Houston Astros (DraftKings: $3,200 / FanDuel: $2,700)

Abreu is playing pretty well right now, hitting .250 with two home runs and 9 total R/RBI over his last 10 games. He has been a slightly more productive road player this year (6.0 dk ppg to 5.6 dk ppg) based on the fact that five of his six long balls have been on the road. Tonight he faces Adam Wainwright, who has been abysmal this season with a 6.56 ERA, 1.82 WHIP, .348 BAA, and eight home runs allowed across 46.2 innings of work. It has somehow been even worse at home for Waino as those numbers jump to 7.03 ERA, 3.69 BAA, and 1.97 WHIP.

Jordan Walker, OF, St. Louis Cardinals (DraftKings: $3,100 / FanDuel: $3,000)

Walker is cooking right now, hitting .353 over his last 10 games with two home runs and a stolen base. Tonight he faces J.P. France, who has not pitched as well recently after starting off the season with two great outings. Over his last seven starts France has a 4.32 ERA, 5.29 FIP, and has given up 43 hits and eight home runs across 41.2 innings in that timeframe. 

Corey Julks, OF, Houston Astros (DraftKings: $2,500 / FanDuel: $2,700)

Julks is hitting .258 with a home run and a pair of steals over his last 10 games and now has six home runs and 12 steals on the year. He provides a little bit of upside in a variety of ways. He has been far more productive on the road this season, hitting .289 with a .737 OPS and 10 steals, compared to .217, .632, and two steals on the road, respectively.
