Today’s MLB DFS coverage is for the 12-game main slate on DraftKings and FanDuel that starts at 7:05 pm ET. We do have Coors Field on the slate, so keep that in mind when setting lineups. Starting pitching is deep today and we have some strong headliners in Gerrit Cole, Joe Ryan, and Zac Gallen. We do not have any mlb weather concerns, which is always great and makes for a much more enjoyable mlb dfs experience. 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

Tanner Bibee, Cleveland Guardians (DraftKings: $6,500 / FanDuel: $8,400)

Bibee was off to a hot start at AAA and carried that momentum into his first start at the big league level last week by tossing 5.2 innings of one-run ball with eight strikeouts in a win over the Rockies. The Yankees are near the bottom of the league in scoring this season at 3.93 runs per game and they are currently without BOTH Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, so this offense is just trash right now. The only thing working against Bibee tonight is that the Yankees are sending Gerrit Cole to the hill and his chances of a win are lower. 

Bryce Miller, Seattle Mariners (DraftKings: $4,000 / FanDuel: Doesn’t exist, because of slow player pool updating)

Miller has struggled a bit in the minors in a small sample thus far this year, but he was great last year with a 3.16 ERA and 163 strikeouts across 133.2 innings. The A’s offense has been bad against righties this season and they’ve been very bad at home this season (averaging just 3.33 runs per game in Oakland, compared to 4.50 on the road). They also have the 6th highest strikeout rate over the last week and the 10th highest strikeout rate on the season. At just $4,000, there is plenty of value and upside here. 

MLB DFS Value Hitters

Dominic Smith, 1B, Washington Nationals (DraftKings: $2,300 / FanDuel: $2,400)

Smith is swinging a hot bat right now as he is 6-12 (.500) over his last three games with a home run, double, and a pair of runs scored. Today he faces Hayden Wesneski, who has a 5.24 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through his first five starts. Lefties have crushed him, slashing .308/.386/.590 against him (.976 OPS), compared to the .280/.315/.440 line (.755 OPS) that righties have produced. Smith should be able to keep the momentum going and at a cheap price tag.  

Zach Neto, SS, Los Angeles Angels (DraftKings: $2,700 / FanDuel: $2,400) 

Neto has moved into the leadoff spot for the Angles and he is producing pretty wel, going 4-10 over his last three games with a walk, steal, and run scored. Hitting in front of Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani is obviously a good thing for run scoring and the Angels should be able to put some runs on the board tonight against Steven Matz, who has a 6.23 ERA and 1.73 WHIP through his first five starts of the season. 

Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach, OF, Minnesota Twins (DraftKings: $3,700 and $3,400 / FanDuel: $2,700 and $3,000)

I like the Twins lefty bats today against Michael Kopech (not just Kepler and Larnach, but also Polanco and Gallo, they are just a bit pricier). Kopech has already given up 8 home runs in 25.2 innings pitched and just has overall been very bad with a 7.01 ERA and 1.71 WHIP. The reason I like lefties specifically in this spot is because the wind is blowing out pretty strongly (13 mph) to right center field, so the power ally for lefties. We could see a cheap home run or two here. 

Joey Wiemer, OF, Milwaukee Brewers (DraftKings: $2,800)

Coors Field on tap today and I love the Brewers. They are facing a bad pitcher in Ryan Feltner and the wind is blowing out to right field at 10 mph. That will more so benefit guys like Christian Yelich and Rowdy Tellez, but it doesn’t hurt Wiemer. He could hit one out to the opposite field, but also just has a good chance of scoring runs and driving in runs, because of it being a Coors Field game. Wiemer is hitting .313 with an .884 OPS over his last 10 games.
