Welcome to the final day of the baseball season! For the final day of the season, we get a full 15-game slate on both DraftKings and FanDuel, with all 30 MLB teams playing and all 15 games starting between 3:05 and 3:15 PM EST. The postseason races are officially over with the playoff hopes coming to an end yesterday for the Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds, and Chicago Cubs. With it being the final day of the season make sure to watch for lineups to be announced because you never know what guys may be getting the day off, especially on postseason-bound teams.  Let’s enjoy this final day of baseball and build some winning MLB DFS lineups! To do so we will need to find some good value plays to build lineups around so let’s jump right into some of my favorite value options of the day! 


MLB DFS Value Pitchers

Michael King, New York Yankees (DraftKings: $8,000 / FanDuel: $8,600) 

Michael King continues to be underpriced. He struggled with some walks in his last outing walking 5 batters through 6 innings, but he still struck out 5 and only gave up 1 hit and no earned runs so he at least didn’t let those walks hurt him and I expect him to have another great outing today with a good chance of getting back to the 8 plus strikeouts that he had in his previous three starts.

JP Sears, Oakland Athletics (DraftKings: $7,500 / FanDuel: $8,400) 

JP Sears has had a pretty solid season overall and the Oakland Athletics and I expect him to cap it off with a gem today getting to face the Los Angeles Angels who aren’t a very scary offense without Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. JP Sears provides some decent strikeout upside with 7 in his last outing against the Detroit Tigers and should easily return this value today. 

MLB DFS Value Hitters

Christian Encarnacion-Strand, 1B/3B Cincinnati Reds(DraftKings: $4,100 / FanDuel: $3,100) 

While the Cincinnati Reds fans may be disappointed that their season will be over today, they should be very excited about this young team they have and what they should be able to do next season with Christian Encarnacion-Strand being a big part of that. He has really flexed his power at the end of the season, and I am hoping he can add one more homer to his season total today and be a great value option. 

Patrick Wisdom, 3B Chicago Cubs (DraftKings: $3,300 / FanDuel: $2,600) 

Patrick Wisdom homered yesterday as the Cubs scored 10 runs in their win over the Milwaukee Brewers, but it was too little too late for the Cubs as their postseason hopes still came to an end with the Miami Marlins claiming the final wild-card spot. Patrick Wisdom has had a bit of an up-and-down season but always provides some decent power upside, and I am hoping can get homers in back-to-back games here to end the season. 

Noelvi Marte, 3B/SS Cincinnati Reds (DraftKings: $3,700 / FanDuel: $2,400) 

Here we have another young Cincinnati Red that I think will be a big part of their offense next season and I think we will rarely see his price this low next season. Noelvi had 6 hits in the last 2 games including 2 homers. He also has a hit in 12 of his last 13 games and has slashed .404/.429/.553 over that stretch. I expect him to continue to pile the hits today to end the season and who knows maybe he can also make it three straight games with a homer. 

Trevor Larnach, OF Minnesota Twins (DraftKings: $3,800 / FanDuel: $3,300) 

It feels like we must get a part of the final game in Coors Field of the season and the Minnesota Twins offense is a great place to go for it as they get ready for their postseason run. Who better to target than Trevor Larnach who comes in at a low price and has already homered in both of their first two games in Colorado. He should be able to easily return value at this price today getting to play in Coors.
