Tonight’s MLB DFS coverage is for the medium sized 7-game main slate that starts at 7:07 pm ET on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Starting pitching is headlined by NL Cy Young front-runner, Blake Snell, but he’s facing the Dodgers. Mookie Betts and Jose Altuve are the most expensive hitters at our disposal, but Yordan Alvarez is probably my top spend-up option on this slate. 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
Garrett has had a nice year, pitching to a 3.82 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He also has been rock solid in the strikeout department with 140 Ks across 143.2 innings of work. He has been FAR better on the road this year as well with a 2.74 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 16.8 dk ppg, compared to 4.82, 1.29, and 12.6 at home, respectively. The Brewers are not a powerhouse offense by any means and they are sending Colin Rea to the mound, which should increase Garrett’s chances of snagging a win.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Langeliers’ average might be terrible, but the power numbers certainly are not as he clubbed his 19th home run of the year yesterday and has three in his last 10 games. The catcher position is all about punting for upside a lot of times in DFS and Langeliers fits that bill perfectly as he is just $2,700 and can provide us with a home run. He faces Hunter Brown, who is really sputtering as of late with a 6.09 ERA over his last 10 starts with 11 long balls in that span.
Eloy swatted his 16th home run of the year yesterday and has scored at least 7 dk points in three straight games. He has been FAR better at home this year, hitting .299 with a .796 OPS and DK ppg of 7.4, compared to .245, .726, and 6.8 on the road, respectively. The Royals are sending the combination of Steven Cruz and Alec Marsh to the mound today and those two have combined for an ERA north of 6.00 this season.
Taveras is scorching hot right now, hitting .405 with a .964 OPS over his last 10 games. He has a home run and three steals in that span, giving him 12 home runs on the year and 14 steals. He offers a bit of upside with that power/speed blend. Yusei Kikuchi has been good this year, so it’s not an easy matchup, but I am willing to roll the dice, given how hot of a bat he is swinging right now.
