We are back with another day of baseball as we look at this five game main slate on DraftKings and four games on FanDuel. We may only have a few games to get into but we do have Coors Field on the slate to keep things interesting as the Giants take on the Rockies. The top priced arms on this slate are Kevin Gausman and Nathan Eovaldi and for hitters we have Corey Seager and Aaron Judge. Be sure to check out all of our tools including the MLB Lineups page, MLB DFS Projections – powered by FanJections – MLB DFS Ownership, and all of our tools HERE! Let’s dive into our favorite daily fantasy baseball value plays of the day.
MLB DFS Value Pitchers
With limited arms on a small slate, Logan Webb looks to be the best value option. I know he's pitching in Coors, but the Rockies have been in the bottom half of the league in most offensive categories against right handed arms while holding the fourth highest k-rate at 24.9%. Webb is an elite ground ball pitcher which can really help neutralize the fact he's in Coors. He did have some trouble in his Coors start in June, allowing four runs over five innings, but he should have great win equity here given the matchup with Chase Anderson and his 6.49 ERA.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Andrew Vaughn draws an interesting spot here against Kenta Maeda. Maeda has been a decent pitcher but has been struggling keeping the ball in the park, allowing at least one home run in 10 straight games. On the year he is allowing a .345 wOBA, .511 SLG, and 2.00 HR/9 to right handed bats which is perfect for Vaughn who has hit 15 of his 19 bombs off righties. Pair this with his .184 ISO and two home runs in his last 10 and he makes for a very cheap home run option.
Max Kepler has been smoking righties on the year, holding a .347 wOBA and .244 ISO with 18 homers. He is in a fantastic spot here against Jose Urena who holds an 8.46 ERA on the year while giving up nine home runs across his 22 innings. Kepler has hits in four of his last five games, with a home run and six RBI's and should be a pretty popular play given his matchup.
Not only is Blake Sobol playing in Coors field, but the Rockies are starting Chase Anderson who has allowed 44 runs in 41 innings pitched. Anderson has been dreadful against both splits this year, giving Sabol a huge advantage with his .334 wOBA and .191 ISO against righties. He's got two home runs in his last 10 games and as the cheapest option to gain exposure to Coors Field, he's an easy plug and play.
