Happy Sunday everyone! It may be week three of the NFL season, but we still have a loaded 12-game main slate on both DraftKings and FanDuel to get into. The top-priced pitchers on this slate include Spencer Strider and Freddy Peralta. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Aaron Judge are the most expensive hitters at our disposal. Henry Wilson is on the playbook today so be sure to give that a read, and don't forget 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 Pitcher
Mike Clevinger, Chicago White Sox (DraftKings - $7,600, FanDuel - $10,000)
Outside of a blowup start against the Tigers, Clevinger has been nails lately. He's had seven strikeouts in three straight starts and had a 10-strikeout game as recently as 8/27. He gets a really interesting matchup here against the Red Sox who have a 25.8% K-rate in September. He has been a little weaker to left-handed bats, which Boston has an abundance of, but they have been largely ice-cold outside of Rafael Devers.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Jose Abreu, 1B, Houston Astros (DraftKings - $3,900, FanDuel - $2,900)
Abreu has been up and down all year long, but he does have three home runs in his last 10 games. On the year he holds a .213 ISO against southpaws and gets a great matchup against a lefty in Veneziano. Abreu is one of the cheapest options to get exposure to an Astros team that has been top 5 against left-handed arms on the season and should have plenty of scoring opportunities.
Evan Carter, OF, Texas Rangers (DraftKings - $3,600, FanDuel - $3,000)
Evan Carter has been lighting it up, hitting .321 with a 1.136 OPS over his last 10 games. Over that span, he has two home runs, six RBI, and two stolen bases to top it off. He's matched up against Bryan Woo who has been absolutely dreadful against lefties. On the year, Woo is allowing a .391 wOBA, .532 SLG, and 1.85 HR/9. It's a perfect spot for Carter and the production has just been too good to pass up with this price tag.
Jared Triolo, 1B/2B, Pittsburgh Pirates (DraftKings - $2,800, FanDuel - $2,200)
Triolo has three multi-hit games in his last five with two home runs. He's in a great spot here against lefty Brandon Williamson who has allowed eight runs across his last eight innings. Williamson is allowing a .330 wOBA and .460 SLG to righties on the year and all 16 home runs he has allowed have come from righties. There are a ton of top-end hitters on this slate and Triolo offers very cheap upside.
