The final regular season Saturday MLB main slate is loaded with 11 games on both DraftKings and FanDuel. This slate kicks off at 7:10 pm EST and pitching is headlined by Spencer Strider and Clayton Kershaw. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Mookie Betts are the most expensive hitters at our disposal. Henry Wilson is on the playbook 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 Pitchers
Kutter Crawford, Boston Red Sox (DraftKings - $6,800, FanDuel - $7,200)
Baltimore has clinched a playoff spot and has been resting their star players. We just saw Nick Pivetta go out and completely dominate the Orioles with 10 strikeouts across seven scoreless innings. Crawford has had three straight games with seven strikeouts and should be in line for another solid outing. I would not go any cheaper than Crawford on this slate and his low price tag will help us find our expensive hitters.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Brendan Rodgers, 2B, Colorado Rockies (DraftKings - $3,800, FanDuel - $3,200)
Brendan Rodgers is crushing the ball, hitting .310 with a .984 OPS over his last 10 games. Over that span, he's also gone yard four times with three multi-hit games. Rodgers has double-digit DK points in five of his last six games and his price tag has barely moved. If you're not paying up at 2B, Rodgers looks to have the highest upside at low cost.
Elehuris Montero, 1B, Colorado Rockies (DraftKings - $3,600, FanDuel - $3,300)
Montero is on a heater right now with three home runs in four games. Over his last 10, he's hitting .244 with a .774 OPS and has scored 10 runs with 5 RBI. The Twins are pitching a bullpen game which doesn't give Montero any split advantages, but his price is just way too cheap considering how he's playing while giving us Coors exposure.
Estevan Florial, OF, New York Yankees (DraftKings - $3,000, FanDuel - $2,500)
Florial went hitless in his last outing but has been steadily productive for his price. He hits at the top of the order and has two steals over his last five games. Alec Marsh will be the long man for the Royals and he has really struggled against lefties. On the season he's allowing a .411 wOBA and .570 SLG to lefties and 2 HR/9 to both splits. We can't really ask for a better spot considering Aaron Judge hits behind him and has five bombs in his last six games.
