Continue reading to find my favorite MLB DFS targets for Tuesday, April 12th's main slate on FanDuel, DraftKings, and Yahoo Fantasy.






$30 Y!

Against lefties this season, the Angels are hitting just .107 (3-for-28) with a 26.7-percent strikeout rate. Jesús Luzardo was excellent in the spring, striking out 10 batters in 11.2 innings of work while allowing just one earned run. Luzardo's price point is most affordable on Yahoo, where his $30 price tag represents greater value and bang for your buck compared to on DraftKings and FanDuel.




$7,000 DK

Alex Cobb is too cheap on DraftKings tonight, plain and simple. He struck out nine batters in 7.1 spring innings and allowed just one earned run. Sure, the Padres have hit righties well this season, but it's inflated by a .353 BABIP (second-highest vs RHP in MLB). Meanwhile, Cobb's arsenal lends itself to a ton of ground balls, so that should help minimize any damage. Cobb certainly doesn't have the highest strikeout upside on the slate and going up against Yu Darvish isn't an easy feat. At $7,000 on DraftKings, though, I'll take my chances.




$12 Y!/$2,000 FD/$2,500 DK

Santiago Espinal is too cheap again. He's hit safely in three of four games this year, including three hits and a stolen base yesterday against New York. Espinal hit lefties at a .348 clip in 2021, and he's carried over his momentum from spring (.313 BA) into the regular season. It would behoove Toronto to keep his bat in the lineup and, even if he does hit in the bottom third, all of the sluggers are up next to drive Espinal in when he gets on base.




$13 Y!/$3,200 FD/$4,100 DK

Do you like BvP data? I know I do! Justin Turner is 6-for-8 in his career against Chris Archer and Turner also posted a .363 wOBA against RHP in 2021. We didn't see much of Archer in the spring, and his lone outing resulted in three earned runs on five hits in just 2.2 innings of work. He may not be out there for long tonight if the game is played, as there does appear to be some rain in the area. After an 0-for-5 performance in the opener, Turner has three hits in his last eight at-bats.




$2,700 FD/$3,400 DK

In Pittsburgh, Chad Kuhl dealt with home run problems. He's posted a 1.21 HR/9 mark for his career and, more notably, a 1.49 HR/9 mark over 126.2 IP between 2020 and 2021. Lefties against Kuhl is the way to go as, for his career, left-handed hitters have posted a .363 wOBA and .491 slugging percentage against him. Lastly, Kuhl struggled in the spring, serving up two home runs and a total of eight earned runs on 12 hits in just 5.1 innings of work. Kuhl is bad against lefties while Brad Miller is good against righties and is hitting atop the Rangers order. Match made in heaven.




$2,800 FD/$3,100 DK

Please let Connor Joe lead off! Martín Pérez allowed a .308 average and .374 wOBA to right-handed hitters in 2021 and those marks sit at .296 and .353, respectively, over his entire career. Perez is no stranger to the long ball, and Joe punished southpaws last year to the tune of a .306 batting average and .941 OPS. Through four games, Joe is hitting .313 with a .480 wOBA and he's homered in two of his last three contests.




$2,300 DK/$2,500 FD

Dakota Hudson pitches to contact and though Bobby Witt Jr. is hitting just .125 on the year, he finds a way to put up fantasy points – scoring nine or more in three of his last four contests. The Kansas City third baseman has all the talent in the world and he'll put the bat on the ball against Hudson. From there, good things should happen. Witt Jr. may only have two hits through four games this season, but both have gone for doubles and he's added three runs scored, three RBI, and one stolen base to his ledger.
