Tonight's Major League Baseball action brings with it an 8-game MLB DFS main slate with plenty of options to fill your daily fantasy baseball lineups on DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo Fantasy. We do have a Coors Field game on the slate, so that always adds an interesting wrinkle to things when building MLB daily fantasy lineups. Plus, we do have some rain in the forecast to monitor, so be sure to check out today's MLB weather report. One MLB DFS value play to consider is Detroit Tigers veteran Miguel Cabera, who travels to Toronto in a favorable matchup. As always, it is important to stay on top of the latest fantasy baseball MLB news, MLB starting lineups, and MLB daily projections while setting and tracking your MLB DFS lineup. Let’s jump right into some MLB DFS value picks for Thursday, July 28th.



MLB DFS Value Pitchers



Alex Wood (SF); DraftKings - $7,500; FanDuel - $8,400; Yahoo - $35

Wood has one of the better matchups of the night at home against the Cubs. Plus, he has been pitching well in general lately, which makes him an attractive cheap option at pitcher. In his last 10 starts, Wood has a 3.71 ERA and 1.08 WHIP while striking out a batter per inning. The one concern I would have is the fact that he only has total 8.2 innings pitched over his last two starts combined. Still, Wood does have 22.1 and 13.4 DK points, respectively, in those outings – so we are still getting a fair amount of production. That is due in large part to his strikeout upside, but Wood has done a good job of limiting the base runners recently too.




José Urquidy (HOU); DraftKings - $8,300; FanDuel - $9,100; Yahoo - $39

We get Urquidy at a fair price tonight, obviously better on DK, as he faces the Mariners for the second straight start. The right-hander picked up the victory with six innings of one run ball in Seattle as he allowed just four hits and two walks while striking out three. With nine victories so far this season, Urquidy gives us a good chance at leaving with a win and that does help to make up for the lack of true strikeout upside since he has just seven per nine innings but he only walks 1.97 batters per nine innings. Urquidy has a 3.93 ERA overall but he has been even more successful at home with a 2.63 ERA through 41 innings – and that is where he pitches tonight.


MLB DFS Value Hitters



Bryson Stott, 2B/SS (PHI); DraftKings - $2,900; FanDuel - $2,700; Yahoo - $14

I am not going to be shy, I'm targeting Zach Thompson tonight and Stott works nicely in the middle infield at a sub $3k price on DK and FD. Over his past 10 games, Stott is hitting .286 with three home runs and nine RBI – although five of those RBI did come in the same game. Stott is still hitting just .195 on the season, but his .212 BABIP does give us some cause for optimism. Plus, with 31 RBI and 31 runs, we have still gotten a fair amount of production out of the Phillies' middle infielder. 




Miguel Cabrera, 1B (DET); DraftKings - $2,100; FanDuel - $2,400; Yahoo - $12

Let’s target Yusei Kikuchi as the southpaw has allowed 1.94 home runs per nine innings so far this season while walking an equally astronomical 5.68 batters per nine innings. Out of the 14 home runs against Kikuchi, 12 have been hit by right-handed batters who are hitting .270 against him. While he has just four home runs on the season, the ability is still somewhere in there for Cabrera, who is hitting .287 this year with 36 RBI. 




Josh Naylor, 1B/OF (CLE); DraftKings - $3,800; FanDuel - $3,200; Yahoo - $17

I like Naylor tonight in his matchup against Kutter Crawford. Plus, we get him a night after he went deep for the 14th time this season in just 69 games. With 52 RBI so far this year and a .279 batting average, Naylor has been a productive hitter in the middle of the order for Cleveland – and he is simply priced too cheap. The fact that Naylor only strikes out 15.6% of the time helps here and I like his solid 9.4% barrel rate. 




Jake Lamb, 1B/3B/OF (LAD); DraftKings - $2,100; FanDuel - $2,200; Yahoo - $16

I could not leave here without throwing out some Coors Field exposure, and it is even better when it comes at minimum price. Lamb has the platoon advantage against José Ureña and the Dodgers have an implied run total of seven. Lamb is batting just .224 in 49 at bats, but he can go deep at any time and he is in a favorable position to drive in runs as well.
