There is nothing like a Sunday filled with day baseball and both DraftKings and FanDuel offer up solid nine-game MLB DFS main slates while Yahoo goes for the full 14 games. Stay on top of the latest MLB Weather, MLB Lineups, and MLB News throughout the day as we work towards setting a profitable lineup. Here are some MLB DFS value options that can help you fit some high-priced studs into the salary cap. 

DFS Value Pitchers


Jack Flaherty (STL); DraftKings - $6,600; FanDuel - $8,200; Yahoo - $33

This might be a case of name recognition here but we most likely are not going to see him any cheaper due to the delayed start to the season for the right-hander. Flaherty has only made it through three innings in each of his two starts but he did get up to 71 pitches in his last outing (he had a 75-pitch limit). I would expect to see that number increase today against the Cubs and his control should improve after walking five against Milwaukee on Tuesday. At this point, looking at Flaherty’s stat line through his first two starts is essentially pointless and instead this is a bet solely on his track record. 


Jordan Lyles (BAL); DraftKings - $7,300; FanDuel - $7,600; Yahoo - $27

While Lyles has a 4.92 ERA and 1.52 WHIP so far this season, and there is nothing attractive about that, we are shopping in the value bin. Lyles does enter today on the heels of two straight solid starts of 17.2 and 13.5 DK points, respectively while striking out 11 batters in 11.2 innings. The White Sox aren’t exactly working from a position of strength when it comes to health and we should get about five or six innings out of him at a minimum. If you are looking for some upside though, Lyles does have a 4.31 FIP. 

DFS Value Hitters


Jake Meyers, OF (HOU); DraftKings - $2,000; FanDuel - $2,000; Yahoo - $10

Meyers just returned off the Injured List and it appears he has settled into the role as Houston’s everyday center fielder. For now, we still get the outfielder as a minimum priced option and while Nestor Cortes has had success this season, Meyers does get the platoon advantage. In his second start of the season on Saturday, Meyers picked up two singles as he looks to continue his success over 49 games (163 plate appearances) last season with a .260 batting average, six home runs, 28 RBI, and 22 runs scored. 


Taylor Walls, 2B/SS/3B (TB); DraftKings - $2,300; FanDuel - $2,100; Yahoo - $7

A look at Walls .168 batting average on the season is enough to send you running for the hills, but we have to judge him on more than that. Walls’ BABIP is just .219 so it does indicate there should be better days on the horizon although his 26% strikeout rate does make things a little difficult. However, in this situation, it’s really the short-term performance and outlook that we are focused on, and Walls checks that box. The infielder is working on a modest four-game hit streak and Walls is coming off a two-hit effort on Saturday as he continues to get regular playing time for Tampa Bay. 


Seth Brown, 1B/OF (OAK); DraftKings - $3,500; FanDuel - $2,500; Yahoo - $14

Targeting Brady Singer has been a solid strategy these days, and Brown is a powerful bat who hits in the middle of Oakland’s lineup. While Brown struggles to hit for average regardless which hand the pitcher throws with, his power and run production are heavily weighted towards the platoon advantage which he does in fact have today. Brown has hits in five straight games and is hitting nine-of-21 over that stretch. With nine home runs and 35 RBI so far this season, we are working with some power upside and Brown gives us a low cost shot at a long ball along with a chance for some RBI. 


Kole Calhoun, OF (TEX); DraftKings - $3,900; FanDuel - $2,500; Yahoo - $14

Stacking Rangers’ today against Jackson Tetreault is going to be a popular, and likely profitable, strategy and Texas’ cleanup hitter is a good place to start. Overall, it has been an underwhelming season for Calhoun with a .235 batting average, but he is a professional hitter with eight home runs and 29 RBI on the season. Perhaps even more importantly, Tetreault has a 5.73 ERA (6.61 xERA) and has allowed 2.45 home runs per nine innings.
