What better way to start off a week than with a nine game MLB DFS main slate and winning some cash? That is the goal here, so let’s stay up to date on the latest MLB news, MLB lineups, and MLB weather throughout the day while building those profitable lineups. Let’s dig into some MLB DFS value options for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo to help you do just that. 



DFS Value Pitchers


Kris Bubic (KC); DraftKings - $6,100; FanDuel - $6,300; Yahoo - $27

Yes, I am aware that Bubic’s ERA is currently sitting at 7.41 on the season and it’s unavoidable to miss that, but all of his advanced metrics make him look better and better all the way down to his 4.62 xFIP. Instead, I prefer to look at Bubic’s 3.92 ERA in 20.2 innings so far in June as that paints an increasingly favorable picture and the left-hander has a solid matchup against Texas tonight. Bubic has only allowed one home run in that stretch while striking out 21 batters and providing upside in that department. 



Noah Syndergaard (LAA); DraftKings - $6,900; FanDuel - $7,500; Yahoo - $34

After what we saw from Syndergaard in his peak days with the Mets, it’s simply insane to see him priced at this level. While it is fair based on what we have seen from him as of late, we are also getting Syndergaard at a good price that allows for some value. The crazy thing though, is that Syndergaard simply isn’t striking out batters this year with just six per nine innings. Syndergaard is limiting the walks, 2.31 per nine innings, and has a solid 3.86 ERA, but unless he starts to pick up the pace with the strikeouts, we will continue to see him here. At 94.2 miles per hour, the velocity on Syndergaard’s fastball is in line with last season, but it comes at a substantial drop of about three miles per hour compared to what we previously saw from him. 

DFS Value Hitters


Edward Olivares, OF (KC); DraftKings - $3,300; FanDuel - $2,300; Yahoo - $9

Olivares previously had success before heading to the Injured List and he has seemingly picked up where he left off with hits in two of three games. Through 48 plate appearances on the season, Olivares is hitting .356 with two home runs, six RBI, and seven runs scored after hitting 20 home runs between Triple-A and the major leagues last season. Martín Pérez continues to have success this season, but Olivares does have the platoon advantage here. 



Franmil Reyes, OF (CLE); DraftKings - $2,600; FanDuel - $2,400; Yahoo - $11

After going deep in his return earlier in the week, Reyes went the next four games without a home run but he is working on a five-game hit streak. While it is a modest step as a small sample size in what has been a rough year for Reyes, it is also a step in the right direction as he looks to find his footing before it becomes a truly lost season. Reyes is hitting just .209 overall with a 40.4% strikeout rate but with a 15.3% barrel-rate, 55.3% hard-hit rate, and 94.6 mile per hour average exit velocity, the results should come. 



César Hernández, 2B (WAS); DraftKings - $3,600; FanDuel - $2,500, Yahoo - $12

We don’t know who is going to start for Pittsburgh tonight, and it likely will be ugly and pieced together, which means Washington’s bats are attractive as a stacking option. Hernandez bats atop the order for the Nationals, so anything that happens should start with him. The second baseman is hitting a solid .263 but the most important thing is his 40 runs scored while driving in 18 runs. 



Garrett Cooper, 1B (MIA); DraftKings - $3,000; FanDuel - $2,800; Yahoo - $17

With just five home runs on the season Cooper doesn’t offer up a ton of upside there, especially compared to other first baseman, but with 35 RBI and a .307 batting average he provides a nice cost savings opportunity. Cooper continues to hit in the middle of the lineup for Miami which puts in a prime position to produce, and if you bypass lack of power, everything else (most importantly the price) is good here.
