Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/30/16

P – Zach Davies (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $8,000. Davies has been spectacular this month. In five starts in June, he owns a 1.64 ERA, 0.788 WHIP, 36 strikeouts, and six walks in 33 innings pitched. One of those five starts came against the Dodgers, in which he threw seven innings, giving up five hits, one run, and he struck out six. The Dodgers offense has really struggled over the past seven days, which is a good sign for the young right-hander.

P – Carlos Rodon (vs. Minnesota Twins): $8,500. Rodon is coming off a very good start against the Toronto Blue Jays in his last start. Over his last 12 innings pitched, he has struck out 16 batters, which is a great sign for daily fantasy. The Minnesota Twins rank in the bottom of the major leagues against left-handed pitching in 2016, so this should be a great matchup for Rodon. Rodon faced the Twins on April 13th, going six innings, giving up three hits, zero runs, and he struck out six. Rodon can be a very high risk, high reward pitcher, so this could be a risky play.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/29/16

P – Max Scherzer (vs. New York Mets): $13,500. Well, you can’t go wrong with this pick. First of all, the Mets offense has been TERRIBLE over the past seven days. They rank 28th in runs, last in slugging, 29th in OBP, and 15th in strikeouts. Second of all, Scherzer has dominated the Mets since joining the Nationals in 2015. In five starts against the Mets, he has a 2.00 ERA. His last start against the Mets, on May 17th, he threw 6.1 innings, giving up two runs, and he struck out 10.

P – Junior Guerra (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $7,400. Guerra has been pretty consistent this year. In 10 starts, he owns a 4-1 record, with a 3.67 ERA, 51 hits against, 53 strikeouts, and 19 walks in 61.1 innings pitched. He is facing a Dodgers’ offense that has struggled mightily over the past seven days. During those seven days, the Dodgers are ranked 26th in runs (26), last in OBP (.298), and 24th in slugging (.402).

P- Madison Bumgarner (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $14,000. Bumgarner has not allowed more than two earned runs in his past 12 starts. He is now 8-3 on the season, with a 1.83 ERA, and 115 strikeouts. In 62 career at bats against Bumgarner, the Phillies’ offense is batting .210, with two home runs, 20 strikeouts, and a .239 OBP.

P- Brandon Finnegan (vs. San Diego Padres): This month has been great for Finnegan. He is 2-1, with a 2.96 ERA, and he has gone six innings while giving up fewer than two runs in three of the last four starts. On the season, he is 3-5, with a 3.81 ERA,with 59 strikeouts.

DraftKings is a lot better for bringing home the bigger jackpots on this system, and we love the ability to swap out players all day.

P – Max Scherzer (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $13,900. In 61 career at bats against Scherzer, the Brewers’ offense is batting .115, with 28 strikeouts, and a .169 OBP. In his last start against Milwaukee, Scherzer held together a perfect game through seven innings. Unfortunately he lost the perfect game in the seventh, but he only gave up one hit with 16 strikeouts in the complete game. In his last three starts, he owns a 2-0 record, 0.90 ERA, and 27 strikeouts.

P – Cody Reed (vs. San Diego Padres): $7,200. In his MLB debut, Reed showed lots of promise. He threw seven innings against the Houston Astros, giving up four runs, and striking out nine. His ability to strike batters out should make him a very good play on Friday. San Diego is ranked 27th in strikeouts, which is great for Reed.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/23/16

P- Jerad Eickhoff (vs. Minnesota Twins): $9,400. All of the top tier pitchers have tough match-ups on Thursday, but Eickhoff has a very favorable matchup. He will be facing the Minnesota Twins, who have scored the fewest runs in the American League this year. So far in 2016, Eickhoff is 4-9, with a 3.49 ERA, 83 hits against, and 73 strikeouts in 85 innings pitched. His record isn’t pretty, but it is more a matter of lack of run support, which shouldn’t be an issue against the Twins.

 

P- Tim Lincecum (vs. Oakland Athletics): $7,100. Lincecum dominated the A’s in his season debut on Saturday. The A’s offense has really struggled recently, so Lincecum should be able to take care of business again on Thursday. Over the last seven games, the A’s rank 29th in runs, 29th in OBP, and 29th in slugging. This will also be Lincecum’s debut at his home stadium, so the crowd will be behind him, which should help him succeed.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/21/16

P- Jose Fernandez (vs. Atlanta Braves): $13,700. Fernandez has been lethal on the mound recently. In his last 10 games, he owns a 2.25 ERA, with 91 strikeouts in 64 innings pitched. Jose will be facing one of the worst offenses in baseball, so this should be a great matchup for daily fantasy.

P- Sonny Gray (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $6,600. Gray pitched incredibly well in his last start until the sixth inning, which he surrendered five funs. In his two starts prior to his last starts (since returning from the DL), he gave up only three runs on 12.2 innings pitched. Over the last seven days, the Brewers’ offense ranks in the bottom third in runs, batting average, OBP, and slugging, so hopefully Gray can take advantage of this struggling offense in his home park.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/20/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. Washington Nationals): $14,200. It is close to impossible not to start Kershaw every time he steps on the mound. He is averaging 30.1 points per game this season on DraftKings. He currently owns a 19-1 strikeout to walk ratio, so he should provide plenty of points every time he steps on the mound. In 155 career at bats against Kershaw, the Nationals’ offense is batting .219, with 48 strikeouts, and a .265 OBP.

 

P- Drew Smyly (vs. Cleveland Indians): In 77 career at bats against Smyly, the Indians’ offense is batting .195, with 24 strikeouts, and a .249 OBP. He struggled over the past month or so, but he dominated his last time out, in which he struck out 12 batters over seven innings.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/19/16

P- Jacob deGrom (vs. Atlanta Braves): $11,300. deGrom has had some pretty bad luck recently when it comes to run support, but this hasn’t affected how well he has pitched. In his last five starts, he has four quality starts and he dominated the Pirates’ over his last two starts. In six career starts against the Braves, deGrom owns a 3-2 record with a 1.89 ERA.

 

P- Mike Fiers (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $6,500. Fiers is coming off one of his best starts of the season, in which he gave up two runs and five hits against the Rays in seven innings of work. He is pitching at home, which is very good. He owns a 3.67 ERA at home, compared to a 6.19 ERA on the road. In 67 career at bats against Fiers, the Reds’ lineup is batting .179, with one home run, seven XBH, 10 RBIs, 14 strikeouts, and a .242 OBP.

Elite P- Danny Salazar (vs. Chicago White Sox)

Elite P- Steven Matz (vs. Atlanta Braves)

Bargain P- Matt Moore (vs. San Francisco Giants)

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/17/16

P- Matt Harvey (vs. Atlanta Braves): $10,300. Harvey finally looks like he has turned it around. In his last three starts, he has only allowed two runs in 20 innings while striking out 17. He is facing a very bad Atlanta Brave offense, so he should continue his recent success. There are lots of other elite options for pitching today, but I think Harvey provides to most value at his price.

 

P- Julio Urias (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $7,600. Milwaukee has struggled against left-handed pitching this year, so this is great for Urias. Urias struggled in his first few starts, but he has gotten better every start. He will be pitching in his home stadium, against a pretty bad lineup, so this should be a favorable matchup for Urias. Urias is currently sporting an 11.1 strikeout rate per nine innings pitched, which should net some good points on DraftKings.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/16/16

P- Tanner Roark (vs. San Diego Padres): $10,300. Roark is by far the best pitching matchup on the slate for Thursday. He is facing a San Diego Padres offense that has struggled all season, and more importantly, recently. Over the last seven games, the Padres are batting .229 (25th overall), with 23 runs (26th overall), and a .286 OBP (28th overall). He will also be pitching at PetCo Park, which is known as a pitchers’ park. In 2016, Roark owns a 5-4 record, with 73 strikeouts, and a 2.93 ERA.

 

P- Dan Straily (vs. Atlanta Braves): $9,200. Honestly, I think any pitcher is a good start against the Atlanta Braves. Unless I’m stepping on that mound, you should feel comfortable that any MLB pitcher has a good shot at taking care of the Atlanta offense. In Straily’s last 10 starts, he has gone at least six innings in nine of those starts. He has gone at least seven innings in three of his last four starts. So far this season, he is 4-2, with 64 strikeouts, and a 3.15 ERA.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/15/16

P- Corey Kluber (vs. Kansas City Royals): $13,100. This matchup almost looks too good to be true. Kluber has been very successful as of late. He is coming off his second complete game of the season, in which he gave up only three hits, with eight strikeouts against the Angels. He has gone at least six innings in his last six starts. He has also dominated the Royals throughout his career. In 240 career at bats against Kluber, the Royals’ offense is batting .204, with 60 strikeouts, and a .235 OBP.

 

P- Sonny Gray (vs. Texas Rangers): $7,100. Gray has really excelled in his first two starts since returning from the disabled list. In his first start, he threw five innings against the Astros giving up five hits, one run, and five strikeouts. In his second outing, he faced the Reds, in which he gave up five hits, two runs, and four strikeouts in 7.2 innings pitched. Gray does face a tough offense, but he is pitching at his home park, which is always a good sign. In 176 career at bats against Gray, the Rangers’ lineup is batting .210, with 34 strikeouts, and a .291 OBP.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/14/16

P- Madison Bumgarner (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $13,800. Bumgarner is the top pitcher on the slate for Tuesday and for good reason. First of all, he is facing the 21st ranked offense of the Brewers. Second, he is 7-2 this season, with a 1.88 ERA, and 99 strikeouts in 86 innings pitched. Third, he is pitching in his home park. Fourth, he will probably hit a home run to bolster his lead at some point in the game. This guy can do it all.

 

P- Brandon Finnegan (vs. Atlanta Braves): $8,100. Finnegan has been on a roll as of late. In hist past four starts, he has thrown at least 6.1 innings in each start. He now has seven quality starts in his 13 total outings this season. He will be facing one of the worst offenses in baseball on Tuesday, so this shouldn’t pose a threat to Finnegan’s hot streak.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/13/16

P- Jerad Eickhoff (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $8,700. Over his last five starts, Eickoff owns a 2.76 ERA. He is facing a struggling Blue Jays’ offense on Monday. Over the last seven games, the Blue Jays are batting only .221. In 12 starts this year, Eickhoff has a 3.68 ERA, 62 strikeouts, and 15 walks in 73.1 innings pitched.

 

P- Zack Greinke (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $11,200. Greinke will be facing his old team on Monday. In only 42 career at bats against Greinke, the Dodgers’ lineup is batting .238, with 9 strikeouts, and a .273 OBP. Over the last seven days, the Los Angeles Dodgers are only batting .208, which is ranked 29th in Major League Baseball.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/12/16

P- Steven Matz (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $10,700. Earlier this season, Matz dominated the Brewers over seven innings, giving up two runs, and striking out eight. He lost his first start in eight starts this week, so he should be hungry to get back to his winning ways against a very average team.

P- Cole Hamels (vs. Seattle Mariners): $8,500. Hamels has already made one start against the Mariners this year and it was a good one. In seven innings, he only gave up two runs, while striking out eight. The Mariners offense has been very good recently, but a veteran pitcher like Hamels should be able to shut them down. At only $8,500, Hamels could be a steal.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/11/16

P- Chris Archer (vs. Houston Astros): $10,400. I’m taking a pretty big risk here, but Archer’s strikeout ability and the Astros free swinging bats could be a great combination for this matchup. In Archer’s last start, he struck out 12 batters in six innings pitched, so hopefully he can transfer this success to Saturday. In 64 career at bats against Archer, the Astros’ lineup is batting .172, with only two XBH, 22 strikeouts, and a .229 OBP. The Houston Astros are currently ranked last overall in strikeouts, with 605 strikeouts, which is 40 more than the second place team.

 

P- Eduardo Rodriguez (vs. Minnesota Twins): $7,100. E-Rod has only had two starts since returning from an injury, but they have been against some very difficult offenses, the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays. He will face a much easier offense on Saturday, the Minnesota Twins. In his one career start against the Twins, the Twins recorded 24 at bats, with only one run, seven strikeouts, and a .125 BA. The Twins offense is currently ranked 26th overall in runs, 19th overall in batting average, and 22nd in on base percentage.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/10/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. San Francisco Giants): $13,900. In 237 career at bats against Kershaw, the Giants’ offense is batting .148, with 76 strikeouts, and only 10 walks, with a .189 OBP. Kershaw has been absolutely dominant all year long and regardless of his high price, he is a must start. In 12 starts, he is 8-1, with a 1.46 ERA, 54 hits against, 109 strikeouts, and only 6 walks in 92.2 innings pitched.

 

P- Ian Kennedy (vs. Chicago White Sox): $9,300. In 78 career at bats against Kennedy, the White Sox’ offense is batting .244, with 20 strikeouts, five RBIs, and a .272 OBP. The White Sox offense has also struggled quite a bit recently. In the past seven days, the White Sox rank 28th in runs scored (20), 27th in batting average (.212), and 21st in OBP (.300).

Biggest Day One Steal Of The MLB Draft

There were many people who fell in the draft on day one, but A.J. Puk might have been the biggest steal of them all. Many believed Puk would go 1st overall to the Philadelphia Phillies, but instead he slipped to 6th overall to the Oakland Athletics. He has the tangible and intangible assets to be a star in Major League Baseball.

 

 

Puk has the body and and potential of a frontline starter. He stands 6’7 and weighs 230 lbs. This left-handed pitcher from the University of Florida has gained a lot of attention since he was a freshman. He has a plus-plus fastball and his secondary pitches all have the potential to be above average.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/9/16

P- Gio Gonzalez (vs. Chicago White Sox): $8,900. In 76 career at bats against Gonzalez, the White Sox are batting a cool .197, with one home run, three RBIs, 15 strikeouts, and a .291 OBP. The White Sox offense has struggled recently. In their last seven games, the White Sox are ranked 27th in runs scored (22), 25th in batting average (.210), and 22nd in on base percentage (.303).

 

Based on the Sox recent struggles and Gio’s career success, this should be a good matchup on Thursday. There is a really good chance of rain for this game tomorrow, so check the weather forecast prior to his start. If the game does get postponed, check the “other hot starts” for other options.

 

P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $6,900. The pitching match-ups are very limited on Thursday because there are only nine games being played. Colon has been very solid all year, but he won’t put up elite points. Luckily, he is playing the 24th ranked offense in baseball.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/8/16

P- Yu Darvish (vs. Houston Astros): $11,000. Darvish won’t go incredibly deep into games, but that is okay because of his elite strikeout rates. He is facing the Houston Astros on Wednesday, whom have the worst strikeout rate in baseball. In Darvish’s first two starts since returning from Tommy John Surgery, he owns a 2-0 record, 3.38 ERA, and 12 strikeouts in 10.2 innings pitched.

 

P- Archie Bradley (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $7,700. Bradley is coming off one of his best starts in his career last week. In six innings pitched against a dangerous Chicago Cubs offense, he have up four hits, one earned run, three walks, and 10 strikeouts. Hopefully Bradley can carry over that success to Wednesday when he faces a much easier opponent.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/7/16

P- Jacob deGrom (vs. Pittsburgh Pirates): $9,500. In the last seven games, the Pirates offense is only batting .230, which is ranked 22nd in Major League Baseball. While the Pirates do have a solid lineup, an elite arm like deGrom should be able to handle them. At only $9,500, deGrom could be a steal.

P- Joe Ross (vs. Chicago White Sox): $9,700. In the past seven games, the White Sox offense has been absolutely brutal. They are batting 202, which is the third worst in baseball. They have also only scored 21 runs, which is the second worst in baseball. Joe Ross has the ability to put up huge strikeout numbers and really dominate a struggling team such as the White Sox.

Typically I post a lineup that fits the cash limits of DraftKings, but I will be on a plane to Los Angeles today (going to see Clayton Kershaw pitch!), so I have decided to post an article with multiple options.

 

P- Jose Fernandez (vs. Miami Marlins): Fernandez has been on fire recently. So far in 2016, he has thrown 67.2 innings, with an 8-2 record, 2.53 ERA, 50 hits against, 96 strikeouts, and 25 walks. The Mets are currently ranked 27th overall in run production, so Fernandez shouldn’t have any problems shutting down their offense.

 

P- Corey Kluber (vs. Kansas City Royals): In 216 career at bats against Kluber, the Royals’ lineup is batting .218, with four home runs, 22 RBIs, 52 strikeouts, and a .245 OBP. Kluber did struggle in his last start (7 IP, 6 ER, 6 Ks), but prior to that start, he had two quality starts. Based on his past success against the Royals, he could be a very solid option on Sunday.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/4/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. Atlanta Braves): $14,100. I don’t care how expensive Kershaw is, he is a must start against one of the worst offenses in baseball. In 104 career at bats against Kershaw, the Braves’ offense is batting .240, with 35 strikeouts, and a .288 OBP.

Kershaw is currently on pace for one of the best seasons in baseball by a pitcher in a long time. In his 86.2 innings pitched in 2016, he owns a 7-1 record, 1.56 ERA, 51 hits against, 105 strikeouts, and only 5 walks.

 

P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Miami Marlins): $7,000. In 262 career at bats, the Marlins’ offense is batting .279 with a .287 OBP. In his last 10 starts, Colon has given up more than three runs in only one of those starts. He won’t put up elite numbers, but he is a very viable option for solid statistics.

P – Jesse Hahn (vs. Houston Astros): $7,200. In 43 career at bats against Hahn, the Astros’ offense is batting .163 against Hahn, with one home run, three RBIs, 11 strikeouts, and a .217 OBP.

The Astros have the worst strikeout rate in baseball, so Hahn could put up quite a few K’s, which is a great source of points on DraftKings.

P – Gio Gonzalez (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $8,800. In 63 at bats against Gio, the Reds’ offense is batting .190, with two home runs, eight RBIs, 17 strikeouts, and a .264 OBP.

Gio Gonzalez has been very consistent in 2016, so he should be able to handle a struggling Reds’ offense. So far in 2016, Gio is 3-3, with a 3.57 ERA, 53 strikeouts, and 17 walks in 58 innings pitched.

I will be flying to Arizona on June 1st, so I won’t be able to update my daily fantasy article with DraftKings’ prices. Due to this inconvenience,

I will list multiple players of interest for each position. This article was written using seasonal statistics compiled on May 31st. 

If you have any questions or comments about this article or fantasy baseball, please Tweet me @dynasty_digest. Please follow my blog for daily updates on my daily fantasy baseball rosters for DraftKings (dynastydigest.sportsblog.com).

P- Madison Bumgarner (vs. Atlanta Braves): This is a must play on Thursday. One of the best pitchers in baseball is facing one of the worst offenses in the last few years. In 84 career at bats against Bumgarner, the Braves’ offense is batting g.262, with 13 strikeouts, one walk, and a .287 OBP. 

P- Zack Greinke (vs. Houston Astros): This could be a great matchup for Greinke. The Astros are known for striking out a bunch, so this could lead to a lot of points on DraftKings.

It is worth noting that the Astros’ offense has been pretty hot recently, so it could be a risky play. In 87 career at bats against Greinke, the Astros are batting .299, with three home runs, 25 strikeouts, and a .315 OBP.

P – Jaime Garcia (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,400. Garcia is facing the 23rd ranked Brewers’ offense on Wednesday. In 131 career at bats against Garcia, the Brewers’ offense is only batting .191, with two home runs, 12 RBIs, 29 strikeouts, and a .230 OBP. In the past seven days, the Brewers’ offense has struck out 73 times, which is the third worst in Major League Baseball.

P-  Masahiro Tanaka (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): Tanaka will be facing the 24th ranked Blue Jays’ offense on Wednesday. In 81 career at bats against Tanaka, the Blue Jays are batting .198, with three home runs, seven RBIs, 27 strikeouts, and a .252 OBP. The Yankees are 6.5 games out of first place, so these divisional games are a must-win, which should have Tanaka fired up.
