FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Pitchers

Jose Berrios (FD: $9,600 , DK: $10,700)
People might be scared off of using him since he’s going up against the mighty Red Sox but they were beat by the Angels and Berrios is better pitcher than anyone on the Angels and makes a terrific SP2 or just straight GPP play on Fanduel tonight at this price.
Carlos Carrasco (FD: $9,900, DK: $11,600)
Career vs Current Rangers Roster
AVG: 0.242 [22 for 91], BABIP: 0.293, K%: 29.9, BB%: 4.1

FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Infielders
Joey Votto- 1B vs. Michael Wacha (FD: $4,100, DK: $4,800)
We love this play today as he’s had some great success against Wacha in the past. Votto has 12 hits in 32 ABs (.375 BA) including 6 singles, 4 doubles, 1 triple and 1 HR with only 1 K. Votto has only had 1 game with 0 FP in the month of June. That’s just crazy! He’s pretty expensive and in the odd early slate so really the only way to play him is if you play the All Day slate.
Nolan Arenad0- 3B vs. Jeff Samardzija (FD: $4,100, DK: $5,100)
For this price tag you’d think he was playing in Coors but this game is in San Francisco. With a small 8 game slate though you have to take what you can. He’s not even the most expensive 3B option on the slate he’s actually priced lower than Jake Lamb and Jose Ramirez. Lifetime against Shark he has 10 hits in 23 ABs (.435 BA) with 6 singles, 3 doubles and 1 triple. Fire him up if you’re paying down for some pitching like Montgomery tonight.
Scooter Gennett- 2B vs. Michael Wacha (FD: $2,700, DK: $4,400)
He’s clearly a value play more over at Fanduel but any lefties against Wacha could mean cash monies tonight. Scoot is 7 for 22 (.318 BA) with 6 singles and a double and can give you salary relief if you’re paying up at pitching tonight.
FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Outfielders
Ian Desmond- OF vs Jeff Samardzija (FD: $2,800, DK: $4,000)
On the outside looking in Desmond has been terrible this season but he did have positive FP in Sunday’s slate. He’s also had success against Shark going 8 for 18 (.444 BA) with 4 singles, 3 doubles, and a HR. I like him more as a GPP play on FD at that price than on DK.
David Peralta- OF vs Nick Pivetta (FD: $3,500, DK: $5,200)
Before Sunday’s stinker of 0 FP he had 10 games in a row of positive FP. He’s facing Nick Pivetta who comes into this matchup with a 1-3 record, 4.46 ERA, and a 1.79 WHIP. Another plus is this will be played in Arizona which is a very HR prone ball park and that bodes well for Peralta tonight.
Joc Pederson- OF vs Ricky Nolasco (FD: $3,400, DK: $4,300)
Let’s face it, Joc is no Bellinger but he does possess the HR ability just as Bellinger. He’s facing Nolasco who comes into this matchup with a 2-9 record, 5.23 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. Young Joc comes in with a measly .225 BA with 6 HRs so he could be overlooked and you could get him with lower ownership and a terrific GPP play tonight.
Rockies vs Jeff Samardzija
Yankees vs David Holmberg
Diamondbacks vs Nick Pivetta
Nationals vs Eddie Butler
