FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Infielders
Matt Wieters- C vs Jon Lester
If you’re not paying up for Lester, Wieters is an intriguing option for a cheap prices at pitching tonight. He’s also had success against him in the past with 16 hits in 47 ABs (.340 BA) with 12 singles, 3 double, and even a triple. Watch out though as he does have 13 Ks so he might be only a GPP play.
Albert Pujols- 1B vs Clayton Kershaw
Now you might be calling me crazy but Fanduel prices all the bats down when Kershaw is pitching. Pujols is only $2,200 on FD and has dominated Kershaw in the past. Kershaw has given up a ton of home runs this season which isn’t like him and this is a guy who has had lots of success. In all of their matchups, Pujols has 12 hits in 31 ABs (.387 BA) with 8 singes and 4 doubles. Super cheap, super exciting play here.
Kendrys Morales- 1B vs Ubaldo Jimenez
Jimenez is terrible, Morales is on an offensive power team and playing in a great ball park. Lifetime he’s 7 for 21 (.333 BA) with 3 singles and 2 doubles along with 2 HRs. This feels like another HR night out of Morales.
FanDuel & DraftKings DFS Outfielders
Jacoby Ellsbury- OF vs James Shields
James Shields is cooked, he’s done. He’s just trotting out there at this point to collect a paycheck. I have no clue how he is still on a team but a Yankees’ stack seems plausible against a BP pitching. He doesn’t have outstanding numbers against him and he’s just coming off the DL but Ellsbury has 14 hits in 66 ABs (.212 BA) with 10 singles, 2 doubles and 2 HRs.
Adam Jones- OF vs J.A. Happ
I like this matchup because while Happ has been serviceable, he’s still coming in with a losing record, a 3.83 ERA with only 39 Ks in 44.2 IP. Jones has 9 hits in 37 ABs (.243 BA) with 6 singles, a double, and 2 HRs. He’s a cheap option tonight to pay up for pitching.
Ryan Braun- OF vs Homer Bailey
Which Braun will we get? Will he play or will he sit? Can I continue this rhyme? Me thinks he may homer this time. But in all seriousness, Braun is in a terrific matchup and let’s not forget that his lone start this season he had -13 Fanduel FP. He has an 0-1 record, 43.20 ERA, only 2 Ks, a .540 whip and only lasted 1.2 innings. Don’t expect much better in Great American Small Park tonight.
