MLB DFS 8-12-21




Omar Narvaez- Love his match-up against Hendricks R/L matchup. He’s coming off of a 30 FP game against the Cubs Last night. He’s batting .290/.377/.463 with 11 homers and 39 RBI across 318 plate appearances.

Buster Posey- Fantastic Matchup against Marquez here. Marquez giving up a .428 wOBA against righties and Posey is coming off 3 fantastic games getting 17, 27, and 15 FP on DK respectively.


Best Value Plays:


Austin Nola

Travis d’Arnaud

Mike Zunino




Matt Olson- Absolutely cannot get away from this match-up against Eli Morgan. Morgan gives up hard contact% at 46% against Lefties and Olson mashes righty pitchers. Love me an OAK stack.

Freddie Freeman- He is expensive on DK but love a Braves stack here. He’s hitting .294 and crushes RHP with a .405 wOBA. Gutierrez has been hit hard by lefties and we can take advantage today.


Best Value Plays:


Albert Pujols

Ty France

Brandon Belt





Jonathan Schoop- Fantastic match-up against Means. While Means did shut the Tigers down last time out, Schoop does hit lefties quite well and makes a cheaper option over on FD over DK on this slate. Looking at his game logs, Schoop has double digit FP against LHP for over a month straight now.


Kolten Wong- he has had Hendricks’ number his entire career. He has the best BvP match-up of all hitters today. 16 for 45 (.356 BA) with 3 doubles, 2 HRs, and only 5 strikeouts. 



Best Value Plays:


Hoy Park

Jed Lowrie

Abraham Toro





Kyle Seager- So if you’re not taking a flier on Folty today, look towards a SEA stack. Seager is a fantastic lefty bat that hits RHP quite well. Seager has a 48% hard contact rate against terrible RHP.

Nolan Arenado- Comes into this game with 22 HRs and 68 RBIS. He has a match-up against JT Brubaker but will be at the top of my 3B player pool on our cheatsheet.


Best Value Plays:


Asdrubal Cabrera

Rougned Odor

Tommy La Stella




J.P. Crawford- super cheap option here but like his match-up against Folty. If you couldn’t tell the trend here is the SEA stack for today.
Xander Bogaerts- So we just saw the 20 run output from the Sox last night, but going back to the well here with Bogaerts. He is expensive, but I can’t get away from him for this slate against Rasmussen or the bullpen arms the Rays will throw out there today.

Best Value Plays:


Kevin Newman

Didi Gregorius

Ha-seong Kim




Mitch Haniger
Starling Marte
Anthony Santander
Cedric Mullins
Austin Hays
Mark Canha
Eloy Jimenez
Robbie Grossman
Tommy Pham
Jesse Winker
J.D. Martinez
Nick Castellanos
Aaron Judge

Best Value Plays:


DJ Stewart
Jarren Duran
Victor Robles
Andrew Vaughn
Harrison Bader
Hunter Renfroe
Jacob Robson

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
