MLB DFS Pitcher Chart & Lineup Advice – 6/15/2017
Last Updated: 6/15/2017 – 9:01 AM CT
Sale is the biggest favorite, has the lowest OTT (see pitcher chart), and has the highest strikeout percentage on the slate. He’s traveling into the National League and will face Nick Pivetta instead of a DH. Sale is $14,100, but I can’t see how you fade him in cash games.
Gonzalez will travel to Citi Field to face the Mets. I like targeting lefties against the Mets because many of the Mets best hitters hit from the left side of the plate. The Mets have the 11th highest strikeout percentage against lefties, and rank 20th in wRC+. I don’t know if I can pair Gonzalez with Sale due to his $9,000 price tag, but I’ll strongly consider Gonzalez in tournaments.
Game log watchers will see three single-digit fantasy point performance over his last four and will avoid Verlander. I see a $7,600 price tag and will be all over Verlander in both cash games and tournaments. He’s one of the biggest favorites on the slate, and will face a Rays team who strikes out 25.7% of the time against righties. I realize Verlander hasn’t pitched well this year and has a high OTT, but I’ll need to save money at SP2, and Verlander has a ton of upside in this matchup.
I’m interested in quite a few Coors bats in tournaments, but I’m only attacking three strong values in cash games. Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford are cash game locks for me at their cheap prices. I’m also very interested in Carlos Gonzalez in cash games for $3,600 even without the platoon advantage against Matt Moore. Buster Posey and Nolan Arenado are my favorite tournament plays from this game, but I’m not sure I’ll pay up for them in cash games.
I’m on the Tigers again today, especially Miguel Cabrera. He costs just $3,400, so he’s basically a pure value play even though he’s projected for more than 10 DK points. Ian Kinsler is also in consideration for cash games at $3,600. One of my favorite tournament plays on the day is J.D. Martinez as part of a Tigers stack. He costs just $4,400, has a high home run projection, and should be able to drive in some runs as well.
Cody Bellinger is too expensive for cash games, but if you’re fading Sale, I love Bellinger as a tournament play.
Brandon Moss is too cheap. He might not be a cash game option, but for $2,800, he’s a great tournament punt.
