MLB DFS Pitcher Chart & Lineup Advice – 7/1/2017
Last Updated: 7/1/2017 – 8:01 AM CT
Sale is priced at $13,500 tomorrow, but he is a must play for the early slate. He’ll face the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre, so he may give up a few runs, but there is safety with Sale due to his strikeouts. The Blue Jays strike out 20.8% of the time and have the tenth highest wRC+. It’s not a great matchup for Sale, but it’s so hard to fade him in cash games. In tournaments you can make a case to fade him, but there aren’t many quality pitching options to drop down to.
Gonzalez will get a park upgrade traveling to Busch Stadium to take on the Cardinals. He’s my favorite GPP play of the late slate. He’s priced at $11,700 on DraftKings, almost $2,000 more than his last start. I think the price tag will scare a people off of Gonzalez tomorrow. He’ll face the Cardinals who have the 12th highest strikeout percentage against lefties, and the fourth worst wRC+. Ownership really dictates this play for tournaments, but with few quality pitching options, I’m considering Gonzalez for cash games as well.
Anthony Rizzo – Rizzo is the top overall play today. He’ll have the platoon advantage against Jackson Stephens in a great ballpark. He’s expensive, but a solid play in both cash games and tournaments.
Manny Machado – Machado is way too cheap against Jake Odorizzi in Camden Yards. For $3,900 on DraftKings, you can lock Machado into your cash game lineups.
Miguel Cabrera – Josh Tomlin gives up quite a few home runs and Cabrera is underpriced at just $3,600 on DraftKings. He’s one of the top values on the slate.
Adam Jones/Mark Trumbo – While not as big of locks as Machado, it’s hard to fade Jones and Trumbo at their cheap prices. Odorizzi takes a big park downgrade, and the Orioles have a team run total of 5.5.
Yoenis Cespedes – Cespedes has the biggest home run projection on the slate. I’m not sure he’ll fit into my cash game lineup, but I love his upside for tournaments.
