MLB DFS Plays: Wednesday

Wednesday, September 12, 2018


This article aims to find the best overall MLB DFS Plays and Bargains to help you construct a cash-worthy lineup. The following write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, meaning injury information, weather, and lineup cards could alter the fantasy landscape. Checking starting lineups and scanning our MLB Headlines Feed should keep you in the loop.

 

 

Keep in mind that we are looking towards the main evening slate starting at 7:05 ET.

 

 

 

PITCHER

 

David Price – Boston (vs Toronto)

 

I’ll be backing David Price in cash games tonight, as he has one of the best floor/ceiling/matchup/salary combinations of the evening slate. Price has been great lately, allowing two or less earned runs in four of his past five starts. He has also recorded seven or more strikeouts in three of those outings. His most recent appearance (last Friday vs Houston) of 10 strikeouts, two earned runs, two hits allowed through 6.1 innings is particularly impressive – considering it came against Houston’s intimidating offense in Fenway Park. Price should be able to pin down the Jays tonight.

 

 

Also Consider: Aaron Nola, Carlos Rodon

 

 

 

Editor’s Note: Compete in a live fantasy baseball snake draft right now! Drafts take as little as 2 minutes to complete and last just one night.

CATCHER / FIRST BASE

 

Mitch Moreland – Boston (vs Toronto)

 

Boston unsurprisingly checks in with the highest run-scoring projection of this evening slate. They’ll enjoy the hitter-friendly dimensions of Fenway Park while facing Toronto RHP Aaron Sanchez, who has allowed 14 earned runs and 24 hits over 14.1 innings since a two-month stint on the disabled list. Sanchez is particularly generous to left-handed bats, owning a .369 wOBA split in that department. As a result, you’ll want to take a strong look at Moreland, Benintendi, Devers, and Bradley Jr.

 

 

Also Consider: Luke Voit, Ian Desmond, Jose Abreu

 

 

 

SECOND BASE

 

Jonathan Villar – Batimore (vs Oakland)

 

Oakland will start RHP Liam Hendriks in a “bullpen game” that should inspire several opportunities for red-hot Baltimore infielder Jonathan Villar. The switch-hitter has been heating up with 12 hits, three homers, eight RBI, six runs, and three steals over his past eight games. Villar is always a threat for multiple hits, steals, and runs with some capable power upside to boot.

 

 

Also Consider: Ian Kinsler, Ketel Marte

 

 

 

THIRD BASE

 

Rafael Devers – Boston (vs Toronto)

 

Take everything I mentioned in Moreland’s write-up, and directly apply it to Devers. The Boston third baseman has struggled in recent games, but a breakout performance could be in store against shaky Toronto RHP Aaron Sanchez and his .369 wOBA vs left-handed bats. This is an excellent buy-low opportunity for only $2800 on FanDuel.

 

 

Also Consider: Eduardo Escobar, Jurickson Profar

 

 

 

SHORTSTOP

 

Didi Gregorius – NY Yankees (at Minnesota)

 

Despite taking the loss last night, Gregorius came up huge for the Yankees (and fantasy backers) with a triple, grand slam, and 44.4 total fantasy points. He’ll look to continue his domination in this series against vulnerable Minnesota RHP Jake Odorizzi, who has coughed up eight earned runs through 10 innings over his past two starts.

 

 

Also Consider: Tim Anderson, Marcus Semien

 

 

 

OUTFIELD

 

Andrew McCutchen – NY Yankees (at Minnesota)

 

McCutchen has been heating up for the Pinstripes with four hits, two homers, five RBI, and plenty of walks over his past five games. As mentioned in the previous write-up, Minnesota RHP Jake Odorizzi has struggled as of late. The Twins’ bullpen creates non-imposing matchups in the later innings as well. You’ll probably want to look towards the Boston and NY Yankee offenses tonight, and McCutchen makes for a solid pick through all formats within that.  

 

 

Avisail Garcia – Chicago White Sox (at Kansas City)

 

If you recall, we loved picking on Kansas City LHP Eric Skoglund early in the season. He carries an exploitable 6.45 ERA and .386 wOBA vs right-handed hitters. I’m taking a strong look at Jose Abreu, Tim Anderson, and Avisail Garcia through all formats. Garcia has a comfortable $2500 salary on FanDuel to open up plenty of cap space elsewhere. He has racked up nine hits, two homers, seven RBI over his past seven games – and tonight’s favorable draw sets the table for more.

 

 

Also Consider: Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Hicks, Nomar Mazara, Jackie Bradley Jr.
