MLB DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Picks

Slate SUmmary

  • Game 3 for the Padres vs Phillies series and we are tied 1-1. We are down to only 4 teams so we will have a lot of single slate games moving forward.
  • The Phillies are much better at home and although they face Musgrove, their pricing allows you to build a solid lineup for cash games. Starting with my favorite player on both sites, I currently have Nick Castellanos in both my top builds. Projected to bat 5th for 6.5k and 7.4k, he grades out as the top value play.
  • At MVP, it’s a tricky one today but currently, I have Schwarber there. Players like Harper, Soto or even Machado are all viable plays but a build I feel comfortable about lands on Schwarber as the MVP. He hasn’t been hitting the ball well but still managed to get 12+ fpts in his last 4 games. He provides a relatively safe floor but also has that ceiling upside.
  • If you played my core plays yesterday on DraftKings, both pitchers exceeded expectations in a playoff game. Pitchers have a safer floor than hitters and that’s your main goal in cash games. I like both Musgrove and Suarez today but in the UTIL spot.
