Last nights FanDuel MLB DFS Picks reeled in a few good profits as we chose the correct beginning pitcher that gave us.
Buehler hurled six innings of shutout baseball to go along with eight strikeouts and notching the victory of their NLDS series. Needless to say, Buehler also notched a top excellent start as he mowed throughout the Nats offense.
Our four-man Braves stack was productive, but we were rescued by an overdue Freddie Freeman house run by a flop that is notable. John Donaldson scored a run recorded an RBI and was also struck by a pitch while Nick Markakis doubled and scored a run. But, Matt Joyce was not able to give us and was held to a zero.
Our Dodgers stack was solid, yet unspectacular. Justin Turner led the way with a run scored a single and a stolen base while Chris Taylor singled and walked twice. We werent given much by corey Seager .
Ultimately, our baseman, Kolten Wong, was very good as he walked, doubled, singled and walked in 2 runs. Wong was robbed of one in his early at-bat on a diving catch by center fielder Ronald Acuna Jr.. .
It was a great dip back evening after a flop about Wednesday night, and I will look to make it lucrative nights on this slate that is major!
P — Stephen Strasburg (WAS) — $10,100 vs. LAD
Instead of last night once I went with a money line, tonights lineup is going to be geared more towards GPPs like I will be using Stephen Strasburg since he takes on the powerful Los Angeles Dodgers at tonights Game 2 of the NLDS from Dodgers Stadium. While Strasburg threw 34 pitches of aid from Tuesdays Wild Card win, manager Dave Martinez chalked it up as equal to what he would do in between begins, so Strasburg should be able to manage a complete workload in this one and I am not worried about some other innings or pitch limits, particularly with the leagues 29th-ranked bullpen behind him along with the two Max Scherzer and Patrick Corbin inaccessible to piggyback off of him. Strasburg has already been dominant this year as he has pitched into a 3.32 ERA, 3.25 FIP along with a 3.17 zFIP to go along with a stout 10.80 K/9 speed. He has carried that victory to the street and hes posted a 3.39 ERA, 3.23 FIP along with a 3.45 xFIP outside Nationals Park to move along with a fine 10.18 K/9. What I like here is that present Dodgers bats are hitting only .189 off of Strasburg using a combined .706 OPS, so he is not scared to go up from the temptations of the Dodgers. With the Nats underdogs along with the Dodgers among the best offenses in baseball, I really like Strasburg on this four-game slate as a GPP play.
C/1B — Paul Goldschmidt (STL) — $3,800 vs. ATL
The Cardinals took Game 1 in the Braves in Atlanta and I think they have an excellent chance of carrying Game 2 and they shoot on right-hander Mike Foltynewicz who endured a rocky regular season that included a visit to the minors. Foltynewicz finished the regular season with a 4.54 ERA, 4.97 FIP and a 4.73 xFIP to go together with a however 1.77 HR/9. Now, he was excellent in September with a 1.50 ERA around 30 innings of work, therefore he is feeling it penetrating this one, but I think the Cardinals offense is riding loads of confidence into this 1 tonight. Goldschmidt should surely be driving loads of confidence within this contest as he started a homer in the nights upset win off of Dallas Keuchel because his torrid second half persists. Goldschmidt fought in the first half with his new group, however he submitted that a big-time .271 ISO, .886 OPS, .365 wOBA and 128 wRC+ because the All-Star fracture — generation that we are utilised to watching from the first baseman. That marks back-to-back matches with a home run and four home runs over his final six games. His bat was best against lefties, but Im prepared to pay up against a righty as hes red-hot entering this one to spare.
2B — Kolten Wong (STL) — $2,600 vs. ATL
Though he can hit lefties well, Wong had been moved down the lineup to the seven hole, but he might very well go back up into the two-hole tonight against the right-handed starter Foltynewicz — even a pitcher he has enjoyed lots of success against in his profession. At the regular season, Wong submitted a .797 OPS, .339 wOBA and 111 WRC+ from right-wing pitching. Furthermore, his very best job — by far — has been performed on the road where he posted a .212 ISO, .922 OPS, .384 wOBA and 137 wRC+ in contrast to just an 80 wRC+ in the home. He hit righties for a .209 ISO, .925 OPS, .385 wOBA and 141 wRC+ around the road. We do get a soda with Wong since he homered 11 days in the regular season, but also plenty of stolen foundation upside because he swiped 24 bases on the season, 20 of which came from a pitcher. Last night marked three games using a multi-hit match in two of those three competitions with a bang for Wong. Wong has also been operating lots on the bases of late since hes swiped four bases over his past eight games, but he has also attempted six steals in that moment. Finally, he has owned Foltynewicz in their history against one another as he has gone 5 for 11 (.455) with three doubles, a homer and a stolen base . If he can really hit from that two-hole I am absolutely loving cross-category and the worth upside tonight.
3B — Matt Carpenter (STL) — $2,900 vs. ATL
All told, it was a disappointing season for Carpenter, particularly in contrast to previous seasons, since he homered just 15 days in 129 games and submitted a .166 ISO that fell well under the .266 mark he posted while still homering 36 times only last season. Carpenter did not receive the beginning last night against the lefty, but he must co against the righty. His best work came from righties, with an elevated .177 ISO, but I am liking Carpenter for another reason: recency. As noted, his year was mostly a battle, however, Carpenter moves these marching coming off the very best month of his season as he submitted a .233 ISO, .866 OPS, .364 wOBA and 127 wRC+ at the month of September. Carpenter homered twice on his final three regular season matches, and weve seen this man go on several serious stretches of residence run production in the past. I hope the final games of the regular season began a stretch. Carpenter has also enjoyed some success from a power standpoint against Foltynewicz as hes gone for 12 (.250) with a homer and a double from the right-hander. I think we could get some nice value .
SS — Paul DeJong (STL) — $3,100 vs. ATL
We are finishing a four-man Cardinals pile in a rush as DeJong is a real fine choice at shortstop as somebody who has hit Foltynewicz for power before. It was a nice regular year from DeJong from a power standpoint as he struck a career-high 30 home runs and submitted a .211 ISO about the year as well. On top of the 30 home runs, we also have some stolen foundation upside here as DeJong swiped nine bases on the year. We have seen a skill from the righty-swinging DeJong to hit right-handed pitching well in the past and that he did so again this season with a few notable reverse-splits. DeJong posted a .228 ISO, .783 OPS, .329 wOBA and also a 104 wRC+ against right-handed pitching this season. Additionally, he published a massive .292 ISO, .875 OPS, .359 wOBA and a 125 wRC+ to the road against righties. In laymans terms, DeJong hit 27 of the 30 home runs against a right-handed pitcher this year and six of the nine steals also came against a righty. Eventually, DeJong has gone for 10 (.300) having a double and a homer in his profession against Foltynewicz. He is likely to strike last in this stack, thus a large night from DeJong could indicate a big night for this particular four-man Cardinals heap.
OF — Nelson Cruz (MIN) — $4,300 vs. NYY
The Twins and Yankees kick their ALDS show tonight from Yankee Stadium and New York as the two best dwelling run-hitting clubs in the normal season. The Twins edged the Yankees at the home run department, thanks in part to this classic Nelson Cruz because he clubbed a whopping 41 home runs in only 120 games due to injury. Yes, that is great for an massive .328 ISO on this season. Cruz and the Twins will shoot on left wing James Paxton within this one, a pitcher that endured an up-and-down first year with the Yankees, but ended up with a 3.82 ERA, 3.86 FIP and 4.03 xFIP along with a 1.37 HR/9 rate. That said, I am simply going to roster a trio of players that hit lefties very well this year, and that surely starts with Cruz who posted some of, if not the very best figures I have seen against a left handed pitcher. Ready for it? Cruz posted an unworldly .461 ISO, 1.207 OPS, .464 wOBA and a 195 wRC+ from left-handed pitching this season. The numbers were really better at home in the pitcher-friendly Safeco Field, but let us not fret over his .319 ISO, 1.096 OPS, .436 wOBA along with 176 wRC+. Hes white-hot with the eight-game hitting streak entering this one using four home runs, three doubles and 11 RBI at the moment. I propose paying for the thunderous Cruz in this matchup.
OF — Marwin Gonzalez (MIN) — $2,900 vs. NYY
Next man up in our three-man Twins stack is Gonzalez who did not hit for a ton of home run power this year, but he sure enjoyed himself contrary to left-handed pitching. Gonzalez hit only 15 homers and published a .151 ISO in an injury-shortened 114-game year, even though everything was better against left handed pitching. Gonzalez hit .300 using a .167 ISO, .789 OPS, .332 wOBA along with also a 106 wRC+ against lefties this year compared to some .144 ISO, .715 OPS, .306 wOBA and 88 WRC+ vs righties. His bat was a tiny bit better in the street against lefties having a .796 OPS, .338 wOBA and 110 wRC+ in most scenarios like the one he sees himself at tonight. Id continue to keep a watch out for the Yankees confirmed lineup for this as Gonzalez overlooked the last week of the regular season with an undercover injury, however, hes supposedly all set for the Game 1 tonight. Before the injury, Gonzalez put a bad September behind him going 2 for 5 with a run and three RBI. He hit in seven of his last nine games prior to getting hurt, therefore his bat clearly started to turn . I really dont see him netting a huge amount of ownership tonight, so that he could offer us a boost with a few generation in this one.
OF — Matt Joyce (ATL) — $2,300 vs. STL
After picking Strasburg as my pitcher and meeting into both my Cardinals along with Twins piles, I had $2,500 left for an outfielder, and Im likely to go back into Matt Joyce despite a difficult matchup against Jack Flaherty who was one of, if not the best pitcher in baseball in the seasons second half. In reality, I believe although I really do find Joyce getting some ownership that will frighten many off of the Braves generally. Still, his work against right-handed pitching this season was once again solid as he posted a .298 typical, .871 OPS, .377 wOBA along with 131 wRC+ against righties about the year followed by a .176 ISO, .942 OPS, .403 wOBA and a 149 wRC+ against righties in SunTrust Park where this one happens tonight. Joyce had a tough night in the nights NLDS opener, something that may have people from him. Personally, with his enormous 16.4% walk speed at home against righties this year, I think Joyce has the patience that could even net him a few walks if his extra-base power doesnt appear. Regardless, he will not have to do a ton to strike value tonightbut well need him to place last night behind him and find a way to get on base at least once this evening.
UTIL — Jonathan Schoop (MIN) — $2,800 vs. NYY
Completing our Twins along with this lineup pile is Schoop was absolutely demolished pitching at the season while his power against lefties jumped onto the road. For the season as a whole, Schoop clobbered lefties to the tune of a .286 ISO, .917 OPS, .376 wOBA and also a 136 wRC+. Compared that to his 87 wRC+ against righties where the majority of his creation came out of this year, and we all know. However, down all the way jumped to .310 around the road against lefties to go together with a .907 OPS, .375 wOBA along with 135 wRC+ against them. In September, Schoop fought Following a August, however he notched a game with a double and a homer at the moment in 2 of his final four regular season contests. He notched a hit entering this particular one. I really dont like that Schoop has gone for 7 in his profession against Paxton, but his manner is the sort that could do plenty of damage with a single swing and flip those fortunes around — especially given his job against lefties here in 2019. The purchase price is right within this matchup against a lefty, so Ill take that this Twins to be anchored stack tonight by Schoop.
