FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – September 18th

The FanDuel MLB DFS Picks of last night only did not send after a superior. Verlander was again lights-out to the Astros, devoting six innings of shutout baseball to cooperate with eight strikeouts, earning the win in the process, his 19th of the season. Our bats did not follow suit. As Nick Ahmed ended up lost last night’s match with a cut on his 26, our three-man D-backs pile was cut into some. We did not get much at all by Wilmer Flores and Carson Kelly who joined for only a single and an RBI, both of which came from Flores while Kelly posted a zero even though the D-backs setting up six runs over the night. Our Braves stack. Freddie Freeman led the way and a run scored while Nick Markakis and Matt Joyce singled, Joyce’s coming with the RBI. Josh Donaldson gave us another zero. The matchups were fantastic and I was excited to subject these a high-upside lineup even though paying $12,000 for Verlander, but it wasn’t meant to be about this evening. Let’s turn our focus to the slate of tonight and determine if we can delight in a bounce night. P — Gerrit Cole (HOU) — $12,100 vs. TEX Once again, I can’t fade the pure strikeout upside of a Houston Astros right-hander as Gerrit Cole is far and away the best option on the masterpiece, as is the case on the vast majority of slates where he appears. After Verlander mastered the Rangers last night, it is Cole’s turn tonight as he completes this one wearing a 2.62 ERA on the season while his peripherals are really the finest in baseball with a 2.74 FIP and 2.54 xFIP too — simply outstanding amounts. Cole can be sporting superior strikeout amounts to that of his teammate Verlander a she’s punching opposing bats out in an eye-popping 13.66 K/9 figure. A Texas Rangers lineup enhances that strikeout upside as stated in yesterday’s piece. After whiffing eight times at Verlander previous night, the Rangers currently sport a greater 25.5percent strikeout speed against righties on the season, still the fifth-highest markers at the big leagues. Cole will carry a stretch in which he has reached double-digit strikeouts into this game tonight. Over his last few starts, Cole possesses a 0.82 ERA to go along with a 16.36 K/9 clip. There is simply no reason why people ought to be fading Cole at all at this point, small possess in this matchup against a strikeout-happy offense. C/1B — Dan Vogelbach (SEA) — $3,300 vs. PIT The Mariners are not my main pile tonight, however I really did want a little exposure to them against right-hander Dario Agrazal who owns a number of their worst peripheral numbers I have seen all year. His surface 4.91 ERA isn’t good, however his 6.01 FIP and also 6.22 xFIP are very bad and his 4.33 K/9 rate is minuscule. What’s more, Agrazal has been struck hard in the home this season with a 5.40 ERA at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, but he also owns a 6.11 FIP and also 6.63 xFIP in the home to go along with a brutal 1.40 K/BB rate. Because of this, let us get a few righty-mashers to this lineup in the Mariners tonight. He’s the best bat from righties of Seattle this year, even if he has slowed down as a white-hot start. Vogelbach possesses a .275 ISO, .874 OPS, .365 wOBA along with 132 wRC+ to the season against opposite-handed pitching. The good news is that he’s been improved on the street against righties outside of his pitcher-friendly home area. On the road, he’s bashed righties to the song of a .313 ISO, .922 OPS, .380 wOBA and 142 wRC+. After a August, he’s picked it back up in September with a .206 ISO, .812 OPS, .359 wOBA along with 128 wRC+. The house run upside is too great to resist the significant slugger in this matchup. 2B — Adam Frazier (PIT) — $2,800 vs. SEA Their competition is, while the Mariners are not my pile. It may surprise you to find the Pirates because the league’s ninth-ranked crime versus righties this year, also while Josh Bell and Starling Marte are a big portion of that rather than probably in tonight’s lineup — Bell will not be — I want to roll up a four-man Pirates stack thanks for their creation vs righties along with cost efficacy against a young right-wing pitcher in Justin Dunn. Dunn had an interesting MLB introduction in despite not allowing a bang and allowing two earned runs. The culprit was a large number five strikes. Dunn has fared well at Triple-A, however his confidence likely is at this level and I wish to make the most. Enter Frazier who might not game the maximum power in the planet, but his bat is nonetheless a productive one against right-handed pitching. He possesses a .786 OPS, .333 wOBA along with 105 wRC+ on the season versus righties, but those numbers improve into an .859 OPS, .364 wOBA along with 126 wRC+ at home versus righties. Frazier can be enjoying his very best month of the season — by far — in September with a .260 ISO, 1.027 OPS, .425 wOBA and 165 wRC+ to the month to this stage. I’ll choose the value upside down and run. 3B — Jose Osuna (PIT) — $2,800 vs. SEA Next man up in the Pirates stack is Osuna who had been usually utilized in recent years against left handed pitching, but this year his splits have reversed and he has crushed right-wing pitching. Osuna sports a .276 ISO vs righties to go along with an .899 OPS, .366 wOBA along with 127 wRC+. The numbers remain largely similar at home against righties where he possesses a .265 ISO, .864 OPS, .356 wOBA and 120 wRC+. Osuna has mostly fought in the month of September which is an but of a bummer, but when you enter his match logs there is a silver lining. Osuna includes a hit in five of the past six, including three doubles and six runs scored and has recorded a match in each of the past three competitions, in four of the last six. He has exhibited an ability to hit on pitching in the minors in recent seasons, and even while his past major league victory came mostly against lefties, the simple fact that he’s pummeling righties this year leaves him a lock in my Pirates heap tonight. SS — Kevin Newman (PIT) — $3,200 vs. SEA Like Frazier, Newman may not match exactly the power from the league but that brings a productive bad and a rate element. It’s not as if the energy is non-existent because he’d clubbed 10 long balls over the season, but his .134 ISO is not great and he hasn’t hit for much power whatsoever throughout his minor league career. That said, Newman has managed right-wing pitching well this year despite hitting against the side . He owns a .142 ISO, .834 OPS, .353 wOBA along with 118 wRC+ over the season vs righties. Six of the 10 home runs and 15 of the 20 doubles come against a pitcher. He is also hitting .326 versus righties on the season. What I like here is the stolen base upside given the simple fact he’s getting on base at a healthy .368 clip versus righties this year. 15 bases have been swiped by newman . Newman is red-hot at the plate. The man is really carrying a 19-game hit series to this one — if you count just his begins as he went hitless at a pinch-hit look in early September. For the entire month, he’s hitting .348 with an .890 OPS, .382 wOBA and 137 wRC+. Add it all up and there is a lot to enjoy about the Pirates’ shortstop in this . OF — Brian Reynolds (PIT) — $3,400 vs. SEA Completing our four-man Pirates heap is Reynolds who is having a major season with the Pirates after beginning the season in the Triple-A degree. After a white-hot start in the minors that included five homers and three steals in his first 13 games — and a gigantic 195 wRC+ to boot — Reynolds was summoned to the big leagues where the energy lasted and the remarkable general production. Reynolds has clubbed 16 homers and swiped three totes from 127 major league matches this year and his 136 wRC+ is still a huge number. The damage contrary to right-handed pitching is superior for its switch-hitting outfielder because he possesses a .198 ISO, .941 OPS, .396 wOBA and 146 wRC+ against righties on the season. The figures at home from righties are quite similar. The fantastic news for Reynolds is that he’s also having success against lefties as well, making him matchup-proof for the if the bullpen inevitably enters this game. After recording only one hit over a four-game elongate, Reynolds went 2 for 5 with 2 doubles, a run and an RBI on his latest outing. Let’s search for him to build off of the effort in this one tonight. OF — Jake Marisnick (HOU) — $2,200 vs. TEX My Mariners mini-stack becomes completed in the usefulness area of this lineup, and in the meantime I will be rostering a pair of cost-efficient outfielders which are of the one-off selection. That begins here with Marisnick since he attracts a rock-solid blend of power and speed to the lineup tongiht with 10 homers and 10 stolen bases around the campaign while playing in a part-time job with only 302 plate appearances on the season. The fantastic news here is that Marisnick’s greatest work not just comes against lefties — like he will face against Rangers southpaw Kolby Allard — but also against lefties in the home where this one is going to occur tonight at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The minimal batting average sucks down a number of the advanced amounts, however, Marisnick has hit lefties for a potent .206 ISO over this season. In addition, he possesses a huge .271 ISO in the home against lefties to go along with a .775 OPS, .323 wOBA and 104 wRC+. One downside here is that Marisnick has all 10 of his own foundations against right-handers this season, however the lefty Allard has enabled two steals in just 37.1 innings over the year. The power is actual against lefties and I will search for that to reveal and offer some worth in the process to us. OF — Jake Cave (MIN) — $2,400 vs. CWS Of the rest of the outfielders in the 2,400 price label or under, Cave is the choice of this crowd as his bat continues to be productive this year against both lefties and righties this year despite swinging from the left side. The figures are now far better against lefties, nevertheless it is a little sample size as he’s mainly used against righties within this strong Twins lineup. Cave possesses an adequate .156 ISO, .737 OPS, .322 wOBA and 99 wRC+ over the season from righties. However, his bat is considerably more productive at home as he’s posted a .169 ISO, .817 OPS, .354 wOBA along with 120 wRC+ at home from right-handed pitching this year. Cave impressed in his big league time last season with a .208 ISO and 109 wRC+ at 2018, and if he hasn’t managed to really replicate the exact identical victory this season, I really enjoy this bat at home at this cost. After fighting for much of September, Cave has notched at least one hit in 2 of his past 3 starts, so perhaps the confidence is turning a bit. Nonetheless, he takes on a right-hander at Ivan Nova who’s again being glued by the opposition using a 9.47 ERA over his past four starts, therefore let us feel great about the upside with the young outfielder tonight. UTIL — Omar Narvaez (SEA) — $2,800 vs. PIT I totally adore the value we’re getting here with Narvaez at this cost considering how he’s fared against right-handed pitching this season as well as the horrible, ugly numbers at Agrazal is sporting throughout his 12 starts and 13 major league appearances this year. While I mentioned I was grabbing the Mariners’ top bat lefties using Vogelbach above, we’re catching their second-best bat from righties with Narvaez inside this spot. Even the lefty-hitting catcher is hitting .296 with a .213 ISO, .861 OPS, .360 wOBA and 129 wRC+ to the season from right-wing pitching. The figures go down only a hair over the road against lefties, but I am not concerned as the dude is raking in the month of September to this stage. For the entire month, Narvaez has published a .314 ISO, .975 OPS, .402 wOBA and 157 wRC+. It would go down as his best month of the 2019 season In case the month finished now. Narvaez went 3 for 4 with a homer, two runs and 2 RBI his last time roughly as gone 9 for 18 (.500) with three homers, a double, five runs and six RBI over his past four starts. The bat is white-hot, he really loves hitting against righties and he faces a one in this matchup. I like the upside this Mariners mini-stack is currently bringing to the table. Read more:
