Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks For Friday 10/7

Baseball

The 2016 MLB playoffs are in full swing, as we’re already down two MLB wild card games and come Friday night, every single second round series will have begun.카지노사이트

It’s a great time to be alive, but the best part is even if we have zero stock in these playoff games, we can change that by participating in some MLB DFS games at daily sites like FanDuel and DraftKings.

Tonight might actually be your best chance to do so, as it may quickly become a rarity to see as many as four MLB games on the same day until next season rolls back around. That’s precisely the case on Friday night, as 8 teams are active and could give way to some serious cash if you can make the right picks in daily fantasy baseball contests.

Let’s see where the best value is to be had by picking our favorite MLB DFS value play at each major position at DraftKings tonight:

SP: David Price – Red Sox ($8k)

There are 8 arms to choose from tonight and it’s arguable that all of them are elite. J.A. Happ is the one you might say isn’t, but David Price certainly is and he toes the rubber in an effort to get Boston tied up 1-1 in their series with the Cleveland Indians.

Price actually is in a great spot on paper here, as he’s a fantastic price when you consider his upside, and he also has a positive park shift away from Fenway. Cleveland is no joke offensively, but he worked them earlier this year (10 Ks, 29 fantasy points) and could do so again in a must-win game for the Red Sox.

This isn’t a safe matchup, but let’s be honest, nothing is in the MLB playoffs.

C: Jonathan Lucroy – Rangers ($3.4k)

Hitting is going to be very tough in these playoffs, but at catcher you really only want to look at a few guys. Buster Posey might be a tad pricey ($4k) against Jon Lester and Russell Martin and Yasmani Grandal seem to be a little too much “all or nothing”.바카라사이트

Lucroy actually has a positive history against J.A. Happ (hitting .368 in 19 AB) and it stands to reason that the Texas offense will pick back up after not even showing up in game one. Happ is a solid pitcher, but he’s probably the worst one on this slate and he can be had.

1B: Edwin Encarnacion – Blue Jays ($3.8k)

There are always a ton of first base options to consider in daily fantasy baseball, but tonight Edwin stands out the most. He was a hero in Toronto’s wild card game and he was good again in their game one win over Texas (10 fantasy points), so naturally we can hope for the trend to continue.

There is more to like, of course, as he’s a good price for his upside, plus he has a strong history against Yu Darvish (2 homers in 16 AB). Edwin’s success typically comes against right-handed pitchers, too, so the splits matchup is also there for the taking. Yu is obviously an elite arm and it’s possible he takes care of business tonight, but the hope would be either Toronto stays hot or Edwin dongs one and keeps that positive history running strong.

2B: Jason Kipnis – Indians ($3.6k)

There’s even more value at second base, as it might be tough to have total faith in Trea Turner vs. Clayton Kershaw or Ben Zobrist vs. Johnny Cueto.

I’m not sure Kipnis vs. David Price is a killer matchup, either, but he did dong last night and is clearly the better value by comparison. Kipnis is surprisingly very strong against fellow lefties, too, so the splits help him here, as well.

3B: Justin Turner – Dodgers ($3.7k)

The top third base options are pricey, so it might make sense to take a small dive down to Turner, who has some serious pop and is a really nice price.

Turner has tons of upside as he stands regardless of matchup, but he’ll also be facing a righty, which bodes well in terms of his splits production. Max Scherzer certainly is not a good matchup on the road, but one thing the elite Nats arm does is give up dongs here and there. Hopefully Turner will be invited to the dong party tonight.

SS: Addison Russell – Cubs ($2.5k)

Russell faces a right-armed pitcher at home, both of which bode well for him, as he does his best against righties and also did his best (7.9 fantasy points per game) at Wrigley Field this year.

The real case here is he’s super cheap and he’s been really good for much of the year, so at this low price he’s a fun shot in the dark. Facing Johnny Cueto could end in disaster, but Russell has some upside in a potent Cubs offense that is understandably favored to get the win.

OF: Bryce Harper – Nationals ($3.4k)

A few of our daily fantasy baseball picks have been a little contrarian, but this one truly could be. It’s possible a lot of people will fade Harper due to an up and down 2016 season, accompanied by a brutal history against Dodgers ace, Clayton Kershaw.

Harper is a regrettable 1-for-15 against Kershaw, but he did homer on that lone hit and as bad as this matchup is for him, he always carries that home run upside. Harper is at home, too, where he puts up 8.7 fantasy points per game.

The date with Kershaw could go as horribly as the past meetings, but two things sweeten the pot: Harper’s price tag is pretty low given his upside and Kershaw is typically not great in the playoffs. He has an ERA that broached FIVE and is just 2-6 during postseason play. Using Harper as a contrarian option could pay off big time if the Nats crush Kershaw at home tonight.

Hopefully our daily fantasy baseball picks work out and help you. One thing we suggest is to switch it up a bit and use guys that make the most sense to you or for your specific team. These guys aren’t necessarily cash game plays, either. They’re a bit more contrarian and add value to a big GPP tournament squad. No matter how you use our MLB DFS picks, good luck tonight!온라인카지노
