MLB DFS plays


Andrew Heaney, LAA vs. TEX ($9,200): Heaney is on a two-game heater that has resulted in 109 combined FDP, largely thanks to 16 Ks over 14.2 innings. He was hit hard by the Rangers in his only previous meeting (five runs, eight hits in 3.2 innings), but the Rangers are usually targetable, owning a meager 67 wRC+, .283 wOBA, .137 ISO and 24.8 percent strikeout rate against lefties.

Sixto Sanchez, MIA at ATL ($9,000): Sanchez is a strict GPP play, as Atlanta leads the league with a .361 wOBA against righties. For as much as the Marlins' NL East rivals can go off offensively though, they also fan 24.9 percent of the time against righties, ranking ninth. They've been incredibly homer dependent for their offense, going 2-for-11 in Monday's defeat. The Ks, and lack of situational hitting, could result in Sanchez having a big tally.

Dylan Cease, CWS at PIT ($8,400): The Pirates are a nightly punching bag offensively, so why would Tuesday be any different? They carry a woeful .264 wOBA, 62 wRC+ and 25.1 percent K rate into this contest. Cease has seen 40 FDP only one this season however, and is fanning only 6.2 per nine innings, so the upside may not be as juicy as the matchup suggests.

Luke Weaver, ARI vs. LAD ($6,900): If you're just looking to throw an arm out there and flirt with 20 FDP, Weaver can be your guy. He's coming off a 25 FDP outing against these Dodgers, and is averaging 25.5 FDP over his last four, thanks largely to 10.7 Ks per nine. He's going to give up some hits and some runs, but if his form holds true, he'll flirt with 4x value. Top Targets Ronald Acuna, ATL vs. MIA ($4,300): Acuna continues to find ways to score points. He's had an 18.4 FDP floor over his last four, despite collecting only three hits in that span. Be it power, walks, steals, or runs scored, he simply produces and makes for a sound play at a $400 savings compared to Mike Trout. Jose Abreu, CWS at PIT ($3,800): Sure, Abreu has homered just once since August 26. But he's riding a 20-game hitting streak coming into Tuesday. He'll face Joe Musgrove, who's allowing a .437 wOBA to righties to date.  Value Bats Ryan Mountcastle, BAL at NYM ($3,200): Nothing to overthink here, it's just a plus matchup. Mountcastle has a .417 wOBA and 165 wRC+ against righties. Michael Wachais allowing a .493 wOBA and 1.199 OPS to same-handed bats.  J.D. Davis, NYM vs. BAL ($2,600): Davis is mashing lefties to the tune of a .397 wOBA, and usually slots into the top third of the order of what's a pseudo lefty-heavy lineup. He's had multi-hit efforts in half of his last six games, and reaching 10 FDP would be a tremendous return on value. Corey Dickerson, MIA at ATL ($2,600): Marlins bats are certainly stackable against Kyle Wright, but they have a void of lefties, against which Wright is allowing a .471 wOBA and 1.080 OPS. Enter Dickerson. His splits aren't terrific in LvR matchups to date, but he's homered twice in his last four, collecting at least one hit in each of those contests.  Stacks to Consider Padres vs. Chi Chi Gonzalez: Eric Hosmer ($3,600), Trent Grisham ($3,200), Mitch Moreland ($2,900) The Padres bats will be popular, but perhaps we can sneak in a lefty stack here rather than focusing on big names. Gonzalez is being pelted by opposite-handed bats (in a small sample size), allowing a .565 wOBA and 1.349 OPS. Hosmer seems like a great anchor, boasting a .421 wOBA and .282 ISO. Grisham doesn't lag far behind with a .374 wOBA, and while Moreland hasn't gotten going since moving west, he still has serious power upside. Mariners vs. Logan Webb: Kyle Lewis ($3,700), Kyle Seager ($3,200), Dylan Moore($3,000) Webb has allowed nine runs over his last nine innings, and is surrendering a .370 wOBA to same-handed bats, bringing Lewis and Moore into play, as both have wOBAs at .400 or better. Seager's .378 wOBA against righties is far from awful, and the price point for all three allows for great flexibility.
