FanDuel Bargain Bin: Friday

The Los Angeles Dodgers are hitting a whopping .377 wOBA against right-handed pitchers and a .387 wOBA at home, bot are tops in the league. Tonight they get the righty Rubby De La Rosa who has given up a .371 wOBA to lefties and .337 wOBA to righties so far in his career. This all adds up to a good time to stack the Dodgers.

 

Your top plays of course are the non-Bargain guys like Adrian Gonzalez and Joc Pederson, but there will be some nice value, especially with the Dodgers hurting in the outfield and needing to play guys who aren’t every day players.

 

 

DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH

 

Mookie Betts – OF – BOS (FanDuel Price: $3,100) Betts has six hits in his last three games, including four RBIs and four runs scored. He takes on C.C. Sabathia tonight who has given up a .345 average to right-handed hitters this season. Don’t be afraid to get the Red Sox righties in your lineup tonight.

 

Stephen Vogt – C – OAK (FanDuel Price: $3,100) Vogt has been mashing righties this season for a 1.106 OPS and four homers. Colby Lewis has pitched well this season, but has given up a .358 wOBA to lefties over the last few seasons. This game has the highest over/under on the night and should provide hitter friendly conditions.

 

Andre Ethier – OF – LAD (FanDuel Price: $2,700) Ethier has two homers and a double in his last four games and is batting over .300 on the season.  For his career he’s hit righties for a .367 wOBA while De La Rosa has given up a .371 wOBA along with a lofty 1.41 HR/9 to lefties.

 

Also Consider: Dustin Pedroia – 2B – BOS  . . . Brian Dozier – 2B – MIN . . . Yoenis Cespedes – OF – DET

 

 

 

VIABLE PUNTS

 

Ike Davis – 1B – OAK (FanDuel Price: $2,400) Davis continues to hit righties well, with a .318 averages, but his price continues to be very low. His upside isn’t great, but he’s only had one negative game all season on FanDuel and he’s had 11 straight positive games.

 

Evan Gattis – C – HOU (FanDuel Price: $2,700) Gattis has turned things around with eight of his nine RBIS coming in the last five games. He’s hit lefties for a .348 wOBA and .230 ISO while Roenis Elias is no slouch, he does allow a .323 wOBA to righties.

 

A.J. Pierzynski – C – ATL (FanDuel Price: $2,900) Pierzynski is batting .422 to start the season, with most of that coming against right-handed pitching. After a day off he faces Anthony DeSclafani who has started off the season hot, but is susceptible to lefties, giving up a .374 wOBA to them so far in his career.

 

Also Consider: Erick Aybar – SS – LAA . . . Matt Duffy – SS – SFG . . . Martin Prado – 3B -- MIA

 

 

 

TOURNAMENT GAMBLES

 

Evan Longoria – 3B – TAM (FanDuel Price: $3,100) Longoria would be a no brainer against a lefty, but he faces righty Chris Tillman tonight. The good news is that Longoria is hitting extremely well right now and has hit Tillman well in his career, oh, and he’s only $3,100.

 

Jimmy Rollins – SS – LAD (FanDuel Price: $2,800) Rollins is part of my Dodgers stack against Rubby De La Rosa. He hit a homer in his last game, but has been pretty quiet to start off this young season, but the lefty/righty matchup is good enough for me tonight.

 

Kendrys Morales – 1B – KAN (FanDuel Price: $2,500) Morales has hit safely in 20 of 22 games this season and accumulated 17 RBIs and a .315 average hitting out of the five hole for a team that leads the league in hits per game.

 

Also Consider: Anthony Gose – OF – DET . . . Kyle Seager – 3B – SEA  . . . Nick Markakis – OF – ATL
