MLB DFS Lowe-Down for Tuesdayby John Lepore July 5, 2022 0 comments
With a huge 12-game DFS slate on DraftKings tonight, we dive into some reasonably-priced players. There are plenty to choose from and hopefully, we hit as we did on Sunday. Both of our pitchers dominated, and two of our four hitters went yard the day before the fireworks.
As usual, these are pitchers at $8,000 and under along with hitting bargains at $4,000 and under which is gold for your DFS lineups if they produce. It also allows you to stack the rest of your lineup with studs. Let’s get to it.
Be sure to check us out daily for our DFS content.
On the Mound
Yusei Kikuchi @ Oakland Athletics ($7,800)
The Blue Jays lefty finally turned it around last outing. After a dismal string of starts, Kikuchi threw six masterful innings with an Isaac Paredes solo home run the only damage. Tonight, he gets the anemic A’s offense. They are a team that sits last in the majors with a .604 OPS and strikes out more than two-thirds of the league. I am betting that Kikuchi found his groove and will be in for a good night.
Pivot: Mitch White vs. Colorado Rockies ($7,400)
On the Dirt
Nathaniel Lowe, 1B ($3,800)
Lowe is having a solid season and finds himself in a good spot tonight hitting in Camden Yards. For his career, the big left-handed slugger has slashed .318/.353/.587 with five homers in just 16 games in Baltimore. He faces Austin Voth who has pitched fairly well for the Orioles but has a history of giving up the long ball allowing 37 bombs in 193.2 innings in his career. Lowe should tank one tonight.
Pivot: Christian Walker ($3,700)
Gleyber Torres, 2B ($4,000)
Torres is having a good season for the Yankees especially against left-handed pitchers. He has cranked eight of his 13 homers off of southpaws in just 81 plate appearances. Jose Quintana started the season off hot but has cooled down since the end of May. Last month he had a 4.80 ERA and surrendered five bombs in 30 innings while allowing opponents an .824 OPS.
Pivot: Kolten Wong ($3,700)
Alec Bohm, 3B ($3,300)
So, Bohm isn’t showing any kind of power yet. However, he has an eight-game hitting streak where he is batting .364. He also has three doubles and a triple in that time. Since Paolo Espino has hit the starting rotation, he has been more hittable. The Nats right-hander is allowing a .787 OPS over those four starts and has surrendered four homers in 18.1 innings.
Pivot: Yoan Moncada ($2,900)
On the Grass
Andrew Benintendi ($3,600)
Benny has been rolling right along this year for the Royals. The former first-round pick is batting .314 and has cut his strikeout rate down to below 14 percent while still maintaining a near-10 percent walk rate. The floor is where you want Benintendi, and he is golden in cash games.
Pivot: Dylan Carlson ($3,400)
Good Luck with all of your DFS lineups.
