FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (6/11) PREMIUM
Welcome to my first FanDuel article at FantasyPros. If you’ve been following me, you know that I typically cover DraftKings on Saturdays for FantasyPros but I’ve added Tuesday’s to my repertoire. While these DFS sites generally price players similarly, it’s always nice to look at both and draw values that way. That’s one of the reasons we picked the pitcher we did, as he happens to be the highest-priced pitcher on DK and a huge value on FanDuel.

Chris Paddack (SD): $9,300 at SF
Coming in, I figured Paddack would at least be in the Top-3 in pricing for this slate but he’s actually ranked sixth on FanDuel. The reason for that is because of some recent struggles but I’d argue that he should be north of $10,000 in this premium matchup. In fact, the Giants currently rank 28th in runs scored, 29th in OPS and 27th in xwOBA. That’s really no surprise when you consider that they play in arguably the best pitcher’s park in the Majors. Paddack has shown signs of brilliance too, with the Padres righty posting a 2.97 ERA and 0.89 WHIP this season while striking out 66 batters across 60.2 innings of action.
Edwin Encarnacion (SEA): $4,000 at MIN
It would be easy to recommend Gary Sanchez and Luke Voit against Jason Vargas, but Encarnacion is quite the value in his own right. What I really like about E5 is his recent form, with Encarnacion hitting seven dingers over his last nine games. That is obviously absurd production and it’s clear that his power stroke is clearly back. What makes him an enticing play here is the fact that he gets to face a lefty, with E5 posting an .866 OPS against southpaws in his career. It happens to be a struggling lefty too, with Martin Perez providing a 9.82 ERA and 2.18 WHIP over his last two starts.
