FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Tuesday (6/18) PREMIUM
Monday night was a fantastic day for DFS and we’re going to look to build off of that momentum here. What I love about this slate is the fact that we have some fantastic values at pitcher. That opens up the door to use pretty much any hitter you choose and that’s a DFS players dream. If you have any comments or questions, contact me on Twitter @Bartilottajoel.
Yusei Kikuchi (SEA): $6,000 vs. KC
Recent results have lowered Kikuchi’s price to this number but he’s easily the best value on the board. Before allowing 17 runs over his last four starts, Kikuchi pitched to a 3.43 ERA and 1.08 WHIP his first 10 starts. That’s the pitcher I expect to see here, as some really tough matchups recently have skyrocketed his ERA and WHIP. Facing the Royals in a pitcher’s park like Safeco Field is a good way to rebound from this ugly stretch, with Kansas City ranking 25th in xwOBA, 24th in runs scored and 28th in xSLG. Getting a pitcher at $6,000 can’t be overvalued either, as that allows you to get pretty much whatever bats you want into your lineup.
Max Muncy (LAD): $3,700 vs. SF
Muncy has developed into one of the best power hitters in the game and it’s a wonder why he remains below $4,000. Since joining the Dodgers last season, Muncy is posting a .952 OPS and an ISO just shy of .300. He’s actually done a good amount of that damage facing right-handed pitching, providing a .393 OBP and .963 OPS in that span. Facing Shaun Anderson only adds to Muncy’s value, with the Dodgers projected for five runs in this game and Muncy hitting five homers over his last eight games.
