FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (7/17) PREMIUM
We’ve really been hitting our stride here on FantasyPros and it’s a beautiful thing to be back into the baseball grind after that small break. Not only did we get you a minimum priced pitcher yesterday who threw a quality start, we also got some gems from players like Joc Pederson, Keston Hiura, Jarrod Dyson and Matt Chapman. While we have games spread all throughout the day, we’re going to focus on the night slate beginning at 7ET for this particular article. That eliminates the Coors Field game, which completely alters everything.
Chris Paddack (SDP): $8,900 @ MIA
It seems pretty crazy to me that Paddack is the fifth-highest pitcher on this short slate, in arguably the best matchup in baseball. We’re talking about a guy with a 2.84 ERA and 0.92 WHIP while posting an 87:18 K:BB rate. Those are simply some of the best numbers around and he should have no problem crushing through this cupcake lineup. Not only is Marlins Park the best pitching park in the Majors, Miami currently ranks bottom-three in runs scored, OPS, wOBA and xwOBA. That’s why I have Paddack projected as a $10,500 player, as we’re looking at a $1,600 discount.
