FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (7/31) PREMIUM
This has been a long time coming but today is the MLB trade deadline. That’s something baseball fans have been waiting for all season but it’s a disastrous day for DFS players. Just be sure to keep an eye on the news and make sure you don’t get any inactives into your lineups!
Jacob deGrom (NYM): $12,000 at CWS
Reliability is key in DFS, so let’s go with deGrom in a superb matchup. This guy has been one of the best pitchers in the league for the past five years but especially the last two years. In fact, deGrom is pitching to a 2.13 ERA and 0.98 WHIP since the beginning of last season while generating a 31.7 percent K rate. Those absurd numbers are backed by a 2.05 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over his last 10 starts. The icing on the cake is this matchup though, with the White Sox ranked 24th in K rate, 28th in runs scored, 27th in OPS and 23rd in wOBA.
Paul Goldschmidt (STL): $4,200 vs. CHC
Goldschmidt is one of the hottest hitters in the game right now and it’s tough to fade a guy who’s on such a home run rampage. Since July 5, Goldy has 10 homers, 18 runs scored and 26 RBI en route to a .708 SLG and 1.046 OPS. That’s an absurd stretch in just 20 games, as all that positive regression is hitting quickly. Kyle Hendricks is not necessarily a guy we’re worried about either, as his 4.34 xFIP is nothing to be scared of.
