MLB DFS Value Plays – 4/9/18


Hey WiseTake Nation,

10 game slate Coors on the menu. Harper will be chalk and rightfully so. Trout is actually in a very good spot and will have much less ownership.

This article will focus on lower ownership players and is best for GPP’s. I will rarely list chalk plays. Also, I list just 1-2 of my favorite players per position with a few stack options with each plays.

SB targets- Julio Teheran allows 85.6% of the runners. Trea Turner, Brian Goodwin, Adam Eaton.

Favorite low owned stacks

Angels– Cozart, Trout, Upton and Valbuena

Reds- Winker, Votto, Gennett and Duvall.

Diamondback- Goldschmidt, Pollack, Ahmed and Owings. Hit LHP well.



Scherzer, DeGrom and Verlander should take up a lot of ownership tonight.  These are my favorite arms that could get over looked if you want to move off the top three.

Dylan Bundy (BAL)

Twin solid games. Gets Jays tonight who struggle a bit vs the slider and Bundy throws  the slider.

Zach Godley (ARI)

Love playing Godley he usually gets overlooked. Elite GB pitcher 50%to LHH’s and 50% to RHH’s wOBA. 9.5K/9.

Cody Reed (CIN)- DarkHorse

Very risky play and will definitely have a hedge stack in as well. I would not advise playing him in any higher priced contests. Low price high player pool GPP play. Elite GB pitcher 60% to LHH’s and 52% to RHH’s with 8 Ks/9.  He can either go out and throw 5-6 innings get 7-8 Ks and a few ERs or go 1-2 innings, 5-6 runs. Like him to fit in some Col bats along with some other higher price plays. Play at your own risk. Hedge with Santana, Hoskins, Altherr and Kingery.

Jon Gray (COL)

Gray is another risky play pitching in Coors, but I also pitched Anibal Sanchez there a few days ago and he payed off. High K rate and Padres are not too much of a threat.


Chris Iannetta (COL)

Iannetta crushes LHP .409 wOBA and .264 ISO and has seven BvP vs Richards. Contrarian play using C on FanDuel. Stack with LeMahuie, Arenado and Story.


Ryan Zimmerman (WAS)

Zimmerman is batting cleanup tonight vs Teheran. Hits rhp well with a .375 wOBA, .252 and 39% HC. Took him deep last game. Stack with Eaton, Harper, Turner and Goodwin.



Zach Cozart (LAA)

Hits RHP well-.378 wOBA and .238 ISO in an excellent park for hitters. Sneaky play with coors on the slate. Stack with Trout(in a good spot and nice pivot off Harper), Upton and Valbuena.

Asdrubal Cabrera (NYM)

Cabrera has hits in 7 straight game with multiple hits in 3 of those. HR yesterday and he gets Urena who I like to target. Stack with Conforto and Bruce.



Luis Valbuena (LAA)

Power upside .249 iSO vs Doug Fister who allowed a .365 wOBA to LHH last year. Nice hitters park. Valbuena going yard tonight. Stack with Trout, Cozart and Upton.


Trea Turner (WAS)

Turner actually hits better vs RHP- .355 wOBA and .195 ISO. SB upside. See Zimmerman for stack.

Pat Valaika (COL)

Nice power bat .384 wOBA and .326 iso vs LHP. Only 2K on FD. Make sure he is in the lineup.


Justin Upton (LAA)

Crushes LHP, but also hits RHP as well. .351 wOBA and

Mitch Haniger (SEA)

Reverse splits .375 wOBA,  .213 ISO and 37.7% HC  along with Junis 37% HC. Like his changes to go yard.

Jesse Winker (CIN)

Nice power vs RHP with .272 ISO. Good park to hit in. Stack with Votto, Duvall(goes yard today) and Scoootah!

Preston Tucker (ATL)

Punt play- Tucker is starting off the season well. Scherzer dominates RHH’s, but can give up the long ball to lefties. 1.5 HR’s/9. He would be my choice to take Scherzer deep tonight.

Good Luck and Stay Cashing
