MLB DFS Value Plays (Early Slate) – 4/5/18


Early slate starts at 2:05 and has 6 games.

* I usually don’t list chalk or obvious plays and try to focus on lower ownership plays in good matchups.


Col- should be chalky vs a rookie Lefyt. Arenado, Story, Blackmon(hits well vs LHP), LeMahuie and Desmond.

Bos- first home game of the season with some wind. Betts, Benitendi, Martinez and Devers.

SD- mini stack Renfroe, Villanueva.

PHI- Hernandez, Kingery, Santana, Hoskins and Herrera(sneaky)



CJ Cron (TB)

Who Plays CJ Cron? I do in Fenway. My sneaky HR call of the day. .262 ISO vs LHP. Takes Price deep.

Justin Boar (MIA)

In play outside on Mia (.384 wOBA and .252 iSO). Nice park for him to go yard.


Caesar Hernandez (PHI)

Leading off for the Phillies. Has speed and decent pop. Stack with Santana, Kingely, Hoskins.



Christian Villanueva (SD)

Play him vs LHP, don’t play him vs RHP. Very simple. Mini stack with Renfroe.

Matt Davidson (CWS)

Good power vs RHP .242 ISO.



Trevor Story (COL)

Destroys LHP (.421 wOBA. 353 ISO and 53% HC). Way under priced.



JD Martinez (BOS)

First home game for the Red Sox against Chriinos, who shut them down for 3 innings in the last outing. They will see Chirinos for a second time now and I see them crushing him today at home. Martinez smokes LHP and crushes RHP. .402 wOBA, .351 iso and 47 HC. He is going yard today. Stack with Betts, Benitendi and Devers. 

Hunter Renfroe (SD)

Dissaponted a bit the other day vs a lefty and going right back to him today. Splits are too good to pass up.

Rhys Hoskins (PHI)

Massive power.

Carlos Gomez (TB)

Stack with Cron and Ramos. No one will have them and they both are in play vs Price. Back-to-Back bombs off Price….what?.


Going, going, gone…..(HR calls) 2 more obvious, 2 sneaky.

CJ Cron

JD Martinez

Mitch Haniger

Rhys Hoskins


*Good Luck and Stay Cashing
