FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – October 16th
Our FanDuel MLB DFS Picks were looking great from last night following our Nationals pile did some noteworthy damage in the first inning of the series-clinching win over the Cardinals, but they didnt score another run for the remainder of the night that sent our picks back into profitless land.
Our starting pitcher, Patrick Corbin, was dealing through four innings as he held the Cardinals to one. But, Corbin ran into trouble in the fifth, allowing three earned runs in the inning. He allowed four earned runs and ended with 12 strikeouts, however, went five innings. That considering the first four innings as well hurt.
Our Nationals pile that was four-man came from the gate hot in the Nats very first inning, but they did not find much else done from there on out. Juan Soto led the way using an RBI, a double, a run and one. Adam Eaton scored doubled and walked while Anthony Rendon singled and needed an RBI and Howie Kendrick walked and scored a run.
Also not helping our cause is really your zeros that our Yankees mini-stack place up. Didi Gregorius developed the bases loaded in the first inning and grounded out. He also came about a foot from a three-run home run in the eighth inning. Despite a few the Yankees getting some baserunners on Gerrit 17, it wasnt supposed to be.
Michael Brantley, a one time outfielder, walked singled twice and scored a run while Kolten Wong, the other off, singled twice and scored a run to keep a productive postseason that finished.
Our attention turns to tonights single-game slate that features Yankees and the Astros in Game 4. If it will, here are my selections for GPPs tonight, although the weather does not seem promising with this game happening.
MVP — Gary Sanchez (NYY) — $5,500 vs. HOU
Both clubs will be using their bullpens even though that could change if the match is pushed back by a single day if the sport indeed takes place tonight. Nonetheless, Im not so much concerned about splits with this one because we arent sure these batters will face during the game. Im going on feel and facts. My feel is that Gary Sanchez will break out in some point. This man hit 34 home runs despite logging fewer than 450 plate appearances and playing in just 106 matches. The .293 ISO he submitted is about the .271 mark he owns because of his career although a very low batting average and percentage reduced most of his advanced metrics. Still, Im absolutely here only for the energy, and hes got plenty of it. Sure, theres a ton of bats in this series and the fact is Sanchez has scuffled to the song of a .095 typical and .335 OPS. He owns only a .174 typical and .590 OPS because of his career in plate appearances. Sanchez also hasnt homered since September 3rd. On the other hand, Sanchez, the past two games where he has homered has homered twice. He has as much multi-home run with this slate and I think we could extract a bunch of value in gaining twice his points as the MVP of this lineup .
All-Star — Aaron Judge (NYY) — $8,500 vs. HOU
The same can not be said for Aaron Judge while Sanchez has fought to make these playoffs as well as his own postseason career to this point. Judge is using a big postseason in 2019, hitting .318 having an .899 OPS five walks and strikes in four games including two attempts at the moment. His postseason resume speaks for itself as he has hit .270 with a large .971 OPS. He is homered eight times within that span and added four doubles. Consequently, Judge appears as good a bet as any player on this background to perform tonight to a very ball. He launched 27 home runs despite playing just 102 matches with his .267 ISO coming marginally under his .285 profession mark. His 141 wRC+ fell to get his livelihood beneath his 152 wRC +. Certainly, each of these numbers are of the monster variety. Judge struck lefties for greater power than righties, and it would be amazing to see him buy an at-bat against a lefty tonight considering his .326 ISO, 1.282 OPS, .523 wOBA along with 236 wRC+ in home against lefties this season. That should be enough for Astros boss A.J. Hinch to prevent employing a lefty at all costs from Judge, but lets just search for him to maintain his postseason bat hot in this 1 tonight.
UTIL — Gleyber Torres (NYY) — $7,500 vs. HOU
Completing our Yankees stack is Torres who is the very best bat the Yankees have had in this show to the point. Torres accounted for all the damage the Yankees would do in his second of the series last nights Game 3 loss using a solo home run and third within the last four matches. Torres scuffled in the Yankees 2018 postseason that saw them ousted by the rival Red Sox in the ALDS, nevertheless he has been on fire in these playoffs, hitting .417 using a enormous 1.440 OPS for this stage thanks to those three long balls but additionally four doubles and three walks too. Torres was exceptional in moving 1 for 2 with that homer and a couple of walks in the nights match against Gerrit Cole and Co.. The good news with Torres is that his divides this year proved mostly equivalent, especially in a power standpoint that a she submitted a .257 ISO against left wing pitching plus a .256 ISO against righties. This makes him with this one tonight, even though the bat was productive against lefties. Not much reason to be preventing the bat the Yankees have for this 1 tonight.
UTIL — Michael Brantley (HOU) — $7,000 vs. NYY
I will also be using a two-man Astros mini-stack in this 1 tonight as Michael Brantley has chosen it up in the plate of late night although not hitting for a whole lot of power right now. Still, the short-porch in right field at Yankee Stadium can change this in a rush to its lefty-swinging outfielder. Brantley has captured a hit in each of the last four games including a pair of excursions at the moment after scuffling in those playoffs. When he captured a group of singles while he also walked and scored a run as 25, one of those excursions came last night. Together with his slash line back to respectability for these playoffs, Brantleys power ought to be following to come about. After all, hed hit 22 homers having a nice .191 ISO. His .226 ISO along with also .928 OPs against righties were higher than his marks against lefties, nevertheless with a bullpen match its possible the Yankees ensure Brantley faces a lefty more often than not tonight. Nevertheless, the bat is heating up here and I would like to be around for if he uses that short porch in directly.
UTIL — Yordan Alvarez (HOU) — $6,500 vs. NYY
Finishing this lineup and Astros mini-stack is Alvarez who is another participant however if the normal season is any indicator, his electricity shouldnt be held down for much longer. Alvarez is going to win AL Rookie of the Year honors as he clubbed 27 home runs in just 87 games after getting promoted from Triple-A, great for a massive .342 ISO. If you wish to add at the 23 home runs Alvarez struck in just 56 league games this season hes hit 50 home runs in just 153 matches this season. His 178 wRC+ in the regular season puts struck bat 78% above league average from a manufacturing perspective. He started the postseason hot against the Rays using three rebounds across the first four matches of this postseason, however Alvarez hasnt recorded a single hit in this series and does not have one within his last four games dating back into Game 5 against the Rays. He is down to some .207/.281/ / .310 slash line in the playoffs, but thats going to change, it is only a matter of time. Surprisingly, Alvarez posted an .342 ISO against both left and right-handed pitching this year, so I look for his capacity to show through regardless of the arm the opposition chooses to reveal him tonight.
