FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – September 10th

We’ve got a huge primary MLB slate on faucet with plenty of high run projections throughout the board.
Let us see if we earn some cash early in the week and could make the most of roster piles and the right pitcher!
P — Mitch Keller (PIT) — $6,100 vs. SF
This select carries its fair share of dangers. Does Keller possess a 8.18 ERA at the big leagues this year around eight starts, he also abandoned his latest start after only 1.2 innings after taking a line drive from his pitching wrist. Having said that, according to the Pirates’ official site, Keller is great to opt for this beginning tonight and there’s not any mention of a pitch limit or anything that could stop him from reaching his ceiling at a favorable matchup at Oracle Park in San Francisco tonight. If you can look beyond the sky-high ERA, then you’ll observe that Keller has really been exceptionally unfortunate in the early due to his MLB career as he owns a 3.70 FIP, 3.90 xFIP and a massive 12.00 K/9 clip. The offender in his poor fortune to this stage is his huge .469 BABIP against even though allowing a decent 37.6% hard contact against on the year. The matchup could not be much better since he takes on a Giants team which ranks 28th using a .296 wOBA against right-handed pitching on this time and while their 22.9% K-rate versus righties is roughly middle of the pack, Keller boasts substantial strikeout upside down with his sky-high K-rate over the season. Insert in the intense pitcher-friendly confines of Oracle Park and I believe we have a ton of value upside together down with the Pirates’ best prospect tonight.
C/1B — Freddie Freeman (ATL) — $4,000 vs. PHI
My bats will see tonight to some possession, so although most money lineups will begin with Walker Buehler in the casting place, I suppose you can call these bats a cash line. I am going to roster a couple of stacks that have ceilings that are enormous, starting here with the Braves along with Freeman as they carry on the Phillies along with left-hander Jason Vargas. Vargas owns a 4.27 ERA on the season, but in addition a 4.68 FIP and 5.43 xFIP plus a little 7.06 K/9 clip as well. Vargas has interestingly made just one start this season from the Braves despite enjoying at the same division against those together with the Mets and Phillies, however that start was his worst of the year because he lasted only 0.1 innings and surrendered four earned runs before getting the hook. Because of this, dial a Braves pile starting here with Freeman . He’s demonstrated an ability despite hitting on the left side to crush left-handed pitching in the past , but this year his splits greatly favor right-handed pitching. Nonethelesshe still possesses a .200 ISO versus left-handed pitching on the season and also also an .226 mark against lefties in the home. We are also given some foundation upside with six rebounds on the year by freeman. He bound to find that a righty tonight and I wouldn’t be leaving him out of any Braves stack tonight.
2B — Ozzie Albies (ATL) — $3,300 vs. PHI
The young second baseman Ozzie Albies is really a switch-hitter, however we certainly need to roster him from left-handed pitching to righties. Albies possesses just a .173 ISO, .763 OPS, .321 wOBA along with 94 wRC+ on the season versus right-handed pitching. However, against lefties, he is hitting .385 with a .296 ISO, 1.086 OPS, .445 wOBA and a massive 175 wRC+. Furthermore, the numbers get even tastier at house versus lefties where he’s struck them to get a .303 ISO, 1.147 OPS, .469 wOBA along with also a 191 wRC+. The lefty-mashing is certainly nothing knew for Albies since he has hit southpaw pitching for an amazing .240 ISO, .973 OPS, .408 wOBA and 153 wRC+ thus far within his big league career. Obviously, we also receive some stolen base here as well as he has swiped 15 bases on the season, albeit with a few of those. We also have a player who has had the upper hand at the batter vs. pitcher area here. Albies has gone for 12 (.417) with a double and a stolen base against the veteran left-hander within their background against one another. Add in the fact he is projected to hit from the tonight that was precious and I’m loving this drama.
3B — Justin Turner (LAD) — $3,600 vs. BAL
Along with the Braves and their 5.7 operate projection for tonight, I’ll use a four-man Dodgers pile as they carry on left-hander Ty Blach and the Baltimore Orioles tonight. Blach has been completely pummeled this season in the big leagues since he owns a 10.95 ERA, 6.94 FIP and also a 6.69 xFIP to go along with a 2.19 HR/9 clip across four starts and six looks in the bigs this season. The former Giants southpaw also posted a 5.93 ERA, 5.26 FIP and also 5.39 xFIP along his 17 appearances with the Giants’ Triple-A affiliate before switching organizations, thus we certainly have a targetable pitcher . Turner’s bat has turned into a bat against this season as he’s launched 27 long balls and owns a .223 ISO. The long time lefty-masher is getting it done against both lefties and righties, but he possesses a big-time .297 ISO, .938 OPS, .384 wOBA along with also a 141 wRC+ on the season against left wing pitching. Furthermore, his best work comes against lefties on the road where he’s ruined them to the song of a .356 ISO, 1.174 OPS, .476 wOBA along with an eye-popping 201 wRC+. There’s simply no choice on whether to utilize Turner in a stack tonight to be made.
SS — Dansby Swanson (ATL) — $2,800 vs. PHI
Next guy up in our f0ur-man Braves pile is and there’s a lot to like against Vargas in this one tonight, if he has slowed down a few. First, his .186 ISO, .853 OPS, .359 wOBA along with 119 wRC+ around the season against lefties represents better figures than the ones he sport against righties despite hit .190 ISO versus righties being slightly higher compared to his .186 markers against lefties. However, I love the fact that his very best split comes in home against lefties where he possesses a .292 ISO, 1.084 OPS, .443 wOBA and also a 174 wRC+. Even the wRC+ Swanson possesses on the season is that the 119 mark on the street against right-wing pitching, so we have him where we need him tonight. Swanson provides us a stolen base upside as he has swiped at eight bases on the season, albeit two steals versus left handed pitching. He’s been in a small rut at the plate in the month of September, however Swanson doubled, scored a run and stole a base in last night’s series opener against the Phils, so let us search for him to build on that effort in this one tonight.
OF — Ronald Acuna Jr. (ATL) — $4,000 vs. PHI
Completing our four-man Braves stack tonight is Acuna Jr. who brings a ton of power and speed within this lineup as evidenced by his 38 home runs and 34 stolen bases over the year. Nevertheless, Acuna contains possessed the Vargas in their background and enjoys himself some pitching. His lefty-righty divides are actually fairly close, but the advantage goes to lefties because he owns a .281 ISO, .916 OPS, .378 wOBA along with 131 wRC+ against southpaws over the season — all of which are improvements within his characters versus righties. Acuna was really scuffling a bit in the plate of late, going hitless in five of his past eight starts prior to hitting a house run and scoring three runs in the night’s win over the Phillies. The house run now provides him a .278 ISO for the month of September to this stage. In addition to being the leadoff man for the Braves — a place that gives him a great deal of cross-category upside down — Acuna has also possessed Vargas in his career as he has gone 6 for 9 (.667) using a triple and a homer to go alongside a stolen base . That’s good to get a .556 ISO and 1.922 OPS off of the southpaw. Sign up me all day long.
OF — A.J. Pollock (LAD) — $3,800 vs. BAL
Getting back to our Dodgers stack, Pollock who is set to hit in the leadoff spot tonight against the Blach will be rostered by me. Pollock loves himself some left-handed pitching as he’s submitted a .358 batting average against these on the season, but in addition a .185 ISO, .948 OPS, .394 wOBA and also a 148 wRC+ — numbers that carry up quite similarly on the road because they do at home. Pollock busted out using a three-homer nighttime on Friday from the Giants, and if he failed to register a hit in both games since, there is clearly plenty of pop in that violin. The oft-injured outfielder doesn’t have exactly the same speed that saw him steal 39 foundations back at the 2015 year, however he does possess four over just 287 plate appearances in another injury-shortened campaign in 2019. I love the fact that he’s had success in the past against Blach, although the leadoff place is definitely encouraging here. Pollock has gone for 8 (.375) having a double and a home run in his career against the left-hander. His lefty-mashing ways together with a struggling opponent in a hitter-friendly venue from the leadoff spot tonight gives us plenty of reason to love the ceiling Pollock brings to the table.
OF — Cody Bellinger (LAD) — $4,600 vs. BAL
Next guy up from the Dodgers heap is Bellinger that has dominated plenty of pitchers this season in what might amount to a MVP for the young outfielder. It has been an outrageous campaign for its 2017 NL Rookie of the Year since he’s smacked 44 home runs on the season and owns a .336 ISO as a outcome. While the splits edge goes into right-handed pitching, it is actually pretty close as Bellinger has pummeled left pitching as well. Entering this one tonight, Bellinger possesses a .329 ISO, 1.000 OPS, .404 wOBA and 154 wRC+ to the season vs southpaw pitching. The numbers drop on the street a small bit, but let’s also not get too upset over his enormous .311 ISO, .906 OPS, .371 wOBA and 132 wRC+ to the road against lefties. Together with Bellinger, we also have some stolen base upside since he’s swiped 11 bases around the season, four of which come against lefties, which will be wonderful to see. He’s also enjoyed some success before against Blach as he has gone for 16 (.312) using a double and a slide against the left-hander. At the conclusion of the afternoon, I’m not about to depart Bellinger from any Dodgers pile in this matchup tonight.
UTIL — David Freese (LAD) — $2,700 vs. BAL
Completing our four-man Dodgers stack is the veteran Freese who is actually projected to strike from their two-hole tonight and also has had a significant season in part-time obligation for the Dodgers. He has been limited to only 168 plate appearances on the season, however, Freese has obliterated both abandoned and also right-handed pitchers this year. Entering this 1 tonight, Freese owns a .256 ISO, .884 OPS, .372 wOBA plus a 133 wRC+ about the time against lefties — a thing that is nice to see because he has set to take on Blach. However, he will also probably face a right-hander tonight too and he has really destroyed righties to the tune of a .397 ISO, 1.230 OPS, .497 wOBA and also a 215 wRC+. On the road as a complete, Frese has posted a .361 ISO, 1.027 OPS, .418 wOBA plus a 159 wRC+, so he’s set to go for a great matchup in a hitter-friendly environment tonight. Freese includes two strikes his last five plate appearances, and those hits both went for home runs. He 2 for 4. Add it all up and I believe Freese brings a ton of worth upside within this matchup tonight and to the desk at the cost.
