JOE SAUNDERS IS A NICE VALUE PLAY AGAINST THE RANGERS

Winning in Daily Fantasy Baseball revolves around getting good pitchers. If you get a guy that has a terrible outing, you’ll likely have trouble beating a group of people. That’s why they are so expensive. All season long I’ll be looking at some of the cheaper bargains on the market that can help you fill out your roster because there’s usually not enough room to grab two of the best pitchers available.
Yesterday I hit the mark with Carlos Villanueva and Tony Cingrani who were both $5,000. Unfortunately, it’s going to be harder to find value like that today.
Joe Saunders, SP, Mariners (at TEX) $7,200 at DraftKings.com
He already contained the Rangers in his last start by going seven innings while allowing zero runs. Texas continues to struggle hitting the ball which is an equation for another solid outing by Saunders.
Brett Anderson, SP, Athletics (at TB) $8,500 at DK
Anderson was destroyed by the Tigers last time out, but the Rays should be an easier task for him. A similar performance to his first two games should be expected where he allowed just two runs in 13 innings while striking out 16.
Todd Frazier, 1B/3B, Reds (vs. MIA) $4,100 at DK
Frazier has now homered in back-to-back games and while you can’t really expect that to happen again, he should be able to make contact against Kevin Slowey. The Reds put 11 runs on the Marlins last night and a repeat performance wouldn’t be surprising.
Marwin Gonzalez, SS, Astros (vs. CLE) $2,800 at DK
I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one, but Gonzalez has hit well to start the season and he’s been getting more playing time because of that. As long as he’s in the lineup tonight, he’s a great value play. Brett Myers will be on the mound for the Indians and he’s gotten roughed up a couple times already this season.
Tyler Flowers, C, White Sox (vs. MIN) $3,600 at DK
Even though Flowers had a stretch batting 1-for-25 just recently, he has found some contact lately going 3-for-7 in the last two games. He should be able to continue his hitting ways against Vance Worley who is just getting rocked at the moment. Worley had seven earned runs after just one inning of work last time out. Flowers and the rest of the White Sox should be able to capitalize on that.
