August 11 MLB DFS Picks: Snake Bitten
August 11 MLB DFS Picks and Analysis
It's another exciting night in MLB DFS as both DraftKings and FanDuel are offering six figure prize pools! Drew Dinkmeyer of the DailyRoto Daily Fantasy Rundown shares some picks and analysis to help get you started with your lineups.
Diamondbacks Outfielders (ARZ) – The price point on David Peralta and A.J. Pollock varies around the industry but Ender Inciarte remains pretty affordable. The Diamondbacks have one of the highest implied run totals of any team this evening and their outfielders all get premium lineup spots. Buchanan hasn’t shown severe splits (.358 wOBA to RHBs, .323 wOBA to LHBs since 2013) so it’s fine to target him with either side of the plate. Our model likes Pollock’s combination of skill, speed component, and lineup sot most (Top 15 hitter in our model) but Inciarte and Peralta also crack our Top 30 hitters overall. I’m likely to have at least one Arizona outfielder in my cash game lineups.
Madison Bumgarner (SF) – The Astros rank eighth in wRC+ against LHP with an above average BB Rate (9.5 percent) and ISO (.167) but also strike out at the eighth highest clip in the league (22.4 percent). They’re experiencing a big park downgrade and losing the DH with the move to the National League. Our model expects Bumgarner to rank among the leaders in K Rate and innings pitched tonight while agreeing with Vegas' implied run total which has the Astros below three implied runs. He ranks at the top of our first tier.
