MLB Daily Fantasy Algorithmic Picks for July 6th on DraftKings
- C – Miguel Montero
Reynolds and the Cardinals host Andrew Cashner and the Padres tonight. Cashner has been worse on the road and just generally very hittable this season. Reynolds has been struggling but is always a threat to strike out 3 times and hit a home run on the fourth. This makes him very cheap with some upside to fit in a couple stud pitchers tonight.
- OF – Andre Ethier
Ethier is part of a Dodgers line up projected to score 4.9 runs at home tonight. I’m amazed that it isn’t higher against Sean O’Sullivan. Either way, Ethier has been much better against righties for his career and he’s been hot recently.
- 3B/OF – Kelly Johnson
Johnson is a weather-safe play here for the Braves, and a cheap one at that. Batting third in the order against the mediocre Kyle Lohse should give him enough upside for his $3,000 price tag. He will have a LvsR match up against a pitcher who gives up a ton of home runs in a hitter friendly ball park.
- OF – Clint Robinson
Robinson bats 5th tonight for the Nats projected at 4 runs against the shaky Anthony DeSclafani. It will be a LvsR match up for Robinson and DeSclafani has been much worse against that side of the plate.
- OF – Joc Pederson
Pederson will be heavily involved against the horrible Sean O’Sullivan. The Dodgers are projected at 4.9 runs and Pederson’s home run upside makes him a chalk play.
- 1B – Anthony Rizzo
Rizzo has been a bit better against right handed pitching. The Cubs are projected to score 4.5 runs at home with the wind blowing out. Rizzo has a ton of upside against John Lackey with a LvsR match up.
- C – Yasmani Grandal
Grandal is better from the left side and joins Ethier and Pederson as a lefty with pop against Sean O’Sullivan.
- OF – Yasiel Puig
Puig hits righties very well and gets a terrible one tonight at home. See all the other Dodgers on this list? The Dodgers should beat up the Phillies tonight and Puig will be part of that.
Under the Radar Player
- C – Martin Maldonaldo
Maldonaldo gets the start tonight to give Lucroy a night off for the Brewers. Milwaukee is still projected to score 4.4 runs at home against the inconsistent Matt Wisler. Maldonaldo has big shoes to fill but has shown more power against righties in his career.View all posts by Donnie Chell
