MLB Daily Fantasy Algorithmic Picks for September 29th on DraftKings

Low Salary

  • 2B/3B – Tommy La Stella – $2,400 CHC@CIN (3.44 P/$1,000, 8.27 Point Projection)

La Stella is super cheap and batting fifth. He will be LvsR tonight against a weak young pitcher. The Cubs have a 4.7 run projection against Cincy as they stack up the powerful lefty bats.

  • 1B/OF – Clint Robinson – $2,400 WAS@ATL (3.42 P/$1,000, 8.20 Point Projection)

Robinson is very cheap and LvsR against an inconsistent pitcher. The Nats have a 4.6 run projection and Robinson could allow you to pay up for pitchers.

  • 1B/OF – Darin Ruf – $2,300 NYM@PHI (3.06 P/$1,000, 7.03 Point Projection)

Ruf is cheap with dual position eligibility against a pitch to contact pitcher. Yes, Colon has been amazingly effective this year but Ruf still has upside for his price in the clean up spot.

  • OF – Jason Bourgeois – $2,400 CHC@CIN (2.81 P/$1,000, 6.74 Point Projection)

Bourgeois leads off at only 2.4K and Haren isn’t very good against runners. Bourgeois also has big reverse splits this year so don’t mind the RvsR match up.

High Salary

  • OF – David Peralta – $3,600 COL@ARI (3.00 P/$1,000, 10.78 Point Projection)

Peralta has a fantastic match up against the Rockies bull pen at home. The Diamondbacks have a 5.2 run projection and Peralta is having a very good September.

  • OF – Ender Inciarte – $4,000 COL@ARI (2.60 P/$1,000, 10.40 Point Projection)

Inciarte flashed some power last night but it’s probably a flash in the pan. However, he is having a very good month of September and has a great match up tonight in hitter friendly Chase Field. The Rockies bullpen is terrible and the Dbacks could be in store for a huge game with Inciarte benefiting from extra at bats in the lead off spot.

  • 2B/3B – Anthony Rendon – $3,700 WAS@ATL (2.49 P/$1,000, 9.20 Point Projection)

Rendon leads off against an inconsistent pitcher with a 4.6 run projection. He will probably be very underused since the match up is RvsR and Wisler can be good at times.

  • OF – Jacoby Ellsbury – $4,000 BOS@NYY (2.42 P/$1,000, 9.67 Point Projection)

Despite Porcello inexplicably dominating the Yankees last time he faced them, New York has a 4.6 run projection. Ellsbury has monster numbers against Porcello in a small sample and as a lefty in Yankee Stadium he gets a bump. Ellsbury is a much better option on FanDuel but I still like his chances tonight on DK especially since his ownership will probably be low with Kershaw and other expensive pitching options to pay for.

Under the Radar Player

  • SS – Erick Aybar – $3,000 OAK@LAA (2.70 P/$1,000, 8.09 Point Projection)

Aybar is playing very well lately. He continues to lead off and the Angels are projected to score 4.6 runs at home against a weak Oakland team. Aybar doesn’t have a ton of upside from power but he gets on base a lot, can steal and is capable of sneakily racking up the points over multiple at bats.
