Leading Off – 7.18 – FREE – First Look Core GPP Plays – FanDuel and DraftKings MLB

Hey Playmakers!!! We’ve got you a first look Core-5 of MLB DFS Picks to get your lineups started, as well as a few additional plays to consider. These picks work for both DraftKings and FanDuel. We’ll be researching and digging for the best plays throughout the day, so be sure to keep an eye out for our Stack Report, and Premium Core plays closer to lock.

Pitcher:

P | Noah Syndergaard | New York Mets | FD: $9,200 DK: $9,200


Opponent: New York Mets

1.  Syndergaard was electric in his first start back after the all star break, putting up 30 DK point and 52 FD points. 
2. His FIP almost an entire point lower than his ERA, things should improve for him.
3. SF is a complete home/road reverse, at home they offer a WRC+ of .66 an ISO of .127 and a K% of 24.4 to RHP.
4. Despite Syndergaard having a K/9 below where we’d expect (8.79) he has a K% above 23 and a swinging strike % above 12.5, his peripherals point to him having a expected K/9 over 10.

Also Consider:  Trevor Bauer (CLE)

Infielders :

1B | Matt Olson | Oakland A’s | FD: $3,800 | DK: $4,700

Opposing Pitcher: Kyle Gibson

1. Matt Olson has an ISO if .277 vs RHP
2. Matt Olson is hitting the ball hard 53.6% of the time vs RHP paired with a huge fly ball rate of 50, with a park upgrade at Target Field he is a lock for me tonight.
3. Gibson is allowing LHB to slug above .400 against him.
4. Warm and Humid = Hitting weather!

Also Consider: Freddie Freeman, Paul Goldschmidt 

2B | Jose Altuve | Houston Astros | FD:$3,900 | DK:4,200

Opposing Pitcher : Matt Harvey

1. Despite having a decent game last game against Seattle, it is still Matt Harvey
2. Harvey is a dumpster fire with a FIP of 6 and a HCR of 41%.
3. Altuve is still way under priced on both sites IMO (more so DK).
4. Altuve is averaging above 12 DK points and above 15 on FD since the All star break.

Also Consider: Mike Moustakas, Scooter Gennett

Outfielders:

OF | Nelson Cruz | Minnesota Twins | FD: $3,800 | DK: $4,500

Opposing Pitcher : Mike Fiers 

1. Fiers is a reverse splits Fly ball pitcher, pitching at Target Field in warm, humid conditions
2. Fiers has a FLY ball rate over 40% to RHH while allowing a HCR of 40.7%
3. Cruz has an ISO of .254 vs RHP
4. Cruz has a wRC+ of 131 

Also Consider: Christian Yelich

OF | Ramon Laureano | Oakland Athletics | FD:$3,300 DK:$4,700

Opposing Pitcher: Kyle Gibson 

1. Laureano has 7+ games in a row of 10+ DK points, 7 in a row of 15+ FD points (way under priced on FD)
2. Laureano has an ISO of .239 vs RHP 
3. Again hot and humid weather in Minnesota 
4. Love the game stack here, Vegas has it implied at 10.6 runs currently

Also Consider: Josh Reddick

Gaining Strokes – The Open Championship – PGA DFS

Today we will present an abbreviated version of Gaining Strokes for both free and premium users that will include our favorite golfers all around for The Open Championship on the DraftKings platform. Let’s dive right in!

Dustin Johnson | $10,900
Anytime we can get DJ at low-double digit ownership it feels like a steal, and that is exactly what we have here. If it’s possible for the #2 player in the world to be coming in under the radar, we are seeing it in this spot. DJ hasn’t played much recently, and what he has shown isn’t great, but he had made 8 straight Open cuts prior to an MC last year, and at a discounted price and low ownership, he makes for a great GPP option this week.
Bryson DeChambeau | $9,200
Coming in the best form he has shown in months, DeChambeau seems tailor made for the thinking man’s type of strategy that is needed here at The Open. Two consecutive Top 8 finishes and an ownership number that looks to be in the single digits leads me to wanting to roster him again here this week.
Tommy Fleetwood | $9,700
Tommy comes in quietly this week, but enters The Open on a remarkable streak of not missing a cut in over a year – this includes a 12th place finish at last year’s Open. His putting will be the key, as it has been that facet of the game that has let him down as of late. If this turns into a windy affair, I’ll take Fleetwood’s ball striking over almost anyone in this field.
Matt Kuchar | $8,700
Arguably the best player in the world over the last six months, Kuchar comes in priced higher than we have traditionally seen him at major championships in the past. With that said, he has the Open pedigree (back-to-back Top 10s) and current form (four Top 20s in the last two months) which has me feeling like this could be his breakthrough week.
Marc Leishman | $7,700
When the winds blow, Leishman is always one of the first names that pops as a contender at the Open. Leishman also definitely loves playing the Open, posting 5 consecutive made cuts, which include three Top 6 finishes since 2014. He feels like a guy that is only seeking a major to cap off a brilliant career – this could be his best opportunity yet.
Eddie Pepperell | $7,600
A world renowned links player, Pepperell clocks in with great form heading into this tournament with two Top 4 finishes in his last four starts to accompany his sixth place finish at last year’s Open. This week could prove that he is more than just a good Twitter follow – he could be the owner of the Claret Jug come Sunday evening.
Joaquin Niemann | $6,900
Making his first Open appearance, Niemann comes in the type of form many of us thought we would see all year from him. The Chilean has made seven consecutive cuts, including three Top 10s in his last four starts. He can play in any condition, and should be around for the weekend here in Northern Ireland.
Romain Langasque | $6,400
The dark horse for me this week is the Frenchman, Langasque, who makes his second appearance at the Open (he finished 65th here in 2015). The underdog has a crazy amount of talent, but is a GPP only option this week as he has three Top 5s and four missed cuts in his last 7 starts.
As always, thank you very much for giving my article a glance this week as you prepare for the The Open Championship. If you have any questions you would like to ask me about your lineup or about my article in general, join us on the DPA Premium PGA slack channel where you can get exclusive access to myself as well as the rest of our other experts for NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL. I’ll be available to answer your roster construction questions this Wednesday evening, July 17th.
