FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – October 16th


Our FanDuel MLB DFS Picks were looking great from last night after our Nationals pile did some notable damage in the first inning of their series-clinching win over the Cardinals, however they did not score another run for the remainder of the night which sent our picks into profitless land.
Since he held the Cardinals to only one run while striking out 10 at the 28,, Patrick Corbin, our starting pitcher, was dealing through four innings. Corbin ran into trouble in the fifth, allowing three earned runs in the inning. He ended with 12 strikeouts, but went five innings and allowed four earned runs. That also hurt also contemplating the first four innings.
Our Nationals pile came from the gate sexy in the Nats’ first inning, but they did not get much else. Juan Soto led the way using an RBI, a double, a run and a single. Adam Eaton scored, doubled and walked had an RBI and Howie Kendrick walked and Anthony Rendon singled and scored a run.
Not helping our cause is that the zeros that our Yankees mini-stack place up. Didi Gregorius created the bases loaded in the first inning and grounded out. In addition, he came by a three-run home run in the eighth inning. Despite some the Yankees getting some baserunners around Gerrit Cole it just wasn’t supposed to be.
A outfielder, michael Brantley, walked, clutching two and scored a run while the other off, Kolten Wong, singled and scored a run to keep a postseason that finished .
Let us turn our attention to tonight’s single-game masterpiece that includes the Astros and Yankees in Game 4. The weather does not look promising for this game but here are my picks for GPPs tonight, when it does.
MVP — Gary Sanchez (NYY) — $5,500 vs. HOU
Both clubs will use their bullpens even though that may change if the game is pushed back from a day if the game takes place tonight. Nonetheless, I’m not so much worried about splits with this one because we aren’t sure these batters will confront during the game. I’m going on texture and truth. My sense is that Gary Sanchez is going to break out in some point. This guy hit 34 home runs in the regular season despite playing in just 106 matches and logging fewer than 450 plate appearances. The .293 ISO he posted is about the .271 indicate he possesses his career although a low batting average and percentage lowered the majority of his metrics. Still, I am absolutely here just for the power, and he has plenty of it. Sure, there is a great deal of bats in this series and the truth is Sanchez has scuffled in those playoffs to the tune of a .095 ordinary and .335 OPS. He possesses a .174 moderate and .590 OPS for his postseason career in exactly 100 plate appearances. Sanchez has not homered since September 3rd. On the other hand, the two matches where he has homered,” Sanchez has homered. He has as much multi-home run with this slate and I believe we can extract a huge amount of value in getting two times his points.
All-Star — Aaron Judge (NYY) — $8,500 vs. HOU
Even though Sanchez has fought to produce to the point in his own postseason career as well as these playoffs, the exact same cannot be stated for Aaron Judge. Judge is having a huge postseason in 2019, hitting .318 having an .899 OPS thanks to a homer, five strikes and hits in four of six games including 2 multi-hit efforts at the moment. His postseason restart speaks for itself because he has struck .270 with a significant .971 OPS. He is homered eight times within that interval and added four doubles. Consequently, Judge appears as good a bet as any player on this background to play tonight to a long ball. He launched 27 home runs despite playing in just 102 matches with his .267 ISO coming marginally under his .285 profession mark. His 141 wRC+ also fell under his 152 wRC. Each of these numbers are of the monster assortment. Judge hit lefties for more power than righties, and it would be awesome to see him put a at-bat against a lefty tonight contemplating his .326 ISO, 1.282 OPS, .523 wOBA and 236 wRC+ at home against lefties this year. That ought to be sufficient for Astros boss A.J. Hinch to avoid employing a lefty in any respect costs from Judge, but let us just look for him to keep his postseason bat sexy in this one tonight.
UTIL — Gleyber Torres (NYY) — $7,500 vs. HOU
Completing our three-man Yankees stack is Torres who is. Torres accounted for most of the damage the Yankees would do in his second of the series last night’s Game 3 loss using a solo home run and third within the last four matches. Torres scuffled from the Yankees’ 2018 postseason which watched them ousted from the rival Red Sox in the ALDS, nevertheless he has been on fire in these playoffs, hitting .417 with a large 1.440 OPS for this stage thanks to these three long balls but also four rebounds along with three walks as well. Torres was exceptional in heading 1 for two with that homer and a couple of walks at last night’s game against Gerrit Cole and Co.. The great news with Torres is that his divides this year were largely equal, especially from a power standpoint a she submitted a .257 ISO against left-handed pitching along with a .256 ISO from righties. This makes him for this 1 tonight, even though the bat was productive against lefties from an overall standpoint. Not much reason to be preventing the bat that was best that the Yankees have for this 1 tonight.
UTIL — Michael Brantley (HOU) — $7,000 vs. NYY
I will also be utilizing a two-man Astros mini-stack within this one tonight as Michael Brantley has chosen it up at the plate of late although not hitting for a whole lot of power right now. Still, the short-porch in right field at Yankee Stadium can change this in a rush for its outfielder. Brantley has recorded a hit in each of his past four games including a pair of two-hit outings in that time, after scuffling in those playoffs. After he captured a pair of singles while he also walked and scored a run as 25, one of those two-hit excursions came. Together with his slash line now back to respectability for these playoffs, Brantley’s power ought to be next to come about. After all, he’d hit 22 homers using a .191 ISO at the regular season. His .226 ISO along with .928 OPs against righties were higher than his marks against lefties, however with a bullpen game it is possible the Yankees ensure Brantley faces a lefty more often than not tonight. Nevertheless, the bat is clearly heating up here and I want to be about for when he uses that short porch in directly.
UTIL — Yordan Alvarez (HOU) — $6,500 vs. NYY
Finishing this lineup and also Astros mini-stack is Alvarez who is just another participant but in case the regular season is any indication, his electricity shouldn’t be held for much longer. Alvarez is going to win AL Rookie of the Year honors as he clubbed 27 home runs in just 87 games after getting promoted from Triple-A, great for a massive .342 ISO. If you wish to add in the 23 home runs Alvarez struck this season he is hit 50 home runs in only 153 games this season. His 178 wRC+ from the season sets hit bat 78. He began the postseason popular against the Rays with three rebounds over the first four matches of this postseason, however Alvarez hasn’t listed a single hit in this show and does not have one within his last four games dating back to Game 5 from the Rays. He is down to some .207/ / .281/ / .310 slash lineup in the playoffs, but that’s likely to change, it is simply a matter of time. Alvarez posted an .342 ISO against both right-handed and left pitching this year, so I search for his capability.
