MLB DFS Fastballs and Flyballs 8/13/2019

Tonight we are looking at a 14 game slate. DK has removed the Astros/White Sox 2nd game. A lot of options today and listed below is a quick look at my favorite options.



Matthew Boyd

This is an excellent matchup for Boyd tonight going against the Mariners who strike out close to a 30% clip ha LHP.  Boyd throws the slider close to 40% of the time and most of the team does not hit the pitch well. Tom Murphy does destroy that pitch. Nice double digit K potential tonight for Boyd in this spot. Looking at 6 innings 10 Ks and 1 ER.



Brett Anderson

A reasonable price for Anderson vs a weak Giants team that don’t hit well vs LHP. The current Giants lineup has a K rate around 26% and this park should help limit HRs as well.  Anderson is usually good for 6 + innings a run or two and 4+ Ks.

Also Consider: Dustin May vs Marlins.



Chase Anderson

Anderson is a reverse split pitcher where he pitches much better vs lefties. The Twins have been rolling out about 5 lefties each night, which is good for Anderson. They also have a ton of power, which makes him a bit of a risk. I can see him doin well enough to pay off his price tonight,  especially if they roll out more lefties. Looking at 5 innings, 6 Ks and 1-2 ERs.


Thomas Pannone

Dirt cheap arm today going against a team that strikes out at close to a 30%clip vs LHP. Pannone’s Secondary pitch is the curveball and Calhoun(lefty) is the only one who hits it well. I don’t expect a clean game, but I can see him going 4-5 innings and getting 6Ks tonight.



STL Cardinals vs Sparkman

Sparkman has been getting destroyed this year and especially as of late. Cardinals have most of the players back.

*Goldschmidt, Ozuna, DeJong favorites with Fowler and Thomas coming in next.



Freddie Freeman 

Freeman hits well vs Wheeler’s pitch type and it makes sense why he is 12-24 with 12 walks vs him. Nice spot for Freeman tonight and will get over looked on a 14 game slate.


Gio Urshela

Continues to hit well and prefer him vs LHP. Os pitching staff and bullpen is one to pickup on.


Hunter Renfroe 

Renfroe after a day off vs a rookie LHP that had allowed 5 HRs over his last 2 starts. McKay relies on the curveball as his secondary pitch and Renfroe destroys it. Low ownership  💣 tonight.



JD Davis

John Hicks

Lane Thomas

Josh VanMeter

Jackie Bradley Jr. – start of his 2nd hot streak
