8/7 DFS Pitching Picks: Shopping for Discounts



Unless your name is Gerrit Cole, Wednesday’s slate of pitchers is a grab bag of mediocrity. Somehow, some way, we will get through this together and find some bargains to assure most of your 8/7 DFS coin goes to loading up on hitters. Let’s all say a quiet prayer and remember that Wednesday is just 24 hours a longer journey.

8/7 DFS Pitching Cash Game Plays of the Day

Lance Lynn, TEX at CLE

DK ($11,700) FD ($10,500)

Lynn has been straight Boss over his last five starts for FanDuel users, putting up at 45 points in four of his outings, with his 58-point gem against the Tigers in his last start marking the fourth time in his last nine starts that he’s hit the 50-point barrier. Since the All-Star Break, Lynn has been whiffing batters at a prolific clip, striking out 47 over 33 innings of work.

Perhaps the additions of Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes will give the Indians a modicum of 8/7 DFS hope in the second game of the twin-bill at Progressive Field. Lynn won his only other appearance against the Indians, holding them to six hits while striking out nine over seven innings on June 17. Considering bullpen issues might be a problem, keep in mind that Lynn has thrown at least 100 pitches in 21 of his 23 starts.

Max Fried, ATL at MIN

DK ($6,100) FD ($7,700)

Fried has won each of his three starts since the All-Star Break, holding opponents to a .233 batting average. I understand if there’s a sense of 8/7 DFS caution in pitching Fried against a Twins lineup that raked four homers in Tuesday’s loss. Fried’s fly ball rate of 21.8% works in his favor, as does the fact opponents have a modest 36.1% hard contact rate. You also have to like Fried’s 21:3 K:BB margin over 17 innings of daylight baseball, of which he will be starting in today.


8/7 DFS Pitching Mid-Tier Options

Jordan Yamamoto, MIA at NYM

DK ($7,400), FD ($6,800)

Away from pitching in front of hundreds and hundreds of fans in Miami, Yamamoto has been more effective, sporting a 2.86 ERA and a dazzling .135 OBA. Righties in the Mets’ lineup will be hard-pressed to hammer him in 8/7 DFS, as he’s allowed just one homer in 91 at-bats against them to go along with a .176/.286/.275 slash. If he stays away from the walks (4.13 BB/9), then Yamamoto could be a solid value here.

Steven Matz, NYM vs. MIA

DK ($7,700) FD ($7,800)

Hint: Don’t find your offense in this game. Despite going from 58 FanDuel points to a mere eight in his last start at the Pirates, Matz is a good play against a Marlins offense that has gone .225/.279/.388 since the ASB. I wouldn’t worry too much about Matz’s 1.64 HR/9 rate; after all, the Marlins are dead last in the majors with just 93 homers while a team .658 OPS also ranks 30th.

8/7 DFS Pitching GPP Punt Plays

Ivan Nova, CWS at DET

DK ($7,000), FD ($6,600)

The Tigers’ OPS+ of 77 ties the Marlins for last in the majors, but the Motor City Kitties own the basement when it comes to Adjusted Batting Runs, where they dwell with a -131.2 mark. This is music to the ears of Nova in 8/7 DFS, who has allowed just two earned runs over his last 19 innings. Nova has a 4.47 ERA in day games and shows considerably more strikeout punch on the road (50) than at home (35).

Dustin May, LAD vs. STL

DK ($7.600), FD ($5,800)

It won’t hurt to give May a look. He gave up nine hits and three earned runs in his big league debut last Friday. What stands out with May is that he didn’t allow a walk in his 5.2 innings of work. He also didn’t allow a homer, something that could pose a threat to a Cardinals lineup filled with middling power, evidenced by its .163 Isolated Power rate, placing them 23rd.
