DFS Winners and Losers: Hakuna Mazara



We had a 12-game DFS slate on Independence Day in MLB. All prices and point values are based on DraftKings.

DFS Winners

Nomar Mazara ($4,500)

Mazara had a big game at the DH spot yesterday in the series finale against the division-rival Los Angeles Angels. He went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and a run scored. Mazara now has a .271 BA with this performance. He has been hitting well recently and should be in your DFS lineup for today’s action.

Mazara’s DFS Outlook

Mazara has been heating up in his previous 15 games. In that span, he was 16-for-53 (.302) with three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs. He also struck out less than once per game during that span. He is getting solid contact during his at-bats and driving the ball. The Rangers are in Minnesota to face the Twins and Martin Perez, who has a 1.36 WHIP. Mazara will be a cheaper DFS option to provide a couple of hits in today’s slate.

Marcus Semien ($3,800)

Semien looked locked in at the plate last night against the Minnesota Twins. He was 2-for-4 with both hits leaving the park, five RBI, a walk and two runs scored out of the leadoff spot. He had a very productive game but do not expect him to repeat it in DFS.

Semien’s DFS Outlook

Semien had a great game last night but is not having a strong couple of weeks. He is batting .235 with 3 HRs and 11 RBI in the last 15 games. If you extract yesterday’s game, those numbers look pedestrian. Semien and the Athletics are traveling to Seattle to face Yusei Kikuchi and the Mariners. Expect Semien to cool off a bit and steer clear of him in DFS.

DFS Losers

Zach Eflin ($8,100)

Eflin struggled yesterday against the division-rival Atlanta Braves. He went just three innings and allowed seven runs (six earned) on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts in a losing effort. Eflin should rebound on the next DFS slate he appears on.

Eflin’s DFS Outlook

Zach Eflin has been struggling recently. In his previous seven starts, he is 2-4 with a 5.45 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. This season has been difficult for Eflin but he has a weak offensive team to face coming out of the All-Star break. Depending on how the Phillies manage their rotation, he could be facing either the Mets or the Nationals. Both teams shouldn’t pose too big a threat and with an expected DFS price tag of under $8,000 he should be a lock on the slate.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. ($5,500)

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had a tough time at the plate against the division-rival Boston Red Sox. He finished hitless in his five at-bats with a strikeout. Gurriel has been on fire lately and a rough day DFS had to be expected eventually. Expect Gurriel continue hitting on today’s slate.

Gurriel’s DFS Outlook

Gurriel Jr. has been on a tear lately. He is batting .328 with 11 HRz, 28 RBI and 25 runs in his last 30 games played. That includes two games where he appeared for one at-bat, which makes his performance even more incredible. Toronto continues their homestand into the All-Star break when they host the Baltimore Orioles and Dylan Bundy, who has a 4.91 ERA. Expect Gurriel to continue to swing a hot DFS bat today.

Injury Update

The Tampa Bay Rays placed All-Star Brandon Lowe on the 10-day IL retroactive to July 3 with a right shin bone bruise.
