on

Welcome to the MLB DFS 9-10-20 DraftKings Value Picks article!

We’ve got a six-game slate today with some valuable pairings.

The cheap pairing is Arizona’s Christian Walker ($3,700) and Eduardo Escobar ($3,900). You get two power-hitting sluggers who can slam their way to victory.

The intermediate pairing is the Reds’ Mike Moustakas ($4,600) and Jesse Winker ($3,900). You don’t have to worry about the wasteland that is second base, and you get a valuable outfielder for a low price.

The expensive pairing is the Dodgers’ Corey Seager ($5,300) and AJ Pollock ($3,900). You get two hitters in one of MLB’s best offenses who have a matchup against Madison Bumgarner (who has been pitching hot garbage all season).

Six-Game Slate

Boston Red Sox (Mike Kickham) vs. Tampa Bay Rays (Josh Fleming)
Philadelphia Phillies (Jake Arrieta) vs. Miami Marlins (Sandy Alcantara)
Baltimore Orioles (Keegan Akin) vs. New York Yankees (Gerrit Cole)
Cincinnati Reds (Sonny Gray) vs. Chicago Cubs (Adbert Alzolay)
San Francisco Giants (Drew Smyly) vs. San Diego Padres (Chris Paddack)
Los Angeles Dodgers (Dustin May) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (Madison Bumgarner)

Pitcher

Sandy Alcantara, Miami Marlins – $6,600

Alcantara looked great in his last start; six innings pitched, eight strikeouts, and only one run.

He will be facing off the Phillies. Philadelphia is lowly ranked in strikeouts in the overall season rankings, but they have been one of the heaviest strikeout teams in the past 30 days. Alcantara should get plenty of strikeouts with his respectable 12.1 swinging strike rate.

The last time He pitched against the Phillies, he struck out seven batters.

Catcher

Christian Vazquez, Boston Red Sox – $3,800

Vazquez has been a reliable option in lineups this year. He had eight hits in his previous five games, four walks, three runs, and one stolen base.

Vazquez is $1,100 cheaper than top dog Austin Nola and has a decent matchup against Josh Fleming, who gave up two home runs in his last start.

First Base

Christian Walker, Arizona Diamondbacks – $3,700

Walker has been a great hitter at home this season, .288 AVG, 19 RBIs, four home runs. Now, he is facing Dustin May, who has struggled on the road this season.

The last time May pitched in Chase Field, he faced five hitters and allowed four hits and three earned runs.

May is also struggling to keep the ball in the ballpark this season; he is averaging one home run per start.

Second Base

Jason Kipnis, Chicago Cubs – $3,300

Kipnis has struggled against Sonny Gray throughout his career, but Gray struggled in this last outing. Kipnis has been terrific in Wrigley Field, and his home field advantage should help him overcome Gray.

Kipnis has been fantastic at Wrigley Field this season, .295 AVG, 13 hits, 10 RBIs, six runs, and three home runs.

Always go with the excellent hitter in his home park.

Kipnis is out of the Cubs lineup. Baltimore’s Pat Valaika will be good replacement. He has 12 hits, six runs, five RBIs, and one home run in his last ten games.

Third Base

Brian Anderson, Miami Marlins – $3,300

Anderson has been the Philadelphia crusher this season; actually, he has been the Phillies’ nightmare throughout his career.

Anderson has a .303 AVG, 23 RBIs, 21 Runs, and seven home runs for his career against the Phillies.

He has a .300 AVG, 12 walks, three hits, three runs, three RBIs, one home run, and 34 fantasy points (DraftKings) against Philadelphia this season.

Shortstop

Corey Seager, Los Angeles Dodgers – $5,300

In his previous 10 games, Seager had 15 hits, nine RBIs, eight runs, three home runs, and one stolen base.

He is $700 cheaper than Fernado Tatis Jr., so you’ll get a top hitting shortstop and will not have to break the bank on him.

Outfielder

Trent Grisham, San Diego Padres – $4,800

Grisham has a matchup against Drew Smyly, who has a career 4.14 ERA and has never had double-digit wins in his entire career. Do you need any more reasons?

He had 14 hits, 10 runs, four RBIs, two stolen bases, and one home run in his last ten games if you need more reasons.
