FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – August 14th

Because we got lots of manufacturing up and down the lineup, we had a real fine night with previous nights FanDuel MLB DFS Picks.
Our pitcher, Domingo German, got things off to a wonderful start as he hurled seven innings of all both two-run ball with seven strikeouts in a winning campaign over the Baltimore Orioles. The right-hander allowed a pair of home runs which accounted for all of the damage done off of him in that one.
Our Cubs stack that is three-man did a great job. Nicholas Castellanos stayed white-hot, especially against left-handed pitching, with a solo home run off of Jason Vargas and singled and scored an extra run also. Kris Bryant climbed and walked Javier Baez walked recorded the RBI, but made good on his unique stolen base splits against left-handed pitching with a steal from Vargas, his 10th of the year. Quality manufacturing here.
We did really well in our three-man Tigers stack. Jake Rogers kept the power stroke going with a home run in this one to add to his walk. Travis Demeritte had another great game that included a set of singles, a pair of runs scored and yet another stolen base, his third at just his 12th huge league game. Eventually Brandon Dixon supplied a double but sadly also struck four times out. However, we received exceptional, low-owned production in this trio.
I rostered two one-offs last night, and also one of them delivered some big-time harm as Brian Dozier continued his assault on left handed pitching with a home run from southpaw Alex Wood. It is much better than nothing, although fellow one-off Josh VanMeter failed to offer value with only a single at the nighttime.
It was a wonderful night all night and Ill seem to make it 2 in a row on tonights little slate.
P — Aaron Nola (PHI) — $10,100 vs. CHC
The top arm with this record is left-hander Clayton Kershaw because he chooses on the Miami Marlins in Miami tonightbut I am likely to pivot to right-hander Aaron Nola because he chooses on the Cubs at his home playground of Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia this evening. Im going GPP on this lineup tonight, although kershaw is the obvious cash drama. Besides, Nola was outstanding at home that year where he has submitted a 3.07 ERA, 3.57 FIP, 3.73 xFIP and a 10.78 K/9 across more than 90 home innings this year in comparison to his 4.63 ERA, 4.99 FIP and also 9.11 K/9 across almost half of the innings in contrast to his work in your home. Certainly, we have something to work with here as Nola has been very good at home more frequently than not this year despite a shaky start. His last start at home came from the White Sox when he hurled seven innings of both one-run ball with 10 punchouts to boot up. That marks the third time in the last six begins at home where the 2018 NL Cy Young candidate has attained 10 strikeouts. The Cubs are a dangerous crime to be sure since they rank seventh in wOBA versus right-handed pitching, but that fact combined with his cost could keep Nola lower owned than you might think. I am willing to roll the dice tonight.
C/1B — Jake Rogers (DET) — $3,000 vs. SEA
Once again I will be rolling up with a set of three-man piles in this 1 tonight and then rostering a few one-offs to complement the piles. My three-man Tigers stack kicks off with Rogers because I am picking him on both Miguel Cabrera and Brandon Dixon at similar price points at the C/1B place. In other words, Rogers is the latest bat of those three and I want to continue him while hes swinging that strong stick hes put on display in three separate stops this season, a journey which started at Double-A. He is likely to play nearly everyday at this stage given his elite defense behind the platebut Rogers could turn into a wonderful source of power from beneath the dish as he is homered four times within only 11 matches and 44 plate appearances at the MLB level this season. If you combine all three levels, Rogers has smacked 18 home runs. He struck left-handed pitching to get a great .844 OPS in Triple-A before his phone up, and thats what hell watch tonight against southpaw Marco Gonzales. Rogers is currently two for 6 with two home runs from left-handers at the big league level including last nights shot from southpaw Yusei Kikuchi. I think some more power could be generated within this matchup tonight.
2B — Niko Goodrum (DET) — $3,200 vs. SEA
Goodrum wasnt part of my Tigers heap last night due to cost and the cosmetics of the lineup, but hes likely be in this 1 tonight because he will produce a wrap-around pile with Rogers and a Tigers outfielder within this one tonight. I desired him in last nights heap since his bat is productive against left handed pitching, even though he can sport some exceptional splits. The extra-base electricity is increased against righties since Goodrum possesses a .173 ISO against righties compared to some .159 markers against lefties. From there on out, the Goodrums divides prefer facing left handed pitching. Goodrum is hitting .364 with a .941 OPS, .393 wOBA along with also a 147 wRC+ on the season against left handed pitching. The numbers are especially better on the street against lefties, but I am not overly concerned because he doubled in the nights match and scored a pair of runs against the southpaw Kikuchi. There is also the simple fact that Goodrum has been very good because the return in the All-Star fracture as he owns a .213 ISO, .853 OPS, .355 wOBA along with 122 wRC+ because July 12th. Ultimately, we have some stolen foundation as Goodrum has swiped 12 foundations.
3B — Sean Rodriguez (PHI) — $2,200 vs. CHC
My stacks are not just on the cheap side, particularly my main pile, therefore I had to obtain a couple of value one-offs to make my lineup fit under the salary cap on this slate tonight. I think Ive found some value in the bat of Sean Rodriguez as he takes on the Chicago Cubs along with left-hander Cole Hamels. By doing harm against left-wing pitching during his 16, rodriguez has made his big league cash. In his career against southpaws, Rodriguez possesses a .168 ISO, .763 OPS, .336 wOBA along with a 113 wRC+. Those numbers are especially superior compared to the .146 ISO, .625 OPS, .275 wOBA along with 71 wRC+ against right-wing pitching. The splits are wide again this year as he has smacked every one of the homers against left-handed pitching in only 43 at-bats against them. He is hitting .279 with a .233 ISO, .879 OPS, .370 wOBA along with also a 129 wRC+ from left-handed pitching this season because little 43 at-bat sample size. He has also produced a .350 ISO 1.041 OPS, .425 wOBA and 164 wRC+ in the home against lefties this year at a 20 at-bats sample size as two of the homers this season have come in that span. Needless to say, we have something to work with here concerning expressing value from Rodriguezs bat tonight.
SS — Charlie Culberson (ATL) — $2,100 vs. NYM
The last one-off of the lineup is the Braves Charlie Culberson who comes in a near-minimum cost against left-hander Steven Matz and also the New York Mets. Its been a tale of two seasons for Matz awarded his home/away divides this season. At home, he possesses a eye-popping 2.14 ERA, but he has been brutalized on the street to get a 6.79 ERA while his 6.43 FIP and 5.23 xFIP along with some 2.59 HR/9 around the road do not exactly paint a much bigger picture. This might be a very good thing for Culberson along with also the Braves as a Braves stack could very well be used tonight as well. Nevertheless, I like Culberson as a worth. He is enjoying yet another successful year in part time duty as evidenced by his own .345 wOBA and 110 wRC+ on the season. However, Culberson is doing some serious damage against left-handed pitching since he owns a huge .405 typical, .262 ISO, 1.085 OPS, .449 wOBA along with a 178 wRC+ over the season versus southpaw pitching. The sample is small in only 42 at-bats, but the creation is actual. Not one of the strikes went for extra-bases, but Culberson is just 2 for 4 with a stolen base in his brief history against Matz. I believe there is a whole lot of upside in both of these one-off value .
OF — Travis Demeritte (DET) — $2,900 vs. SEA
Completing our three-man Tigers pile is Demeritte who proceeds to impress because coming over in the Braves in the trade deadline and immediately getting his promotion to the big leagues for the first time in his profession. His cross-category possible was on display in the nights match as he also recorded a pair of singles, scored two runs and used his brakes to sneak his third foundation of this year in just his 12th MLB match. For what its worth, he also added four rebounds in Triple-A from the Braves organization before the transaction. It was nice to see him have any success against a left-hander in last nights match as he hadnt done so a very small sample before last nights competition, at least in the big leagues. At Triple-A, Demeritte punished southpaws to get a .954 OPS this season while nine of the 20 home runs in Triple-A came against a left-hander in roughly half as many at-bats as he had against righties. Demeritte has revealed wonderful consistency because arriving to Detroit as he is recorded at least one hit in nine of the 12 games, for example in each of the final seven. The 24-year-old is place to acquire a long look in the Tigers outfield for the rest of the year and I will search for him to carry on to make the most of the opportunity again tonight.
OF — Mike Trout (LAA) — $4,800 vs. PIT
Even the Angels and Pirates continue their show from Anaheim tonight along with the Angels get a real nice home matchup from right-hander Chris Archer who has largely fought on the road this year. Archer enters this only sporting a 6.66 ERA on the road this season while he is allowed a whopping 2.05 HR/9 on the road as well. His 4.94 FIP and 4.32 xFIP suggest theres some favorable regression to be had for Archer on the road this year, but to be very honest I will only roll three Angels who struck right-handed pitching for lots of home run power and watch where it takes me. Trout is currently competing for a home run crown this season and his breaks prefer this matchup. Even the righty-swinging Trout has exceptional quantities versus righties than lefties in the kind of a .389 ISO, 1.136 OPS, .452 wOBA along with also a 191 wRC+ versus righties on this season. His numbers versus righties at home are similar. We get some stolen foundation uspide with Trout as well as hes two steals. Archer is prone to the stolen base plus I enjoy the fact that Trout includes three steals against him despite having a .227 batting average at 22 career at-bats against him. Nevertheless, awarded home run woes this year and Archers street work, Trout is again a high-ceiling perform tonight.
OF — Shohei Ohtani (LAA) — $3,500 vs. PIT
Person that is next up in our Angels heap is Ohtani who proceeds to hit against pitching for lots of power . Insert in his speed on the basepaths and we have plenty of upside in this matchup tonight. Entering play tonight, Ohtani possesses a .245 ISO, .902 OPS, .371 wOBA and 136 wRC+ on the season versus right-handed pitching. Furthermore, he has posted a .320 ISO, 1.076 OPS, .431 wOBA along with 176 wRC+ on the year against lefties at home. Ohtani has used his pace to steal 10 bases on the year, and nine of which have come against right-handed pitching. It has been a second half to the superstar that is two-way he enjoyed a night and also has caught fire as well. Over his past four games, he has gone for 20 (.400) with two doubles, a triple, four runs scored, six RBI and a stolen base to boot up. He went 2 for 5 with a triple, a double, two runs, two RBI and a stolen base. Ohtani is one of those bata you need to ride when sexy and thats just what Ill do in a positive home matchup in which he does his very best work.
UTIL — Justin Upton (LAA) — $3,100 vs. PIT
Upton has seen activity in just 40 games this season because of an accident that cost him a major chunk of the first half of the season, but the man is displaying some reverse-splits and mashing pitching in 2019. Entering this one tonight, Upton sports a .238 ISO, .871 OPS, .360 wOBA and 129 wRC+ to the season against right-wing pitching. The numbers are better on the road against righties, but given the small sample Im not worried about that to be honest. This marks the second consecutive season hes posted some showy reverse-splits since he assembled a .232 ISO, .875 OPS, .373 wOBA along with 141 wRC+ against righties last season compared to some .125 ISO, .593 OPS, .265 wOBA along with 67 wRC+ against lefties this year. He has not conducted much this year with just one steal so much, but he has listed 22 steals within the previous two seasons and using Archer allowing his fair share of steals, perhaps the stolen base upside down has a few ticks in the ideal way in this one. Im more intrigued by the power upside to make positive and this three-man Angels heap brings tons of this from a pitcher permitting a lot of home runs this season.
