Welcome to our MLB DFS Building Blocks, DraftKings and FanDuel picks for 6/11/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall plays for today’s main slate. We have already found a lot of success to start the year off and there is plenty more to come! A big KARMA takedown is imminent and only a matter of time. I will be providing Core Plays for every main slate (and day baseball) this season — you can gain access to that as well as our premium discord here. You can also try out the Core Plays package with a $5 day pass. Let’s get to the plays…
It is bittersweet for me to be writing him up as I have used Arizona a ton in DFS this year and they have done great for me. They had trouble hitting off of Gibson yesterday though. Wheeler is a better pitcher than the former which makes me really like this matchup. All but one batter for this confirmed order for Arizona strikesout less than 20% of the time. At the same time, Wheeler boasts a 28.5% strikeout rate to go along with hard hit contact at a mere 32%. He has an array of different pitches he likes to us too which should keep these D-Backs guessing through out the day. Zach is my clear cut SP1 and a very viable option in all formats for FanDuel as well.
Now I have zero issues with going to Gausman for SP2. Morton simply has just as good of a matchup for a much cheaper price tag. Morton hasn’t been elite by any means and it shows with the 7k range price. You just can’t deny that the Pirates have been one of the worst offenses in the league so far this year. We don’t normally think of Charlie has a high strikeout guy because he isn’t but he could get to 7-9 here against Pittsburgh. 20 FP’s from him is more than sufficent for his price and you can use your savings on some more high dollar bats.
BONUS: If you’re looking for a low owned play here than I wuld take a stand on Frankie Montas. Cleveland has some batters to wory about no doubt but Montas comes with plenty of upside and nobody will be on him.
Alright, anyone who has been using my cores and watching the Tiktoks knows I have been high on Baltimore in general the last couple of days. They have continued to let me down multiple nights in a row. That being said, I am yet again going to go back to them today. Mountcastle in particular is one the better value plays on this early slate. Lets start off with Daniel Lynch who is starting for the Royals. He gives up hard hit contact nearly 50% of the time and has a strikeout % under 20. On top of that, he is also giving up walks nearly 10% of the time. More than half of his homeruns this year have come off of fastballs which just happens to be Lynch’s most used pitch. Did I mention his hard hit contact is nearly 50% as well? Because that is a thing too.
I have written him up a couple of times this year and he has come through for me. He usually flies under the radar and produces just like the other big dogs. He is currently striking out only 15% of the time and also has hard hit contact half the time (50%). Ryan Feltner actually hasn’t looked bad so far in his young career. That being said, Manny is matchup proof to me and even the righty on righty doesn’t bother me. While Feltner does strikeout 26% of hitters he also gives up a ton of runs. So far he has given up 13 runs in 4 outings. Besides his fastball he only throws one other pitch more than 10% of the time. Making him very predictable.
Mountcastle DOUBLE DONG!
