Welcome to our MLB DFS Building Blocks, DraftKings and FanDuel picks for 6/25/22! 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…
Pitching tonight looks bleak as there are no real clear cut options. Webb looks like solid value here with a date against the Reds. His strikeout rate isn’t great but sits at 22% and Cincinlnati hasn’t been very good on offense. More than half their lineup strikes out over 20% of the time. Logan also has a whiff% north of 25% so he makes batters miss. He is cheap across both sites and a solid play tonight.
It is crazy to be writing up a pitcher going up against Los Angeles but options are scarce. That being said, Fried has been pretty solid this year across the board. Against this current lineup he has a stirkeout rate of nearly 30% while only walking 4% of batters. Hard contact in the 35% range an about five pitchers he throws more than 10% of the time. He is relatively cheap too at $8600 on draftkings. FanDuel however he is the most expensive pitcher and will be strictly big GPPS over there. HE also has a ground ball rate north of 50% so even if he isn’t stirking them all out he will still be able to end innings.
BONUS: In GPPS i think there is a wider field to choose from that includes Gilbert, Snell, Eflin and Faedo.
All signs are pointing towards Buxton playing tonight. He has missed some time due to a case of tendinitis but it looks to be cleared up. You couldn’t ask for a better matchup for him against Antonio Senzatela. Buxton is looking at an xwOBA of nearly .400 and humidity should be about 50% which only helps out batters more. Furthermore, Byron has hit the majority of his homeruns this year off fastballs and sliders. Ironically they’re Antonio’s two favorite pitches to throw by a wide margin and his wOBA on those are both at .450. You can use him as a one off and a MUST in stacks.
This guy has fit in quite well in Atlanta and gets a solid matchup tonight against Mitch White. Olson is getting hard contact more than half of his at bats and has an xwOBA of .368. We have alredy seen his double dong upside this year and I think there is a decent possibility we see it again tonight. He doesn’t strike out a ton and also gets walked nearly 13% of his plate appearences. White doesn’t appear to have bad stats. That being said, he has faced some of the more mediocre offenses in the majority of his starts. He should have plenty of difficulty taming Matt here along with the rest of these Braves bats. He also has smashed 80% of his homeruns off White’s favorite pitch, the fastball. Temperatures should be hot again in Atlanta to go along with some fierce humidity. He makes for a solid one off here and a great way to start off your builds.
OLSON DOUBLE DONG
