FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – October 16th

Our FanDuel MLB DFS Picks were looking good from last night after our Nationals stack did some notable damage from the first inning of the series-clinching win on the Cardinals, but they didnt score another run for the remaining part of the night that sent our selections back into profitless land.
Since he held the Cardinals to 1 Patrick Corbin, our starting pitcher, was dealing through four innings. But, Corbin ran into trouble in the fifth, allowing three earned runs in the inning, costing himself that the top quality start from the procedure. He finished with 12 strikeouts, however, went only five innings and allowed four earned runs. That considering that the first four innings also hurt.
Our Nationals pile came from the gate sexy in the Nats seven-run first inning, but they didnt find much else done out there on out. Juan Soto led the way with an RBI, a double, a run and a single. Adam Eaton scored doubled and walked while Anthony Rendon singled and needed an RBI and Howie Kendrick walked and scored a run.
Also not helping our cause is that the zeros our mini-stack that is Yankees put up. Didi Gregorius came up with the bases loaded in the first inning and grounded out. He came by a three-run home run in the eighth inning about a foot. It wasnt supposed to be regardless of a few the Yankees obtaining some baserunners.
A one-off outfielder, michael Brantley, walked, clutching two and scored a run while our other one-off, Kolten Wong, singled and scored a run to continue a productive postseason that finished.
Lets turn our attention to tonights single-game slate that features Yankees and the Astros in Game 4 in Yankee Stadium. The weather doesnt look promising with this game happening, but here are some picks for GPPs tonight when it will.
MVP — Gary Sanchez (NYY) — $5,500 vs. HOU
Both clubs are going to be using their bullpens if the match is pushed back by a day, even though that could change in the event the sport indeed takes place tonight. Im not so much worried because we are not sure who these batters will face during the game. Rather, Im going on details and feel. My feel is that Gary Sanchez will break out at some stage. This guy hit 34 home runs in the season despite logging fewer than 450 plate appearances and playing just 106 matches. The huge .293 ISO he posted is all about the .271 indicate he owns because of his career though a low batting average and percentage lowered most of his metrics. Still, I here only for the power, and he has lots of it. Sure, theres a great deal of powerful bats within this series and the truth is Sanchez has scuffled to the tune of a .095 average and .335 OPS. He owns just a .174 moderate and .590 OPS for his postseason career in plate appearances. Sanchez hasnt homered since September 3rd. On the other hand, Sanchez, the two matches where he has homered has homered twice. This slate has been as much run with by him and I think we can extract a huge amount of value in gaining twice his points.
All-Star — Aaron Judge (NYY) — $8,500 vs. HOU
The same cannot be said for Aaron Judge while Sanchez has struggled to produce in these playoffs in addition to his own career to the point. Judge is having a postseason here in 2019, hitting .318 with an .899 OPS due to some homer, five hits and strikes in four of six games including two efforts at the time. His postseason resume speaks for itself since hes hit .270 using a major .971 OPS. He is homered eight times and added four doubles. Consequently, Judge appears as good a bet as any participant on this slate to perform to some ball that is very long. He launched 27 home runs despite playing just 102 games with his .267 ISO coming under his .285 profession mark. His 141 wRC fell below his 152 wRC+?? to get his career. Certainly, all these numbers are of the monster variety. Judge hit lefties for greater energy than righties, and it would be awesome to see him put an at-bat from a lefty tonight contemplating his .326 ISO, 1.282 OPS, .523 wOBA along with 236 wRC+ in home against lefties this season. That should be sufficient for Astros boss A.J. Hinch to avoid employing a lefty in any way costs contrary to Judge, but let us just look for him to keep his postseason bat sexy in this 1 tonight.
UTIL — Gleyber Torres (NYY) — $7,500 vs. HOU
Completing our three-man Yankees stack is Torres who is the very ideal bat the Yankees have had in this series for this point. Torres accounted in last nights Game 3 loss using a home run, his second of the show and third within the previous four games the Yankees would do for all of the damage. Torres scuffled in the Yankees 2018 postseason which saw them ousted from the rival Red Sox in the ALDS, however hes been on fire in these playoffs, hitting .417 with a massive 1.440 OPS to this stage thanks to these 3 long balls but also four doubles and three walks as well. Torres was excellent in heading 1 for 2 with that homer and a pair of walks in last nights game against Gerrit Cole and Co.. The great news with Torres is his splits this season proved largely equivalent, especially from a power standpoint a she submitted a .257 ISO against left-handed pitching and a .256 ISO against righties. Although the bat proved to be productive against lefties from an overall standpoint This makes him quite matchup-proof with this one tonight. Not much reason to be avoiding the bat that the Yankees have for this 1 tonight.
UTIL — Michael Brantley (HOU) — $7,000 vs. NYY
Ill also be utilizing a two-man Astros mini-stack in this one tonight as Michael Brantley has picked it up at the plate of late night although not hitting a whole lot of power at the moment. Still, the short-porch in right field at Yankee Stadium will change this in a rush to its outfielder. Brantley has recently recorded a hit in each of his last four matches including a pair of two-hit outings in that moment, after scuffling in these match. One of those excursions came when he recorded a set of singles while he also walked and scored a run. With his slash line back to respectability for these playoffs, the electricity of Brantley ought to be next to come around. After all, he did hit 22 homers using a .191 ISO at the regular season. His .226 ISO and .928 OPs against righties were much higher than his marks against lefties, but with a bullpen match it is possible the Yankees ensure Brantley confronts a lefty more frequently than not tonight. Nevertheless, the bat is clearly heating up here and I would like to be about for if he uses that short porch in directly.
UTIL — Yordan Alvarez (HOU) — $6,500 vs. NYY
Finishing this lineup and also Astros mini-stack is Alvarez whos just another player but if the normal season is any indication, his electricity shouldnt be held for much longer. Alvarez is going to win AL Rookie of the Year honors as he clubbed 27 home runs in only 87 games after becoming promoted from Triple-A, good for a huge .342 ISO. He is hit 50 home runs in only 153 matches this season Alvarez hit in only 56 minor league games this season if you wish to add in the 23 home runs. His 178 wRC+ from the season puts struck bat over league average from a production perspective. He began the postseason popular against the Rays with three doubles over the first four games of the postseason, nevertheless Alvarez has not recorded a single hit in this show also does not have one within his last four games dating back to Game 5 against the Rays. Hes down to some .207/ / .281/ / .310 slash lineup at the playoffs, but thats likely to change, its merely a matter of time. Surprisingly, Alvarez posted an identical .342 ISO against both right-handed and left pitching this year, so I look for his ability.
