FanDuel MLB: Sunday Value Plays

FanDuel MLB: Sunday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel MLB series.

PITCHER

Tanner Roark, WAS at PHI ($8,300): Roark has been very consistent to start the season with fantasy points ranging from 21 to 40 in six starts, including one in Colorado. He now gets to face the Phillies, who come in with a strikeout rate of 24.1 percent against right-handed pitching, the seventh-highest in the league. Almost every pitcher priced higher than Roark is due for some regression to the, which in almost every case is a negative outcome.

CATCHER

Chris Herrmann, ARI at COL ($3,000): He's a lefty versus a righty in Colorado, which means he should be in a good spot. Herrmann already has two home runs in limited playing time this season, while opposing starter Tyler Chatwood has allowed a .359 wOBA to left-handed hitters at home.

FIRST BASE

Logan Morrison, TOR at TB ($2,800): Morrison has homered in three of his last seven games and has the splits advantage as a lefty versus a right-handed pitcher. He has a .408 wOBA this season against right-handed pitching, while Joe Biagini is making his first career major league start.

SECOND BASE

Devon Travis, TOR at TB ($2,200): This is the cheapest Travis has been all season ,and while he's not hitting leadoff anymore he's still batting in the middle of the lineup. Last season, he had a .360 wOBA against right-handed pitching and he'll will get the handedness advantage against Alex Cobb on Sunday.

THIRD BASE

Jake Lamb, ARI at COL ($4,700): Lamb hit cleanup Saturday night, and he should be in the same spot Sunday in Coors Field. The difference is he's facing a right-handed starting pitcher, with Chatwood's struggles detailed earlier.

SHORTSTOP

Daniel Robertson, TB vs. TOR ($2,100): The rookie appears to be adjusting nicely to big league pitching and now has three home runs in his last seven games. Along with the home runs he's walked seven times, showing good patience at the plate. He has a good matchup against Joe Biagini and should get into the second-tier pitching of the Blue Jays in the later innings.

OUTFIELD

Tommy Pham, STL at ATL ($2,000): Pham is priced at the minimum and has already homered in the two games he's played for the Cards. He now faces off against R.A. Dickey, who gave up a .337 wOBA to right-handed hitters a season ago.

Brandon Guyer, CLE at KC ($2,100): Guyer is a nice punt play in the outfield given he crushed left-handed pitching last season, finishing with a .437 wOBA against them. Meanwhile, opposing starter Danny Duffy has given up a .333 wOBA to right-handed hitters over his brief career.

Curtis Granderson, NYM vs. MIA ($2,400): Granderson appears to have turned the proverbial corner at the plate with 12.4, 25.2 and 25.1 fantasy points in his last three games, respecitvely. He'll now get to face Jose Urena, who gave up a .358 wOBA to left-handed hitters last season. Teammate Michael Conforto is a solid option in this game as well.
