Kyle Seager and 7 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays For Monday, 8/8

Monday is a very interesting time in daily fantasy baseball, both because DraftKings pushes out it’s huge GPP (just a $4 entry for a shot at $50k!), while you also may have to decide between loading up bats at Coors or paying up for an elite ace like Jose Fernandez or Johnny Cueto.

The Coors angle is more trickier than usual, as the mighty Texas Rangers visit the HR-inducing stadium and obviously the Colorado Rockies bats are also to be considered.

Then again, perhaps it’s super easy to go for hitting tonight, as much of the pitching beyond the slate’s top two aces is inflated, Jose has been quite weak in his last two trips to the mound and Cueto is arguably one of the more erratic hurlers around.

Cueto doesn’t have the benefit of playing at home tonight, faces one of the best pitchers in the game and also gets a Marlins offense that is far from a cakewalk. Jose doesn’t have it so easy, either, as the Giants can bring the big bats and the last time he faced them he produced a mediocre 9.5 fantasy points.

See where we’re trending here? For the big GPP, it’s starting to look like a no-brainer to leave these elite arms to other DFS gamers and instead target value pitching and COORS. Either way, you’ll need some value along the way, so let’s sniff out the best values at each major position at DraftKings tonight:

SP: Michael Wacha – Cardinals ($6.4k)

Tonight’s pitching slate isn’t even safe up top, so no one should be shocked that there are landmines to be found just about everywhere.

The dude is in a serious groove and he’s at home at a really low price. Sure, he could finally face plant here, but he’s more than worth the gamble.

Got some DFS baseball value plays of your own? Love/hate the ones we’ve picked out for Monday’s slate? Let us hear it in the comments below!
