MLB DFS: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks and lineups for Saturday, September 14, 2019


As we roll into the final couple weeks of the 2019 MLB season, MLB DFS owner will continue to try to take advantage of the liveliest baseball in MLB history. Orioles shortstop Jonathan Villar’s home run on Wednesday set a new single-season record for the MLB with 6,106 home runs for the year total and Mets rookie Pete Alonso is the current MLB home run leader with 45. However, Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez are right behind him with 45 homers and everybody mentioned have been profitable plays in MLB DFS lineups at various points this season. However, winning big in MLB DFS tournaments and cash games on FanDuel and DraftKings is about identifying potential breakout performers and you’ll definitely want to see the MLB DFS picks from daily Fantasy millionaire Mike McClure before you set your optimal MLB DFS strategy for Saturday.

When it comes to MLB, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

He got off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x in the first half of the season. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. He cashed huge in three consecutive tournaments in mid-June, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup generated a whopping 185.9 points. He also had an optimal lineup on FanDuel that cashed 8x for followers right before the All-Star break.

And on Friday, he was all over San Francisco Giants starter Tyler Beede on both sites. The result: Beede threw 6.1 innings of shutout ball — returning over 4x for players on FanDuel. Anyone who has followed McClure has seen some huge returns. Now, McClure has set his sights on Saturday’s slates.

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday is San Diego Padres first baseman Eric Hosmer at $3,500 on FanDuel and $4,600 on DraftKings. Hosmer and the Padres are at Coors Field on Saturday night and that lively ballpark and a couple of struggling pitchers has produced a whopping total of 13 in Vegas.

After hitting just 18 home runs in his first season as a Padre and posting a .720 OPS, Hosmer is already 20 homers into his season with 93 RBI and an OPS of .763. Rockies starter Peter Lambert is sporting a massive 6.86 ERA heading into his start against San Diego on Saturday and Hosmer has got a two-run single off him in three career at-bats against the youngster. Given his uptick in power production and the fact that they’re in Coors Field on Saturday night, play Hosmer with hopes of getting multiple hits and XBH pop.

Another facet of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy Saturday is rostering Rockies shortstop Trevor Story ($4,200 on FanDuel, $5,300 on DraftKings). Story is coming off a two home-run game on Friday night and he’s also got a solid matchup on Satuday against Padres starter Eric Lauer.

Story has absolutely feasted off Lauer throughout his career, with six hits in 12 at-bats including two home runs and two doubles with eight RBI. He’s got an enormous 1.738 OPS against Lauer and the Rockies have a .982 OPS against him as a team, meaning he should have plenty of run-scoring and producing opportunities. Story has 32 homers and 20 stolen bases this season and he’s a must-play with a .911 OPS for the year entering Saturday.

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
