Welcome to the Daily Four Pack where we share four core players on DraftKings that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Sunday, June 16, 2019.
Pitcher to Target
Peacock is coming off a bad start against the Brewers but had been pitching great. In his previous six games, Peacock had an ERA of 1.32, a WHIP of 0.94 and a K rate of 29.9%. Peacock produced at least 15 fantasy points in five of those games. Today that is the kind of production I expect we see from Peacock as he is in an excellent match-up against the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays even with calling up their prospects are still not a good hitting team and this season they rank 24th in team ISO and 28th in team wOBA against right-handed pitching. The Blue Jays also strike out at a very high clip against righties with a team K rate of 25.0% which is the fifth highest in the majors.
Yesterday’s Results: Michael Wacha 1.60 fantasy points
Hitters to Target
Turner is on fire right now and is by far my top hitter on this slate. Turner has reached base safely multiple times in seven straight games and has reached base safely in 12 straight games overall. In those 12 games, Turner has seven doubles, two triples, three home runs, and two stolen bases. Turner is not only smoking hot right now but he is in an elite match-up against Archie Bradley who is a reverse splits pitcher. Since the start of last season, Turner is allowing righties to slash .288/.343/.481 with a .351 wOBA.

White has some bad numbers overall this season but has been a lot better as of late for the Astors. White has reached base safely in each of his past six starts and has three extra bases in those starts including a home run. Those recent numbers make White a very attractive play at his salary especially when you factor in that the Astors have one of the highest projected totals on this slate at 5.5 runs as of this writing.
Yesterday’s Results: Trevor Story 21.00 fantasy points
Dietrich is not hitting home runs every game like he was towards the end of May but is still an elite play today at his salary as he is facing a right-handed pitcher. This season, Dietrich has an OPS of 1.008, an ISO of .412 and a wOBA of .407 against right-handed pitching. The right-hander he is facing Ariel Jurado while he has been excellent this season against lefties struggled against them in his rookie season allowing them to slash .365/.430/.573 with a .428 wOBA and a 44.7% hard-hit rate.
Yesterday’s Results: Eugenio Suarez 9.00 fantasy points
