Welcome to the Daily Three Pack where we share three core players on FantasyDraft that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.
In this article, I am going to give you three core plays that I am using in cash games for the main slate of games. This core will include a player at each of the three positions on FantasyDraft pitcher, infielder, and outfielder.
Pitcher to Target
Picking on the Marlins with pitchers has been a winning move for most of the season especially right-handed hitters. This season the Marlins rank 29th in team wOBA, dead last in team ISO and are tied for the fifth worst team K rate at 24.8% against righties. Those struggles make Flaherty a great target, especially with his talent. Flaherty can allow some runs but also brings a lot of K upside as he has a K/9 rate of 9.90 this season and has struck out at least seven strikeouts in three of his past four games.

Infielder to Target
Rizzo is one of my top overall players on this slate as he is on fire. In his past seven games, Rizzo has nine hits with three home runs. Rizzo is slashing .346/.393/.731 during this stretch. Rizzo is not just crushing the ball right now but he is also in an elite match-up against Ivan Nova. Nova really struggles against left-handed hitting. Since the start of the 2014 season, Nova is allowing left-handed hitters to slash .310/.351/.516 with a .367 wOBA. Rizzo has also had a lot of success against Nova with seven hits in his 15 career at-bats against him.
Yesterday’s Results: Matt Beaty 4.00 fantasy points
Outfielder to Target
Davis is always a boom or bust play as he doesn’t hit the ball for average as his .247 average in each of the past four seasons show but tonight I have a feeling he goes boom for a couple of reasons. The first is Davis has been getting on base at a nice clip as of late. Davis has reached base safely in six of his past eight games. Davis has shown his elite power in those games with three home runs in those games. The second reason I think Davis goes boom is due to his elite match-up against Gabriel Ynoa. Ynoa like most Orioles pitchers is really bad and this season Ynoa is allowing right-handed hitters to slash .355/.402/.592 with a .417 wOBA.
Yesterday’s Results: Mike Trout 29.00 fantasy points
