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 Wednesday, June 19, 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
Richards struggled in his last start against the Pirates but had been in great form in his four prior starts. In those starts, Richards allowed three total runs while striking out at least five in each start. Richards produced at least 19 fantasy points in each of those games. Tonight as long as the weather holds out which it should we see should Richards go back to that level of production as he takes on an ice cold Cardinals team. Over the past 30 days, the Cardinals rank 28th in runs scored, 25th in team ISO and 29th in team wOBA.
Yesterday’s Results: Jack Flaherty 22.75 fantasy points
Infielder to Target
Ramirez is starting to heat up after a very slow start to the season. Ramirez has hits in five straight games for the Indians with three extra-base hits including a home run in those games. Ramirez is not just starting to heat up but I love the match-up for him as he takes on Joe Palumbo at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Globe Life Park is one of the best hitter’s parks in baseball and Palumbo has only made one career start above Double-A in his career. In that start, he allowed four runs in just four innings of work. The Rangers bullpen is also one of the worst in the majors.
Yesterday’s Results: Anthony Rizzo 2.00 fantasy points
Outfielder to Target
Ronald Acuna Jr.-$10,300-ATL
Acuna Jr. has been on fire recently for the Braves with hits in 16 of his previous 18 games. In those games, Acuna Jr. has multiple hits in ten of the games and has six home runs. Acuna Jr. is slashing .366/.422/.634 with an ISO of .268 and a wOBA of .441 in those games. Tonight I don’t see Acuna Jr. slowing down as he takes on a left-handed pitcher. In his short career, Acuna Jr. has an OPS of 1.016, an ISO of .229 and a wOBA of .422 against lefties.
Yesterday’s Results: Khris Davis 25.00 fantasy points
