The MLB Daily Three Pack

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, April 24, 2018.

Pitcher to Target

Tanner Roark-$16,100-WAS

I am a huge Nationals fan and hate Roark. Roark, in my opinion, is overrated for what people make him out to be at least in the DC media. With that being said Roark is not a bad pitcher at all and minus a bad start against the Mets has been very effective this season. In his three other starts. Roark has allowed a total of four earned runs and has struck out 15 batters in 20 innings of work. In those starts, he has a WHIP of just 0.7 and is averaging 20.67 fantasy points. Tonight I am expecting a similar performance from Roark as he is in an elite match-up against the Giants. The Giants don’t strikeout a lot against right-handed pitching but they don’t hit them well at all as since the start of last season they rank dead last in team wOBA, team ISO, team OPS and team wRC+ against them. Roark also get’s a boost with this game being at AT&T Park. With all the questions marks with the higher end pitchers on this slate, I love Roark at his very affordable salary.

Infielder to Target

Nolan Arenado-$10,700-COL

Eric Lauer has great numbers in Triple-A this season and the Padres have decided now was the time to call the 22-year old lefty up to the majors. They couldn’t have picked a worst situation to have Lauer make his debut as the fly-ball pitcher has to face the Rockies in Coors Field. The Rockies are by far my favorite team to stack tonight with Arenado being by far my favorite hitter on this slate. Arenado owns left-handed pitching, especially at home. Since the start of last season, Arenado is slashing .443/.479/.875 with an ISO of .432 and a wOBA of .556 in those situations. Arenado is also smoking hot with three home runs in his past four games including in back-to-back games. Arenado may only get two at-bats against Lauer but I am going to call my shot and say he takes Lauer deep tonight.

Outfielder to Target

Noel Cuevas-$4,800-COL

Cuevas has taken a total of four at-bats in the majors. In those at-bats, he has zero hits and two strikeouts. Why that is not a good start to a major league career, I am all over Cuevas for several reasons tonight. The first is his salary as Cuevas is dirt cheap. The second is because he is at home at Coors Field facing a left-handed pitcher who I mentioned earlier is making his major league debut. The last reason why I am all over Cuevas is that he is talented. Last season in his first full season at Triple-A Cuevas slashed .312/.353/.487 with an ISO of .174 and a wOBA of .362. Cuevas had 15 home runs, 79 runs scored and 79 RBIs. Cuevas also has some speed and has the ability to steal bases.
