Daily Fanduel Picks: June 29, 2014

Yes, you can draft a new team every single day.


While we have focused our fantasy baseball coverage to this point on full season leagues, we will also be featuring our top daily Fanduel picks every single day moving forward.


Safe SP

Felix Hernandez ($11,200): Felix is throwing at home today vs the Cleveland Indians, who have a number of opponents that can't seem to do anything against him. Nick Swisher, Carlos Santana, Asdrubal Cabrera all have career averages under .220 vs Felix. David Murphy, Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley have hit Felix well in limited action, but I expect Felix to roll today at home.

Potential Value SP 

Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,000): Just like with Beeler yesterday, Despaigne is a great value play if you want to take a flier on a pitcher and roll with an elite offense today. He's over $8,000 less than Felix and could very well put up 6-7 innings with a few Ks by taking advantage of the fact Arizona has never seen him before. He's also pitching at home in Petco, so we should be looking at a low-scoring game anyways. 


Safe Bats

Chase Utley ($3,900): Chase absolutely mashes against opposing pitcher Aaron Harang. He is 12/26 off Harang for his career with 1 HR, 6 RBI, 1 SB and 3 BBs vs only 1 K. 

Desmond Jennings ($2,900): There are certain teams that Jennings crushes, and specific pitchers even more so. This is an example of such today, with Jennings and Miguel Gonzalez. In 22 AB, Jennings has hit 4 HR off Gonzalez and is a nice play at this price tag.

Miguel Cabrera ($5,000): Miggy has eye-popping numbers against opposing pitcher Scott Feldman.  He is 9 for 13 with 2 HR, 5 RBI. 4 of his 9 hits have gone for extra bases. This is a tasty matchup for one of the best hitters in baseball, and he should be in every Fanduel lineup today.

Value Bats

David Murphy ($2,200): I mentioned above there are a couple hitters in the Cleveland lineup that hit well off of Felix – and Murphy tops that list. He is an eye-popping 24/75 with 3 HR and 16 RBI off him for his career. Murphy makes for a nice value play if you disagree with running Felix for your team today. 

Rickie Weeks ($3,000): The Brew Crew will likely put Weeks into the lineup today with Jorge De La Rosa toeing the rubber for Colorado. Weeks has hit very well off De La Rosa for his career, with a 5/8 lifetime record against the lefty. If he's in the lineup and you need a value 2B – give him a look.

Players With Poor Track Records Against Their Opposing Pitcher – Stay Away!

Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Phillips, Asdrubal Cabrera, Matt Carpenter
