Here is your top daily fantasy sports plays for Tuesday, April 28. Values based on www.draftkings.com
Tyson Ross-SP-SD vs. HOU- $9200--The Astros strikeout a ton and Ross is a strikeout pitcher. He has struck out 5 of the 15 Astros' batters that he has faced. He is also coming off of a good start.
Johnny Cueto-SP-CIN vs. MIL- $10,400- Cueto has a 22.9% K-rate against the Brewers. His FIP is still sub-3 when fielder's play and home runs are normalized. Need an ace and I'm not willing to pay $2000 more for Kershaw, whose numbers aren't that great vs. SF.
Michael Wacha-SP-STL vs. PHI- $8300- Wacha doesn't have a history against the Phillies, but his stuff has been electric over 3 starts. He is facing one of the worst offenses in the league. His K-rate is down, but the Phillies could cure that.
Brian McCann-C-NYY vs. TB- $3800- McCann is 8 for 13 lifetime vs. Odorizzi with 2HR.
Mike Zunino-C-SEA vs. TEX- $3900- Zunino has a weighted OBP of .339. Facing a lefty in Detwiler.
Paul Goldschmidt-1B-ARI vs. PHI- $5600- Goldschmidt has a .360 wOBP at home vs. the Phillies.
Joey Votto-1B-CIN vs. MIL-$4700- Votto has cooled off as of late, but he is still hitting inside of Great American Bandbox vs. a guy who has been getting torched lately in Lohse. Votto is batting .306 vs. Lohse in his career.
Neil Walker-2B-PIT vs. CHI- $4200- Walker is hitting in the heart of the Pirate's order and the RBI opportunities will be there vs. Wood. He is 7 for 20 lifetime vs. him with 1 HR.
Aaron Hill-2B-ARI vs. COL- $3800- Hill's numbers are eye-popping vs. Kendrick. He has 4 doubles vs. him and is a relatively cheap option.
Aramis Ramirez-3B-MIL vs. CIN- $3400- Ramirez has a tall order in facing Cueto. But, he is 17 for 48 lifetime with 5 HRs vs. him. The power is drying up, but ANY power plays in Cincinnati's ballpark.
Kris Bryant-3B-CHC vs. PIT- $4600- Bryant is hitting in the heart of a great order. No home runs yet, but Locke can be a catalyst for a big night.
Jhonny Peralta-SS-STL vs. PHI- $4200- Peralta is facing rookie who has been prone to the long ball in the minors.
Dee Gordon-SS-MIA vs. NYM- $4400- We like the speed play with Gordon against a rookie in Montero. Trying to save a little bit of money with all of the high priced starting pitching today.
Bryce Harper-OF-WAS vs. ATL- $4200- Teheran has been struggling and Harper has been the only thing going for the Nationals. He is 7 for 16 lifetime with a 2 HR off of Teheran.
Corey Dickerson-OF-COL vs. ARI- $5000- The Rockies are still playing in thin air in Arizona. Dickerson is on fire, hitting .348 over his last 23 games, including 3 HRs. Check the lineups, he has been battling foot problems.
Starling Marte-OF-PIT vs. CHC- $5200- Marte is 7 for 23 versus Wood with 2 homers in his career. We like the matchup, a lot. He can also chip in steals with his legs.
Joc Pederson-OF-LAD vs. SF- $3500- It's tough to recommend the youngster here, but he is cheap and on fire. He is going against Bumgarner, who hasn't been that great this year. The lefty-lefty matchup is tough, but if you are looking for a value play, here it is.
