MLB: FRIDAY DFS RESOURCEFUL PLAYS

By Ramon Scott, @rsstreams

STARTING PITCHERS

San Diego Padres LogoBrandon Morrow – New Padres’ starter Morrow is our overwhelming value choice tonight against the visiting Giants. This game is tabbed as the lowest expected total of the night and San Diego is a -135 favorite overnight. Also, Morrow gets strikeouts, so this allows for a rare deep value play on the mound at just 5.9k at FanDuel. We also could consider Derek Holland or Drew Pomeranz, as we do not prefer higher-priced options tonight.

POSITION PLAYERS

Cincinnati Reds LogoMarlon Byrd – With a 10-for-27 lifetime mark against St. Louis’ John Lackey, we may comeback with the Reds’ Byrd again tonight at home.

Minnesota Twins LogoDanny Santana – The Twins’ SS stands out as the top value play at the position and fourth-best option overall. He is 5-for-14 with three extra-base hits against the White Sox’s Hector Noesi, but he has started this season with an 0-for-12.

Colorado Rockies LogoNick Hundley – Catcher Hundley has started off with a bang this season for the Rockies, going 5-for-13. He is in the expected 10-run tilt against the Cubs Friday afternoon.

Toronto Blue Jays LogoDevin Travis – Toronto 2B Travis is 3-for-9 with a HR and and an RBI in each of the Blue Jays’ first three games this season.
