MLB: WEDNESDAY DFS RESOURCEFUL PLAYS

By Ramon Scott, @rsstreams

STARTING PITCHERS

Miami Marlins LogoTom Koehler – The Braves had a big night against Latos on Tuesday, but Koehler comes in here as the small favorite with a game total at just over 7. That should be enough for a quality start from the Miami right-hander, who easily is our top value play of the starters on Wednesday. He is our sixth-ranked pitcher on the list today, but is the fifth-lowest salaried pitcher on the board. We look for the Marlins to get their first win of the season and avoid the sweep against their division rivals.

POSITION PLAYERS

Chicago Cubs LogoStarlin Castro – The Cubs’ SS had a hit in the opener on Sunday and is 10-for-30 career-wise off of Cards’ starter Lance Lynn.

Kansas City Royals LogoLorenzo Cain – The Royals’ OF put up 5.25 FPs in the opener against the White Sox. He is 10-for-32 with four doubles career BvP against the White Sox’s Jose Quintana.

Philadelphia Phillies LogoBen Revere – The Phils’ left-hand hitting OF went 0-for-4 in the season opener, but he is a terrific 7-for-19 lifetime against Red Sox RP Rick Porcello.

St. Louis Cardinals LogoMatt Adams – The Cards’ Adams is 5-for-11 with a double and three RBI against the Cubs SP Arrieta. Adams wore the collar on opening night with an 0-for-4 on Sunday.

Baltimore Orioles LogoAdam Jones – The O’s Jones is 8-for-14 career BvP against the Rays’ Jake Odorizzi. His salary is already down $100 to 4.2k on Fanduel after a 1-for-7 start, but he had a double and an RBI last night in the road win at TB.

Texas Rangers LogoShin-Soo Choo – The Rangers OF is 6-for-16 with five walks against the A’s LHP Kazmir. Choo is down to just 2.9k on FanDuel, but he double last night in the win at Oakland

Colorado Rockies LogoJustin Morneau – Justin is 6-for-11 with two doubles off of Milwaukee’s Peralta. His salary has decreased $200 after a 1-for-9 start, however, he did hit a triple on Tuesday and over eight runs total are expected again in this one. Morneau picked up a slight injury knick Tuesday night so make sure he’s in the lineup before rostering him.
