MLB DFS: Best DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, lineup advice for Saturday, August 13, 2022

We’re into the final third of the 2022 MLB season and MLB daily Fantasy players have had over four months now to hone their MLB DFS strategies. Aaron Judge has been an important part of those strategies throughout the year, as the Yankees slugger has put together a Herculean season with free agency looming. Judge has hit 46 home runs with 100 RBI while slashing .305/.400/.688 and he’ll be a popular option for MLB DFS lineups on Friday in a grudge match against the Red Sox.

However, Judge’s dominance this season has also made him the most expensive position player on the market ($6,400 on DraftKings and $5,100 on FanDuel) and affording him requires you to make sacrifices elsewhere. So who are some of the cheaper options with matchups that you can exploit in Saturday’s MLB DFS player pool? Before making any MLB DFS picks for Saturday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a daily Fantasy pro who has won over $2 million in his career. And when it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account.

On Friday, McClure highlighted Giants starter Carlos Rodon in his MLB DFS player pool on DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: Rodon pitched six innings in a win over the Pirates, giving up two earned runs and striking out seven to return 23.9 Fantasy points on DraftKings and 43 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, as the 2022 MLB season continues, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks for Saturday, August 13. Head to SportsLine now to see them.

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday, August 13, 2022

For Saturday, one of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks is Dodgers infielder Max Muncy who is listed at $5,900 on DraftKings and $4,000 on FanDuel. After belting at least 35 home runs and posting an OPS of .889 or higher in each of his last three full seasons, Muncy has struggled in 2022. He’s hitting .179 but has walked 62 times to post a .319 OBP and has 13 home runs in 302 at-bats.

Muncy’s .205 BABIP is 50 points below his career average, so it’s safe to expect some positive regression in that regard and he’s had an encouraging start to August. Muncy has a 1.312 OPS in eight games this month with four home runs and eight RBI. You’ll definitely want to ride the hot streak on Saturday as he takes on the Royals and righty Brad Keller (4.45 ERA on the season).

Another part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy includes stacking Muncy with first baseman Freddie Freeman ($5,400 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel). The five-time all-star with the Braves signed a six-year, $162 million contract to join the Dodgers after leading Atlanta to a World Series win last season and he’s fit in perfectly to one of baseball’s best lineups.

Freeman is slashing .324/.400/.523 with 15 home runs, 72 RBI and nine stolen bases. He currently leads the National League with 140 hits and 37 doubles and he has a .962 OPS against right-handed pitching this season.
