MLB DFS for July 11: Best DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball picks
Before you enter a DFS tournament for MLB action on Wednesday, July 11, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has nearly $2 million in career winnings and has cashed huge on tournament rosters for NFL, NBA, NHL, golf and NASCAR in the past year.
And when it comes to MLB, 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 is off to a hot start this season thanks to some spot-on picks.
Over the weekend, McClure rostered Nationals first baseman Mark Reynolds for just $2,700 on FanDuel and $3,700 on DraftKings The result: Reynolds had a career night on Saturday, smashing two home runs, scoring three times, and collecting a whopping 10 RBIs — returning an insane 80.6 points and 29x value on FanDuel. Anyone who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a profitable night.
For Wednesday’s main MLB DFS slate, McClure loves Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez at $3,600 on FanDuel and $4,300 on DraftKings.
Gonzalez has recorded at least one hit in six of his last seven games and an RBI in three of his last four. And he’s strong against right-handed pitching, posting a .288 average on the season. That puts him in a prime position to put up big numbers against Diamondbacks starter and righty Shelby Miller.
McClure is stacking Gonzalez with Charlie Blackmon, who is $4,400 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings.
He’s loading up on the Rockies because of the matchup with Miller, who has an ERA of 9.00 since returning from Tommy John surgery. The matchup, combined with the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field, could lead to big numbers for Blackmon and Gonzalez.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up explosive numbers on Wednesday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, and he comes at a bargain. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
