There were over 1,100 home runs hit in May, setting a new MLB record. That means power is coming from everywhere, and MLB DFS players need to adjust as they look to build winning lineups on daily Fantasy sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings. There are 15 games on the MLB schedule for Saturday, June 1, and some of the league’s top hitters will be challenged by pitchers such as Jacob deGrom and Clayton Kershaw. So before locking in any MLB DFS lineups throughout the day, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a professional DFS player, and his top MLB DFS picks, advice, optimal lineups and player pool can help you navigate Saturday’s huge schedule.
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 rolled through last season, producing multiple lineups that cashed in huge.
He’s off to a hot start in 2019 as well, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments multiple times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. Anybody following him has seen plenty of huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Saturday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Saturday’s slate, we can tell you one of the top MLB DFS picks that McClure is eyeing is Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor ($2,500 on FanDuel, $3,500 on DraftKings). After a slow start to the season, Taylor has seen his batting average rise recently after recording nine hits over his last eight games. He’s also scored five runs during that span. And McClure likes Taylor’s matchup on Saturday against Phillies lefty Cole Irvin, who has a 5.60 ERA on the season, so confidently lock him in at a very affordable price.
Part of McClure’s MLB DFS strategy for Saturday includes rostering Rockies outfielder David Dahl ($4,000 on FanDuel, $4,900 on DraftKings), who has seven hits in his last three games and is fifth in the National League in batting average (.318). Despite those strong numbers, he still comes a good bit cheaper than other options in Colorado’s lineup like Nolan Arenado or Trevor Story, so there’s value in using Dahl against the Blue Jays at Coors Field.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to return huge value and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
