David Peralta is a Strong DFS Play and Bellinger is One to Fade

David Peralta

There are 4 other options at $4400 (Ian Desmond, Avisail Garcia, Wil Myers, Clint Frazier) and Peralta is the best option of these 5. Shin-Soo Choo (7 FP), Hunter Pence (6.5 FP), Aaron Hicks (8.8 FP), Jarrod Dyson (8.7 FP), and Mike Trout (8.2 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Peralta but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 7.6 FPs, a value reached in 83 of 201 games (41%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 40%.

There are 4 other options at $3800 (Starling Marte, Max Kepler, David Dahl, Hunter Renfroe) and Peralta is the best option of these 5. Nelson Cruz (14.8 FP) is projected for more points at a lower salary. Hunter Pence (8.5 FP), Mike Trout (10.9 FP), J.D. Martinez (11.1 FP), Charlie Blackmon (13.5 FP), and Marcell Ozuna (10.7 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Peralta but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 10.8 FPs, a value reached in 77 of 201 games (38%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 43%.

Christin Stewart and Nick Castellanos are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings on 6/13.

Cody Bellinger

Bellinger is not the best option on FanDuel with a projected 10.7 FD pts (#22 among outfielders). At $4600 he is expected to be the #2 outfielder. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $3.8K (expected pts per $ is calculated daily based on the average of healthy starters). These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Adam Jones (11.3 FP), Nelson Cruz (14.8 FP), Aaron Hicks (12 FP), Jarrod Dyson (11.3 FP), and Starling Marte (12.8 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 13 FPs, a value reached in 72 of 243 games (30%). The combined 'cover percentage' for outfielders expected to start is 43%.

Projected for 7.9 DraftKings pts Cody Bellinger is the #10 ranked first basemen. At $5300 he is expected to be the #1 first basemen. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $4.6K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Justin Smoak (8.5 FP), Eric Hosmer (8.8 FP), Jose Abreu (8.6 FP), Max Muncy (8 FP), and Rowdy Tellez (8.2 FP).
