Austin Barnes and Kyle Lewis are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings on 9/10.

Joc Pederson

He is projected for 5.9 FanDuel points and 4.4 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1874 short of $3.8K on FanDuel and -$2923 short of $5.5K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade.
