FanDuel High Value Daily Fantasy Picks – April 28, 2014

| April 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

Madison Bumgarner | SP | San Francisco Giants

With only seven scheduled games for today, putting together a winning daily fantasy baseball roster may prove difficult to some due to the limited options.

However, crafty players can find a plethora of good available options if you know where to look.

To help you with your selections, we’ve compiled the top three high value daily fantasy baseball picks for tonight’s games.

Madison Bumgarner | SP | San Francisco Giants vs San Diego Padres | $9,000

There isn’t much to dislike about Bumgarner’s chances for another high scoring fantasy baseball day today.

San Francisco’s ace found his early season form last week, pitching eight innings in Denver while allowing only two earned runs and striking out six.

He looks to continue his pitching success at home today against the lowly San Diego Padres.

As if pitching at AT&T Park, a notoriously pitcher-friendly ballpark, is not enough, Bumgarner will be facing an offense that ranks dead last in the league in runs scored.

Although his price tag is second highest among pitchers today, this match-up is too good to overlook.

Do yourself a favor pick up Bumgarner despite having to pay a premium.

Alexei Ramirez | SS | Tampa Bay Rays at Chicago White Sox | $3,900

One of the biggest surprises of the season after five weeks has been the outstanding play of Alexei Ramirez, the 32-year-old shortstop for the Chicago White Sox.

After a disappointing 2013 campaign, Ramirez has returned to form in 2014, hitting .343 with four homeruns, 17 RBIS, 16 runs and four stolen bases in 25 games.

Ramirez faces Jake Odorizzi and the Tampa Bay Rays tonight in Chicago.

Odorizzi has struggled in his last three starts, allowing 14 earned runs and 27 base runners in 13.1 innings.

The matchup should provide an ideal opportunity for Ramirez who is hitting .365 with all four homeruns coming against right-handers this year.

With a cost of $1,100 less than Tulowitzki, Ramierz is a must add in all daily fantasy baseball formats.

Nolan Arenado | 3B | Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks | $3,300

The highly touted prospect that arrived in the league last season has quietly had a fantastic start to the season with the Rockies.

Arenado is currently riding a 17-game hitting streak and has reached base in all but five games this year.

He has been the model of consistency all year, hitting .290 with four homeruns, 14 RBIs and 12 runs this season.

As the seventh ranked third baseman for today’s games, Arenado has an undeniably high upside for his price.

He will face Wade Miley and the Diamondbacks in the rarified air of Denver tonight.

Miley currently posts a 4.50 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through six starts but has struggled to find consistency.

To make matters worse, he has allowed a homerun in all but one game this season, a fact that Arenado and the Rockies will surely keep in mind tonight at Coor’s Field.
