MLB DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for Friday’s slate have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Mike Trout, Bryce Harper or Charlie Blackmon is a great way to guarantee production, but all three come with a hefty price tag on both sites. They’ll eat up a large portion of your MLB DFS salary cap right off the bat, so making the right call on the value of players such as them will be critical when evaluating Friday’s MLB DFS slate. 

Trout, Harper and Blackmon will certainly be popular MLB DFS picks on Friday, but which players are set to return value at a lower price point? Before making your MLB DFS picks for Friday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, stacks and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure. He’s a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings and his top picks and MLB DFS player pool can help you build the perfect roster.

When it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, 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’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

His model led him to some massive returns from his MLB DFS picks in 2019, producing daily Fantasy baseball lineups on SportsLine that returned as much as 30x. He also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice last season. 

On Wednesday, McClure was on Cubs outfielder Ian Happ in his lineup. The result: Happ went 3-for-4 with a run scored against the Tigers. Anybody who built their lineup around him was well on the way to a profitable day. 

Now, with the 60-game 2020 MLB schedule continuing on Friday, Aug. 28, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks. Head to SportsLine now to see them. 

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Aug. 28

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Friday is San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. at $6,200 on DraftKings and $4,900 on FanDuel. Tatis went 1-for-3 with a solo homer, walk and two runs scored as the Padres defeated the Mariners in Game 1 of Thursday’s doubleheader.  The 21-year-old enters Friday’s contest with 13 home runs this season, which leads the majors. With another favorable matchup against the Rockies on Friday, Tatis is a strong choice for your MLB DFS rosters. 

Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy involves rostering Padres third baseman Manny Machado at $5,800 on DraftKings and $4,200 on FanDuel. Machado has been on an absolute tear at the plate for San Diego recently. In fact, Machado is 18-for-32 with five homers, a triple and four doubles while riding an eight-game hit streak. 

Machado has also recorded two or more hits in seven of his last nine outings, and he has a great chance to produce big numbers again on Friday against Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland, who has given up 26 hits in his last four starts. Machado is a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your MLB DFS lineups and look for a big return on Friday.
