With a deep list of high-priced talent both as pitchers and hitters, you don’t necessarily have to grab the top daily fantasy baseball players on August 11. As long as you grab some of the best options at each position and complement them with a few bargain picks, you could be in position to make some big money.

Here is a look at predictions for the top scorers for Tuesday’s contests as well as a breakdown of some bargain options.


Value Picks

Luis Severino, SP, New York Yankees ($5,500)

Although he has only made one career start that lasted five innings, Luis Severino showcased a lot of potential in his lone appearance. The 21-year-old pitcher allowed just two hits and walked zero while striking out seven batters in his limited showcase.

Jack Curry of YES had great things to say about the young starter:

The Cleveland Indians have been red hot as of late, but Severino has loads of talent and could end up being a bargain at this price.


Brian Dozier, 2B, Minnesota Twins ($4,300)

A slump has dropped the price on Brian Dozier to the point he is now a bargain at second base. The good news is he can still hit a home run at any point, with his shot on Friday bringing him up to 24 on the season.

Meanwhile, Dozier is 5-for-7 in his career against Yovani Gallardo with a home run and four RBI, according to ESPN. Even with a small sample size, this is a good sign for Tuesday’s matchup.


David Peralta, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks ($4,200)

The Philadelphia Phillies have played much better as of late, but the same cannot be said about pitcher David Buchanan. Tuesday’s starter allowed seven runs in his latest outing to lift his ERA to 7.23 on the year in nine starts.

There are a number of quality options in the Arizona Diamondbacks lineup, but David Peralta has hit the ball as well as anyone over the past week and could be in store for a big game.


Khris Davis, OF, Milwaukee Brewers ($3,600)

Consistency remains an issue for Khris Davis, but the outfielder does have the ability to put together a huge fantasy game. In the past week, he already has one game of 39 points and one of 32 points, according to DraftKings.

While Davis hasn’t been able to take advantage of his power all year, he is clearly seeing the ball well and faces a pitcher in Dan Haren who has allowed eight home runs in his last four starts. This is a chance for his recent success to continue.


Francisco Cervelli, C, Pittsburgh Pirates ($3,300)

In his first real chance to be a full-time catcher in the majors, Francisco Cervelli is quietly having a very impressive season. After going 8-for-16 in five games during the recent home stand, the Pirates backstop is now hitting .307 on the year.

The St. Louis Cardinals have been tough to hit this season no matter who you are, but look for Cervelli to make some big plays in this important series.
