If you don’t want to spend a ton of your payroll on starting pitching tonight, there are plenty of value options to choose from. Mets starter Zack Wheeler ($8,300) leads the pack against the Diamondbacks, who have been well below-average against right-handers with their .312 wOBA. Wheeler has a 3.68 FIP and a 3.86 Deserved Run Average, suggesting that he’s pitched much better than his 4.33 ERA. He’s allowed just two earned runs over his last two starts and is in a good spot at home.

Jakob Junis, SP: $8,100– Junis is another starter to check out in this matchup against the White Sox, who are one of the weakest lineups against righties. They have just a .296 wOBA with a 26.1% K-rate versus right-handed pitching.
Mitch Garver, C: $3,200– It’s pretty rare that a catcher is ever worth using on FanDuel, but Garver has been hitting well enough to justify it. He’s absurdly hot right now, batting .391 with a 1.722 OPS and six homers in the last two weeks.
Justin Turner, 3B: $3,600– The Dodgers lineup against the Orioles pitching staff is the most lopsided matchup we will see all year. Turner has a .967 OPS in the last 15 days and will easily accumulate counting stats batting third in a hitter-friendly environment in Baltimore.
Didi Gregorius, SS: $3,400 – Those of you playing the early slate want to target Tigers starter Edwin Jackson, who has a 9.16 ERA with a 2.84 HR/9. Didi has 14 homers in just 68 games, so he can easily go deep here.
Shohei Ohtani, OF: $2,900– Ohtani is just way too cheap at this price, as he’s got an .866 OPS against right-handers.
Andrew Benintendi, OF: $3,000– The Red Sox are a nice stack option in Toronto against T.J. Zeuch, who is making his first proper start in the majors. Benintendi has been cold lately but is still in a good spot for some cheap RBI batting fifth.
