MLB DFS players will be studying matchups such as Mets vs. Phillies, Indians vs. Rays and Cubs vs. Brewers looking for value picks for daily Fantasy tournaments on sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings, both of which have plenty of MLB DFS contests available for both the afternoon and evening slates on Saturday.

He’s a daily Fantasy pro who has won almost $2 million in his career and his optimal MLB DFS lineups, advice and player pool can help you crush your selections Saturday.
When it comes to MLB, 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.
He got off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x in the first half of the season. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. He cashed huge in three consecutive tournaments in mid-June, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup generated a whopping 185.9 points. He also had an optimal lineup on FanDuel that cashed 8x for followers right before the All-Star break.
Then on Friday, he was all over Rockies shortstop Trevor Story on FanDuel. The result: Story went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored — returning around 6x value and 28 points. Anyone who has followed McClure has seen some huge returns. Now, McClure has set his sights on Saturday’s slates.
One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Saturday is Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado at $4,600 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings.
