MLB DFS: Jason Heyward and best picks for August 26 FanDuel and DraftKings daily Fantasy baseball lineups
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with nearly $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
Before you enter an MLB DFS tournament for action on Sunday, Aug. 26, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has nearly $2 million in career winnings and has cashed huge on tournament rosters for NFL, NBA, NHL, golf and NASCAR in the past year. And 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 is rolling this season thanks to some spot-on MLB DFS picks.
To close out the week, McClure rostered Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon for $4,500 on FanDuel and $5,400 on DraftKings The result was Blackmon hitting a homer and a single for two RBIs -- returning over 28 FD points.
For Sunday's loaded MLB DFS slate, McClure loves Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward at $2,700 on FanDuel and $3,900 on DraftKings.
Heyward will benefit from a very favorable pitching matchup, facing Reds starter Homer Bailey, who in his last three starts -- all losses -- has allowed 13 earned runs and 29 hits in only 14.2 innings of work. Roster Heyward with confidence on Sunday.
McClure is teaming Heyward with Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who is $3,600 on DraftKings and $2,400 on FanDuel.
Kipnis will likely be batting behind slugger Melky Cabrera, who doubled twice on Saturday. Kipnis has the potential to be a big run producer on Sunday against Royals pitcher Jorge Lopez, who has lost both starts since being acquired from Milwaukee.
McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up explosive numbers on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, all for a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
