At first glance, Arizona outfielder Daulton Varsho appears a skippable option for MLB DFS lineups, as he is still batting below the Mendoza line for the season. However, he is also tied with San Diego's Jurickson Profar for the sixth-highest rate of home runs hit per number of at bats this season with 10.5. Both figure to be back in action on Sunday, but are either worth considering in the MLB DFS player pool on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel.
The Mets take on right-handed pitcher Tylor Megill (2-0), while the Padres continue their series against the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw. Jurickson has one hit in four total at bats against Kershaw, while Varsho has hit three home runs over his last five games.

McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Sunday, April 24, 2022
One of McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Sunday is Cubs outfielder Seiya Suzuki, who is listed at $6,000 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel. Suzuki is currently the major league leader in offensive wins above replacement (1.3), on-base percentage (.517), and has been phenomenally efficient at the plate. Besides his OBP, he is hitting .372 with a slugging percentage of .721, and has scored the most runs in the National League (12).
The Cubs wrap up their series against Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon, and in the first two games, Suzuki has been sensational. He's 4-for-8 over Friday and Saturday and is coming off of a three-hit performance with a double and an RBI in his last start. The Pirates will send JT Brubaker to the mound, who has struggled in away games early this season, going 0-2 and posting a 6.75 ERA on the road.
Another part of McClure's optimal MLB DFS strategy includes Cardinals second baseman Tommy Edman ($4,000 on DraftKings and $3,400 on FanDuel). Edman has recorded a hit in all but one game this season and is coming off of a two-run performance against Cincinnati on Saturday. Over his last five starts, Edman has offensive splits of .353/.476/.471 with a triple and three RBI on six total hits.
Edman and the Cardinals face off against Reds pitcher Nick Lodolo on Sunday afternoon, who has had a turbulent start to his major league career. Through two starts, he has pitched nine innings and given up three home runs and eight earned runs. Against left-handed pitchers such as Lodolo, Edman is 5-for-12 on the season with a .917 slugging percentage, a home run, a triple and a double.
