Nine games are on the MLB DFS main slate on Wednesday, Aug. 31, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET. Dodgers vs. Mets is undoubtedly the marquee matchup, but MLB DFS players will need to take a deep look at all nine games to find value up and down their rosters. Aaron Judge, Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Trea Turner are among the most expensive MLB DFS picks, while Jacob deGrom and Gerrit Cole are the highest priced pitchers in the Wednesday MLB DFS player pool.
Should your MLB DFS strategy involve rostering one of those big names, or should you look elsewhere for value? Before entering any MLB DFS tournaments like the $200K Wednesday MLB Deuces Wild on FanDuel or the $222K Relay Throw on DraftKings, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Wednesday, August 31, 2022
For Wednesday, one of McClure's top MLB DFS picks is Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins at $5,300 on DraftKings and $3,400 on FanDuel. Hoskins has recorded at least one hit in three of his last four games and he enters Wednesday's matchup with an .808 OPS, which ranks 35th in the league.
The 29-year-old has racked up 26 home runs and 65 RBI this season, and he gets an advantageous matchup against Arizona starting pitcher Tommy Henry on Wednesday. Henry has given up 15 hits, five runs and six walks in his last three starts against a National League team. Lock Hoskins in your MLB DFS lineups on Wednesday and look for a big return against the Diamondbacks.
McClure's MLB DFS strategy also includes rostering White Sox outfielder A.J. Pollock at $2,500 on FanDuel and $3,300 on DraftKings. Pollock comes at an extremely affordable price on Wednesday, which will allow you to load your MLB DFS roster with big-time playmakers.
Plus, Pollock has been extremely productive in his most recent outings, recording five hits, three RBI and a home run in his last five games. The veteran outfielder is hitting just .239 in the month of August but he has a great chance to produce big numbers on Wednesday against Royals starter Kris Bubic, who is 2-9 with a 5.62 ERA this season. Pollock is a complete steal at this price point, so confidently lock him in your MLB DFS lineups.
