Easter Sunday DFS Plays

Today should be a DFS players’ dream as 15 games are lined up with some great pitching matchups that should provide plenty of runs and fantasy points. For today, I will give you two hitters and one pitcher that should outperform their price and win you some money.

Christian Walker: 1B, Arizona Diamondbacks

The 28-year-old first baseman has surprised the Diamondbacks thus far, producing a .313/.380/.682 slashline to date along with 6 homers and 3 steals. Walker has a juicy matchup today, as he faces the struggling Tyler Chatwood who currently holds a lowly 6.80 ERA on the year.

Chatwood, for whatever reason, has struggled against righties, surrendering a 4.50 FIP and 1.37 WHIP against them for his career. Walker has obliterated righties this year, batting .366 with an .805 SLG and a silly-good .439 ISO against. Also, he gets to benefit from Wrigley Field, a stadium that ranked as the 8th best hitters park last season. Overall, Walker is a must play against the stumbling Cubs this afternoon.

Daniel Vogelbach: 1B/DH, Seattle Mariners

Vogelbach has simply crushed this season, batting a robust .354/.492/.875 for the suddenly offensively relevant Mariners. Throughout his career, in both the minors and majors, Vogelbach has demolished righties and has proved it this year, batting .372 with a .544 wOBA and .514 ISO. Simply put, those numbers are ridiculous.

Vogelbach gets to face the sporadic Jaime Barria in what should be a high-scoring matchup. Barria struggled against lefties last year, posting a disappointing 4.43 xFIP against them. Overall, Vogelbach has the skills to carry your lineup this weekend and win you some cash.

Ervin Santana: SP, Chicago White Sox

The veteran pitcher has struggled so far this season with a 10.38 ERA through two starts. He should, however, get back on track against the weak Tigers lineup that features almost all right-handed hitters. Santana has dominated righties for his career, surrendering only a .236 AVG and .700 OPS against them in over 1,000 innings. He also gets to pitch at Comerica Park, a stadium that ranked outside the top 20 in runs scored last season. Overall, Santana is a solid veteran who should get back on track against a terrible Tigers squad. He should well outperform his price this afternoon.
