FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball picks for Friday, April 10

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Reminder: Always double check the lineup card before rosters lock to make sure that a player you've chosen to roster is playing that day.

P- Brandon Morrow vs. San Francisco Giants, $5,900

Morrow's pure stuff has not dropped off at all from his peak years. His fastball and slider are still as electric as ever, and he'll be facing a weak SF Giants offense in PetCo Park who will likely be without Brandon Belt, who is down with a groin injury. Morrow is one of the most inexpensive P on FanDuel tomorrow, and his nasty stuff combined with his dirt cheap price makes him a good play.

3B- David Wright vs. Eric Stults, $3,300

David Wright has looked much better this year at the plate after healing his shoulder injury. He mashes lefties, and he's facing a soft tossing lefty with poor run prevention who does not miss bats. Stults is projected to have a 4.34 ERA with a 4.29 FIP this year. I expect multiple hard hit balls from Wright in this matchup.

C- Yasmani Grandal vs. Chase Anderson, $2,900

I love targeting hitters in Chase Field, especially in April, and Grandal is a talented hitting catcher who has been batting fifth in a good Dodgers lineup. He faces RHP Chase Anderson, projected to be a below average pitcher in 2015, and Grandal has a 124 wRC+ against righties in his career.

OF- Mookie Betts vs. Nathan Eovaldi, $3,400

Take advantage of Betts' low price as often as you can, because it's going to go up soon. Betts is one of the most talented young players in the game and he hits leadoff for a potent Red Sox lineup. Betts' fast hands will allow him to turn on Eovaldi's hard fastball, and Yankee stadium is easy to score runs in.

OF- John Mayberry Jr. vs. Eric Stults, $2,400

Manager Terry Collins said Mayberry will play this weekend against one of the two lefties the Mets face. It's not clear whether today will be that day, so check the lineup card before rosters lock, but if he's in the lineup, he becomes one of the best value plays on FanDuel. He clobbers lefties, and the Mets signed him specifically to boost their offense against LHP.

First Coors Field game of the year

It's the first Coors Field game of the year, so fit as many hitters as you can into your lineup from this game. The ball doesn't move in Coors Field like it does near sea level, so it's a lot easier to square up and hit hard. The high altitude also makes the ball travel further when struck.

My first target from that game is Nolan Arenado, who crushed lefties last year. He'll be facing LHP Travis Wood, who has a career ERA over 4.
