MLB DFS picks for Saturday, May 6th

Daily Fantasy Baseball picks for Saturday 5/617

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Pitcher to Target- Jordan Zimmerman ($7400)

Jesse Hahn ($9100) and Dylan Bundy ($8200) look to be decent picks in DFS leagues today, but if you are looking for a budget pick with some upside go for Jordan Zimmerman. Zimmerman is an experienced pitcher who has great command, but his poor 2016 for the Tigers has really hurt his overall fantasy value. He has not looked that much better this year either, but he is pitching against an Athletics team that has only hit a .634 OPS against him. Zimmerman is a risky pick who will not get a lot of strikeouts, but is poised to come out with the W against the Athletics

Pitcher to Stack Against- Odrisamer Despaigne vs Mets

The Mets have hit an impressive .517 SLG against Despaigne over his career. That high slugging percentage is only based on a small sample size of 29 at bats so fantasy owners should not look too much into that number. A big upside for the Mets Saturday is that Bruce is 2/4 with 2 HR against Despaigne over his career. The Mets have been struggling as of late, but will look to turn it around Saturday against a favorable pitching match-up.
