5 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays for 5/1/18
Carlos Gonzalez, OF, Colorado Rockies
We've got 16 mile-per-hour winds blowing out at Wrigley Field tonight and, in that hitter-friendly environment, the matchup between the Cubs and Rockies has a huge 11.0 over/under. Even as underdogs in a tough matchup against Cubs righty Kyle Hendricks, the Rockies boast a solid 4.93 implied total.
Carlos Gonzalez has seen his production fall off in recent seasons, but he still hits the ball well against righties. Since the beginning of 2017, he has turned a decent 30.9% hard-hit rate and 36.0% fly-ball rate into a .356 wOBA and .194 isolated slugging (ISO) against right-handed pitching.
Fly-balls will really carry with the strong winds tonight, and a batted-ball profile like that gives Gonzalez plenty of upside here.
