3 Under-the-Radar MLB FanDuel Plays for 5/29/18
Mac Williamson, OF, San Francisco Giants
FanDuel Price: $3,800
The San Francisco Giants get about as big a park factor boost as you can get in going from AT&T Park to Coors Field, and with the top of the lineup priced fairly reasonably, they should see decent ownership tonight. The Giants have an enticing 5.08 implied team total against Kyle Freeland.
But one way you can be a little contrarian is looking further down the order at Mac Williamson. Williamson tinkered with his swing in the offseason, and after posting a ridiculous .536 isolated power (ISO) over 70 plate appearances in Triple-A, he earned a promotion to the big league club near the end of April.
A stint on the disabled list has limited him to just 36 major league plate appearances since then, but the early returns are promising with three dingers and a .265 ISO. A 54.2% ground-ball rate adds a little concern that the power won't completely stick, but if there's a spot to bet on this new swing, it's at Coors Field. Williamson is one of the most expensive Giants hitters tonight, but it should only help keep ownership down in tournaments.
