5 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays for 8/20/18
Eric Thames, OF, Milwaukee Brewers
Eric Thames is at home in Miller Park tonight against a right-handed pitcher? Yes, please.
This season, Thames has blasted righties in Milwaukee for a .356 isolated power (ISO), .395 weighted on-base average (wOBA), and 56.7% hard-hit rate over 113 plate appearances.
Miller Park is also a fantastic spot for left-handed batters, ranking 13th (out of 60) in home run factor by handedness in 2018.
Thames also gets a date with Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey, who's allowed a .540 slugging percentage and 2.09 home runs per nine innings (HR/9) to opposite-handed bats in 2018. Taking all those factors into account, we could very well see Thames go yard tonight.
