5 Daily Fantasy Baseball Studs to Target on 6/17/16
Matt Harvey, SP, New York Mets
FanDuel Price: $8,700
After a miserable three-game stretch where he allowed 17 runs, Matt Harvey has seemingly turned it around in his last three starts. He’s still suffering from a three-year high walks per nine innings of 2.45, but he’s greatly improved his control and has been dominant in those last three starts, going 20 innings and striking out 17 while giving up 8 hits, 3 walks and 2 earned runs.
He’ll look to continue this trend when he faces the Braves tonight, who are 30th in the league versus right-handed pitching with a .101 ISO and 29th in the league with a .285 wOBA. Somehow, the Braves -- an actual Major League Baseball team -- have only hit 20 home runs off right-handed pitching this season, while the next lowest team checks in at 37.
As a -245 favorite at only $8,700, Matt Harvey is a really strong option tonight.
