4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays for 9/23/16
Adrian Beltre, 3B, Texas Rangers
FanDuel Price: $3,000
After it looked like age might be catching up with the now 37-year-old Adrian Beltre in 2015, he has bounced back this season, slashing .299/.358/.513 through 615 plate appearances, with a .368 wOBA and a .215 ISO that is his best since 2012. His 30 home runs and 84 runs scored are both his best marks since 2013, and his 98 RBI are again his best since 2012.
His bat has been especially hot this month, leading to a huge .430 wOBA through 19 games in September, and his matchup tonight against Kendall Graveman gives him a good shot to continue on that roll.
Graveman has a 4.64 SIERA on the year, to go with his 4.51 over his career, and he is sporting an ugly 13.4% strikeout rate with a 6.2% walk rate. He has had an especially rough time recently and has allowed 12 runs through three starts (16 2/3 innings) in September.
