The second pitcher to have on your radar is from the same game. The Orioles will counter Wheeler with Corbin Burnes, who is 7-2 with a 2.08 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. He's been excellent, so there won't be a lot of runs in this game.

Tyler Glasnow ($10600 on DraftKings, $10800 on FanDuel)

Tyler Glasnow has been fantastic for the Los Angeles Dodgers this year. The starting pitcher has six wins and a very nice 3.24 ERA. He's good for a lot of strikeouts as well, as he's tied for the MLB lead with 116 and has a 0.94 WHIP.


Top MLB DFS hitters for June 16

Freddie Freeman ($5600 on DraftKings, $3600 on FanDuel)

Freddie Freeman has been one of the most consistent players in baseball this year, and he's a good DFS pick today. He's hitting .297 and has nine home runs. His .890 OPS is 12th in MLB.

Marcell Ozuna ($6100 on DraftKings, $4100 on FanDuel)

Marcell Ozuna is having a fantastic year at the plate for the Atlanta Braves. He's leading baseball with a .327 batting average, but he also has 20 home runs (third in MLB), 62 RBIs (tied for second), and a 1.021 OPS (third in MLB).

Yordan Alvarez ($5400 on DraftKings, $3900 on FanDuel)

Yordan Alvarez is one of baseball's most imposing hitters. The Houston Astros might be bad this year, but Alvarez has been great. He's hitting .287 with 14 home runs, 46 RBIs, and a .871 OPS, so pick him up for DFS.


Budget picks for June 16 DFS

Riley Greene ($4900 on DraftKings, $3000 on FanDuel)

Riley Greene is one of the few Detroit Tigers playing well offensively this season. He's got 14 home runs, 36 RBIs, and a .836 OPS. For this discounted price, you won't find many better options for fantasy.

Julio Rodriguez ($5000 on DraftKings, $3200 on FanDuel)

Julio Rodriguez is at a lower price range because he's not enjoying a top-notch offensive season for the Seattle Mariners. Nevertheless, he does have a solid .267 batting average and a career OPS of .803. He's due to bounce back at some point.

Lane Thomas ($4500 on DraftKings, $3100 on FanDuel)

Lane Thomas is not having a great season: .238 average, six home runs, and a .688 OPS. However, he has shown a talent with the bat in his hands in the past and at the price range, he's a safe budget option for some potential fantasy points.
