Three “Cheap” DFS Options for May 15: David DeJesus & More

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor)

We are always looking for intriguing buy low options, whether it’s in a yearly or daily league. In salary cap formats that becomes even more important, because cashing in on a low cost option will allow you to load up on stars at other spots.

With that in mind, here are three potential “cheap” options those in daily formats should consider when setting their lineups for today:

 

Aaron Hill – Arizona Diamondbacks – Second Baseman
Few players have been hotter in the month of May, hitting .452 with 3 HR, 9 RBI and 7 R over 31 AB. That alone is going to put Hill on our radars for daily leagues. Add in the fact that he draws Chad Billingsley, who has allowed 10 ER on 16 H (including 3 HR) and 2 BB over 10.0 IP, and the outlook gets that much better. This is an obvious stacking opportunity, with any Diamondback with the potential to hit the ball out of the ballpark (we’re looking at you Paul Goldschmidt) an ideal play.

David DeJesus – Tampa Bay Rays – Outfielder
Phil Hughes has not been going well, allowing 9 ER on 19 H over his past two starts (12.1 IP). On the flipside DeJesus entered yesterday hitting .333 with 1 HR in May and owns a career mark of 6-10 with 1 HR, 5 RBI and 3 R against Hughes. DeJesus is never going to be a sexy name to plug into your lineup, but he has been hitting in the middle of Tampa Bay’s order, has been going well of late and has a favorable matchup. If there was a time to use him this may be it.

Curtis Granderson – New York Mets – Outfielder
Yes, the Mets’ offense has been pretty poor recently but Granderson has been one of the few bright spots (.263, 2 HR, 4 RBI in May). He’s also hit Kyle Lohse well throughout his career, though he hasn’t faced him since 2008, hitting .471 with 2 HR in 17 AB. Of course everyone has hit well against Lohse this season, whose given up fewer than 3 runs in a start just once this season and has seen opposing hitters get him for a .285 average and 10 HR.
