MLB DFS Hitter Logic: June 18th, 2018 (FanDuel Main Slate)

Hey, guys.  What I’m going to do, here, is pull out the hitters that profile best against their respective opposing pitchers for GPP use today.  This will be based on hitter vs. pitch type and handedness ONLY.  The elite plays profile well against more than one pitch the opposing pitcher throws.  Secondary plays profile well against at least one pitch.  There is risk/reward with these plays.  Let’s look at these games.
