I realized that I haven't been sharing the wealth enough lately. Well yeah the picks in the DFS Playbook have been right on but I feel bad leaving out some really great websites that are hosting great events everyday. So I want to take a moment here to remind you that sites like FanThrowdown, DraftDay & Fantasy Feud are doing outstanding work and have a ton of great cash prizes available each and every day. If you guys play on one of these sites or any others that we are not covering enough of here in the DFS Playbook PLEASE let us know about it by commenting on the bottom of the article or Tweeting to us (@Jeff_Mans or @FantasyNomad).
Tonight the most obvious play on the board is Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez against the Astros. I simply cannot think of a reason not to start King Felix tonight. Although I am sure there will be a few hipsters out there who will point to his two less than stellar performances against Houston earlier this year and advise against using him. But that would be really nitpicking as defense and pitch count hurt him in each outing and he still only gave up four earned runs in 12 innings while striking out 10 which isn't bad at all. The other pitching option tonight is Clayton Kershaw. For me this is a make or break start for Kershaw. Last time out he got torched by the Diamondbacks and lasted just 1.2 innings. If he gets knocked around again tonight I am going to start worrying about the health of his left shoulder. I am fine with starting him on the road again tonight as I fully expect a dominant performance out of him this time around.
