The pitchers are plentiful tonight with many good ones to choose from. A major thing to note as of late on Draftkings is that the prices for hitters have become much lower over the last week or so which really makes it easier to pay up for the top pitchers tonight. Cole Hamels gets top billing based on value against the Mets who have been really struggling to hit over the last week. Francisco Liriano can save you some money as he has been throwing the ball well but always a risk for a blow-up.
Adrian Gonzalez is again another must play hitter where he has been dominant in Miller Park with another monster night yesterday. The catcher position is dreadful tonight and will be a great place to save some salary. Kyle Seager and Kole Calhoun are going to be must starts for me tonight as well. There are plenty of value plays in the playbook as well and I will try to update this around 30 minutes before games start as more lineups come out. If you like to go the stacking route, the Dodgers and Pirates should be able to put up some runs.
**With every catcher listed out of the lineup, I am going Travis D'Arnaud or Mike Zunino..
|Rene Rivera - OUT||C||2500||2500||4450|
|Jordan Pacheco - OUT||C/1B||3100||2200||4250|
|John Jaso - OUT||C||3400||2800||4700|
Samardjia i just dont trust as a long time cubs fan. I know he is throwing well but dont think he keeps it up. Liriano is not really a cash game play more for a tourney
upated with a note above for the catchers...on dk go d'arnaud or zunino since they have power.. on fd could go gussewich
Just curious on your thoughts re: J. Samardja. He seems to have a better matchup than Liriano? Also, Machado has great BvP against Lackey. What do u think? Thanks Teddy.
Hey Ted! Looks like all three catchers listed right now are out of the lineup according to Draft Kings. Any more plays? --Josh
