We move onto the night games with Clayton Kershaw leading the way which makes for some very interesting line-up decisions. Do you pay for the best pitcher in the game or fade him hoping he does not have a monster game. While on analyzing my roster on Draftkings, you can use Kershaw but have to use Matt Shoemaker along side him. You can't afford any hitters if you try to use Julio Teheran or Madison Bumgarner. There is not much value with the hitters tonight and everyone is going to after the Braves hitters tonight. I will once again recommend not put too much on the line tonight with the lack options.
There is some risk with weather as it relates to the Cubs/Giants game. It should be able to be played with some patience as long as the field holds up with a pounding of rain the area has taken the last 12 hours. We remember the fiasco from the other night and the drainage at Wrigley Field is one of the worst in the league. Good Luck!

It is an extremely light day in baseball so you have a special edition of the DFS playbook for the afternoon games and will have a night time version as well. There a three really good options in Corey Kluber, Alex Cobb and David Price going today but affording the hitters becomes a problem. I have listed plenty of value plays in the hitter sections to help afford these starters. If you must go cheap on a pitcher, I would go Dallas Keuchel but not very confident in that play. On a day when there is only 4 games, I don't recommend playing to heavy in this type of enviroment but I know we can't resist dabbling in it.
Here is the lineup I am using on Draftkings:
P Alex Cobb, P Corey Kluber, C Francisco Cervelli, 1B V Martinez, 2B Anthony Rendon, 3B Carlos Sananta, SS Zach Walters, OF Ichiro Suzuki, OF Robbie Grossman, OF Jayson Werth
P Alex Cobb, C Victor Martinez 1B Carlos Santana, 2B Anthony Rendon, SS Ian Desmond, 3B Martin Prado, OF Robbie Grossman, OF Mark Trumbo, OF Ichiro Suzuki
***Both of these lineups are only entered in tournaments only.
