Welcome to the MLB DFS Playbook for Monday's main slate!

We've got a Coors game on the slate today, so we're going to have to get a couple of pieces there, even if we dig deep for bargains once they set the lineup. If there are any, that is. The Rockies have finlly perked up with this homestand, so expect them to find their groove, especially against Julio Teheran , but don't completely ignore the Braves side. I usually give the visiting team a game to get acclimated to Coors and the altitude, but the lefty/righty match-ups, even with Kyle Freeland might be too good to ignore. We'll have players from both sides here in the Playbook, but literally everyone in that  game should be considered in-play. Again, depending on the lineup and pricing, I may have some low-key names in the example lineups you don't see here.

Gotta be flexible!

Now here's a look at some of my favorites for this eight-game main slate...
