Happy Tax Day? Is there such a thing? Probably not. But it is Tax Day and if you don't see yourself getting a return, let's try and slide you into some DFS plays that will, at the least, make you feel like you're getting a return.

It looks like another day to pay down for pitching, even with Clayton Kershaw joining the slate. I'll say this, right off the bat -- I'm fading him. First off, how effective will he be in his first competitive effort back on the hill? How many innings will he actually pitch given the way Dave Roberts has been babying his pitching staff this season. And have you actually looked at the Reds numbers against left-handed pitching this season? There is nothing about Kershaw or this match-up that makes me think it's worth spending up the way the DFS sites have him priced. I'm having a hard enough time thinking about paying up for Trevor Bauer against the Mariners. There's no way I'm doing it for Kershaw.

That being said, let's take a look at who I do want to use for tonight's contests...
