Happy Saturday, October 15th! We have a four-game MLB DFS main slate on tap with multiple series on the line. We have two series currently 2-1 in Atlanta/Philly and Los Angeles/San Diego, Houston is up 2-0 on Seattle, and New York and Cleveland are tied 1-1 heading back to Cleveland. We have a long and exciting day of baseball, so let's jump into our top plays including the likes of Bryce Harper, Aaron Judge, and Yordan Alvarez. Don't forget to check out the MLB lineups page before locking in MLB daily fantasy lineups. Plus, use the MLB daily projections, our MLB DFS Optimizer, and the rest of our MLB DFS lineup tools before setting your lineups. Now let's look at our MLB DFS top picks. 




  • Lance McCullers Jr - McCullers looked fantastic upon returning from injury allowing 2 ER or less over his final 6 starts and did so in 7-of-8. The one in which he didn't he allowed just 3. McCullers has been better at home this year, so this could be a spot to get to him. That's been his MO his whole career, in fact.
  • Triston McKenzie - Look, the Yankees offense looked dead in the water after Giancarlo Stanton's two-run 1st inning HR on Friday. McKenzie is rollin' right now as he's allowed 2 ER over last 3 starts and just 4 over his last 4 starts.
  • Luis Severino - The last time we saw Severino on the mound he threw 7 NO-HIT innings. That's the type of stuff he possesses and he looks all the way back to elite form currently. He might be my per dollar favorite pitcher on the slate.
  • Tyler Anderson - You who nobody is going to play? I get the appeal to use some Padres against Anderson, but he's been nails the entire season. In five games against SD this year, he pitched to a 1.88 ERA and a .183 BAA. We've even seen an increase in K's lately, striking out 6+ in 2-of-3 starts.


  • J.T. Realmuto - Realmuto has had a pretty solid career against Charlie Morton going 10-for-31 (.323 AVG). He has been consistently putting up FP no matter what, notching FP in 10 straight games.
  • Travis D'Arnaud - D'Arnaud is one of the only Braves hitting right now. He has 3 multi-hit games over his last four contests and has been an extra-base hit machine over that span. He had a .197 ISO this year vs. RHP.
  • Austin Nola - This is probably where a lot of people settle in at catcher. Nola's been good lately hitting .313 over his last 10 games and is coming off a two-hit performance from Friday. He has hits in 6 of his last 7 games overall.


  • Freddie Freeman - Freeman has had Musgrove's number throughout their careers as he's 8-for-21 (.381 AVG) with 1 HR and a .458 wOBA. Freeman hit .338 with a .406 wOBA this year vs. RHP.
  • Matt Olson - My gut tells me Olson is the chalk at 1B today. Based on how well he's played and the preconceived notion that Noah Syndergaard has been bad this year. Olson has slashed .382/.500/.941 with 6 HE and 10 RBI over his last 10 games.
  • Ty France - When you look at Lance McCullers' career, you'll note that he has always been worse on the road. He's pitched to a 4.43 ERA for his career away from HOU, while pitching to a 2.67 mark at home. France is 6-for-12 off of him and had a .179 ISO and .340 wOBA vs. RHP this year.
  • Wil Myers - Could the Padres possibly end the Dodgers season tonight? They could, and Myers could be a big reason why. He's hit left-handed pitching really well this year, posting a .231 ISO and .341 wOBA, some of the best marks on the Padres.
  • Yuli Gurriel - It's been a forgettable season for Gurriel, no doubt, but he showed signs of life in Game 1 and now gets a guy who struggles with righty bats. Right-handers hit .324 with an .850 OPS and .365 wOBA against George Kirby this year.


  • Jose Altuve - After seeing the numbers George Kirby put up against righties, it'll be hard not to love Altuve here. He's the premier righty bat in the Astros lineup and once again just got finished with a big campaign. He had a .202 ISO and a .366 wOBA this year.
  • Brandon Drury - Look, I do like Tyler Anderson today, but also understand that the Padres have some thump against southpaws. Drury has been dominant against lefties posting a .327 ISO and .387 wOBA to go along with it.
  • Dylan Moore - Righties have had more success against McCullers this year, so maybe the Mariners turn to Moore over Adam Frazier. Moore's been quite good lately hitting .286 over his last 10 games and .300 since the start of September.


  • Alex Bregman - Bregman, known for how dominant he's been against left-handed pitching, has been incredibly good against righties this year. He posted a .218 ISO and .365 wOBA against righties. Righties have an .850 OPS, .168 ISO, and .349 wOBA vs. George Kirby this year.
  • Max Muncy - Muncy has really solid numbers against Jose Musgrove notching a 9-for-21 (.429 AVG) with 1 HR and 4 RBI. Muncy has a .188 ISO and .323 wOBA vs. RHP this year.
  • Eugenio Suárez - Before his 0-for-3 on Thursday, he had 4 straight multi-hit games and we know the power is always in the chamber ready to be unlocked. He has a .208 ISO and a .321 wOBA vs. RHP.


  • Trea Turner - Turner has not had all that too much success against Joe Musgrove, but he does have 1 HR against him. Turner had homered in 3 straight games before his 1-for-4 on Friday night. Turner has a .334 wOBA vs. RHP this year.
  • Jeremy Peña - Pena has been really good at the plate lately, notching multiple hits in 2-of-3 and 3-of-5. He's hitting .361 with a 1.073 OPS over his last 10 games.
  • Bryson Stott - Stott has looked more and more comfortable at the plate lately and lefty power has given Charlie Morton issues all year long. Stott has some pop and LHH posted a .222 ISO and .331 wOBA vs. Morton this year.



  • Aaron Judge - It's been a struggle for Judge, but is this the spot things turn around? Ownership might be low on him with popularity shifting towards Harper, Acuna, and Rodriguez. Judge hit 32 HR on the road this year and 48 of them came against RHP.
  • Bryce Harper - Top OF spend up of the slate. Harper crushed baseballs on Friday and has been crushing this entire postseason up to this point. He's belted 2 HR and has 3 2B as well, which is why the Phillies are 1 win away from the NLCS. He's 10-for-24 (.417 AVG) with 1 HR vs. Charlie Morton.
  • Julio Rodríguez - I think the Mariners fall by the wayside today as everyone gravitates towards Lance McCullers, but road McCullers is not the same as home McCullers. JRod SZN has been in full effect this postseason and we haven't even seen him swipe a bag or hit a home run yet. One or both of those things happen today.
  • Yordan Alvarez - I mean, what is there to say? In two postseason games he has 2 HR, 1 2B, 3 R, & 7 RBI. IN TWO GAMES! One of which he walked off with a 3-run homer. He's on a different planet right now. Chalk of the slate.
  • Michael Harris II - I know he's struggling lately, but man his numbers against right-handed pitching this year were gooood. He posted a .257 ISO and .391 wOBA against right-handers for crying out loud!
  • Kyle Tucker - Tucker homered in Game 2 and has been good against righties all year, notching a .206 ISO and .355 wOBA.
  • Brandon Marsh - In a wrap around Phillies stack I really like Marsh hitting at the bottom of the Philly lineup. He's hit .280 over his last 10 games and hit .312 against right-handed pitching this year.
