Welcome to Friday! After a small slate yesterday with only 6 games all day, we are back today with another full day of baseball to take us to the weekend! Let’s enjoy our Friday in style and build some winning MLB DFS lineups!




We have a huge 12-game main slate today on both DraftKings and FanDuel that will be starting at 7:05 PM ET. 

Unfortunately, there are no day games to get us through our Friday, but that means we have plenty of time to get dialed into this evening’s slate. With that said, let’s jump right into today’s playbook and some of my favorite MLB DFS picks for the day!

MLB DFS Picks & Daily Fantasy Playbook Today, May 10

MLB Weather Today, 5/10

Some light rain, but it looks far from anything to worry about

A little more rain than in Baltimore, but it still looks like the worst-case scenario is a delayed start.  

MLB DFS Lineup Construction Thoughts

With such a big slate, there is no shortage of ways to construct your lineup. There are top-end and value options at basically every position and plenty of pitching options to choose from. This is one of those days when I am likely making multiple lineups because there are so many great pitching options and lineups to stack. 

With so many pitchers, there are certain to be ones I like that won’t make the cut to be on my list of favorites, so I will give some honorable mentions today to Tanner Houck, Joe Ryan, Ranger Suarez, and Cole Irvin.

On the offensive side, there is also no shortage of good lineups to choose from, but some of my favorite lineups to target today include the Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies, Milwaukee Brewers, and Atlanta Braves.




Recommended MLB DFS Starting Pitchers

Top Options For Strikeouts

Best Odds For A Win




Core MLB DFS Pitchers

Tyler Glasnow, Los Angeles Dodgers 

Tyler Glasnow is rightfully the most expensive pitcher on the slate today. He had that one rough outing against the Nationals of all teams, but besides that, he has struck out 14, 10, 9, and 10 in the other 4 of his last 5 starts and has an over 32% strikeout rate on the season.

The San Diego Padres aren’t a rollover team or anything, and they don’t strike out a ton against right-handers, which are things you would care about if this wasn’t Tyler Glasnow. I don’t think the opponent makes a big difference in what Glasnow is able to do on any given night, and I will happily find ways to pay the high price to get him. 

Andrew Abbott, Cincinnati Reds 

Andrew Abbott is easily my favorite cheap option today, and I don’t see why he should be priced at $6,700. He has been pitching decently all season with a 3.32 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and a 22% strikeout rate. In his last two starts, he struck out 7 against the Texas Rangers and 8 against Baltimore in Cincinnati while only giving up 2 earned runs (2 solo shots). 

Now, he gets to face the San Francisco Giants in San Francisco. He started the season in the mid $8,000 price range, which is probably where he should be, so with this matchup and big price drop, I am going to happily take Andrew Abbott

Bryan Woo, Seattle Mariners 

I am very excited about the return of Bryan Woo. He makes his season debut today, and while I normally avoid someone in their first start back from the IL, Woo is an exception today. He threw 5 innings and struck out 6 in his last rehab start. I am sure he will still be on a pitch limit today, but he should be allowed to go at least 75ish pitches which will be plenty to put up a solid outing against Oakland today.

Logan Webb, San Francisco Giants

Logan Webb is coming off back-to-back tough outings, but they were against the Red Sox and Phillies, who are both tough offenses. He still managed a season-high 6 strikeouts against the Phillies in the last outing. 

Now, he returns to his home park in San Francisco and faces the Cincinnati Reds, who have the second-highest strikeout rate against right-handers in the league, behind only the Seattle Mariners. This matchup, Webb’s talent, and being back in a pitcher-friendly park make him an easy pick for today. The only reason he isn't higher up on my list is because I am going for his opponent, Andrew Abbott, with the discount and don't want to put both in the same lineup.  

Jon Gray, Texas Rangers

Jon Gray is no stranger to pitching in Coors and is even someone we have seen excel pitching in that park. Colorado’s offense has been bad enough that you can attack them even when they are in Colorado. Jon Gray has at least 7 strikeouts in 4 of his last 6 starts and has been pitching quite well. 

The strikeout upside, great win potential, and Jon Gray’s comfortableness in Coors make me happy to take Jon Gray as a cheap option today, and he shouldn’t have any problem putting up some decent numbers at this price compared to a lot of the pitchers priced around him. 




Recommended MLB DFS Hitters

Highest Expected Run Totals 

Core MLB DFS Hitters

*Note: Will Be Updated As Official Starting Lineups Are Released

Bryce Harper, 1B Philadelphia Phillies

Over his last 20 games Bryce Harper has a 1.025 OPS and 6 homers. He just ended his 3-game homer streak, but I won’t be surprised if he gets back on it today. 

Bryce Harper isn’t someone who I shy away from in the lefty-lefty matchup, and Trevor Rogers has been terrible (he just gave up 8 runs to Oakland). The Phillies are the hottest team in baseball right now, and I will be shocked if that stops against Trevor Rogers

Ketel Marte, 2B Arizona Diamondbacks

Ketel Marte has a 1.152 OPS against left-handers this season and has always been a guy who crushes lefties. Cole Irvin has been pitching great lately, and this isn’t the old Camden yards that was such a hitter’s park now that they’ve moved that wall back, but all that isn’t enough to move me away from thinking that Ketel Marte can still attack Irvin in this matchup and have a huge day for this Diamondbacks offense. 

Rafael Devers, 3B Boston Red Sox

Stacking batters against Patrick Corbin is one of my favorite pastimes. Sure, the Red Sox still have the highest strikeout rate against left-handed pitchers, but this is Patrick Corbin. This season, he has an under-15 % strikeout rate, a 6.45 ERA, and a 1.81 WHIP. 

Rafael Devers is another guy I am not worried about sitting in the lefty-lefty matchup. Coming in at under 5K today seems like too good a price not to go after in this matchup. 

Christian Yelich, OF Milwaukee Brewers

Christian Yelich is back! He went 0-5 in his first game back, but yesterday he had a 3-4 day with a triple. He looked amazing to start the season before hitting the IL and I expect him to pick right back where he left off and continue to crush the ball. 

This is a solid matchup against Lance Lynn, who just gave up 5 runs to the Chicago White Sox. I think the Brewers continue to roll after their 7 runs scored yesterday (and that was facing Sonny Gray).
