Happy Tuesday! We have game 3 of both ALDS today with the Houston Astros heading to Minnesota to face the Twins, having lost home-field advantage splitting the first two games in Houston, and then there is the Baltimore Orioles against the wall as they head into Texas after losing both of the first two games against the Rangers in Baltimore. We are reaching the back end of the rotations with Cristian Javier facing Sonny Gray in the first game and then Nathan Eovaldi facing Dean Kremer this evening. The 2-game slate will be starting at 4:07 PM EST on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Let’s create some more winning MLB DFS lineups today as the postseason continues. Make sure to check out all of our amazing MLB DFS tools as they are always worth going through before building your lineups, as are the Vegas Odds, but let’s dive into today’s MLB DFS playbook to help build some winning lineups today!  


MLB DFS Playbook October 10

MLB Weather Updates

No weather concerns today. 

Recommended DFS Starting Pitchers

Sonny Gray, Minnesota Twins

Sonny Gray was brilliant in his first outing of the postseason, shutting down the Toronto Blue Jays. He threw 5 scoreless innings while striking out 6, leading the Twins to their sweep in the AL Wild Card series. This follows what has been a great season for Gray, throwing 184 innings with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. I expect him to have another great showing in Minnesota today and give the Twins a real chance at claiming a 2-1 lead in this series. 

Honorable Mention: Dean Kremer

Recommended DFS Hitters

Favorite Infielders

Gunnar Henderson, Baltimore Orioles

Gunnar Henderson went 2 for 4 with a homer in the Orioles' 11-8 loss to the Rangers in game 2. I think he will deliver another great performance to propel the Orioles to their first win, extending this series. He is likely the AL Rookie of the Year and should be able to keep producing on the big stage today. 

Carlos Correa, Minnesota Twins

We are talking about one of the most prolific hitters in postseason history, and he is only 29. He continues to deliver with 8 hits already this postseason, including a 3-hit performance in the last game. I think the hits continue today in Minnesota, and the Twins claim a 2-1 lead in this series. 

Honorable mention: Corey Seager, Royce Lewis, Alex Kirilloff

Favorite Outfielders

Cedric Mullins, Baltimore Orioles

Cedric Mullins has been held silent so far this postseason, going 0 for 8 in the first two games. With their backs up against the wall, I think the Mullins Magic returns today in Texas. He is a great hitter, and I don’t see him being held hitless again today. 

Austin Hays, Baltimore Orioles

If you haven’t noticed, I am in on the Baltimore Orioles today. I understand that Nathan Eovaldi was brilliant in his last outing, but I really believe we will see this offense produce with their season on the line. Austin Hays grabbed 3 hits, including a double and a walk, in the last game, and I think he adds to their offense once again today.

Honorable mention: Adolis Garcia, Evan Carter, Yordan Alvarez, Kyle Tucker, Anthony Santander
