DFS Lineup Construction Thoughts

Some pretty interesting pitching spots with only one starter priced above $10,000 on DraftKings. I think we see George Kirby and Merrill Kelly be the top spend up options with Seth Lugo popping as a mid-tier play. When it comes to bats we should look at the Orioles and potentially Royals as contrarian plays.

Favorite Starters to Use for DFS Lineups

George Kirby, Seattle Mariners

Kirby hasn't been great lately but as is the case with every slate, he figures to be the highest rostered pitcher as he draws the coveted Oakland Athletics matchups. In his one start against Oakland this season he was good, not great, going seven innings while allowing three runs and striking out just two. He did get the win in that start and the win equity is why so many will be on him today.

Hunter Greene, Cincinnati Reds

This is a pure GPP play here. We know Greene is incredibly inconsistent but he, more than anyone else, has the highest strikeout potential on this slate and today he faces the team with the highest strikeout rate in baseball against right-handed pitching. The issue, of course, is the home run ball. Greene gives up a lot of them and the Twins hit a lot of home runs as well. We are hoping Greene can miss bats today while not getting to banged up when the inevitable home run is hit.

Seth Lugo, San Diego Padres

Some more win equity here with the Padres big favorites tonight against the Rockies. Lugo has had a pretty good season and while he got roughed up by the Astros a few starts ago that shouldn't be the case today against a bad Rockies lineup. In two starts this season against Colorado, Lugo is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA while striking out 16 over 14 innings.

Highest Expected Run Totals 

Favorite Hitters to Use for DFS Lineups

Gunnar Henderson, 3B Baltimore Orioles

Love me some Orioles hitters today with Cristian Javier on the mound. Lefties own a .362 wOBA with a .497 ISO off of Javier this season and Henderson is on another one of his hot streaks, hitting .333 with an OPS of .992 over the last 10 games.

Michael Harris, OF  Atlanta Braves

The Braves are set to beat up on Aaron Nola today so why not get some exposure with the reigning NL Rookie of the Year at a pretty nice price tag across the platforms. Harris is hitting .300 with an OPS of .967 over the last 10 games.

Ryan O'Hearn, 1B Baltimore Orioles

O'Hearn just continues to hit the baseball. We loved him last night against Hunter Brown and he delivered with a home run for us. I'm going right back to the well here today against Cristian Javier that has really struggled against left-handed hitters.
