Wednesday baseball is usually a split MLB DFS slate, and tonight is no different. We have the daily fantasy baseball main slate that starts at 6:40 pm ET on FanDuel with eight games, and then a 7:05 pm ET lineup lock on DraftKings and Yahoo with six games. The MLB DFS May 18 slate features one of the best collections of starting pitchers that we have seen all season and you will want to pay up if you are going to stay with the competition. There are five genuine aces taking the hill tonight, including Gerrit Cole, Max Scherzer, Shohei Ohtani, Kevin Gausman, and Lucas Giolito – so important MLB daily fantasy lineup decisions will have to be made. There do not seem to be any major weather issues, but keep an eye on our DFS Alarm MLB weather report as well as our MLB Tools page which is full of MLB daily projections, MLB statistics, MLB daily starting lineups, and much more.
