Tonights DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Suggestions

Patrick Corbin: $9,300, @CIN- Corbin has a great 9K/9, less than 2.5 walks a game, and a 3.18 xFIP but is still priced way too low on DraftKings.  Of course there is some risk but for his skill is his priced great.

Collin McHugh: $8,700, vs. TB- He is facing Chris Archer which is obviously a better play.  But if you don’t have the money play McHugh because the Rays just have no offensive threat against righties.

Also consider: Chris Archer, Ivan Nova

Catchers

Kyle Schwarber: $4,900- With another huge DFS night Wednesday I see no reason for it to stop Thursday.  Play Schwarber tonight.

Victor Martinez: $3,500- Martinez is a great play tonight against Perez.  He has almost a 1.000 OPS the last few seasons against lefties.

Also consider: If you can’t afford these 2, go cheap tonight

1st Base

Paul Goldschmidt: $5,700- Playing in CIN tonight that ballpark boost power all by itself.  The price makes him a hard play but if he fits, play him.

Anthony Rizzo: $5,100- The Cubs offense has been on fire recently so why not play their best player?  His numbers have been great and he’s cheaper than Goldy.

Also consider: Justin Bour

2nd Base

Anthony Rendon: $4,000- I was big on Rendon yesterday, but sadly he sit out.  He is in the lineup tonight and I love the matchup again in Coors.

Ben Zobrist: $4,500- Zobrist has been mashing since joining the Royals.  Batters have been crushing the ball in Fenway recently and look for Zobrist to be a key.

Also consider: Matt Duffy, Chris Coghlan

3rd Base

Kris Bryant: $4,600- Also see Anthony Rizzo

Todd Frazier: $4,500- Frazier rates the highest points per dollar today among 3rd basemen, enough said.

Also consider: Miguel Sano

Shortstop

Ian Desmond: $4,600- Nationals in Colorado is a common theme tonight.  Desmond has a good price with the HR potential.

Erick Aybar: $2,900- The biggest intrigue of Aybar is that he is so cheap.  There are no exciting SS today.  So save money.

Also consider: Alcides Escobar

Outfield

Jason Werth: $3,700- Im saving money tonight in my outfield.  Im going for cheaper guys with HR power.  Jason Werth fits that bill.

Chris Coghlan: $3,400- In that power filled lineup that the Cubs are running out look for Chris to leave the yard, or at least pick up some RBIs.

Raji Davis: $3,300- He has an .845 OPS and speed in addition to that.  He has a great matchup in Martin Perez who rarely strikes out anyone.

Also consider: Mike Trout, JD Martinez
