Here are our picks for tonights slate of MLB DFS games on DraftKings
Clayton Kershaw: $14,400 vs. CHC- Yes, Kershaw has a steep price but it’s Clayton Kershaw so you can pay it. He has a 2.12 xFIP, strikes out 11 per 9 and doesn’t walk anyone.
Jon Gray: $4,300 @ PIT- Here is where we make up for buying Kershaw. Not a great matchup but a good K guy with a very low price.
Also consider: Francisco Liriano,
Brian McCann: $4,000- He isn’t that cheap but he is the only raw power guy tonight that won’t bust your bank.
Also consider: Jesus Montero, Wilson Ramos
Mark Teixeira: $4,500- Tonight will be a Yankee heavy lineup. This tends to happen when you face the worst pitcher on all the slate of games.
Prince Fielder: $4,000- Not a good matchup but you can get Fielder cheapish tonight in a very good hitters ballpark.
Also consider: Adrain Gonzalez, Ryan Zimmerman
Darnell Sweeney: $2,000- Available tonight for the DraftKings minimum, here is another example of how we afford Kershaw.
Anthony Rendon: $3,700- Rendon has finally been bouncing back well recently. He is decently priced with his power showing recently.
Also consider: Kolten Wong
Troy Tulowitki: $4,300- Tulo is a must play for me tonight. Tulo is great at dominating lefties and that is who he draws tonight.
Ian Desmond: $3,800- Desmond is good against lefties and is facing a decent one tonight in Conley. Cheaper than Tulo also.
Also consider: Jhonny Peralta
Matt Carpenter: $3,800- Look for Carp to draw a walk or 2 tonight in put the ball in play in a good ballpark for him.
Josh Donaldson: $5,700- No explanation needed
Also consider: Todd Frazier
Nelson Cruz: $5,600- Tonight we are going with power in the OF. Cruz is the perfect fit for that
Jose Bautista: $5,300- If I saw power you’ve got to think JoeyBats.
Coco Crisp: $2,500- Cheap and a high upside.
Also consider: Brett Gardner, Carlos Gomez, Jayson Werth
