We have a 10 game slate to kick off the new week, and a Happy Independence Day to everyone. Some clear pitching options on today's slate, along with some super favorable hitting options. No real weather concerns as of now. Coors Field is on the slate, so if you want to load up on bats from that game you will have to spend down on pitching.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DFS on 7/3/17. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @DFS_Tom.

DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider

Stephen Strasburg vs. NYM (DK - $12,600,  FD - $10,800)

Strasburg is on the bump today, and he is coming off a great start. He put up 13 strikeouts and only two earned runs, in a big bounce back start after a rough outing. Strasburg is a great cash game option today, and he is clearly the top pitcher on the slate. He is up against the Mets who don't strikeout a ton, only 19% VS right-handed pitching. Still a good spot for him, due to the inconsistency of their offense.

Ivan Nova @ PHI (DK - $8,600, FD - $8,300)

Nova is a great GPP option for today, considering he is up against the Phillies, who have one of the weaker offensive teams in the league. Nova doesn't have blow you away strikeout stuff, but he knows how to limit the damage and has hasn't allowed more than four earned runs in any of his last ten starts. Up against the Phillies who have a 23% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers, which is sixth worst in the league. Good upside for him today.

 

DFS Infielders to Consider

Catcher (C)

Stephen Vogt vs. BAL (DK - $3,800, FD - $2,400)

Vogt is the newly acquired catcher for the Brewers, and he made a quick splash with a two home run game last week. Manny Pina played yesterday, so due to the day game after night game situation, Pina probably won't play. Vogt is cheap and has a great hitters park factor today.

First Base (1B)

Justin Smoak @ NYY (DK - $4,900, FD - $3,200)

Love the Smoak monster in this spot today. He is at a favorable hitters park, and is up against Tanaka, who has his fair share of troubles this season. Smoak has been crushing the ball this season vs right-handed pitching, he has a .377 wOBA and a .299 ISO. Big time power upside with this match up, and the park factor.

Second Base (2B)

Rougned Odor vs. BOS (DK - $4,200, FD - $3,100)

Odor is really turning around his slow start to the season, and is in a good spot tonight. This season vs right-handed pitching, he has a .291 wOBA and a .218 ISO. He is at home in a favorable hitters park, and with his price, he makes a great play in all formats.

Shortstop (SS)

Stephen Drew vs. NYM (DK - $2,900, FD - $2,300)

With Trea Turneron the DL for extended period, Drew is in the day to day starting lineup, and he offers some great salary relief. Always nice to get some exposure to the Nationals explosive offense, and when it comes at a discount, you can't pass that up. This season Drew has a .584 wOBA vs left-handed pitching.

Third Base (3B)

Miguel Sano vs. LAA (DK - $4,600, FD - $3,700)

Sano has been one of the best options in the first half of the year at third base, and today is no different. He has a .380 wOBA and a .278 ISO vs right-handed pitching this season. Sano is expensive, but he has shown great consistency this season, and he is viable in all formats.

 

DFS Outfielders to Consider

 Scott Schebler @ COL (DK - $4,000, FD - $3,300)

Schebler is at Coors Field today, so always nice to get some exposure to hitter there. Schebler comes into this game with a .349 wOBA and a .217 ISO vs right-handed pitching. He hasn't been super consistent lately, but the positive park factor makes him a great play for tournaments.

Brian Goodwin vs. NYM (DK - $3,400, FD - $2,500)

Goodwin is still too cheap, especially on FanDuel, and he is viable in all formats. Goodwin offers a nice bit of salary relief, and gives you some exposure to the Nationals offense. Goodwin comes into this game with a .656 wOBA and a .600 ISO vs left-handed pitching.

Charlie Blackmon vs. CIN (DK - $5,500, FD - $4,400)

Its no secret the Rockies have been struggling of late, but they are back at home and in need of a rebound. Blackmon is an All-Star this year, and he has the numbers to back it up. This season at home vs right-handed pitching, Blackmon has a .521 wOBA and a .452 ISO. Elite level numbers, and if you can afford to fit him in your roster, don't pass it up.
