DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider

Jeff Samardzija - at CWS (DK - $8,200, FD - $8,800)

Shark has been just about untouchable in the last month, throwing 34 innings with a 2.38 ERA and 30 strikeouts. He should have no problems against a White Sox lineup that has just a .304 wOBA against righties, ranking them 28th in all of baseball. Consider him in both GPP and cash games.

Zack Godley - vs SD (DK - $7,600, FD - 8,500)

Godley is a huge bargain when you look at the kind of year he's had, posting a 3.21 ERA with a 26.1% K-rate and 9.0% walk-rate. His fantastic season has been supported by a 2.96 Deserved Run Average. On Saturday, Godley faces the second-worst lineup in the league, the Padres, who have a .303 wOBA against righties. They also have the second-highest K-rate, at 25.0%, so Godley has some huge strikeout upside.



DFS Infielders to Consider

J.T. Realmuto - C, at ATL (DK - $3,500, FD - $2,700)

Realmuto has one of the highest floors for any catcher, making him a great cash game option on Saturday. He has a 126 wRC+ against lefties, and comes in at a very fair price.

Hanley Ramirez - 1B, vs TB (DK - $3,800, FD - $3,000)

Hanley is at home and in the middle of the Red Sox lineup, which means he has an opportunity for lots of RBIs. Fenway Park is one of the best hitter's parks in the league, so if you're looking for some cheap production from your first baseman, turn to Hanley.

Cesar Hernandez - 2B, at WAS (DK - $3,300, FD - $3,100)

You may not have noticed, but Cesar Hernandez has put together a strong last 15 days out of the Phillies leadoff spot, batting .317 with an .864 OPS. As the leadoff hitter, he will have more plate appearances than any other batter, and will have a good chance at scoring some runs.

Justin Turner - 3B, vs COL (DK - $3,800, FD - $3,400)

It's crazy to see how low Turner's price has become, as he's got an insane 153 wRC+ on the year. Take advantage of this price as he takes on German Marquez, owner of a 4.26 ERA.

Javier Baez - SS, at KC (DK - $3,600, FD - $3,500)

Baez has been a fantasy catalyst in the last month, hitting five homers with four steals and a .277 batting average. He can give you production in lots of different ways and is at a cheap price on Saturday.


DFS Outfielders to Consider

Rhys Hoskins - OF, at WAS (DK - $3,800, FD - $3,600)

Maybe the hype has cooled down on Hoskins a bit, but he's a very savvy play on Saturday against Edwin Jackson. Jackson has a horrible 5.56 FIP, meaning that a ton of regression is coming his way. Some owners may avoid batters facing Jackson because of his low ERA, which makes Hoskins an outstanding contrarian play, as Jackson isn't actually pitching well.

Lonnie Chisenhall - OF, vs BAL (DK - $4,300, FD - $2,900)

Chisenhall is healthy and back in his everyday role, and has put up a monster .305/.379/.562 line this year. He is going to crush Gabriel Ynoa, who had a 5.25 ERA in triple-A this year and is making his first start of the season. A full Indians stack is a play to consider, but if not, at least consider Chisenhall for your lineups.

David Peralta - OF, vs SD (DK - $3,800, FD - $3,400)

Peralta has been incredibly cold lately, but Saturday is an opportunity to buy low as he takes on Jhoulys Chacin. Chacin has a 4.44 FIP, and Peralta is at home in Arizona, a fantastic offensive environment.
