Wow. We have some serious pitching options tonight, as the stars have aligned and we will be seeing a few aces throwing on the same night for the first time since Opening Day.

Who's ready to get down to business for the MLB season?

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball MLB lineup picks for DraftKings on 4/26/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from high-priced to low-priced options and identify options who will out-perform their expectations, including sleepers and value plays on DraftKings.

 

DFS Lineup Stacks to Target on DraftKings

 

Pittsburgh Pirates - The Pirates have a great offense, and they will be playing in Coors tonight. They will likely be the highest owned stack in the league, and for good reason. They get a good matchup against Jorge De La Rosa, and they have a good of a shot as anyone to put up a 10 run game tonight.

Colorado Rockies - This could be one of the only times that the Rockies are playing at home and they may be a contrarian stack. They get a tough matchup against Gerrit Cole, but even he has struggled a bit this season. The Rockies aren't more than a GPP stack, but they have as much upside as anyone tonight.

St. Louis Cardinals - If you aren't looking to stack a team in Coors, the Cardinals make a great option. They get a matchup against Shelby Miller, who has looked awful this season and enters this game with a 8.59 ERA. The Cardinals have had a surprisingly good offense this season, and they're a great stacking option tonight.

 

DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider on DraftKings

 

Clayton Kershaw - Kershaw isn't going to come cheap, but he displayed great upside in his last game. He can throw complete games while striking out double digit batters on any given night. He gets a good matchup against the Marlins, and Kershaw can be used in all leagues.

Johnny Cueto - Cueto has been a mixed bag this season, but he has displayed great upside. He is priced significantly lower than some of the other elite options, and he gets the best matchup against the Padres. Cueto can also be used in all leagues.

 

DFS Infielders to Consider on DraftKings

Catcher (C)

Miguel Montero - Montero has been awful recently, but he has displayed good upside this season. He's hitting in one of the best lineups in the MLB, and he'll have plenty of opportunities to score fantasy points tonight. He's a GPP only option, though, as he also comes with plenty of risk.

First Base (1B)

John Jaso - Jaso has enjoyed a great start to the season, but he hasn't displayed much power. That could change in Colorado, as anyone can hit home runs in Coors. Jaso gets a good matchup, and he can be used in all leagues.

Second Base (2B)

Neil Walker - Walker is on a tear right now, and his price tag is ridiculous. He has hit 7 home runs in his last 10 games, and he'll get another great matchup again tonight. He isn't really known for being that powerful of a player, but he can be used in all leagues while he's this hot.

Shortstop (SS)

Aledmys Diaz - For whatever reason, Diaz isn't an every day starter for the Cardinals, but he can be used if he is. On the season, he has a .509 OBP with 12 extra-base hits and 11 RBIs. The only problem with him is that he hits late in the lineup, but that hasn't stopped him yet, and he can be used in all leagues.

Third Base (3B)

David Freese - Freese will get the Coors boost tonight, but his price doesn't represent that. He has been playing well for the Pirates, and he has crushed left-handed pitching in his career. He's hitting in the middle of their lineup, and he's an extremely safe option tonight.

 

DFS Outfielders to Consider on DraftKings

 

Starling Marte - Obviously all of the Pirates outfielders can be used, but Marte is my favorite of the group. He got off to a terrible start, but he has been playing extremely well recently. He has dominated left-handed pitching in his career, and he has a tremendous combination of speed and power. He can be used in all leagues.

Adam Jones - Regardless of how good or bad Adam Jones is playing right now, this is too cheap for his talent. He has gotten off to a slow start after being injured, but Jones has ridiculous upside. For now, he's a GPP only option, though.

Adam Duvall - Duvall was recently named an everyday player for the Reds, and I'm surprised it took this long. He has loads of power in his bat, although he hasn't really flashed that this season. He gets a good matchup against Colon, and Duvall is a fastball hitter. He's a great GPP option tonight.
