DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (10/10/19): MLB DFS Lineups

Thursday brings us a one-game slate between the Houston Astros and the Tampa Bay Rays. Therefore, for the first time this season we will be pivoting with this article and looking at some showdown game style options. For those unfamiliar with the showdown game mode, you select a roster of six players, with of those players being your "captain". The "captain" earns you 1.5x the fantasy points but also costs 1.5 times their standard salary.

The Astros are heavy favorites in this one, and with the projected total sitting around seven leaning on pitching might be the way in this lineup style.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 10/10/19. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. Be sure to also check out all the Vegas Odds for today's slate. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @benrolfe15.

DraftKings DFS Captain Selection

George Springer, HOU (vs TB) - $13,500

Springer has amazing numbers against right-handed pitchers this season, with a .299 batting average, 31 home runs, .322 ISO and a .407 wOBA. Getting him as the fourth most expensive hitter feels like a bargain and I am going to take full advantage.


DraftKings DFS Utility Selections

Gerrit Cole, HOU (vs. TB) - $12,000

I just could not work out how an $18,000 price for Cole as the captain works. therefore, I am going to name him as a utility, hope to lock in those 30 points a game he averages and then rely on a slightly cheaper captain to top me up. Cole is a stud and my feeling is that he returns you solid value even if Houston lose this game.

Austin Meadows, TB (@ HOU) - $8,400 

Meadows is my second captain choice tonight as he has a nice numbers against right-handed pitchers as well. So far this season he has a .298 batting average, 24 home runs, .278 ISO and a .394 wOBA. Using Meadows as your captain opens up the chance to be more flexible with other options, but Springer against Glasnow is a safer bet than anyone against Cole.

Ji-Man Choi, TB (@ HOU) - $7,400

Choi against righties is worth a gamble, with his .274 batting average, a7 home runs, .219 ISO and .364 wOBA

Willy Adames, TB (@ HOU) - $6,000

Adames has nice numbers in 2019 against right-handed pitchers, with a .292 batting average and a .347 wOBA. His ISO is lacking at .166 but this game has a feeling of being small ball about it and Adames could be an interesting factor.

Joey Wendle, TB (@ HOU) - $4,400

Wendle has started two games in this series and has solid if unspectacular numbers against right-handed pitching. His .261 batting average and .306 wOBA are a solid floor, even if his .136 ISO is underwhelming. At this price, he can contribute and that is all you can ask for less than $5,000
