We have a two-game slate to look at today which is the best we are going to get in the playoffs, so let's jump in.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 10/16/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

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 @DFS_Tom.

Editor's Note: Stay on top of our MLB off-season news and fantasy analysis all year round. Read our daily fantasy columns about MLB prospects, dynasty outlooks, player outlooks and much more. It's always fantasy baseball season here. Let's Go!


DraftKings DFS Players

Alex Bregman - 3B, HOU vs BOS (DK - $5,200)

Bregman has two hits and six walks in the first two games of this series and will continue to help carry the Astros offense. He has .390 wOBA and a .243 ISO this season vs right-handed pitchers, along with having 22 of his 31 home runs against them.

Austin Barnes - C, LAD vs MIL (DK - $3,300)

With the performance Yasmani Grandal put on last night, he is set to be benched today, which means Barnes will get the start. The Dodgers are down a game and if you are believing they can come back, they will need some offense tonight. Barnes will be a cheaper option to get you some exposure to their lineup tonight.

Lorenzo Cain - OF, MIL @ LAD (FD - $4,500)

Cain has a .422 wOBA and a .155 ISO this season vs left-handed pitchers this season. He is up against Rich Hill, who is giving up 1.26 HR/9 to righties this season, which could present a bit of an opening for Cain and the Brewers.

Steve Pearce - 1B, BOS @ HOU (DK - $4,200)

Pearce vs left-handed pitchers is when you want to be rostering him, so tonight is this spot. He has a .407 wOBA and a .255 ISO vs lefties and will have the platoon advantage against Keuchel tonight. A Red Sox stack is always in play and he should be a key part of that.
