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


The ALCS remains alive thanks to a first-innings explosion from the Yankees offense against Justin Verlander last night. Now the teams head back to Houston for Game 6 as the Astros look to clinch the series without having to put their other ace, Gerrit Cole, on the mound again.

This game could be very entertaining. Both teams rotations have been stretched to breaking point and we are now going to see the weakest part of the units for both sides. That should make a fun, offense-laden game as the Yankees look to keep the series alive in Houston for at least one more day.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 10/19/19. 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

Gary Sanchez, NYY (@ HOU) - $10,800

The strategy here is to save some cash at the captain spot and then load the lineup with upside in the flex. That left two options with good numbers against the opposing handed pitcher. Brett Gardner has solid numbers against right-handed pitchers, but I am going to go for Gary Sanchez to break his slump against the worst pitcher he has faced in this series. Against righties, Sanchez has a .243 batting average, a strikeout rate 11% lower than against lefties, a .302 ISO, and a .357 wOBA.

 

DraftKings DFS Utility Selections

Alex Bregman, HOU (vs. NYY) - $10,800

Bregman has had a great season, but his numbers against lefties are extremely impressive. He has a .350 batting average, .393 ISO, .473 wOBA and a 205 wRC+. He will likely face right-handed pitcher Chad Green once, but in his second and third PA which should come against J.A. Happ will give him the chance to explode for your squad.

Jose Altuve, HOU (vs. NYY) - $10,200 

Altuve is another Astros hitter with super numbers against lefties. He had a .331 batting average, .346 ISO and a .429 wOBA. Again he will face Green the first time up, but his numbers against righties are solid enough that he could even add points there as well.

Carlos Correa, HOU (vs. NYY) - $8,400

Correa has solid numbers against pitchers of both hands, but he should be one of the first to see Happ on the mound, so his numbers against lefties are worth a look. He has a .308 batting average, .405 wOBA and 160 wRC+ against lefties. His only slight downside against lefties is his .231 ISO, which is lower than against righties, but still a very positive number for a hitter who had 10 home runs in 107 PA in the second half of the season and has two home runs already in the postseason.

Robinson Chirinos, HOU (@ NYY) - $5,000

I have used Chirinos a lot in these playoffs because he has a solid amount of upside. However, he also has some safety against lefties, with a .274 batting average and a .389 wOBA. Additionally, he has also been better at home this season, with a .273 batting average, .256 ISO and a .383 wOBA.

Jake Marisnick, HOU (vs. NYY) - $4,400

Marisnick is my compromise to load the top part of my order. He has hit .333 in these playoffs and has a .301 wOBA and a .196 ISO against lef-handed pitchers this season. Anything you get from Marisnick is a bonus, but it allows you to load up on the big Astro bats further up the price range.
