DraftKings DFS Players

SP Walker Buehler, LAD ($16,000)

There are a lot of different pitching options to choose from tonight, as just about every pitcher on each roster is available to enter the game. I'm still confident in Buehler since he went seven innings in Game 3, which gives me confidence that the Dodgers are comfortable riding him deeper into this game. Obviously Buehler is the most expensive player, but he's such a strong bet to net you some points that it's worth building your lineup around him.

OF Joc Pederson, LAD ($8,600)

It's so important to maximize the amount of plate appearances your lineup will see when there's only one game to choose from. As the Dodgers leadoff man, Pederson will get plenty of chances to produce and score runs. Joc crushed right-handed pitching in the regular season with a 139 wRC+.

1B/OF Cody Bellinger, LAD ($7,800)

Dodger bats are clearly the favorable move, as they face a much weaker starting pitcher in Jhoulys Chacin, who posted a weak 4.51 Deserved Run Average this year. Bellinger has lots of power upside in an extreme hitter's park in Milwaukee.

OF Yasiel Puig, LAD ($6,900)

While he's batting lower in the Dodgers order, Puig can still give you a huge night. He obliterated righties with a 150 wRC+ and comes at an affordable price.

OF Lorenzo Cain, MIL ($6,000)

Cain is the best value you can get from the Brewers lineup as a super cheap leadoff hitter. He will get plate appearances and can also score you points on the basepaths, after swiping 30 bags this season.

RP Josh Hader, MIL ($3,600)

The Brewers are almost certain to use Hader in this game with the World Series on the line. Hader was arguably the best reliever in baseball this season with his absurd 46.7% K-rate and can give you multiple innings. Hader will also save you a ton of payroll that you can spend elsewhere.
