DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Charlie Morton - P, vs TB ($12,200)

Morton has looked outstanding in Houston this season, posting a 5-1 record with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP through eight home starts. He also owns a 1.5 HR/9 with a 12.1 K/9 through 49 innings in Houston, as well. He gets a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays, and Morton is a -250 favorite in a game set at 8 runs. He can safely be used in all leagues tonight.

Chad Kuhl - P, vs MIL ($7,200)

Kuhl has been throwing well this season, and he has been heating up over his last nine starts. Over that span, he owns a 2-3 record with a 3.33 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has also featured a 1.6 HR/9 to go along with an 8.8 K/9 over his last 51.1 innings. He gets a matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers, who strikeout at one of the highest rates on the slate. Kuhl is a small underdog, but he can be considered in all leagues for his current price tag.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

Dominic Smith - 1B, at COL ($4,000)

Smith has been hitting better than his numbers suggest, as he owns a 66% hard-hit rate with a 96 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He's a powerful player that has been at his best in the MLB against right-handed pitching. He'll get an added boost from playing in Coors tonight, and Smith is a high upside tournament option on this slate.

Jonathan Schoop - 2B, at WAS ($3,300)

Schoop has struggled quite a bit this season, but he has been a more consistent and more powerful option on the road. He also owns 0.056 wOBA and 0.029 ISO differentials against left-handed pitching. He gets a tough matchup against Gio Gonzalez, but Schoop is a solid salary relief option that can be considered in tournaments.

Wilmer Flores - 3B, at COL ($4,200)

Flores has been heating up a bit recently, hitting .286 with a .429 slugging percentage and a .772 OPS over his last 10 games. He has been a fairly consistent option over that span, and Flores owns 62% hard-hit and fly ball rates over the last 15 days. He also has posted a 94 mph exit velocity over that span. He'll be playing in Coors tonight, and Flores can be used in all leagues.

Raul Mondesi - SS, vs TEX ($3,200)

Mondesi has only played in a couple of games this season, but he owns a 60% hard-hit rate with a 99 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He is a high upside option for a low price tag, although he's hitting last in the Royals lineup. He's a salary relief option that can be considered in all leagues.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Aaron Judge - OF, vs SEA ($5,500)

Judge has looked outstanding at home this season, posting a .354 average with a .715 slugging percentage and a 1.203 OPS through 37 games. He is also at his best against right-handed pitching, boasting 0.082 wOBA and 0.177 ISO differentials against righties. He gets a good matchup against Felix Hernandez, who has struggled on the road this season, and Judge is an elite option.

Shin-Soo Choo - OF, at KC ($4,900)

Choo has caught fire over the last 10 games, recording a .389 average with a .694 slugging percentage and a 1.245 OPS over that span. He has scored 20+ fantasy points in three of his last 10 games, and Choo is a more powerful hitter against right-handed pitching. He gets a good matchup against Jakob Junis, and Choo has been playing well enough to be used in all leagues.
