DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/20/18): MLB DFS Lineups

There are 14 games today, but once again they are broken down into two seven games slates. This article will be focused around the later slate, which has been labeled as the "featured" slate.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 6/20/18. 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 @BalesSJustin.

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.
