DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Lance McCullers, Jr., HOU (vs. KC) - $10,200

McCullers has lots of upside at this price, as his 24.9% K-rate can rack up a ton of fantasy points. McCullers has a strong 3.43 Deserved Run Average this season and gets to face one of the worst lineups in the league against righties in the Royals. Kansas City has just a .293 wOBA versus righties, ranking them 27th. The Astros lineup should have no problem getting McCullers the win against Ian Kennedy. McCullers is worth considering in all formats.

Andrew Suarez, SF (vs. SD) - $7,900

Suarez has pitched better than his ERA would suggest, as he's got a 3.59 FIP and a 3.46 SIERA this season. He's able to limit baserunners with just a 4.9% walk-rate while still striking out batters at a 23.5% clip. Suarez has an awesome matchup against the Padres, who have a .296 wOBA versus left-handed pitching. Their 25.2% K-rate is third-highest in the league against southpaws. Suarez also gets to face them at home in one of the best pitching environments in baseball. He's a steal at this price.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

C - Yadier Molina, STL (at MIL) - $3,800

Molina is extremely hot entering Saturday, with a .956 OPS over the last 15 days. Molina has put up some great power numbers this year, posting nine homers in just 182 plate appearances. He gets to play in one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the league in Milwaukee, and can post some RBIs batting fifth for the Cardinals.

1B - Jose Abreu, CWS (vs. OAK) - $4,100

A's starter Daniel Mengden has been hit hard by regression over his last three starts, allowing four or more earned runs in each start. As the White Sox three-hitter, Abreu is in a position for both runs and RBIs if the White Sox continue this trend. Abreu has a .341 wOBA this year, so he can get it done by himself if he needs to, which makes him a nice cash game play.

2B - Starlin Castro, MIA (at COL) - $4,000

Castro is one of the cheapest hitters you can find at Coors Field. Even in the desolate Marlins lineup he can produce well in the best offensive environment in the majors. He'll be leading off for the Marlins against a lefty, which will maximize his plate appearances.

3B - Rafael Devers, BOS (vs. SEA) - $4,200

Devers has reclaimed lots of his fantasy value over the last two weeks with three homers and three steals while batting .281. Mike Leake got rocked by the Red Sox in his last start, and this one won't be any easier for him in Fenway Park.

SS - Elvis Andrus, TEX (@ MIN) - $4,000

Andrus will bat second for the Rangers against Jake Odorizzi, owner of a 4.96 FIP. He hasn't done much since returning from the disabled list, but he's still worth considering at this price. Try pairing him with a few Rangers teammates for a Rangers mini-stack, or play Andrus as a standalone for his high floor.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Dustin Fowler, OAK (@ CWS) - $3,900

Fowler is one of the cheapest leadoff hitters you will be able to find on Saturday. He's got a sneaky power/speed combo with four homers and four steals this year, giving him a very high ceiling. Fowler is worth a look in tournament games.

Jason Heyward, CHC (at CIN) - $4,100

Heyward has lots of value as the two-hitter in one of the league's most explosive lineups. He's facing Anthony DeSclafani, owner of a 4.60 ERA, in an extreme hitter's ballpark.

Teoscar Hernandez, TOR (at LAA) - $4,100

Hernandez has been a beast in the last month, batting .267 with an .868 OPS and five homers. Angels starter Jaime Barria gave up six runs his last time out and has a 4.62 FIP on the year.
