We have a monster 14-game slate to break down today, and there are some great options across the board. There are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate you should be looking to pay up for, along with plenty of bats you want to jam into your lineups.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Luis Severino – P, NYY @ PHI (DK - $13,100)

Severino is up against the Phillies who have a 26.3% strikeout rate this season vs right-handed pitchers, which is dead last in the league. This presents plenty of upside for Severino, who has posted seven or more strikeouts in seven of his last 10 starts. He has allowed only three earned runs or more in two of his last 10 starts. Great consistency from him, which should make him one of the top overall pitching options on the slate and great for cash games. He a .252 wOBA or lower to both lefties and righties this season, which are elite level numbers, putting him among the best pitchers in the league.

Tyson Ross – P, SD @ TEX (DK - $8,500)

Ross should make a popular pick as an SP2 tonight since he is up against the Rangers, who have a 25.5% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers, which is third worst in the league. Ross has posted 11 DraftKings points or more in four straight starts, which isn’t super high, but he is up against this Rangers team who has a team wOBA sitting at .306 vs right-handed pitchers. He is more of a GPP option compared to cash games since this is a big-time negative park shift for him since this game is in Texas. Strikeout upside is there but hasn’t shown a big-time game in a while.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

Freddie Freeman – 1B, ATL vs CIN (DK - $5,500)

Freeman is one of the most expensive hitters on the slate, but oh man, he is one of the players you absolutely want exposure to today. He is in a dream spot vs Matt Harvey, who is giving up a .386 wOBA to lefties along with 2.30 HR/9. Yikes, those are some seriously rough numbers for Harvey, which should put Free Money Freeman in a spot to have a huge night. Cash game lock of the night.

DJ LeMahieu – 2B, COL @ SFG (DK - $4,300)

This is a massive negative park shift for LeMahieu and the Rockies, as they are away from Coors and now in San Francisco. But, with that said, I really do like LeMahieu today, especially as a one-off in tournaments. There is some risk with rostering him since this is a massive pitcher’s park, but he still has fantastic numbers vs left-handed pitchers while on the road this season. He has a .566 wOBA and a .500 ISO vs LHP away from Coors. Those are some serious numbers, which you should be looking at tonight.

Travis Shaw – 3B, MIL vs KC (DK - $4,400)

Shaw left Sunday’s game early with a slight injury, but if he is able to go today, he is in a great spot. He is facing off against Jakob Junis, who is giving up a .318 wOBA to lefties this season, along with 1.35 HR/9. Those are some rough numbers to have going into a very hitter-friendly park, against a team with a number of lefty power bats.

Marcus Semien – SS, OAK @ DET (DK - $4,100)

Semien comes into this game with a very modest .296 wOBA vs left-handed pitchers but has a .184 ISO. This means the consistency might not be there, but the power upside is. He is facing off against Blaine Hardy, who is giving up a 40% fly ball rate to righties, along with a 33% hard contact rate. This can line up nicely for Semien, who is getting a nice positive park shift being away from Oakland.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Scott Schebler – OF, CIN @ ATL (DK - $4,100)

Schebler is facing off against Anibal Sanchez, who is giving up a 48% fly ball rate over the past 15 days. That can lead to plenty of home runs and in this favorable hitter’s park, we could see plenty in store for the Reds. Schebler has a .345 wOBA and a .212 ISO this season vs right-handed pitchers, which puts him in a great spot for some power tonight.

Kike Hernandez - OF, LAD vs CHC (DK - $3,500)

Hernandez is facing off against Jon Lester, who he has some nice success against in his career. He has a .489 wOBA vs two home runs in 16 career at-bats. Some decent numbers and if you are a believer in BvP, then this is a decent spot. Hernandez is a bit of a cheaper option and oftens bats lead off for the Dodgers.
