There are plenty of games today, although it is broken into two slates. The early slate is extremely small, though, so this article is going to focus on the later slate, which features 11 games.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 7/11/18. 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

Jacob deGrom - P, vs PHI ($12,000)

deGrom has been enjoying an elite season, posting a 5-4 record with a 1.80 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP through 18 starts. He also owns an 11.1 K/9 with a 0.5 HR/9 through 115.1 innings. He gets a solid matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies, who have struggled at times this season. deGrom is a -155 favorite in a game set at 7 runs, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.

Kenta Maeda - P, at SD ($9,300)

Maeda is in the midst of a dominant season, especially over his last nine starts. In those games, he has posted a 3-3 record with a 2.74 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. He also owns a 10.4 K/9 with a 0.6 HR/9 over that span. He gets an elite matchup against the San Diego Padres, and Maeda is a -149 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs. He's a solid option in all leagues tonight.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

Omar Narvaez - C, vs STL ($2,800)

Narvaez has been playing at an elite level recently, hitting .448 with a .621 slugging percentage and a 1.105 OPS over his last 10 games. He has also been a more powerful and a more consistent option at home this season. Narvaez is also a significantly better option against right-handed pitching, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.

Justin Smoak - 1B, at ATL ($4,000)

Smoak is another player that has been playing at a high level over his last 10 games. Over that span, he's hitting .310 with six extra-base hits (three home runs) and eight RBIs. He gets a great matchup against Max Fried in a fairly hitter friendly stadium, as well. Smoak has been playing well enough to be considered in all leagues tonight.

Carlos Asuaje - 2B, vs LAD ($2,900)

Asuaje has been heating up recently, posting a 42% hard-hit rate and a 96 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He's also a significantly better option against right-handed pitching, featuring 0.111 wOBA and 0.071 ISO differentials against righties. Most importantly, Asuaje is expected to hit second in the Padres lineup, and it's rare to find a salary relief option hitting that high in the lineup.

Justin Turner - 3B, at SD ($3,700)

Turner is a dominant option against left-handed pitching, and he gets a good matchup against Joey Lucchesi tonight. Turner has also been playing well over his last 10 games, posting a .324 average with a .441 slugging percentage and an .836 OPS over that span. He's a safe option that comes with tremendous upside, as well.

Lourdes Gurriel - SS, at ATL ($3,200)

Gurriel hasn't been a great player recently, but he has scored fantasy points in each of his last six games. Over that span, he's averaging 9.2 fantasy points per game. He still comes with a cheap price tag, and he's hitting in an offense that comes with quite a bit of upside. He's a great salary relief option on this slate.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Aaron Judge - OF, at BAL ($5,500)

Judge has caught fire over his last 10 games, posting a .317 average with a .610 slugging percentage and a 1.038 OPS over that span. He has also scored double digit fantasy points in seven of his last nine games. He also owns 0.056 wOBA and 0.123 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching. Judge can be used in all leagues.

Gerardo Parra - OF, vs ARI ($3,900)

Parra is surprisingly cheap for a player that is playing in Coors. He has looked decent over his last 10 games, although he has struggled with power over that span. Still, he owns 0.097 wOBA and 0.1 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching, and he gets a good matchup against Shelby Miller tonight. Parra is a player that is best suited for tournaments, though.
