We have a monster 12-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.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 7/3/18. 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 @DFS_Tom.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Anthony DeSclafani - P, CIN vs CWS (DK - $7,600)

DeSclafani comes in on the cheaper side and has a very favorable matchup in front of him tonight. He is up against the White Sox, who have a 25.1% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is fourth worst on the slate. Over his last four starts, he has posted 14.7 DraftKings points or more in all of them, making him a very solid point per dollar play over that span. The White Sox have a team wOBA sitting at .306 vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is seventh worst in the league. Some slight risk with the park factor here, but a solid matchup.

Zack Greinke - P, ARI vs STL (DK - $10,900)

Grienke has six or more strikeouts in three of his last four games and is now up against the Cardinals who have a 23% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers. Grienke has allowed only three runs in his last three games, but they all came in one start, so he has two starts with no earned runs. He has a 12% swinging strike rate this season and a 5% walk rate, with only two walks in his last three starts.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

Joey Votto - 1B, CIN vs CWS (DK - $5,000)

Votto is one of the more expensive hitters on today's slate, but you want to try and get him in your lineups. He is facing off against Lucas Giolito, who is giving up a .397 wOBA to lefties this season along with 1.49 HR/9. Votto has a .412 wOBA vs RHP and a super low 12% strikeout rate.

Cesar Hernández - 2B, PHI vs BAL (DK - $4,700)

Hernandez and the Phillies should be a top target for offense tonight since they come in with an implied run total sitting at 4.99. They are facing off against Alex Cobb, who is giving up a .408 wOBA to lefties. Hernandez is in a great spot with his .343 wOBA and .144 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season. Great park factor against a weak pitcher.

Max Muncy 3B, LAD vs PIT (DK - $4,700)

Muncy has a .421 wOBA and a .336 ISO this season vs right-handed pitchers and has shown to be one of the more consistent and powerful hitters as of late. He has three home runs in his last seven games and is now facing off against Ivan Nova, who is giving up a 38% fly ball rate to left-handed hitters.

Andrelton Simmons - SS, LAA @ SEA (DK - $3,900)

Simmons aka the man who doesn't strikeout comes into this game with a .383 wOBA and below average .113 ISO vs left-handed pitchers this season. Simmons and the Angels will have a big-time platoon advantage against Wade LeBlanc, who is giving up over 1.00 HR/9 to right-handed hitters this season.


DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Marwin Gonzalez - OF, HOU @ TEX (DK - $3,300)

Gonzalez has only two hits in his last eight games and with that, we have seen his price drop a good amount. He offers comes good savings on a full slate which is never a bad thing and he gets you some exposure to the Astros offense who come in with an implied run total sitting at 5.72, which is third highest on the slate. A bit of a punt play here.

Rajai Davis - OF, CLE @ KC (DK - $3,300)

Davis is also cheap tonight and should be seeing the starting lineup due to a few injuries the Indians have. He will be facing off against Danny Duffy, who is giving up a .360 wOBA to righties along with 1.95 HR/9, which is absolutley terrible. Davis has some stolen base upside as well, which can help him crush value tonight.
