We have plenty of games once again today, and they are broken down into two slates. We'll be focusing around the later slate, which features 10 games, and plenty of options on all levels of the price range.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 8/22/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Noah Syndergaard - P, vs SF ($10,200)

Syndergaard has been struggling a bit, but we now get him at a discounted price tag. He has found plenty of success at home this season, recording a 5-1 record with a 3.38 ERA through nine starts in New York. Syndergaard also gets a solid matchup against the San Francisco Giants, who strikeout at a relatively high rate for this slate. He's a -160 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs, and he can be considered in all leagues tonight.

Jon Gray - P, vs SD ($7,800)

Gray has been getting unlucky this season, as his 3.08 xFIP and 3.32 SIERA do not match his 4.76 ERA this season. He has been heating up recently, though, scoring 23+ fantasy points in five of his last six starts. He gets a great matchup against the San Diego Padres, who strikeout at the highest rate on the slate. Gray is a -236 favorite in a game set at 10.5 runs, and he can be used in all leagues tonight.

Mitch Moreland - 1B, vs CLE ($3,900)

Similarly to the rest of the Boston offense, Moreland has been a better option at home this season. Through 48 home games, he's hitting .279 with a .503 slugging percentage and an .847 OPS. Moreland also possesses 0.046 wOBA and 0.101 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching, and he gets a solid matchup against Carlos Carrasco tonight. Moreland is a high upside option.

He is also averaging 13.1 fantasy points per game over that span. He gets a great matchup against Trevor Richards, and Andujar has been playing well enough to be used in all leagues.

Iglesias has been a dominant option against left-handed pitching, as he features 0.082 wOBA and 0.085 ISO differentials against lefties.
