We have a monster 13-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 9/11/18. 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 @DFS_Tom.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Jacob deGrom - P, NYM vs MIA (DK - $13,500)

Will deGrom pitch tonight? Well, that's tough to answer since he has had his starts canceled over the past two days due to the weather. Today, hopefully, he will be up against the Marlins who come in with a 22.5% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers, along with a team wOBA sitting at only .293. deGrom has nine or more strikeouts in three of his last four starts and only given up three earned runs in his last four combined.

Miles Mikolas - P, STL vs PIT (DK - $7,600)

Mikolas isn't a big strikeout pitcher, but he is cheaper and not facing a threatening offense. That offense is the Pirates, who come in with a team wOBA sitting at .310 vs right-handed pitchers this season. He has four starts against the Pirates this season, where he is coming away with an average of 14 DraftKings points. That is a solid amount for a player who should a solid SP2 option today.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

Matt Olson - 1B, OAK @ BAL (DK - $4,600)

Love that the Athletics are getting a massive positive park shift tonight since they are in Baltimore. They should be one of the more popular offenses on the night since they have so much power in their lineup. Olson comes in with a .246 ISO vs RHP and is up against Alex Cobb, who is giving up 1.16 HR/9 to lefties.

Daniel Descalso - 2B, ARI @ COL (DK - $4,700)

Descalso gets an automatic bump since he is at Coors Field for this series. He comes in with .343 wOBA and a .188 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and will have the platoon advantage tonight.

Brandon Phillips - 3B, BOS vs TOR (DK - $3,900)

Phillips is back in the majors and apart of the best offense in the league, the Red Sox. He is somewhat cheap and is up against Ryan Borucki, who is giving up a .334 wOBA to righties and a 37% fly ball rate, which can always lead to home runs.

Asdrubal Cabrera - SS, PHI vs WAS (DK - $4,400)

Cabrera and the Phillies had their game postponed last night, but they will be back in action tonight vs Tanner Roark, who is giving up a .329 wOBA to lefties this season. Cabrera has a .357 wOBA vs right-handed pitchers this season and a .242 ISO.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Khris Davis - OF, OAK @ BAL (DK - $5,400)

Davis is another Athletics' hitter you should want exposure to tonight as he comes in with a .312 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, which brings a level of multi-home run upside you can't find elsewhere. He should be a top target tonight since he is facing Alex Cobb, who is giving up 1.73 HR/9 to righties.

Matt Adams - OF, STL vs PIT (DK - $4,100)

Adams has a .264 wOBA vs right-handed pitchers this season and has two home runs in his last 10-games. Not a ton of consistency from Adams, but as a GPP one-off who has home run upside, he doesn't break the bank.
