DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Vince Velasquez, PHI (vs MIA) - $8,200

Velasquez's main selling point is his outstanding 26.0% K-rate, which can net you a ton of points on any given night. His 4.30 ERA is rough, but Velasquez's 3.71 FIP paints a better picture. He's got a cakewalk matchup against the Marlins, who are the second-worst lineup in baseball against righties with a .290 wOBA. VV is a nice bargain at this price.

Madison Bumgarner, SF (vs COL) - $9,200

Bumgarner has gotten rocked in each of his last two starts, but those came in tough matchups at Milwaukee and at Colorado. He gets an easy opponent facing the Rockies at home, as they have a poor .296 wOBA when they're not in Coors Field. San Francisco is home to a pitcher-friendly park where Bumgarner can provide value for you at his price.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

C - Wilson Ramos, PHI (vs MIA) - $4,200

Ramos is pretty much the only catcher I'm willing to pay for on Saturday. He's got incredible numbers over the last month, batting .404 with a 1.060 OPS, and will be playing in an extreme hitter's park in Philly. Ramos's 139 wRC+ is among the best in the game at catcher, and he has an excellent matchup against Elizer Hernandez, owner of a 5.25 ERA.

1B - Josh Bell, PIT (@ MIL) - $4,100

Bell is in an awesome spot batting third for the Pirates, where he can rack up runs and RBI in one of the best hitter's parks in Milwaukee. Bell has posted a .988 OPS over the last 15 days and faces a weak pitcher in Zach Davies, who has just a 17.4% K-rate and a 4.91 FIP.

2B - Ian Kinsler, BOS (vs NYM) - $4,100

The Red Sox lineup is in line for a huge day against Corey Oswalt, who has a 6.62 ERA this season. Fenway Park is an ideal spot to grab hitters, and pairing Kinsler with teammates like Mitch Moreland and Rafael Devers will likely be an effective stack.

3B - Mike Moustakas, MIL (vs PIT) - $4,100

Moose is coming off of a big Friday night where he went 3-for-4 with a homer. He should see plenty of RBI opportunities in the explosive Brewers lineup against Ivan Nova, who has a 4.55 FIP with a low 16.9% K-rate.

SS - Jose Peraza, CIN (@ CHC) - $4,300

Peraza has been flexing his power again with homers in back-to-back games - it's a nice bonus to go with his 22 steals on the year. Peraza's power/speed combo has been on display in the last month with five homers and four steals, as well as a .336 batting average. It's surprising that he's not more expensive, especially since he's facing a lefty, who he has been better against this season.

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Adam Eaton, WSH (@ ATL) - $4,300

Eaton will be able to maximize his plate appearances out of the Nationals leadoff spot, where he will get lots of opportunities to get on base and score. SunTrust Park is great for hitters and Julio Teheran has a 4.84 FIP. 

Nelson Cruz, SEA (@ LAA) - $4,300

Cruz feasts on left-handed pitching, as he has a 158 wRC+ against southpaws in 2018. He can do some damage out of the Mariners cleanup spot.

Cedric Mullins, BAL (vs CWS) - $4,000

Mullins is another leadoff hitter we can take advantage of atop the Orioles lineup. He gets to face Reynaldo Lopez, who has a 5.01 SIERA.
