We have a monster 14-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 9/18/18. 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

Corey Kluber - P, CLE vs CWS (DK - $10,600)

Kluber is facing off against the White Sox, who come in with a 25.4% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is second worst in the entire league. Kluber has allowed one or no earned runs in two of his last four starts but allowed four or more earned runs in the other two starts. A slight bit of inconsistency from him, but putting up eight or more strikeouts in two of his last four starts is the level you want to be chasing tonight.

Blake Snell - P, TB @ TEX (DK - $12,100)

Snell is a flat out CY Young candidate this season and makes a great tournament play tonight. He has a negative park shift for him, but he is up against the Rangers, who have a 23% strikeout rate vs left-handed pitchers this season. Snell has nine strikeouts in three straight starts while allowing a total of four earned runs.

 

DraftKings DFS Infielders

Justin Smoak 1B, TOR @ BAL (DK - $4,300)

The Smoak comes in with a .376 wOBA and a .259 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and is now up against Dylan Bundy, who is giving up 2.10 HR/9 to lefties this season. He has eight hits in his last 10 games, which isn’t great but in a great hitter’s park tonight to get back on track.

Travis Shaw - 2B, MIL vs CIN (DK - $4,600)

Shaw has a massive .291 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and is always in play at home, due to the positive park factor. He is up against Michael Lorenzen, who is giving up a .351 wOBA to lefties this season.

Matt Chapman - 3B, OAK vs LAA (DK - $4,200)

Chapman has six doubles in his last 10 games, along with 10 RBIs. Great production from him, which should continue tonight, as he comes in with .365 wOBA and a .171 ISO vs left-handed pitchers this season.

Asdrubal Cabrera - SS, PHI vs NYM (DK - $4,300)

Cabrera is up against Steven Matz, who is giving up a .324 wOBA and 1.78 HR/9 to right-handed hitters this season. Cabrera has nine hits in his last 10 games, with four of them being doubles and one home run.

 

DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Trey Mancini - OF, BAL vs TOR (DK - $3,700)

Mancini has a .195 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season and will now be facing off against Aaron Sanchez, who has given up three or more earned runs in three of his last four starts. Solid hitter’s park here, should make the Orioles an interesting stacking option tonight.

Kevin Kiermaier - OF, TB @TEX (DK - $5,100)

Kiermaier and the Rays are getting a massive positive park shift tonight, since they are away from home and in Texas, so a nice spot to target some of their hitters. He comes in with .175 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, which should line up nicely vs Yovani Gallardo, who is giving up 1.31 HR/9 to lefties this season.
