DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (9/19/18): MLB DFS Lineups

As is the case most Wednesdays, we have games that are broken down into two slates. There is a smaller early slate with a 10 game late (main) slate. The larger later slate is the one we will be focusing on here.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/19/18. 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 @BalesSJustin.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Walker Buehler - P, vs COL ($11,300)

Buehler has caught fire over his last 10 starts, recording a 3-3 record with a 2.35 ERA over that span. He has also scored 27+ fantasy points in four of his last six starts. Buehler has been a significantly better option in Los Angeles, and he gets a matchup against the Colorado Rockies, who have struggled at times on the road this season. Buehler is a -204 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs tonight, as well.

Robbie Erlin - P, vs SF ($4,600)

Erlin has struggled quite a bit this season, but he ha found success in San Diego. Through 18 home games (four starts), he owns an 0-3 record with a 2.80 ERA. He's coming off of an 18.4 fantasy point performance against the Texas Rangers, and he gets a solid matchup against the San Francisco Giants tonight. Erlin is also a -142 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs, and he barely needs any fantasy points to his value at his current price tag.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

Ryan O'Hearn - 1B, at PIT ($4,100)

O'Hearn has caught fire for Kansas City recently, as he's hitting .333 with a .697 slugging percentage and a 1.160 OPS over his last 10 games. He has also posted 41% hard-hit and 37% fly ball rates with a 93 mph exit velocity over that span. O'Hearn has been an elite option against right-handed pitching, as well, owning 0.32 wOBA and 0.243 ISO differentials against righties.

Cory Spangenberg - 2B, vs SF ($3,200)

Spangenberg has been ice cold recently, but he has performed well at home this season. Through 48 games in San Diego, he's hitting .257 with a .478 slugging percentage and an .811 OPS. He gets a solid matchup against Chris Stratton tonight, and Spangenberg has been a significantly more consistent option against right-handed pitching.

Matt Chapman - 3B, vs LAA ($4,400)

Chapman is hitting second in the Oakland A's offense. This gives him plenty of at-bats to find success, which has been the case recently. Over his last 10 games, he's hitting .293 with seven extra-base hits and 10 RBIs. Chapman gets a solid matchup against Felix Pena, and he makes a consistent option tonight.

Nick Ahmed - SS, vs CHC ($4,100)

Ahmed is a player that can always be considered against left-handed pitching, as he owns 0.052 wOBA and 0.09 ISO differentials against lefties. His recent numbers don't pop off the page, but he owns 45% hard-hit and 34% fly ball rates with a 93 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He gets a tough matchup against Cole Hamels, but Ahmed comes with quite a bit of upside.


DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Curtis Granderson - OF, vs CIN ($4,800)

Granderson has been playing well recently, as he's hitting .316 with a .737 slugging percentage and a 1.255 OPS over his last 10 games. He gets a great matchup against Matt Harvey, and Granderson owns 0.142 wOBA and 0.139 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching. He's also leading off for one of the top projected offenses on the slate.

Alex Gordon - OF, at PIT ($3,900)

Gordon continues to play at a high level. He's averaging 10.2 fantasy points per game over his last 10 games, as he's hitting .306 with five extra-base hits, nine RBIs, and three steals over that span. He gets a solid matchup against Chris Archer, who has struggled at times against left-handed batters. Gordon is one of the safest options on the slate, but also comes with quite a bit of upside.
