DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (9/28/19): MLB DFS Lineups

The final Saturday of the regular season is upon us! It does not feel that long ago that we were starting our DFS seasons, and now we onto my last regular-season article of 2019. To finish us off we were supposed to have a 10-game featured slate, but the schedule change with the White Sox and Tigers game has left it as a still reasonably big nine-game slate.

The Astros and Cardinals are the two biggest favorites on the slates, as both play meaningful games against opponents with nothing but pride to play for. Only the games in Texas and Colorado have a total over 10 today, but with the majority of hitters in those priced accordingly, we will mostly look to the collection of games projected to have around nine runs in them for the majority of our hitting options today

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/28/19. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. Be sure to also check out all the Vegas Odds for today's slate. 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 @benrolfe15.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Justin Verlander, HOU (@ LAA) - $12,800

If you can fit him in then don't overthink this. Verlander is averaging over 30 fantasy points per game in his last 10 outings and has only been below 20 points once in the last seven. The Angels have nothing to play for and Verlander is having his final tune-up ready for the playoffs next week. With a decent break before he next sees the mound there should be no reason he is pulled early either.

Steven Matz, NYM (vs. ATL) - $7,900 

It has been a couple of rough starts for Matz but he should be a solid option this time out. The Braves are easing into the playoffs with nothing left to play for and it should provide an opportunity for Matz to have another solid out. Prior to his last two starts, he had averaged 19.43 points in his previous four starts. If he can get back to that form then he could set you up for a really nice day at this price.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

C - Robinson Chirinos, HOU (@ LAA) - $4,200

With the White Sox Tigers game coming off the slate the catching options are either expensive or unexciting. I settled for a mid-priced Chirinos, who is hitting .270 this month and .262 in the second half. Chirinos has also hit .277 with a .390 wOBA against left-handed pitchers

1B - Matt Olson, OAK (@ SEA) - $4,100 

Olson is hitting .286 in the second half of the season and has a solid .261 ISO against left-handed hitters. He also has a very impressive .349 ISO on the road this year.

2B - Jose Altuve, HOU (@ LAA) - $4,700 

Altuve has rocked this year against left-handed pitchers, with a .320 batting average, .328 ISO and a .415 wOBA. He has also had a strong second half, hitting .320 with 20 home runs.

3B - Matt Chapman, OAK (@ SEA) - $4,000

With Chapman, it is all about power, as he has a .285 ISO against left-handed pitchers this season. Although those numbers are reinforced with a more than solid .349 wOBA and a 121 wRC+.

SS - Manny Machado, SD (@ ARI) - $3,800

Machado has not been good in general this season, but he has at least been solid against left-handed pitchers. Entering the penultimate day of the season he has a .315 batting average, .355 ISO and a ,436 wOBA.


DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Michael Conforto, NYM (vs. ATL) - $4,300

I like this matchup for Conforto, who has hit 27 of his 33 home runs off of right-handed hitters, has a .263 batting average, a .285 ISO and a .382 wOBA.

Austin Riley, ATL (@ NYM) - $3,900

I am hoping to see Riley back in the lineup today for a favorable matchup with left-handed pitcher Steven Matz. Riley has a .262 batting average, .385 ISO and a .382 wOBA when facing lefties this season.

Jose Martinez, STL (vs. CHC) - $3,800

Another player with good numbers against lefties this season is Martinez, who has a .329 batting average, with a .271 ISO and a .414 wOBA.
