We have another big slate, but there is a smaller early slate, as well. This article will use picks from both slates, as there are enough games to comfortably make lineups. 

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 5/24/17. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays on DraftKings.

You can read our FanDuel and Yahoo DFS lineup picks as well. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @BalesSJustin.

DFS Lineup Stacks to Target on DraftKings

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Jose Quintana 

The Diamondbacks continue to make an elite stack at home, and tonight will be no different. They could potential be a bit under-owned because of the matchup, but Quintana has struggled a bit with a 3.92 ERA this season. Arizona is currently a -113 favorite in a game set at 9.5 runs, and they're an elite stacking option on this slate.

New York Yankees vs Jason Hammel 

The Yankees have been one of the best offenses in the MLB this season, and they have been a more consistent and more powerful offense in New York. They're averaging two home runs per game at home this season, and they get a great matchup against Hammel, who enters this game with a 6.20 ERA. The Yankees are -183 favorites in a game set at 8.5 runs, and they're a top stacking option tonight.

 

DFS Starting Pitchers to Consider on DraftKings

Chris Sale - vs TEX ($13,500)

Sale has been arguably the best fantasy pitcher in the MLB this season, as he has a 4-2 record with a 2.19 ERA and 13.0 K/9 through nine starts. He has been a slightly better pitcher at home, and he gets a decent matchup against the Rangers. Sale is currently a massive -255 favorite in a game set at 8.5 runs, and he can safely be used in all leagues tonight.

Randall Delgado - vs CWS ($4,000)

Delgado isn't an elite pitcher, but it's impossible to ignore him for his low price tag. He will be making his first start of the season today, but he enters this game with a 1-0 record, 4.05 ERA, and 8.1 K/9. He's a -113 favorite, although the game is set at 9.5 runs. He has proven that he can throw well when given the time, and he's a high upside salary relief option today.

 

DFS Infielders to Consider on DraftKings

Catcher (C)

Yasmani Grandal - vs STL ($3,600)

Grandal hasn't displayed home run power over his last 10 games, but he's hitting over .450 with nearly 10 doubles over that span. He gets a good matchup against Mike Leake, and Grandal has been a consistent option with great upside, as well. He can be used in all leagues tonight.

First Base (1B)

Joey Votto - at CLE ($5,200)

Votto has been a better hitter at home this season, but he has also found success on the road, as well. He's hitting around .300 with good power over his last 10 games, and he gets a good matchup against Trevor Bauer tonight. He isn't going to come cheap, but Votto has been playing more than well enough to be used in all leagues.

Second Base (2B)

Ian Happ - vs SF ($4,100)

Happ has only played in limited games this season, but he has made an elite option during that time. He's hitting over .350 with great power and solid speed. He gets a great matchup against Matt Moore, and Happ has hit left-handed pitching well. He's still too cheap for his recent production, and he can be used in all leagues.

Shortstop (SS)

Nick Ahmed - vs CWS ($3,300)

Ahmed has been playing well recently, and he's a cheap way to get part of a Diamondbacks stack. He is expected to hit second in the lineup today, and he's hitting nearly .300 with great power over his last 10 games. He has hit left-handed pitching well throughout his career, and he's a great option in all leagues.

Third Base (3B)

Derek Dietrich - at OAK ($2,900)

Dietrich has struggled at home this season, but he's hitting over .300 on the road this season. He gets a solid matchup against Sonny Gray, and Dietrich is still a cheap option. He isn't safe enough for cash games, but he can be used in tournaments today.

 

DFS Outfielders to Consider on DraftKings

Aaron Judge - vs KC ($5,000)

Judge has been enjoying an elite season, as he has an OPS over 1.100 through 40 games. He's hitting well over .350 with double digit home runs in New York, and he gets a great matchup against Jason Hammel tonight. Judge is a crucial part of a Yankees stack tonight, and he can safely be used in all leagues.

John Jaso - at ATL ($3,000)

Jaso has struggled quite a bit this season, but he's hitting over .300 with good power over his last 10 games. He has been a better hitter away from home this season, and he gets a solid matchup against Julio Teheran. Jaso is still extremely cheap, and he's a great salary relief option in all leagues.
