We have a splits slate of games where the early slate starts at 1 pm, so there will be a few players from each slate. There are some fantastic pitching options on the slate, so you will need to find some value plays out there to fit these aces in your lineups.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 5/10/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me up on Twitter @DFS_Tom.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Walker Buehler - P, LAD vs CIN (FD - $8,600)

Buehler is the exciting young prospect for the Dodgers, who has three starts under his belt this season, all of which have been strong. He comes in with a 29% strikeout rate this season, along with a 65% ground ball rate. He has only given up two earned runs in his three starts, but it should be noted that those three starts were against some of the weaker teams in the league. Today he comes in as a -200 favorite at home against the Reds, who have a 20.5% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers.

Miles Mikolas - P, STL @ SDP (FD - $8,500)

Mikolas aka The Lizard King is on the slate and in a good matchup, so he is certainly worth a look. If you don't know why Mikolas is called the Lizard King, just throw his name into Google and you'll find the answer. He comes in with six strong starts this year and is carrying a super low 1.2% walk rate. He has a great matchup vs the Padres, who have a 27.9% strikeout rate, which is the worst on the slate. Great pitchers park and he isn't too expensive.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Lucas Duda - 1B, KAN @ BAL (FD - $2,500)

Duda is a bit of a cheap option at first base tonight and should be able to slot into any lineup. He is coming off a home run last night, and is in a nice spot to hit another one tonight, as he is up against a true gas can pitcher. Who is that pitcher you ask? Well, it's Chris Tillman, who let me tell you, is straight garbage. He is giving up a .517 wOBA and 2.53 HR/9 to lefties this year. Just play Duda tonight.

Howie Kendrick - 2B, WAS @ SDP (FD - $3,300)

Kendrick has a .364 wOBA and a .196 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, showing he is a bit of a reverse splits guy. He comes into this game with a three-game hitting streak in the works, where two of the games are for multi-hits. He is more of a GPP option on this slate but makes a nice addition to a Nationals stack.

Mike Moustakas - 3B, KAN @ BAL (FD - $4,100)

Generally, I don't try to pile on with too many hitters from the same team when I'm breaking them down, but man, Moustakas is in an amazing spot. As I mentioned above with Duda, they are facing off against Tillman, who is terrible vs left-handed hitters. Moustakas comes in with a .449 wOBA and a .384 IS vs right-handed pitchers. Outside of Arenado and Shaw at Coors, Moustakas is the best third basemen on the slate.

Paul DeJong - SS, STL @ SDP (FD - $3,600)

DeJong is a reverse splits hitter, meaning he is better against right-handed pitchers, as a right-handed hitter, than he is compared to left-hand pitchers. Not the most common, but something to take note of and a good spot for him. He has a .374 wOBA and a .238 ISO vs RHP, but also a 32% strikeout rate. So the power is there, but so are the strikeouts.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Charlie Blackmon - OF, COL vs MIL (FD - $5,000)

Blackmon is the guy you want in your lineups tonight, it's really as simple as that. He comes in with a .416 wOBA and a .343 ISO vs right-handed pitchers, which are simply elite level numbers. Obviously, the park factor is huge here since the Rockies are at home, and should only be beneficial for him as he is up against Chacin, who is giving up a 40% hard contact rate to left-handed hitters.

David Peralta - OF, ARI vs WAS (FD - $3,000)

Peralta seems a bit too cheap tonight, considering he is batting in the leadoff spot most nights. He doesn't ahve have the best matchup, as he is up against Roark, but the upside is there for him due to his price, and if you use him in a Diamondbacks stack, he will likley be lower owned.
