Tonight, we have a big 11-game slate starting at 7 pm EDT on DraftKings for DFS. With so many players to choose from, I like to look for a few bargains about $4,000 and under, aside from pitchers, so I can afford to get some big guys in there. You don’t have to use all of these players in your lineup but mixing them in gives you more salary flexibility while possibly getting you a great ROI. Let’s get down to the 10 I like for this evening in DFS.
Be sure to check us out daily for our DFS content.
On the Mound
Sandy Alcantara @ Washington Nationals ($9,400)
Aside from his first outing of the year when his control was iffy, Alcantara has been great. In his last two starts, the Miami right-hander has an 11/2 K/BB rate and has given up just two runs in 14.1 innings. You can count on Alcantara to go deep into games as well as he has thrown 95 + pitches in each of his last two starts and pitched eight innings most recently against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Tony Gonsolin @Arizona Diamondbacks ($8,200)
His ERA on the year is a nice 0.69. While that is in only 13 innings across three starts, Gonsolin has worked his way up as far as pitch count goes. Last Wednesday, the Dodgers righty tossed six innings of one-hit ball against the Braves. The Diamondbacks are downright bad this year at 6-11 and the only offense more anemic in the National League is the Cincinnati Reds.
On the Dirt
Nathaniel Lowe, 1B ($3,600)
I’m a little surprised his price is still this low(e). He has mashed all year leading the American League in hits with 24. The Rangers first baseman has scored at least nine DK Points in 10 of his 16 games. He gets to face Jake Odorizzi who has been getting lit up to the tune of a 9.00 ERA. He has also allowed 16 hits in just eight innings on the season.
Jeff McNeil, 2B ($3,900)
McNeil is getting hot, and we need to jump on it. He is 6-for-16 with four extra-base hits and five runs scored in his last four games. While the offense of the Mets has slowed down a little, they have still scored five or more runs in six of their last nine games.
Austin Riley, 3B ($3,800)
The big third baseman is 4-for-10 in his last couple of games with a home run in each. For the season Riley has a .985 OPS and has 18 hits (10 for extra bases) and eight walks in 17 games. He faces Marcus Stroman whose first two games for his new team haven’t gone as planned. The right-handed hurler has given up a long ball in each start. That is why Riley is my Home Run Call of the night.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa, SS ($3,300)
The Yankee shortstop is currently on a six-game hitting streak with three of those games of the multi-hit variety. Kiner-Falefa also has chipped in four runs, five RBIs, and two stolen bases in that stretch. Jordan Lyles goes for the Orioles tonight and although he pitched fairly well against them a couple of Fridays ago, I think New York and Kiner-Falefa catch up to him this time around in the Bronx.
On the Grass
Joc Pederson ($4,000)
Joc is a baaad man. The outfielder was clutch last night against the Brewers and has three bombs in his last eight plate appearances. He is now tied with C.J. Cron and Ozzie Albies for the NL lead with six. All six of those homers off the bat of Pederson have come against right-handers. He faces right-hander Daulton Jefferies tonight.
Andrew Benintendi ($3,900)
We go from the HR leader in the NL to the batting average leader in the AL. Benny is hitting .388. The fact that he is facing a lefty doesn’t bother him either as he batted .303 against southpaws last season. On top of that, he gets to face Dallas Keuchel tonight who got lit up in his last start. Benny is 4-for-8 with a HR against the White Sox lefty.
Robbie Grossman ($3,400)
While he has yet to hit a home run or steal a base, he is a leadoff hitter who gets on base. In fact, Grossman has reached base in nine of his last 13 plate appearances. The former Minnesota Twin hits well at Target Field slashing .262/.369/.401 for his career there. He may not have the highest ceiling, but he is almost guaranteed some points.
Cody Bellinger ($3,200)
The former Rookie of the Year and MVP looks like he may be getting back to normal. While we can’t expect 2019 levels again just yet, Bellinger has three multi-hit games in the last week and has even contributed three SBs on the season. Zach Davies is on the mound for the Diamondbacks and hasn’t pitched well this year. The bullpen offers no solace for Arizona either as their relievers have a 4.33 ERA with an awful 1.390 WHIP.
If you can afford some higher-priced hitters, here are a few guys I like:
Good luck in all of your DFS lineups tonight.
