We have a full 15-game DFS slate tonight at 7:05 pm EDT on DraftKings, and we are going to stick with the tiers according to salary. On Sunday we had a solid day, killing it with Dylan Cease ($9,600) who put up 40.75 DK points. We also hit a few great values with Josh Bell ($4,100) – 17 points and Isaac Paredes ($3,700) – 17 points. Today, I will give you one from each salary tier for each position. There will be a high-end tier, a mid-range, and a cheap option. For the players the tiers will work like this:
In the interest of transparency as well as wanting to see how this goes, I will post the results on Tuesday’s DFS article so stay tuned.
Be sure to check us out daily for our DFS content.
On the Mound
High-End: Carlos Rodon vs. Detroit Tigers ($10,400) – I like a couple of other high-priced pitchers, but c’mon folks, it’s the Tigers.
Mid-Range: Jon Gray @ Kansas City Royals ($8,000) – He has a 21/4 K/BB rate and only three earned runs allowed over his last 18.2 innings.
Cheap: Dean Kremer @ Seattle Mariners ($6,000) – Only allowed one long ball so far and has a 1.71 ERA in four starts.
On the Dirt
High-End: Pete Alonso ($5,300) – The Polar Bear leads the NL in HRs and RBIs. If you can afford him, get him in there.
Mid-Range: Jared Walsh ($3,800) – I like the matchup against Johnny Cueto who has allowed five bombs in his last 29.2 innings.
Cheap: Trey Mancini ($3,400) – He is riding a seven-game hitting streak and more than half of his XBH have come this month.
High-End: Jose Altuve ($5,700) – Maybe it will be three games in a row with a home run in the Big Apple.
Mid-Range: Wilmer Flores ($4,200) – Flores is 5-for-14 over his last three games and faces a lefty tonight who he notoriously hits well.
Cheap: Luis Urias: ($3,100) – Tough matchup here, but he may be able to get to the rookie.
High-End: Jose Ramirez ($5,600) – See Alonso above.
Mid-Range: Yandy Diaz ($3,600) – He is leading off tonight, and Brandon Woodruff will be making his first start in a month.
Cheap: Mike Moustakas ($3,300) – 3-for-7 in his last couple of games, and Dakota Hudson has come back to earth.
High-End: Trea Turner ($6,100) – Turner in Coors Field against Kyle Freeland? Yes sir.
Mid-Range: Jeremy Pena ($4,200) – Pena worked out the rust a bit last night with his first action in nearly two weeks.
Cheap: Luis Garcia ($3,200) – The kid just continues to hit. Take the discount while you can.
On the Grass
High-End: Kyle Schwarber ($5,600) – Double-digit DK points in four of his last five games.
Mid-Range: Austin Hays ($4,200) – 1.303 OPS in his last six games and has averaged 14 DK points.
Cheap: Nick Senzel ($3,100) – He is 8-for-13 over his last four but also has three stolen bases.
Good Luck with all of your DFS lineups.
