For today in my daily fantasy lineups I’ll be concentrating on 4 different teams in which to build my lineup. On a big 12 game slate like there is today I like looking at the pitching match ups throughout the league, pick my starting pitcher or pitchers depending on whether you are playing on Fanduel, Draft Kings, or another site. Then move on to my Lineup. I typically take high priced pitching on these days with 10+ games. Then within my 4 teams I’ll look for lower priced batters.
Pitchers on the mound I like for today include: Mike Soroka, 7-1 with a 1.38 era and 57 strikeouts, going up against the Mets. Luis Castillo, 6-1 with a 2.20 era and 96 strikeouts going against a tough Houston Astros lineup. Kenta Maeda 7-3 with a 3.89 era and 73 strikeouts going against a weak San Francisco Giants lineup. Mike Fiers should also be a decent play at 6-3 with a 4.63 era and 56 strikeouts going against a subpar Orioles lineup outside of Mancini.
The 4 lineups today I’m choosing from is:
The Dodgers against Tyler Beede who sports a 8.06 era currently.
The San Diego Padres bats vs. Jhoulys Chacin who is 3-7 with a 5.74 era.
St. Louis Cardinals going up against Elieser Hernandez who is 0-1 with a 5.87 era currently. This lineup has to start warming up at some point, right?
Lastly the Minnesota Twins vs. Rick Porcello of the Red Sox who is 4-6 with a 4.86 era.
