DFS: DraftKings Top Plays For Tuesday June 3rd

The daily fantasy grind never stops. Here are our recommended plays for Tuesday's DraftKings lineups.

Thearon W. Henderson

This might be the greatest lineup I ever created.  I should be charging money for this, but since I am a nice guy (and yesterday's lineup was kind of crap minus Kyle Seager), you get it for "Free 99".  Tonight is jam packed with games and mismatches, I see a lot of stuff I like - too much, I can't choose one lineup.  I chose a bunch of duos from the same team, so feel free to build your stacks around these guys.

All players' prices based on DraftKings values

SP 1 - Gerrit Cole, Pittsburgh Pirates, $9,100 - As I am writing this Charlie Morton has struck out 9 Padres, I think he is done for the night - needless to say why Cole is my SP 1.

SP 2 - Chris Archer, Tampa Bay Rays, $7,400 - Archer has looked pretty darn good in his last few starts, including an 11 strikeout game - if he do half of that tonight, in 7 innings ill be happy.  Just don't expect a win the Rays have been awful offensively.

C - John Jaso, Oakland Athletics, $3,500 - The next two players on the roster are both Oakland players, playing at Yankee stadium, against a right handed pitcher, enough said.

1B - Brandon Moss, Oakland Athletics, $4,800 - See John Jaso.  But make sure Moss is in the lineup today; he left the game with an injury on Friday night and hasn't played since.

2B - Scooter Gennett, Milwaukee Brewers, $3,500 - Gennett seems to be catching fire like Peeta and Katniss, yet Draft Kings hasn't raised his price too much.  I like him today against Sam Deduno.

3B - Manny Machado, Baltimore Orioles, $3,700 - I think Machado is about to go on a tear - well he hit a grand slam in his last game, and he should continue raking against Joe Saunders tonight.

SS - Xander Bogaerts, Boston Red Sox, $4,000 - Is this kid in the zone or what?  Tonight he gets a left handed pitcher in T.J House, and Bogaerts hits significantly better against lefties. Take the X factor.

OF 1 - Nelson Cruz, Baltimore Orioles, $5,500 - The hottest hitter in baseball returns to Texas tonight, you don't think he will look to put on a show? Please!!!! Joe Saunders is about to get knocked around.

OF 2 - Jonny Gomes, Boston Red Sox, $3,200 - Gomes is my favorite punt outfielder when playing against a left-handed pitcher.  As mentioned with Bogaerts T.J House will be his victim tonight.

OF 3 - Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers, $5,300 - Today marks the one-year anniversary of Puig joining the Dodgers in the majors.  I expect a big game from him especially with Hector Noesi on the mound.

As always be sure to check the weather in the city your players are playing in. Don't forget to check lineups either, nothing worse than having a rostered player on your squad that isn't in the lineup
