I am feeling quite confident today after my Taijuan WalKKKKKKKKKKKer pick last week. Yes, that is 11K’s for those counting at home! Full slate today of games today starting in the afternoon. Let’s look at a Main DFS for tonight.

***Note***

CLEVELAND/DETROIT PPD

Pitcher To Target – Matt Andriese ($6,900) vs. MIA

Andriese is not a sexy pick. I understand that. However, he is solid in deeper leagues and can be a cheap source of FP in DFS leagues tonight. He has a favorable matchup against Miami tonight at the Trop. In 5 starts, Andriese has 3 QS and a 22:10 KBB ratio.

Pitcher To Stack Against – Alex Meyer vs. SEA

I am still high on Seattle after the slow start to the season. Alex Meyer is getting the call up for his second spot start of the season. The knock on him has always been his control. Against a solid lineup like Seattle a pitcher does not want to miss his spots!

Hitters I Like

My plan tonight is definitely original! I plan to go with hitters that seem to be heating up and hitting their stride, yet are still relatively cheap in DFS. Yes. I know that is one of the key strategies in DFS. However, looking at the prices it seems that nearly an entire lineup can be had this way.

Potential Lineup

P – Matt Andriese

C – Yadier Molina

1B – Hanley Ramirez

2B – Robinson Cano

3B – Jedd Gyorko

SS – Jean Segura

OF – Michael Conforto

OF – Corey Dickerson

OF – Domingo Santana
