There are 7 games on the Monday slate which is loaded with big name pitchers.  We do have some hot weather in the earlier games on the slate which is usually good for the offenses  This shapes up as weird slate with the match-ups.  You may be able to find some value with speed on this slate since we have some pitchers who are easy to run.  I did leave the pitchers in Chicago out of the pitching options in what is expected to be a hot and humid game with the wind blowing out.

We have 14 games on the Friday slate that lacks any true pitching aces.  You would think without stud pitchers, we would have a loaded slate for hitting choices but it doesn’t work out that way.  We usually see more teams with over a 5 expected run total when you have this many games on a slate. There are three teams in particular that you should be looking to build your lineups around.  The weather should be good with just one trouble spot to keep an eye.

We have a full 15 game slate for Tuesday with a ton of options.  You can pay up for pitching or pay down depending on your preference.  We also have plenty of options to choose from on the hitting side.  I will provide some updates to the article as lineups come out.   There is some weather to keep an eye on so I will provide some updates on that as needed.

We have a solid 10 game slate on Monday.  Outside of Gerrit Cole, we have several pitchers that you probably wouldn’t have imagined using in MLB DFS earlier this season.  We don’t have an exact named starter for the Rangers as it will depend on the back issues of Bartolo Colon so that could affect some rankings.  If Colon can’t go, they could very well go the route of a bullpen game which isn’t a bad thing for the A’s bats based on the lack of quality bullpen arms.  I would expect the Brewers bats to be very popular against Homer Bailey so keep that in mind.  Depending on how you want to build your lineups, you should be able to find value bats if you want to pay up for Cole.

We have just 7 games on a light day slate.  It is slate that is low on the pitching with just 4 quality options for to choose from.  The others have just too many question marks.  We get to see 4 rookies and a bullpen night from the Angels as possible pitchers to attack.  For a short slate, we have plenty of hitting options to choose from.  This will happen with the highest pitcher on either site being $9,500.
