MLB Draft King Lineup #DFS
MLB DraftKings lineup from writer and baseball stat nerd Steve McFadden.
P – Jose Quintana($8200)
He boasts solid underlying stats heading into Tuesday’s matchup with the Indians. His xFIP and SIERA are 3.55 and 3.43 respectively, suggesting his 4.39 ERA is likely going to trend downward going forward.
P – Trevor Bauer($6800)
U.S. Cellular Field has been a pitcher’s park to date, coming in at 25th in adjusted runs. Bauer continues to showcase an elite strikeout rate and boasts solid underlying numbers as well.
C – Buster Posey($4300)
He is coming in with a day’s rest from travel and will continue his climb toward a .300 batting average.
1B – Todd Frazier($4600)
Frazier brings rare value at 1B with his ability to steal bags and hit home runs. Facing struggling RHP Yordano Ventura, Frazier should have a big day.
2B – Dee Gordon($4800)
He is a good bet for a few hits and a stolen base or two going against righty Jeremy Hellickson, who has allowed a .472 OBP to left-handers this season.
SS – Brandon Crawford($4000)
He has 6 home runs and boasts an .380 OBP, third among qualified shortstops.
3B – Manny Machado($4200)
Manny provides a good opportunity to pile on against Taijuan Walker at Camden Yards, which has been the league’s easiest park to score runs.
OF – Charlie Blackmon($4500)
Must start facing a RHP at Coors Field.
OF – Adam Jones($4400)
Another great opportunity to pile on against Walker at Camden Yards.
OF – Jason Heyword($4000)
Good value play at $4,000 playing at home at Turner Field, which comes in at 2nd in run factor.
