Major League Baseball presents a matchup between the Toronto Blue Jays and the San Francisco Giants. Let’s take a look at this MLB game from a Draftkings perspective.

Prior to discussing the Toronto Blue Jays vs. San Francisco Giants game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate.

Here are my Draftkings picks for this evening’s Toronto Blue Jays vs. San Francisco Giants matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Logan Webb, Pitcher, San Francisco Giants $11,800

On Wednesday night, Major League Baseball presents the second game of a three game interleague league series between the Toronto Blue Jays and the San Francisco Giants.

How are these two teams playing entering today’s MLB game? The Toronto Blue Jays have lost five of the team’s last eight games played this season, including a 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners earlier in the week. Conversely, the San Francisco Giants have won four of the team’s last seven games played in the 2024 MLB regular season, including a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in the first game of this interleague series last night.

Now that we have determined how both teams are currently playing let’s turn our attention to this evening’s game. Talented San Francisco pitcher Logan Webb has quickly established himself as a valuable member of this San Francisco pitching rotation this season. Having stated that, how has Logan Webb been playing from a statistical standpoint? Let’s review Webb’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 19 games that Logan Webb has pitched for the San Francisco Giants in the 2024 MLB regular season, Webb has posted an impressive 3.09 ERA (Earned Run Average), a 1.22 WHIP (walks, hits, inning pitched), and added a robust 127 strikeouts while allowing 27 walks.

More recently, in the San Francisco Giants 4-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves six days ago, Giants pitcher Logan Webb pitched rather well. More specifically, in the Giants 4-2 win over the Braves just noted, Logan Webb pitched seven quality innings, striking out six Atlanta Braves batters while allowing only one walk.

In conclusion, I am backing Logan Webb at the captain position on this one game MLB Draftkings DFS Showdown slate.

Flex Plays

George Springer, Outfielder, San Francisco Giants $8,200

Blue Jays outfielder George Springer certainly brings a quality bat to the Toronto Blue Jays lineup. Let me provide Springer’s recent game data to better shed light on my previous statement. In his last three games played for the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2024 MLB regular season, Blue Jays outfielder George Springer has accumulated three hits, two walks, and three runs scored in 12 plate appearances.

I expect Blue Jays outfielder Georger Springer to continue his quality play on the baseball diamond in tonight’s matchup versus the San Francisco Giants.

Additional flex plays I like (Draftkings price noted): Chris Bassitt, Starting Pitcher (Toronto Blue Jays) $11,000: Matt Chapman, Third Baseman (San Francisco Giants) $8,800.
