In a bunch of meetings this AM so going to be more just posting my lineups today. Here is our DraftKings lineup for the 4-game "Early Only" slate that starts at 1:10 PM.
I'm currently fading the ATL/COL game as the weather is looking pretty iffy and even if they do get the full game in, the wind is blowing in hard. I think it's a safer play at this time to avoid this match-up.
On the mound, I'm going with Trevor Bauer and take a shot with Nick Margevicius.
I'm paying up for Bauer (even through I'm still a bit bitter about deGrom's performance last night for $12,200....I expect more than 3 points!!!...haha). Bauer has had trouble with Cabrera & Castellanos in the past, however, Bauer is pitching at a different level right now and is worth the high salary this afternoon.
I like some of the value the Giants bats had on FanDuel, but when looking at an affordable SP2, I think the left-handed Margevicius is the way to go this afternoon. The Giants offense is going to end up being one of the worst in the league and although they had success last night against a LHP, the Giants still have posted just a .223 average & .610 OPS vs. LHP on the season. Margevicius had some nice success agianst the Giants in his first start of the season as he went 5.0 IP, giving up just 1 ER while striking out 5.
I'm all over a TB stack against Reynaldo Lopez who has given up at least 4 runs, 6 hits, & 4 walks in each of his first two starts of the season.
The White Sox have a tough match-up against Tyler Glasnow, however, I like the big bats of Yoan Moncada & Eloy Jimenez. Moncada has had a strong start to the season and is much more of a power-hitter from the left-side of the plate. Jimenez has yet to hit a HR, however, it will only be a matter of time and as he is hitting out of the 5-hole, I like his value at $3,500.
Rounding out the team will be the Padres Austin Hedges & Fernando Tatis Jr. Hedges is more of a "punt" play but should be getting the start today and you have to love Tatis Jr. as the talented rookie has already racked up 3 HR's and has the looks of a potential superstar in this league.
As always, I will make any necessary updates due to confirmed lineups, weather, etc. I will do my best to update the post but if it’s a last-second update, it’s easier for me to post that with an image on Twitter (@BrettCU05).
