DFS - Fantasy Baseball - MLB DraftKings "Early Only" Lineup - 4/5/19

Hi Everyone!

It's been a busy morning, but here is my initial lineup for the DraftKings MLB Afternoon Slate that starts at 4:05 PM!

Don't forget to check out our MLB FanDuel "Early Only" Lineup!!!!

It's a 3-game slate and my initial thoughts is that we need to spend up on the offensive end in the LAD/COL game as the game is playing at Coors Field and the wind is blowing out a bit. We are going to have to sacrifice at a few of other other positions, but I'm paying up to get some solid bats on both teams in Kike Hernandez, Justin Turner, A.J. Pollock, David Dahl, Charlie Blackmon, and Tony Wolters.

On the mound, to help afford those big bats, we're going to take a chance with Nick Margevicius & Derek Rodriguez.

Margevicius will be making his 2nd career start agianst the Cardinals and looked good in his MLB debut against the Giants. It's going to be a tough match-up agianst Jake Flaherty and the Cardinals, however, I'm hoping that the Cardinals inexperience against the soft-throwing lefty will give them trouble. 

Rodriguez pitched very well in the 2nd half the season last year, posting a 2.76 ERA while holding opponents to just a .205 average in 12 starts and as the Rays have very little experience agianst the RHP, I think he comes in at solid value today at home. 

Rounding out our team, we're hoping that Brandon Belt & Brandon Crawford can provide some support for Rodriguez against Tyler Glasnow. 

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).

Good Luck!
