DFS - Fantasy Baseball - MLB Fanduel Lineup - Main Slate (7:05 PM) - 9/9/19

Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday!

We already posted our lineups for both “Monday Night” contests for FanDuel & DraftKings tonight and now let’s take a look at tonight’s MLB FanDuel “Main Slate” that features 8 games and starts at 7:05pm.

On the mound, we’re going to go with some value with Atlanta’s Mike Foltynewicz in his road match-up agianst the Philadelphia Phillies. Foltynewicz hasn’t been able to see the same level of success we saw from his last season as he comes into this game with a 5.28 ERA & 1.41 WHIP, however, he is coming off his best month of the season, posting a 3.90 ERA over 5 starts in August, while racking up 29 K’s in 27.2 IP. Foltynewicz has solid career numbers against the Phillies current roster as he is holding them to just a .230 average/.680 OPS in 252 AB’s and I don’t mind the match-up tonight as Philadelphia ranks just a 23rd in team batting average vs. RHP (.244 average) & 18th in team strikeout rate (8.91 K’s/game).

On the offensive end, we lead off our lineup with a 3-man stack of Milwaukee Brewers in their match-up against the RHP Robert Dugger of the Miami Marlins. Dugger comes into this game with a 4.00 ERA & 1.22 WHIP, however, hasn’t been great against LHB’s, allowing them to post a .273 average/.839 OPS.

For the Brewers, we’re going to go with Travis Shaw, Trent Grisham, & Christian Yelich.

We have a 2-man stack of Chicago Cubs in their outstanding match-up against the RHP Cal Quantrill of the San Diego Padres. Quantrill comes into this game with just a 4.57 ERA & 1.22 WHIP, however, has really struggled over his last two starts as he has allowed a combined 16 ER’s on 18 hits over just 9.1 IP. Quantrill has really struggled agianst LHB’s, allowing them to post a .290 average & .834 OPS.

For the Cubs, we’re going to go with Anthony Rizzo & Kyle Schwarber.

We also have a 2-man stack of New York Mets as we like their match-up agianst the RHP Merrill Kelly of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Merrill Kelly comes into this game with a 4.69 ERA/1.35 WHIP on the season and is coming off a solid start against the Padres, however, really struggled in the month of August as over five starts, he posted a 6.84 ERA while allowing opponents to post a .324 average agianst him. Kelly comes into this game allowing LHB’s to post a .291 average & .821 OPS against him.

For the Mets, we’re going with a few LHB’s in the heart of their order in Robinson Cano & Michael Conforto.

Rounding out the team, we’ve decided to pay up for Houston’s Alex Bregman in his match-up agianst the RHP Mike Fiers of the Oakland Athletics. Fiers has had a solid season, posting a 3.51 ERA & 1.17 WHIP, however, is a fly-ball pitcher that can give up HR’s and really struggled in his last start agianst the Astros (6.0 IP, 5 ER, 4 HR).

Bregman is hitting .458 with 2 HR’s & 6 RBI’s over the past week and has a pair of HR’s in 15 AB’s agianst Fiers.
