MLB DFS Preview for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups 9/15/23
Welcome to the MLB DFS Preview for Friday, September 15, 2023. We’re here to guide you through the exciting world of MLB Daily Fantasy Sports. In this article, we’ll break down the top hitters, pitchers, and lineups for tonight’s 13-game slate. Whether you’re playing on DraftKings or FanDuel, we’ve got you covered. So, let’s dive right into the action!
Justin Steel – Chicago Cubs
Justin Steel is our top pick for tonight’s pitching slate. He’s been nothing short of spectacular this season, with 16 consecutive starts allowing three earned runs or fewer. While his strikeout rate is a solid 24.5%, it’s not as high as some other pitchers on the slate. However, his low 5.1% walk rate and impressive 3.65 skill-interactive ERA (Sierra) make him a consistent option. Tonight, he faces the Arizona Diamondbacks, a team that doesn’t strike out much but lacks power against lefties. Steel’s ability to keep the ball down and limit hard contact should serve him well in this matchup.
Other Pitching Options
- Zack Effin – Tampa Bay: While not in an ideal matchup against Baltimore, Effin brings solid strikeout potential to the table.
- Aaron Nola – Philadelphia Phillies: Nola has a good matchup against the Cardinals and offers strikeout upside.
- Tyler Skaggs – Detroit Tigers: Skaggs has been impressive since returning from injury and faces a favorable matchup against the Angels, who are missing key hitters.
- Griffin Canning – Los Angeles Angels: Canning is a value play with decent strikeout potential facing the Tigers, who struggle against righties.
- Hunter Green – Cincinnati Reds: Green has immense strikeout potential but comes with some risk due to walks and home runs. Consider him for tournaments.
Coors Field Showdown
Coors Field is always a hotspot for hitters, and tonight is no different. The matchup between the San Francisco Giants and the Colorado Rockies promises fireworks. Giants pitcher Chase Anderson has struggled, making Giants hitters like Cory Seager, Marcus Simeon, and Mitch Garver (if he plays) enticing options. On the Rockies’ side, consider Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story.
The Houston Astros face Zack Greinke, who has been giving up homers this season. Yordan Alvarez, Jose Altuve, and Alex Bregman are premium options with immense power and consistency. Look for them to exploit Greinke’s weaknesses.
The Milwaukee Brewers take on Washington Nationals pitcher Jake Irving, who’s been struggling in his rookie season. Cory Seager, Marcus Simeon, and Mitch Garver (if he plays) are top choices. Also, don’t overlook Eduardo Escobar and Avisail Garcia for some mid-priced options.
The Texas Rangers are on fire lately and face Lucas Giolito, who’s been inconsistent this season. Cory Seager, Marcus Simeon, Mitch Garver, and Adolis Garcia are all in excellent form and could exploit Giolito’s struggles.
When building your lineups for tonight, consider the following strategy:
- Lock in Justin Steel: If you’re looking for consistency, Steel is your guy. Build your lineup around his reliability.
- Mix and Match Pitchers: In multi-entry contests, consider diversifying your pitching choices. Skaggs, Canning, and Green offer value with varying degrees of upside.
- Coors Field Stacks: Include players from both the Giants and Rockies in your lineups. This game could turn into a high-scoring affair.
- Astros Power: Load up on Astros hitters like Alvarez, Altuve, and Bregman to take advantage of Greinke’s vulnerability.
- Brewers and Rangers: Utilize Milwaukee and Texas hitters for salary relief while maintaining power potential.
