Top Hitters

1. Paul Goldschmidt (STL) – 1B

  • DraftKings (DK) Price: $5,800
  • FanDuel (FD) Price: $3,500

Goldschmidt has been on fire recently, and he faces a favorable matchup against the struggling Rockies pitching. With an impressive .427 OBP, .624 SLG, and 1.051 OPS against lefties since 2021, Goldschmidt is poised to deliver big points for your DFS lineup.

2. Nolan Arenado (STL) – 3B

  • DK Price: $5,400
  • FD Price: $3,200

Arenado has been consistently productive at the plate, boasting a .282/.328/.510 slash line with 23 home runs this season. He has been particularly lethal against left-handed pitchers, with a .597 career mark. Given Gomber’s struggles on the mound, Arenado presents an excellent stacking option for your lineup.

3. Elly De La Cruz (CIN) – 3B

  • DK Price: $6,200
  • FD Price: $4,200

De La Cruz may have experienced a slump, but his talent is undeniable. With eight homers and 17 steals in just 47 games, he remains one of the most exciting players in the league. Recently finding his form with a .889 OPS in his last 10 outings, De La Cruz is an attractive option to stack with other Reds hitters.

4. Bryson Stott (PHI) – 2B

  • DK Price: $4,300
  • FD Price: $3,100

Stott may not have the same power as some of his teammates, but he has been consistently productive. With a .302/.344/.434 slash line, nine home runs, and 20 stolen bases, he presents a well-rounded option for your lineup. Greinke’s struggles against left-handed hitters further solidify Stott’s potential for a big game.

5. Christian Yelich (MIL) – OF

  • DK Price: $5,300
  • FD Price: $3,600

Yelich has been exceptional this season, contributing 16 home runs and 22 steals with a .408 OBP and .946 OPS in his last 57 outings. Facing Johan Oviedo, Yelich has the platoon advantage and a favorable matchup to add more points to your DFS lineup.

6. Triston Casas (BOS) – 1B

  • DK Price: $3,900
  • FD Price: $3,100

Casas has been on fire since June, with a blistering .972 OPS and 10 home runs during that span. His underlying numbers, including a .496 xSLG and 48.1% hard-hit rate, support his sustained success. Facing Bassitt, who has struggled against lefties, Casas offers great value for your lineup.

7. Alex Bregman (HOU) – 3B

  • DK Price: $5,300
  • FD Price: $3,400

Bregman is heating up again with a .417 OBP, .645 SLG, and 1.067 OPS across his last 17 games. He has historically dominated left-handed pitchers, making him a strong play against Rodon and his shaky 6.29 ERA and 1.48 WHIP.

8. Jorge Soler (MIA) – OF

  • DK Price: $4,900
  • FD Price: $3,100

Soler’s impressive 121 OPS+ and 26 home runs make him a compelling option for your lineup. His domination against southpaw pitching, with a .747 slugging percentage and 204 wRC+, adds to his appeal against Heaney and his 4.65 xERA.

9. Kyle Schwarber (PHI) – OF

  • DK Price: $4,900
  • FD Price: $3,600

Schwarber may come with some risk, but his consistent power hitting makes him a homer threat every time he steps up to the plate. With 95 home runs over the last three years and a favorable matchup against Greinke’s low K-rate, Schwarber has the potential to deliver a big game.

10. Chas McCormick (HOU) – OF

  • DK Price: $4,300
  • FD Price: $3,500

McCormick has been red-hot in the second half, with seven home runs, a 1.168 OPS, and 216 wRC+ across 20 games. While he may not maintain this pace, his .461 xSLG and 12.5% barrel rate indicate he can continue to be productive. Facing Rodon, McCormick is an appealing pick for your lineup.

11. Brandon Belt (TOR) – 1B

  • DK Price: $3,300
  • FD Price: $2,800

Belt remains an undervalued asset in the heart of Toronto’s lineup against right-handed pitchers. With a .360 OBP, .507 SLG, and .867 OPS against righties since 2021, Belt presents a cost-effective option for your DFS lineup.

12. Tommy Pham (ARI) – OF

  • DK Price: $3,100
  • FD Price: $2,900

Pham’s .261/.342/.456 slash line might not fully reflect his true potential. With impressive underlying numbers, including a .294 xBA and .515 xSLG, Pham is due for positive regression. Facing Keuchel, who has struggled in recent seasons, Pham could capitalize on this matchup.

13. Ryan Mountcastle (BAL) – 1B

  • DK Price: $3,800
  • FD Price: $3,500

Mountcastle’s hot streak makes him a strong option for your lineup. With 11 hits in his previous four games and a .351 AVG, .691 SLG, and 1.080 OPS against southpaws this season, Mountcastle has a good chance of producing big numbers against Quintana.

14. Brandon Lowe (TB) – 2B

  • DK Price: $4,500
  • FD Price: $3,300

Lowe is a beast against righties, consistently batting third in the Rays lineup. With an .839 OPS against them over the last three years, Lowe is a reliable option for your DFS lineup. His recent form with a .424 OBP, .767 SLG, and 1.191 OPS bodes well for a strong showing.

15. Will Benson (CIN) – OF

  • DK Price: $3,300
  • FD Price: $3,000

Benson has been a hidden gem for Cincy, boasting a .379 OBP, .524 SLG, and .902 OPS in just two months at the major league level. Particularly effective against right-handers, Benson presents a sneaky stacking option with Cruz, as they bat next to each other in the lineup.

16. Joc Pederson (SF) – OF

  • DK Price: $4,200
  • FD Price: $3,000

Pederson’s prowess against righties makes him a valuable asset for your lineup. With a .363 OBP, .483 SLG, and .850 OPS against them, Pederson is well-positioned to capitalize on the matchup against the weakest pitching staff in baseball.
