Stephen Strasburg
FD: $10500
DK: $13400

I realize Strasburg’s price is a bit insane on DraftKings, but I can’t help but see him as the clear best option of the slate. This is not a top-end Dodgers lineup, as evidenced by the 3.5 run implied total. There’s a lot of swing and miss there too, with Pedereson, Bellinger, Grandal, Kemp and Taylor all projected to strikeout at a greater than average rate. He’s in a great spot to rack up Ks and pick up a win.

Yu Darvish
FD: $7400
DK: $8600

If I’m looking at the mid-tier for pitching, Yu Darvish is a clear landing spot. There’s very little to fear in the Reds lineup, so getting a guy with Darvish’s stuff at his price is amazing. The Reds have been atrocious against RHP this season, sporting an 88 wRC+. You can get to these two pitchers with a stack of the Rangers and Twins, who both made my Spotlight Stacks.
