Slate Summary

  • Johan Camargo is not starting today as lineups were just released. Realmuto will be leading off for the Phillies who is my favorite player on DK. Right behind him, I have Harper locked as well for 6.2k. I really like the Phillies bats on both sites today and they should be awake against Chad Kuhl. As for my two pitchers, Montas is a lock for me and should be heavily owned and for my second pitcher, it’s a toss up between Manaea and Kershaw. As for now, I have Manaea in my core plays but if you want to be different, Kershaw is a great option as well. For GPP stacks, I have PHI, LAD and HOU in that order.


  • Bryce Harper (PHI) (OF) – $6,200
  • J.T. Realmuto (PHI) (C) – 5,600
  • Frankie Montas (OAK) (P) – $7,300
  • Sean Manaea (SD) (P) – $9,100
