Slate Summary

  • The MLB main slate for DK starts earlier today at 3:10pm PST which includes 7 games. It’s always a good day when we have no weather concerns so we can jump right into things. Starting off as always, Trea Turner for 5.5k is my favorite play for cash games and can even consider him for GPP from the LAD. He will be one of the chalkiest bats, if not the highest owned batter. As for pitching, I currently have Scherzer and Burnes but I know everyone is looking at Jose Berrios for 5.5k. It’s definitely viable in both cash and GPP contests but I would rather pay up for the two studs that gives me a safe floor. I am also a really big fan of Devers today batting 2nd for 4.5k and tend to shy away from playing batters vs my own pitchers (if I were to play Berrios). Josh Naylor and Alejandro Kirk provide the salary relief you need if you go the same route I plan on going and although their batting order isn’t the greatest, they are very cheap in a good spot.
