Slate Summary

  • My core plays on DraftKings are the same as FanDuel but will be adding Cristian Javier to the mix. All four of my players shouldn’t have any issues with weather but will definitely update the community if necessary.
  • Corbin Burnes is a lock for me on DK for 10.6k. No need to fade him in cash games as he will be the chalk pitcher on both sites.
  • A lefty hitter in Alek Thomas is facing off Senzatela at Coors. Lineups confirmed that he is batting 2nd and should get a ton of ABs.
  • As of now, I will be playing Burnes and Javier as my 2nd SP. Not only is the game being played in a dome but Javier also faces the number 1 team in strikeouts against right-handed pitchers. He is also an elite strikeout pitcher who has well over a 30% k rate.
  • Can’t go wrong with Buxton here, even for his price tag at 5.7. He faces Watkins who has an ERA of 5.14. It’s a small sample size but Buxton is 1 for 3 with the hit being a home run.


  • Corbin Burnes (MIL) (P) – $10,600
  • Alek Thomas (ARI) (OF) – $3,500
  • Cristian Javier (HOU) (P) – $9,200
  • Byron Buxton (MIN) (OF) – $5,700
