Use the promo code “RONDO” to get 50% off the weekly DFS Crunch plan. New members only.

Slate Summary

  • My core plays are similar to FD but with Perez being my favorite core play over on DraftKings. Perez and the KC Royals are in a smash spot and will be chalk in cash games. I am also locking in Scherzer here as well for 10.4k. If I were to pick one pitcher and one batter, it would be Perez and Scherzer on both sites.
  • I don’t usually like locking in 2 pitchers but with Scherzer as a must play and Eduardo Rodriguez being too cheap. It’s hard not to pair these two in your cash game builds. With a 58% implied win total, the Tigers have a good chance to rack up some runs for Rodriguez to pick up the win. The Orioles are on a good stretch with 6 wins in their last 8 but that doesn’t scare me today.


  • Salvador Perez (KC) (C) – $5,300
  • Max Scherzer (NYM) (P) – $10,400
  • Eduardo Rodriguez (DET) (P) – $7,100


  • Eduardo Rodriguez (DET) (P) – $7,100
