MLB DFS DraftKings Picks

October 11/22

Slate Summary

  • Cole at $9,700 is a must play in cash games on this 4 game slate. Locking in Cole at SP1 is how I will build my lineup and for the SP2 spot, I’m deciding on either Fried or JV. My lean is currently Fried for $1,300 cheaper.
  • I’m a big fan of Will Smith and for 5k, he is a great option in cash games. Clevinger has a very high walk rate and a very low strikeout rate which sets up Smith perfectly along with the Dodgers. They are clearly the favorite team to stack as well in GPP.
  • If Taylor is in the starting lineup, he provides the value you need on this slate. $3,100 is very low for the matchup and will be needed if you plan on playing Cole and even spend up for SP2.
  • Although Pena’s stats are not eye catching, we are targeting volume as he should be batting near the top of the order where the Astros have an implied 3.96 runs. SS isn’t great either so I would rather spend down and look to go big in other positions.
