Slate Summary

  • We have MLB all day long and no better way to end the day by cashing in the main slate. A total of 5 games for us on FD while adding the double header game on DK to make it 6. I’ll now break down my core plays for my cash game build.
  • To start things off, my favorite pitcher and the only pitcher I am considering on FD is Justin Verlander. The 39 year old still looks good and is playing at an elite level. For 10.8, it’s just hard to fade him against the Rangers today. I will be locking him in and figuring out the rest of my build from there.
  • I am all in on the Brewers bats today in both formats. Luis Urias will be batting 2nd and for 2.9, he is very affordable in a great matchup. The Brewers have the second highest ITT so I’ll take as many right handed batters as I can. Lock for me in cash games.
  • My next favorite player is McCutchen leading off for the Brewers. He provides one of the best value on this slate for 2.8. You don’t need to stack in cash games but it’s definitely good to have some positive correlation.
  • Again, sticking with targeting right handed batters against lefty Corbin, I like Hunter Renfore here for 3k. The price is right as he is batting cleanup and should do some damage tonight, ideally to bring home Urias and McCutchen.


  • Justin Verlander (HOU) (P) (10.8)
