  • Spencer Strider – P – $12,300

  • Brandon Nimmo – OF – $3,100
  • MJ Melendez – OF – $2,800

  • Clarke Schmidt – P – $7,100
  • Pete Alonso – 1B – $4,700
  • Brandon Nimmo – OF – $4,200

Slate Summary

  • Paying a premium price for Strider but you get to roster one of the best pitchers in the league against a very disappointing Cardinals team. He also has the best offense behind him and has implied odds of -140 to secure the win. Lock him in on both sites. A solid choice for the SP2 slot is Schmidt for $7,100 which is a nice salary relief play if you plan on spending up for Strider. I’ll once again target the Mets bats, prioritizing Alonso and Nimmo who both hit dingers last night. After the Mets, the next team to look out for is the Kansas City Royals. Players like Massey and Melendez who are both under 3k on FanDuel are in excellent spots.

These are the top MLB DFS picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups for September 6, 2023.
