  • George Springer – OF – $3,700


  • Jon Gray – P – $8,100
  • Tarik Skubal – P – $8,400

  • Akil Baddoo – OF – $3,000
  • Jazz Chisholm Jr. – OF – $5,400

Slate Summary

  • Starting on the mound, locking in Jon Gray and Skubal on DraftKings makes the most sense at their relatively friendly salary. The White Sox have had a terrible year sitting near the bottom in runs scored and Skubal has turned things around in August. Over on FanDuel, there’s no clear cut SP1 to target but names like Alcantra, Gray, Skubal and Gausman are all viable in cash games. Today will be the last day the Blue Jays play in Coors Field and we are hoping to get more production from Guerrero. The Blue Jays has put up 20 runs in their first two games while Vlad has been very disappointing putting up 9.5 and 3 fpts. Besides the obvious chalk, Jazz Chisholm is my favorite play on both sites, especially on FD where he sits at $3,000.

These are the top MLB DFS picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups for September 3, 2023.
