It's Thursday, May 19th, and we have another full day of baseball games. DraftKings' main slate begins at 12:35, as does Yahoo's, while FanDuel is considering the 12:35 slate their “early slate”. That's what we're providing content for and what this MLB DFS playbook is centered around. We don't have many weather issues at all, but if that changes at all head over to the MLB Weather Center. To see who's in and who's out of the lineup, take a look at our MLB Lineups page. That lineup page is also equipped with things like MLB BvP, lefty/righty splits, and how players fare on the road and at their home ballpark. Before locking your lineups in, take a look at the MLB Projections, powered by FanJections, and the MLB DFS Lineup Generator as well.
When it comes to the slate, I'm most comfortable spending up at pitcher than trusting any of the value options. Chris Bassitt and Yu Darvish are going to be in a lot of my lineups despite the fact that they're in tough spots too. My top stacks include the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, New York Mets, and Kansas City Royals.
On Yahoo! Fantasy, Zac Gallen stands out on the mound as well. I'd definitely take a shot on Framber Valdez in tournaments and Marcus Stroman is an interesting value coming off the COVID-IL. I like the Seattle Marines and Houston Astros stacks as well as teams mentioned above.
