MLB Draft Kings Picks



I'll be posting MLB Draft Kings picks here. These are all lineups I will be playing personally.

In baseball, you want to stack teams because players correlate with one another. Most of my lineups will be four- and five-man stacks. Cash games will feature my top stacks, while tournament lineups will have low-owned stacks against chalky, non-elite pitchers.

Monday, July 29, 2019: Night Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 29 night slate:



This is the one lineup I'm playing for the night slate. I recommend stacking the Angels. They're the highest-owned team, but their chances of being the top stack are greater than their ownership. I also like the Padres tonight, as they'll be able to beat up on a bad pitcher.

Wednesday, July 24, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 24 main slate:



I love the Yankees tonight. Their lineup has the best chance to be the highest-scoring stack, and yet only three players (Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks) are projected for more than 10-percent ownership. I initially was going to move away from Hicks or Gregorius, but the way this played out, I used all three, which I'm OK with.

Here's a lineup without one of those guys:



The difference is no Max Muncy, and I wanted to have one of the Dodgers bats in my lineup to complement the Yankees.

Monday, July 22, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 22 main slate:



My friend BCB talked me into stacking the Cardinals. They're cheap and lowly owned, which allows for Mike Clevinger and a mini-Rangers stack. I would use Clevinger over Gerrit Cole because Cole's ownership is expected to be massive.

Sunday, July 21, 2019: Nationals at Braves Showdown


Here's my lineup for the July 21 Nationals at Braves showdown:



I made note on the MLB Picks page that the Nationals are more likely to win than the Braves in this game. Yet, Washington is a big underdog, so most people will likely place Atlanta players into the lineup. We can get some nice leverage with the presumably less-owned Washington bats.

Wednesday, July 17, 2019: Mariners at Athletics Showdown


Here's my lineup for the July 17 Mariners at Athletics showdown:



You want to roster as many Athletics bats as possible. They're projected to score north of five runs in this game, so this lineup features a nice stack of Oakland players. The guy at the bottom is Anthony Bass, a Mariners reliever who often enters the game when the team is losing. Including him (remember to uncheck "remove non-probables") was the only way to have three great and two decent Oakland hitters in this lineup.

Tuesday, July 16, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 16 main slate:



Shout out to my friend BCB, who lives in northeast Ohio. He told me that the weather concerns in Cleveland aren't too bad, so I like stacking the very lowly owned Indians tonight. The only chalk I have in this lineup is Brandon Woodruff, who is well worth it at his low price. Cody Bellinger is semi-chalk, but he's one of the top players in baseball, and the sky is the limit for him. I also put a mini-Marlins stack together. The matchup isn't bad for them tonight.

Saturday, July 14, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 14 main slate:



The Rays are projected to score the most runs in the main slate (no Coors.) All of these players are highly owned, save for Ji-Man Choi. To make up for this, I've gone with a lowly owned Yankees mini-stack. D.J. LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres won't be owned at all today. The same goes for the SP2, despite Sandy Alcantara's good value.

Saturday, July 13, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 13 main slate:



I'm going to be stacking the Rockies tonight, as they project as the highest-scoring team on the computer model. There are some chalky Colorado players, but not Raimel Tapia, who is projected for 5-percent ownership. Julio Teheran is chalk as well, but he's too cheap to ignore. To get more differentiation, I went with Wade Miley as my other pitcher. Battling Texas could prove to be difficult, but Miley could strike them out a good deal. The Rangers are projected for 4.3 runs, so Miley could have more success than expected.

Saturday, July 13, 2019: White Sox-Athletics Showdown


Here's my lineup for the July 13 White Sox-Athletics Showdown:



I have two lineups for this game. The first involves Chris Bassitt as the captain, as the White Sox strike out frequently, giving the Athletics' pitcher plenty of upside. I went with Oakland bats otherwise, with the lone exception being a White Sox reliever who didn't pitch yesterday. To find Kelvin Herrera, you need to uncheck "remove all non-probables" at the bottom.

This lineup focuses more on the Oakland hitters:



Matt Olson is more likely to hit a home run today than anyone else, so I wanted to make him the other captain. Again, this is all Oakland with Herrera being the lone exception, only because it's required to roster one player from each team.

Saturday, July 13, 2019: Early Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 13 early slate:



At first glance, this lineup may look chalky. The Yankees are the highest-owned projection in the early slate. However, Didi Gregorius is projected for relatively low ownership, so that's a way to get differentiation. Kevin Kiermaier and Mike Zunino aren't projected to be highly owned either (for a three-gamer.)

Friday, July 12, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 12 main slate:



I'm stacking the Dodgers tonight. No one on that team is projected for more than 3 percent ownership, save for Justin Turner. Yet, they project well tonight and provide some good value. Saving some money on the Dodgers bats allows for Gerrit Cole, who is only projected for 16-percent ownership. I'm also able to use Aaron Judge, who is the top high-end value on tonight's slate.

Friday, July 12, 2019: Pirates-Cubs Showdown


Here's my lineup for the July 12 Pirates-Cubs showdown:



I don't like playing either pitcher in this game; the Cubs figure to score a bunch of runs, while the Pirates don't strike out very much. Thus, I've put together a lineup with raw batting upside. Javier Baez has the most potential to hit a home run out of anyone in this contest, so I made him my captain. Robel Garcia, Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward provide tremendous value at their prices. Meanwhile, the Pirates have some hitters who could get a dong as well. Josh Bell could easily get a dong, of course, but getting him into a lineup that already had Baez in it is impossible. Or is it...



Here's an alternative lineup. It has a lower floor because we're including the Cubs' eighth batter, but if Baez and Bell both go yard, you could be in a good position to be atop the leaderboard.

Thursday, July 11, 2019: Astros-Rangers Showdown


Here's my lineup for the July 11 Astros-Rangers showdown:



I wanted to make Lance Lynn my captain because many people won't be doing that, given the total on this game (10.5). However, Lynn scored 21 DK points the previous time he battled the Astros, and his strikeout potential is too great to ignore. Making a Jeff Mathis-less lineup with Lynn as my captain proved to be difficult, but this is what I came up with. A Rangers stack makes sense, as Framber Valdez could be lit up this evening.

Saturday, July 6, 2019: Early Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 6 early slate:



The pitchers are chalk, but I don't see an alternative if you want Max Scherzer in the lineup. Scherzer is not only great, but has the narrative behind him as well, given that his wife just welcomed a second daughter to the world. I want to roster Scherzer, so Max Fried is not a bad SP2 to pair with him. Given the chalk at pitching, I wanted a low-owned stack. NO ONE is owning the Yankees because people are apparently scared of Blake Snell. The Yankees have rocked Snell this year, so I don't see why that can't happen again. The remaining players are value, save for Michael Chavis. I wanted at least one Red Sox player in the lineup, and Chavis is projected for only 12 percent ownership, which is minuscule compared to the other Boston players.

Saturday, July 6, 2019: Turbo Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 6 turbo slate:



This is for the two-game slate beginning at 2 p.m. There is MASSIVE ownership with the two other pitchers (Michael Pineda, 80%; Clayton Richard, 60%), so I think we can gain leverage by going with the other two pitchers. I actually like Andrew Cashner and Jesse Chavez today, and you can see why on my MLB Picks page. With only two games going on, it makes sense to stack the other sides.

Thursday, July 4, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 4 main slate:



Happy 4th to everyone! Let's try to win some money today with this 4-3 White Sox-Yankees stack. Both of these teams are low-owned when compared to the Twins, Tigers and Cardinals, and yet both teams have a good chance of being the top stack of the day. The pitchers are chalky, but there aren't many good options as far as arms are concerned on this slate. Here's the link to sign up for Draft Kings.

Wednesday, July 3, 2019: Late Night Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 3 late night slate:



This is a two-game slate at the end of the night featuring the Dodgers-Diamondbacks and Mariners-Cardinals contests. My lineup correlates with my Baseball Picks, where I have the Mariners winning. Thus, I'm stacking four Seattle players along with four of the Dodgers, a team with the highest-expected run total among these four squads. Here's the link to sign up for Draft Kings. Use promo code walterFootball for a bonus with your first deposit.



Wednesday, July 3, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 3 main slate:



Say what you want about going with the chalky stack, but a five-man Astros lineup won one of the Draft Kings tournaments yesterday. Houston is projected to score the most runs tonight, so I want at least four of its bats. I like the Red Sox as well, so this is a 4-3 stack lineup. Some of these guys are highly owned, but not Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers. Meanwhile, I like Travis d'Arnaud as a one-of because he's batting first. The two pitchers, meanwhile, aren't highly owned either but have good upside.

If you want to pay up for pitchers, check out this less-chalky lineup (except for the two obvious guys):



Chris Sale and Trevor Story are the chalk here, but no one is stacking the Tampa lineup against a pedestrian Baltimore pitcher.

Monday, July 2, 2019: Night Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 2 night slate:



The Dodgers aren't owned very much on the main slate, but they're the highest-owned team at night, and understandably so. I like the four players I have in this lineup. Because I have some highly owned players, I like fading the highest-owned person on the slate, pitcher Jack Flaherty (53%). The computer model says the Mariners are expected to score five runs, so I would roster at least a couple of them.

Monday, July 2, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 2 main slate:



At first glance, this Rockies-stacked lineup may seem chalky, but Josh Reddick is projected for 3-percent ownership. The Rockies are less owned than the Astros for the most part, save for Trevor Story, who is insanely cheap for how great he is.

If you're looking for a less-chalky lineup, consider this:



The Dodgers are very low-owned tonight. Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy are projected for 4-percent ownership, while Alex Verdugo is less than 1-percent owned. This will help with differentiation when including a very chalky play like Trevor Story, who is well worth the chalk at just $4,500.

Monday, July 1, 2019: Main Slate


Here's my lineup for the July 1 main slate:



This is a five-three stack between the Brewers and Rays, respectively. Milwaukee and Tampa are two of the top-three highest-projected offenses per the computer model today. Cincinnati is the other, but the Rays should produce more runs than the Reds. I would not pay up for any pitching tonight, by the way. No one stands out, so I'd rather pay up for bats.

Monday, July 1, 2019: Royals at Blue Jays Showdown


Here's my lineup for this contest:



As I discussed on the Baseball Picks page, the Royals are expected to win this game by scoring nearly six runs. I'm stacking their lineup for that reason.
