Best of luck to all you DFS players today, go win some money!
Draftkings Picks for June 7
Dallas Keuchel, HOU @ KC ($12,500)
The 2015 CY Young Winner is looking to repeat in 2017. So far this season, Keuchel is 9-0 with 69 strikeouts, a 1.67 ERA, and a 0.87 WHIP. With this great matchup against a struggling Royals lineup, Keuchel is going to be a common start in DFS today.
Jimmy Nelson, MIL vs SF ($7,900)
The ever so streaky Jimmy Nelson has been hot these last few weeks, and has a great matchup against San Francisco. In four of his last five games, Nelson has scored at least 24 Fantasy points. With a great matchup against a poor San Francisco lineup, look for Nelson to be a good, cheap option today.
Other Pitchers I Like
- Zack Greinke, ARI vs SD ($12,400)
- Michael Fulmer, DET vs LAA ($8,500)
- Clayton Kershaw, LAD vs WAS ($12,800)
Yadier Molina, STL @ CIN ($4,000)
Yadier Molina is one of my favorite catchers in DFS because of his consistency at the position. His hot streak as of late, plus playing in Cincinnati should give you more reason to start him. Molina is one of the best bets in the slate to produce at the catcher position.
Mike Zunino, SEA vs MIN ($3,500)
If you’re looking for a cheaper option at the catcher position, Zunino is an intriguing option. Even though he is hitting just .214 this season, Zunino has had eight or more Fantasy points in five of the last six games. This makes Zunino and interesting option at catcher today in the slate.
Other Catchers I Like
- Francisco Cervelli, PIT @ BAL ($3,400)
Paul Goldschmidt, ARI vs SD ($5,500)
Starting Goldschmidt at home against the San Diego Padres is never a bad option in DFS. So far this season, Goldy is averaging 11 Fantasy points a game, and is hitting .306 with 45 RBI. Even though he has a high price tag, Goldschmidt is a star in DFS lineups today.
Logan Morrison, TB vs CWS ($4,500)
Tampa Bay’s offense continues to be underrated for Fantasy purposes, but a struggling Mike Pelfrey on the mound should change this perception. So far this season, Morrison is hitting .243 with 16 home-runs and 37 RBI. Look for Morrison to be a solid cheap option at first base for DFS today.
Other First Basemen I Like
- Joey Votto, CIN @ STL ($4,900)
- Anthony Rizzo, CHC vs MIA ($4,700)
Dee Gordon, MIA @ CHC ($3,900)
Even though Gordon hasn’t been great this season, neither has opposing pitcher John Lackey. In addition to the lefty-righty matchup, Gordon can rack up steals when he gets on base, which are five Fantasy points each. This makes Gordon an intriguing cheaper option at second base.
Jonathan Schoop, BAL vs PIT ($4,300)
After a slow start to the season, Jonathan Schoop has finally started to heat up. Schoop is starting to hit better for average also, which increases his value in DFS. With the very inconsistent Chad Kuhl on the mound, Schoop is a solid start for DFS today.
Other Second Basemen I Like
- Jose Altuve, HOU @ KC ($5,500)
- Robinson Cano, SEA vs MIN ($4,300)
- Cesar Hernandez, PHI @ ATL ($3,700)
- Scooter Gennett, CIN ve STL ($3,600)
Jake Lamb, ARI vs SD ($5,100)
Whenever Jake Lamb gets to face a right hander at home, his value for DFS skyrockets. Lamb has been on fire all season, and has 14 home-runs with 46 RBI. Even though Lamb has a high price, facing a Padres right handed pitcher at home is a great reason to start Lamb.
Miguel Sano, MIN @ SEA ($4,700)
Another hot third baseman this season has been Miguel Sano, who has another good matchup today. So far this season, Sano is hitting .303, with 14 home-runs, 43 RBI, and a 1.017 OPS. With the struggling Gallardo on the mound, Sano is in position to produce big in this matchup.
Other Third Basemen I Like
- Eugenio Suarez, CIN vs STL ($4,000)
- Evan Longoria, TB vs CWS ($3,600)
Francisco Lindor, CLE @ COL ($5,100)
This Cleveland lineup could use a series in Coors Field, and I like to see Lindor lead the charge. Despite subpar averages this season, Lindor is still averaging just under nine Fantasy points per game. Even though Lindor still has a high price tag, starting him in Coors makes perfect sense.
Zack Cozart, CIN vs STL ($4,800)
This season, Cozart has been a star at shortstop for the Reds, and his price reflects it. With how hot this Reds lineup has been as of late, Cozart will continue to be a staple for lots of Fantasy points. Look for Cozart to continue his success against a struggling Cardinals team.
Other Shortstops I Like
- Chris Owings, ARI vs SD ($3,900)
- Corey Seager, LAD vs WAS ($3,300)
J.D. Martinez, DET vs LAA ($5,200)
Since returning from injury, J.D. Martinez has been on fire, and killing it in DFS. Martinez is hitting .292 with 10 home runs, 22 RBI, and a 1.201 OPS. With a struggling Angels’ pitching staff, Martinez looks to be an excellent start in DFS today.
Corey Dickerson, TB vs CWS ($4,700)
Corey Dickerson is another underrated Ray who is having an excellent season. So far this season, Dickerson is hitting .336, with 13 home runs and 26 RBI. With the struggling Mike Pelfrey on the mound, look for Dickerson to continue producing well.
Other Outfielders I Like
- Charlie Blackmon, COL vs CLE ($5,400)
- Matt Kemp, ATL vs PHI ($4,800)
- Ender Inciarte, ATL vs PHI ($4,700)
- Adam Duvall, CIN vs STL ($4,500)
After reading through this article, I’m sure you can all see which lineups are smart to target for batters. Even though this slate is lined with good pitchers in promising matchups, there are other less promising matchups as well. This is where you should look for hitters in today’s slate. W
ith pitchers, stick to my suggestions above. As I said, some matchups could be truly devastating to pitchers in this slate, so be careful when choosing starting pitching. I wish you all the best of luck today, and hope you all win some good DFS money with my Draftkings Picks for June 7.
