DOMINATE tonight’s DFS MLB Postseason slate with these pitchers, bats and fades!
MIL @ WAS: WAS -175 O/U 7.5
TB @ OAK: TB -175 O/U 8.0
DFS MLB POSTSEASON PITCHERS
- Max Scherzer – Mad Max hasn’t looked quite the same since coming back from injury. When trying to win GPPs, we are always looking for different ways to get an edge over the field. Well, as hard as it’s going to be, I believe fading an 80% Max is the thing to do on this two-game slate. He’s clearly not at 100%, while the Brewers and Nationals have both been white-hot hitting the ball.
- Sean Manaea – Manaea has been great since coming back from an injury that made him miss most of the 2019 season. But now, he’s back and better than ever. I’ve watched every single one of his five starts this season, and he makes batters look helpless at the plate. He’s keeping them off balance, and they truly don’t know what to expect. Whether you’re fading Scherzer or not, Manaea is my top pitcher of the slate. Tampa Bay has also really struggled against LHP this season, which lines Manaea up to have a monster game.
- Charlie Morton – I don’t think there’s a pitcher I’ve faded more this season then Morton, and boy has he proved me wrong every time I’ve done so. I’m not in love with the matchup, but I’m certainly not scared of the A’s and he is pitching in one of the most pitcher-friendly parks in all of baseball. Morton will be who I’m pairing up with Manaea. Morton has only given up six hits and one run against Oakland in two starts this season.
DFS MLB POSTSEASON HITTERS BY POSITION
I’m only making one team for this slate, and my strategy is going to be fading Max and loading up on the bats from the MIL/WAS game while using both pitchers in the TB/OAK. Below are my top hitters at each position.
I’m not worried about ownership with my hitters because I will be fading Scherzer (do at your own risk).
C – Suzuki, Grandal
1B – Kendrick, Thames (has a great chance of taking Scherzer deep; had four bombs last week), Olson
2B – Moustakas, Cabrera
3B – Rendon (top play), Cabrera
SS – Turner (has a 12-game streak ending the season), Semian
OF$$$ – Soto, Eaton, Meadows
OF$$ – Grisham, Robles, Brown, Gamel
