FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (4/22)

There’s a good chance we see Jeremy Shell-ickson in Coors Monday.

Welcome to our Monday FanDuel lineup advice article. We have something of a bizarre pitching slate today. Some of the more historically reliable pitchers are discounted due to slow starts, while the emerging names are closer to the top. There are also some low totals expected on this slate, with CWS @ BAL (10.0 O/U) the only game where more than nine runs are expected, although there is no total for the Coors Field game yet as Colorado has yet to announce a starter.

Starting Pitcher

Chris Sale (BOS): $8,400 vs. DET
I never thought I’d see the day where Chris Sale is the fifth most expensive starting pitcher on a DFS slate, especially behind pitchers like Matt Boyd and Brad Keller. From a results perspective, it makes perfect sense. Boyd and Keller have been great this year, while Sale has been a disaster. That doesn’t scare me away from this opportunity. Sale is one of the game’s best starting pitchers, and he’s facing a lineup that has a 58 wRC+ and .086 ISO against left-handed pitching this season. Sale is worth the risk in GPP games on this slate.
