DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Wednesday (5/22) PREMIUM
Wednesday night bring us a 10-game MLB DFS slate on DraftKings. There is plenty of star-power on the mound with four $10k aces to consider. All of them should perform well so the decision might just come down to which one you have enough salary left to roster after filling out your hitters. Speaking of hitters there are some deep value options at the plate which could free up enough money to even roster a pair of aces if you wish to go that route.
As always, be sure to pay close attention to the lineups when they are released and monitor the weather leading up to game time. For reference throughout the season, be sure to bookmark our overview of MLB Park Factors and how to Use Weather to Your Advantage in MLB DFS.
Jacob deGrom (NYM): $10,500 vs. WAS
As I mentioned in the intro, I’m okay with roster any of the high-priced aces on this slate. That said, Gerrit Cole‘s $12,000 salary might not be worth paying up for given the quality aces on this slate. DeGrom has the best mix of value, floor, and upside of the group as he pitches at home against the Max Scherzer and the Nationals. DeGrom has allowed a minuscule .215 wOBA with a 32.6% strikeout rate in 176 career plate appearances by Nationals hitters. He is coming off a surprising beating by the Marlins in his last start and should bounce back in a big way at home where he has produced better numbers over his career.
