MLB Primer Lucas Giolito

Lucas Giolito should continue his July turnaround against the Royals on Wednesday night.

Yesterday’s game between the Blue Jays and Red Sox was washed out. It will be made up tonight as part of a seven-inning doubleheader, making tonight an 11-game slate on DraftKings and a 10-game slate on FanDuel.

There are many talented pitchers to choose from in the upper tier. However, the bargain arms leave a lot to be desired, save for one featured option in a plus matchup. Thankfully, the hitters highlighted in tonight’s top stacks, core studs, and value plays/punts provide enough salary relief to pony up for the top-four touted pitchers.

Wednesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Lucas Giolito is my favorite pitcher across all game types tonight. He has a softer matchup than fellow ace Walker Buehler, who is still an elite GPP option. At DraftKings, I'm willing to roll the dice on the volatile Andrew Heaney as my SP2. The Rockies are just that bad on the road. Tylor Megill makes for an intriguing GPP option despite Atlanta's offensive outburst last night.
