Zack Wheeler

Zack Wheeler is a top pitching option on DFS slates tonight.

It’s a standard Tuesday night, with all 30 teams playing. The large player pool provides us a few enticing starting pitcher options. Further, the stacks are tantalizing, and there are too many bargains to whittle them down to the customary trio, so I’ve tacked an extra one on.

Tuesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Gerrit Cole was initially my top cash game option. However, he tested positive for COVID-19, bumping Zack Wheeler up from my top GPP arm to my favorite cash game pitcher. It should go without saying, but I'm also enamored with him in GPPs. Johnny Cueto is my favorite value SP2 option on DraftKings in cash games. However, Luis Patino is a viable SP2 in GPPs. He's also an intriguing GPP option at a bargain salary on FanDuel. Dylan Cease goes from narrowly missing the cut when Cole was scheduled to pitch, to rounding out the quartet of touted pitchers for tonight's slate.
