Welcome to our MLB DFS Building Blocks, DraftKings and FanDuel picks for 9/24/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall plays for today’s main slate. We have already found a lot of success to start the year off and there is plenty more to come! A big KARMA takedown is imminent and only a matter of time. I will be providing Core Plays for every main slate (and day baseball) this season — you can gain access to that as well as our premium discord here.
There isn’t a lot of top tier options today at pitching. I think Clayton Kershaw stands out above the rest. With a matchup against the Cardinals at home he should have a solid day. Clayton has posted over 22 FP his last three starts and while STL doesn’t strike out a ton, he can still rack up points. Outside of a two or three players, they don’t make a lot of hard contact and Kershaw doesn’t give up a lot of it either. Clayton still has a strikeout rate around 28% and will be my first pitcher for tonight. Given how bad pitching is, we are going to go with a double spend up. Framber Valdez is in a solid spot against Baltimore. The Orioles have been hitting well at the top of the order but other than that it is pretty bleek. Framber does own a 31% strikeout rate against this current roster and I don’t expect hi to give up many eanred runs. I have no issues going with a lower owned Yu Darvish even in Coors if you want to get contrarian.
Juan Soto makes a lot of sense as your first batter in tonight. It is very obvious but in Coors he is an ELITE option. We saw him rack up over 20 FP last night and he now gets a date against Chad Kuhl who can be self destructive at times. Soto has gotten out of his recent slump and is a must for me here. Ketel Marte is my next man in with a matchup aainst Alex Cobb and the Giants. Playing at home is a significant boost here as it is a very hitter friendly park. Cobb gives up hard contact nearly 40% of the time. Marte has been seeing the ball well and doesn’t strike out a ton. Ketel also has base stealing speed which is an added bonus.
MARTE HITS FOR A CYCLE!!
