Happy Friday. Tonight’s slate has ten games. The teams with the highest implied runs scored totals tonight are the Dodgers, Cleveland and Boston – so keep them in mind when picking players. We will keep you abreast of the juiciest matchups and make sure you know who to keep your eye on.

Today’s free pick comes from the Cincinnati Reds. Jesse Winker ($3,500 DK, $3,000 FD). Winker has been making a mockery of right-handed pitching over the last week. He has a SLG of 1.300 in his plate appearances this week. The Reds are facing Dakota Hudson of the Cardinals tonight who has a 5.40 ERA so far this year.

Pitching DFS Picks For August 10, 2020
If you’re looking to pay up for pitching tonight look no further than Aaron Nola ($9,900 DK, $10,700 FD). Nola has struck out an average of 10 batters in his last three starts and will face a Braves team tonight who has been striking out nearly 27 percent of the time over the last week. He is expensive, but he should be worth it on tonight’s slate.

Pitching DFS Picks For August 21, 2020
If you’re looking for value, Chad Kuhl ($6,900 DK, $6,600 FD) of the Pirates is a player who could pay off. The Pirates are at home and facing a Brewers team that is striking out nearly 27 percent of the time this week. Kuhl doesn’t have the same strikeout upside of Nola, and is more of a long-shot to get the win, but he is the type of player that can really pay off in GPP games.

Infield DFS Picks For August 21, 2020
Tommy La Stella ($4,300 DK, $2,700 FD) gets a nice matchup tonight going against Mike Fiers of the A’s. In the last seven days, LaStella has a batting average of  0.412 with a 0.941 SLG. 

If you are looking for a value play today, Sean Murphy ($3,900 DK, $2,200 FD) has been playing well. On FanDuel, it will make for a different build, as you will be getting a discount a first, and paying up more for another position, but it can work nicely for you. The rookie has a 0.946 SLG in his last sixteen plate appearances against right-handed pitching. This includes doubles in three of his last five games.

Outfield DFS Picks For August 21, 2020
Franmil Reyes ($4,600 DK, $3,100 FD) has seen his power start to come around in the last week with three home runs in his last six games, and pairing that with his increased walk rate, and a stable average, you should have a nice floor to go along this his ceiling.

Anthony Santander ($4,600 DK, $3,800 FD) while hidden away in Baltimore, has had a great start to this season. He has four home runs in his last five games and has a 0.409 batting average in the last week. He will get a good matchup in Boston tonight going against Colten Brewer and his near five ERA so far this year.
