We have eleven games tonight with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Freddie Freeman and the Atlanta Braves, taking on Dominic Smith and the New York Mets in New York. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the Chicago White Sox (5.8), Los Angeles Angels (5.7) and the Cincinnati Reds (5.1).

The risk of rain for all games today is below 10 percent so we shouldn’t see any games postponed or delayed.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 7/28/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherMadison Bumgarner $9,500
 First BaseJoey Votto $4,300
 Second BaseJean Segura $3,900
 Third Base   
 Short StopKyle Farmer $3,600
 OutfieldBryce Harper $5,700

Madison Bumgarner  – P ($9,500) – This is going to get to be a running theme, but it’s pretty much any pitcher against the Rangers is worth using. Bumgarner has only given up two runs in his last two starts which will make him usable tonight. I don’t love the price given his strikeout production, but the Rangers bring you some safety.

Joey Votto – 1B ($4,300) – Make it four straight games with a home run for Votto, and five home runs in those four games. This price for that kind of production is hard to deny.

Kyle Farmer – SS ($3,600) – Farmer has been a nice little gem. He has a hit in five straight games, with three multi-hit games and two home runs in that span of games.

Jean Segura– 2B ($3,900) – Segura is in midst of a nine game hitting streak right now and he has a double, a home run and a stolen base in his last three games. He will be facing a left-handed starter tonight, and he has hit for a batting average of 0.324 and a SLG of 0.500 this year.

Bryce Harper- OF ($5,700) In his last five games, Harper has three doubles a home run, and four steals. He is playing well tonight and is another hitter in the Phillies lineup that hits lefties well.

The Pitchers

Max Fried ($8,500 DK) While Fried has given up more than three runs in two of his last five games, in each game he has gone at least five innings, and struck at at least five batters. He has pitched well against the Mets this year though, giving up just three runs in his two starts against them.

Walker Buehler ($10,500) – You won’t find many pitchers safer than Buehler. He doesn’t strike a lot of batters out, but he gives you seven innings consistently and he has won half of the games he has started this year, with the upside of still being able to get you 10 plus strikeouts in a good matchup.

Lucas Giolito ($9,800) – This is a nice price for Giolito. He hasn’t given up more than two runs in any of his last three starts, while striking out 20 batters in those three games. It is a good opportunity for him to keep his streak alive tonight against the Royals.

The Value Players

Austin Riley – 3B ($3,700) – Riley has hits in each of his last six games, with four of those games being of the multi-hit variety. During that streak he had three doubles and four home runs.

Andrew McCutchen – OF ($3,800) – Always Cutch against a leftie. Say it with me folks. He has a batting average of  0.297 against them to go along with six doubles, a triple, and ten home runs.

Eloy Jimenez – OF ($2,800) – Eloy had two hits last night which included a home run. He is significantly underpriced so use him while you can.

The Stacks

Cincinnati Reds – With Votto playing as well as he is, and how he is priced, its not hard to make a Reds stack. We talked about Farmer, but you can add Winker and India to that and you didn’t spend over 4500 for any of the four players.

Philadelphia Phillies – The Phillies hit lefties very well. We talked about three of them in this article with Harper, Segura, and McCutchen, and if you want to add Rhys Hoskins to that you can.

Chicago White Sox – The White Sox are a different team with Jimenez in the lineup, and as noted yesterday his price allows you to get a 5k Jose Abreu in without any trouble, or a pricier Tim Anderson, to add to Yoán Moncada.

Go win your lineup and tell us how you did. Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) is a good place for that.
