We’ve got a 13-game slate for Monday. The pitching options up top aren’t great but there are definitely viable options with good matchups. Coors Field is on the slate so, to Coors Field or not to Coors Field. That is the question. There are plenty of attackable pitchers so I don’t think it’s a necessity. TB, CHW, ARI, LAA, and PHI are projected for fewer than four runs. LAD, COL, SD, MIL, and BOS are projected for at least five runs. No teams are projected for fewer than three runs. SD is projected for a whopping 6.4 runs, the highest I’ve seen all season. MIA/STL and BAL/CLE have not had their lines posted yet.
TOR/BOS and CHC/NYM have slight weather concerns but neither looks daunting.
Here’s our 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 6/14/21 (using DraftKings Values)
|First Base||Mitch Moreland||$3,600|
|Short Stop||Jorge Polanco||$4,900|
Salary Remaining $000
Lance Lynn ($9,900)
Lynn has a 12.2 percent swinging strike rate with a 2.97 FIP. He’s struck out 72 batters in 65.2 innings while allowing 17 walks and six home runs. He scored at least 23 DKFP in each of the last four games. On the season, he’s scored fewer than 10 DKFP twice but gone for at least 23 in every other game with a high of 48.3. Now he faces a Rays team that is fourth in strikeouts against right-handed pitching.
Jacob Stallings ($4,000)
Stallings has hit three of his four home runs against left-handed pitching. The batting average is only .178 but the BABIP is only .161 so there’s been some bad luck. The ISO is a healthy .244. He gets to face Jon Lester who has allowed a .304/.376/.500 slash to righties with five home runs.
Mitch Moreland ($3,600)
Moreland bats cleanup for the Athletics against right-handed pitching. The slash is .255/.306/.388 against righties. The ISO is only .133 but his career mark is .211. Now he gets to face Dylan Bundy who has been generous to both righties and lefties. He’s allowed a .367/.321/.500 slash to righties with seven of 13 home runs. The Angels bullpen also has the fifth-highest FIP.
Jorge Polanco ($4,900)
Polanco is a switch-hitter who bats leadoff for the Twins. Against left-handed pitching, the slash is .278/.325/.486 with a .208 ISO. Marco Gonzales has allowed seven home runs to righties with a .293/.369/.616 slash. The FIP is 6.32 against them.
Raimel Tapia ($3,800)
Tapia bats leadoff for the Rockies who are in Coors Field. At home, the slash is .304/.355/.496 with a .192 ISO. On the road, it is .273/.310/.300 with a .027 ISO. He’s also slightly better against right-handed pitching with a little more pop against them compared to lefties. Dinelson Lamet has actually been much tougher against lefties on the season but he’s in Coors Field and Tapia has multiple paths to fantasy goodies as he can be a terror on the base path.

• Some creative ways to build various yet tasty lineups for today
• A number of alternative picks that you mix in for some variations on your core lineups.
- I really like the Pirates stack against Jon Lester, even the lefties up top. Lester has a 5.01 FIP on the season with a 6.28 K/9 and 3.72 BB/9. Adam Frazier has a .329/.373/.557 slash with a .229 ISO against left-handed pitching this season.
- Tyler Glasnow, Adam Wainwright, and Alex Wood are the three main pitchers I like pairing with Lynn. I don’t see like anything in the lower price tier. I’m not crazy about the matchup for Glasnow but his ability to miss bats is elite. Wainwright has a great matchup as the Marlins are sixth in strikeouts and 28th in ISO against right-handed pitching. Wood faces a Diamondbacks team that is 27th in ISO against left-handed pitching.
- Cedric Mullins has been on quite the heater recently, putting up 11, 0, 5, 16, 30, and 39 DKFP in the last six games. He’s priced at $3,500 and batting leadoff.
- Eric Lauer is a lefty for the Brewers who has allowed seven home runs and a .313/.356/.613 slash to righties. Nick Castellanos and Eugenio Suarez will be licking their chops.
- I do like the Athletics stack a lot since Bundy gives it up equally to both righties and lefties. Some of the pieces are expensive, though, like Matt Olson at $5,700. I mentioned Moreland earlier but I also like Seth Brown, who is only $3,100.
