We have a ten-game slate with first pitches at 7:05 PM EST. We don’t have any intriguing pitching matchups tonight so look for lots of runs to be scored.

We have some lower percent changes of rain tonight in Chicago for the Royals vs the White Sox, and more importantly with the Reds in Colorado against the Rockies.

Here’s our 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 5/15/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherTrevor Bauer $11,000
 CatcherWilliam Contreras $3,400
 First BaseRhys Hoskins $4,700
 Second Base   
 Third Base   
 Short StopIsiah Kiner-Falefa $4,100
 OutfieldYonathan Daza $2,500

Salary Remaining          $0

Trevor Bauer ($11,000)

Bauer will face the Marlins tonight who are striking out more than 26 percent of the time over the last four days. This is ideal for Bauer who strikes out 35 percent of the batters he faces, and the Dodgers should win this game as well.

William Contreras ($3,400)

Coming into tonight, Contreras has hits in back-to-back games including a home run. It’s a nice matchup tonight going against the Brett Anderson and the Brewers, and more importantly he won’t cost you a fortune and we need that with Bauer’s cost.

Rhys Hoskins ($4,700)

Hoskins has hits in four of his last five games, and he has five hits in his last three games. Hoskins is a power bat who can have a big night going against a Blue Jays team who will be starting a rookie, and has a depleted bullpen.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa ($4,100)

Kiner-Falefa is coming off of a three hit, two double night last night, and he is a threat for a home run or a steal every night. The shortstop position isn’t great once you move down from the top-tier, but IKF is a player that can exceed his value from the mid-tier.

Yonathan Daza ($2,500)

Do you like value plays? Then check out Daza. He has multiple hits in three straight games, doubles in three straight games and he has four runs scored and three RBI in that span as well. I will take that for the minimum price.

Here’s our full 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 5/15/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherTrevor Bauer $11,000
 PitcherIan Anderson $9,200
 CatcherWilliam Contreras $3,400
 First BaseRhys Hoskins $4,700
 Second BaseGarrett Hampson $4,300
 Third BaseAustin Riley $4,000
 Short StopIsiah Kiner-Falefa $4,100
 OutfieldYonathan Daza $2,500
 OutfieldKyle Tucker $3,200
 OutfieldKyle Schwarber $3,600

Salary Remaining          $0

Ian Anderson ($9,200)

Anderson will face the strikeout prone Brewers tonight. The Brewers have been among the five most teams that strikeout the most all year so far. Anderson’s last two starts haven’t been fantastic, but he has twelve strikeouts in his last ten innings, and I would expect that trend to continue.

Garrett Hampson ($4,300)

Hampson is a player that can affect the scoresheet in every way. He can steal bases, and he can hit home runs(as he has now shown in back-to-back games). He had a big game yesterday leading off for the Rockies, and he has a good chance to repeat that if he his back in the lead-off spot again today.

Austin Riley ($4,000)

Riley just continues to hit. He has at least one hit in five of his last six games, and while the extra base hits haven’t been there recently, he has power so they should come. This isn’t a bad price for a good hitter in a good lineup.

Kyle Tucker ($3,200)

Tucker has gotten hot after a slow start. He has multi-hit games in three of his last four games, and he has home runs in two of those games as well. There is a good chance he is highly owner today with his price tag, but we will take it.

Kyle Schwarber ($3,600)

Coming into today’s game, Schwarber has hit home runs in three of his last five, including back-to-back games. When he is going well he is going to produce big numbers, so use him while he is both cheap and hot.

Alternative Moves…

Max Muncy – 1B ($5,500 DK) Muncy has homered in three straight games, and with that owns the highest slugging percentage in baseball over the last five days. He isn’t going to come cheap, but he won’t be facing an ace tonight and you want to try to get hot hitters into your lineup if you can afford them.

Adam Wainwright– P ($8,800 DK) Wainwright is a nice sneaky play tonight. Many people will see the matchup against the Padres and just move on, but the Padres have an on base percentage of just 0.319 over the last five days, and are missing key pieces in their lineup. Wainwright has been no slouch either, he is coming off a three hit shutout, and he has given up two runs or less in four of his seven starts so far this season.
