We have ten games today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers, taking on Josh Rojas and the Arizona Cardinals in Arizona. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the New York Yankees (5.8), Chicago White Sox (5.7), and the Houston Astros (5.4).
There is a risk of rain over 35 percent in Atlanta, for the game between the Braves and the Rockies, otherwise, the weather looks good across the board today, with less than a 10 percent chance of rain for the rest of the games today.
Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 9/15/21 (using DraftKings Values)
|First Base||Freddie Freeman||$5,800|
|Third Base||Justin Turner||$5,300|
|Short Stop||Francisco Lindor||$5,100|
Julio Urías – P ($10,500) – With all the pitching the Dodgers have, Urias gets lost in the sea of big names. He hasn’t given up more than two runs in his last nine starts, all while striking out 27 percent of the batters he faces.
Freddie Freeman – 1B ($5,800) – Entering tonight, Freeman has hits in seven of his last eight games, with multiple hits in five of these seven games. In the last five games specifically, Freeman has two home runs, two doubles, and a triple.
Justin Turner – 3B ($5,300) – Getting players in the top half of the Dodgers lineup is often a good proposition. Turner has hits in three straight games with a double and two home runs in those games, and he will face an Arizona team again today who lacks quality pitching.
Francisco Lindor –SS ($5,100) – Part of what you are paying for with Lindor is his three-home run game. Don’t let that fool you though he does have hits in three straight games and he has gotten on base in five straight games. Lindor is a player that can give you big point totals without having to hit home runs and he should get lots of opportunities to do that today.
Joey Gallo – OF ($4,300) Gallo has now hit a home run in back-to-back games, and he has three home runs in his last five games as well. Gallo has as much power as any player in the league and with him facing the Orioles, he could get plenty of opportunities to put that power on display.

Sean Manaea ($9,800 DK) Manaea is coming off two starts against tough teams where he struck out nine batters and didn’t give up more than two runs. He will face a Kansas City team today with who he shouldn’t have too much trouble, so expect another good start from him today.
Cal Quantrill ($8,400 DK) – If you’re looking to pay down at pitcher today Quantrill isn’t a bad option. He has only given up more than one run in one of his last four starts will striking out between five and nine batters in each of those starts.
Ranger Suárez ($7,200 DK) Suarez is another pay-down option tonight at pitcher. He hasn’t given up more than a run in any of his last four starts and he has struck out six batters on average in those four starts.
The Value Players
Brendan Rodgers – 2B ($3,800) – In Rodgers’s last five games he has hits in four of those games, including a home run last night. He hits near the top of the Rockies lineup and Atlanta isn’t a bad park to hit in.
Garrett Hampson- 2B/OF ($2,500) – Hampson has hits in six straight games, with five hits in his last two games, to go along with two home runs, a triple and a stolen base. With him leading off today for the Rockies, you might not find a better value at his price.
Gavin Sheets- 1B/OF ($3,000) – We got a big game from Sheets yesterday with a double and a home run. The White Sox will continue to face soft pitching against the Angels, so don’t be afraid to buy some of the discount parts of the White Sox.
New York Yankees – The Yankees have six players who have hit a home run in the last three days. We talked about Gallo, but you can take your pick of Stanton, Judge, LeMahieu or Anthony Rizzo and be unlikely to go wrong.
Chicago White Sox – We discussed Sheets, and I would look at add Luis Robert, and Leury Garcia to him to have a nice White Sox stack that won’t blow up your budget.
Houston Astros – When stacking the Astros tonight, I would look to Jose Altuve, Yordan Alvarez, and Yuli Gurriel if you can find the budget space to fit them all in.
