We have seven games today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Toronto Blue Jays, taking on Austin Meadows and the Tampa Bay Rays in Tampa Bay. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the New York Yankees (5.4), Houston Astros (5.4), and the Atlanta Braves (5.3).

The weather looks good across the board today, with less than a 10 percent chance of rain for all of the games today.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 9/20/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherFramber Valdez $9,500
 First BaseVladimir Guerrero Jr. $5,900
 Second BaseJean Segura $4,500
 Third Base   
 Short StopCarlos Correa $4,400
 OutfieldAaron Judge $5,200

Framber Valdez – P ($9,500) – Valdez has had a couple of lacklustre starts recently, but on the whole, Valdez has been good, and on top of that Valdez will face the Angels tonight who has been one of the worst offensive teams over the last two weeks.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1B  ($5,900) – To be fair you could play Vlad Jr. every night if you wanted to. He has been that good. But tonight with his price below 6k going against a rookie starter is a better night than most.

Jean Segura– 2B ($4,500) – Segura like many of the Phillies hitters hits left-handed pitching well. Add to that he has three multi-hit games in his last four games, and he has two home runs and a double in his last two games.

Carlos Correa – SS  ($4,400) – With hits in three of his last four games, and two home runs and a double in those games Correa is a nice buy at his price. The Astros offence is one of the best in the league, so getting a bat in the middle of their order can really pay off.

Aaron Judge – OF ($5,200) Judge’s bad cooled a bit against Cleveland, but with the Yankees facing a weak Rangers pitching staff tonight, he could easily outearn his value today especially at Yankee Stadium.

The Pitchers

Ranger Suárez ($6,500 DK) Suárez continues to crush it for the Phillies. He hasn’t given up more than two runs in any of his last five starts while striking out as many as eight batters in those five games and no less than five batters.

Freddy Peralta ($9,200 DK) – Peralta is coming off a great start in Detroit where he didn’t give up any runs while he struck out nine batters. The risk with Peralta is typically that he doesn’t always go deep into games, and tonight will be no different, but it is a good matchup for him at home against the Cardinals.

Néster Cortes Jr. ($8,600 DK) In his last three starts Cortes has been fantastic for the Yankees. He hasn’t given up more than two runs in those three starts, and he struck out eleven batters in his last start. He will face a weak Rangers lineup at home today so look for another solid start from him.

The Value Players

Gary Sánchez – C  ($3,700) – With Sánchez’s power potential, getting him under 4k is one that is worth paying. He had two hits yesterday, and with the Yankee’s facing Rangers pitching he could have a big night.

Jarred Kelenic- OF ($3,100) – We are going back to Kelenic today after he had a huge day yesterday and his price went down. He has three home runs and two doubles in his last three games

Eddie Rosario- OF ($2,500) – As a player who is near the minimum price, Rosario can provide a lot of value. He hit for the cycle yesterday, and he has hit home runs in two of his last three starts for the Braves.

The Stacks

New York Yankees – We discussed Sánchez and Judge, and you can add DJ LeMahieu or Gio Urshela to them to round out the stack and try and take advantage of the Rangers poor pitching.

Toronto Blue Jays – Normally you don’t stack against the Rays, but with them using a rookie tonight I think it is worth trying. We discussed Vlad Jr, but Bichette and Marcus Semien have been consistent threats as well if you can fit them in and you can always look at someone like Lourdes Gurriel Jr. who is a little less expensive to finish things up.

Philadelphia Phillies – With the way the Phillies hit lefties, they have lots of good options to look at. We discussed Segura, but Bryce Harper is always an option, and Andrew McCutchen hits lefties extremely well also.
