We have ten games today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Tommy Pham and the San Diego Padres, taking on Brandon Belt and the San Francisco Giants in San Francisco. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the Los Angeles Dodgers (6.5), New York Yankees (5.8), and the Philadelphia Phillies (5.6).

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 9/22/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherLuis Garcia $10,000
 First BaseYuli Gurriel $4,200
 Second BaseJean Segura $4,800
 Third BaseAustin Riley $4,400
 Short Stop   
 OutfieldTommy Pham $4,100

Luis Garcia – P ($10,000) – Garcia has given up three runs or less in seven of his last eight starts for the Astros. We have seen a dip in his strikeout numbers recently, but with him facing the Angels who are striking out 23 percent of the time right now he should be able to get into the five strikeout range.

Yuli Gurriel– 1B ($4,200) – Over his last seven games, Gurriel has five multi-hit games, and amazingly all of those hits have been singles. Gurriel is more than capable of hitting for doubles or better and tonight could be that night.

Jean Segura– 3B  ($4,800) – Segura has hits in four of his last six games, and he will face a left-handed starter tonight, and he has crushed lefties all year with a triple slash of 0.318/0.391/0.519.

Austin Riley – SS  ($4,400) – With hits in seven straight games Riley has started to get hot. In his last three games, he has a home run and four doubles. It is a good matchup for him today against Arizona so I would look for him to have another good night.

Tommy Pham – OF ($4,100) Pham now has hits in five straight games, and he has also hit home runs in back-to-back games. The Giants are going to Scott Kazmir who is making his third appearance of the year, and he has given up a home run in each appearance.

The Pitchers

Corey Kluber ($9,000 DK) We don’t have a lot of great pitching options tonight, which makes it really hard to pass on a start against the Rangers. Kluber sent six innings and didn’t give up a run in his last start, and if he can keep the ball in the yard tonight we should see another good start from him today.

Ian Anderson ($8,400 DK) – Andersen has back-to-back games where he has struck out seven batters or more which is encouraging. He has been another pitcher who has struggled with giving up the long ball recently, but with this game in Arizona, he should fare better today.

Zack Wheeler ($10,400 DK) Over Wheeler’s last three starts he has only given up two runs, while strikeout 23 batters. He will face the Orioles at home today who strike out more than 25 percent of the time over the last two weeks so we should be in for another solid start from Wheeler today.

The Value Players

Austin Nola – C  ($3,100) – Nola is in the midst of a five-game hitting streak, and he will face a left-handed starter today, which he has a batting average of 0.348 against on the year.

Eddie Rosario- OF ($2,900) – Rosario has six hits in his last three games with two home runs, a double and a triple. You are getting him under 3k today, and with this matchup and his power, he could really pay off.

Gavin Lux- OF ($2,800) – Lux had two hits last night and he is going to go back to him again today with the Dodgers continuing to play in Colorado. It’s hard to deny a player who is on a four-game hitting streak, with three multi-hit games in that stretch, who is also under 3k and is playing in Colorado.

The Stacks

Los Angeles Dodgers – Lux is really the key for your Dodgers stacks tonight. He helps balance the inflated price of his teammates like Corey Seager and Will Smith in Colorado.

New York Yankees – For the Yankees, I would be looking to go back to Rizzo and Urshela who provided value last night, and then paying up to get Aaron Judge as they will be facing another below-average Rangers starter today.

Philadelphia Phillies – When the Phillies are facing a lefty they are worth stacking. We discussed Segura, and I would be adding the usual suspects to him in Bryce Harper and Freddy Galvis.
