We have nine games today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Juan Soto and the Washington Nationals, taking on Nick Castellanos and the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the San Francisco Giants (6.3), Chicago White Sox (5.9), and the Los Angeles Dodgers (5.6).

The weather looks good across the board today with less than a 20 percent chance of rain for the games today.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 9/25/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherClayton Kershaw $9,800
 First BaseTy France $4,700
 Second BaseTommy La Stella $4,000
 Third Base   
 Short Stop   
 OutfieldKris Bryant $5,400
 OutfieldByron Buxton $4,800

Clayton Kershaw – P ($9,800) – Kershaw has given up just one run in each of his last two starts while striking out 6.5 batters on average over those two games. The Dodgers will likely have him on a pitch count again today, but he should go deep enough to get a chance at a win, and with his strikeout totals, it should be enough for him to be worth his cost.

Ty France– 1B ($4,700) – In France’s last three games he has two multi-hit games and two home runs. The Angels are often a good matchup as their pitching has been in the bottom third of the league all year.

Tommy La Stella– 3B  ($4,000) – Whenever you can get the leadoff hitter for a team in Colorado at this price you should consider it. La Stella had a three-hit night with a home run last night for the Giants and we shouldn’t be surprised if he has a similar performance today.

Kris Bryant – OF  ($5,400) – While Bryant doesn’t have a hit in either of his last two games, that shouldn’t deter you from using a good hitter in a great situation. Bryant is more than capable of providing a few hits tonight in Colorado.

Byron Buxton – OF ($4,800) When Buxton plays he is among the best in baseball. He has a seven-game hit streak, and in his last four games, he has a home run, a steal and two doubles.

The Pitchers

Tyler Anderson ($7,500 DK) In back-to-back starts we have seen Anderson give up just one run while striking out at least five batters. He will face an Angels team that has the lowest slugging percentage in baseball over the last two weeks, and the fourth-lowest batting average in the last two weeks. This is a good opportunity to pay down for Anderson.

Rich Hill ($6,900 DK) – If Hill can make it five innings today we have a great chance at greatly exceeding his value. He is a player who can strike out seven or eight batters in five innings, so him staying in long enough to get the win is all you need on most nights.

Lance Lynn ($9,200 DK) – Lynn has given up just one earned run over his last two starts, while striking out fourteen batters. The White Sox are a heavy favorite tonight, so there is a lot of safety using Lynn in cash games.

The Value Players

Victor Caratini – C  ($2,400) – You will need to check to ensure that Caratini plays today, but he had three hits in his last start, and with him priced near the minimum tonight, you won’t need a lot from him to return value.

Sam Hilliard- OF ($2,500) – Coming into tonight, Hilliard has hits in four straight games, and in those games, he has provided seven hits, a double and a home run. At his price, you won’t need much more than a hit for him to hit value.

Eloy Jiménez- OF ($3,900) – It appears that Jiménez is starting to come around. He has hits in seven of his last nine games, and he hit his first home run in nearly a month just two days ago.

The Stacks

Los Angeles Dodgers – The Dodgers are a deep team, and this is a good matchup. I would be looking to go to Trea Turner, AJ Pollock, and Corey Seager today.

San Francisco Giants – We discussed La Stella and Bryant and I would be looking to add Mike Yastrzemski to them to round out a nice Giants stack in Colorado.

Toronto Blue Jays – The Blue Jays haven’t been hitting a lot lately, but in a GPP that should just enhance them as a target as most players will be spending their budget on other lineups. I would look to stack Marcus Semien with Vlad Guerrero Jr, and Corey Dickerson.
