If you have any questions or comments about this article or fantasy baseball, please Tweet me @dynasty_digest. I post daily DFS lineups for Draft Kings everyday, so please make sure to follow my blog (dynastydigest.sportsblog.com) and my Twitter for updates.
P- Matt Harvey (vs. Washington Nationals): $9,700. Harvey has really struggled this year, but Thursday could be the day that Harvey comes out of his slump. In 134 career at bats against Harvey, the Nationals lineup is batting .209, with only 9 RBIs, and a .271 OBP. Harvey’s price has dropped significantly due to his regression, but this could be time to buy him when he is low. Staying away from the incredibly expensive pitchers (Chris Sale, Stephen Strasburg, etc) has helped my offensive lineup for Friday.
P- Marco Estrada (vs. Minnesota Twins): $8,100. Estrada has been lights out in 2016. In 43.2 innings pithed, he has a 2.89 ERA, 41 strikeouts, and 18 walks. He will be facing a struggling Twins lineup on Friday, so this should be a great matchup for Estrada. In 62 career at bats versus Estrada, the Twins lineup is batting .226, with 12 strikeouts, and a .294 OBP.

I already posted my original lineup for April 19th, but a few of my followers wanted a lineup surrounding more value picks (Logan Verrett) when it came down to potential arms. With that said, I will call this my “value arms” lineup for today.

P- Logan Verrett (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $5,600. This could be a great bargain buy. Verrett is dirt cheap and he is facing a dirt lineup. By dirt, I mean terrible. The Phillies have the 23rd best offense in Major League Baseball. They are striking out about 29% of the time, so this bodes well for some easy points for Verrett, who has 7 strikeouts in 7 innings this year. In his only start this season, Verrett dominated the Miami Marlins over 6 innings giving up only 3 hits, walking 2, and striking out 6. At this price point, Verrett opens up your entire lineup for some elite bats.
P- Ervin Santana (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,000. Santana doesn’t have much history against the Brewers, but can they really be that difficult to get out? They are currently the 26th best offense in baseball and Santana is a crafty veteran. I’m strictly playing a match-up here and hoping Santana can take care of a less than mediocre offense.
