Stephen Strasburg, Nationals at Diamondbacks ($11,000 FD, $11,600 DK): We have seen the humidor-influenced impacts of Chase Field all season long (26th in adjusted to normal runs scored, 28th in HRs) and Strasburg is in a great spot to take advantage of this in 8/3 MLB DFS. He is on the best stretch of his career, having won seven consecutive starts. He was simply awesome in July, going 5-0 with a 1.14 ERA with 44 strikeouts and only seven walks. If you can afford bats around him, he is a fine choice as a cash-game pitcher.
Walker Buehler, Padres at Dodgers ($11,400 FD, $10,900 DK): Look for the Dodgers to get back into the “W” column tonight and Buehler to be a big part of that. The Padres are a team you can pick on with righties. They are among the league leaders in strikeouts on the season and are likely to add onto that total tonight. Just like Strasburg, if you can afford him, Buehler is an excellent cash-game choice.
Marcus Stroman, Mets at Pirates ($9,000 FD, $9,600 DK): Stroman is making his Mets debut tonight. Don’t let the Pirates getting to Matz last night scare you off of Stroman in 8/3 MLB DFS. The Pirates are still a bad offensive, and overall,baseball team that is completely tanking since the All-Star Break. PNC is a great park to pitch in and the Mets are likely to make it eight wins out of nine games tonight. They are smack dab in the middle of the wild-card hunt and Stroman will likely be a big part of their success or failure getting it. A worthwhile cash-game choice.
Mike Fiers, Cardinals at Athletics ($$8,200 FD, $8,000 DK): The Cardinals are not very good against righties. The Athletics home park is great for pitchers. This seems like a good 8/3 MLB DFS combination for Fiers tonight. Probably a little risky for cash-games but a fine GPP choice in my book.

Let’s go to Coors Field here in 8/3 MLB DFS. Both Madison Bumgarner ($7,500 FD, $7,600 DK) and Jon Gray ($7,200 FD, $7,800 DK) are capable of pitching well at Coors. I know there is the philosophy of never using pitchers at Coors but Gray is proving that wrong this season and Bumgarner has dome that in the past. Certainly only GPP options in my opinion.
