Flaherty vs. Milwaukee Brewers
$10,500 FD / $10,800 DK
There a several great pitchers taking the mound on this 9/14
MLB DFS slate but none in a better position to dominate than Flaherty tonight.
The Brewers are striking out 25.3 percent of the time versus RHPs while batting
.221 over the last seven days. With Christian Yelich out for the season this
lineup looks a lot less scary facing a pitcher who has only allowed seven
earned runs in his last 11 starts with 95 strikeouts over 78 1/3 innings.
vs. Kansas City Royals
$9,700 FD / $9,300 DK
When comparing pricing to upside on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate, Greinke finds himself at the top of my model. Although the Royals are only striking out 21.7 percent of the time facing RHPs, they do have a low .313 wOBA. Meanwhile, Zack has been on the attack as usual, only allowing more than two earned runs in two of his last 10 starts, going at least six innings in eight of them. All the numbers point to the Royals being completely shut down tonight.
vs. Miami Marlins
$9,900 FD / $8,900 DK
This play is a complete fade for me on FanDuel at $9,900, but 100 percent in play at $8,900 on DK. This 9/14 MLB DFS slate is tricky salary wise, and one on which I would give serious consideration to Mad Bum as an SP1 on DK. The Marlins swim near the bottom of the league versus LHPs sporting a .304 wOBA and pathetic wRC+ of 88. With severe home/road splits favoring Bumgarner at home, combined with a bevy of solid starts going six innings or more, this one is a gem.
Kelly vs. Cincinnati Reds
$7,300 FD / $7,800 DK
Looking for a GPP play on FD? How about a SP2 on DK? Luckily
for you I have found you the answer on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate, and his name is
Merrill Kelly. In an odd turn of events taking ballpark factors into
consideration Kelly is currently posting a 3.50 home ERA opposed to his 5.89
road ERA. With the Reds striking out 24.2 percent of the time versus RHPs while
sporting a wRC+ of 81 over the last seven days, Kelly is where I am looking.
Glasnow vs. Los Angeles Angels
$8,200 FD / $5,000 DK
Obviously with the pitch count for Glasnow highly in question on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate he is a complete fade for me on FD. But oh boy, look at the price on DK. My hope here is that he makes it about three-to-four innings netting 12 or more fantasy points, facing an Angels team batting .212 over the last seven days.
Obviously on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate Coors Field is going to be highly targeted, so here are some other options if you were to go a different route.
vs. Houston Astros
The Houston Astros are the number one offense in MLB facing LHPs. They are posting a .370 wOBA with a wRC+ of 135, while only striking out 17.9 percent of the time (the lowest in MLB). Although Monty’s home/road splits are severe favoring home, he has allowed five earned runs in two of this last four starts. Facing this team, he is going to get blown up on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate.
Jose Altuve has a .474 wOBA versus LHPs with a wRC+
of 227. He is also 3-for-5 with a home run and 3 RBI versus Montgomery.
George Springer has five home runs and 11 RBI over
the last seven days while posting a .379 wOBA versus LHPs.
Abraham Toro comes at a low salary and gives you some
cheap exposure to the Astros bats tonight.
Cease vs. Seattle Mariners
The Mariners have been less than impressive facing RHPs this season, and the .307 wOBA shows it. There will be some people on this 9/14 MLB DFS slate who will argue Cease makes a nice GPP play. Well, this is also the case the other way. Dylan has not been chillin’, allowing 13 earned runs in his last 12 innings. Attack, Attack, Attack!
Daniel Vogelbach has been colder than a Massachusetts day in January, batting .118 over the last seven. Regardless he still carries a .363 wOBA versus RHPs, making this a perfect game to break out of the slump.
Kyle Seager makes a nice option tonight with Nolan Arenado being tops at third. He is also in a prime spot for a breakout game, batting .158 over the last seven days.
Omar Narvaez has a .352 wOBA versus RHPs with a wRC+ of 124. He is batting in the cleanup spot most nights and makes a fine play at the catcher position.

With Milwaukee striking out over 25 percent of the time
versus RHPs, and Flaherty striking out eight or more batters in three of his
last five starts, I am going with the over here.
In Lyles’ last five starts he has only struck out five or more batters once. With the Cardinals being on the lower end of strikeouts versus RHPs, I am on the under all day.
