FanDuel & DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks for Monday, September 26 – The Starting 5

The Starting 5: Featuring pitcher and hitter MLB DFS picks for FanDuel & DraftKings cash game lineups on Monday, September 26 (9/26).

Sharing articles with picks and advice to help you build winning MLB line-ups on FanDuel (FD) and DraftKings (DK).

The Starting 5 features 2 pitchers (1 stud, 1 with upside) and 3 batters (1 stud, 1 mid-range, 1 bargain bin). We post it for every day of the 2016 MLB season, with a focus on both FanDuel and DraftKings options for cash game play.

First of all – we would like to take a moment to acknowledge the tragic incident that occurred recently, as Jose Fernandez passed away. It is a complete shock to us all at Fantasy Cruncher and is a reminder of just how incredibly precious life is. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Fernandez family, his friends, the Marlins organization and all of baseball during this difficult time.

Manning the Mound

Stud SP to Target: Kyle Hendricks, CHC

On this small slate I am locking in the best pitcher on the board in Hendricks. Hendricks has been lights out all season long and has not allowed more than two runs in 23 of his 28 starts. Hendricks leads the majors in ERA at 2.06 and is also sporting a WHIP of just 0.96. With the Pirates not being a great hitting team, Hendricks should cruise once again tonight while easily picking up the win as a nice sized -150 favorite.

Upside SP to Target: Corey Kluber, CLE

This slate is weird that my pitcher with upside also happens to be the most expensive player on the slate. The reason why I only have Kluber as having upside instead of my top option is due to the match-up. The Tigers are one of the best hitting team in the majors against right-handed pitching. With that being said Kluber by far has the most strikeout upside on this slate as he has at least seven strikeouts in 13 of his past 14 starts.

The Batter’s Box

Stud Bat to Target: OF Ryan Braun, MIL

Braun against a bad left-handed pitcher is a match-up I lust over. Braun has just dominated left-handed pitching this season with an OPS of 1.035, an ISO of .270 and a wOBA of .425. Braun who has hits in six of his past seven games should easily have a huge day at the plate.

Mid-Range Bat to Target: 3B/SS Jose Reyes, NYM

I wish I didn’t have to write up Reyes today as he shouldn’t be an option tonight. Due to the tragic death of Jose Fernandez which I am still having trouble believing he is in play against the left-handed Adam Conley. Conley will be on a pitch limit tonight but even in only two or three at bats against Conley, Reyes should dominate. Reyes against left-handed pitching this season is slashing .375/.455/.750 with an ISO of .375 and a wOBA of .494.

Bargain Bin Bat to Target: 2B/OF Jake Elmore

Elmore is not a very good hitter but he is decent against lefties and dirt cheap. He is minimum priced on FanDuel at a thin second base position and only $2,700 on DraftKings in the outfield. What I really like about Elmore is the match-up against Martin Perez who is allowing right-handed hitters to slug .419 with a .332 wOBA.

About Zach Qualtieri

Zach is a 7-time winner of a large field GPP and has a cash rate over 65% in cash games for his career. He is one of the top ranked analysts across all platforms, specializing in NBA and NFL. When not playing or writing about fantasy sports, he enjoys spending time with his 7 year old son.
