Whats going on DFS Champions? We have some great match ups for the Aug. 18th, 7:05pm ET (Main Slate) on FanDuel. Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals will be playing in Coors Field, and Clayton Kershaw is on the bump in Oakland. So without further ado, lets tap into The Wagner Wire. Pitcher - Clayton Kershaw $13,400 Its no surprise that Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.39) is the highest pitcher for tonight's slate. Priced at $13,400, Kershaw is worth every bit of it. Say bye to your FanDuel budget, but he is hurling against the A's at the Coliseum. The A's have been struggling at plate. They're hitting just .239 as a team, with an OPS of only .692 in August. With these numbers and
Author : Nick Rodriguez Pitcher Rankings Cash Games 1. Clayton Kershaw Kershaw has just been very dominant since after the All-Star break and I don't think he is slowing down tonight. Kershaw has an ERA OF 0.00 since the All-Star break and opponents are hitting .099 against him during that stretch. 2. Jacob deGrom deGrom is another great option on the hill and is cheaper than Kershaw. Jacob will be facing the Rays who rank 4th in strike outs this season. Jacob has an ERA of 1.83 since the All-Star break and holding opponents to a .159 AVG. 3. Jose Fernandez Fernandez has looked great since returning from Tommy John surgery with an ERA of 2.13. He is always a great option with his high strike out potential.

What is up fantasy champions? We're playing the 7:05 pm ET slate today. We have another fantastic lineup for you tonight. With the MLB trade deadline quickly approaching, key players have been on the move and it appears more are to come. I love Cargo tonight, but the Rockies are adamant on dealing him before Friday. Keep this in mind tonight as you pick your DFS lineup. You don't want to draft a player that gets dealt and can't score you any points. Infielder - Prince Fielder $ $3,900 Prince has awesome numbers against Capuano (0-4, 5.64), hitting .364, with 2 HRs and an OPS of 1.364. Prince has had an a great season, reemerging as one of the best hitters in MLB. Outfielder
What is up fantasy champions? We're playing the 1:05 pm ET slate today. I think there is going to be plenty of souvenirs hit to right field in the "Boogie Down Bronx". Keeping that in mind, we're favoring the Orioles and Yanks in the lineup, but we have some Tigers that are must plays! Infielder - Stephen Vogt $2,700 Vogt has a favorable matchup today against Dickey (3-10, 4.70) in Oakland. With the wind blowing out 10 mph and the lefty v righty matchup, Vogt is primed for a monster day! Outfielder - Yoenis Cespedes $3,400 Cespedes will face Iwakuma (2-1 4.89) today at Comerica Park. Yoenis sees Iwakuma well, owning a career avg of .407, an OPS of 1.444, with 4 HRs. We think Cespedes puts up
