This season, I plan to focus on the DraftKings small slates typical for Thursdays. We start with an interesting four-game slate. One starting pitcher from each game immediately caught my eye. Top on my list is Robbie Ray ($8,300) with his excellent high strikeout potential. Rounding out the pitching options are Joe Musgrove ($7,000), Marcus Stroman ($8,700) and Matt Harvey ($8,100). I like Musgrove the best of those three.
On the hitting side, the Astros right-handed stack looks promising on the short slate with Jose Altuve ($4,900), Alex Bregman ($4,000), Carlos Correa ($4,800) and George Springer ($4,500). The other hitter who caught my attention is Jake Lamb at $4,100.
