Ben’s Daily MLB DraftKings Plays – 9/2/23

Ben's MLB Daily DraftKings Plays


What’s up, 4Deep!? Another big slate (11 games) on our hands with plenty of pitchers and stacks to choose from, so it should be a good one! Not much to love on the value side of pitching, so finding value hitters will be extremely important tonight for my builds.


  1. Blake Snell DK $11,300 – Snell dominated this team earlier in the year and I’m expecting more of the same here.  Top option on the slate if spending up.
  2. Luis Castillo DK $11,100 – I think Snell has more upside, but I will continue to target this Mets team.  They are not good and pitchers are having ceiling games against them.
  3. Mike Clevinger DK $8,000 – Had his best game of the season for us his last start and now gets a soft matchup against the Tigers.  Clevinger’s velocity is up, which is increasing his strikeouts and turning him back into the stud he once was. My favorite SP2 tonight.
  4. Yusei Kikuchi DK $7,500 – I know this didn’t work out last night, but Kikuchi is a better pitcher than Ryu and I have him projected for 6-8 Ks in this one.  At that price, he is way too cheap and I will definitely be having some exposure.
  5. Honorable Mention: Monty


  1. Mariners – We need Julio in here as he’s the heart of this offense. Peterson is not good and I love this lineup against lefties. Crawford, Julio, Suarez, and Hernandez are the core of the stack, then using one of the 6-8 hitters for value is the way to go.
  2. Astros – Is Severino back!? We will find out tonight as he goes up against this loaded Astros lineup.  I think he gets lit up. Tucker, Alvarez, Altuve, and Abreu are my favorites.
  3. Rangers – This is a gift given to us by the fantasy Gods. Keuchel. He barely survived against this team last time out and I think they get the best of him here. 1-6 are all in play and I like Tavares in the 9 spot as well.
  4. Blue Jays – Blue Jays in Coors in the nuts spot, if making multiple teams you have to have them somewhere. All the righty bats are in play with Schnieder, Vlad, Springer, and Jansen all looking great. 
  5. Braves – We got the Braves at single digit ownership last night and they didn’t disappoint. 1-9 all in play here with Olson being my top play.
