Fanduel DFS Picks for 8/16 and Picks ATS

Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

A new and fresh week begins Monday with a lighter schedule. A few interesting interdivision battles but none of which have any heavy playoff implications on the line. The best game Monday is in Chicago between the A’s and White Sox, two of the AL’s best teams.

Daily Fantasy Lineup:

P: Cal Quantrill $8500

C/1B: Max Muncy $3600

2B: Brandon Lowe $3600

3B: Wilmer Flores $3000

SS: Dansby Swanson $3400

OF: Charlie Blackmon $3400

OF: Cody Bellinger $3500

OF: Connor Joe $2900

UTIL: Jesus Aguilar $3000

Los Angeles Angels @ New York Yankees 7:05 PM ET

Suarez (5-5) vs Cole (10-6)

Yankees ACE Garrit Cole makes his return from the COVID list at a time when the Yankees are playing some of their best baseball of the season. Take the Yankees.

Pick: Yankees -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

David Fletcher (2B)

Garritt Cole (SP)

Aaron Judge (OF)

DJ LeMahieu (1B/2B)

Chicago Cubs @ Cincinnati Reds 7:10 PM ET

Steele (2-1) vs Miley (9-4)

The Cubs have lost 11 straight and take on the Reds who are inching closer to a wild card spot. The Reds should easily make this 12 losses in a row for the Cubs.

Pick: Reds -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Frank Schwindel (1B)

Wade Miley (SP)

Jonathan India (2B/3B)

Joey Votto (1B)

Baltimore Orioles @ Tampa Bays Rays 7:10 PM ET

Harvey (6-11) vs McHugh (4-1)

The Orioles, like the Cubs, have also lost 11 straight games. The Rays having won 7of 10 and one of baseball’s best home teams in baseball should make this 12 losses in a row for the O’s.

Pick: Rays -1.5

Daily Fantasy picks:

Cedric Mullins (OF)

Trey Mancini (1B/OF)

Wander Franco (SS)

Brandon Lowe (2B/OF)

Atlanta Braves @ Miami Marlins 7:10 PM ET

Toussaint (1-2) vs Garrett (1-1)

Two promising young starters face off in this interdivision matchup where both teams are coming off series sweeps. This should come down to the bullpens as both starters, although pitch well, don’t go deep into games.

Pick: Braves Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Dansby Swanson (SS)

Austin Riley (3B)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Lewis Brinson (OF)

Houston Astro’s @ Kansas City Royals 8:10 PM ET

Odoizzi (5-6) vs Hernandez (3-1)

Carlos Hernandez has been a pleasant surprise for the Royals, going 3 straight starts without allowing more than 1 run in each. Jake Odorizzi is coming off a solid start as well. KC has lost 4 straight and Houston’s lineup might be a bit too much for Hernandez.

Pick: Astros Win, under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Jose Altuve (2B)

Kyle Tucker (OF)

Salvador Perez (C)

Whit Merrifield (2B)

Cleveland Indians @ Minnesota Twins 8:10 PM ET

Quantrill (3-2) vs Jax (3-1)

Cal Quantrill continues to be one of baseballs best pitchers the last two months and tonights matchup in Minnesota should be no different. On the other hand, Griffin Jax has been great for the Twins and is coming off a 10K outing in his last start. I like a close on and the under.

Pick: Under

Daily Fantasy picks:

Cal Quantrill (SP)

Jose Ramirez (3B)

Griffin Jax (SP)

Jorge Polanco (2B/SS)

Oakland Athletics @ Chicago White Sox 8:10 PM ET

Montas (9-8) vs Keuchel (7-6)

Both teams are coming off series losses, but the A’s have been the hotter team of late. Frankie Montas has 3 straight quality starts while Dallas Keuchel has given up 4 or more runs in 3 of his last 4 outings. I’m taking the underdog A’s.

Pick: A’s win 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ian Happ (OF)

Jesus Aguilar (1B)

Lewis Brinson (OF)

San Diego Padres @ Colorado Rockies 8:40 PM ET

TBD vs Senzatela (2-9)

The Rockies are happy to be home where they play much better baseball, almost night and day. The Padres are suddenly fighting to keep a hold on the second wild card spot but get Fernando Tatis back. I would take the Padres offense in this one.

Pick: Padres Win

Daily Fantasy picks:

Fernando Tatis (SS)

Jake Cronenworth (2B)

Charlie Blackmon (OF)

Connor Joe (1B/OF)

New York Mets @ San Francisco Giants 9:45 PM ET

Hill (6-4) vs Gausman (11-5)

Although Kevin Gausman has struggled the second half, the Giants are simply too good, winning 8 of 10 and holding a firm lead on baseballs best record. The Mets just lost 3 straight to the Dodgers and 7 of 10 and now travel out West. Take the Giants.

Pick: Giants -1.5 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Pete Alonso (1B)

Kris Bryant (3B/OF)

Buster Posey (C/1B)

Wilmer Flores (3B)

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Los Angeles Dodgers 10:10 PM ET 

Brault (0-1) vs TBD

The Dodgers just won 3 straight in New York over the Mets and 8 of their last 10. The head home after a long road trip to take on the Pirates who have lost 9 of 10. No matter who the Dodgers choose to start, they should win this one easily.

Pick: Dodgers -1.5 

Daily Fantasy picks:

Ke’Bryan Hayes (3B)

Max Muncy (1B)

Cody Bellinger (OF)

Corey Seager (SS)
