Strasburg ($12.4K at DK) the "obvious" choice for pitchers. He'll be a popular pick and will probably pitch well. (Nats huge favs and he's 2-0 against the Braves this season, 15-2 with 169 K's overall.) I've used him in one of my two lineups but avoided him in the other, instead backing a pair of left-handed hitting Braves who have each taken him deep in the past. 

Which lineup (if any) do you guys think has the better chance of going off? 

GRAY/SANCHEZ/GATTIS/FREEMAN/FORSYTHE/LONGORIA/CORREA/INCIARTE/SPRINGER/TROUT

STRASBURG/MANEA/VOGT/CARTER/PHILLIPS/FRAZIER/IGLESIAS/BRAUN/DAVIS/DUVALL

Strasburg is easily the best option on the bump tonight, but he has to get ahead in counts and keep the Braves off-balanced. Atlanta doesn't strike out a ton (7.5 per game, which ranks Top 10 best in the league) but they are really a bad road team.

I don't play at DraftKings anymore, only a Fanduel player. I prefer the single pitcher option.

I'm going with:

P Strasburg

C Rupp

1B Gonzalez

2B Forsythe

3B A-Rod

SS Bogaerts

OF Stanton

OF Ozuna

OF Weeks Jr.

Thanks for the post Brandon. Looks like we're both pulling for Forsythe. I like FD too (have attended and competed in most of their live finals the past couple of years) but am playing more at DK of late, partly in preparation for WFBC (Toronto) coming up later this month ...

And good luck to you, sir. Longoria is the right play at third for BvP, seeing as he has owned Sabathia in the past, but Fanduel has A-Rod at $696 tonight and that's a must start in my opinion. Forsythe has been hot lately and hits .300 on the road, plus he has beat up on Sabathia (8-of-18, 2 HRs) as well, so I think he's the best option at second tonight.

Strasburg flat out doesn't have it tonight. He will be lucky to throw five innings.
