After an exciting weekend of action, Major League Baseball returns for a lighter slate of games on Monday, August 24. With just one week to go before players can no longer be traded through waivers, fans of playing in MLB DFS leagues are anxiously awaiting the September call-ups. For now, however, Heists And Homers is here to help you select players from the 10 games scheduled for Monday.
In terms of the day and night’s top starting pitchers are concerned, Corey Kluber and Jacob de Grom are the two most expensive options. They are also the only two players priced higher than $10,000. You could draft both of them but, it will cost you close to half of your daily salary. That is why you may wish to continue reading to find some cheaper alternatives.
As for building a complete lineup, having just 10 games to choose from instead of the usual 15 means that you may have to dig a bit deeper down the payroll list to find a few value picks. Without the Toronto Blue Jays playing, it means that you may have to scramble at a few positions, after seemingly being able to plug and play so many hitters from the new A.L. East leaders.
Either way, best of luck!
