There’s a two-game MLB DFS playoff slate Thursday that starts at 5:05 p.m. ET. I plan on doing three lineups on this slate; below is the cheat sheet and focus for me.

In case you missed it, I wrote a tournament primer and a deeper dive into MLB DFS. You can check both to understand what I do every day and night. I’ll start with starting pitchers before going through stacks and other favorite plays.

Starting pitcher

I honestly don’t like any of Thursday’s pitchers except Kershaw. I’d lock him in and hedge a lineup with one pitcher for every lineup. This means you should do three lineups and don’t stack against your SP (one-offs against your starting pitcher are OK).
