Clayton Kershaw (at SF) – Kershaw has been enjoying a historic season, although it has been shortened by an injury. He has a 12-3 record with a 1.65 ERA and a 10.7 K/9 through 20 starts. He has dominated essentially everyone he has pitched against, including the Giants, who he will be throwing against today. The Giants have struggled quite a bit since the All Star Break, but they are playing for the playoffs right now. Kershaw has thrown against them in four matchups this season, and he can be used in all leagues today.

Tyler Skaggs (vs HOU) – Skaggs has been an up and down starter this season, as he has either looked elite or awful. He has dominated in five of his starts this season, but he struggled in the other four. He gets a great matchup against the Astros tonight, and they are a team that strikes out quite a bit. Skaggs will also be playing in an extremely pitcher friendly stadium, and this game is set at 8.5 runs. He’s still available in 89% of leagues on Yahoo, and he’s a boom or bust streaming option on this slate.

Bartolo Colon (at PHI) – Colon is coming off a terrible start, and there is word that he is dealing with an injury. His start may be pushed back to Sunday, but the Mets are playing to get into the playoffs, so they may opt to start him today. He has a 14-8 record with an impressive 3.42 ERA and a 5.9 K/9 on the season. His strikeout rate is worrisome, but he has the ability to pitch deep into games, and he gets a great matchup against the Phillies today. He’s available in 34% of leagues on Yahoo, and he’s a great option on this slate.

Colby Lewis (vs TB) – Lewis is an interesting prospect on this slate. He hasn’t been dominant for the Rangers this season, but he also hasn’t looked terrible. Through 18 starts, he has a 6-4 record with a 3.93 ERA and a 5/7 K/9. Lewis gets a great matchup against the Rays, who have struggled to score runs since the trade deadline. He possesses solid upside, but his strikeout rate is a bit of a problem. He’s available in 70% of leagues at Yahoo, and he’s a solid option on the slate tonight.

Jharel Cotton (at SEA) – Cotton has looked great in limited starts this season. He has a 2-0 record with a 1.44 ERA and a 5.8 K/9 through four starts. He has displayed good upside, but he has also been a consistent pitcher. He has the ability to pitch deep into games, and he gets a great matchup against the Mariners in a pitcher friendly stadium. Cotton should be able to return value in DFS, as he comes with a cheap price tag, and he’s also available in 74% of leagues on Yahoo. He’s a great streaming option tonight.
