*Top hitters and pitchers highlight exceptional matchups that may include stars, lesser-known players and those on your waiver wires.
When I put together my top hitters and pitchers I factor in several things. First, prior matchup history, whether the hitter is hot and the pitcher’s history against that type of batter. Also, these matchups are normally released in the morning so make sure that you double-check the weather leading up to games in case they were postponed or the player got the day off.

Top DFS Pitcher for today:
Adam Wainwright vs. Philadelphia Phillies – In his last outing against the Phillies he went 8 innings, gave up only 1 run and struck out 7. Easiest decision you’ll make when setting the lineup today.
Movie of the Day: The Internship – This movie really got lost in the shuffle last summer. This is a really funny movie and Vaughn and Wilson together is money every time.
