FanDuel Friday: Betting on Astros' Keuchel at home

What a great Friday for some juicy playoff matchups.

There's Blue Jays-Yankees, Pirates-Mets and Angels-Royals just to name a few. 

That means everyone will be bringing their "A" game. But will it be the stars who shine or the role players that make the biggest impact in your lineup tonight?

The CSN Fantasy crew share their FanDuel lineups below for tonight's action.

As always, good luck:

John "The Professor" Paschall

So Keuchel is 10-0 with a 1.26 ERA at home this year. I don't think I need to say much more.

Thirteen of Gattis' 17 home runs this season have come against right-handed pitching. You've been warned, Alfredo Simon. 

I went with some Royals' lefties tonight against Jered Weaver, who is just not his old self. Both sluggers hit MUCH better against righties than lefties. 

Puig is my value pick of the week. It seems like he's slowly starting to get into a groove at the plate when the Dodgers really need him and he's facing a rookie pitcher tonight at home. Advantage: Puig

Lindor (14 hits in last eight games), Braun (six hits last two games) and Bradley Jr. (five hits last three games) are all scorching hot coming into tonight with matchups against pitchers that don't scare me.
