MLB DFS: Best DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, lineup advice for Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022

Why Aaron Judge's home run-filled 2022 season is even more impressive than it seems


A pair of rookies powered the Baltimore Orioles to a 8-1 win against Detroit on Wednesday, and when constructing MLB DFS lineups on Thursday, they could serve as under-utilized secret weapons. Adley Rutschman, who has been a regular in the lineup as a catcher and designated hitter since July, has hits in six of his last eight games and was batting .308 ahead of Wednesday, when he knocked in two runs. Meanwhile, outfielder Kyle Stowers had the game he had been waiting for since being called up in mid-August and went 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored.

The Orioles return to action on Thursday in a new series against the Houston Astros and a tough pitching matchup against Justin Verlander, who left after three innings in his August 28 start against the Orioles (calf). Rutschman was able to take a hit from one of the two at-bats he had against Verlander. But he has extra value in the MLB DFS player pool as he has hit .286 with four home runs and 18 RBI in his first at-bats against relief pitchers this season. Before making your MLB DFS picks for Thursday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

The result: Crawford went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI single to return 12 points on DraftKings and 15.7 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
