FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Will Smith sitting for Dodgers' matinee Thursday

Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Johnny Cueto and the San Francisco Giants.

What It Means:

Smith is taking a seat after starting the last three games and six of the last seven. Austin Barnes is catching for David Price in Thursday's matinee and hitting eighth.

numberFire’s models project Barnes for 7.7 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Dodgers have an implied total of 4.4 runs. Cueto's walk percentage this season (4.6) is the best rate among Thursday's listed starters and ranks in the top sixth percent of the league.
