FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Picks: September 21

Monday means a lighter baseball slate, but that doesn't stop the wonderful world of DFS from pressing on.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The home stretch is upon us, and the grand stretch of the calendar that features baseball on a daily basis will be gone soon. As a result, we must take advantage of the time we still have, and that means some good, old-fashioned DFS talk on this fine Monday.

SB Nation and FanDuel continue to partner on daily fantasy baseball, and we regularly bring you "recommended" lineups. Today, we will break out a winning (we hope) group for the evening slate, and hopefully, things will go well.

Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is hosting a $100,000 one-day fantasy baseball league today. It's $3 to join and first place wins $8,000. Enter now!

As usual, fading my picks may be your best option, so if you do that, I won't be offended in the slightest.

Note: This lineup would be used in a 7:05 pm ET contest.

P - Chris Archer ($12,000)

C - Yasmani Grandal ($2,200)

1B - Pedro Alvarez ($3,000)

2B - Neil Walker ($3,400)

3B - Aramis Ramirez ($3,500)

SS - Corey Seager ($3,100)

OF - Dexter Fowler ($3,100)

OF - Cameron Maybin ($2,400)

OF - Andre Ethier ($2,200)

I'm spending big on starting pitching on Monday, and that means taking Chris Archer over Dallas Keuchel and David Price. For me, Archer has the best match-up and the highest upside, and that is a difficult combination to beat.

In the lineup, I have a few stacks working. Left-handed members of the Pittsburgh Pirates are intriguing against a right-hander in Coors Field, which justifies the inclusion of Alvarez and Walker. Throw in Aramis Ramirez and his (cheap) power for the third member of the trio.

Elsewhere, I like left-handed Dodgers quite a bit as well. Corey Seager is already a stud at shortstop, and the Grandal/Ethier combo is beautiful at its price point. Round things out with hometown favorite Cameron Maybin and Dexter Fowler in platoon-based nods and we're complete.

The slogan, as always, is to simply make money, and this lineup can (hopefully) help you get there. Let's do this together.
