Pitchers

Walker Buehler, LAD (DK $11,500)

Buehler turned in his best start of the season last time out when he faced the Diamondbacks and went 7.1 innings, allowed two earned runs, and struck out 11. Over the last two weeks, no team has a higher strikeout rate than the Chicago Cubs. Chicago has been very boom or bust of late with a low wOBA, low walk rate, but a respectable ISO. Buehler should ride his momentum into this home start.

Luis Garcia, HOU (DK $8,700)

Outside of Jonathan Schoop, few Tigers have hit well this season, especially of late. Detroit has a 25 percent K rate in their last two weeks and Garcia has burst onto the scene for the Astros posting 22 or more DK points in five of his last six starts. 

Chad Kuhl, PIT (DK $6,900)

With not much appealing in the low range for pitching on Thursday, Kuhl stands out as an option worth taking a shot on against the Cardinals. St. Louis has the second-lowest ISO over the past two weeks while posting just a .261 wOBA and sub-eight percent walk rate.
