Today's MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Monday, June 10

SP: Charlie Morton, Rays vs. A's. Morton is a great option tonight as he has strong strikeout upside in a matchup the Rays are favored to win. It also helps that Mortion has dominated this year, going 7-0 with a 2.30 ERA and 91 strikeouts over 74.1 innings.

C: Brian McCann, Braves vs. Pirates. McCann is always a solid option given the price point and upside in the Braves lineup. McCann is hitting .284 with three home runs and an OPS of .763. In his past two starts he has collected four hits in eight at-bats.

1B: Josh Bell, Pirates @ Braves. Bell is slowing down a bit here, hitting just .260 with one home run over his past 10 games. Despite the current struggles I can see him having a solid night against a bad Kevin Gausman, who is 2-5 with a 6.15 ERA.

2B: DJ LeMahieu, Yankees vs. Mets DJLM is hitting .356 with an OPS of 1.040 over the past 10 games. Against LHP this season, LeMahieu is hitting .347 with an OPS of .906. Are we really going to trust that Jason Vargas is going to be shutting out teams on the regular right now?

SS: Corey Seager, Dodgers @ Angels. Seager is smoking it right now, hitting .462 with five doubles and one home run over the past week. He was once a .300 hitter with 20-plus HR upside but injuries have slowed him down. He is looking healthy and worth the price.

3B: Kris Bryant, Cubs @ Rockies. If not paying up for Nolan Arenado it makes sense to pay for Bryant to get that Coors exposure. Bryant is off to a slow start to the month of June, but he exploded during May, hitting .333 with an OPS of 1.162.

OF: Kevin Kiermaier, Rays vs. A's. Good value play tonight to get exposure to the Rays lineup. He has some home run and stolen base upside, which is great in DFS.
