Our Optimal Lineup tool sees plenty of value in the Giants-Dodgers game tonight, as the reigning champion Dodgers seek to chip away at the Giants' NL West division lead in the second of a three-game series in L.A. If Julio Urias starts as planned, he represents a great opportunity for DFS managers looking to roster Dodgers coming off a tough loss to a bitter rival. Similarly, LA sluggers Will SmithMax Muncy, Justin Turner and Mookie Betts are all solid plays for tonight's evening DFS slate as well.
