Before setting your MLB DFS lineups for daily Fantasy sites like DraftKings and FanDuel on Thursday, August 5, you NEED to see the top MLB DFS picks from Scott Engel. Engel is a daily Fantasy pro and an inaugural member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association's Hall of Fame.

SportsLine's Engel is a prime source to consult for DFS success. Engel has been a premier analyst and Fantasy personality for 25 years. He is a four-time FSWA Award Winner and 10-time nominee, including winning an FSWA award for Best Fantasy Baseball Series.

On Wednesday, Engel included Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson in his player pool on both FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Swansby went 4-for-4 with three runs scored and a stolen base to return 27.6 points on FD and 23 points on DK. Anybody who followed that pick was well on their way to a profitable day.

One of Engel's top MLB DFS picks for Thursday is Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton at $4,300 on DraftKings and $3,400 on FanDuel. Part of Engel's optimal MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Blue Jays outfielder George Springer ($5,500 on DraftKings, $4,200 on FanDuel), who has five multi-hit games during a current seven-game hitting streak where he's 15-for-29 with four home runs and 11 RBIs. 

Engel is also targeting a player who is set to EXPLODE for huge numbers on Thursday! The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value, and he comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing!
