Daily Fantasy MLB Pitchers for FanDuel & DraftKings 10/1/16 Welcome to our new daily article breaking down some of the other pitching targets on this slate. We covered our system's top value plays in our daily picks article but here we will look at other dudes to consider. In case you didn’t notice, on Saturday we released our brand new NFL DFS suite of tools including full projections, optimal NFL lineups and Player Lab which includes filters to help you create NFL lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings. It’s a robust set of tools; well beyond anything we’ve ever had and something we feel will help our users *ahem* tackle the NFL season. SIGN UP NOW! A quick heads up - we post an updates article every day in the early afternoon, EST, to catch everyone up on how things are changing as a result of whatever news has come through. We also have great talks in the comments of that article. Hope to see you there! Pitching Targets Note: We discussed Jon Lester and Michael Wacha in the Main Article and will be going over a few more options below. Pitching Targets Clayton Kershaw FD 10700 DK 13800 Opponent - SF (Suarez) Park - @SFFD - 33.72 DK - 22.44 Happy Kershaw Day everyone! I mean do I really have to explain this pick? You already know the drill, right? You don't! Ugh, I guess I'll go ahead and give you a little recap about Kershaw. Kershaw has been one of the most, if not the most dominant pitcher in baseball over the last few seasons. He's an absolute force when on the mound and has the highest ceiling. He's that good! The matchup isn't the best against the Giants, but it's Kershaw were talking about! He will be pitching at pitcher-friendly AT&T Park, and isn't too expensive. If your playing cash games, you know where to start. Hisashi Iwakuma FD 8000 DK 8200 Opponent - OAK (Cotton) Park - @SEAFD - 31.19 DK - 20.41 Hisashi Iwakuma is at an excellent price-point, has a great matchup and has had a solid season. What more could you ask for? Eh, maybe a million dollars, but if were talking about selecting a DFS pitcher, he's one of the best SP2 out there tonight! He'll be going up against an A's squad that he's had success against this season. He's delivered a quality start in three out of the four outings against them. Not only does he have their number, but they have also been cold. In their last 14 contest, they possess a .278 wOBA (27th in MLB), 74 wRC+ (26th in MLB) and .144 ISO (21st in MLB). Iwakuma...

Daily Fantasy MLB Hitter Stacks FanDuel & DraftKings 10/1/16

Daily Fantasy MLB Hitter Stacks FanDuel & DraftKings 10/1/16 Welcome to our daily article breaking down some of the other stacking targets on this slate. We covered our system's top value plays in our daily picks article and pitching breakdown but here we will look at other dudes to consider. In case you didn’t notice, on Saturday we released our brand new NFL DFS suite of tools including full projections, optimal NFL lineups and Player Lab which includes filters to help you create NFL lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings. It’s a robust set of tools; well beyond anything we’ve ever had and something we feel will help our users *ahem* tackle the NFL season. SIGN UP NOW! A quick heads up - we post an updates article every day in the early afternoon, EST, to catch everyone up on how things are changing as a result of whatever news has come through. We also have great talks in the comments of that article. Hope to see you there! Stacking in DFS MLB is such an important concept if you’re looking to take down a big tournament on FanDuel or DraftKings. It’s also a good way to diversify cash games because the variance in baseball can mean wild swings (ahem) in the scoring on a particular slate. The concept is easy. You want to pile players from one or two teams into your lineups because those guys compound scores by helping each other score runs when the going is good. Stack Targets Early Slate New York Mets vs. Phil Klein (PHI) The pressure is on. Teams are fighting for postseason spots. Jobs are on the line. You're giving it all you got left in the tank. Emotions are higher than ever. It's October baseball baby! Happy October everyone! So without further ado, lets dive into my top three stacks of the day! First on the list are the New York Mets. They will be going up against Phil Klein, who has an ERA over 8. Although, It's not fair to judge him based on that, you have to admit -- 8 is a very intriguing number. He's only got one MLB start under his belt and the rest of his appearances came out of the pen. So I see this becoming a bullpen game for the 'Phils, which is also why I'm on this Mets' squad. The Phillies' bullpen has been one of the worst in the league, as they are sporting a 5.04 ERA (3rd-worst in MLB). The Mets are fighting to maintain their postseason hopes alive and have a beautiful matchup, which is why I'm all over these guys tonight. My top 4 guys to stack: Jay Bruce, Jose...

Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings – 10/1/16

Posted by on Oct 1, 2016 in Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks, featured, News | 2 comments

Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks for FanDuel and DraftKings - 10/1/16 Welcome to Saturday baseball! We have a nice 15 game spread out slate on our hands with some aces and a few offenses in great spots to put up some runs. Make sure to check out our other articles as they will touch on more pitching options, tournament stacks and any weather concerns that may arise. Let's get into the top options at each position! In case you didn’t notice, we just released our brand new NFL DFS suite of tools including full projections, optimal NFL lineups and our Player Lab, which includes filters to help you create NFL lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings for any format. It’s a set of tools well beyond anything we’ve ever had, and something we feel will help our users *ahem* tackle the NFL season. SIGN UP NOW! PITCHER Quick note: This isn't a normal day in baseball. There are two days left in the regular season, most teams' fates have been decided and as of this post about 60% of the games didn't even have a Vegas line. This is uncharted territory with tons of info missing. We'll do our best here, but late season MLB (especially today) is very dicey. Jon Lester FD 10800 DK 11100 Opponent - CIN (Adleman) Park - @CIN FD - 36.29 DK - 23.68 Jon Lester is going to start us off here, on a slate that doesn't really provide much in terms of pitching. There are a ton of teams in good offensive spots, but not many pitchers with the advantage. However, there are definitely a few, with one being Jon Lester. Lester and the Cubs will be taking on the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds are a horrible team and have sported the 9th worst wOBA in the league against lefties at .309. Lester on the other hand, has been great against both lefties and righties with a combined wOBA that sits under .305. While the ballpark is definitely a concern, it will not mater if Lester has his "stuff". He is pretty expensive on both sites, so it will be a sacrifice of a few bats if you decide you want to roster Lester. Lester is my top cash game play, though there is a plethora of other guys that are viable in tournaments. Update: We had Jaime Garcia here but Wacha is starting. Yeesh, late season MLB Strongly consider Clayton Kershaw of course though like I said at the beginning, pitching is super dicey here. We're proud to introduce a brand new partner (and player in this space), Fantasy Factor! DFSR readers can get a bunch of sweet freebies (including a $5, no...

Daily Fantasy Baseball News & Updates for FanDuel & DraftKings - 9/30/16 Welcome to the daily MLB updates and news article. We'll try and update it right up to line-up locks with as much information as comes across our desks. Let's get to it! Last night's picks can be found here, so you can wrap your mind around what you need to be looking at before lineups lock today. By the way - we keep our projection system updated with all of the batting lineup changes as they occur throughout the day right up until lineup lock. Every day. If you want access to that system so you can cut out a lot of the research element, click the button below! START YOUR FREE TRIAL! What We Know Personnel Mike Trout had X Rays on his left shoulder after exiting Wednesday's following a hit by a pitch. The results of the X Ray were negative and there is a good chance he could be back Friday night. Joey Votto should be back in the Reds starting lineup on Friday after being hit in the face with a ball on Thursday. He said he is fine and ready to go. Jean Segura is considered day to day as he is dealing with a cramp under his rib cage. The D Backs are not in playoff contention and will most likely sit hi on Friday. With the Nationals having locked up the NL East, they will most likely be sitting Bryce Harper this weekend letting him get to full health for a playoff push. Pirates skipper Clint Hurdle announced that Starling Marte will sit out the remainder of the season. The Pirates will also most likely sit Gregory Polanco who is dealing with a stiff neck after running into the center field wall last Friday. Eduardo Nunez is considered day to day and hasn't played since last Sunday. It is very possible we have seen the last of Albert Pujols this season as he has been dealing with foot pain related to plantar fasciitis. Brandon Phillips is another player dealing with minor injuries who coudl be shut down for the year as the Reds are not playing for anything. We're proud to introduce a brand new partner (and player in this space), Fantasy Factor! DFSR readers can get a bunch of sweet freebies (including a $5, no strings, no drip bonus) by signing up now!   The "Every Lineup" Guys Madison Bumgarner FD 10700 DK 11700 Opponent - LAD (Hill) Park - @SF FD - 40.76 DK - 27.18 It's pretty clear where the optimizer and projections are pointing us today.

We covered our system's top value plays in our daily picks article, but here we'll look at a bunch of other solid plays to consider.

It’s a set of tools well beyond anything we’ve ever had, and something we feel will help our users *ahem* tackle the NFL season. You can grab a free trial to test out yourself. START YOUR FREE TRIAL!     Pitching Targets Note: We discussed Madison Bumgarner, Yu Darvish and Taijuan Walker in the Main Article and will be going over a few more options below.   Carlos Martinez FD 9300 DK 9200 Opponent - PIT (Glasnow) Park - @STL FD - 34.33 DK - 22.44 Martinez will be an elite option at starting pitcher tonight as the Cardinals are heavy -190 home favorites in a do or die situation sitting on the outside looking in at the NL wildcard. They sit just one game back of the Giants and will face a Pirates team that has been eliminated from playoff contention. Maartinez has been red hot down the stretch for the Cards holding opponents to two earned runs or less in seven of his last eight starts while striking out close to 9.5 batters per nine. At a price under $10K on both sites he is safe in all formats.     Daniel Norris FD 7000 DK 7800 Opponent - ATL (Glasnow) Park - @ATL FD - 34.33 DK - 22.44 Things have been really interesting in Detroit the last few days. Rain postponed yesterday's game which will be made up on Monday if it is necessary. It very well could be as the Tigers sit just 1.5 games back of the Orioles and Blue Jays in the AL wildcard. They will push last nights starter Daniel Norris up into tonight's spot to face the Braves in Atlanta, where there is thankfully no rain in the forecast.  Norris has been impressive in his third stint in the majors after spending the start of his career with the Jays. He has made 12 starts in 2016 and posted a 3.59 ERA, 4.07 xFIP and very impressive 9.05 K/9 rate. He will face a Braves team who rank 27th in wOBA(.297) and wRC+(82) against left handed pitching. The price is very affordable making him an excellent second pitcher option...

Below we will be providing our favorite team stacks for tournament play based on projections from our lineup optimizer.

You want to pile players from one or two teams into your lineups because those guys compound scores by helping each other score runs when the going is good. Stack Targets Colorado Rockies vs. Brent Suter (Brewers) Park - Coors Field With my last regular season article you had to know I was going to kick it off with the Rockies. You will most likely see them twice more as well as it will be the final time to get exposure to Coors Field with Rockies nowhere close to the playoffs. The problem this season has been their play on the road but no need to get into that as they will be at home for the final three games where it comes as no surprise they lead the league in Isolated Power(.219) and wOBA(.377). They get a matchup vs. Suter who has spent his last 12 appearances as a reliever where he has not allowed an earned run. It's the same old story for a pitcher making the move back into the rotation. If he makes it even a few innings deep he is going to face the lineup more than once which he has not done since early August where the Mariners touched him up for four earned runs in 4.1 innings pitched. He will now be starting in the worst pitchers...
