John Lepore | June 26th, 2019

The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.

Two-Start Pitchers: Week 13 (6/24 – 6/30) and Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | June 24, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Adam Plutko, SP CLE

(48% CBS, 4% ESPN, 10% Yahoo)

(3-1) 4.55 ERA 1.12 WHIP 7.16 K/9 0.98 BB/9

16.8% K-BB% 2.93 HR/9

Adam Plutko is 27 and only has 108.0 innings of major league service on his resume, but he has been relatively solid since his call up on 5/18 and could be a nice fill in this week. While his ERA is drastically inflated from a 7 run outing on 5/23, his peripherals (4.55 ERA 6.24 FIP 5.03 xFIP) are greatly skewed by a 2.93 HR/9, which is the 9th worst rate in baseball (minimum 20 IP). But there is hope: Continue reading

MLB DFS: Locks, Two Bats, and Two Stacks for June 21, 2019

Friday night special. Get those lineups set. Let’s take a look at some locks, two bats, and two stacks for the main slate of games ahead.

Locks

Chris Sale ($12,000 on DK and FD)

Does it matter what his price is? Chris Sale has been downright nasty and striking out everyone lately. Sale has double-digit strikeouts in eight of his last nine games. The Toronto Blue Jays will try to load up on right-handed hitters against him, but Sale should still be able to strikeout quite a few. Strikeouts are key in daily fantasy. The Blue Jays also have a weak .299 wOBA against lefties this season. Continue reading
