After some time away to reconfigure the Stream Machine for in-season matchup data (as well as taking some time off for personal reasons), I’m ready to roll out some new streaming options for the weekend matchups. As I promised earlier, I will do a check in at the end of the month in order to show the kind of stats you can get from your streaming starters. It’s important to remember that this is a season-long project, and early season streaming options are hard to figure out, as we don’t have a representative sample of in-season data until later on. Regardless, here are my picks for the weekend matchups. Continue reading →
Not to say that pitching sucks, but the pitching has kinda sucked this year. With more rumors of a rebirth of the juiced baseball, more elite pitchers are getting shelled and leaving their starts earlier than expected, while elite names and young prospects are flourishing. The following point totals are from a standard head to head CBS points league. Continue reading →
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 and dark horses but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Next week I will put up my season numbers and will track them as we go along. For today though, let’s dive right in.
Well, hope you all had a great Jackie Robinson Day and were able to make some money last night. I hope you played Christian Yelich. I also hope you didn’t play either of the pitchers I mentioned. That might be the last time I roster Kikuchi and who knows about Cahill. Either way, the best part about MLB DFS is we get to bounce-back the next day. So, that’s exactly what we’ll do. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for tonight’s huge 13-game slate. Continue reading →
If you were to ask anyone which team would have the best winning percentage almost three weeks into the season, would you guess it was Tampa Bay Rays? Not you didn’t, don’t lie. They recently have won six of their last seven and Meadows was a significant contributor. The former first-round pick is taking advantage of his first opportunity at a major league starting gig. He had four home runs this week and led the league in AVG (.632), SLG (1.368), OBP (.708), and tied for the most RBI with 11. Continue reading →
Going with a different strategy today, I’ll be spending down in most lineups at both starting pitcher spots on DraftKings tonight. Too many of the good high priced options have difficult matchups and this will help to avoid an implosion. If you’re playing on a site like Fanduel, it might make more sense to just go ahead and spend up for a guy like Trevor Bauer. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the players to target for tonight’s games that could potentially bring home the bacon. Continue reading →
Matt O’Halloran | April 13th, 2019A couple of weeks into the season, we are starting to get a gauge on who the best players and teams are. You have the givens such as Mike Trout playing out of his mind and you have the surprises such as Chris Sale and the Red Sox struggling. Let’s take a look at players that have had underrated starts to the season that you need to look at in your season-long fantasy league. Note that all fantasy information is from ESPN.
