The Toronto Blue Jays entered the 2019 season with low expectations in a rebuilding year, so their 67-95 record was not surprising. The bright spot of the season was the development of promising young hitters like Bo Bichette, Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Cavan Biggio, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The lackluster performance by the starting rotation was the main negative of this past year.

With the MLB season winding down, we won’t have many more opportunities to take advantage and make some money playing DFS. We need to capitalize on the remaining opportunities.
