RotoBaller DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/18/18)
Tue, 18 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a monster 14-game slate to break down today, and there are some great options across the board. There are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate you should be looking to pay up for, along with plenty of bats you want to jam into your lineups.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/18/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings Starting Pitchers

Corey Kluber - P, CLE vs CWS (DK - $10,600)
Kluber is facing off against the White Sox, who come in with a 25.4% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is second worst in the entire league. Kluber has allowed one or no earned runs in two of his last four starts but allowed four or more earned runs in the other two starts. A slight bit of inconsistency from him, but putting up eight or more strikeouts in two of his last four starts is the level you want to be chasing tonight.

Blake Snell - P, TB @ TEX (DK - $12,100)
Snell is a flat out CY Young candidate this season and makes a great tournament play tonight. He has a negative park shift for him, but he is up against the Rangers, who have a 23% strikeout rate vs left-handed pitchers this season. Snell has nine strikeouts in three straight starts while allowing a total of four earned runs.

The Cut List (Week 25): Time to Let Go?
Mon, 17 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

Welcome to Week 25 of the Cut List. This week I’m taking a look at Adam Jones, Carlos Gonzalez, Odubel Herrera, and Starlin Castro.

All four players should be cut in most standard shallow formats. We’re in the thick of the fantasy playoff season and we need to own players who are actually producing results. These four players are not.

Time to Move On

Adam Jones (OF/DH, BAL)
Cut in 10-team leagues

Why you should cut him: Jones isn’t producing on the worst team in baseball, so there’s little-to-reason for him to be owned in the final weeks of the season. Playoff fantasy baseball comes down to who’s riding hot streaks and who’s not. You want to be quick on the draw when it comes to acquiring surging players and dropping slumping ones. On top of his low ceiling output at this time of year, the Orioles have been benching Jones in favor of their younger player lately. Look elsewhere if you still own him.

Better OF/DH option: Hunter Renfroe, Trey Mancini

Carlos Gonzalez (OF, COL)
Cut in 12-team leagues

Why you should cut him: Since July, Gonzalez has only hit two home runs and 12 RBI. For whatever reason he’s still owned in 55% of ESPN leagues, but that number is shrinking by the day. If you’re still holding on, please let him loose and add a better player. There should be plenty better options available in your league. I like Ben Zobrist as a replacement option, assuming he might be available in a standard league.

Better OF options: Ben Zobrist

RotoBaller FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/15/18)
Sat, 15 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a four-game early slate which starts at 3 pm est and then an eight-game slate which starts at 7 pm est. There are plenty of good options across the board, we have high priced pitchers to look at, along with Coors Field in play.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/15/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

German Marquez - P, COL @ SFG (FD - $10,600)
Marquez is the most expensive pitcher on the entire slate and has been amazing as of late. He comes in with nine or more strikeouts in four straight starts, while allowing a total of five earned runs in that span. He is getting a massive positive park shift being away from Coors Field and now in San Francisco, which is a great pitcher's park. Up against the Giants, who have a .295 team wOBA vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is fourth worst in the league.

Mike Clevinger - P, CLE vs DET (FD - $10,400)
Clevinger comes in with eight or more strikeouts in four straight starts, with only seven earned runs in his last four starts. He is just half a step behind Marquez in terms of his production, but still just as good of an option. He is up against the Tigers who have a 23% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers and a low .140 team ISO vs righties. Great option for cash or GPPs tonight.

Free Swings with Scott - September 14
Fri, 14 Sep 2018 (by Scott Chu, @Chuseph_Esquire, Chuseph@gmail.com)

Keep an eye on the forecast on the east coast, though most games look like they’re relatively safe at this time.

Best Bets

Max Scherzer is a monster. He's yet to allow more than 4 runs, and he's only allowed in 2 of his 30 starts. He's yet to throw fewer than 5 innings, and he's only done that twice as well. Oh, and he's posted double-digit strikeouts in 53.3% of his starts. The Braves aren't a super scary opponent against righties like Max -- they rank right in the middle of the pack in wOBA and wRC+ -- and Max is basically matchup proof anyway. Notably, the Braves do a good job avoiding 3rd strikes as their 20.3 strikeout rate against righties is the 7th best in baseball, but again, this is Mad Max. In 27 innings against Scherzer this season, the Braves have collectively slashed .204/.235/.306 with just 4 walks and 30 strikeouts. I will be featuring Scherzer in every lineup I can tonight.

Walker Buehler didn't have a great outing in Coors last week, but you can't really blame him too much for giving up two dingers (4 ER total) over 6 innings up in the mountains. I think he'll bounce back strong against the Cardinals in St. Louis. He's racked up 7+ strikeouts in 6 of his last 8 with 5 of his last 8 being quality starts. His strikeout potential and the fairly average opponent (the Cardinals rank 15th in wRC+ and strikeout rate) along with how well he has pitched all season (3.09 ERA, 3.26 FIP, 9.92 K/9) make him a really attractive option every time he takes the mound.

RotoBaller FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/13/18)
Thu, 13 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a two-game early slate which starts at 3 pm est and then a six-game slate which starts at 7 pm est. There are plenty of good options across the board, we have high priced pitchers to look at, along with Coors Field in play.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/13/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Clayton Kershaw - P, LOS @ STL (FD - $11,500)
Kershaw is simply the best pitcher in action today and you should be doing what you can to get him into your lineups. He has allowed two or fewer earned runs in nine straight starts, which is him showing the signs he is back to his former self. He has seven or more strikeouts in four of his last five starts and is now up against the Cardinals, who come in with a 22% strikeout rate vs left-handed pitchers this season.

Steven Matz - P, NYM vs MIA (FD - $8,200)
Matz has actually looked really good as of late, with seven or more strikeouts in three of his last four starts, while allowing two or fewer runs in each of those four starts. Those numbers are up there with Kershaw, making Matz a very strong point per dollar play compared to him tonight. He is up against the Marlins, who come in with a team wOBA sitting at .289 vs left-handed pitchers this season, which is fourth worst in the league.

RotoBaller DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/12/18)
Wed, 12 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

There are a plethora of games today, although DraftKings broke those games down into two slates. Overall, there are 15 games, but this article will only focus on the later slate. On that slate, there are eight games, but still plenty of options to choose from.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/12/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings Starting Pitchers

Aaron Nola - P, vs WAS ($11,200)
Nola has been nearly untouchable at home this season, where he owns a 9-1 record with a 2.21 ERA through 14 starts. He has also found plenty of success against the Washington Nationals this season. Through four starts against Washington, he has recorded a 3-0 record, while allowing only four earned runs over 28.2 innings. Tonight, he's a -131 favorite in a game set at only 7.5 runs.

David Price - P, vs TOR ($9,700)
Price has struggled at times this season, but he has caught fire over his last 10 starts. Over that span, he owns a 5-0 record with a 2.47 ERA. He also owns a 10.2 K/9 in those games. Furthermore, Price has been a more consistent option in Boston this season. He gets a solid matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays, and Price is a -236 favorite in a game set at 9 runs.

RotoBaller DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/11/18)
Tue, 11 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a monster 13-game slate to break down today, and there are some great options across the board. There are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate you should be looking to pay up for, along with plenty of bats you want to jam into your lineups.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/11/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings Starting Pitchers

Jacob deGrom - P, NYM vs MIA (DK - $13,500)
Will deGrom pitch tonight? Well, that's tough to answer since he has had his starts canceled over the past two days due to the weather. Today, hopefully, he will be up against the Marlins who come in with a 22.5% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers, along with a team wOBA sitting at only .293. deGrom has nine or more strikeouts in three of his last four starts and only given up three earned runs in his last four combined.

Miles Mikolas - P, STL vs PIT (DK - $7,600)
Mikolas isn't a big strikeout pitcher, but he is cheaper and not facing a threatening offense. That offense is the Pirates, who come in with a team wOBA sitting at .310 vs right-handed pitchers this season. He has four starts against the Pirates this season, where he is coming away with an average of 14 DraftKings points. That is a solid amount for a player who should a solid SP2 option today.

RotoBaller FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/6/18)
Mon, 10 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

Hopefully you're entering the Monday slate a bit richer after another full weekend of baseball and the first week of NFL action in the books. There's a 10 game main slate, so get your lineups in. Some of my early favorite stacks include the Cubs and Brewers, but some other under the radar picks such as the Mets and Pirates could pay off on the slate.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/10/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

German Marquez - SP, vs. ARI ($9,000)
Marquez has proven that he is capable of pitching well at Coors, maintaining an ERA well below 3.00 when pitching there since the All-Star break. He’s also racked up strikeouts at an elite rate, posting greater than 9.0 K/9 in eight of his last 10 starts. At a $3,300 dollar discount compared to Corey Kluber, it’s difficult not to turn to Marquez.

Jakob Junis - SP, vs. CWS ($7,900)
Junis has gotten back on track of late, allowing only one home run in his last 38 innings pitched. Even with that run, he’s allowing 1.58 HR/9 on the season, which illustrates just how much he was being taken deep in other times of the season while also illuminating his risk. Over the past 30 days, the White Sox have posted a respectable .164 ISO as a team but have struck at a 26.1% rate -- the highlight of this matchup.

Are you ready for some football?
Sat, 08 Sep 2018 (by RotoGuru)

RotoGuru.com will once again be tracking DFS salaries and points for NFL regular season games in 2018.

The data isn't as expansive as what I generate for baseball. But it is all free. Here's what's available:

  • Weekly point recaps for each player, along with DFS salary. Salaries are shown for each of FanDuel, DraftKings, and Yahoo DFS (in separate listings). Data is available both in HTML and text (semi-colon separated values - SCSV) format. Historical data is also available, week by week, for 2017 and for some prior seasons. Use the dropdown menu on that page to see what seasons are available for each DFS sponsor. (Data for week #1 games should be available sometime on Monday.)
  • Sortable stats, showing all current salaries along with YTD point totals and averages. This report is also available in both HTML and SCSV text, typically updated by noon Tuesday.
  • Each report has links to individual player histories - both points and prices. And clicking on any weekly point value leads to a detailed reconciliation of that point total.
In all reports, salaries generally reflect the classic DFS game format for the full slate of all games (Thurs-Monday).

Sortable stats and individual pages also show data for opposing players. For example, here is report showing Fanduel points for opposing RB, team by team. Admittedly not very interesting early on, but potentially more useful as the season unfolds. Individual team details are also available on this basis (sample: Opponents of Kansas City Chiefs.) In addition to showing weekly point totals by position, if you hover over any point value on that latter report, you should see a list of the opposing player details comprising that total.

As a caveat, note that my point calculations are based on my own independent calculations, and may - on rare occasions - differ from those used at the related game site. If you notice any discrepancies, let me know and I'll investigate.



Free Swings with Scott - September 7
Fri, 07 Sep 2018 (by Scott Chu, @Chuseph_Esquire, Chuseph@gmail.com)

Best Bets

In his 26 starts in 2018, Blake Snell has given up 3 or more earned runs just 4 times. The most recent occasion was all the way back on July 12. Tonight, the young ace will face the Orioles, who are tied for last place in wRC+ and in 28th in wOBA against lefties. While their 21.8% strikeout rate isn’t spectacularly bad, it’s more than high enough for Snell, who is averaging 8 Ks per outing in his last 5 games. The icing on the cake? This game takes place in Tropicana, which has the 6th best run factor for pitchers this season.

Speaking of park factors, Citi Field, home of the Mets, has suppressed more runs than any other park this year, and tonight will host one of the game’s best starters in Aaron Nola. Despite being terrible overall, the Mets have been surprisingly average against righties this season (while being utterly miserable against lefties). Even without a strong platoon advantage, there’s just no way you can ignore Nola, who is averaging 9.75 strikeouts per outing in his last 4 starts. Also, while it may be a small sample, Nola has toed the rubber against the Mets on 4 occasions this season with resounding success – he’s tossed 25 innings with a 1.44 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 29 strikeouts. I expect the dominance over the Mets to continue.

For those in their fantasy playoffs or fighting to climb the Roto ladder, I think you need to strongly consider BENCHING Clayton Kershaw in Coors Field. He hasn’t pitched there yet this season, but over the prior 3 years, he’s pitched 29.2 innings there over 5 starts with a not-so-good 4.85 ERA and “just” 24 strikeouts. Further, the Rockies have the 2nd best wOBA against lefties in large part due to the mashing of the righty combo of Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story. From March through August, the motto “roll with your studs” always applies. In September, though, all bets are off. He’s a big time AVOID in DFS as well.

RotoBaller FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/6/18)
Thu, 06 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a VERY small four-game slate tonight, which starts early, at 6:40 pm est. That is due to the fact the NFL is kicking off tonight, so we have a very limited slate and the options are a bit thin today.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/6/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Luis Castillo - P, CIN vs SDP (FD - $8,200)
Castillo has seven or more strikeouts in three of his last four starts and will now be up against the Padres, who have a 25.8% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, which is dead last in the league. Even with the high strikeout recently, Castillo has allowed five earned runs in two of his last four starts, causing a bit of concern. The upside is certainly there for him up against this weak Padres team, but the risk in this ballpark should be noted.

Kyle Hendricks - P, CHC @ WAS (FD - $9,000)
Hendricks has allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts while adding five or more strikeouts in three of those same five outings. He is facing off against the Nationals, who are all but dead in the playoff race but pose a decent threat in terms of their offense. Hendricks isn't the biggest strikeout pitcher, but his 40%+ groundball rate should help him limit the damage tonight.

RotoBaller DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/5/18)
Wed, 05 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

There are a few early games today, but the majority of the games take place after 7 PM. Overall, there are 12 games for the main slate, which is what we will be attacking here.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/5/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings Starting Pitchers

Hyun-Jin Ryu - P, vs NYM ($9,200)
Ryu has been throwing at an elite level over his last nine starts, posting a 4-1 record with a 1.85 ERA over that span. He's also averaging nearly 20 fantasy points per game, while scoring less than 10 fantasy points in two of the contests. Ryu also gets a great matchup against the New York Mets, and he's a -183 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs.

Nick Pivetta - P, at MIA ($8,200)
Pivetta is a player that can always be considered in plus matchups because of his strikeout potential. Through 27 starts, he owns a 7-10 record with a 4.66 ERA. He has also posted a 10.7 K/9 through 141 innings. He gets an elite matchup against the Miami Marlins in a pitcher friendly stadium tonight, as well. Pivetta is currently a -156 favorite in a game set at only 7.5 runs.

RotoBaller DraftKings MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/4/18)
Tue, 04 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

We have a monster 15-game slate to break down today, and there are some great options across the board. There are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate you should be looking to pay up for, along with plenty of bats you want to jam into your lineups.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 9/4/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

DraftKings Starting Pitchers

Justin Verlander – P, HOU vs MIN (DK - $12,300)
Verlander has 11 or more strikeouts in three of his last six starts, which is why he is one of the most expensive pitchers on the slate. He has given up three or more earned runs in three straight starts, which can be a bit concerning, especially when pay his price. The matchup for him is good, as the Twins have a very average .317 team wOBA vs RHP, so this is a good spot for Verlander to get back on track.

Jake Arrieta – P, PHI @ MIA (DK - $7,400)
Arrieta has a nice positive park shift in his favor, as he is away from Philly and now in Miami, which is a fantastic pitcher’s park. He is up against the Marlins, who come in with a 22% strikeout rate vs right-handed pitchers this season, along with a team ISO of .122, which is dead last in the league. A great price tag on him today, along with having a very easy matchup.

RotoBaller FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (9/3/18)
Mon, 03 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

While having all 30 teams in action is a welcomed development for this Monday slate, FanDuel unfortunately broke up the slate so that there isn't the majority of games unless you play the all day slate (which doesn't offer major tournaments). That said, this lineup will focus on the early only slate, which features seven games. The Red Sox and Cubs are the most obvious stacks (jam in lefty Cubs -- Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo, and Ian Happ -- but the White Sox and Tigers matchup favors two pitchers who have a legitimate chance to implode. That's an under-the-radar stack I like.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 9/3/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Dallas Keuchel - SP, vs. MIN ($9,000)
Max Scherzer is the obvious cash game play on the slate, but Keuchel has a matchup worth noting. While the Twins have five regulars in their lineup with a wRC+ above 100, three of them -- Joe Mauer, Logan Forsythe, and Robbie Grossman -- have failed to post an ISO above .126. That’s a good thing for a relatively contact oriented pitcher like Keuchel, and makes him a strong play at a steep discount from Scherzer.

Vince Velasquez - SP, @ MIA ($6,600)
Velasquez has managed to complete five innings only one in his past four starts, making it nearly impossible to trust him in cash game contests. However, he still has a 9.91 K/9 (26.2%), giving him enough upside at his pricetag to be a great GPP dart. He flashed his upside in his last start against the Marlins, recording 46 FD points. The matchup and price tag indicate he’s worth a shot, even if his recent results don’t.

Buy or Sell - Undervalued and Overvalued Players for Week 23
Sat, 01 Sep 2018 (by contributed by RotoBaller.com)

You probably aren't technically able to make trades in your leagues by this point in the season, but it's never too late to buy or sell from the plethora of talented players available in fantasy baseball waiver pools. Instead of trading assets with other owners, you can "buy" players that have been overlooked or recently discarded on the wire. In this case, think of it as a short-term investment that comes at a low cost (you did save at least a couple bucks of FAAB for the final month, right?)

Rather than trade candidates, I'll focus on players that appear to be trending up or down, but could soon be headed in opposite directions. In other words, we'll find some undervalued and overvalued players for you to target in free agency, or the trade market if your league still allows.

As always, I will never advocate that you buy or sell a player if I wouldn't follow the same advice myself. Now, time to assess some fantasy values.

Undervalued Players - Week 23

Jonathan Villar (2B/OF, BAL) 51% owned
Trust issues? I get it. I too owned Villar earlier this year, only to leave him on waivers month ago when it was obvious he wasn't going to come close to approaching his career-year numbers from two seasons ago. A fresh start in Baltimore might have been all he needed though. In August, Villar hit .275 with four HR, 13 RBI, 15 R, and eight steals - all highs for any month since 2016. He's absolutely worth owning for steals alone, but it looks like he can bring much more to owners down the stretch.

Joey Wendle (2B/3B/OF, TB) 21% owned
He's likely been streamed and discarded several times over in many leagues and ignored in others, but Wendle is outperforming prospect Willy Adames and holding down the leadoff spot in Tampa. Despite notching two steals in a game last Wednesday and four in the last two weeks, Wendle is only up to 12 SB this season. Don't pick him up for speed, pick him up because he is batting .296 on the year and should continue to score runs at a fair clip atop the batting order. That said, don't be long to cut bait if he does start to slump. He owns a 6% walk rate that was below-average at almost every minor league stop and his .351 BABIP may not last a whole month longer.

Hunter Renfroe (OF, SD) 21% owned
I've always been a believer in Renfroe's massive swing and the ability to drive the ball. After a massively disappointing rookie season, he's proven that he can hit Major League pitching at a hard rate, posting a 45.2% Hard% over 301 at-bats. He's up to 17 home runs this year, which is behind last year's pace, but he's at least near replacement level with his .256 average. Don't look at his OBP - he just doesn't like to take free passes, so points leagues and those that count OBP/OPS shouldn't consider him. Traditional 5x5 league owners could use him as a cheap power source as he's been hot lately and the Padres continue to play in hitter-friendly venues like Colorado and Arizona.

Corey Dickerson (OF, PIT) 55% owned
After batting .400 in the month of July and swatting six homers, Dickerson went homerless throughout August and batted just .209. Confused owners may be abandoning him in their time of need, but that makes him an immediate add for those with bench space. He's always been a streaky hitter, but 2018 has been an extreme version of that. The Pirates may have lost their playoff mojo, but with Austin Meadows now gone, Dickerson should continue to get regular playing time in the middle of a potent lineup.

Gio Gonzalez (SP, MIL) 57% owned
He's been horrible lately, allowing four disastrous starts out of his last six, posting a 7.47 ERA in the last month. Moving to a more hitter-friendly park won't help either. But wait... Nats park is actually fourth in Park Factor for runs this season whereas Milwaukee's Miller Park is 18th. While Miller Park is sixth in HR factor, Nationals Park is still higher at third. Last year things were different, but this move won't hurt Gonzalez and he now moves to a winning club environment as well. Don't count him out based on a rough stretch either - Gonzalez was posting a sub-4.00 ERA and striking out almost a batter per inning for most of the season. He won't be a league-winner, but he could be a solid end-of-rotation piece in deeper leagues.

Overvalued Players - Week 23
