MLB Daily League Lineups: Exclusive Picks & Results from 8/6

RotoBaller provides MLB daily lineups for fantasy baseball daily leagues on Fanduel, DraftStreet, DraftKings, etc. Read our expert's daily league picks and results from August 6, 2013.


Earlier this season, launched an exclusive Expert Picks of the Day newsletter service.  The goal of this service is to provide our readers with expert player analysis, recommendations, and picks to assist them in setting their MLB daily league lineups.  Our fantasy baseball picks are delivered right to subscribers' email inboxes, so they can easily set their lineups and win on daily league sites like Fanduel, DraftStreet, DraftKings & others!

How does it work? Your subscription entitles you to exclusive research and analysis performed by our staff experts.  At each position, we’ll give you a low-priced value pick as well as our strongest option among the higher-priced players.  If you’re interested in getting an edge for your daily league matchups, sign up here.  You can also see how our daily picks look when you receive them, including our full analysis for each player (which isn’t shown below).  Obviously we can’t hit on every single pick, but the vast majority of our selections typically make strong contributions to tournament and heads-up victories for our subscribers.


Below you can see the players that were selected by our in-house experts for August 6th, along with the results of each player’s actual performance and their Fanduel points.

Please note that the dollar values listed below are Fanduel pricing, as most of our readers tend to use Fanduel. The player dollar values may differ between daily league sites, but our overall player analysis still holds true across sites.
