DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/22/19): MLB DFS Lineups

Saturdays bring an afternoon dominated schedule, with only five games on the evening slate. However, with nearly equal money on that slate, there are some great opportunities to look to exploit, and therefore, is the focus of this article. The biggest favorite on this slate is obviously the Dodgers and Ryu. However, that also opens... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/20/19): MLB DFS Lineups

Thursday brings us an unbalanced split slate, with two games in the afternoon window and 10 in the evening slate.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/13/19): MLB DFS Lineups

A seemingly quiet day on Thursday, with just 11 games taking place. Two of those games take place in the afternoon, before a fuller nine-game slate in the evening.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/8/19): MLB DFS Lineups

A really strange day of baseball with two doubleheaders wreaking havoc on the slates. To confuse matters even more, neither of the Rays @ Red Sox games appear on either slate, while both of the Athletics @ Rangers games appear on slates. In total there are two main slates, both with fairly even weighting. The... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (5/23/19): MLB DFS Lineups

This Thursday slate is absolutely bizarre. There are 10 games in total, but four of them start between 12 and 1 pm, and there is only one game after 7 pm. That means a strange split of the slates on DraftKings. There is a six-game slate beginning at 12:10 pm, with a two-game slate beginning... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (5/16/19): MLB DFS Lineups

Thursday brings us another 10 game slate, but frustratingly once again with a split, and weirdly with one game (BAL @ CLE) missing off both slates entirely. The "main" slate starts at 6.40 pm and contains five games. There is also an earlier four game "featured" slate, but with the bigger prizes and more games... Read More

Both slates are considered featured but the slightly higher rewards come in the second slate. However, as both are featured... Read More

Another small slate on a Thursday as we see just eight total games, with six of them on the early slate.
