DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (8/15/18): MLB DFS Lineups

Boy, do we have an interesting 10 game slate under the lights this evening. Pitching looks like it could be tough sledding, as there aren't many reliable arms, but stacking offenses should be a fun exercise with a lot of potentially lucrative directions to go in. There is a four game Early Only slate, but... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (8/10/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We've got a big 14-game slate on deck for this evening and it looks pretty interesting as there is just one five-digit priced pitcher and a handful of others from that "good/great but not elite" tier. The Nationals and Cubs are the matinee and the other 28 teams will be playing under the lights in... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (8/8/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Good afternoon, my fellow Rotoballers. We've got a nine game Main slate to breakdown on this hot-as-hell Wednesday that features a pitching group without much flair, but with plenty of offenses to target. As of early afternoon, there are five offenses with impressive (see also: attractive for stacking purposes) implied run totals and a few... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (8/1/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

The dust has finally settled on a pretty crazy Trade Deadline day. New faces in new places! Anywho, we've got a classic split-slate Wednesday on our hands with five afternoon games and six being played under the lights. Due to the more lucrative options being in the Main slate tonight, I'm going to concentrate this... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/27/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Thanks to the Cubbies being on the road on this beautiful Friday, we get a 15 game Main slate as all teams will be playing under the lights. The slate has a heavy east coast feel to it, with only three games starting after 9 p.m. It also features some serious aces and good second... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/25/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

It feels like forever since we've had a solid Early Only slate on a Wednesday, and so the MLB scheduling gods have finally graced us with one. Unfortunately, the Main slate is not as meaty, but we can work with it. FanDuel has split it up such that there are eight games in the Early... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/21/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

It's so good to have DFS back! We got our toes wet with a nice 14 game Main slate last night, and the MLB scheduling gods have blessed us with a slate today that has most teams playing under the lights. Eleven games make up the Main slate, and I'll be focusing my picks to... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/20/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

I do enjoy the All-Star break, but forgive me for wanting it to end almost the second the final pitch is thrown in the All-Star game. Waiting for regular season games to come back in the dead of summer is no fun. I honestly had no idea what to do with myself Wednesday and Thursday.... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/13/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

With the Cubs on the road and thus no Friday afternoon matinee, we've got a true 15-game Main slate this evening. The slate may lack truly elite pitching options, but we have some solid ones to work with and a whole handful of offenses worth stacking. Let's start with a look at Vegas, specifically, the...

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/11/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Being a guy that loves pitching a ton, I can't complain that we have a bunch of top arms going today - but damn it's tough to split hairs between some of these stable, high upside arms. Split-slate Wednesday is giving us a lot to work with in the Main slate (12 games) and no... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/6/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy Friday to you,  my fellow RotoBallers. We've got a delightful 14 game Main slate on FanDuel this evening, with a pair of aces at the top and some enticing mid-tier and near-ace pitchers not far behind them. Some tough decisions will have to be made at the top of your lineups tonight, but I... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (7/4/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Happy 4th of July, RotoBallers! I hope you all have a great holiday. While we're watching fireworks and grilling out, let's see if we can add some cash to our FanDuel wallets, too. Right now in Vegas we are seeing some very lofty run projections on this Main slate, starting with the Rockies at 5.7,... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/29/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

It appears to be a beautiful day across the country and we've got a lot of delightful pitching matchups that make this Main slate tonight very enticing. The Twins and Cubs unfortunately don't get to join the party as their first pitch time is at 5pm, but the other 14 games will be played under... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/27/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Hello my friends, and welcome back to another Wednesday edition. We've got 11 games on the Main slate tonight with a heavy dose of Eastern and Central time zone games and just two out west. Pitching looks like it's going to be a bit tricky to navigate here, too, which should make tournaments a bit... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/22/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We've got an interesting 14 game slate on our hands. The pitching options are intriguing, but they're all fairly mid-tier guys with no true aces in good spots tonight. That should make the playing field a little more even and those who are playing tournaments can hopefully spend less time worrying about ownership and more... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/20/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

We're back to a pretty balanced split-slate Wednesday. Five games are taking place under the sun at the 12:35 Early Only slate, and there are seven games being played under the lights for the 7:05 Main slate. A nice handful of quality pitchers are taking the bump in each slate, too! You can also read... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/15/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

A 15-game Main slate Friday is pretty well deserved after that weak four-gamer we had to deal with last night. Oh, and it's the weekend, too. Pretty sweet combination in my opinion. There are a handful of stud and stud-like pitchers at the top - so there's much to discuss. In this article, I will... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/13/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

For reasons unbeknownest to me, FanDuel decided to split the afternoon games into smaller, unattractive slates. Luckily, nine of the games are being played under the lights in the Main slate - and this post will focus on that action. Once we get closer to first pitch, I'll call out some notable line movement and... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/8/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

This is a going to be a fun Friday night of DFS action. It's an ace party! We've got several teams number one guy on the bump tonight and a handful of other quality pitchers to choose from.

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/6/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Major League Baseball decided to do a pretty imbalanced Wednesday split of day game and night games. As such, the Early Only slate is pretty weak, and the Main looks attractive (well, minus the dropoff of tonight as compared to last night - more on that later). As such, this article will concentrate on the... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/3/18): MLB DFS Lineups

There are a handful of small slates on DraftKings today, with the most appealing one left being the 4:00 pm slate, so this post will concentrate on those four games. In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 6/3/18. The lineup picks will range from some... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (6/1/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

As we welcome the month of June, hopefully much of the Spring showers are behind us. The rain - and rainouts - have gotten a bit out of hand. Does it sound like I got burned by the Yankees - Orioles rainout? Because I most certainly did. Anywho, beautiful 15 game slate on deck for... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (5/30/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

If you were getting sick of the split-slate Wednesday, today is for you! Well, FanDuel is offering some All Day and Early Only tournaments, but with much less prize money as there are only three afternoon games in that slate. As such, I'll be concentrating this article on the more enticing 10 game slate we... Read More

DraftDaily Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (5/25/18): MLB DFS Lineups

What a monstrous slate we are blessed with tonight! Just the Giants and Cubs are squaring off this afternoon, which means all other 28 teams will be on the main slate tonight.

The folks at DraftKings got this one right - all 15 games taking place today are part of good slates with big prize money. We have an Early Only slate consisting of the five afternoon games, and the other 10 are part of the Main slate that begins at 7:05 EDT. Things are sure to... Read More

Exciting Wednesday schedule we have on our hands. All 30 teams are in action (weather permitting, of course) and, as usual, we have to slates to play. The first slate is a four-gamer, beginning at 1:05. The second is a 10 game slate, beginning at 7:05 EDT. Things are sure to fluctuate in Vegas, but... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (5/18/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

I feel like we deserve this big, beautiful slate tonight with all the rain-outs and mediocre options we've dealt with throughout the week. All 15 games tonight are in the Main slate, so there is much to discuss. Unfortunately, we are not without weather concerns, but at least there will be other options to fall... Read More

FanDuel MLB DFS Lineup Picks (5/16/18): Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Pretty interesting schedule we have on our hands on this Wednesday in the middle of May. Fourteen major league games are set to take place, but only 11 of them are in the larger contests. There are six games in the Early slate and five on the Main. I'll be focusing on those as that's... Read More

Introducing Value Over Starter Football Metrics

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.
