DraftDaily Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/1/18): MLB DFS Lineups


In preparation for today's freeroll on DraftDaily, below you can find my recommended lineup picks. If you've never played on DraftDaily before, it is fairly similar to the other sites, but you tend to lose more points. Points are taken away for strikeouts and home runs allowed, but you also earn points for sacrifice flies. Before creating a lineup, make sure you look over the scoring system.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftDaily on 6/1/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

Give Draft Daily a try today to see the difference and join the excitement. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @BalesSJustin.
