So yesterday was a decent day for me in MLB. I played the 2 game early slate and the large main slate on DraftKings. I also played the full game slate on Drafters and the evening slate on Draft. My DraftKings cash lineups produced a 100% ROI. My tournament lineups produced a 72% ROI. I got a 28% ROI on Draft. I had a 30% loss on Drafters.
My rankings are based on the following criteria:
- Vegas implied offensive totals and team moneyline.
- Pitching stats for pitchers I want to play and pitchers I want to pick batters against (i.e. SIERA, K% BB% GB% FB% HC%)
- Team hitting wOBA verses the handedness of the pitcher they are facing.
- Individual hitting stats verses the handedness of the pitcher they are facing (i.e. wOBA, ISO, K%, BB%, SB, LD%, GB%, FB%)
- Stadium tendencies (Hitter Ball Park vs Pitcher Ball Park)
- Position Scarcity (Snake Drafts Only)
- Salary (Salary cap sites only)
We have one afternoon game today that starts at 12:10pm. The rest are evening games. If you are playing the early or full game slate Max Scherzer is obviously a top play today on snake draft sites and DraftKings Showdown. I expect a low scoring game so I personally wouldn’t pay up for bats. You can always play relief pitchers in Showdown if there is an expensive bat that you like.
For the evening and night games here is a full breakdown for 3 fantasy sites. Drafters, Draft and DraftKings.
