FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Thursday, Sept, 3: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

I made these lists only for you.

I’m not building a FanDuel lineup today. I don’t like the slate. I don’t mind it at Draft Kings because I can drop a quarter on a lineup to take a chance, but I’m not betting a dollar on Mat Latos coming through for me tonight.

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Thursday, Sept. 3: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Yesterday was profitable for me at Draft Kings. At 6 p.m. I took a dinner break at work and updated my rankings.

That probably played a pretty big part in the success.

FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Wednesday, Sept. 2: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

My FanDuel lineups have been very up and down lately, but at least there has been some up.

Conventional wisdom says to go with a top-level pitcher because they are valued much higher in FanDuel’s scoring system. In that case, it’s a Clayton Kershaw day, so you know what to do. If you want to pivot away from that though, Michael Wacha, our No. 3 pitcher, represents a nice potential value.

Well, as predicted, Andrew Cashner hung my lineups out to dry. My only lineup that cashed was the only one that didn’t have Cashner.

I hope you heeded my advice and went the other direction. If you went with the big guns — Zack Greinke and Chris Sale — you probably cashed. Good job.

FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Tuesday, Sept. 1: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Many of you, I’m sure, have read the Draft Kings rankings. You’ve seen that I have Andrew Cashner in four-of-five DK lineups.

Then you get here and see Cashner at the top of the pitcher list and you’re probably think, ep may actually punch himself in the face if Cashner gets bombed.

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Tuesday, Sept. 1: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

We’re coming down to the wire on the Major League Baseball regular season.

The MLB postseason is one of my favorite things in the world, but I’m not sure how much fantasy I’ll play during that time. We’ll be waist deep into fantasy football season at that point.

Fanduel daily fantasy baseball advice for Friday, Aug. 28: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

We were back to profitability at both Draft Kings and FanDuel on Thursday, ending a pretty garbage stretch.

With Clayton Kershaw on the mound, and our value-based rankings to help us figure out who to start, I figure we’ll be in for another nice day in our 50/50s today.
