Draft Kings starting pitchers and hitters to start for Sunday, May 3

Yesterday, hitters did well in my lineups, but I didn’t do a good job pairing pitchers.

Yes, the Jorge de la Rosa advice paid off with an 18.45-point performance. And Mike Fiers, our No. 2 pitcher, went ballistic for 36.5 points in the early games.

Draft Kings starting pitchers and hitters to target for Saturday, May 2

The Matt Harvey-Chris Young pitcher pairing worked out perfectly yesterday, but I didn’t do enough research on my hitters.

The top two sleeper pitcher plays yesterday were J.A. Happ and Travis Wood. Wood rated in our top-10 safe plays, but Happ wasn’t anywhere to be seen. This is a good example of the old daily fantasy axiom to know how the crowd thinks and go in the other direction. Those two pitchers had a combined 7.6% ownership in the quarter arcade yesterday.

Draft Kings daily fantasy starting pitcher rankings for Tuesday, April 28

A word of warning before we get to the pitchers today: The Orioles-White Sox game has been postponed again due to safety.

Baltimore already has one of the highest violent crime rates in America. It’ll probably get worse before it gets better, but I hope things calm down soon.

Alright, now let’s talk pitchers.
