2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Friday, Aug. 14: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

I’m a little behind the 8-ball today. I had a lot to get done. That’s why these are a bit late for the all-day contests.

However, the only game you’re missing out on is Cubs-White Sox. And, as the rankings point out, we don’t really need them today anyway.

I had another fruitful day at both Draft Kings and FanDuel, but only barely. I’m sure today will be another clean sweep.

I made the hitter list a top-150 instead of the usual top-100. The 10 p.m. selection is rather grim, especially when sites like FanDuel tells you rostering 8 Dodgers is illegal.
