2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Monday, Aug. 24: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Eked out enough wins last night to break even. I made some slight modifications to the formulas a while back. I switched back to the original multipliers. The lineups came together well today.

We’ll see how they do. Maybe don’t go all-in on these today. However, I do recommend you throw at least one entry into the $300,000 Moonshot championship. That thing only has a $3 entry, but $300,000 in prizes — including $100,000 to first and $10,000 to second. I don’t know about you, but $10,000 would be life-changing for me, let alone $100,000.

It pays out to the top 22 percent of players too, which is pretty high for a tournament payout structure.

These rankings usually do a good job of pulling a few low-owned players to the top. I hope to see your name next to mine at the top of the leaderboard.

As usual, you’ll want to check your lineups close to game time to make sure any low-end values — and, really, all players — are actually starting. These rankings are usually produced several hours before lineups are announced. They reflect a best-case scenario, which doesn’t always come to pass. You can win millions of dollars with a goose egg in your lineup, but you don’t want one there if you can avoid it.
