2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Saturday, Aug. 8: Value-adjusted pitcher and hitter rankings

I hope you’re having an amazing Saturday. Hopefully it is one filled with daily fantasy baseball wins.

I’m on a bit of a winning streak, profits for five days in a row, including a couple tournament cashes yesterday. Nothing huge, but a noticeable improvement over all these 50/50 wins.

Over the last three days I’ve won 77 percent of the 50/50s I’ve entered. I’ve also cashed in eight tournaments.

These rankings work.
