2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Sunday, Aug. 9: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Yesterday was a pretty massive disappointment. Using these rankings I didn’t a game.

I’m a realist. I know you can’t win every day, even at 50/50s. If DFS was easy, everybody’d be making stacks of cash.

However, these rankings have been profitable for five of the last six days, so I’m going with them again today.

Our value-adjusted rankings are created by dropping FantasyPros’ free daily fantasy advice into a formula to generate a more value-based list that brings the best values to the forefront while scraping the overpriced players to the bottom.
