2016 Draft Kit

Draft Kings daily fantasy baseball advice for Wednesday, Aug. 19: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Pairing Clayton Kershaw and James Shields worked pretty well yesterday.

I hope you had a profitable day.

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.
