2016 Draft Kit

Fanduel daily fantasy baseball advice for Friday, Aug. 28: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

We were back to profitability at both Draft Kings and FanDuel on Thursday, ending a pretty garbage stretch.

With Clayton Kershaw on the mound, and our value-based rankings to help us figure out who to start, I figure we’ll be in for another nice day in our 50/50s today.

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.
