2016 Draft Kit

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

Sunday was a virtual disaster for me at FanDuel. I played six $1 contests, but only returned $3.60. That’s not going to cut it.

Just like I did for the Draft Kings lineups, I changed some of the multipliers in our formula back to the original numbers. Fiddling with yesterday’s and today’s rankings I found a pretty good point to work from. Both of my lineups for today went together smooth. I wasn’t fighting to cut cash or spend cash. That’s what we want, especially for our cash games, like 50/50s and head-to-heads.

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.
