2016 Draft Kit

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

It’s been a couple days since I posted a lineup at FanDuel, but after some good success at Draft Kings yesterday, I’m feeling a little confident.

I created three lineups, $6 in play. Too confident? Probably.

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.
