2016 Draft Kit

FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Thursday, Aug. 27: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

Yesterday, Mike Trout was the top player on the board at both FanDuel and Draft Kings. He scored 18 points for us at Draft Kings but went negative (-0.75) for us at FanDuel.

He’s in a bit of a slump, but that just means his price tag is dropping to a reasonable level.

Today we also have the same pitcher, Madison Bumgarner, and another batter, Justin Turner, atop both boards. I’m using them in all of the lineups I can.

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.
