2016 Draft Kit

FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Thursday, Sept, 3: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

I made these lists only for you.

I’m not building a FanDuel lineup today. I don’t like the slate. I don’t mind it at Draft Kings because I can drop a quarter on a lineup to take a chance, but I’m not betting a dollar on Mat Latos coming through for me tonight.

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.
