Daily Picks

A little heat cooked up with the great Bill Stevenson on drums.

It’s rare that any position is barren in 12-team leagues. In 15-team leagues the pickings can get slim, but there’s always something. Catcher – Always the pickings are slim in absolute terms, but relative to other catchers there are a few guys who shouldn’t hurt. In my Main Event league, Kevin Plawecki is out there […]

It’s often worth noting for DFS when a team’s bullpen is depleted. For your hitters, sure, but also when choosing your SPs. Such is the case with the Cubs today. Quintana is fairly expensive ($11.7k on DK, not too bad at $8.8k on FD), and he figures to go deeper in the game than other […]

It’s a wide open night, with the aces pitching yesterday. I’m going with three: Aaron Sanchez, Alex Wood and Kyle Hendricks. None is especially expensive, which allows the use of Trout, Correa, Freddie Freeman, and other hitters you may like just as much. Anyone going against the Yankees is dangerous, but a righty groundballer with […]

Ah, draft day. What a great feeling walking into that big room in the Bellagio. The Bellagio. As a hotel it’s overrated. Don’t get me wrong, it’s splendid enough in its way, but the rooms and the spectacles and the amenities are no better than the Venetian (the canals of Venice on the 2nd floor, […]

I’m off to Vegas tomorrow for the NFBC Main Event on Saturday. If you’re drafting this weekend, go get ’em. Trout – You know about him. Harper – I don’t KNOW about him, but he’s as good a bet as anyone to be the best hitter in the game this year. Betts – Primed. Blackmon […]

Trea Turner – Unique cats circa 2018 make him a legit 1st rounder, but he’s got work to do as a hitter. Correa – Keep him on the field. Lindor – Why doesn’t he run more? How is he better than Jose Ramirez? Corey Seager – Injury concerns appear unfounded, could be a bargain. Bogaerts […]

Arenado – And one of these years he’s going to get lucky. Bryant – A 2nd-round steal and it’s happening in some leagues. Machado – Same thing except it’s happening in most leagues Js Ramirez 2B – What a player in five cats and real baseball. Rendon – As I said in WGB, room to […]

Altuve – I can see taking him over Trout. Jose Ramirez 3B – What a player. Dee Gordon – ADP of 28 is too high. Cano – ADP of 90 is way too low. Dozier – They assume he’ll hit .269 but he has hit .236 too. And what, 15 SBs? ChrisTaylor OF – It’s […]

Goldschmidt – We may have seen his best but five cats will be there. Votto – 1st rounder going in the 2nd. Freeman – Same thing. Rizzo – Same thing. Abreu – Just a notch below, but hasn’t had his big year yet. Encarnacion – DH’s don’t get hurt in the field. Yes, he could […]
