Daily Fantasy Baseball – Cole on the Mound

I am going with Cole tonight in daily fantasy, just not the one you are probably thinking about. Cole Hamels pitches tonight. As bad a year as the Phillies haev had, Hamels has been reliable.  He is getting 8.19 K.9IP while yielding 0.9 HR/9IP. Earlier this month he got a...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Oh Noes, Kendrick

Kyle Kendrick may not be a Phillie pitcher next year. But he is pitching tonight, and I plan to take advantage on FanDuel. Kendrick started the year well, but has not been the same pitcher in the second half of the year. His 1.26 WHIP before the all-star break (not great,...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Kluber For Value

For late leagues tonight, the most expensive pitcher available aon FanDuel is is Zack Greinke for $9,800. Greinke is no doubt a good pitcher, getting 7.45K/9IP, yielding a WHIP of 1.15 and averaging just under 7  innings per start. Indians P Corey Kluber ($7,000), however, is available or considerably less salary, has been...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Plan Z

Looking at roster options for use in daily fantasy on FanDuel this Tuesday I like the idea of Nationals P Jordan Zimmerman ($7,200) against the Mets. Although Zimmerman does not get a lot of strikeouts (6.75/9IP) the Mets may more than make up for it on their own as they are striking...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Woof at Weaver

P Jered Weaver ($7,700) is a sneaky pitcher for purposes of daily fantasy on FanDuel. Clearly he is a decent pitcher, as he manages over 6 innings per start, a WHIP of 1.12 and a K/BB ratio of 3.18. But he gives up some runs, and the Angels have not helped...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Hamels Today

Playing NFL Fantasy today? Me too. But baseball is still playing. Let’s take a look at lineups. It is going to be tempting to use Cole Hamels today at FanDuel. He is striking out 8.11/9IP this year, the Braves are striking out more often than any NL team., and the Phillies...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Lay Wood on Wood

I have picked on the Phillies a lot this year with daily fantasy at FanDuel. What can I say? You stick with what you know. This year it means taking pitchers with a low salary but decent stuff against the Phillies. Another pitcher matches that profile tonight: P Alex Wood ($6,100)...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Pick up Cobb

My pitching pick for tonight at FanDuel is Rays P Alex Cobb ($7,300). Jose Fernandez ($9,100) is an obvious choice facing a Nationals lineup that in general has struggled to score. But the Seattle Mariners are near the bottom of the league in runs, with less than half of that total coming...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Cingrani Time

There is a small slate of games on FanDuel for this Thursday night. Which makes sense for MLB since tonight marks the return of the NFL, and that is going to draw the eyeballs. But there fantasy still beckons for the hardcore player, and I think I see a definite...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Fuld for Nothing

Tampa Bay Rays OF Sam Fuld has one at bat since August 29th. It was as a pinch hitter, and he singled. But you can take a chance on Sam Fuld for zero dollars in fantasy cap space thanks to an administrative error at FanDuel. Fuld was listed as having...
