Prime Pitchers – 6/27/17

Max Scherzer will be excluded from this list as he is the obvious cash game option tonight against a lackluster Cubs team who ranks 3rd last in total hits. If you are willing to cough up $12,000 for him then you should be starting him. Read more

Prime Pitchers – 6/17/17

With an Early-Only slate larger than the Main slate, I will be focusing on the 4:05 ET lock and likely fading the main slate. We’ve got a plethora of pitching options atop the position, but the necessity to pay all the way up is not necessarily there.

Below are my top three pitching options for today’s slate and why I think they warrant consideration.

Prime Pitchers – 6/11/17

We’ve got our usual 1:05 PM ET Sunday Main Slate on Fanduel this afternoon and some intriguing pitching options toeing the rubber. For this edition of Prime Pitching, I’ll be switching it up and including my two favorite pitching options on the slate while also writing up my two least favorite options (in other words, two pitchers to stack against).

MLB Sunday Late Slate Breakdown: 6/4/17

Hello, everyone here on Fantasy Forecast! Ben Knee here, your new PGA and Soccer DFS contributor. Today, I am writing a MLB Sunday Late Slate Breakdown.

Pitcher

  • Must PlayKyle Hendricks – Cubs are favored -170 which gives him a nice boost to get the win. Wrigley Field is the 6th most pitcher friendly park.
  • Value PlayJeff Hoffman – Denver is the favorite by -145. San Diego’s lineups has a strikeout rate of 24% verses righties. Strikeouts are very important if you want to take down a GPP and his salary is very cheap.

Prime Pitchers – 6/1/17

June is already here and the baseball season is flying by. I’ve been meaning to crank out articles lately but since starting a full-time job, my opportunities have been few and far between. With that being said, I’m going to continue to do what I can to get out content for you guys and piggyback off of Cody, who’s been KILLING it with WNBA, so hopefully my MLB articles can follow suit.
