Howard Bender pores over the data and match-ups to bring you his favorite pitchers and hitters to use for Friday's MLB DFS main slate contests.
What's going on, #FANation!
Super-excited to be back on the MLB DFS Playbook today for this massively tasty 14-game slate!
We've got a nice array of starting pitching to look at from some strong high-priced options to a couple of bargain-basement guys to help you save some money where needed. We're a little top-heavy today which could make it a challenge to squeeze in some bats from the Coors Field game, but with enough options that high up, we can nickel & dime our lineups to save a few bucks if we really have to. The weather in Colorado is supposed to be low-to-mid 50s, but the precipitation should be minimal come game time.
But really, in looking at the rest of this slate and some of the match-ups, you may not even have to worry too much about getting shares of Coors. One or two, at the most, might be all you need. We'll discuss further here...
**UPDATE** I've got a couple of White Sox in today's Playbook, but recent word broke that Clay Buchholz has been scratched from the start due to a shoulder issue and now the Blue Jays will go with Daniel Hudson as an opener and this will be a bullpen game. I still like the White Sox I recommended, though I am slightly less bullish on them now tnan I was earlier this morning. The Blue Jays pen has been overworked lately, throwing 28 innings over the last seven days, sixth-most in the majors, but they've also posted strong ratios and a K/9 just under 10 for the week. It could be rough waters for the White Sox hitters in the first couple of innings, but the Jays are on the cusp of overuse and that could be trouble.
