MLB DFS Playbook: May 31
Howard Bender pores over the data and match-ups to bring you his favorite plays for Friday's MLB DFS main slate contests.
Welcome to the MLB DFS PLaybook for Friday, May 31.
Let's hope the weather stays clear and the managers go with their usual lineups. Yesterday was an outright nightmare and while we still cashed with our Mike Minor lineups, the rest of the slate was a veritable disaster. We had great plays in the Playbook like Mike Moustakas , Yasmani Grandal and, of course, Hyun Jin Ryu, but when building lineups, the Yankees/Red Sox rain-out coupled with a number of players sitting who should have been playing threw us for a bit of a loop. With such a big slate tonight, we should have a much better time. We'll lock plays and have top-flight pivots on hand, so let's crush this slate!
Remember, there's a Coors game on the slate so we're definitely going to want to get a piece of that game. I may not list everyone from the Rockies or the Blue jays, but most are certainly in-play.
Also, I thought about a lot of Royals here against Ariel Jurado , but I don't really know a lot about the right-hander. I'd say the lefty bats are in-play but I may not totally sign off on them as the team has been struggling at the plate lately.
Here's who else I like tonight:
