Do you want to learn how to swim away from the sharks? Play daily fantasy baseball over on Fantasy Aces and you’ll be able to start out, learn and win big money in a much more laid back atmosphere where each contest isn’t full of people who play DFS for a living.  


The Minnesota and Detriot game is not looking good to be played at all today.  I would fade it completely.  The Pittsburgh and Cincinnati game could very well be delayed as well with a possibility of a cancellation.  I am subbing in Kendall Graveman vs. Texas as another pitching option.  He pitched well in the spring but does lack strikeout upside but is cheap and should get a win.

It is a split schedule across the sites.  Fantasy Aces has split their slates so only pricing currently available is for the afternoon games.  I will update the DFS playbook as more information on final lineups becomes available.  Stephen Strasburg and Matt Harvey are the top options but unfortunately they are facing each other.  Harvey is incredibly cheap on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
