Jacob deGrom is worth the risk Friday

Hey, everyone. Jared from Fantasy Cruncher here. I’ll be writing the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice articles every week for FantasyPros this year. Really excited to share my thoughts and recommended plays with you throughout the season! This evening, we have a massive 15-game slate to navigate. Keep in mind that lineup lock is just after 7 pm EST. For reference throughout the season, be sure to bookmark our overview of MLB Park Factors and how to Use Weather to Your Advantage in MLB DFS. Also, check out our GPP and Cash Games Primers to learn more about different daily fantasy game types specific to MLB. Create Optimal FanDuel lineups using our DFS Lineup Optimizer tool >>

Weather

Potential weather-related concerns appear to be present for us in Texas and maybe Cincinnati, but nothing is a sure thing at this point. Keep a close eye on the news as you head into lineup lock.

Overall Thoughts

If you followed our approach on Wednesday, you probably made out pretty well in cash games. Kevin Pillar was a key pivot off of Brandon Guyer whose game was washed out with a postponement. Craig Gentry was a surprise scratch, so I made a last minute change to Travis Jankowski which turned out to be just mediocre when all is said and done. For the Friday slate, I’ll be looking to invest in a SP that may not have an easy match-up on paper, but is throwing extremely well to start the year. The good news is that we have plenty of nice situations to attack with bats, as guys like Alex Cobb, Mat Latos and others are taking the hill.
