FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice: Saturday (8/17) PREMIUM
Welcome to the FanDuel MLB Lineup Advice primer for Saturday, August 17. Take note that these recommendations were organized earlier in the day, and circumstances could change once the lineup cards are released. However, the following players represent your best targets to consider, and any notable contingencies will be outlined in their write-ups. We will be looking at the nine-game main slate starting at 7:05 p.m. ET.
Jacob deGrom (NYM): $11,500 at Kansas City
The Mets’ righty doesn’t need much explanation at this point of the season. He has been rolling along, and I would be shocked if that doesn’t continue in tonight’s matchup against a Kansas City team that ranks 27th in wRC+. New York steps in as a convincing -235 road favorite, and Kauffman Stadium’s pitcher-friendly atmosphere doesn’t hurt either. Add it all up, and deGrom is worth the premium salary.
