MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Monday (4/19)

Apr 19, 2021

The starting pitching discussion begins and ends with Joe Musgrove on Monday.

After the standalone, early-afternoon — really, morning — contest, Monday has a nice, 6-game set for the main slate. It actually was a 7-game slate, but the Minnesota Twins have already postponed their third consecutive game due to COVID-related issues. Most DFS sites will either exclude this game entirely or indicate that the players will not accrue fantasy points, but obviously, make sure to not use anyone from the Twins or Athletics on Monday.

Otherwise, we have a group of pitchers on the mound without any clear “ace.” That doesn’t mean someone won’t pitch like one, but it will likely lead to people prioritizing bats over arms. That is, as long as the pricing allows. Keep this in mind as you read through the remainder of this article. There is an edge to be found in how we can expect most people to build their lineups, but it varies by DFS website.
