We have a big day game slate this Sunday, with 10 matchups to work with. For fantasy managers in weekly leagues, Sunday is crunch time as it’s the end of the week before a new matchup and/or new lineup. For DFS players, it’s often a chance to play with a full slate and watch a bunch of early games since it’s often a getaway day for MLB teams. Let’s take a peek at what we have today.

Sunday’s Starting Pitcher Strategy

Pitchers with high price tags that I’m avoiding today are Kyle Gibson, Nathan Eovaldi, and Chris Bassitt.
