MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Wednesday (6/16)

Jacob deGrom

Tonight’s main slate includes eight games. It’s a Jacob deGrom night, and he headlines the pitcher rankings. He’s joined by a pair of mid-tier arms and another ace. As a result, the touted stacks are deGrom-salary friendly, and the core studs and value plays/punts are comprised of players from tonight’s top stacks.

Wednesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Build around Jacob deGrom. That's it. That's the strategy. Snark aside, he's listed as the top cash games recommendation, but he's easily also the top GPP option. The second cash games recommendation, Anthony DeSclafani, is only a DraftKings option in that format as the SP2 behind deGrom. Ian Anderson is underpriced and chock full of upside, making him a GPP option at both daily fantasy providers. Finally, Zack Wheeler is a risky pivot from deGrom, with the risk coming from fading New York's ace rather than any of his own shortcomings. Interestingly, if you stack the two forthcoming value stacks together, it's possible to use deGrom and Wheeler together -- a high-upside GPP move I support.
