MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Friday (7/16) PREMIUM
Welcome back! With Thursday’s postponement, Friday presents the first regular-season baseball game since the All-Star Break. This means it also presents the first opportunity to put together a classic-format DFS lineup.
In a sense, we’re looking at Friday like another Opening Day. Teams are about to begin the next chapter of their respective seasons, and there’s the same feeling of “starting on the right foot.” The difference, of course, is that we have months of data at our fingertips from the start of the year.
Friday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
While we may be looking at a fresh start, of sorts, DraftKings and FanDuel are continuing with their old ways. That is, the two websites have set vastly different prices for a large number of starting pitchers. Kevin Gausman is, indeed, the highest-priced option wherever we look, but the differences are found immediately thereafter.
