MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Saturday (7/31)

Max Muncy

Max Muncy is a top option on DFS slates for tonight.

It’s a nine-game slate tonight, providing us a mix of high-end pitchers and bargain options with upside. However, I’m only enamored with two full stacks, despite the robust size of the slate. Instead, my preference is to pick one-offs around the top stacks. Rather than feign interest in a third stack I have no intention of using, I include only the two stacks I’m intrigued by. I’ve made up for the lack of a third stack by adding an extra value play/punt to the mix.

Saturday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Most of my roster builds in all game types will feature Yu Darvish. Simply, the Rockies are terrible on the road. Aaron Nola is a high-upside pivot in GPPs, though. I mostly prefer Joe Ross and Tyler Anderson on DraftKings' two-pitcher platform, where both have a case for usage as the SP2 in all game types.
