Zach Thompson is having a fabulous rookie season and has a bargain salary on DraftKings, making him my slam-dunk SP2 in cash games there. Another huge salary difference between these two daily fantasy providers, Eduardo Rodriguez looks reasonably priced on DraftKings. Yet he's a bargain on FanDuel.
