MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Friday (9/24) PREMIUM
There are 15 games on the main slate at DraftKings. However, there are only 13 games on the main slate at FanDuel.
Friday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
Logan Gilbert sticks out like a sore thumb as a value option on tonight's slate. However, I'm also digging the middle-tier front-line starters, Dylan Cease, Jose Berrios, and -- on DraftKings -- Max Fried.
Cash Game Recommendations:
Dylan Cease (CHW) at CLE
Since August 1, Cease's plate-discipline numbers are nearly on par with Gerrit Cole's. Do I have your attention now? Seriously, according to FanGraphs, he's generated a jaw-dropping 13.1 CSW% that's a mere half-percentage point below Cole's 31.6 CSW%. During those nine starts, he's recorded a 3.97 ERA, 3.47 xFIP, 3.27 SIERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 37.0 K%.
