MLB Daily Fantasy Primer: Sunday (9/19)

Gerrit Cole

I hope you guys enjoy this slate because it will be one of the final ordinary Sundays of the season. We’re getting towards the end, which means lineups and rotations will look stranger than ever. We’ve seen a lot of that recently, with pitchers randomly getting pulled and key batters seeing tons of rest days. The good news is that we did well on Friday, and we’re going to look to build off of that momentum here. With that in mind, let’s kick things off with the pitchers!

Gerrit Cole (NYY) vs. CLE

Cole has been the best pitcher in fantasy for three years now, and this spot is almost impossible to fade. This season, the Cy Young favorite has a 2.75 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 12.3 K/9 rate, thanks to a 1.35 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 13.0 K/9 rate across his last six starts. That's terrible news for a Cleveland club that ranks 27th in OBP, 23rd in wOBA, and 24th in OPS. Cole being a -320 favorite only adds to his value as the best pitcher on this slate.
