MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Rundown – April 16th, 2015
Welcome to Thursday’s edition of the Daily Fantasy Rundown with “leonem”, “dinkpiece” and “thenumbersguy”. Each day throughout the MLB season our daily MLB scouting reports will highlight the best top, value and cheap plays of the day based on the Daily Fantasy Industry’s pricing for salary cap games. The goal of our analysis is to help you improve consistency and become a better player long-term.
Heads up. If you sign up for an account on Thursday (today), PDL will put $5 into your account (added manually, be patient!)
Weather: No major issues tonight. Please see Meteorologist Mark Paquette’s game by game weather forecasts below the Analysis.
If any weather situations shift drastically, we will keep you updated with lineup alerts so make sure to check your email inbox up until roster lock.
Top Play: Buster Posey (SF) (less than ideal matchup at home and R/R but a fine option in tournaments if going cheaper at pitcher)
Jarrod Saltalamacchia (MIA) – On a short slate, you’ll want to spend on pitching and a good way to get the salary cap relief to do that is to pencil in Salty at catcher. The switch hitting Saltalamacchia is much better from the left side of the plate, where he has a solid career .338 wOBA, much better than his lowly .265 mark as a RHB. Salty will be hitting from the left side of the plate today against RHP Dillon Gee who has allowed a .341 wOBA and 1.30 HR/9 to LHBs since 2012.
