Daily Fantasy Rundown – August 18 MLB DFS Picks and Analysis
Welcome to Tuesday’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.
Weather: Couple of games to monitor for delays in PIT, STL, BLT and potentially CHC. PPD seems unlikely in all those locations.

Brian McCann (NYY) – McCann’s power is always worth targeting in Yankee Stadium against below average RHP. Since coming to the Yankees in 2014, McCann has posted a .188 ISO against RHP. This season he owns a .416 wOBA and .340 ISO at home against RHP after posting a .319 wOBA and .219 ISO in the same settings last season. Mike Pelfrey has allowed a .333 wOBA against LHBs since 2013. Catcher is deep with value options, so McCann’s price tag is better suited for stacks or mini-stacks with other Yankees, but he rates as our top catching option.
