Daily Fantasy Rundown – September 12 MLB DFS Picks and Analysis
Welcome to Saturday’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: PPD risks in BLT and PHL. The 2nd game in NYY looks like a ppd risk while the 1st game has a delay/stoppage risk late. CLE and PIT have minor delay risk but no ppd risk.
Please see Meteorologist Mark Paquette’s game by game weather forecasts below the Analysis.

Miguel Montero (CHC) – Saturday’s catcher recommendation is largely the same as Friday. There aren’t many catcher options with favorable matchups that typically hit in good lineup spots, so we’re willing to stretch down the order for a plus matchup. Montero remains a solid hitter against RHP (.338 wOBA, .145 ISO since 2012) and rookie Jerad Eickhoff has been susceptible in a very small sample to LHBs (.484 wOBA allowed at the big league level). The Cubs have an implied run total approaching five and Montero is a cheaper way to get exposure to them at a thin position. Teammate Kyle Schwarber (CHC) represents our top play at the position, where eligible, and he is worth spending on.
