Daily Fantasy Rundown- September 7 MLB DFS Picks and Analysis
Welcome to Monday’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: Delay threats in CHW and a late game in KC. In the KC game the threat is slightly larger and being later makes it trickier.
Please see Meteorologist Mark Paquette’s game by game weather forecasts below the Analysis.

Buster Posey (SFG) – Posey is $3,200 on FanDuel and he will have the platoon edge in a great hitting environment (Chase Field). I’m not sure why his price point is so low but we’re not willing to roster anyone else on any site that has priced him like an average hitter. Posey is a remarkable hitter vs. LHP (.373 wOBA/146 wRC+/.183 ISO) and even though Patrick Corbin is a good pitcher, he’s not untouchable vs. RHBs (has surrendered a .320 wOBA/1.96 HR per 9 to righties in the last few seasons). Posey plays half of his games at AT&T stadium, a venue that deflates right handed power by around 10-12 percent below the league average). Chase Field is much friendlier for righties (inflates power by around five percent above the league norm). It’s close to a full slate (11 games) but Posey rates as the top option at the catcher position and it’s not close.
