Daily Fantasy Rundown – September 9 MLB DFS Picks and Analysis
Welcome to Wednesday’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: Scattered thunderstorms in WSH, NYY, CIN and, to a lesser extent, PHI may cause problems. The 3 games in California will all see much above average temperatures while the LAA sees a slight threat for t-storms.
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.
Slate Note: I think this is a really good slate for tournaments and a really murky slate for cash games. The lack of clarity and depth at starting pitcher makes cash games a challenge. We will likely see heavy overlap on starting pitchers and the starting pitchers in question come with elevated risks. It’s a slate that I’m going to lighten the load in cash games and focus on multi-entry tournaments a bit more.
Derek Norris (SD) – Chris Rusin has historically struggled against RHBs, allowing a .359 wOBA, 32.5 percent hard hit rate, and 1.24 HR/9. The Padres have a solid implied run total of 4.3 runs and Norris typically hits second against LHP which provides him an expected plate appearance advantage over many other catching options. He ranks inside our Top 40 overall hitters and represents one of the better values at the catcher position.
