August 15, 2018 – The Daily MLB DFS Pitching Rundown
Featuring in-depth analysis of the starting pitchers (SPs) on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 (8/15). Daily fantasy baseball analysis for today's MLB DFS slate to help you build winning cash game and tournament lineups on FanDuel & DraftKings.
Building winning MLB DFS lineups on FanDuel and DraftKings starts with making the right pitcher selections.
Let's have a look at the day's MLB DFS SP options to consider across the board. As you've come to expect from this column over the last couple years (or if you're reading for the first time - welcome!), I will walk through the top and secondary plays that you'll want on your short list as you make decisions on who to ultimately trot out there in your cash and GPP lineups. In addition to that, we'll also highlight one "daily dice roll" name to consider as a lower own, high ROI upside tournament play.
Slate & Weather Overview
- We have 10 games on the main slate today with another 4 in the afternoon (early). In that group I think the Chris Archer / Jose Berrios match-up is awfully enticing on the mound while Carlos Rodon may end up being the more profitable play in his own right. In any case, we will focus on the main slate as we always do and help you figure out the right way to approach pitching decisions.
- Note that weather appears to be cooperative this evening, with a low-medium risk of precipitation in St Louis at this time. Keep an eye out as we approach lineup lock to see if it gets better (or worse) before making your final decisions.
