Zach’s MLB DFS Cheat Sheet for May 21, 2019

Zach shares his short list of plays for the MLB DFS slate May 21, 2019.

In this column, we share top options at 3 different price tiers to help you build your lineups.

Remember, our cheat sheets serve as a reference point for your shortlists and are not designed to be completely exhaustive of all plays we recommend you have in your FC Player Pool on a given slate. Rather, they are the ones we feel are the strongest for a high exposure percentage so you get an idea of the options we like most of all.
