Daily Fantasy DFS Picks For Draft Kings 4/14/16

P- Drew Pomeranz (vs. Philadelphia Phillies) $6,700. I am loving the price of Drew Pomeranz for Thursday. He is facing an offense who is not potent by any means and he has shown a small sample size of success against the Phillies throughout his career.

In only 16 at bats total, he is holding the Phillies to a .188 opposing batting average and 3 strikeouts. I know that isn’t a lot of history, but it’s some success. During his first start of the 2016 season, he threw 5 innings giving up 2 earned runs, walking 3, and striking out 7 at Colorado, which isn’t an easy place to pitch.

I love his K rate, but he must throw 6 to 7 innings to be a big asset on Thursday.

P- Ervin Santana (vs. Chicago White Sox) $8,100. Ervin Santana has dominated the Chicago White Sox lineup throughout his career. In 110 career at bats, the White Sox lineup is only hitting .182 against him with 22 strikeouts.

I expect another strong outing from Santana against a team who he has had no trouble with in the past.

C- Jose Lobaton (vs. Julio Teheran) In 15 career at bats against Teheran, Lobaton is hitting .467 with 2 home runs, 5 RBI’s, 3 XBH, and a .556 OBP. I love Lobaton as a cheap option assuming he starts.

Make sure to follow this game as there is a chance Lobaton doesn’t start considering he is the backup to Wilson Ramos. If he does, he could be a bargain buy at this price.

M’s Get Blanked: 22 Teams Left In 2016 MLB Shutout Survivor + MLB Runs Scoring Survivor Update

Equally as poor, and in a 5 game losing themselves, the Mariners were also blanked last night 8 - 0. Seattle is now 0 - 5 at home, and can't buy any hits on home turf. 7 runs in 5 games is not the way to start your campaign at Safeco Field. This is not foreign territory for the Mariners, who routinely have the worst batting numbers at home every year. Playing games versus AL West counterparts the A's and Rangers - they have posted just an .486 OPS while at home

A quick start by Robinson Cano has quickly faded into a Batting Average of .182.  Dae-Hoo Lee and Adam Lind have collected just 3 hits in the eight total contests thus far.

Kyle Seager and Ketel Marte have provided little punch from the Left side of the infield.  I expect Seager to turn himself around, but I was one to always question why the franchise didn’t go outside the squad to bring in a new veteran shortstop.

Both clubs were eliminated from MLB Shutout Survivor, and must get their lineups back in order, or they will also fall way back in MLB Runs Scoring Survivor too, having picked off all of the low run scoring totals.

The Padres were blanked for a 4th time in 8 games, and still only have 3 different variations on their season.  This is tied with Tampa and Detroit for the fewest marks off the scoresheet, but they have played one more game than the Rays and 2 more contests than the Tigers, so they are ranked 30th in this competition.

Chicago continues to lead the movement to all 11 runs scored scenarios, with having plated a different amount of guys in every single game thus far.  All they need to complete this competition are run totals of 0, 1, 3 and 8.

Oakland, Texas, Arizona and Colorado have 6 out of the 11 run totals, but they all need to knock off some of the higher totals – unlike the Cubs. Read the rest of this entry
