Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings – 4/19/16

Trey Rose (Featured BBBA Fantasy Baseball Writer/Owner – dynastydigest.sportsblog.com) 

P – Marcus Stroman (vs. Baltimore Orioles): $7,700. I wouldn’t typically suggest starting a pitcher against the Orioles offense, but I think Stroman can handle them.

The pitching match-ups are brutal on Tuesday, so Stroman could be a steal at such a low price point. I’m taking a huge risk here, but I’m hoping the lower price point on Stroman will allow me to afford some elite bats to make up for the difference.

P – Ervin Santana (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,000. Santana doesn’t have much history against the Brewers, but can they really be that difficult to get out? They are currently the 26th best offense in baseball and Santana is a crafty veteran.

I’m strictly playing a match-up here and hoping Santana can take care of a less than mediocre offense.

Strong Player Starts (And Not) From Around The League: National League East

Bryce Harper emerged as the premiere player in the National League during the 2015 season. At Age 22, he 3 Slashed .330/.460/.649 with 42 HRs. 38 - 2B. 118 Runs Scored and 124 Walks. His plate discipline is incredible, and he pulled off these numbers despite the rest of the club battling injuries and lackluster play. If they can all up their game, Harper's talent will be elevated even higher. Harper won his 1st MVP Award in 2015.

Tigers/Indians + Cubs Eliminated From MLB Shutout Survivor 2016: But Cubs Have 10/11 Variations Complete In MLB Runs Scoring Survivor

The Cubs may have been eliminated from MLB Shutout Survivor yesterday. however they have run through and incredible 10 of the 11 different variation ( 0 - 10 runs scored) though just 12 games.. They just need to score 3 runs in a game to complete the category. It could sow it up as early as tonight when they face the St. Louis Cardinals in a NL Central showdown.

Chuck Booth (Owner/Lead  Analyst)

So I said last at the end of the last week that the Cubs were poised to win the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor competition, and now they are just 1 run variation short (they need 3 runs in a game).

They could win the category tonight when they renew their NL Central rivalry with the St. Louis Cardinals.

This is all possible because they were blanked 2 – 0 by Tyler Chatwood at Wrigley yesterday, coupled with 2 Nolan Arenado Homers.

Cleveland was eliminated by a 6 – 0 shutout on Sunday as well.  The New York Mets took 2 of the 3 games in the Interleague series.  Since the Tribe has played so few games, they were assigned the 18th place finish already.

Finally, the Tigers were bageled 1 – 0 by Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros.  Detroit is also tied for last place in the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor – with owning 5 different results with the Padres, Rays and Jays.

Quite surprising with their potent offense, that Toronto has not tallied 8 runs in a game yet, it is believable they have not scored zero or runs though.  Read the rest of this entry
