Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 7/28/16

P- Cole Hamels (vs. Kansas City Royals): $9,900. Hamels is coming off a successful start against the Royals his last time out. He threw 5.1 innings, giving up only one unearned run. He has won both his starts since the all-star break, giving up only two runs in 13.1 innings pitched.

P- Tyler Anderson (vs. New York Mets): $7,700. Anderson is facing an offense who has struggled all season long. Over the last seven days, the Mets are ranked 28th in OPS and 29th in runs scored. Over Anderson’s last eight starts, he has given up no more than three runs in seven of those starts. He has also walked two or fewer batters in those starts, which is great for daily fantasy.



Midseason Top 100 MLB Prospect Rankings Analysis (11-20)

Below you can find my analysis for the prospects ranked between 11-20 for the 2016 midseason top prospect list. If you want to see the full top 100 list, please visit the following link: SEE THE TOP 100 PROSPECT RANKINGS. I will be posting daily analysis of every player listed in the top 100, so please follow my blog and other social media for updates.


  1. Alex Reyes (STL, 21 Years Old, RHP): If you are looking for a frontline starter, look no further. Reyes has the upside of a top-10 pitcher in the next few years. He has an elite fastball-breaking ball combination and his changeup has developed quite nicely. He has been known to touch 102-103 MPH with his fastball, so that speaks for itself. He has struggled this season at Triple-A, but that doesn’t take away from his potential. In 55 innings pitched, he owns a 5.07 ERA, 51 hits against, 79 strikeouts, and 27 walks. He has an elite strikeout rate, but his walk rate does scare me. He was just scratched from his most recent start in the minors, so many people believe the Cardinals are preparing to call him up to the big leagues.


MLB Reports MLB DFS (FanDuel) Rostered Players Breakdown From Tuesday Nights Entries


BY Hugh Hawkins

Despite having a poor night at MLB DFS on Tuesday, we did promise you a look at our rostered players for the night.  Again. we had a fantastic beginning to the evening, and things derailed from there.  It happens.  MLB baseball is so unpredictable at times.
We have still been on the upside more on the year for this formula than down.  We always have a chance to win a GPP if things break right, and that thrill alone is worth playing our formula.
Below listed are the players we used for a 9 team stacked wheel with 4 pitchers.  (we had a shade over 150 entries for the night.)  There a few players like Posey. Wallace and Nava who were placed on a few rosters to round out the 35K dollar limit.
We had for team stacking purposes: BAL/BOS/SEA/TB/ARI/MIL/CHC/HOU and TOR for stacks.  4 clubs did really well (Brewers, Red Sox, M’s  and Jays.) 1 team was alright with the Stros at least hitting 3 HRs.  Arizona was okay at 4 runs. and 3 clubs killed us with the O’s plating only 3 runs. while the Rays scored 2 and Cubs were bageled.
Ervin Santana threw a CG, but his team failed to score for him.  His FPP were not bad at all, as where Marcus Stroman, who held a nice lead before a 3 run HR chased him from a victory.  Even Kyle Hendricks pitched okay.  Steven Wright definitely took a powder at Fenway Park.
Unfortunately we did not have any action on the Angels other than Nava, and the Giants/Reds game saw some longballs at AT @ T Park.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – July 27, 2016


Chris Sweda / Chicago Tribune

Aroldis Chapman is a Cub.

That is his right to be.

But what he said, what Joe Maddon said and what USA Today writer Bob Nightengale wrote shows why Domestic Violence is not going away anytime soon as long as people continue to belittle it.

It is a “Be a Decent Human” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Yunel Escobar, Brandon Crawford, Tyler Skaggs, Bud Norris, Jerad Eickhoff, Marwin Gonzalez, Ervin Santana and Adam Duvall all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.
