P – Michael Pineda (vs. Chicago White Sox): $10,600. Over his last six starts, Pineda has been on fire. In that timespan, he owns a 2.74 ERA and his opponents are only batting .201. He is coming off one of his best starts of the season last time out against the Texas Rangers, in which he struck out 12 batters.
P – Sonny Gray (vs. Minnesota Twins): $5,900. Gray has faired very well against mediocre offensive teams (Rays, Reds, Brewers, Angels), but he has been blown up against elite offensive teams (Pirates, Rangers, Red Sox, Mariners) this season. Luckily, Gray will make the start against a team that has struggled offensively this year on Wednesday. During June, he had a very strong month, posting a 3.23 ERA.
Elite P- Jake Arrieta (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $13,700
Elite P- Trevor Bauer (vs. Atlanta Braves): $12,800
Elite P- Noah Syndergaard (vs. Washington Nationals): $12,200
Bargain P- Eduardo Rodriguez (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $6,600
Bargain P- Collin McHugh (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $6,900
Bargain P- Jeff Samardzija (vs. Oakland A’s): $8,400

Saturday could be a very rough day for pitchers, which is why I’m spending more money on hitters.
Out of the 15 games on the slate, 11 games are being played at a stadium that has at least a 10 MPH wind blowing towards the outfield.
Weather can play a huge role in daily fantasy, which is why the intense winds on Saturday could really shake up some of the potential pitching match-ups.
P – Aaron Nola (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $9,500
P – Ervin Santana (vs. Cleveland Indians): $7,000
