3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 4/20/17

The Royals have a strong matchup against Andrew Cashner, but is everyone still in play? Who else should you avoid in MLB DFS on Thursday?

We have quite the pitcher selection on tonight's seven-game FanDuel main slate!

Noah Syndergaard, Stephen Strasburg, Danny Duffy, Carlos Martinez, James Paxton and Aaron Nola are all options. Syndergaard ($11,200) is taking on the Philadelphia Phillies, who have the lowest implied team total, making him the safest cash game choice, but you can make an argument for anyone on that list in tournaments.

Of course, the downside to all this pitching is it limits our choices on the hitting side! And many of the weaker pitchers either have high ground-ball rates, limit hard contact, or are pitching in run-suppressing ballparks.

Let's take a look at some of these matchups, and see which guys are best avoided.
