4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 5/3/17

Robbie Ray may have a 30.2% strikeout rate, but he's not worth the risk against the Nationals. Who else should you fade in daily fantasy baseball today?

For the second day in a row, we have all 30 teams on deck for the FanDuel main slate.

Tonight's pitcher menu features a trio of stud hurlers in Jacob deGrom ($11,000), Carlos Carrasco ($10,600), and Jake Arrieta ($10,100). Arrieta is arguably the safest choice with his matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies, but it might be hard to resist deGrom's 34.4% strikeout rate and 17.6% swinging-strike rate.

For hitters, there is no shortage of options, with a whole slew of mediocre arms on the mound. The highlights include the Boston Red Sox taking on a struggling Kevin Gausman (5.52 SIERA), and the Houston Astros getting Nick Martinez (5.11 career SIERA).

Now, shall we take a look at who to avoid?
