4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 5/16/17
Tonight is one of those nights where there's no easy choice at pitcher.
On the high end, we have four players surpassing the $10,000 mark on FanDuel -- Dallas Keuchel ($10,900), Yu Darvish ($10,600), Stephen Strasburg ($10,400), and Zack Greinke ($10,300). Of the four, a revitalized Greinke surprisingly has the best SIERA (2.95), strikeout rate (28.4%), walk rate (4.4%) and swinging-strike rate (13.5%), which makes him an intriguing choice despite pitching in hitter-friendly Chase Field.
We also have some high-upside value plays in Eduardo Rodriguez ($7,800), with his 29.6% strikeout rate, and Jimmy Nelson ($7,800), who gets the San Diego Padres on the road (25.5% strikeout rate vs. righties). J.C. Ramirez ($7,200) is also in a good matchup against the Chicago White Sox, who have the lowest implied team total on the slate.
There are too many good hitting spots to list them all here, but keep an eye on the winds blowing out in Wrigley, which is looking like a great opportunity to attack the visiting Bronson Arroyo.
Without further ado, here are four guys to avoid on tonight's main slate.
