4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 5/31/17
But tonight we also get Jacob deGrom ($11,200) at home against the whiffing Milwaukee Brewers. At near identical prices and implied team totals, it will be tough to choose between the two in both cash and tournaments.
James Paxton ($8,800) takes on the Colorado Rockies. Paxton provides some savings, but he comes with risk as he's coming off a lengthy stint on the disabled list. He was an absolute beast prior to his injury, though, sporting a 3.19 SIERA and 30.0% strikeout rate.
Lastly, if you're feeling lucky, Masahiro Tanaka ($8,500) is coming off a 13-punchout performance, and he has a 13.9% swinging-strike rate despite an otherwise unnoteworthy 21.1% strikeout rate.
Flipping to bats, the Boston Red Sox get a chance to feast on DFS punching bag favorite Mike Pelfrey and his 5.18 SIERA. Pelfrey hasn't had a true meltdown performance yet in 2017, but after the Sox exploded for six bombs yesterday, maybe that changes tonight.
But as always, we're primarily here for the fade calls. Here are four guys to avoid calling to your lineup tonight.
