3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 6/29/17
Like most days Clayton Kershaw ($12,500) takes the mound, he's the top pitching play of the day. And judging by the Los Angeles Angels' implied team total (3.11), it's not even all that close. His numbers remain slightly down from last year, but you'll never scoff at a 3.09 SIERA and 29.2% strikeout rate.
However, if you want to pivot in tournaments, your options open up greatly. Chris Archer ($10,400) always has GPP-winning upside, Jimmy Nelson ($8,700) is sporting a 27.7% strikeout rate since the start of May, and J.A. Happ ($8,400) is in a potentially fruitful spot against the Baltimore Orioles, whose active roster strikes out at a 25.0% clip against southpaws.
Let's narrow down your choices on tonight's eight-game FanDuel main slate, and identify three guys to avoid.
