4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 8/2/17
Chris Taylor, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers
FanDuel Price: $3,900
Chris Taylor has every right to be happy with his performance lately, but he's getting a little greedy with that salary. Priced as the most expensive Los Angeles Dodgers hitter above superior teammates Corey Seager, Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger, it's starting to get out of hand these days. Despite his recent hot play, a .417 BABIP and .326 expected weight on-base average (xwOBA) suggest he's performing way over his head.
Furthermore, for all of Julio Teheran's issues this season, he's remained respectable against righties with a 21.0% strikeout rate, 4.5% walk rate, and 24.2% hard-hit rate.
Due to his perch atop the Dodgers' lineup, you can still consider Taylor in tournament stacks in case they go off, but you're better off sticking with southpaws.
