3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 8/9/18
J.A. Happ, SP, New York Yankees
FanDuel Price: $8,400
J.A. Happ will return from a DL stint stemming from a bout with hand, foot, and mouth disease, and start tonight for the New York Yankees. A player returning from illness can give anyone pause when considering roster construction, and the red-hot Texas Rangers' offense makes playing Happ an even tougher choice.
Over the last two weeks, the boys from north Texas have blasted their way to a league-best .378 weighted on-base average (wOBA). They also rank seventh over the same time frame in hard-hit rate (38.3%).
Happ will need his full arsenal on display tonight to slow down a Texas offense that's been quite strong of late.
