To help you find the best daily baseball plays and values almost every morning, you can find my FanDuel picks right here at FanSided. My daily goal is to provide you with the information you need to select the best available options to build your own lineup that can bring home a win.
In order to help you find the position and price point you need, there are a variety of options on each slide such as high-salary options, mid-range options, and high-value options at each position. I base each of my picks on the current form of each player, history against opponent, and the matchups each player will face in their respective contests.
I have found it helpful to rank my picks to show the strength of each selection. For a full explanation of the rating system, please visit the last slide of this post, which will also contain an example lineup for reference. It is highly suggested that you construct your own customized roster with the players you like the most, but you are welcome to use these example lineups as a place to begin.
In my FanDuel MLB picks, all salary references and references to “fantasy points” refer to FanDuel pricing and scoring. If you have any questions about my picks for today or any of our FanSided fantasy baseball coverage, you can leave them at the bottom of the page in the comments section.
