Welcome to my FanDuel MLB DFS breakdown for the 7/3 main slate! This article will help you condense your player pool and build your optimal cash and GPP lineups on FanDuel.
Happy Wednesday DFSers and boy is it a good day! If you missed the announcement that was plastered all over Twitter, the now formerly Fantasy CPR team has migrated and taking over FanSided Fantasy, as THE home for all things fantasy in the FanSided network.
This will provide us with a great opportunity to increase our reach and also interact with new members of the daily fantasy community.
The goal of this piece is to help you condense your player pool during your preliminary research and get you started off on the right foot when it comes to lineup construction.
For those of you new to my FanDuel MLB DFS breakdowns, I will run through the main slate and provide both my favorite cash and GPP option at each respective position, while highlighting some honorable mentions. For the OF category specifically, I will be including value options instead of honorable mentions, as the high-end OFers tend to be the top cash and GPP plays.
We have 14 games on tonight’s main slate, with each match-up listed below along with the teams’ respective implied run totals (IRTs):
New York Yankees (N/A) @ New York Mets (N/A)
Chicago Cubs (N/A) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (N/A)
Boston Red Sox (5.7) @ Toronto Blue Jays (3.4)
Baltimore Orioles (N/A) @ Tampa Bay Rays (N/A)
Milwaukee Brewers (4.9) @ Cincinnati Reds (5.7)
Philadelphia Phillies (4.9) @ Atlanta Braves (5.8)
Los Angeles Angels (5.9) @ Texas Rangers (5.3)
Detroit Tigers (N/A) @ Chicago White Sox (N/A)
Houston Astros (7.2) @ Colorado Rockies (6.4)
Cleveland Indians (5.1) @ Kansas City Royals (4.1)
Minnesota Twins (4.8) @ Oakland Athletics (4.3)
San Francisco Giants (4.0) @ San Diego Padres (4.6)
Arizona Diamondbacks (3.1) @ Los Angeles Dodgers (5.0)
St. Louis Cardinals (5.0) @ Seattle Mariners (4.6)
As you can see, we have a Coors slate, which should dominate the cash game builds. With that said, Coors slates are always a fantastic opportunity to get away from the masses in large-field GPPs and you will see that exact trend in this article.
Now that we have the IRTs out of the way, let’s get to the breakdown!
