DFS MLB Daily Plays

Thursday, September 3rd DFS MLB Plays

Tonight is a very short 5 game slate with a Coors game. There will be heavy overlap tonight and the pitching options aren’t great. I recommend taking the night off and playing CFB or playing lightly. The write-up is going to be more like a cheat sheet today because of the clear cut situations and limited players. Any player listed is in play in all formats tonight.

2 Cash, 3 GPP for FanDuel and 1 Cash, 2 GPP for DraftKings.

Pitching Rankings

  1. Francisco Liriano
  2. Jordan Zimmermann
  3. Taylor Jungmann
  4. Edinson Volquez
  5. Mat Latos
  6. Colin Rea

Pitching is far from ideal tonight with Liriano ranking as the top play on the road in a huge negative park shift against a team that hits LHP very well. Liriano remains the top option but a high variance top option. The Brewers are a fine stack tonight with the expected ownership on Liriano. Jordan Zimmermann is next in line tonight and likely the most realistic cash game play with the largest win probability at home. Unfortunately he will be the highest owned pitcher due to the short slate and pricing restrictions while trying to target Coors Field. Taylor Jungmannn has big tournament upside against the Pirates who struggle offensively at times. Overall just an ugly situation at pitcher tonight.
