Heists And Homers returns for another weekend of MLB DFS picks, on a day where Jose Fernandez makes yet another return from injury to the Miami Marlins pitching staff. The question is, at $11,200, is the reward of drafting him worth the risk of a bad game? I guess you will just have to continue reading to find out if Fernandez will make for a solid selection.
Aside from Fernandez, it is a fairly light day for starting pitchers. In fact, Fernandez is the only hurler priced at more than $10,000. Following him on the salary cap list are Madison Bumgarner, Noah Syndergaard and Justin Verlander. I would actually consider drafting all three of them over Fernandez but, I also like a couple of more starters priced far lower than any of the aforementioned big-name starting pitchers.
Whatever pitchers you fancy, make sure to leave some cap space to load up on a few potent hitters, as a well-rounded lineup is what wins MLB DFS leagues. You want to make sure to pay attention to the history and trends of some streaky players, making sure to watch out for what they have done over the past week. Then again, you could just continue to read Heists And Homers each and every day throughout the rest of the regular season, as I have done all of the hard work already. Good luck!
