 Vlad's Hitter Breakdown - 9/26

A very wonky 12-game slate that will require close attention up until lock, just like in NBA. As was the case yesterday, and will be all week: some teams will pull hitters and starting pitchers earlier than we would like. That means being careful loading up on Red Sox’ bats, as well as possibly those on the Athletics and Indians...

Our final Tuesday slate is an ominous one with all the volatility in the air. Let’s start with the weather where we are very likely to have a handful of trouble spots, starting with a possible PPD with the Orioles-Red Sox. Similar, but not as gruesome delay issues with ATL-NYM, MIL-STL, PIT-CHC and CLE-CHW. To add to the madness, we will likely see many offensive starters listed below who don’t play today and pitchers who get pulled from their starts early.

Very sad as it is our final week of the baseball season, hence the last Monday I’ll be bringing you hitters to consider for your DFS lineups. The silver lining is that we have a full 12-game slate with plenty of rock-solid pitchers to choose from. Most on DK will select one of the Big Four (Kluber, Severino, Strasburg, Kershaw) with an incredibly consistent Jameson Taillon trailing not far behind, also priced in the five-figure range. Nathan Eovaldi will likely be the DK SP2 chalk value who cash game players roster but may be on a pitch count. We also have a handful of landmines listed below the 7k range, waiting to explode, so tread carefully.

 Vlad's Hitter Breakdown - 9/21

Our second to last Friday slate features 14 games with the Chitown rivalry game taking place earlier in the day. It’s the return of Trevor Bauer, though the Indians will likely take it slowly with him. Both Bauer and Sale are not expected to hit five innings, so be careful using them in your lineups today.
