 MLB DFS Cash Game Breakdown - 5/23
Posted by Ted Schuster on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 16:58

We have a full 15 games slate with every team in play.  There is a nice balance of pitching with Clayton Kershaw at the top and some solid mid-tier options.  You will have plenty of ways to go with your lineup building but for the hitters it will start with the Arizona Diamondbacks.  They will be popular in your cash games as they easily have the highest expected run total of any team on the slate.  We do have some weather issues to deal that we will need to keep an eye on.  The Cardinals also have some very interesting pricing on FanDuel with all of them priced below 2k.

 DFS Hitting Breakdown - 5/23
Posted by Ray Flowers on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 16:57

A quick primer for the Hitting Coach piece that will appear seven days a week at Guru Elite. There will be a smattering of data, pertinent to setting your daily squad up. There will be ballpark data. Which parks favor what type of hitters? There will be some BvP data, and yes, it does matter. We will try to list some umpire data if there is anything significant to be gleaned from it. In the end, I’ll throw all the data into the hopper and try to come up with some solid daily advice on the men that swing the lumber.

 DFS Pitching Breakdown - 5/23
Posted by Broc Miller on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 16:56

Definitions For Advanced Stats:

K%:  Strikeout Percentage = Strikeouts / Batters Faced. A 20 K% is considered average for a pitcher. 27 K% is considered excellent and 15 K% is considered poor.

For hitters, it measures how often a hitter strikes out on a per plate appearance basis. 20.0 K% is considered average. 25.0 K% is considered poor for hitters (we like that when picking pitchers) and 12.5 K% is considered great (we don’t like that when choosing a pitcher.) However, when looking at an entire team’s K%, last year's average was 21.2 K%. The higher the number, the better for when you’re looking for a pitcher with upside.

BB%: Walk Percentage = Walks / Batters Faced. 7.7 BB% is considered average for a pitcher. The lower the better. 4.5 BB% is considered excellent and 8.5 BB% is considered poor.

BALLPARK DATA

 The data in this chart should be read thusly.

The breakdown is by ballpark. Therefore, if it says BOS it is referring to Fenway. There are two parts to the chart. LHB refers to all the left-handed batters hitting that park. RHB refers to all the right-handed batters hitting at that park. It is a ranking for the park for left-handed and right-handed batters.
