Daily Fantasy Baseball – Great Weekend Matchups
The popularity of daily fantasy baseball has prompted many of the popular sites to create a few alternatives to the classic nine-player roster. FanDuel’s quick pick 4×4, for example, allows contestants to create a roster of four hitters and four pitchers. For those with extensive knowledge and research on baseball’s hurlers, this contest is a great way to put that quality information to work and grow your bankroll.
Below we will examine a few matchups over the weekend that could produce some serious points for your DFS baseball lineup.
Soft Matchups for Baseball’s Hottest Team
The scorching hot Boston Red Sox will hope to tee off against a woeful Baltimore team that can’t wait for this dreadful season to be over. Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi, and J.D. Martinez are of all sure to have big weekends, as Camden Yards is somewhat of a Fenway South for each. Be on the lookout for Jackie Bradley Jr. and Steve Pearce, though, who are both available in those bottom tiers but have the potential to put up big numbers.
The Orioles pitching staff hasn’t been able to contain anyone in Boston’s lineup, really, so starting anyone from this lot will ultimately not be worth the cost. The Red Sox haven’t officially set their roster for the weekend, but it’s rumored that Chris Sale is set to return from the disabled list to pitch in Sunday’s finale, and has had little trouble with the O’s lineup throughout his career.
Tribe Looks to Continue Offensive Attack in Chicago
The Indians hope to strengthen their stranglehold on the soft American League Central when they face off with the struggling White Sox this weekend. Everyone sees what Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor can do on offense, but with Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco set to take the bump on Saturday and Sunday, Cleveland pitching could be a way for DFS players to surge ahead of the pack.
Random Matchups to Keep in Mind
Elsewhere, Matt Chapman of the surging Oakland A’s has a chance to do damage this weekend when they head to Anaheim for a three game set with the Angels. The Halo’s pitching staff has been hampered by injuries and inconsistency all year, so Chapman could provide some great scoring from the third tier.
Pitching wise, Zack Wheeler will set out for his fifth straight victory in Miami on Friday night. The former phenom has really rounded back into fine form this season, but his price tag still remains low on daily fantasy sites. Lance Lynn’s most recent start with the Yankees was a promising one, and with the last place Rangers coming to the Bronx this weekend, he’ll hope to continue the upward trend.
