The Daily Grind provides daily match-up advice based on my every-morning waiver wire search. I welcome advice to help make this column more effective. Ownership rates are from Yahoo!
The Fanduel picks are a mixture of Daily League specific advice and information for the more typical fantasy owner.
Those in leagues with same-day moves should refer back to yesterday’s table.
The Fanduel Daily League Players of the Day are:
Pitcher (to start): There are five worth considering today. My top pick is Kris Medlen against the Padres. My second pick is Marco Estrada. Visit yesterday for the other three picks.
Pitcher (bum): I'm going to do something I never thought I'd do and recommend the Brewers against Cliff Lee. He's been home run prone this season and the Brewers have a lineup that could exploit that. Alex White and Francisco Liriano could have rough outings too.
Hitter (power): Andruw Jones makes his regular appearance and let's give a hand to Chris Carter, who should appear more regularly than he does.
Hitter (speed): Carlos Gomez has the match-up I'm excited about against Lee. Rajai Davis has the platoon advantage against Liriano and Eric Young has finally earned the chance to start for the Rockies.
Ross Detwiler has a solid match-up against the Mets. Wade LeBlanc might be able to survive the Rockies. My favorite pick of the day is Zach McAllister against the A's.
Plenty of names to choose from for tomorrow. Outside the usual and common options, you could try Chris Johnson, Eric Thames, Carlos Lee, Justin Ruggiano and Brandon Belt.
In the realm of completely expected developments, Jim Henderson blew the save yesterday. Just stay clear of the Brewers bullpen unless you are very confident about your ratios.
