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.
Pitcher (to start): It’s not the best collection of arms today. Matt Harvey is interesting in that he’s a prospect and has been rather successful in his first few big league starts. That said, he’s not a dominate pitcher so he’s going to run into some bumps. The Braves might be one of those bumps.
Mark Rogers is less interesting, but perhaps he shouldn’t be. He’s only one-percent owned and he’s MUCH better than that. He should be owned in all NL-only leagues at the very least and those have to make up more than one percent of leagues…
Brandon McCarthy would be a nice streamer choice today if he wasn’t 49-percent owned. He’s coming off the disabled list.
Pitcher (bum): The Red Sox face lefty Chris Seddon. Not much to say on that; they should score runs in bunches.
Kris Medlen‘s finally stretched out enough to be useful, too.
The options are almost too plentiful to count. There are regulars like Jones and Jonny Gomes, fresh names like Travis Snider, Starling Marte, Delmon Young, and Domonic Brown, and even a great speed option in Carlos Gomez.
Nothing to report.
