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): Scott Diamond is 49 percent owned and given his match-up against the Mariners, this could be his last appearance in the Grind for the season.
Pitcher (bum): None of the pitchers today are terrible, but the new-look Dodgers could put together some runs against Tyler Chatwood. Especially since the Rockies are home.
Ricky Romero against the Yankees is a recipe for runs too.
Hitter (power): Andruw Jones appears to be the top power option for today. Domonic Brown also has a decent match-up but his swing isn’t showing much room for power production and he has a bum wheel, so he doesn’t fit in the speed category either.
Matt Harvey‘s not nearly as good as his early numbers might indicate and he’s already 39 percent owned. His match-up against the Phillies is definitely start-worthy.
I want to be able to recommend Alex Cobb, but he’s facing the Rangers and that just isn’t a good gamble. He’s been hot and isn’t walking anyone lately.
Speaking of Robertson, he’s now a father. He opted not to take the short paternity leave that players are entitled to.
