Today’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Best starting pitchers, streamers for Tuesday, June 4

first_imgWatch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZNMax Fried (@ Pirates) checks in at a nice price, especially on DraftKings, for his favorable matchup against Pittsburgh, and you can expect to see Chase Anderson (vs. Marlins) in a ton of lineups given his price and matchup. Jerad Eickhoff (@ Padres), Eduardo Rodriguez (@ Royals), and Devin Smeltzer (@ Indians) also have good matchups, though Smeltzer is a big risk despite a solid major league debut last week. Reynaldo Lopez (@ Nationals) is a major value sleeper given his matchup, but his ceiling is fairly low — and his floor is extremely low.As far as fades, Shane Bieber (vs. Twins) is in a tough spot, but he has the stuff to pay off in tournaments. The same goes for Hyun-Jin Ryu (@ Diamondbacks). Frankie Montas (@ Angels) is way overpriced on DraftKings given his matchup, and Madison Bumgarner (@ Mets) is only marginally better. After one of the lightest MLB DFS slates of the year yesterday, Tuesday night brings a 15-game schedule. As is often the case on nights like this, our daily fantasy baseball SP rankings are loaded with potential studs and value sleepers (as well as a few matchup-based fades). Finding your starting pitcher on FanDuel won’t be difficult, but figuring out which pair to go with on DraftKings will take a little more work.Perhaps the biggest question tonight is whether to trust Noah Syndergaard (vs. Giants), who’s disappointed for much of the year regardless of how favorable the matchup looks on paper. He has another good one tonight and his price continues to be affordable, but it might be foolish to continue thinking he’s going to get his act together. You can use Masahiro Tanaka (@ Blue Jays) for roughly the same price, and he has just as good of a matchup and been much better lately. There’s some potential for rain for the Red Sox-Royals and Reds-Cardinals, so check the Fantasy Alarm Weather Center closer to lineup lock for the latest weather reports.MORE TUESDAY MLB: DFS picks | Betting picksToday’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Pitcher Rankings: Tuesday, June 4RankPitcherTeamOpponentOpp. wRC+ vs. LHP (rank)Opp. wRC+ vs. RHP (rank)FDDK1Blake [email protected] Tigers89 (T-19th)N/A$11,000$11,0002Hyun-Jin [email protected] D-backs126 (T-3rd)N/A$11,200$11,3003Noah SyndergaardMetsvs. GiantsN/A80 (27th)$9,000$9,6004Chris PaddackPadresvs. PhilliesN/A91 (19th)$9,800$10,0005Stephen StrasburgNationalsvs. White SoxN/A92 (18th)$11,500$11,5006Luis [email protected] CardinalsN/A98 (12th)$9,300$10,1007Kyle HendricksCubsvs. RockiesN/A90 (20th)$10,200$9,5008Masahiro [email protected] Blue JaysN/A75 (28th)$9,200$9,3009Max [email protected] Pirates73 (T-27th)N/A$8,600$7,80010Frankie MontasA’[email protected] AngelsN/A113 (T-5th)$8,700$10,40011Madison BumgarnerGiantsvs. Mets110 (6th)N/A$8,900$9,00012Shane BieberIndiansvs. TwinsN/A121 (2nd)$9,500$9,80013Chase AndersonBrewersvs. MarlinsN/A74 (T-29th)$6,700$7,20014Jerad [email protected] PadresN/A86 (22nd)$7,300$7,10015Griffin CanningAngelsvs. A’sN/A95 (16th)$8,000$8,50016Eduardo RodriguezRed [email protected] Royals73 (T-27th)N/A$8,100$8,00017Pablo [email protected] BrewersN/A103 (11th)$7,200$6,20018Devin [email protected] Indians74 (26th)N/A$8,300$7,50019Wade [email protected] Mariners107 (T-8th)N/A$7,800$8,20020Reynaldo LopezWhite [email protected] NationalsN/A84 (T-23rd)$7,000$5,20021Dylan [email protected] RangersN/A109 (T-8th)$7,500$7,40022Glenn SparkmanRoyalsvs. Red SoxN/A109 (T-8th)$5,500$4,70023Genesis CabreraCardinalsvs. Reds86 (T-22nd)N/A$5,800$6,70024Jeff [email protected] CubsN/A111 (7th)$6,200$6,90025Steven BraultPiratesvs. Braves107 (T-8th)N/A$6,100$6,40026Drew SmylyRangersvs. Orioles89 (T-19th)N/A$6,000$6,10027Clayton RichardBlue Jaysvs. Yankees83 (24th)N/A$5,700$5,80028Taylor ClarkeD-backsvs. DodgersN/A122 (1st)$6,400$6,50029Ryan CarpenterTigersvs. Rays94 (15th)N/A$5,600$5,60030TBDMarinersvs. AstrosN/AN/AN/AN/AwRC+ is defined by Fangraphs as “[measuring] how a player’s wRC compares with league average after controlling for park effects. League average for position players is 100, and every point above 100 is a percentage point above league average. For example, a 125 wRC+ means a player created 25% more runs than a league average hitter would have in the same number of plate appearances. Similarly, every point below 100 is a percentage point below league average, so a 80 wRC+ means a player created 20% fewer runs than league average.” For more on the stat, click here .last_img
