One Day Fantasy Baseball One Day Fantasy Baseball

Each day of the MLB season will bring us some major price differences among starting pitchers on all sites. These price discrepancies and the site's roster differences can alter the way we use pitchers on each site, as well as how the field of opponents will use them. Listed below are five of today's top pitchers, each with their salary listed as well as the cafe value that takes into account both the total salary cap on the site and points-per-dollar. We've also provided some betting info for you reference. The higher the cafe value, the better the points-per-dollar play is.

Clayton Kershaw

The big talking point here are the price tags. Clayton Kershaw is an absurd $13,800 on DraftKings, but with the right SP2, you can still work a team around him. On FanDuel and Yahoo, you can do the same. FanDuel being the easier priced site. Colorado is away from Coors, where there bats have slowly started to get going, but not enough to worry anyone against Kershaw. The big lefty allowed some home runs the last time these two faced, but it was in the belly of the beast. Colorado's ISO drops significantly on the road, and the strikeout rate is already among the tops in the league. Kershaw is a massive home favorite at -260, and is the only pitcher in baseball deserving of these high price tags. Going back to last year he has above a 30% strikeout rate and below a 2% walk rate. Kershaw is pitching like your 12-year-old brother playing MLB The Show on beginner. Fire away in all formats, but key in on a few cheap arms below that I talk about pairing for DraftKings and Yahoo.
