Small sample sizes can cast a shadow over our fantasy baseball daily top picks.
Two wasted days of Giants right-handed bats later, and it’s official that more than a few folks are starting to get antsy. I’m talking of course about the back-to-back tantalizing lefties on the mound in Coors Field the past two evenings, and if you’re a daily fantasy baseball player you know exactly what I’m talking about. I’ve had exposure to multiple options from those games with my fantasy baseball top daily plays, and I’m simply shrugging it off and moving on.
It can be disheartening at times when the correct plays fail to pan out, but baseball more than any other daily fantasy sport is about perseverance and seeing the bigger picture. You pick on situations that offer favorable conditions, and that’s exactly what we’ll do tonight as we seek to get back on track with our fantasy baseball top daily plays.
Five Guys Fantasy Baseball Top Daily Plays
Robinson Cano $10,650 – Jarred Cosart has been beyond awful to start the season, and his peripherals are beginning to haunt him. The Mariners bats haven’t been lighting it up either, but I think Cano gets ahold of one tonight.
Michael Wacha $16,900 – I’m a believer in the hype. Wacha has performed admirably this season, and tonight’s matchup against the anemic Mets offense provides a perfect opportunity for his skillset to shine.
Junior Lake $7,500 – If there’s one guy I want from the Cubbies against a weak lefty it’s Lake. He carries sufficient power to make Wade Miley pay, and I have no qualms about using him in cash games.
Kyle Lohse $12,800 – Legitimate bargain hurlers are tough to come by, and Lohse has an enticing price tag to boot. The Padres should offer little resistance.
Matt Joyce $8,350 – Joyce is a strict platoon player, routinely sitting against left-handed pitching. The nice thing though is that he’s almost always at the top of the order, further solidifying him as one of the night’s top options.
