DFS pitchers for May 17
We’re diving into the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) craze and will be bringing you the two pitchers we’re using in Draft Kings with other possibilities as well.
Take note that we’ve been big winners three days in a row – just saying.
Carlos Carrasco: The Indians flame-thrower has a 4.84 ERA that belies how good he’s actually pitched so far this season, as Carrasco has stellar peripherals – 10.7 K/9, 2.0 BB/9 and a 2.50 xFIP. A matchup at Texas against the mediocre Rangers lineup and Nick Martinez for $8,100 is a bargain.
Chris Archer: The Rays ace brings tremendous stats (2.59 ERA, 10.7 K/9, 1.03 WHIP) into this road matchup against the Twins and Kyle Gibson. At just $8,000, it leaves enough money to load up on stacks from Astros vs. Mark Buehrle, Indians vs. Nick Martinez and Mariners vs. Steven Wright.
