DFS pitchers for May 21
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.
Clay Buchholz: The up-and-down Red Sox righty is our favorite buy-low opportunity, as his 4.93 ERA helps obscure a 2.96 xFIP and 10.6 K/9. He faces the mediocre Rangers lineup in Boston for the reasonable price point of $7,900.
Jesse Chavez: The A’s righty is somehow still flying under the radar despite a 2.63 ERA this season on the heels of last season’s breakout with a 3.45 ERA. Chavez has a solid 8.4 K/9 and passable 2.9 BB/9. We like his matchup with the light-hitting Rays in Tampa Bay for the cheap price of $7,200. Using Chavez helped afford us the space to use stars like Mike Trout, Carlos Gomez and Anthony Rizzo.
