DFS pitchers for May 29
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.
Lance McCullers Jr.: The Astros rookie flame-thrower has been electric in two starts, posting a 2.53 ERA backed by excellent rates (9.3 K/9, 3.4 BB/9, 51.7 GB%) and tremendous velocity (fastball averaging 94.0 mph). Priced at just $5,100 for a home start against the struggling White Sox lineup, using McCullers allowed us to pile in superstars like Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Buster Posey and Prince Fielder.
Rubby De La Rosa: The D-backs’ right-handed fire-baller has been our go-to guy lately, averaging 21 fantasy points in his last four starts yet is priced at just $6,400 against the righty-heavy Brewers lineup. Putting De La Rosa with McCullers allowed us to finish out a star-laden lineup with Jason Kipnis, Josh Donaldson, Marcus Semien and Hanley Ramirez.
