DFS pitchers for May 7
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.
Anthony DeSclafani: The Reds righty is off to a great start at 2-2 with a 2.03 ERA yet still costs just $6,800 at the Pirates, whose stud Andrew McCutchen is struggling badly. Using DeSclafani allowed us to use studs like Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock at home against road-struggler Odrisamer Despaigne.
Chris Archer: The Rays flame-thrower is our ace pick of the day, costing $9,400 at home against the light-hitting Rangers. Archer takes a 3-3 record with a 1.64 ERA into the matchup against Nick Martinez, who is due for a bad start since he’s not gonna maintain a 0.84 ERA all year.
We also like Carlos Frias as a bargain as the Dodgers fire-baller is the cheapest pitcher of the day at $4,700 at Milwaukee. We’re also using Edinson Volquez for $6,700 against the Indians and winless Corey Kluber.
