What’s up #EliteMafia!? Welcome to “The Early Bird”, where we’ll cover the pitchers, stacks, and one-off players you’ll need to dominate today’s early slates on DraftKings and FanDuel!
Today, this article will focus exclusively on the DraftKings/FanDuel 4 GAME “Early Slate” starting at 12:35 PM EST. Since we’re only dealing with 4 games, I think there will be some great ways to leverage off the chalk, so let’s get at it!
Matt Boyd, LHP, Tigers ($10.5K DK / $9.7K FD) Seems like Boyd has faced this Royals lineup a half a dozen times. Well, it’s 4 times, and he’s had mixed results. His 31% K rate is the highest on the slate. His weakness is the longball but on this same slate, he’s the top arm.
Zach Plesac, RHP, Indians ($8.1K DK / $8.6K FD) The rookie gets a chance to face an weaken lineup in the get-away game today. Plesac has an 18% K rate and had over 4Ks his last 3 outings.
Dakota Hudson, RHP, Cardinals ($8.9K DK / $9.2K FD) Hudson has won 4 straight starts with 3 quality starts. He only has a 17% K rate but 2 of his last 3 starts he topped 7Ks. The Giants are the strike kind of team, but Hudson will draw lower ownership and has 40 FDpt -upside.
