Mr Clutch’s MLB DFS Quick Hits 5/16

Pitchers to Target J.C. Ramirez – Ramirez ran into a bump in the road in his last two starts, striking out just six batters in 13 innings while giving up 16 hits and six earned runs. He was exceptional in the previous three starts, striking out 25 batters in 17.2 innings, only giving up three earned […]

Pitchers to Target Clayton Kershaw – Anytime you can get Kershaw under $10,000 (FanDuel) you roster him. It’s a bit risky because he’s pitching in Colorado, but he is good enough to shutdown the Rockies – even in Coors. He got a bit roughed up in his last outing there, but I am hoping that just […]

Pitchers to Target Robbie Ray – If there’s one thing we know about Ray, it’s that he has as much strikeout upside as anyone in the league. He’s a bit more risky at home, but against the Tigers, I’m willing to take the risk. The Tigers strike out almost 24% of the time against left […]

We’ve got 13 games on the main slate with some really good pitching options to target, and some really good pitching options to target batters against.

Pitchers to Target Trevor Cahill – Cahill is an absolute no brainer on DraftKings. His batted ball against profile is exceptional over his last two starts with a 171′ distance and a 68% ground ball rate. Both of those numbers lead all pitchers on this slate. Many people will stay away from him based on […]

Welcome to the Wild Card round. I don’t love these short slates, but I’m too much of a degenerate to not play. I’ll scale back my entries this week, and maybe build a couple teams with some contrarian plays. This week’s write up will be shorter than normal due to a much smaller player pool, but […]

Quarterback Let’s get right into this week’s plays. There is a quarterback play this week that I think is the sharp plays of all sharp plays. He is the only quarterback I am going to write up. There are a few other guys who are in fine spots that I would be chomping at the bit […]
