Daily Matchups for 4/18/2017

Pitchers To Target:


Michael Fulmer- Love this match-up for Fulmer tonight. He gets a terrific game against the Rays that he has had some success against in the past. Tonight is kind of like Sunday’s slate, not many stud pitchers going and the terrible match-ups will be exploited by our batting picks.

Career vs Current Rays Roster

AVG: 0.138 [4 for 29], BABIP: 0.176, K%: 37.9, BB%: 0.0
FIP: 2.09 Strikeout: 11 Groundout: 8 Flyout: 5Single: 2 Home Run: 1 Double: 1 Pop Out: 1

Yuuuuuuuuuu Darvish- Love this match-up against the A’s tonight. Both of these teams being in the same division see each other a ton which gives Darvish’s numbers more exciting as he’s held them to a .200 BA in 110 ABs. He’s coming off of a 10 K outing against the Angels and could see something along those lines in tonight’s match-up.

Career vs Current Athletics Roster

AVG: 0.200 [22 for 110], BABIP: 0.284, K%: 28.6, BB%: 10.3
FIP: 2.51 Strikeout: 36 Flyout: 23 Single: 17Groundout: 16 Walk: 13 Lineout: 7 Double: 4Pop Out: 3 Hit By Pitch: 2 Home Run: 1 Sac Fly:1 Grounded Into DP: 1 Field Error: 1 Double Play: 1

Matt Cain- 100% GPP only play here. I can’t even believe I’m suggesting him. Cain is in a match-up tonight against a reeling Royal’s team that just can’t string much together to start the 2017 campaign. Cain has actually had tremendous success against the current roster and could make for a great SP2. He’s had mixed results in his two starts and hasn’t gone over 5 innings yet so that could deter people from choosing him.

Career vs Current Royals Roster

AVG: 0.081 [3 for 37], BABIP: 0.087, K%: 41.5, BB%: 0.0
FIP: 1.31 Strikeout: 17 Groundout: 6 Flyout: 6Sac Bunt: 4 Pop Out: 3 Single: 2 Home Run: 1Bunt Groundout: 1 Lineout: 1

Other  Pitchers: Luis SeverinoZack Wheeler, Wei-Yin Chen

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.

As discussed in previous Youtube videos, after 7 years, we've decided to take some time off. My plan is to take a couple of months off and transition to making FantasyTeamAdvisors a Season-Long and DFS Fantasy Football website. Hopefully, you understand and we'll be back better than ever!
