Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings 4/16/16
P- Max Scherzer (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $13,100. Scherzer is a no brainer for Saturday. He has faced the Phillies lineup over 97 at bats and he has held them to a .175 opposing batting average with 28 strikeouts. Scherzer holds a career strikeout rate of 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings, which is what makes him so attractive in daily fantasy. Even if Scherzer doesn’t have a great day, he still has the ability to put up double digit strikeouts, which will help make up any possible damage. The Phillies have struck out the 7th most out of any Major League Baseball team, so this bodes well for Scherzer. Another plus for Scherzer is his success at CitizensBank Ballpark (Philadelphia Phillies home field). In 14 total innings on CitizensBank’s mound, Scherzer has posted a 1.93 ERA and 15 strikeout. He comes at a hefty price, but the point return will outweigh the cost.
P- Jared Weaver (vs. Minnesota Twins): $6,700. Another day and another daily fantasy choice of a pitcher starting against the Minnesota Twins. The Twins offense has been absolutely brutal since the start of the season. They are in dead last for runs scored and they have struck out the 5th most out of any Major League team. Weaver started off the season strong against the Texas Ranger after throwing six innings giving up one earned run, walking one, and striking out four. In 121 career at bats against Weaver, the Twins offense is hitting .256 with only one home run. Bad career numbers mixed with a terrible offensive cold streak is not a good combination for the Twins offense.
