DFS pitchers for April 17

Updated: April 17, 2015

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.

Corey Kluber: What more is there to say than the 2014 AL Cy Young winner against maybe the worst pitcher in baseball in Mike Pelfrey for the relative bargain price of $9,800.

Max Scherzer: Mad Max is looking for his first win and will get it against the Phillies’ pathetic lineup and their weak starting pitcher, Sean O’Sullivan, for $11,700.

We certainly love Clayton Kershaw going against the Rockies in L.A. looking for his first win and is facing one of the worst starting pitchers in Kyle Kendrick, but $12,600 price is just a bit too steep when there’s other such great matchups. If you want to go off the beaten path and go for a jackpot, we like Sonny Gray ($8,300) at Kansas City against Jeremy Guthrie and Jered Weaver ($7,500) at Houston vs. Roberto Hernandez. If you want to dip way down, Ubaldo Jimenez ($6,000) is an all-or-nothing play at Boston and Joe Kelly.

We’re stacking our lineups with guys going against Mike Pelfrey (Cleveland’s Carlos Santana, Lonnie Chisenhall, Roberto Perez, Jerry Sands and Brandon Moss), Guthrie (Oakland’s Marcus Semien and Mark Canha) or Hernandez (the Angels’ Kole Calhoun).
