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.

Carlos Carrasco: Choosing between all the aces going today boils down to value for us. Carrasco has the fifth-best xFIP this season at 2.65 yet he is the ninth-most expensive option today at $8,800 for his home matchup with the Reds. He is averaging 10.6 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 but has a 4.98 ERA thanks mostly to a .359 BABIP. Saving $3,900 on Carrasco over Scherzer allowed us to slot in some studs like Buster Posey at Coors and Bryce Harper against Sean O’Sullivan.

Michael Pineda: The other best value is the Yankees ace, who has the second-best xFIP at 2.38 yet is the fifth-most expensive option today at $9,400 facing the Rangers in New York.

We have lineups with Scherzer, Felix Hernandez, Chris Archer and Garrett Richards too. There’s a lot of possibilities for huge point totals today, so have fun mixing and matching.
