The Daily Degenerate Fantasy Baseball Picks 4/22


Did you play the Dirty Turban roster yesterday? Hope so as we cashed in all the 50/50’s we entered with 125.10 points. We expected a bigger return, but King Felix turned jester on us and the reverse-lock went into effect. Felix ended up with just 14.95 FPTS. That hurt. However, our picks of Julian Teheran, Nick Swisher, Scooter Gennent and Nolan Arenado were solid and Charlie Blackmon went off in Colorado with two homers and 30 FPTS. If you played a Rockies stack you were on a Rocky Mountain high. 


Tonight we have 15 games on the slate. Weather may be a concern in New York and Boston so we may have to stay clear of Yankees – Red Sox and Cards – Mets. With concerns of rain (not to mention the prices) we’re going to rule out Tanaka and Wainwright and turn our greedy eyes towards Coors Field once again. 

Here’s the Dirty Turban roster we’re rolling with today 4/22. 

All values are based on DraftKings pricing.

SP 1 – David Price, $10,200: Since we faded Tanaka and Wainwright let’s see if the Price is right against the Twins in Tampa tonight. Price struggled in his last start, but look for a rebound tonight as the Twinkies are fourth in the AL in K’s.  

SP 2 – Hyun-Jin Ryu, $9,400: Ryu is averaging nearly 30 FPTS in his last two starts, is pitching at home and the Phillies are struggling. 

C – Buster Posey, $5,100: Here comes our Giants stack tonight. Rockies starter Franklin Morales should not be a starter. The Giants will be glad he still is. 

1B – James Loney, $3,600: Kind of a punt play here, but Loney’s been on a tear with 10 hits in his last six games. 

2B – Scooter Gennent, $2,600: Gennent is our go-to infielder on the cheap. We’ve been winning with him and let’s ride the Scooter again. 

3B – Pablo Sandoval, $3,800: Much like Miguel Cabrera’s fantasy slump can’t last forever neither can Pablo’s. Bold prediction: Big Panda hits two bombs tonight. 

SS – Clint Barnes, $2,200: Total punt here. **UPDATE** Barnes is not in tonight’s lineup. We’ll look to go Jonathan Herrera, Willie Bloomquist or Dean Anna. Let’s hope one of them is playing tonight. 

OF 1 – Hunter Pence, $4,500: Expecting big things from the Giants tonight and Pence should be right in the middle of it. Our whipping boy Franklin Morales gives up 1.23 HR/9 and has a 6.59 FIP against right-handers. That explains the rest of our outfield. 

OF 2 – Mike Morse, $4,000: Mike Morse big. Mike Morse hit ball. He should run into one tonight. 

OF 3 – Angel Pagan, $4,500: Pagan should be in the Giants leadoff spot and should pile up some points in front of Pence, Posey and the Panda. 

Good luck and remember to always check daily lineups and weather conditions.
