FanDuel: You Only Need To Be Lucky Once

Posted 9 hrs ago. via razzball.com

Let me start this off by making one thing abundantly clear - Do Not Play Carlos Martinez in Cash. But, winning GPPs often requires the cliched attitude of "go big or go home". Carlos Martinez offers you a pitcher with a 25.8% K-rate for $7400. Go take a look at all the pitchers in baseball with a 25% K-rate or higher. The cheapest they run you is $9000 (which is around what Carlos normally costs). In addition to being cheap, the fact that he is pitching at Coors Field will keep his ownership quite low. Peak Carlos Martinez involves a lot of ground balls (career 54.3%) and a lot of strikeouts, and you know what doesnt care about Coors park factors? Ground balls and strikeouts. So you have a pitcher with massive strikeout upside, at a very low price, and who will be very underowned. While its entirely possible he walks 6 Rockies and gives up 6 runs in 4 innings, its also entirely possible that he gets you 10 Ks in 7IP and puts up just as big of a number as deGrom or Scherzer, and costs $3500 less. Is it the most likely outcome? No. But its an entirely plausible outcome, and if luck shines on you today, youre looking at a massive edge in GPPs.On to the picks once luck shines on me...New to FanDuel?
