Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Advice, notes for Monday, April 17

Sporting News

We're a couple weeks into the 2017 MLB season, which means we can finally start analyzing what’s “real”. Our daily fantasy baseball pick pool is smaller on Monday, thanks in part to the early Patriots Day start with the Rays-Red Sox at Fenway.

We won’t talk about any players from that game in today's Playbook; instead, we'llfocus on the main slate, which includes nine games, including three late-night games.
