Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Rankings, lineup advice for Sunday, August 13

Sporting News

The top two starters in our Sunday pitcher rankings -- and, indeed, in all of baseball -- will not be available on main daily fantasy baseball slates. Both Max Scherzer and Chris Sale will take the hill in evening games, but fortunately for those in DFS contests, there are still a couple legit aces and more than a few good values.

Corey Kluber and Dallas Keuchel are the obvious next top choices, but Zack Godley has been pitching at a near-ace level for much of the season, and we know his head-to-head opponent, Jake Arrieta, can post big numbers on any given day.

The rest of our top 15 or so are all in play, so expect to see a lot of different lineups in GPPs.
