Daily Fantasy Baseball Playbook: Strategy advice, lineup picks, more

Sporting News

There are ninegames on Tuesday's MLB schedule, including the Tigers-White Sox makeup game, which is the only afternoon contest. Even thoughthat game is included in the “All Day” slate for FanDuel and Yahoo, it shouldn't factor too much into your daily fantasy baseball strategy for today. Making DFS lineup picks before most actual lineups are released is always risky.

Weather wise, things look pretty safe today. A 50-percent chance of rain in St. Louis could cause issues with the Cubs-Cardinals tilt (Arrieta-Wainwright), but early reports indicate they will most likely get that game in.

If the roof is open in Houston, wind couldbe a factor, as there aregusts expected between 12-15 MPH to straightaway center field
