Daily Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Pitchers for Friday, April 7

Who's ready for the first full schedule of the MLB season? Our Friday pitcher rankings are here to help you put together the best daily fantasy baseball lineups.

Barring weather issues, we're finally going to get our first full day of baseball this season, but as is always the case this time of year, there are a handful of day games to add some variation to the slate. That just means more opportunitiesto put together lineups for daily fantasy baseball contests, with your pitcher being the key to your entire strategy.

As we've said before, price is always a big factor when picking any DFS player, but sometimes simply having the "best" pitcher can be worth it, especially if it's a night when you can find a bunch of good value hitters. Our rankings are designed to simply rank the starters based on talent level, upside, and matchup. How they work into your budget on FanDuel, DraftKings, Yahoo or whatever site you play on is up to you.

There's no doubt who the best pitcher is today. Max Scherzer is clearly No. 1, but he'll be starting in one of the four day games. Four of our top five SPs areactually be day-game hurlers, making the pickings slim for main-slate contests. When Francisco Liriano is the top pitcher from the evening games, you know it could be a long night. Chances are we'll see some good performances, but it's tough to say who they come from this early in the season.
