With the regular season under way, many managers are looking to identify players and strategies geared to enhance their performance in daily fantasy leagues.
The game of baseball is different than any other format when approaching from a daily fantasy perspective. The season is a marathon and thus it is best to take advantage of teams with potentially advantageous match-ups.
Pitching helps pave that way and without question the New York Mets own the best starting rotation in the MLB.
The name of the game for the daily fantasy sport of baseball is to be aware of team performance or attain insights in to particular clubs that can potentially bring that to the table. The rotation of the Mets has propelled New York to remain a contender for the East and the National League pennant. Here are some players worth watching:
Nicknamed “Thor”, Syndergaard made a splash and emerged as the Ace for a dynamic New York Mets rotation. “Thor” has a hammer to match his cannon, who go yard when he has the plate taking his hacks.
When “Thor” is on he can deliver exceptional numbers and greatly aid managers in the strikeout department.
“The Matz” anchors the Mets’ rotation as a lefty who has played a pivotal role after the Mets dealt Jonathon Niese to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Matz is economical and can go deep in to games. He is coming in off a visit on the 15-Day DL and likely bares a lower price tag than you can expect to see accompany him.
Take advantage while you can. Like his partner Noah Syndergaard, “The Matz” can get wood as well, he was the first MLB rookie pitcher to compile four RBIs.
DeGrom has the potential to be an ace on virtually any other team in the MLB. DeGrom has been a perennial Cy Young contender and enters now off what was classed as a season of set-backs in 2016.
DeGrom was shelfed with an injury that led to the Mets struggling to earn a play-in berth in to the Wild Card game. Overall, DeGrom is 30-22 with a career 2.74 ERA, 492 stikeouts and a sparkling 1.10 WHIP. This is a player worth keeping an eye on given the fact he has a low floor and high ceiling when in peak condition.
