Giants starter Jeff Samardzija is a shark lurking in the waters on Tuesday, ready to put up a big performance for those who draft him. He is only projected as the seventh-best starter, but I think Shark is your best option outside of the three aces pitching today. He went five scoreless against a tough Angels lineup in his first time out, and that was when he was restricted to just 80 pitches. With a longer leash, Samardzija should have an even better start against the Nats. A popular sleeper candidate before his injury, Samardzija posted a 24.2% K-rate with just a 3.8% walk-rate in 2017, putting up a 3.63 Deserved Run Average. He’s not a top-tier ace, but he’s still a very useful fantasy starter, and people will start realizing that soon enough.

One of the best things on Draft.com is the ability to easily play the early evening games that are popping up more and more. Other sites leave them off their main slates, and that makes them the stray cats of the DFS world. Which is a shame, because there’s some good baseball being played between 6:00 and 7:00 Eastern Standard Time. So open up your homes/lineups to a cat like Mitch Haniger.

Anyone? Buehler? Walker Buehler, one of the LA Dodgers’ best pitching prospects, is getting the call-up to face the Miami Marlins. He had a rough go-around last year in relief appearances in his brief taste of big league ball, but nothing a match-up versus one of the worst-hitting teams can’t fix. He has been sharp in his three AAA starts and has a solid chance to record a win, as the Dodgers are huge favorites. Marlins are carrying a .588 OPS against RHP, and have only managed to hit .218 during that time. Strikeout potential is also there, as the Marlins ranked in the top 10 in Ks. If you are willing to risk, you can load up on some big bats and score some value with Buehler. Let’s take a look at the rest of the picks….

They call Draft fantasy for the people, and why not? It’s easy as Sunday morning. Sign up at Draft.com, do a quick snake draft of 3, 4, 6 or 10 players, and get a piece of the payouts.  Here at Razzball we recommend using Value-Based Drafting (VBD) to make the most of your roster.  Using Rudy’s tools, you can easily sort values and take the projected points for the final player drafted at each position (P, IF, OF) and subtracting from all the players at that position, then re-ranking based on VBD.  In other words: Razzball will give you the inside knowledge you need to dominate your DFS opponents.

You may have experienced a little something called postponed Major League games.  And when you’re working with a small roster and every decision is vital,  the weather can be a death knell for your fantasy hopes and dreams. With that in mind, welcome to park known as Chase Field and climb on the thrill ride known as Patrick Corbin. He is tearing up the league in the early going, averaging close to 7 innings per start with 12 K/9 and a mind blowing .695 WHIP.  He is the undisputed king of starting pitchers right now and he gets the lowly Padres at his climate-controlled home in Arizona.  Corey Kluber is a great choice as well, but he’s playing in the bandbox of Baltimore.  Patrick Corbin is the 4th-ranked pitcher today on Draft, so target him in the first round or with the first pick in the second.

In his start against the Padres, Kenta Maeda will run the game and have the whole world talking. King Kenta is the Stream-0-nator’s top starting pitching pick on Wednesday against the feeble Padres lineup in arguably the best pitcher’s park in baseball, Petco Park. The Padres have the second highest K-rate against righties this year at 27.6%, giving Maeda a very high ceiling for this start. Maeda has 14 strikeouts through 8 2/3 innings with a clean 2.08 ERA this season – no bones to pick here, Maeda is a top SP option tonight.

Tonight is my favorite kind of night on Draft.com. The small rosters usually mean you’re choosing between great hitter A and great hitter B. Some tough match-ups equals slimmer than usual pickin’s for this slate. That’s going to help you gain an edge by doing your homework and finding advantageous spots for players like Justin Bour and Mike Foltynewicz. So sharpen up your pencil, and maybe stop doodling inappropriately.

Blake Snell has a real opportunity tonight to body-slam the battered Texas Rangers. Missing a couple of key components in the offense, the Rangers have managed a measly .674 OPS as a team. In addition to the injuries, they offer a huge strikeout potential, as they ranked 4th in the entire MLB in Ks. Snell has always been somewhat of an enigma but he has the stuff to dominate a lineup, as he proved his last time out (6IP 1ER 10Ks). Lastly, the game is being played indoors and offers no chance of a PPD, when it seems every game is being postponed these days. Let’s take a look at the rest of the picks…

There are a number of great pitchers today, but no better than Chris Sale.  He’s in top form to start the season and his numbers against the Orioles with Boston are vintage 2000 Pedro Martinez: 3-0, 2.05 ERA, .73 WHIP, 33 strikeouts in 22 Innings.  Many will be on the Ohtani train, and why not?  Close to perfect games pitching, hitting homers off Kluber, he’s incredible.  You’ve got Kershaw in a home start where he’s nails on any given day.  You won’t be hurt with Syndergaard either, Thor is mighty, but he’s slightly more risky as he is coming off injury last year.  Despite stiff competition Chris Sale is the number one guy today and will give you an edge.  If you are playing a three person draft you can probably wait to draft Sale with the last pick and still get the best match-up of the day.  In larger drafts you can still grab Sale later than Ohtani and Kershaw potentially.  Here are a few more early, middle, and late picks to use:

Rays starter Yonny Chirinos gets a yawn-worthy matchup on Wednesday as he faces the White Sox. In fact, the Rays-Sox matchup on Tuesday was so ugly that there were reports that only 974 people showed up in attendance. Chirinos, however, certainly isn’t boring – in his last outing, he dominated a strong Red Sox lineup in Fenway Park, allowing just three hits over five innings with no walks or earned runs allowed. The 24-year-old tore up triple-A Durham last year, posting an insane 1.63 Deserved Run Average in 141 innings. Expect a nice outing from Chirinos, and target him late in your drafts. Now let’s check out some more picks…

Tonight is the first night of the season I actually feel really good about playing some DFS. So much so that I don’t feel the need to take up space with witty filler. A multitude of SP1s, like Jacob deGrom (more on him later), will make it easier than usual to get your hitters first on Draft.com. There’s a game in Coors Field and finally some warmer weather. On top of that, we have plenty of mediocre left-handed pitchers to target. Those are the staples of DFS lineup building.
