MLB DFS 3-29-19 Rundown

on

MLB Opening Day kicked off with a bang…and by bang, I mean a lot of fireworks. There were 48 home runs hit yesterday, including two from Joc Pederson, his teammate Enrique Hernandez and middle infielders Javier Baez, Kolten Wong and Tim Beckham. It was Beckham’s third in three games with the Seattle Mariners.

There are no day games today (boo!).

Below I highlight the players that the Wisdom of the Crowd projections predict will be the best value plays at each position on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
