In this article I will write up the pitchers I am considering for GPPs. I typically only play one main line-up and enter it into the amount of contests I want to play for the night, needless to say my player pool is very narrow.
To be clear I typically don’t make my final choice until moments before the games start. This is because I am always checking the WiseTake Pitching model to see what opposing line-up numbers look like. I do however have a short list of pitchers that I am interested in for the day and will be sharing that with you.
GPP Pitching Prospectus by CK013
Slate Notes: Kluber is on a tier of his own and will be the chalk after a 72 FanDuel point game in his last outing. His price is super restrictive so while in cash he’s my guy, in GPPs I am going try to go elsewhere. Obviously Kluber is a great pitcher in a good spot.
Dinelson Lamet – I know the Pirates don’t provide too much K-upside but over the last seven days they are actually 10th in the league with a 23% K-Rate. Give his price I think he may worth a shot in GPPs, we know Lamet carries the K potential himself.
Eduardo Rodriguez – Obviously a GPP only play but Rodriguez has solid upside. The Royals have been playing well but most of their success has come against right handed pitching. E-Rod’s biggest weakness is his walk rate but the Royals are 24th in walks over the last seven days and
Mike Leake – Leake is coming off of a great game after having a rough stretch. He draws a match-up against the D-Backs who are 3rd in strikeouts over the last seven days. Leake is very cheap making him worthy on a look. We know the D-Backs offense on the road has been drastically worse than at home.
Tanner Roarke – He is coming off a really good game and the Rockies have been striking out at a high clip lately. I don’t normally roster this guy but its a big park boost and I like targeting the Rockies away from Coors.
