GPP Pitching Prospectus w/ @CK_013 – 7.31.17


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: There are eight games and the pitching isn’t great as far as selection, I expect Morton to grab a decent amount of ownership considering his price, match-up and recent performance. 

Luis Severino – Severino isn’t sneaky especially since the Tigers are now without JD Martinez and Alex Avila, two of their better bats. Surprisingly Detroit has hit a little better of late and over the last seven days have limited their strikeouts to 18%. Severino’s ownership will be right up there with Morton’s but still it will be tough to fade him totally.

Danny Duffy – Mark Trumbo is out of the line-up and all of a sudden Duffy seems a little more attractive. Duffy hasn’t shown us much upside this year but the O’s bottom of the order is pretty bare. There is some reverse line-movement against the Royals here but the under is slightly trending as well.

Marco Estrada – Estrada has been absolutely terrible lately but at this price and in this match-up we have to consider him. Before leaving with injury yesterday Josh Tomlin was mowing them down with Ks. I would imagine his ownership is pretty significant on DK at his price but he is practically a punt price and we know he has upside. The White Sox have a 29.5% strikeout rate as a team over their last seven days.
