GPP Pitching Prospectus w/ @CK_013 – 8.2.17


In this article I will write up the pitchers I am considering for GPPs. I typically only play one to three line-ups and enter them into the amount of contests I want to play for the night, needless to say my player pool is typically pretty narrow.

To be clear I typically don’t make my final choices 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 w/ CK013

Slate Notes: This slate appears to be the opposite of last night’s but last night all three of the top dogs went down. I think we can get creative here with the options available since there isn’t an elite spot. 

Dallas Keuchel – Even though it’s the Rays I still don’t feel all that safe with Keuchel. With that said, his upside here certainly warrants a GPP play. Kuechel has blow-up potential for sure, this is his second start coming back from injury and the Tigers embarrassed him in his last outing. He is home today and gets a match-up against a K heavy team with weak platoon splits against lefties.

Zack Godley – The Cubs had a big day yesterday but Godley is legit. Godley’s ground-ball rate is pretty solid and the wind appears to be blowing in a fair amount which bodes well for the pitchers in general. The Cubs can hit but they can also strikeout, Godley is a solid GPP option.

Luke Weaver – My confidence in Weaver isn’t exactly high “brah” but the Brewers strikeout in bunches and if you really want to get different I think you can take a shot on this guy. He is very cheap and Weaver was racking up Ks against Arizona before eventually falling apart.
