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: Mad Max is a beast and that’s obvious but after him it’s pretty dicey. I expect Santana to be a popular play coming off of a complete game against a strikeout heavy Brewers team but he’s the guy I’m fading after he threw 110+ pitches in his last start.
Brent Suter – Suter has shown some K-upside in the little we have seen him and the Twins have K’d in bunches. Sano has missed a few games since being hit with a pitch and he’s out again today. If those two are out this could be a great spot for this kid.
Trevor Williams – He’s been around yet many people probably haven’t heard of him. He doesn’t have much K-upside normally but we saw him shut down the Rays with 7 Ks across 7 innings earlier this season. This guy won’t make write-ups very often but on a short slate with horrible pitching we have to consider him in a big park against a heavily right-handed Tigers team.
Tim Adleman – He’s cheap on DraftKings and gets a decent match-up against the Padres. He gives up a ton of homers but the Padres are one of the worst offenses in baseball. Still, he’s got a k/9 above 9 against righties and the Padres only have 2 lefties in their line-up.
