Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice and DFS Strategy - July 28
FEB 03, 2015 4:42p ET
Editor’s note: Starting the second week of the season, our newest member of the FOX Sports team, D.J. Foster, will join Adam Meyer in providing DFS baseball lineup advice. Foster will post to this page on Sundays/Mondays/Wednesdays and Meyer will post on Tuesdays/Fridays/Saturdays.
As for the typically lighter Thursday schedule, be sure to check out John Halpin's picks in his Quick Hits Blog
Yesterday’s lineup recap:
- Kevin Gausman was a phenomenal suggestion by D.J. Foster: 7.2 IP, 0 ER, and 5 K as the deal-o-day.
- Paul Goldschmidt was the must-start. He hit a home run in his first at-bat and walked three times after that AB.
Must-Start of the Day – Carlos Gonzalez, COL
He is on one of the most ridiculous heaters of all-time. Gonzalez is 12-21 (.571) with seven home runs and 15 RBI in the past week. CarGo’s price tag isn’t bad, either.
