Today’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Best starting pitchers, streamers for Thursday, June 20

first_imgWith 12 games on Thursday’s MLB schedule — only two of which take place in the afternoon — it’s a relatively big day on daily fantasy baseball slates. However, our SP rankings fall off in a hurry, revealing only a handful of desirable options, most of which are high priced. Picking the right sleepers for your DraftKings and FanDuel contests will require taking some risks.Two boom-or-bust candidates are Julio Urias (@ Giants) and Framber Valdez (@ Yankees). Both have great stuff, but Urias isn’t expected to go deep into the game, serving as a glorified opener, while Valdez will face a Yankees lineup that figures to be much tougher than its ranking vs. lefties thanks to the recent “additions” of Giancarlo Stanton and Edwin Encarnacion.

League average for position players is 100, and every point above 100 is a percentage point above league average. For example, a 125 wRC+ means a player created 25% more runs than a league average hitter would have in the same number of plate appearances. Similarly, every point below 100 is a percentage point below league average, so a 80 wRC+ means a player created 20% fewer runs than league average.” For more on the stat, click here.
