MLB DFS Recap and 3-31-24 Initial Thoughts

Yesterday was a nice bounce back day as 2 of my 3 DFS GPP value pitcher recommendations finished as the top pitchers for the entire slate!

DL Hall was a bust yesterday, but I expect better things from him as the season progresses.

3/31/2024 MLB DFS Slate

Today’s main slte is a tough one for finding solid pitchers under $8,000:

  • In 2023, Jon Gray had a 4.78 ERA at home versus 3.45 on the road. Ouch.
  • Jake Irvin isn’t playable at CIN
  • In contrast, while CIN isn’t ideal for pitchers, Nick Martinez offers strikeout upside against WAS, who has a 4.2 implied run total today. Martinez had a K/9 of 10+ during the second half of 2023.
  • JP France – no thanks.
  • Bailey Falter doesn’t belong in an MLB rotation.
  • Believe it or not, COLIN REA is the pitching value gem of today’s slate. Over his last 13 appearances of 2023, Rea hit double-digit Draftkings points TEN times. Pitching in Citi Field helps, as does the 4.3 implied total for the Mets. For GPPs, pay for the floor, and hope for more. At $6500, you can pair Rea with an expensive arm and some nice bats. It won’t take a ceiling performance for him to hit value. The consistency also makes him a cash game play, but I almost always pay up for pitching in cash games.

MLB Prop of the Day

I love the K over for Nick Martinez today – the prop sits at 4.5 for most books right now.
