The 2016 MLB season is underway and Walterfootball.com has decided to supply daily fantasy advice. This feature will also provide a daily "Pete Rose" baseball selection.
For those who aren't familiar with daily fantasy leagues, they are really fun and only take a few minutes to fill out. WalterFootball.com has partnered with FanDuel, and you can sign up here. Also, please note the players below may not be in the lineup as managers change things daily. For the daily lineups as soon as they are released, I visit Baseballpress.com.
These are all projected starters, for view of the complete lineup the day of the game, I use Baseballpress.com.
N.B. If there are fewer than eight games after 7:00 p.m. on a given night, there will be no article as there is not enough games to have variance in FanDuel.

2014: 42-39 +10.1 units

The new system at FanDuel rewards power hitting and getting on base, and really doesn't care any longer about how many outs one makes. This actually makes is a bit easier on the calculations. For a full breakdown, check below.

Chicago AL +150 at Cleveland
First off, sorry for the delay in articles the past week. Been a little rough for me in real life things. I don’t get paid for these articles, so luckily I’m not obligated to write them. The White Sox have the better pitcher going tonight so despite the team’s struggles, it is hard to pass up this big of a line
Bet 0.4 units on Chicago AL to win 0.6 units
Miami +100 vs San Francisco
The Marlins have hit Matt Moore pretty consistently through the years, while Tom Koehler has been really good the last two months. Small wager on the home team here.
Bet 0.5 units on Miami to win 0.5 units-Correct!

What are the Numbers About Again?
Our system and suggestions are based on a numerical system. The players are listed in order of expected number of points I project for this player. This all comes from a weighted system that includes the following information:
-- Batter vs pitcher numbers -- Results from the last seven games for each batter -- Batter season history vs left-handed or right-handed pitcher -- Batter season history home or away
I will do my best to rank each position from top to bottom to show my top choice of the night. It will not always be the top projected amount. Also, any player with stars after his name is someone you need to check the lineups for to make sure they are in because they are platoon players.
Full slate of games tonight. Likely rain only in Texas, of all places. Pretty good amount of options at each position so take any of our suggestions as you see fit.

Based on my mock draft which is accurate there isnt gonna be many options besides guards unless you reach a little. Still a month to go so some things could change. Lauri Markannen would be my 2nd choice. But still Rubio is NOT the furture PG for Twolves. Hes trade bait. And Tyus Jones is nothing more than a back up PG. IF THAT. So if they want to IMPROVE they would grab the 19 yr old PG with ton of potential who was once considered best PG in class. Smith-Lavine-Wiggins-Dieng-Towns.
