If you watched baseball yesterday, you probably have a pretty good feel for who the best performers were. If you were sweating your lineups on DraftKings, you probably have a pretty good feel for who the best performers were. Check out the daily perfect lineup below!
MLB PERFECT LINEUP
-Chris Rusin was a shocking play in the Perfect Lineup. With only 5 games taking place last night,even being owned at 2.2% was low. He rewarded one in every 50 DK lineups handsomely with his 26 fantasy point performance.
-Jordan Zimmermann was the opposite of Rusin – he was the highest owned pitcher last night but still came through as he was part of the perfect lineup.
-A trio of Royals were in the Perfect Lineup as Lorenzo Cain, Kendrys Morales and Ben Zobrist all had big nights.
-Carlos Gonzalez was in the Perfect Lineup for the 2nd consecutive today and now has 4 HRs over the last two games.
TOP 20 FANTASY POINT SCORERS
-The Rockies were the highest scoring team on average last night. In Coors against a sub-parstarter in Ryan Vogelsong they managed to average 12.96 fantasy points per player.
-The Nationals and their offensive explosion were close behind Colorado. Nats players averaged 12.76 fantasy points per player on Thursday night.
-The worst team last night was the Braves, who seem to find themselves as the lowest scoringfantasy team pretty often lately. That was the case on Tuesday against Miami and happened again on Thursday as they averaged just 0.30 fantasy points per player.
-Rockies and Royals players accounted for 4 of the top 5 highest scoring players on Thursday night.
TOP 20 HIGHEST OWNED PLAYERS
-The relationship between ownership for teams and their output was fairly linear on Thursday night. The Rockies averaged the most fantasy points and were the highest owned team. The Nationals were the 2nd highest scoring and were the 2nd highest owned team. The Royals were the 4th highest scoring team and were the 3rd highest owned.
-The one outlier was the Padres. They were the 2nd lowest owned team of the night and hit Mat Latos around quite a bit, leading to them finishing the evening as the 3rd highest scoring team on average.
-The top two highest owned players last night were both in the MLB Perfect Lineup.
TOP 20 VALUE PLAYS
1 – Value Plays defined by top 20 players in terms of $/Pt (salary divided by total fantasy points).
-Yangervis Solarte was a deep sleeper on Thursday night. At just 2.5% owned he put together a 33 fantasy point game and finished the night as the best sleeper at $87 DK dollars spent per fantasy point scored.
-Hernan Perez was another deep sleeper who was even lower owned than Solarte and had a big night off of Pirates lefty Francisco Liriano.
-The Rockies, despite their high price tag (they were the 4th highest priced team on average last night) managed to be the best team for value.
-The Braves and their measly 0.30 fantasy points per player were the worst value team of the night, averaging $9627 $/Pt.
