MLB DFS Tournament Strategy: Monday, April 15th

MLB DFS tournament play is unlike that of any other sport. Predicting outcomes with precision is difficult, and player variance is near its peak. There are special considerations when constructing lineups in order for you to find success in the long term. Each weekday, our DFS analysts will examine a specific tournament format and help you understand the application of strategy, via concepts such as pitcher pairings, roster construction, stacking, leverage, ownership, variance, and more.

Pitching Texture

Monday’s slate is an intriguing one in regards to high-priced pitching options as there are a handful of reasonable options to choose from. My SP1 for the night is Trevor Bauer, who is currently projected to be the highest owned pitcher of the slate (40% DK, 20% DK). Yes, the Mariners offense has been dominant to start the season but this still sets up as a favorable spot for Bauer at the pitcher-friendly T-Mobile Park. While potent, the Mariners lineup does have a handful of strikeouts in it, which is good news for Bauer who has posted a strikeout rate north of 30% to start the season.
