Brandon Crawford (SS) Brandon Crawford is 4 for 9 with 1 double, 2 HR, 5 runs, and 2 RBI vs Alex Wood. Crawford is at a very low $2,100. Pick Crawford up.
Besides the hitters I listed above, try and start as many right handed hitting Cubs vs lefty Caleb Smith from the Marlins and as many Brewers vs 24 year old Joey Lucchesi from the Padres. I don’t know much about him but I have to think he will be very nervous in his debut. Kole Calhoun had a big Opening Day but he’s facing lefty Sean Manae so I would stay away.

3 players that are not playing tomorrow that had huge Opening days are Matt Davidson (3B- White Sox), Tim Anderson (SS- White Sox), and Jose Martinez (1B/OF St. Louis) so we should keep an eye on them this week. Jose Martinez is probably the best investment long term and Davidson and Anderson are short term pickups particularly against a suspect KC Royals pitching staff.
Please keep in mind the idea of Fan Duel and Draft Kings tournaments is to find the cheapest players that will provide you the most value that day because you are given a $35,000 salary maximum to start 1 starting pitcher and 8 hitters. In the 1st week, you really don’t have current year stats to go by, so career stats vs opposing starting pitchers is probably the best way to find players. Once the season is underway, then you should still use these career stats but also research how that player has been hitting or pitching in their most recent games. Baseball is a marathon season and managing trends, streaks, and slumps correctly is the KEY to maximizing both your daily fantasy league and Fan Duel or Draft Kings lineups.
