Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Rankings, lineup advice for Saturday, July 29 | Fantasy

Saturday’s slate of MLB games begins with four in the afternoon and 11 games in the evening beginning at 6:05 p.m. ET. In the afternoon, Jacob deGrom stands tall as the top pitcher pick for daily fantasy baseball contests. A good matchup for Rich Hill, but then it’s a major dropoff afterwards. The evening slate is very similar with a top-heavy choices and a steep gap between other options. 

After Hill, it starts to get sketchy with possible picks. Kyle Freeland has been pitching well, but he is much better at Coors (3.21) than on the road (4.12) and faces the Nationals. Adam Conley has returned from the minors in dominant fashion, but he isn’t dependable. Mike Leake had his best outing after struggling badly in his three outings before that, and Dinelson Lamet and Ty Blach have been up and down all season.

In boom-or-bust options, Kevin Gausman has been pitching better in the past couple starts (2-0, 16 Ks in 12 innings), and that includes a six-inning, one-run, eight-strikeout performance against the team he faces today, the Rangers.  Jerad Eickhoff hasn’t been sharp this year, but he’s been sharp against the Braves, sporting a career 2.00 ERA in eight career starts. His last three outings have been solid, too (2-0, 22 strikeouts in 15 innings).
