Celebrate Jackie Robinson Day With Daily Fantasy Baseball!

Full slate of 15 games on schedule for tonight – let’s see if our favorite Daily Fantasy Baseball writers can help us pick some winners.

Some think of today as Tax Day, while others know it as Jackie Robinson Day – a day to celebrate the day he made his major-league debut, breaking the color barrier in professional sports.

(Interesting side note: Go watch Ken Burns’ “Baseball” again and you’d find that there were actually black ballplayers in the majors in the late 1800s. They were eventually banned, and Robinson ended up being the first black player in modern baseball.)

There are three games with more than a 50-percent chance of rain, however, so keep an eye on the TB at BAL game, along wiith CHC at NYY and ATL at PHI.

Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks for Jackie Robinson Day

RotoExperts.com – Dobish’s Daily Bread

It looks like Andrew Brown is about to inherit a job, with a couple of the Mets’ other outfielders going down with injury Monday. He also likes Conor Gillaspie, who is really starting to grow into his full-time third base job with the White Sox.

Jake Ciely likes what Chase Headley’s doing over his past five games – and thinks he has a good sixth game in him tonight!

ESPN.com – Daily Notes

Brian Gramling once again returns to rank ALL 30 PITCHERS tonight! I love this page, and I love the notes Gramling writes at the bottom.

FantasyInsiders.com – Daily Diamond Hitters

Derek Carty comes back for another round of his favorite picks for the day. Stephen Strasburg is the top ace of the day, but he also has Brandon Morrow at Minnesota.

“Sure, there have been some breakouts and surprises like Chris Colabello, Josmil Pinto, and Brian Dozier, but when you consider that Colabello is on the way down (as should have been expected) and that their offense (third in the AL in runs scored thus far) has also largely been driven by overperformances from Jason Kubel and Trevor Plouffe (solid players but not this good), you see that this is really a below-average offense. I don’t foresee Morrow having much trouble with it.” — @DerekCarty

FoxSports.com – Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

Adam Meyer really likes the Angels today against the A’s, since four starters are hitting over .400 against Dan Straily.

Draft Kings Deposit Bonus-35x22-2Richard Valero is back on it with his picks – including Edwin Encarnacion against the Twins’ Phil Hughes tonight.

“The bat for EE hasn’t been great this year but he does have 5 hits in his last 3 games as well as a very favorable matchup today. Also right handed hitters are hitting .412 against Hughes this season. Get him in the lineup for sure today.” — Valero

Zach Trexler picks his favorite players/prices on Draft Kings, including a catcher, second baseman and three outfielders (Spoiler alert: Shin-Soo Choo vs. Seattle)!

So here’s the thing – I had a mid-afternoon mild emergency that involved dog poop for a dog I was dogsitting. Soooo today’s picks aren’t as in-depth as I had hoped they would be.
