In this cheat sheet, you will find overall ratings for the day's FanDuel's baseball slate, generated by statistical calculations that considers factors such as opposing hitters and pitchers, ballparks, quality of bullpens, weather, and more. These ratings are meant to reflect value, not raw production.
If David Peralta is labeled a "Great" play while Mookie Betts grades as "Average," it doesn't mean Peralta is an overall better player than Betts -- it means given today's price and matchup, selecting Peralta maximizes the total points per dollar generated by your DFS lineup. Betts may be overpriced and a waste of capital in this particular matchup.
Note: Players with a salary of less than $3,000 and a rating of "poor" are not listed below as they can be safely ignored on today's slate. All ratings assume the player is in the starting lineup.
