Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks: Rankings, lineup advice for Sunday, April 30 | Fantasy

Sunday is often the most popular day for daily fantasy baseball contests, but finding a pitcher today won’t be easy given the relative dearth of high-quality options. Expect to see a lot of Dallas Keuchel, Noah Syndergaard, and Chris Archer picks in cash games, but things are wide open in GPPs. 

Some of the “better” pitchers going today haven’t pitched particularly well this year (Aaron Sanchez, Joe Ross), while several other “lesser” pitchers (Miguel Gonzalez, Wade Miley) have been dealing. We’re a little worried about Miley because how well the Yankees hit lefties, but his high K-rate still puts him in play in GPPs. Mike Leake looks like a solid, “safe” play in cash games or GPPs where you just want someone different than the big guns. He looks especially good when you take into account his chances at a win going opposite Bronson Arroyo and the Reds. Jesse Hahn is in a similar position, but he unfortunately faces Keuchel and the Astros. Consider him a nice contrarian play in GPPs.

As far as the boom-or-bust guys go, there are a bunch, starting with Jordan Montgomery. The big lefty has a tough matchup against Baltimore, but the Orioles rank third in strikeout percentage against southpaws. If Montgomery is “on”, he could rack up Ks in a hurry. Mike Foltynewicz (at MIL), Ty Blach (vs. SD), and even Nick Pivetta (at LAD), who’s set to make his major league debut for the Phillies, are in similar positions.
