Daily Fantasy Sports Picks
ESPN wrote of Toronto Blue Jays 2nd baseman Devon Travis this week:
Travis is a sell-high candidate only if your trade counterpart regards him a true superstar in the making, the kind destined to be a top-10 player at his position going forward.
Let’s look at his daily fantasy forecast for the week.
Monday May 11
Travis is the only hitter with a solid record against Jimenez who is currently playing well. Michael Saunders has performed well against Jimenez but has played poorly of late.
DFS911.com has your Kurt Suzuki DFS profile for the coming days. We only have him as a solid daily fantasy sports pick on Tuesday. Let’s review.
Tuesday May 12
Tigers starting pitcher Alfredo Simon's exposure to Twins batters has been minimal but Kurt Suzuki is 4-for-7 against him with two homeruns. He’s come alive somewhat in recent games.
Gambling911.com has your daily fantasy sports MLB picks and previews for May 11 along with the long range forecast.
Monday May 11
Series: Orioles vs. Blue Jays
Ubaldo Jimenez He’s 2-2 on the season thus far but only lasted four innings in Wednesday's loss to the Mets. Overall he has pitched especially well to start the season.
Early indications are that Brewers Matt Garza is going to get hammered by a Cubs team that has stood their ground against him in the past.
The current Cubs roster is batting .329 against Garza. The Milwaukee starter is 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA in three career starts against the Cubs.
And the primary culprit that should make daily fantasy players happy would be Miguel Montero, who has an impressive .400 ERA over the past seven days and is 7-for-17 against Garza.
Montero comes priced at $2800.

FanDuel.com, the world leader in daily fantasy sports, has published their DFS Baseball plays for the top two pitchers May 10.
Felix Hernandez is priced higher than any other starter today but does present the best potential, according to FanDuel.com.
This is due to his dominance over an Oakland team, a team that has only hit .222 off of Hernandez.
The Mariners starter is coming in at $11300 Sunday.
Danny Salazar comes in with a $7800 price tag.
Despite our sister site Gambling911.com being on the UNDER 9 in Sunday’s Red Sox vs. Blue Jays matchup, there are plenty of daily fantasy picks on our radar.
The pitching matchup consists of R.A Dickey vs. Clay Buchholz and both have had their problems with some of the opposing club’s top batters.
Xander Bogaerts is 7-for-14 against Dickey with 4 RBIs. He went 1-for-3 in his last appearance against Dickey.
Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz has been struggling of late and he’s not likely to get much of a breather against the likes of Toronto’s Ryan Goins.
The good news for Buchholz is that Goins hasn’t had any hits against Boston in this series thus far despite 7 at bats.
The bad news for Buchholz is that the Blue Jays leftie has gone 7-for-14 against him. That includes one double, one triple and four RBIs.
Goins is priced at $2300, a bargain perhaps under these circumstances. Still, one cannot overlook his poor play overall in the past 10 games.
Gambling911.com has your Braves vs. Nationals series daily fantasy sports picks for Saturday’s game.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Julio Teheran (3-1, 3.82 ERA) vs. Nationals RH Doug Fister (2-1, 2.61)
Fister has permitted 4 or more hits in his five starts this season. Two of those games went over while another hit 7.
Fister has had difficulties against Kelly Johnson (3-for-6 at bats with 2 RBIs and a homerun). Alberto Callaspo is 7-for-19 against Fister but has struggled a bit of late.
We like Anibal Sanchez today but whether he can muster up enough quality points to help daily fantasy MLB players today we’re not entirely confident.
Priced at $8.6K you would have to consider him as a starter. The 31-year-old owns a 1.40 ERA in eight career starts against Kansas City and nobody on the current Royals roster with 4 at bats or more has gone over .286 against him.
For us here at DFS911.com, Brett Gardner presents a slightly better option than Jacoby Ellsbury going up against Wei-Yin Chen.
Like Ellsbury, Gardner is batting well of late and he’s also fared well against Chen going 5-for-15 with five RBIs, two doubles and a homerun.
Gardner is batting .357 so far this month. He’s 7-for-28 at bats with four doubles and a homer. He and Ellsbury combined for 3-for-7 in their 5-4 victory against the Orioles Friday night.
