SF Giants Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Be sure to visit our official daily hub at MLB DFS Picks Today page for daily coverage on each slate for Draftkings and Fanduel. 

  1. Mike Yastrzemski

An interesting late blooming prospect that has impressive rookie xWOBA, SLG, and pure power. Could be best hitter on the team.

2. Buster Posey Will Not Play this Season.

His SO% went up last year as he provides no value in DFS.

3. Brandon Belt Starting season on injured list.

I was surprised he had a full season of healthy plate appearances and put up this dissapointing season as the prior years he did better in X stats. Has maintained his good walk numbers getting on base.

4. Evan Longoria

Lost his power in recent years, then had a bit of a resuregence in 2019 as he’s improved his xWOBA numbers significantly to .352. SLGing is also well along which is why is getting back up to higher ISO.

5. Alex Dickerson

When a guy who has not played much has high hard contact and strikes out below 20% you may have something if he can keep healthy.

6. Brandon Crawford

Does not exceed anywhere. The savvy veteran is a decent ground ball hitter and fielder. Not much for DFS.

7. Mauricio Dubon

Seemed like he would be a good raw power and speed combo, but not been around too long. We’ll see what he does with an opportunity.

8. Billy Hamilton4

Still a speed sprinter, which shows on his stat cast rankings as #20

9. Jaylin Davis

Has a bit of pop off his bat in only 42 AB’s.

SP1: Johnny Cueto:

Opening day starter should be stretched out to 80 pitches for opening night. We have to remember this was a high GB SP for the Giants in 16′ few HR’s allowed and almost a SO per Inning. Could not keep his HR’s allowed number down in small sample seasons since then.

SP2: Jeff Samardza

An innings guy will get you what you need as the #2 starter in leagues and DFS. Still a decent pitcher overall as he kept his WHIP down to 1.18 and and BB% down to 6. and a 3.5 K/BB over last 3 yrs.

SP3: Kevin Gausman

It looks like Gausman may never develop into and effective pitcher for fantasy other then stacking against on any consistent basis. Has 10K/9 upside for however many innings he can manage before blowup.

SP4: Tyler Beede on 60 day injured. Will miss season.

SP5: Derek Rodriquez

Potential RP spot as nothing has yet been solidified.
