Today's starting pitchers, and their accumulated career stats versus the opposing hitter's of the team they're facing. Numbers are aggregate.

Key: SO/AB = Strikeout per AB - This is a key statistic on Draftstreet for pitching. Strikeouts are worth .75 pts and vital to your pitcher's final score. So, the higher the better for our purposes here. Anything above .25 is considered very good.

Daily fantasy sports sites take many statistics into account when determining salary values. The more exact the salary for a player is in relation to his expected performance, the harder it is to gain an edge against your competitors, effectively making no one fantasy sports participant better than the other. That being said, most sites don't take everything into account when posting salaries for players each day. One way to gain an edge is looking at specific hitter versus pitcher matchups each day. If we find that a particular hitter absolutely kills the starter he is going against that day, we might find value in the price of the player in relation to his actual salary. Below is a list of those players updated daily.

What are daily fantasy sports?

Daily Fantasy Sports is a new way to play fantasy sports. Rather than drafting a team and following those players the entire year, you can draft a new team each day, and winners are determined at the end of that day's games. It's an incredibly fast and addictive way to play fantasy sports. Many people are actually using it as a way to make a living (just like online poker) by entering dozens of leagues every day across multiple sites.

Are daily fantasy sports legal?

We realize it does seem like gambling since you're winning or losing money on sports contests each night, but according to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 these daily and weekly (for football) contests are perfectly legal to operate and participate in, so there's absolutely nothing to worry about!

Which sites are the best for daily fantasy leagues?

As with all new industries, not all sites are created equal. Some take a higher rake percentage. Some payout to winners more slowly (or don't even payout at all). And, vast differences in user experience, types of games and leagues and dozens of other things exist. DailyFantasySports.net reviews the top daily fantasy sports sites.
