I am experimenting with a little different format for the MLB Weekly Grading Recap article this week by providing a grid of results for all of the MLB DFS experts that we gather picks from and grade each day. The results grids are split out into Pitchers and Hitters and provide each expert’s DailyOverlay score and their daily rank followed by their average for the week.

I will still list out the top experts on the Overall Leaderboard and as always you can check out our MLB Expert Standings to make sure that you’re up to speed on who is making the grade. There will still be the list of Sleeper picks that received an A+ grade and were recommended by just one expert. This week I will also begin to add the Ownership Percentages by position by count which are used to help project player ownership in our Weighted Consensus article every day.

Also, don’t forget to sign up to be a premium member so that you don’t miss out on any content. We are still offering a FREE 7-DAY TRIAL. You’ll be glad you signed up!

As a reminder, we are currently gathering selections and publishing the MLB Industry Weighted Consensus article each weekday during the season, so be sure to check back about an hour or so before the first pitch of the first game to get a look at the consensus picks for the day. For the 2018 season, we are grading 20 experts that provide pitcher selections and 21 that provide hitter selections daily.

Leaderboard

The top-3 for both pitchers and hitters are below. Be sure to check out the full MLB Expert Standings to see how your favorite experts check out.

Pitchers

#1) RotoGrinders 6-pack (Score: 7.00) jumped into first place as Beermakers Fan just started to include pitchers in his 6-pack video this week and started out strong. Could be a nice addition to the Consensus.

#2) DailyFantasySportsRankings (Score: 6.38) moves up one spot into second place as many experts greatly increased their DailyOverlay score this week with some strong pitching recommendations.

#3) Rotoballer (Score: 6.12) had the best week of any DFS expert on the pitching side this week and it resulted in them moving up the standings into 3rd place.

Hitters

#1) FantasyTeamAdvice (Score: 3.35) holds onto the top spot on the hitting side with a 6th place finish for the week including two Top 2 finishes on Thursday and Friday.

#2) RotoGrinders – Consensus (Score: 3.30) moves up one spot into 2nd place overall with another solid week consisting of Top 8 finishes each day.

#3) DailyOverlay – On the Hill (Score: 3.27) “yours truly” leaps into the Top 3 on the hitting side thanks to the top DailyOverlay hitting scores for the week including four Top 6 finishes.
