The Pitching Leaderboard had some big changes at the top with RotoGrinders 6-pack taking over the lead with Rotowire moving up into the second spot. Meanwhile, the Hitting Leaderboard remained about the same with FantasyTeamAdvice leading the way and DailyOverlay – On the Hill moving up one spot into 2nd place. Also, both ScoutFantasy and DailyRoto led the way in sleeper picks this past week with five each. In general, the standings are still fluctuating from week to week quite a bit as we are still fairly early in the MLB season with plenty of time for MLB DFS analysts to make a move.

Check out the top experts on the Overall Leaderboard and as always you can check out the full MLB Expert Standings to make sure that you’re up to speed on who is making the grade.

Pitchers

#1) RotoGrinders 6-pack (Score: 5.36) moves back into the top spot on the Pitcher’s side overall. With only a few pitchers picks each week the 6-pack’s DO score will continue to be volatile but with two 1st place finished this past week it moves into the top spot.

#3) DailyFantasyNerd (Score: 5.03) drops down to 3rd place after occupying the top spot last week. They had one 1st place finish on Thursday but failed to reach the Top 10 any other day this week.

Hitters

#1) FantasyTeamAdvice (Score: 3.53) remains in the top spot on the Hitter’s side with a solid week including three Top 4 finishes.

#2) DailyOverlay – On the Hill (Score: 3.26) moves up one spot into 2nd place overall fueled by two Top 3 finishes on Monday and Tuesday and a 6th place on Wednesday.

#3) RotoGrinders – Consensus (Score: 3.25) cracked the Top 3 in the hitter standings with a good week that saw them finish in the Top 7 every day.
