Most MLB teams have reached the halfway point of games played for the season and our MLB DFS leaderboard continues to tighten up including a top for the top spot on the Hitting side between RotoGrinders – Consensus and FantasyTeamAdvice. DailyFantasySportsRankings also rises into the Top 3 on both the pitching and hitting leaderboards. It should be fun second half of the season to see which experts can separate themselves from the pack!

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. Also, review how all the MLB DFS analysts fared this past week with a day-by-day breakdown of each scored and ranking for the day and the week. I will also post 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.
