We are breaking up the Thursday slate to provide two MLB Weighted Consensus rankings. This one will provide data from the DFS experts for the six-game early slate. The early slate looks pretty cut and dry on the pitching front with one pitcher standing alone at the top with two definitive options rounding out the top three. However, on the hitting side things are wide open with a variety of stacking options and relatively flat rank scores at each position. Stay tuned into DailyOverlay all day for your MLB fix.
The Weighted Consensus for the MLB is where we publish an in-depth version of rankings every day that considers each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score for hitters and pitchers is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. This method gives the higher rated experts picks more weight when compiling the overall player rankings for the day. We will include all players that generate a Rank Score of at least 6.0.
