Well, guys, it has been a pretty sweet DFS year for me so far. Here is my hit from a few weeks ago:
Sunday’s slate features horrible weather across the country and this slate is tough to gauge at this point. Most of the games on the slate are at risk of delay or postponement so it is tough to find a stackable team. Of course, the teams in domes will play, but almost everyone playing outside is iffy. That makes today a risky propositon and I would recommend playing tournaments only today. Without further ado, let’s get to work…

Michael Conforto , OF NYM
|AVG||HR||RBI||R||FPTS per PA|
|SPLIT RANKS TOOL||FAVORABLE MATCHUPS TOOL||TEAM STACKS TOOL||BOMB DETECTOR||AVG TOOL RATING||RC RATING|
|NAME||L/R||wOBA vs. Hitter L/R||SLUG vs Hitter L/R|
Weather on this slate is just plain brutal as there are about five separate games that could potentially get postponed and a few other spots that are iffy. Citi Field looks like it should have rain throughout the course of the day but it is questionable as to whether it will be enough to cause of a delay or even postponement. Judging by the forecast, this game should be able to play, which is excellent news for Mets hitters against Jhoulys Chacin. Not only has Chacin only struck out left-handed hitters (LHHs) at a porous 3.7-percent rate this year but he has also allowed a 40.0-percent hard hit rate to the handedness. Last year, lefties hit the ball in the air more than five percentage points higher against Chacin than righties did and his peripherals in the split (5.46 FIP, 5.55 xFIP) were just ugly. Oh, by the way, Michael Conforto slashed .303/.417/.595 versus right-handed pitching (RHP) last year with a .292 ISO, .420 wOBA, 164 wRC+ and 44.8-percent hard hit rate. Yeah, the advantage goes to Conforto here, and he is just the first of many Mets worth considering.
